5-HTP 60cps from 200mg
Pure 5-HTP is a well-known supplement that increases serotonin levels, alleviates mood swings and helps with depression. Furthermore, it reduces the time needed to sleep (extending the REM phase), reduces appetite, helps to lose weight, reduces pain tolerance and is a natural anti-migraine.
What is Pure Labs 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan)?
5-HTP is a naturally occurring substance that is obtained from the seeds of West African Griffonia Simplicifolia. Man has the ability to self produce it from L-tryptophan, an amino acid present in protein-containing products, although the consumption of this amino acid does not provide a constant growth of 5-HTP in the body.
In practice, 5-hydroxy-tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin (5-HT), which conversion involves the increase of this important hormone / neurotransmitter, playing an enormous role in many vital human functions.
5-HTP, taken orally, rapidly enters the bloodstream and its absorption capacity is over 70%. It is worth mentioning that the range of its application is enormous.
Pure Labs 5-HTP as a dietary supplement effectively helps during a strict diet, when serotonin levels decrease significantly. This in turn manifests itself with a strong carbohydrate appetite.
5-HTP acts effectively as an appetite "blocker" and helps to tackle hunger during a restrictive diet.
When serotonin levels are too low, sudden attacks of aggression, fatigue and depression can occur. Because the 5-HTP amino acid improves mood and increases energy level, the use of 5-HTP is much easier to persevere in the ongoing weight loss treatment.
