Natural Factors 5-HTP 50mg
5-HTP is a derivative of tryptophan, the compound in turkey responsible for that sleepy, satisfied feeling. Because it is one step closer to serotonin than tryptophan, it is more effective at relieving symptoms associated with low serotonin. Unlike prescription antidepressants, 5-HTP boosts serotonin levels without unpleasant side effects, and does not create dependence. While 5-HTP can sometimes cause mild gastrointestinal side effects, Natural Factors enteric-coated caplets are designed to dissolve in the intestines rather than the stomach, significantly reducing the potential for nausea.

How it works
5-HTP provides highly bioavailable materials the body needs to make mood-enhancing serotonin. 5-HTP also regulates circadian rhythms to increase sleep quality. Serotonin and melatonin (the hormone that helps us sleep) are part of a complementary cycle in the body that relies on the same raw materials, including 5-HTP. Because normal serotonin levels help us feel satiated, or full, after eating, 5-HTP can also help curb appetite and carbohydrate cravings. Serotonin also controls neurological pathways responsible for experiencing pain; 5-HTP can help relieve chronic pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Migraine headaches are associated with low serotonin levels; by boosting them, 5-HTP can help prevent recurrent migraines and reduce headache symptoms.
