5-HTP Lozenge, by Seeking Health, provides 50 mg of 5-hydroxytryptophan, an amino acid precursor of the important neurotransmitter, serotonin. This dietary supplement provides a natural source of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia plant. 5-HTP may help support cognitive and mood health.* Key Benefits and Actions:
  • Serotonin Precursor: Serotonin levels in the brain are highly dependent on the availability of 5-HTP within the central nervous system.* 5-HTP easily crosses the blood-brain barrier without the requirement of a transport carrier. Adequate serotonin levels also play a significant role in melatonin production.*
  • May help support normal mood regulation, sleep quality, and appetite*
  • A natural compound biologically present in the body. It is extracted from the seeds of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia) for use in supplements*
  • Well-absorbed orally and is not affected by other amino acids*

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the source? Supplemental 5-HTP is derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a West African shrub. 5-HTP is not found in significant amounts in a typical diet. The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in many dietary proteins. However, eating food that contains L-tryptophan does not significantly increase 5-HTP levels. How much is usually taken? The amount of 5-HTP needed varies between individuals. The suggested use is 1 lozenge away from food any time of day. We ask that you check with your healthcare professional if you are unsure if the suggested use is right for you. Are there any side effects or precautions? Some people taking large amounts of 5-HTP experience nausea or, less often, headache, sleepiness, muscle pain, or anxiety. 5-HTP should not be taken with antidepressants, weight-control drugs, other serotonin modifying agents, or substances known to cause liver damage. Individuals with liver disease may not be able to adequately regulate 5-HTP. Those suffering from autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma may be more sensitive than others to 5-HTP. Is this product safe for pregnant women? The safety of 5-HTP during pregnancy or breast-feeding is unknown at this time. We recommend that pregnant or lactating women consult with their healthcare professionals prior to using 5-HTP. Is this product suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians? Yes, this product is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Is this product free of Magnesium Stearate? This product does not contain magnesium stearate.
