Nervous system support
5-HTP may be important due to its involvement in sleep patterns. It is converted into a neurotransmitter called serotonin, which works to regulate behaviors and moods. Serotonin is involved in the wake and sleep cycles that allow your body to get the good night’s rest it needs to repair itself. Its involvement in brain activity may promote emotional well-being and lessen anxiety, as well as possibly help moderate appetite and food cravings to help maintain a healthy weight as part of a diet and exercise regimen. 5-HTP may also support comfort in the cranial vessel by aiding healthy blood circulation in the brain.
