What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which plays a role in many important functions, including sleep, appetite, memory, learning, mood, libido, digestion and endocrine regulation. Stress and age can diminish natural serotonin levels, leading to increased risk of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Our 200mg 5-HTP Plus formula with vitamin B6 is designed to naturally boost serotonin levels to help reduce stress, maintain an even mood, and encourage healthy sleep patterns.
The Mood-Weight Connection
There is a documented correlation between depression, anxiety, and weight gain. Stress triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which increases cravings for carbs and sugars and encourages the body to store abdominal fat. Healthy serotonin levels make it easier to lose weight by keeping cravings in check and creating feelings of satiety and well-being.
Third Party Tested for Purity and Potency
Unlike other brands that do not adhere to GMP standards, NatureWise 5-HTP is carefully tested by third party laboratories for purity and potency, as well as physical, chemical, and microbial contamination, guaranteeing the highest standards for quality and safety.
