5-htp is an isolated nutrient extracted from the griffonia seed. It is a naturally occurring chemical made in the body, and it is the pre-cursor to our feel good chemical messenger serotonin (5-ht). 
Serotonin plays a vital role in our biochemistry because it regulates mood, anxiety, appetite & sleep as well as helping to manage the impact of stress.
  • Feel happy
  • Regulate stress
  • Manage anxiety
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Suppress appetite

is it for you?

5-htp is for anybody looking to increase their serotonin levels. 5-htp is suitable for people who live a stressful lifestyle, work long hours, struggle sleeping and wish to maintain health and enhance performance. 

Feel better. Perform better. You. Naturally

  • Anybody with a lower than normal mood.
  • Anybody with high stress; serotonin is involved inregulating cortisol secretion receptors.
  • Anybody who suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
  • Anybody looking to increase their serotonin levels.

5-htp may also benefit anybody with a condition linked to low levels of serotonin.

 our 5-htp

The UK’s most premium 5-htp brand. We use a 102.5mg of standardised extract to provide the smallest, nutrient dense tablet with no unnecessary bulking agents.
  • 100% natural 5-htp from griffonia seed.
  • GMP & ISOQAR certified.
  • 5* review rating.
  • Twice the strength of Holland & Barrett and MyProtein.
  • Easy to swallow tablets.
  • Lightweight eco-friendly foil packaging.
  • No unnecessary bulking agents 

How it works

  • 5-htp crosses the blood-brain barrier and goes through a decarboxylase to become serotonin (5-ht).
  • Absorption of 5-htp is not influenced by other amino acids & therefore it can be taken with or without meals, without losing its efficacy.
  • 5-htp has a much higher efficacy than tryptophan which is available in small amounts in foods such as red meats & seeds because tryptophan cannot cross the blood brain barrier without the help of transporter molecules.
  • The therapeutic administration of 5-HTP may be efficient in depression, fibromyalgia, suppressing appetite and insomnia

*Do not take with anti-depressants. 5-htp increases a brain chemical called serotonin. taking 5-htp along with these medications for depression might increase serotonin too much and cause serious side effects including nausea and heart problems. these include the following brand combinations; 5-htp and Prozac, 5-htp and Zoloft, 5-htp and Paxil, 5-htp and Lexapor. 5-htp and any SSRI should not be taken together
