5-HTP is a precursor of serotonin, known as the ‘feel good neurotransmitter’.

Serotonin is an extremely important neurotransmitter, implicated in the regulation of sleep; depression; anxiety; aggression; appetite; temperature; sexual behaviour; and pain sensation.

What may lead to low serotonin?
Many factors over time may lead to reduced serotonin. Among these: Prolonged stress; sleep deprivation; poor diet; genetic factors; digestive issues; certain medications; as well as lack of exercise and sunlight.

Why supplemental 5-HTP?
The clinical efficacy of 5-HTP is due to its ability to increase production of serotonin.

Medford’s 5-HTP+ formula is further enhanced with vitamin B6 and magnesium, which are important co-factors necessary for the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin.
