Support Balanced Serotonin Levels Naturally

100 mg of Pure 5-HTP for Positive Mood, Relaxed States and Healthy Sleep Habits

Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps regulate mood, the sleep/wake cycle and appetite.1,2 Unbalanced serotonin levels may bring on the blue meanies and disrupt normal sleep habits. Healthy levels of serotonin are attributed to a positive mood.3

Enter 5-HTP, a little serotonin-making machine that is a product of the amino acid tryptophan. Unlike tryptophan, 5-HTP can only be converted to serotonin and can cross the blood-brain barrier with ease. Preliminary research 4 suggests that you can increase serotonin levels in the brain by taking supplemental 5-HTP.

Nested Naturals 5-HTP gives the body what it needs to support balanced serotonin levels. Derived from a plant native to West and Central Africa, it is naturally sourced and promotes a feeling of overall wellness.
