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. Unbalanced serotonin levels may bring on the blue meanies and disrupt normal sleep habits.1,2 Healthy levels of serotonin are attributed to a positive mood.3

Our bodies make serotonin from certain foods we eat--think turkey and lentils, not Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia (sorry!). Your gut produces the majority of the total serotonin in your body.You have more serotonin in your gut than in your grey matter. You’re probably thinking what we’re thinking ... what if you changed your supplementation so that your body gets more of what it needs to make more serotonin?

Enter 5-HTP, a little serotonin-making machine that is naturally produced in your body from the amino acid tryptophan. Unlike tryptophan, 5-HTP can only be converted to serotonin and can cross the blood-brain barrier.Preliminary research suggests that you can increase serotonin levels in the brain by taking supplemental 5-HTP.6

Nested Naturals 5-HTP 100 mg is a supplement derived from Griffonia simplicifolia, a plant native to West and Central Africa. Nested Naturals 5-HTP gives the body what it needs to support balanced serotonin levels, it is naturally sourced and promotes a feeling of overall wellness.

Important: If you are currently taking prescription antidepressants, please consult with your physician before taking 5-HTP. The combination could cause serious side-effects
