Increase Serotonin Levels Naturally

100 mg of Pure 5-HTP for Positive Mood, Anxiety Relief and Good Sleep

Low serotonin levels have been correlated with depression, fibromyalgia, insomnia, migraines/headaches and obesity. Preliminary research suggests that you can increase serotonin levels in the brain by taking supplementary 5-HTP.1

The body makes 5-HTP from tryptophan, an essential amino acid found naturally in foods such as turkey, eggs and a variety of nuts, seeds and legumes. 5-HTP, in turn, converts directly into serotonin, which is a brain chemical that helps regulate mood, sleep, anxiety, appetite and pain.

Nested Naturals 5-HTP gives the brain what it needs to produce more serotonin naturally. It doesn’t rewire brain circuitry like some prescription drugs do; it feeds the brain. Derived from a plant native to West and Central Africa, it’s natural and non-habit forming.

This is pure 5-HTP, with no additional nutrients. Check out our Mood Lift formula for a blend of 5-HTP plus additional mood supporting vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

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

A Natural Serotonin Booster

Enhances Mood

Low serotonin levels in your brain can contribute to depressed mood and a general negative feeling in your body. Keeping a stable and healthy level of serotonin helps reduce negative feelings and improving your overall mood.

Improves Sleep

Studies have shown that by increasing your serotonin levels by taking 5-HTP, you can also increase the levels of natural melatonin – the chemical that regulates sleep/wake cycles in your body. By increasing serotonin with 5-HTP, you’re also increasing your levels of melatonin, helping you sleep better at night.5

Eases Anxiety

Nested Naturals 5-HTP helps to ease you into a calm & relaxed state by increasing the serotonin levels in your brain. Healthy and balanced serotonin levels improve your general mood, making you feel happier and less stressed out.3,4

Your Questions, Our Answers

See the most popular questions asked about 5-HTP.

What is 5-HTP?

5-HTP is a chemical that is essential for the brain. The body makes 5-HTP from tryptophan, an essential amino acid found naturally in foods such as turkey. 5-HTP, in turn, converts directly into serotonin, which is a brain chemical that helps regulate mood, sleep, anxiety, appetite and pain.

Nested Naturals 5-HTP is a natural supplement derived from Griffonia simplicifolia, a plant native to West and Central Africa. It’s a plant-based version of the same 5-HTP chemical in the brain.

What does 5-HTP do?

When you take 5-HTP, your body converts this supplementary 5-HTP directly into serotonin. It enhances the serotonin levels produced by your body on its own. Preliminary research suggests that supplementing with 5-HTP may help a wide variety of conditions related to low serotonin levels, including depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, insomnia, migraines/headaches and obesity.

Can I take Nested Naturals 5-HTP to help my depression?

Low levels of serotonin are connected with some types of depression. There is preliminary research that shows taking 5-HTP increases serotonin production which in turn can improve symptoms of mild to medium depression. However, if you have been diagnosed with depression, please speak with your doctor before taking this or any other supplement.

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

Will Nested Naturals 5-HTP improve my sleep?

Studies have shown that by increasing your serotonin levels by taking 5-HTP, you can also increase the levels of natural melatonin, the chemical that regulates sleep/wake cycles in your body. By increasing serotonin with 5-HTP, you’re also increasing your levels of melatonin, helping you sleep better at night.

How does this differ from Nested Naturals Mood Lift?

Each capsule of Nested Naturals Mood Lift includes 100mg of 5-HTP plus a blend of other mood supporting vitamins, minerals and amino acids that work together harmoniously. It’s a gentle, natural antidepressant formulated both to help calm stressed nerves and rebuild positive energy.

Nested Naturals Mood Lift is intended as a “one a day” supplement—like a multivitamin formulated just for mood. Nested Naturals 5-HTP doesn’t include anything other than 5-HTP in the capsule.

For people struggling with low mood, irritability and/or mild anxiety, we often recommend starting with Mood Lift. If it doesn’t give you enough of a boost after a few weeks, you can switch to Nested Naturals 5-HTP, which allows you to increase the dosage as needed up to 400 mg per day.

When should I take Nested Naturals 5-HTP?

Many people take 5-HTP in the morning. If you are taking more than 100 mg, you may benefit by splitting into doses 12 hours apart. There is some preliminary research showing that taking 5-HTP with a meal can help with weight loss by making you feel full and satisfied sooner.
