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.
