Ultimate Mood 5-HTP influences serotonin and melatonin levels.
Ultimate Mood 5-HTP has L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) which is a safe, natural alternative to the amino acid tryptophan which in turn is used to form serotonin, a brain neurohormone essential for melatonin production, appetite control, and mood regulation. Our 5-HTP formula is a natural extract of griffonia seeds and certified free of Peak X.
Ultimate Mood 5-HTP may be used during the day to support healthy mood or appetite or at bedtime to support sleep.
Our modern, stressful lives lower levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin depletion leads to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. The pharmaceutical industry has responded to the serotonin crisis by creating a wide array of medications which seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Naturally restoring serotonin levels may help promote healthy mood levels and may also reduce food cravings.
5-HTP should not be taken with antidepressants, weight-control drugs, other serotonin-modifying agents, or substances known to cause liver damage. Individuals with liver disease may not be able to adequately regulate 5-HTP. Those suffering from autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma may be more sensitive than others to 5-HTP. The safety of 5-HTP during pregnancy or breast-feeding is unknown at this time. Use of 5-HTP should be in consultation with a knowledgeable healthcare professional.
