    The Science

    5-HTP functions as the direct precursor to serotonin, effectively elevating its production in the brain. Higher serotonin levels translate to enhanced mood, reduced depression, and improved feelings of well-being. Additionally, serotonin plays a key role in modulating appetite by interacting with melanocortin receptors, resulting in increased feelings of fullness. This dual role of serotonin—boosting mood and controlling appetite—underscores the multifaceted benefits of 5-HTP supplementation.

    How will I know its working?

    Elevated mood and reduced episodes of depression or anxiety.
    Alleviation of fibromyalgia symptoms.
    Enhanced satiety after meals, leading to reduced food intake.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.

    Care should be taken if taking anti-depressants as this can cause a significant increase in serotonin levels. Always consult with your Doctor if you are taking these medications. 5 HTP supplements can be used to ease the side effects when taking such medication but should be done under professional guidance.
