5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a compound made in the body from the amino acid, tryptophan. Once in the 5-HTP state, it goes on to form serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and behaviour, and then is further metabolized into melatonin.

CanPrev’s 5-HTP 100 is sourced from the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia and enhanced with Vitamin B6 and Magnesium which are important cofactors to help the body convert and utilize 5-HTP.
