Double Potency 5-HTP Extra is a comprehensive formula designed to support mood and relaxation.*

Central to this formulation is 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), a naturally occurring amino acid that is the immediate precursor of Serotonin.* This plant-derived compound sourced from the Griffonia simplicifolia, a climbing shrub native to West and Central Africa, helps the body to naturally produce this hormone, helping you attain an improved state of well-being.*

To complement the benefits of 5-HTP, this product also features L-Theanine that helps to increase alpha brain waves thereby supporting relaxation of the mind and body.* This product also includes other botanicals such as Holy Basil and Damiana that have been used in traditional mood formulas and are known for their adaptogenic properties.* This product can be taken daily to help support mood and relaxation, and in doing so, helps promote a more balanced state of mind.*

At the center of this formula is 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), sourced from the Griffonia simplicifolia, a climbing shrub native to Africa. 5-HTP is the intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino-acid tryptophan to serotonin, one of the most important brain neurotransmitters. Serotonin is implicated in the regulation of sleep, mood, and other body functions.[3]

Unlike serotonin, 5-HTP is able to cross the blood-brain barrier to support the body’s natural production of this neurotransmitter. Additionally, taking 5-HTP allows bypassing the conversion of L-tryptophan into 5-HTP, which is the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of serotonin.

Preliminary research suggests that 5-HTP may help support mood and a more balanced and positive state of well-being.[4]

Double-Potency 5-HTP Extra™ also supplies vitamin B6. This vitamin plays a key role in multiple energy-producing pathways in the body and is necessary for proper mental and physical functions. It acts as a coenzyme for many reactions, including the conversion of 5-HTP into serotonin.[3]

In addition to 5-HTP and vitamin B6, Double-Potency 5-HTP Extra™ includes traditional uplifting botanicals like Rhodiola, Damiana, and Saffron, which have been used in mood support formulas for centuries. Plus, it delivers a generous dose of the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D3, which plays a vital role in mood regulation.[5]
