5-HTP 100

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

Sleeping well and feeling good are two of life’s necessities that keep us healthy and happy. But sometimes we need a little help maintaining both, and if we can get relief from a single source, all the better. Three key ingredients form CanPrev’s 5-HTP 100 and work together to promote restful sleep and healthy mood. 5-HTP 100 also works to help relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia (pain, anxiety, morning stiffness and fatigue) and reduce the severity and duration of migraine and tension headaches when taken as a preventative. Can one product do all that? Absolutely.

You get tryptophan from eating protein-rich foods. Then, your body makes 5-HTP from the amino acid, tryptophan. Next, it goes on to form serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and behaviour. Lastly, it is further metabolized into melatonin. You can depend on tryptophan as a precursor to the development of serotonin, but research has shown 5-HTP to be much more efficient at delivering serotonin to the brain.

Serotonin on its own is not able to break through the blood brain barrier, but 5-HTP can. Therefore, it acts as the avenue for serotonin to get into the brain with its mood lifting and sleep inducing properties.
