High Potency With Glycine, Taurine & Inositol Supports Positive Mood* A Dietary Supplement Vegetarian Formula SUGGESTED USAGE: Take 1 Vcap 1-4 times daily in divided doses, preferably on an empty stomach, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. If GI discomfort is experienced, take less or discontinue use.
HOW IT WORKS: 5-HTP is the intermediate precursor in the natural synthesis of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate mood, appetite, and sleep/wake cycles.* 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP can support healthy serotonin levels.* Glycine is known to bind to the NMDA receptor, where it exerts inhibitory and neuroprotective effects. In addition, Glycine has been shown to support memory and cognition in scientific studies.* This formula is further enhanced with Taurine and Inositol.
Warning: If you are currently taking antidepressant medications please consult a physician prior to use. May cause drowsiness.

5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).
5-HTP, also known as 5-hydroxytryptophan, is an amino acid that is the direct precursor for serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter. The production of serotonin starts with tryptophan, which is converted into 5-HTP, and then into serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in the regulation of mood and is also necessary for the production of melatonin. Melatonin is the main hormone responsible for the management of sleep.
5-HTP is extracted from the bean of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, a natural vegetable source. However, 5-HTP is not found in large amounts in the diet, and eating foods that contain tryptophan appears not to significantly increase 5-HTP levels.
This formulation also contains L-Tyrosine, an amino acid precursor of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, both of which are important for the maintenance of a balanced mood. The combination of 5-HTP and L-Tyrosine therefore can work synergistically to beneficially support healthy brain and neurochemistry.*
