Solal 5-HTP

Regular price R 239.00 R 0.00

Tryptophan hydroxylase catalyzes the first rate-limiting step of serotonin biosynthesis by converting L-tryptophan to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). 5-HTP is then converted into serotonin. Vitamin B6 is a cofactor for the endogenous conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin via the 5-HTP decarboxylase enzyme. Serotonin controls a variety of functions in the human body and brain. Inadequate serotonin is believed to play a role in depression and mood disturbances. Serotonin is also converted into melatonin in the pineal gland where it plays an important role in the human sleep cycle (circadian rhythm).

Promotes healthy mood balance and sleep. Also, helps reduce cravings (such as for carbohydrates)
