shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced
by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels may produce positive effects on
emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining
a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds
