Also known as oxitriptan, 5-HTP is a naturally-occurring amino acid that supports your body’s overall health and well-being. 5-HTP is best known for its ability to naturally elevate your mood and support normal sleep patterns. This is because 5-HTP plays a crucial role in your body’s natural production of the compounds serotonin and melatonin.

Health benefits of 5-HTP**
Supports a healthy sleep cycle – Melatonin is considered a natural sleep aid. Having adequate levels of this hormone promotes deep and restful sleep, whereas having insufficient levels is linked to poor sleep quality. Supplementing with 5-HTP can help you maintain melatonin levels within the normal range. It also supports healthy sleep patterns.
Uplifts your mood – Serotonin is your body’s natural feel-good chemical. If you have low levels of serotonin, you may be more prone to experiencing depressed and anxious feelings. Fortunately, 5-HTP is a natural precursor to serotonin. This means that supplementing with 5-HTP can naturally elevate your mood and help reduce anxious feelings.
Promotes healthy brain function – A study published in the journal European Neurology reported that supplementing with 5-HTP can aid healthy cognitive function. 5-HTP promotes the production of serotonin, which performs vital functions in your brain. By helping you maintain optimal serotonin levels, 5-HTP can support healthy brain function.
Supports sensible weight management plans – According to a study published in the Journal of Neural Transmission, 5-HTP can promote feelings of fullness. This means that 5-HTP can support reasonable weight management goals, especially when accompanied by a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
How to use 5-HTP powder**
Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder can easily be added to your favorite shakes, smoothies, teas, juices and other beverages. Here are a few suggestions for maximizing your intake of 5-HTP powder:
For a good night’s sleep, simply take 200 mg of 5-HTP powder 30-45 minutes before going to bed. For best results, pair it with a high-quality Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) supplement and valerian root.
To support a positive mood, take 50-100 mg of 5-HTP powder three times a day with your meals. You can also take it alongside either an L-tyrosine supplement or vitamin B6.
If you want to achieve sensible weight management goals, take 250 mg of 5-HTP powder 30 minutes before a meal. It is best consumed with green tea or beverages rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
NOTE: Consult your naturopathic physician or healthcare provider to optimize your 5-HTP intake.
