5-HTP Extended Release by Seeking Health provides natural L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia plant. 5-HTP is not found in significant amounts in a typical diet. The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in our diets. However, eating food that contains L-tryptophan does not significantly increase 5-HTP levels, because L-tryptophan may be diverted to other functions, such as niacin production. 5-HTP is a precursor to brain neurotransmitters which are important for emotional well-being. Neurotransmitter levels in the brain are highly dependent on the availability of 5-HTP within the central nervous system. 5-HTP can cross the blood-brain barrier without the requirement of a transport carrier.*


Neurotransmitters control major body functions including movement, emotional response, and the physical ability to experience pleasure and pain. These functions also include the appetite center of the brain. 5-HTP may help support a healthy appetite and healthy sleep. Adequate neurotransmitter levels play a significant role in melatonin production, the hormone responsible for regulating biological rhythms, such as sleep.*


This extended release version of our popular 5-HTP products provides a higher dose of 5-HTP - 200 mg per tablet - designed to release slowly over a few hours. For a lower dose product or a faster release delivery method, consider our 5-HTP Capsules.

This actually works…

I very reluctantly got off unisom after giving birth and this product was recommended to me by my doc. I was skeptical, but am here to say it actually works. And this is coming from someone who’s currently in the postpartum/newborn sleep deprivation world. It settles me and actually helps me get into deeper sleep, even when that sleep comes in 2 hour stints. I love that it’s all natural! Highly recommend!

Great for Stress Relief

Contains no sensitizing fillers, which could cause reactions in sensitive people, at least from our family's experience. Had to throw out / reject a number of other brands due to this. Very good price and, as usual, another results-driven supplement by SK. Thank you!
