5-HTP Capsules by Seeking Health provide 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 capsule version of our popular 5-HTP products provides a modest dose of 5-HTP - 50 mg per capsule. For the same dosage in a lozenge form (great for those who struggle with swallowing capsules) consider our 5-HTP Lozenges. For a higher dose product with a slower release format, consider our 5-HTP Extended Release.
