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.

Too strong for my body

This is a great price for this supplement. If you aren't sensitive to supplements this probably would be great for you! It was too much for me and I was even cutting them in half. Made me jittery and anxious. Everyone's body is different. Definitely effective!
