Supports Sleep. By enhancing the supply of serotonin, 5-HTP helps to support healthy central nervous system function, including sleep. Research shows that older adults who supplement with 5-HTP helped have reduced sleep latency—the time it takes to fall asleep. Another study found that 5-HTP increased REM sleep from 5% to 53%. (1,2)
Supports Cognitive Function. 5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan) promotes the body's healthy production of serotonin, an important substance that supports normal nerve and brain function. (3)
Supports Healthy Mood. 5-HTP increases serotonin levels, maintaining balanced neurotransmitter activity in the brain. Serotonin is found in the brain and central nervous system and supports balanced mood and behavior. (4)

- 5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan) promotes the body's healthy production of serotonin, an important substance that supports normal nerve and brain function. Serotonin appears to help maintain balanced sleep patterns, moods, weight loss, and the inflammation response system.
- The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in many dietary proteins. Supplemental 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia, a West African plant. 5-HTP supports the production of serotonin to help maintain healthy nerve and brain function. Serotonin is found in the brain and central nervous system, and supports balanced mood, behavior, sleep patterns and weight loss.
Natural Support for Maintaining Healthy Serotonin Levels
- Safe nutritional support for maintaining serotonin levels is available with 5-HTP. Serotonin is synthesized in a two-step process where L-tryptophan is converted to 5-HTP, which is then converted to serotonin. 5-HTP works by supporting healthy levels of serotonin in the brain. By enhancing the supply of serotonin, 5-HTP helps to nutritionally support healthy central nervous system function such as sleep, appetite, mood patterns and weight loss. Since the early 1970's Italian researcher Federigo Sicuteri, M.D., at the University of Florence has researched serotonin and the use of 5-HTP.
High Dose of 5-HTP. Many other 5-HTP supplements on the market use 50-100 mg of 5-HTP, whereas ProHealth’s 5-HTP Extra Strength provides 200 mg per serving. This dose can better support healthy mood and sleep patterns.

I take this about an hour before bed. And sleep great!
Really helps to keep symptoms under control.
I recently started using this product again for my ongoing sleep problems. I'm finding it is helping me sleep more deeply and I am waking up less throughout the night. Great Product!
A quality product that supplies my body with the amino acid 5 HTP that I need. I've taken it for 11 years with excellent results.
I use this product at night for a longer restful sleep. It helps me sleep comfortably for 5 to 6 hours straight.
I'd like to give 5-HTP 200 mg. a rating of 5....it has helped me alot
This is a great product and started helping with sleep and an overall feeling of well being within days. It was amazing how quickly it helped and how much it helped. It is great to awaken in the morning and feel like I got a good night's sleep and feel like getting up and being productive.
