NutriGold 5-HTP Gold uses 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), also known as oxitriptan, as a naturally occurring amino acid extracted from the beans of an African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. It is a chemical precursor as well as metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. The positive mood-supporting action of 5-HTP is thought to derive from its effect on the production of serotonin in central nervous system tissue. 5-HTP can help support positive mood, appetite management, relaxation, and restful sleep*
However, these benefits are only meaningful if the supplement is inherently safe, and some are not. In 1998, researchers at the Mayo Clinic asserted that several commercially available 5-HTP supplements contained trace levels of Peak-X, a substance that has been associated with eosinophilia myalgia syndrome and similar illnesses. Our 5-HTP Gold is manufactured using an extract that is guaranteed by an independent, third-party lab to be 100% free of Peak-X. You can be assured that you are getting an exceptionally pure product without the safety hazards.
