What is 5-HTP?

5-HTP, or 5-Hydroxytryptophan, is a chemical by-product synthesized in the body starting from the essential amino acid tryptophan.

5-HTP is also the immediate precursor of serotonin! As a nootropic supplement, 5-HTP is commonly manufactured from the seeds of an African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia.

What is Tryptophan?

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid which constitutes many proteins and helps the body in its natural production of melatonin and serotonin, both fundamental to regulate sleep and mood.
Other sources of tryptophan are foods rich in protein such as beef, fish and dairy products.

What is Serotonin?

Serotonin is a chemical that allows communication between nerve cells in your brain and body. Furthermore, Serotonin supports the normal functioning of your mood, sleep, digestion, bone health and many more!
Low serotonin levels can trouble the natural functioning of your body, causing physical and psychological health problems.

What is melatonin?

Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally by the brain that allows the regulation of sleep, helping your circadian rhythms.
With the exposure to bright lights during the night, the production of melatonin will stop, potentially interfering with your sleep.

What are its benefits?

5-HTP derives from tryptophan and it could therefore help support the normal functioning of the nervous system. *
Being a precursor of melatonin, it might help with the normal sleep regulation of your body.*

Stacking 5-HTP

Magnesium is fundamental when it comes to reducing fatigue and tiredness: try stacking it with 5-HTP for an optimal sleep support!*

Why choose Cerebra?

At Cerebra we know that everybody is different, and sometimes a pre-mixed supplement just doesn’t work for you. That’s why we choose to not mix our pure products with any additives, to offer you complete control over your supplement choice.
Our products are periodically tested and manually checked to ensure the best possible quality, and all of our capsules are vegetarian.

*This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Dosage per day: 50 – 150 mg Extended usage: 5-HTP does not appear to be habit-forming. Usage notes: Taking 5-HTP supplementation alone leads to the depletion of dopamine and the rest of the catecholamines. To prevent disrupting the delicate balance of your serotonin and dopamine levels, stack 5-HTP with a dopamine precursor, like L-Tyrosine or L-DOPA, along with B-vitamins and sulfur-containing amino acid (taurine, methionine, cysteine, or homocysteine).

  • Heartburn
  • Heart palpitations
  • Headache
  • Stomach pain
