Patient Info

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytrophan) is an amino acid which the body uses to produce Serotonin. Serotonin is involved in controlling and regulating sleep, depression, anxiety, appetite, temperature, sexual behaviour and pain sensation. 5-HTP is the active intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-Tryptophan and serotonin, it readily crosses the brain barrier without needing a transport molecule as does L-Tryptophan. 5-HTP may increase other neurotransmitters like melatonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and beta-endorphin. This provides 5-HTP with some unique brain chemistry normalising ability.

Clinicians 5-HTP may be useful in helping conditions such as sleep loss, anxiety and depression.This is especially useful as long term use of pharmaceutical medication for such conditions can bring side effects and dependency. Clinicians 5-HTP may be helpful as a nutrient support for the following conditions: depressive tendencies, fibromyalgia syndrome, chronic headache and disturbed sleep.

Warning Do not use Clinicans 5-HTP during pregnancy and Lactation.
