5-hydroxytryptophan, or 5-HTP for short, is a chemical that the body makes from the dietary amino acid Tryptophan and is essential for the synthesis of serotonin and melatonin which affects mood, sleep, and appetite.
5-HTP is produced commercially from the seeds of the Griffonia Simplicifolia, and is best taken in capsule form to help with better quality of sleep, enhanced mood, and appetite control on a daily basis.
Studies have shown that there is a correlation between supplementation with 5-HTP and the feeling of satiety, or feeling full, and therefore has a significant impact on weight loss.
TNT 5-HTP has also been shown to be an excellent sleep aid which, as this is when your body repairs itself and recovers from exercise, is important to anyone who trains regularly.
Furthermore, it has been shown to reduce the time required to get to sleep, reduce the number of times you wake up at night, increase the total duration of sleep, and generally improve the overall quality of sleep.
