5 HTP | 100mg | Serotonin Booster | 60 Vegan capsules
5HTP is the abbreviation for 5-hydroxytryptophan. It’s an amino acid that helps the brain to produce serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is a hormone that makes you feel happy and calm and melatonin is a hormone that makes you sleepy. 5HTP is a precursor to both these hormones. That means that it’s converted into serotonin and melatonin in your body. Both of them are really important for getting a good night’s sleep. You produce 5HTP in your body - it’s what’s known as a by-product of L-Tryptophan. When L-Tryptophan enters the body and is converted into nutrients for the body, 5-hydroxytryptophan is created. If you’re having sleeping problems and feeling agitated, then Dr. Becky 5HTP can help.
When to use Dr. Becky 5HTP
The production of serotonin and melatonin is sometimes disrupted by stress and the fact that we keep ourselves awake. Melatonin is a substance that makes you sleepy. Your brain starts producing it when the sun goes down and it gets dark outside. That’s why you often start yawning when it’s getting dark. Your body starts getting ready to go to bed. When we get too much exposure to light in our homes and use screens, the production of melatonin in our brains gets disrupted. Actually, we just ignore it and keep going, when our bodies really want us to go to sleep. As a result, when we finally do go to bed, the melatonin has stopped having any effect on our bodies.
Serotonin is what’s known as a neurotransmitter and it’s responsible for making you feel good. It gives you a feeling of happiness and improves your memory, self-confidence, sleep and appetite, helps you have an orgasm and regulates your emotions. Serotonin also plays an important part in how we deal with pain stimuli. When you don’t respond to the signal telling you to go to sleep, this disrupts the production of serotonin, causing you to have problems like sleeping badly, feeling negative and binge eating. Both melatonin and serotonin are produced by the body itself. Their production can get disrupted by stress, lack of sleep and ignoring the signals that you need to sleep.
If you’re having difficulty getting to sleep and this is affecting your mood, then you can support your body’s natural processes by using Dr. Becky 5HTP. Dr. Becky 5HTP contains the substance 5-hydroxytryptophan, which helps the brain to produce melatonin and serotonin.
