Assimilation time: Less than 1 hour. Suitable for vegetarians.
Usage: 5-HTP, short for 5-hydroxytryptophan, is the hydroxylated form of the amino acid tryptophan, which is found in high protein foods such as meat and dairy products. The body produces 5-HTP from tryptophan and then in the brain it is converted into the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin plays a regulatory role in many bodily functions from appetite and mood to sleep. The 5-HTP provided by this product comes from a natural source namely the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia. The extract from this plant is now one of the most widely used supplements worldwide and especially in the USA. As with all herbs made by Lamberts, there is increased sensitivity in the selection of raw materials. The choice is always made based on the international guidelines regarding the purity of the raw materials. The recommended daily dose for 5-HTP reflects the levels of the active substance used in the clinical studies.
Dosage: Up to 3 tablets daily, half an hour before meals or half an hour before bed. Start with one tablet and increase if necessary. The product is best taken for periods of more than 3 months.
Precautions: Should not be taken by pregnant or lactating women. It is recommended that you avoid operating heavy machinery and driving until it is determined how 5-HTP works in the consumer. Consult your doctor if taking antidepressants.
