5-HTP 100mg capsules help to support your sleep naturally
Restful sleep is important for the regeneration of body and mind. Sleep problems can have negative effects on our health and many aspects of our daily lives. The results of a sleep deficit can include moodiness, reduced activity levels, lack of concentration, and long-term health problems.
5-HTP can help to induce natural sleep.
Sleep deprivation: An epidemic
Sleep problems have become an epidemic. In surveys, one in two women and one in four men report suffering from a sleep-related problem. The number one cause is said to be career stress, closely followed by family problems or health issues.
Sleep problems are rarely of one single type: People have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep throughout the night, experience long periods of insomnia, or simply get too little time to sleep. Only those who get a full nights’ sleep can hope to function at their personal best during the day.
To feel sufficiently rested, we not only need to sleep for long enough, we must also get high-quality sleep. Those who suffer from sleep problems and want to improve their situation without taking medication can find a 100% natural method right here.
Lack of sleep can make you ill
Those who regularly get too little sleep may be taking a risk, because chronic sleep deprivation can take a toll on your health. Scientists have found that, while the symptoms may include stress and bad moods, continuous lack of sleep can increase the risk of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.
To regenerate the body and mind, most healthy people need seven to nine hours’ sleep in every 24-hour period. People who work changing shift patterns may experience a high sleep deficit after just a few weeks, and this can lead to a reduced attention span and an inability to concentrate.
5-HTP can help you sleep better and more naturally
Research suggests sleep is the result of biochemical processes. Our brain produces serotonin and melatonin, chemicals which can help us fall asleep and stay asleep.
It’s only when both chemicals are present in optimal quantities that our bodies relax, and we begin to feel tired and ready for restful sleep. As we grow older, the body produces less serotonin and melatonin, which can lead to a reduction in our average sleep duration and may precipitate the development of sleep problems.
Working shifts and long distance travel (jet lag) can also disrupt the production of these crucial chemicals. 5-HTP is considered a significant element in the production of both melatonin and serotonin, and scientific studies suggest taking 5-HTP can increase your production of both these chemicals which support healthy, natural sleep.

What other uses does 5-HTP have?
Using 5-HTP to boost serotonin levels is not only a positive for better sleep. It may also supports improvements for the following conditions:
- Depression and feelings of anxiety
- Feelings of tension and unrest
- Migraine and chronic headaches
- Chronic muscle pain
- Feeling of aggression
Why is 5-HTP considered better for restful sleep than melatonin and L-tryptophan?
Scientific work suggests that L-tryptophan often has to be taken in substantially higher doses than 5-HTP to achieve the same result. Furthermore, older people and those suffering from extreme stress are usually unable to transform L-tryptophan into 5-HTP in optimal amounts.
Because melatonin works very well for some people, it is often recommended as a natural sleep aid. But because 5-HTP also helps produce serotonin, it thus has a broader range of benefits than melatonin alone.
5-HTP helps to relax the body and mind, and in many cases it can also help to eliminate some causes of sleeplessness such as unrest, depression and anxiety.
Who should not take 5-HTP?
Those who take anti-depressive or psychoactive drugs should only take 5-HTP after consulting their doctor. Once any psycho-pharmaceutical treatment has been completed, 5-HTP can be taken (with your doctor´s approval) as a natural way to improve your mood which is free from side effects.
Co-factors can help increase the effect of 5-HTP
The body needs some co-factors to support the optimal transformation of 5-HTP into serotonin and melatonin. This is why 5-HTP 100mg contains vitamin B 6, vitamin C, pantothenic acid, zinc, and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals help 5-HTP to combat depression and migraine, and operate more effectively as an appetite suppressant than other products which contain 5-HTP alone.
Does 5-HTP have any side effects?
5-HTP is naturally found in plants and fruits. This product extracts 5-HTP from the seeds of the African healing herb griffonia simplicifolia, the richest natural source of 5-HTP. Vitality Nutritionals 5-HTP contains a high potency griffonia simplicifolia extract with a 5-HTP content of 99%.
5-HTP is a substance, which naturally occurs in the body. It is considered practically free of side effects when taken in the usual recommended dosage of 50 to 400 mg. In extremely rare instances, some people may experience soft bowel movements, flatulence, or tiredness.
If the 5-HTP dosage is increased too quickly, the rapid increase of serotonin can lead to temporary feelings of unrest and hyperactivity. These side effects can be prevented by a slow incremental increase of the dosage.
5-HTP can be taken daily over a prolonged period of time without developing any dependency or resistance. Your intake of 5-HTP can be interrupted or stopped completely at any time without experiencing the withdrawal symptoms which commonly accompany many sleep medications.
