Like the name suggests, Super 5-HTP is more than just a 5-HTP supplement. It is a powerful combination of two world famous mood enhancers: 5-HTP and L-theanine.
5-HTP comes from the African griffonia shrub and is a natural precursor to serotonin, which is also known as the happy hormone.
L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid commonly found in green tea that has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier.
THE SCIENCE OF SEROTONIN
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter thought to be responsible for happiness and euphoria, which is why it is more commonly known as the happy hormone.
The production of serotonin is affected by things like age, lifestyle and genetics, meaning that some people suffer from an imbalance in their levels.
Due to its ability to increase serotonin production in the brain, 5-HTP prescribed as a medicine in many European countries for the treatment of depression.
