5-HTP Extended Release by Seeking Health provides natural L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia plant. 5-HTP is not found in significant amounts in a typical diet. The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in our diets. However, eating food that contains L-tryptophan does not significantly increase 5-HTP levels, because L-tryptophan may be diverted to other functions, such as niacin production. 5-HTP is a precursor to brain neurotransmitters which are important for emotional well-being. Neurotransmitter levels in the brain are highly dependent on the availability of 5-HTP within the central nervous system. 5-HTP can cross the blood-brain barrier without the requirement of a transport carrier.*
