5-HTP has a popular following in the UK traditionally used for mood balance and mental well-being.            

5-HTP is derived from the essentail  amino acid L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan is found in several food types. After absorbing L-tryptophan from food, it is then converted to 5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan), and then to serotonin.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter. Serotonin plays a key role in supporting mood balance, sleep and concentration. Serotonin is often called the “happy molecule” for the role it plays in a positive mood feeling.

Low levels of serotonin have been connected to feeling down, anxiety, insomnia, stress, lack of focus, nervousness, cravings for high-fat or high sugar foods which results in weight gain and low self esteem.  

Our new 5-HTP Complex Plus is not just a standard 5-HTP supplement but has a unique addition of  vitamins, minerals, amino acids and black pepper. The vitamins, minerals and amino acids chosen for the complex are all associated with supporting the normal function of mood and mental well-being.  



Silvertown Health 5HTP Complex Plus provides :


5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan)
Provides 100mg of 5-HTP per capsule unlike some other brands that only provide 50mg. Our 5-HTP is sourced from the natural griffonia seed. Derived from the griffonia simplicifolia plant griffonia seed is high in natural 5-HTP and so is ideal as a safe food based natural 5-HTP.  The griffonia seed extract when taken is processed within the liver where the active ingredient 5-HTP enter's the blood stream and travels to the brain to be converted into serotonin.  

Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 helps the production of neurotransmitters in the brain. Vitamin B6 supports mental sharpness and mood. Research shows that vitamins B6 is a key vitamin for mood balance.  Vitamin B6 also supports serotonin production.   

Folic Acid
Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin and is also known as vitamin B9. Its plays various roles within the body including mood balance activities and functioning of the nervous system.  Growing reasearch has also concluded a possible link between depression and low levels of folic acid.

        
Vitamin C     
Better known for its immunity aspect but vitamin c also supports serotonin production and various studies have now shown that vitamin c helps support the normal psychological and neurological functions.


Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol)    
Vitamin D receptors are present in the brain and they activate the release of the neurotransmitters    serotonin. Growing evidance is showing a link between vitamin D deficiency and an imbalance in mood function. Studies have also found depressed patients commonly had lower levels of vitamin D.  Low vitamin D levels are also associated with the mood disorder SAD -  seasonal affective disorder.

Zinc
Zinc is the key essentail mineral for mood balance. Clinical studies with humans have found that zinc levels tend to be low in depressed patients.  There is also a link between zinc and serotonin uptake in the brain. Neuroscientists also state that zinc is important for mood due to zinc-containing neurons that regulate the brain and body’s response to stress.


L-Theanine
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is not common in the diet but is found in good levels in green tea. L-Theanine promotes relaxation without the drowsiness and is said to increase alpha waves in the brain, creating a feeling of relaxation, while maintaining mental alertness.

L-Phenylalanine
L-phenylalanine is an essenatil amino acid and is found in foods including meat, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk. L-phenylalanine is used to make the amino acid L-tyrosine an important neurotransmitters in the brain. It also supports the normal functioning of the central nervous system. The body needs phenylalanine to make important neurotransmitters that basically control mood balance.
