PureNature 5-HTP with Calcium
PureNature 5-HTP is a seed extract from an african plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia. It’s a legume that grows into a woody shrub in the tropical rain forest of West and Central Africa [2,3].
Griffonia simplicifolia has been used in traditional medicine, and its chemical composition has been extensively studied since the 1960s . The seeds contain high concentrations 5-HTP (5-hydroxy-l-tryptophan), a direct serotonin precursor [2,3].
Food supplements containing 5-HTP are used to help with serotonin-related disorders. Serotonin imbalances can affect sleep, mood, stress levels, appetite, physiological and cognitive functions [1,2,3].
To promote a good quality sleep, PureNature 5-HTP is formulated with calcium. A study shows that low calcium intake is a predictor of poor quality of sleep; and a lack of sleep is linked with anxiety, depression, and body pains .
Another study links tryptophan and calcium rich dairy products with better sleep quality. The brain utilizes tryptophan to manufacture melatonin, a natural hormone that promotes good sleep . Tryptophan is the essential amino acid found in food that the body metabolizes to manufacture 5-HTP .
