Who Needs 5-HTP Capsules?

5-HTP or 5-hydroxytryptophan is a product of tryptophan that yields 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) or serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, memory, sleep, reward, learning, and many other physiological functions. Serotonin further produces melatonin that controls the sleep week cycle or circadian rhythm. Therefore, 5-HTP or 5-hydroxytryptophan is a key molecule responsible for the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin. It is involved in metabolic and neurological pathways in the human body.[1] If caught in a persistent low mood, 5-HTP supplements may help you tackle this problem.

Wellabs 5-HTP Capsules are third-party tested capsules meticulously calibrated for 18+ adults trapped in low mood and productivity depths. A single serving size of 2 tablets provides 5-HTP or 5-hydroxytryptophan (300mg) and L-tryptophan (100mg).

Why Does 5-HTP Capsules Work?

5-HTP capsules are packed with 5-hydroxytryptophan and L-tryptophan, which may help enhance mood and productivity and improve brain health and sleep quality.

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a metabolite of L-tryptophan that is involved in the production of serotonin. It is directly converted to serotonin without any feedback mechanism. L-tryptophan is hydroxylated to form 5-hydroxytryptophan, which includes 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) or serotonin as a product of the decarboxylation reaction. Serotonin is critical for mood regulation, cognitive functions, memory, hunger management, learning, and sleep.

Serotonin plays a critical role in mood regulation and inducing happiness. It increases nerve stimulation and generates more nerve impulses. It also is involved in the maintenance of bowel functions. Serotonin is released when stomach cells sense food ingestion. Serotonin is also stored in the platelets, which helps with blood clotting.[2]

L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis and physiological functions of the body. It is a precursor of niacin, serotonin, melatonin, vitamin B6, and tryptamine.[3]

L-tryptophan synthesizes tryptamine which undergoes a decarboxylation reaction to produce serotonin. Tryptamine controls the excitatory and inhibitory functions of serotonin. Moreover, it produces melatonin. Melatonin regulates the sleep-wake cycle, diurnal rhythms, reproductive health, and immune functions. In the darkness, melatonin positively affects behavior, mood, and sleep physiology.[4]

Wellabs 5-HTP capsules are a unique formulation of these ingredients that may help elevate mood, and productivity, reduce brain fog, support mental clarity and focus, and induce good sleep. These mood support supplements may help you take control of your emotions and embark on a transformative journey toward a brighter horizon.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan)

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan)

The 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) found in this supplement is the same amino acid that your body produces naturally. Why then, one may ask, would one need to supplement their levels of this important bio-compound? Apparently, it turns out that as much as our bodies are perfectly capable of synthesizing this amino acid without external aid, the capacity to do so is often easily impacted by a variety of mental or physical factors. And considering that 5-HTP is critically needed for the production of serotonin[3], this effectively predisposes you to anxiety, unexplained weight gain, chronic depression and a slew of other health disorders. Serotonin is, after all, the main chemical messenger between all your nerve cells. As such, its presence or absence has a huge bearing on your overall well being, both physically and emotionally.



Just like 5-htp, L-Tryptophan is an important amino acid that functions as the main building block for a number of vital neurotransmitters[4]. However, unlike 5-htp, the body is usually unable to synthesize it on its own which means that it is an 'essential' amino acid that has to be acquired via a dietary regimen or supplementation. The only problem is that there is not a huge selection of foods that are specifically rich in L-Tryptophan or its constituent elements. Supplementation is, therefore, your best bet taking into account that this an ingredient that is capable of improving the symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, sleep apnea, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, ADHD, and bruxism.
