  • Supports Positive Mood*

From Natural Source

Vegan & Vegetarian

Available In Veg Capsules

Griffonia simplicifolia is an African plant which is extracted to produce 5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a metabolite (a substance produced by metabolism) of the amino acid tryptophan. You may know tryptophan as the substance in turkey that makes you feel like taking a nap after Thanksgiving dinner. 5-HTP is a direct precursor of the important inhibitory neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin may support feelings of contentment.* It is also the precursor to the antioxidant and sleep supporter called melatonin.*

This helps me sleep throughout the night and I think it helps my overall well being. 100 mg capsules, take 1 at bedtime with tryptophan.

This product works better for me than a Z-Quil! Gives you a nice calm sleep, no dreaming which I hate, and no side effects the next morning unlike melatonin (which seems to negatively alter my mood especially day after).


I have trouble falling asleep so I take this with ZMA about 60 minutes before bed and it helps me not only fall asleep but stay asleep for about 8 hours. Definitely feel a huge difference in how I feel in the morning getting a good nights rest every night! Highly recommend for those who need help falling asleep.
