Lamberts 5-HTP 100mg

Natural extract from Griffonia Seeds

  • 5-HTP, short for 5-hydroxytryptophan, is a derivative of tryptophan, an amino acid that is present in high protein foods such as meat and dairy products
  • Each tablet provides a full 100mg of 5-HTP
  • A natural source, extracted from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia
  • The daily intake recommendations for this product reflect the levels of 5-HTP used in most of the clinical studies
  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan is the immediate precursor of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter regulating numerous important bodily functions, in particular brain and nerve function.
  • Approximately 70% of oral 5-HTP is converted to serotonin, compared with around 3% of L-tryptophan.

  • Serotonin may be converted in the body to melatonin, important in regulating the sleep-wake cycle.

  • 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-hydroxy-l-tryptophan) is a natural supplement that converts in the brain into serotonin.  

  • Serotonin is an important brain chemical involved in mood, behaviour, appetite, and sleep.  

  • Serotonin is known as 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptamine, and is found in many places in the body particularly the brain, gastrointestinal system, and blood cells.   

Benefits

This information gleaned from Ray Sahelian, M.D.
"Some people who take 5-HTP notice improved mood, decrease in appetite, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. I have come across some individuals who get wired instead of sleepy when taking 5-HTP.  

 

Some find that 5-HTP helps curb appetite and leads to weight loss. This nutrient could be used temporarily for appetite suppression while other lifestyle and dietary changes are being incorporated regarding a life long plan for keeping weight off. Not everyone notices the appetite suppressing effect from 5-HTP.

5-HTP may be temporarily helpful in conditions that normally require prescription antidepressants, anti-anxiety agents, sleeping pills, and weight loss drugs.  

 

5-HTP may also be helpful in some individuals with migraine headaches and fibromyalgia.

5-HTP reduces the severity of a panic attack which may indicate that panic attacks may be due to low serotonin levels.

A study in rodents indicates that 5-HTP may be useful in controlling the excessive food intake sometimes generated by stress, even if given without decarboxylase inhibitors or other drugs."

The ultimate healthcare supplement range

Quality comes from paying attention to detail

Lamberts believe that every single raw ingredient in a Lamberts product is as important as the finished product itself. So they are meticulous in the tests they carry out and ensure that every product that is manufactured is subjected to a series of rigorous tests to ensure they meet the specifications given on the label.

Firstly, the raw materials are tested for quality, purity and potency, then samples of products are taken and tested even while the product is still being made and then a final check is carried out on the finished product.

This commitment has enabled them to produce products of a quality that others can only aspire to and are much appreciated by health professionals, who appreciate the detail they pay to recommended amounts and the sources of vitamins they use in formulation.

The supplements are much valued for the immune system and strong bones. Their product such as folic acid, Vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and other essential nutrients are highly recommended as part of a healthy diet.

Dosage of Lamberts Healthcare Supplements

Premium quality healthcare supplements need to provide the correct potency since dosage is the key to success when using nutrition and herbs in clinical practice. You can have selected the right nutrients but get the levels wrong and you won’t get the results you hoped.

And whilst you’d be right in thinking that getting the dosage right is a fundamental requirement in practice, it is surprisingly difficult to achieve this by using many of the supplements on the market. This is why we pay such careful attention to our selection of brands.

At Lamberts they start with dosage. Lamberts philosophy of healthcare is all about ‘sound’ science - they only develop products that are at the right potency and supported by a valid scientific rationale. Indeed it is the potency of their products that truly sets them apart from most other brands and enables you to be able to put your trust in Lamberts products.

Informative and accurate supplement labels

Great products need to be perfectly labeled and Lamberts has pioneered the accurate labeling of dietary healthcare supplements.

Lamberts takes considerable care to use the correct terms for all the ingredients in their products and they do not hesitate to declare everything that is used. What they say on the label is an honest representation of what is in the product.

To be sure that their tablets or capsules contain the active ingredients specified, they know that certain inactive ingredients need to be used. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to produce food supplements without using some inactive ingredients, and products whose labels do not show any are in our opinion either inaccurately made or inaccurately labeled.
