This unique formula is designed to help you switch off from a busy day and aid a restful sleep with just 1-2 capsules a day.
5-HTP is a chemical created from an essential amino acid, which is then converted into serotonin.
Erratic eating habits may also contribute to low levels of serotonin. Serotonin is converted to melatonin, which is used by the body to create our sleep-wake cycle. When levels are low we find it hard to relax and drift off to sleep.
The 100 mg of 5-HTP per capsule may support serotonin levels, which combined with Vitamin B6 contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Also included is Valerian, which has also been traditionally used to reduce symptoms of anxiety and promote quality of sleep.
