Product overview 

5-HTP is a compound made from a naturally occurring amino acid, tryptophan. Supplementing it is the only way to quickly and easily get 5-HTP into your diet. Our capsules are also vegan-friendly, too.

What is 5-HTP?

Our bodies use 5-HTP to make the neurotransmitter, serotonin which is a chemical that carries messages between nerve cells in the brain and throughout the body. 

However, 5-HTP isn't present in any food groups, although tryptophan can be found in foods  we can't always get the correct amount of 5-HTP from our diet alone. That's where Naturecan’s 5-HTP supplement comes in. 5-HTP is also made from the seeds of an African plant called Griffonia simplicifolia.

Who should take 5-HTP supplements?

The potential benefits of 5-HTP can affect each person differently, especially if you are regularly incorporating it into your daily routine. 

Recommended 5-HTP usage 

Take one 5-HTP capsule daily, at whatever time of day suits you best.
