A dietary supplement is an immediate precursor to serotonin.
How it works
5-HTP increases the levels of serotonin inside the brain. Serotonin functions to regulate factors such as appetite, sleep and mood. This means that it can make you sad or happy and eat more or less. When it comes to sleep, it guarantees that people have good sleep.
