Serotone 5-HTP

Higher Nature Serotone 5-HTP (100mg) provides the natural amino acid, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) which helps support the production of feel-good neurotransmitters and plays a role in a range of body functions from mental wellbeing to helping optimal rest and relaxation.  

 Higher Nature’s 5-HTP is found naturally in the Griffonia simplicifolia seed which is a woody climbing shrub native to West Africa and Central Africa. This formula also provides B vitamins and zinc, essential co-factors, which are needed to help 5-HTP to be used effectively in the body. Vitamins B3 and B6, biotin and folic acid contribute to normal psychological function whilst zinc supports cognitive function.


  • Supports mood and cognitive function.
  • Supports restful sleep.
  • Supports healthy digestion. 

5-HTP -
Higher Nature Serotone 5-HTP provides a natural source of 5-HTP from griffonia simplicifolia seed. This amino acid has been well studied for its mood-boosting effects, by working to increase serotonin, the happy hormones. Serotonin is also a precursor to melatonin, making 5-HTP a functional aid for better sleep. 5-HTP may also help support healthy digestion.

B3, B6 + Biotin - B Vitamins help support normal psychological function as well as optimise the metabolism of 5-HTP. For example, B3 (niacin) is involved in the process of converting tryptophan to serotonin.

Zinc - Zinc supports many biochemical processes and enzymatic pathways throughout the body. In this case, zinc is added to support mood, cognitive function and to optimise 5-HTP metabolism.

Mental health and wellbeing are just as important as physical health. Whist keeping on top of your mental wellness through practices such as mindfulness, speaking with friends and family and getting enough sleep are undoubtedly important, extra help in the form of supplementation can really help support you through those low days. As 5-HTP has multiple benefits, from aiding sleep and mood to digestion, Higher Nature Serotone 5-HTP provides truly excellent support.
