Isolate of Griffonia simplicifolia, standardized to a 99% 5-htp content
Recommended amount per dose is 50-100 mg, not exceeding 500 mg per day. Absorption of 5-htp is greatly enhanced on an empty stomach when consumed with green tea, carob, or cacao.
5-htp functions as an extremely effective mood enhancer, stress reducing agent, and provides a potent calming and sedative action. 5-htp may help an imbalanced body find stability in regards to mood & emotion.
5-htp may cause mild nausea for new users when taken in larger amounts. It is recommended to only use 50 mg when first starting 5-htp. Do not exceed more than 500 mg in one day. Consumption of large doses, or with food can cause gastric upset, diarrhea, & nausea
Do not take if you also take SSRI, MAOI, or TCA type medicines.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
