Quick Overview

Natures Aid 5-HTP Complex with key supportive nutrients including Avena Sativa, Magnesium, Vitamins B3, B5 & B6

Product Description


Over the past 40 years or so a number of clinical trials have indicated that 5-HTP may be useful for a broad range of health problems. Ironically, however, 5-HTP does not perform any specific function within the body. 5-HTP actually acts within the body as a raw material, used by some cells within the body to make the important neurotransmitter Serotonin. Therefore, when looking at the benefits of 5-HTP we are in essence looking at the benefits of Serotonin. 5-HTP is commercially produced from the seeds of a West African medicinal plant called Griffonia simplicifolia.

The Benefits of Natures Aid 5-HTP Complex:

Depression - the vast majority of studies on 5-HTP have focused on its use as a natural antidepressant with encouraging results.

Insomnia - Serotonin levels are very important in controlling our normal sleeping pattern and the use of 5-HTP has shown considerable benefits in cases of sleeping disturbances and insomnia.

Anxiety - an emotional state that is related to Serotonin disturbances. Improvements in the symptoms of anxiety, particularly panic attacks, have been noted when 5-HTP is used.

Fibromyalgia - people with fibromyalgia often show low levels of Serotonin in their blood.

Appetite control and weight reduction - overeating and low brain Serotonin levels are linked and studies have shown a reduction in food intake when 5-HTP is used and consequently a reduction in body weight.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) - research carried out in the 1980s strongly links Serotonin levels with PMS.

Properties of Natures Aid 5HTP:

The properties of 5-HTP are centred around the fact that it is a direct precursor of serotonin. Serotonin is one of around twelve neurotransmitters and is also used by some cells outside the brain. The vast majority of the body's Serotonin-using neurons are found within the intestinal tract, where Serotonin is used to help regulate peristalsis (waves of contraction that moves food along the digestive tract) and digestion.

Each Natures Aid 5-HTP tablet contains:

5-HTP 100mg
Avena sativa (Wild Oats)
Green Herb extract
equivalent to dried root 100mg
Niacin (B3) 10mg
Vitamin B6 10mg
Pantothenic Acid (B5) 6mg
Magnesium 50mg


5-HTP should not be taken with anti-depressants, migraine medication, Parkinson's Disease drugs, weight control drugs, other serotonin-modifying agents or substances known to cause liver damage.
Should not be used during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding. Can cause drowsiness; do not drive or operate machinery if affected.
