Want to support your body's serotonin production naturally but are worried about the effectiveness of modern supplements? Look no further than these enterically coated 5-HTP tablets. Designed to survive the harsh acidic environment of your digestive system, there's never been a more reliable way to boost your mood and energy levels.
Also known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan, 5-HTP is a completely natural amino acid. Ordinarily sourced from the protein building block L-Tryptophan, we use it to create and nurture the neurotransmitter serotonin. Neurotransmitters are chemical messenger that work inside the brain and nervous system. They control our mood, our energy levels, almost every aspect of how our brain works and when they don't fire, it can result in depression and loss of motivation.
You've probably heard of Serotonin because it is often coined as that most marketable of notions - 'the happy' chemical. When we're full of serotonin, we are happy, pleased, euphoric even. When our supplies are low, the opposite will happen.
Of course, the problem with 5-HTP, much as it is with many dietary supplements, is that it can be difficult to absorb properly when taken orally. That's why Swanson Utra have created these new enteric-coated tablets. So that harsh stomach acids don't reduce the efficacy of this naturally-derived form of tryptophan.
Not only are they more effective but enteric delivery also reduces the possibility of experiencing any stomach upset after ingestion. Sourced from the famous West African plant, Griffonia Simplicifolia; Swanson Ultra Enteric Coated 5-HTP is little more than the potent extraction of a a woody, tree climbing shrub.
It may sound like a lot of chemical mumbo-jumbo but the truth is that scientists are increasingly finding links between introducing Swanson Ultra Enteric Coated 5-HTP into your diet and an ability to fight issues like weight gain through lethargy, trouble sleeping and mild depression.
And while 5-HTP is naturally occurring in foods like chicken, turkey and brown rice, it only does so in miniscule amounts. By adding Swanson Ultra Enteric Coated 5-HTP to your diet, you can better supplement your body's supply of L-Tryptophan type building blocks.
It's easy to take our mood for granted, or worse yet, to blame it on ourselves. The idea that depression is 'our fault' is dangerously common, especially when you consider just how much your mood can affect your lifestyle.
Your mood is connected to everything. When it is low it can cause you to struggle with everyday tasks. This can have a knock on effect on your desire to get out and to exercise properly, potentially leaving you overweight, unhappy and even incapable of supporting yourself properly.
Swanson Ultra Enteric Coated 5-HTP can help you combat those problems before they become issues. Just add a little to your diet everyday to really see the difference.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day with water on an empty stomach.
