What is 5-HTP?

5-Hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP is an amino acid produced naturally in the body.

Your body uses it to produce serotonin, a chemical messenger that sends signals between your nerve cells.

Undoubtedly, low serotonin levels can lead to depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain and other health problems.

Therefore, increasing your body’s production of serotonin may have various benefits. Due to this, 5-HTP supplements have become increasingly popular in the past few years.

The history

In 1947, two pharmacists and a holistic physician, acted upon a shared belief that it is better to prevent diseases with vitamins and minerals than to treat them with pharmaceuticals. They were Nat Colby, Mike Goldfarb and Carl Zoll.

Since then, Solgar has had one mission: To provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products sold by educated retailers to help promote optimal health.
Subsequently, their attention to detail at every stage from manufacturing to distribution has enabled Solgar® to set, maintain and raise the ‘Gold Standard’ for quality and attention to detail in a constantly evolving and competitive industry.
