Support deep and restful sleep with Lab-Verified
In today's hectic day and age, it is important to experience at least seven to eight hours of deep and restful sleep every night in order to properly recover from the stresses of day-to-day living. Fortunately, supporting optimal melatonin and serotonin levels in the body can go a long way in supporting healthy sleeping patterns. An excellent way to do this is to supplement with lab-verified 5-HTP powder. In order to help you experience deep and restful sleep, the Health Ranger Store has endeavored to bring you a clean, lab-verified batch of Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder.
Carefully extracted from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, our premium Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder delivers pure 5-HTP to help you maintain healthy melatonin and serotonin levels that are already within the normal range. These two substances can naturally support a healthy sleep cycle and elevate your mood, respectively. Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder contains no gluten or GMOs and is thoroughly lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. It is also vegan, BSE/TSE-free, certified Kosher and is not treated with ETO or radiation.
What is 5-HTP?**
Also known as oxitriptan, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring, plant-derived amino acid that is best known for its ability to naturally elevate your mood and support normal sleep patterns. This is because your body converts 5-HTP into important hormones, such as serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is used by nerve cells to communicate. It is also considered a natural mood stabilizer. Serotonin can be converted into the hormone melatonin, which is responsible for regulating your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin also works as an antioxidant and is involved in supporting healthy immune function and maintaining healthy cortisol and blood pressure levels already within normal range.
Your body naturally produces 5-HTP when you consume foods that are high in the amino acid L-tryptophan, such as eggs, seaweed, sesame seeds and game meat. However, since eating foods high in L-tryptophan does not have significantly effective 5-HTP levels, supplementing with 5-HTP is a much more efficient way to get adequate levels of this amino acid. This, in turn helps you easily maintain optimal levels of serotonin and melatonin, which your body needs to function optimally. According to a study that appeared in the journal Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, 5-HTP provides antioxidant benefits that can help protect your body against oxidative damage and support your body’s overall health and well-being.
Health benefits of 5-HTP**
SUPPORTS A HEALTHY SLEEP CYCLE – Also known as the "sleep hormone," melatonin is considered a natural sleep aid. Having sufficient levels of this hormone supports deep and restful sleep, whereas having low melatonin levels is associated with poor sleep quality. Supplementing with 5-HTP can help you maintain healthy melatonin levels within the normal range, which can, in turn, support healthy sleep patterns.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY COGNITIVE FUNCTION – According to a study that appeared in the journal European Neurology, supplementing with 5-HTP can support healthy cognitive function. Your body naturally converts 5-HTP into serotonin, which performs vital functions in your brain. By helping you maintain optimal serotonin levels, 5-HTP can support healthy brain functions, such as learning new information.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY DIGESTIVE FUNCTION – While serotonin is usually associated with the brain, your gut actually produces up to 95% of the serotonin in your body, indicating this hormone's importance in healthy digestive function. Serotonin also plays an important role in the communication between your gut and your brain.
UPLIFTS YOUR MOOD – Serotonin is your body’s natural "feel-good hormone." If you have low levels of this hormone, you may be more prone to experiencing depressed and anxious feelings. Fortunately, 5-HTP is a natural precursor to serotonin. This means that supplementing with 5-HTP can naturally elevate your mood and help reduce depressed and anxious feelings.
SUPPORTS REASONABLE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PLANS – According to a study published in the Journal of Neural Transmission, 5-HTP can support feelings of fullness and help curb your appetite. This means that 5-HTP can be a useful tool in achieving your sensible weight management goals when paired with a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
Griffonia simplicifolia plant seeds are a rich source of 5-HTP**
Most whole food sources do not contain 5-HTP, which is why it is nearly impossible to acquire 5-HTP from your diet. However, high levels of 5-HTP can naturally be found in the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, a small, green shrub that is native to the mountain areas of Central and Western Africa. This plant has a long history of use in Traditional African Medicine due to its potent health-supporting properties.
The Health Ranger Store has taken great lengths to source our pure 5-HTP from high-quality Griffonia simplicifolia plants grown by trusted suppliers. We carefully extract our premium 5-HTP powder to ensure maximum potency. After extraction and concentration, the product undergoes an initial crystallization process before being dissolved and filtered. After a secondary crystallization process, the dry extract is carefully ground into a fine powder and sifted through until it is properly mixed and packaged.
What are the best ways to take 5-HTP powder?**
Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder can easily be added to your favorite shakes, smoothies, herbals teas, juices and other beverages. Here are a few suggestions for maximizing your intake of 5-HTP powder:
For a good night’s rest, simply take 200 mg of 5-HTP powder 30-45 minutes before going to bed. For best results, try taking it with a high-quality Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) supplement or valerian root (you can make a cup of hot tea with it). You can also take it with warm milk and honey.
To naturally elevate your mood, take 50-100 mg of 5-HTP powder three times a day with your meals. You can also try pairing it with either a vitamin B6 or L-tyrosine supplement to support a positive mood.
If you want to support sensible weight management goals, take 250 mg of 5-HTP powder 30 minutes before a meal and combine with proper exercise and diet. It is best consumed with green tea or beverages that contain high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
Consult your naturopathic physician or healthcare provider to optimize your 5-HTP intake.
