Sanjevani 5-HTP SR has a delivery system that is a Sustain Release (SR) of 5-HTP slowly and steadily to maintain even levels over a period of time. 5-HTP is a drug-free amino acid derived from a plant that naturally increases the body's level of serotonin, the chemical messenger that affects emotions, behavior, appetite, and sleep. Today's stress-filled lifestyles and dietary practices may negatively affect how the body handles serotonin.
Sanjevani 5-HTP SR helps promote a more positive outlook and greater appetite control.*
- Supports Healthy Biosynthesis of Serotonin
- Supports Healthy Mood and Positive Outlook
- Supports Normal Appetite
- Supports Restful Sleep Pattern
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor to serotonin. In the body, the essential amino acid tryptophan (when acted upon by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase) converts to 5-HTP. The compound is subsequently decarboxylated to serotonin, thereby elevating extracellular serum serotonin levels. Supplementing with 5-HTP bypasses the somewhat limiting conversion of tryptophan to 5-HTP. Oral 5-HTP is well-absorbed in the intestine without the need for a transporter; other amino acids do not compete with it for absorption. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, is not degraded by the enzymes that degrade tryptophan.
Mood and Comfort Serotonin regulates many normal brain activities, increases norepinephrine and dopamine, and is important in regulating mood and behavior. Adequate levels of serotonin are associated with normal calmness and relaxation. Several studies have demonstrated that 5-HTP supports a healthy frame of mind, good energy levels, ease of movement, and restful sleep. Published studies (dose~100-600 mg/day) have also demonstrated the effectiveness of 5-HTP supplementation in supporting cerebral comfort.
Sanjevani 5-HTP SR it may be able to provide improved benefits with lower doses due to its sustained release action.
Appetite Used in a high dose (i.e., 300 mg/three times a day), 5-HTP decreased food consumption and reduced weight. This result may relate to the effect of 5-HTP in supporting normal hypothalamic regulation, which includes appetite homeostasis. Sanjevani 5-HTP SR may provide similar results with only 100 mg twice daily sustained release.*
Hormones and Sleep 5-HTP is thought to effect the HPA axis, as it has the ability to raise plasma cortisol levels, to cause transient increase in growth hormone (at 150 mg dose), and in men only, to support healthy levels of thyroid stimulating hormone. Serotonin is also converted to melatonin; thus, supplementation has similar effects. Support of sleep quality is likely related to 5-HTP's ability to increase the length of rapid eye movement (REM).
