Contains a blend of ingredients important for mood and sleep-wake function*
5-HTP (from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract): 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) crosses the blood-brain barrier and is a precursor to serotonin and melatonin (1).* Serotonin is important for regulating mood and sleep-wake function (2). In a randomized, double-blind study, 5-HTP was shown to significantly improve mood (3).*
Vitamins B and C: Active forms of vitamin B6, folate, and C are important for serotonin synthesis (4-8).*
