Solgar 5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) Complex is formulated to help balance sleep patterns and mood stability. L-5-Hydroxytryptophan is the precursor to serotonin which is known as the "feel good hormone". Serotonin is converted to melatonin, which is the hormone that helps us sleep. Low levels of serotonin is therefore one of the main causes of depression and sleeplessness.
