Juventus® 5-HTP is a food supplement in capsules that contains 5-HTP. 5-HTP or 5-Hydroxytryptophan is a compound produced in our body from the amino acid tryptophan, being involved in the biosynthesis of serotonin (neurotransmitter).


5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is obtained from Griffonia simplicifolia and has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, being subsequently converted into serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). Its oral intake leads to increased serotonin production in the central nervous system, with this neurotransmitter involved in various physiological and behavioral processes, such as the regulation of mood, appetite and circadian rhythms. Serotonin in the hypothalamus is involved in regulating food intake. Some studies have revealed that taking 5-HTP may be associated with a reduction in appetite, a reduction in daily calorie intake, leading to a consequent loss of body weight. 5-HTP has demonstrated antidepressant function in individuals with varying degrees of depression. Serotonin is a precursor to melatonin, the hormone responsible for reducing the time needed to fall asleep.
