5-HTP, found in Metabolic Maintenance's 50mg 60 caps supplement, contributes to regulating sleep and balancing mood. This compound is a precursor to serotonin, which can then be converted to melatonin (the hormone responsible for inducing and maintaining sleep). However, rather than relying on light cues, 5-HTP directly increases the release of both serotonin and melatonin, regardless of time of day.

Serotonin also has a soothing effect on brain chemistry and plays a crucial role in various bodily processes, such as digestion, appetite, and pain perception. 

Derived from the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, Metabolic Maintenance's 5-HTP is combined with activated vitamin B-6, specifically P-5-P, which aids in serotonin metabolism. Consult with a physician before combining with SSRIs.
