5-HTP Powder 0.7 oz (20 g)
Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder 0.7 oz (20 g)
Also known as oxitriptan, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring, plant-derived amino acid that is best known for its ability to naturally elevate your mood and support normal sleep patterns. This is because your body converts 5-HTP into important hormones, such as serotonin and melatonin.

In order to help you experience deep and restful sleep, the Health Ranger Store has endeavored to bring you a clean, new lot of Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder. Carefully extracted from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, our premium Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder delivers pure 5-HTP to help you maintain healthy melatonin and serotonin levels that are already within the normal range. These two substances can naturally support a healthy sleep cycle and elevate your mood, respectively.

Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder contains no gluten or GMOs and is thoroughly lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. It is also vegan, BSE/TSE-free, certified Kosher and is not treated with ETO or radiation.

Health benefits of 5-HTP**

Supports a healthy sleep cycle – Also known as the "sleep hormone", melatonin is considered a natural sleep aid. Having sufficient levels of this hormone supports deep and restful sleep, whereas having low melatonin levels is associated with poor sleep quality. Supplementing with 5-HTP can help you maintain healthy melatonin levels within the normal range, which can in turn support healthy sleep patterns.

Supports healthy cognitive function – According to a study that appeared in the journal European Neurology, supplementing with 5-HTP can support healthy cognitive function. Your body naturally converts 5-HTP into serotonin, which performs vital functions in your brain. By helping you maintain optimal serotonin levels, 5-HTP supports healthy brain functions, such as learning new information.

Supports healthy digestive function
 – While serotonin is usually associated with the brain, your gut actually produces up to 95% of the serotonin in your body, indicating this hormone's importance in healthy digestive function. Serotonin also plays an important role in the communication between your gut and your brain.

Uplifts your mood – Serotonin is your body’s natural "feel-good hormone." If you have low levels of this hormone, you may be more prone to experiencing depressed and anxious feelings. Fortunately, 5-HTP is a natural precursor to serotonin. This means that supplementing with 5-HTP can naturally elevate your mood and help reduce depressed and anxious feelings.

Supports reasonable weight management plans – According to a study published in the Journal of Neural Transmission, 5-HTP can support feelings of fullness and help curb your appetite. This means that 5-HTP can be a useful tool in achieving your sensible weight management goals when paired with a well-balanced diet and regular exercise. 

What are the best ways to take 5-HTP powder?**

Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder can easily be added to your favorite shakes, smoothies, herbals teas, juices and other beverages. Here are a few suggestions for maximizing your intake of 5-HTP powder:

For a good night’s rest, simply take 200 mg of 5-HTP powder 30-45 minutes before going to bed. For best results, try taking it with a high-quality Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) supplement or valerian root (you can make a cup of hot tea with it). You can also take it with warm milk and honey. 

To naturally elevate your mood, take 50-100 mg of 5-HTP powder three times a day with your meals. You can also try pairing it with either a vitamin B6 or L-tyrosine supplement to support a positive mood.

If you want to support your sensible weight management goal, take 250 mg of 5-HTP powder 30 minutes before a meal and combine with proper diet and exercise. It is best consumed with green tea or beverages that contain high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).    

NOTE: Consult your naturopathic physician or healthcare provider to optimize your 5-HTP intake.

deeper sleep

Feels like I am getting a more restful sleep!

Thank you so much for this review. We really appreciate you being a customer

Great 5-HTP Powder

I have resumed taking the 5-HTP supplement to support a full night's sleep. Thus far I have not noticed a huge difference in sleep patterns, but based on other reviews, I do plan to try taking it closer to bedtime. All of Health Ranger's products are highly recommended A+, some more helpful than others due to individual needs.

Thank you for taking the time to write a feedback

Good product

I needed an alternative to sleep aids that weren't working. I particularly like that it seems more natural.

We’re really grateful and appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback

I sleep better

I love 5-HTP powder! I really helps me sleep. I mix it in passion flower tea which I take before bed. I also like the fact that it is pure without any other ingredients and has been tested for safety.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience
