12/21/15 - With the holiday season at its peak, consumers are encountering more stressors than usual. Family gatherings, holiday parties and an increase in financial spend are key triggers that can cause mood levels to become unbalanced during this time of year—and consumers may be looking for a drug-free alternative to help combat stress and brighten their mood.
Natrol® 5-HTP Fast Dissolve is a drug-free, plant-derived mood enhancement supplement that promotes calmness throughout the body by increasing serotonin levels.† Serotonin is the chemical messenger that affects emotions, mood and behavior.
Stress and anxiety are two primary serotonin disruptors. They can interrupt the body’s normal production of serotonin which can result in a negative mood change. To combat this, the body converts a naturally occurring amino acid called 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) into serotonin to help balance mood levels, but on some days the body might need extra support from a supplement. Natrol 5-HTP works within the brain and the central nervous system to help balance serotonin levels that affect mood.†
“Natrol 5-HTP is designed to help consumers live a more balanced lifestyle when life gets hectic. 5-HTP is a great tool to help calm stress and anxiety during the holidays,” said David Hilton, R&D Director at Natrol, LLC.†
Natrol’s supplement is extracted from the seeds of the African Griffonia Simplicifolia, a natural source of the amino acid, 5-hydroxytryptophan. Natrol 5-HTP Fast Dissolve has been clinically tested and found to be 30x more effective than regular 5-HTP tablets for bioavailability, allowing the body to absorb a higher proportion of the active ingredient.† The supplement is available in drugstores, grocery stores and online retailers.
