  1. 5-HTP 50 mg - 90 vcaps
    Rating:
    100% of 100

    5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. It is also produced commercially from the seeds of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).

    5-HTP is used for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, migraine and tension-type headaches, fibromyalgia, binge eating associated with obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and along with prescription drugs to treat seizure disorder and Parkinson's disease.

    5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.

  2. L-Arginine 500 mg - 100 vcaps
    Rating:
    0%

    L-Arginine is one of the amino acids produced in the human body by the digestion, or hydrolysis of proteins. L-Arginine can also be produced synthetically. Because it is produced in the body, it is referred to as "nonessential," meaning that no food or supplements are necessary for humans to ingest. Because L-Arginine is naturally converted into nitric oxide by the human body, researchers have conducted preliminary studies to determine the effectiveness in using it as a supplement for supporting cardiovascular health. Other studies indicate that L-Arginine promotes immune health and liver support. Athletes supplement with L-Arginine for its benefits in maintaining lean muscle mass while performing strenuous exercise.

  3. L-Lysine 500 mg - 100 vcaps
    Rating:
    0%

    Lysine is an amino acid found in the protein of foods such as beans, cheese, yogurt, meat, milk, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, and other animal proteins. Proteins derived from grains such as wheat and corn tend to be low in lysine content. The bioavailability of lysine is reduced with food preparation methods, such as heating foods in the presence of a reducing sugar (ie, fructose or glucose); heating foods in the presence of sucrose or yeast; and cooking in the absence of moisture at high temperatures. Lysine has been studied for the prevention and treatment of herpes infections and cold sores. It also increases the intestinal absorption of calcium and eliminates its excretion by the kidney, suggesting that it might be helpful in osteoporosis. Lysine has been investigated for its effects on increasing muscle mass, lowering glucose, and improving anxiety.

  4. L-Tyrosine 500 mg - 100 vcaps
    Rating:
    0%

    A conditionally essential amino acid, L-Tyrosine is one of the most important elements in maintaining neurotransmitter balance in the brain. Though the body has the ability to synthesize enough LTyrosine from phenylalanine to meet its daily physiological demands, in some instances supplementation with L-Tyrosine may be necessary. Since L-Tyrosine is an important cofactor in the production of the neurotransmitters associated with proper mood, norepinephrine and dopamine, Ltyrosine may be beneficial to those seeking to stabilize their frame of mind. Similarly, those with phenylketonuria, who cannot consume phenylalanine, may benefit from L-Tyrosine supplementation. L-Tyrosine can also be useful in promoting nerve and thyroid health.
