Serotonin is the chemical directly responsive for emotions, appetite, behavior, thoughts, and sleep. Low levels of this compound are related to negative feelings such as sadness, anxiety, and depression.
The only active ingredient in this formulation is 5-HTP derived from Griffonia seeds. The supplement is 100% vegetarian and, according to the company, it offers a controlled delivery system that releases the core ingredient slowly and then steadily over a period of 12 hours.
