5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), also known as oxitriptan, is a naturally occurring amino acid extracted from the beans of an African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. It is a chemical precursor as well as metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. The positive mood-supporting action of 5-HTP is thought to be derived from its effect on the production of serotonin in central nervous system tissue. 5-HTP can help support positive mood, appetite management, relaxation, and restful sleep when taken as directed and in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.*
However, these benefits are only meaningful if the supplement is inherently safe, and some are not. In 1998, researchers at the Mayo Clinic asserted that several commercially available 5-HTP supplements contained trace levels of Peak-X, a substance that has been associated with eosinophilia myalgia syndrome and similar illnesses. Our 5-HTP Gold is manufactured using an extract that is guaranteed by an independent, third-party lab to be 100% free of Peak-X, so you can be assured that you are getting an exceptionally pure product without the safety hazards present in other 5-HTP supplements.
Non-GMO Project Verified
5-HTP Gold is Non-GMO Project Verified, which provides assurance that the product has been manufactured in accordance with the best practices for GMO avoidance. The Non-GMO Project is North America's premier verification program.

Vegan Action has offered vegan certification since 1995. Their official seal is proof that 5-HTP Gold does not contain ingredients derived from animals or animal by-products, is free of animal-derived GMOs or genes, and is not the subject of ongoing animal testing.
Free of 7 Common Allergens
We like to make supplements that can be enjoyed by everyone. That's why our products are always compliant with the best practices for avoiding allergens and minimizing cross-contamination. 5-HTP Gold is free of soy, gluten, egg, milk, peanut, shellfish, and corn allergens.
Made Without Magnesium Stearate
The use of magnesium stearate is a topic of contention in the supplement industry, with some studies suggesting it can have long-term health consequences. Our take on the matter is simple: as long as magnesium stearate has yet to be proven safe, we WILL NOT use it in any of our products.
