5-HTP - Botanical Ingredient - Linnea


5-HTP L-5-HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN DMF Linnea extracts and manufactures 5-HTP as a botanical ingredient for pharmaceutical purposes. In investigations into the causes of neuropsychiatric disorders, sufficient evidence has been found to support the theory whereby an unbalanced metabolism of amino acids, and Serotonin in particular, plays an important role in causing these disorders. In fact, these substances are present in a reduced quantity in the brain tissue of depressed patients and in some neurological syndromes their rate of metabolite production is low.
