Helps to reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches
Promotes restful sleep
Smile 5HTP enhances serotonin, our happy hormone, to help promote a healthy mood balance. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is also responsible for creating feelings of satiety.
Smile 5-HTP is enteric-coated, which allows 5-HTP to be absorbed in the small intestine. Other 5-HTP products that are not enteric-coated can cause nausea when optimal doses are taken.
5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfied so that you do not need to eat anymore. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate (sugar) cravings and overeating.
Why Take Smile 5HTP?
Smile 5-HTP may be beneficial for those experiencing low mood or symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Smile 5HTP is also for anyone looking to reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches.

5-HTP (5-hydroxy-tryptophan) is a precursor to the calming neurotransmitter, serotonin. Due to its quick conversion into serotonin, 5-HTP has been used to support a healthy mood, fibromyalgia, migraines and sleep.
