Our healthcare providers have given the European L-5 HTP high marks
for the support it offers. This is naturally sourced from the seed of
the Griffonia Simplicifolia plant. This dietary supplement combines L-5
HTP with vitamin B6 and vitamin C to offer important co-factors to
support normal brain health. European L-5 HP: 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid, which
is directly converted to serotonin. Serotonin is associated with mood,
appetite, sleep, memory, learning, and temperature regulation.

Nutritionís 5-HTP is naturally sourced from the seed of the Griffonia
simplicifolia plant. We test all our products for impurities and
5-HTP Varies in Purity, Quality and Dosing Strengthen
5-HTP found in the marketplace varies greatly in terms of purity,
quality and dosing strength. CHK Nutrition stands out by offering
premium quality, 98% pure 100 mg 5-HTP.
Our early research, which started in 1995, tried to use 5-HTP available
at the time. The 5-HTP came from various sources. Within a few months of
research, it was clear that there was a wide variation in patient
responses depending on which source was used. We examined purity and
found that patients using high quality 5-HTP experienced positive health
benefits, while those on lower quality 5-HTP reported little to no
supportive effects. Examination of product purity found that companies
not listing their purity had a purity range of 5% up to 95%. Typically,
companies with purity greater than 95% reported their purity.
Why our product is 98% pure.
The process of extracting 5-HTP from the Griffonia simplicifolia seed
makes it impossible to obtain 100% pure 5-HTP. As with any extraction,
there is a natural loss that occurs. However, our 5-HTP comes very close
to 100% pure. We have decided to adopt a 98% pure labeling to avoid any
possible mislabeling. Extracting from a natural ingredient has many
factors that can influence purity. In the nutrition industry, there is a
little secret about the allowance for margin of error. We are picky and
do not accept this margin. Therefore, we refuse to advertise our
product as 99% pure because we will never allow our product to fall
below what we promise. Therefore, even though our batches report much
higher, we choose to advertise 98% pure 5-HTP. This is a percentage that
we promise we can meet every time.
