What is it?
Pro Tryfonia is L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) derived from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract. 5-HTP is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan, and an essential precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin and the neurohormone melatonin.
How Does it Work?
5-HTP is primarily used to support mood through its ability to boost serotonin levels. Ultimately, those who suffer with mood imbalances such as: low mood and anxiety; and migraines, fibromyalgia, or sleep disorders, may benefit from taking AOR Pro Tryfonia.
AOR's Pro Tryfonia delivers a clinically supported dose of this important metabolite to maintain serotonin levels.
