Tryfonia MAX 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. Together, 5-HTP, serotonin and melatonin are important for the regulation of mood and healthy sleep.

5-HTP is primarily used to support mood through its ability to boost serotonin, the neurotransmitter associated with happiness. 5-HTP has been compared to various tricyclic antidepressants and has been found to be as effective and faster-acting with fewer side effects. Since serotonin and melatonin are involved in regulating the sleep/wake cycle, 5-HTP can also enhance sleep quality. Additionally, research supports a role for 5-HTP in reducing headaches and the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Studies in Spain and Italy found that 5-HTP was comparable to the drug methysergide in alleviating the symptoms of migraines (over 70% in both groups) while eliciting considerably fewer side effects. Fibromyalgia patients have been found to have low serotonin levels and have shown symptomatic improvement with the use of tricyclic and SSRI antidepressants. Several clinical trials with 5-HTP have confirmed significant improvements in symptoms, including pain, morning stiffness, nervousness, and fatigue.

Tryfonia MAX is twice the strength of regular Tryfonia.

Background

5-Hydroxytryptophan- The Immediate Serotonin Precursor

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), a metabolite of tryptophan, is derived from the seed of Griffonia simplicifolia, a small shrub tree that grows off the Ivory Coast and Ghana. 5-HTP is then processed in France. 5-HTP can also be made synthetically in a laboratory. Natural 5-HTP is devoid of any “peak x” contaminants.

It is well-established that one of the basic physiological causes of depression is low serotonin levels. Low serotonin levels may also be associated with conditions other than depression, including anxiety, insomnia, aggressiveness, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and some obsessive-compulsive and appetite disorders.

Unfortunately, serotonin taken as a supplement cannot penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB). However, naturally derived 5HTP, a serotonin precursor, is well absorbed orally (70%) and penetrates the BBB, where it is converted into serotonin. Food does not interfere with its absorption.
