Introducing our NEW
Chief Originals®5-HTP Powder
for optimal health!
Your body naturally produces an amino acid called 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which your body then converts into other substances, like serotonin and melatonin. Because serotonin and melatonin play vital roles in supporting a positive mood and promoting healthy sleep patterns, respectively, it is important to maintain healthy levels of 5-HTP in your body. While 5-HTP is not commonly found in most food sources, it can be acquired by taking lab-verified 5-HTP supplements.
The Health Ranger Store is proud to introduce our new Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder. Extracted from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, our premium Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder delivers pure 5-HTP to support a positive mood and promote deep and restful sleep. This powder extract contains no gluten or GMOs and is not treated with ETO or radiation. It is also vegan, certified Kosher, BSE/TSE-free and is lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
What is 5-HTP?**
Also known as oxitriptan, 5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid that supports your body’s overall health and well-being. 5-HTP is best known for its ability to naturally elevate your mood and support normal sleep patterns. This is because 5-HTP plays a crucial role in your body’s natural production of the compounds serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is used by nerve cells to communicate. It is also considered a natural mood stabilizer. Serotonin can be converted into the hormone melatonin, which is responsible for regulating your body’s natural sleep cycle. Melatonin also works as an antioxidant and is involved in promoting healthy immune function and maintaining healthy cortisol and blood pressure levels.
By supplementing with 5-HTP, you can easily maintain optimal levels of serotonin and melatonin, both of which are necessary for your body to function optimally. According to a study published in the journal Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, 5-HTP provides antioxidant benefits that can help protect your body from oxidative stress.
Griffonia simplicifolia plant seeds
One of the best natural sources of 5-HTP**
Most whole food sources do not contain 5-HTP, which is why it is nearly impossible to acquire 5-HTP from your diet. However, high levels of 5-HTP can naturally be found in the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, a small, green shrub that is native to the mountain areas of Central and Western Africa. This plant has a long history of use in Traditional African Medicine due to its potent health-promoting properties.
The Health Ranger Store has taken great lengths to source our pure 5-HTP from high-quality Griffonia simplicifolia plants grown by trusted suppliers. We use only clean water and ethanol to carefully extract our premium 5-HTP powder to ensure maximum potency.
Health benefits of 5-HTP**

Supports sensible weight management plans
Uplifts your mood
Melatonin is considered a natural sleep aid. Having adequate levels of this hormone promotes deep and restful sleep, whereas having insufficient levels is linked to poor sleep quality. Supplementing with 5-HTP can help you maintain melatonin levels within the normal range. It also supports healthy sleep patterns.
Serotonin is your body’s natural feel-good chemical. If you have low levels of serotonin, you may be more prone to experiencing depressed and anxious feelings. Fortunately, 5-HTP is a natural precursor to serotonin. This means that supplementing with 5-HTP can naturally elevate your mood and help reduce anxious feelings.
A study published in the journal European Neurology reported that supplementing with 5-HTP can aid healthy cognitive function. 5-HTP promotes the production of serotonin, which performs vital functions in your brain. By helping you maintain optimal serotonin levels, 5-HTP can support healthy brain function.
According to a study published in the Journal of Neural Transmission, 5-HTP can promote feelings of fullness. This means that 5-HTP can support reasonable weight management goals, especially when accompanied by a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
How to use 5-HTP powder**
Chief Originals® 5-HTP Powder can easily be added to your favorite shakes, smoothies, teas, juices and other beverages. Here are a few suggestions for maximizing your intake of 5-HTP powder:
For a good night’s sleep, simply take 200 mg of 5-HTP powder 30-45 minutes before going to bed. For best results, pair it with a high-quality Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) supplement and valerian root.
To support a positive mood, take 50-100 mg of 5-HTP powder three times a day with your meals. You can also take it alongside either an L-tyrosine supplement or vitamin B6.
If you want to achieve sensible weight management goals, take 250 mg of 5-HTP powder 30 minutes before a meal and combine with proper exercise and diet. It is best consumed with green tea or beverages rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
Consult your naturopathic physician or healthcare provider to optimize your 5-HTP intake.
