What makes Jigsaw Health 5-HTP w/SRT® so unique?
Jigsaw has taken only the best form of 5-HTP (or 5HTP) that exists — sourced from a European manufacturer, Linnea, which has the purest form of 5-HTP available — and combined it with their proprietary, sustained release technology (SRT) to make this 5-HTP supplement.
Why is Sustained Release Technology so important?
First, 5-HTP has a very short half-life in the body — only about 90 minutes. That means that it is gone from the body very rapidly after being consumed. This is the reason that most people who take 5-HTP supplements often take many doses throughout the day in order to maintain the serotonin supporting effect.
The other problem with non-sustained release 5-HTP supplement formulas is that when you dump a lot of 5-HTP into the GI tract all at once, it is rapidly converted to serotonin right there. What you really want though, is for the majority of your 5-HTP supplement to be converted to serotonin in the brain. So releasing it over a longer period of time allows the 5-HTP to be gradually absorbed and converted where it is most needed...in the brain.
Not only is this better for seeing a more long-lasting effect, but it can also help avoid an upset stomach which some people experience as a side effect when 5-HTP is dumped into the intestinal tract all at once. For most people, sustained release technology will also provide the ability to take a lower dose of 5-HTP, while still having the same — if not even greater — support.

Need a refresher on why people take 5-HTP?
5-HTP is an advanced form of tryptophan, the naturally occurring amino acid that tells your brain to boost serotonin output — which is used in the brain to promote overall feelings of well-being. Unlike other expensive options, Jigsaw Health’s 5-HTP supplement naturally helps your body maintain a stable mood, sleep better and have a healthy response to anxiety and stress.
