HWP partners with the highest quality ingredient providers in the industry. We highlight these branded ingredients on a regular basis. In this post, we take a look at Nura’s CLEANMOOD.
Branded Ingredient: CLEANMOOD™
Overview: NURA’s CLEAMOOD provides a sustainable, water extracted 5-HTP, that is certified organic and certified glyphosate-free by the Detox Project. CLEANMOOD is available in powder form that is water-soluble, taste-free, and pH-stable, so it can be used in a wide array of applications such as pills, hot beverages, candies, and gummies.
Health Benefits: 5-HTP stands for 5-hydroxytryptophan, and it is extracted from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a plant native to Africa. As a result of 5-HTP being the immediate precursor to the “feel-good” neurotransmitter, serotonin, it has been shown in research to aid in stress management, healthy sleep cycles, as well as satiety and weight management.
