The 5-HTP+ Patch was first launched in early 2014, following several years of development and testing, to bring to market a much-awaited 5-HTP transdermal patch that solves the common problems associated with taking 5-HTP in tablet form. Following extensive customer feedback and advances in transdermal patch technology, an improved version of the 5-HTP+ Patch was subsequently developed and launched at the end of 2016.
Transdermal patches have become more widely accepted in recent years, in particular as a result of the popularity of nicotine and contraceptive patches. The 5-HTP+ Patch allows people to take 5-HTP without swallowing tablets and is released directly in to the bloodstream, meaning that a fraction of the dosage of 5-HTP is required and the amount of 5-HTP in the body remains relatively constant over a longer period of time, when compared to tablets.*
Our patches are formulated and developed in the UK, and extensively tested for quality and safety by an FDA registered laboratory in the USA. They contain only the purest naturally sourced ingredients from their native environment, which are first sterilised then carefully transported to one of China’s leading specialist pharmaceutical-grade manufacturers for processing in to transdermal patches. Our manufacturing unit is renowned for its innovation and quality of manufacturing and operates to the highest standards, conforming to international sanitary and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices).
