Find Your Balance With The Brain’s “Confidence Molecule”
If you could bottle the neurotransmitter serotonin, it would instantly be one of the top supplements: After all, it’s not only responsible for carrying signals between your nerves – in the process, it helps boost your mood and emotional well-being, while curbing stress.
In short, serotonin helps keep you satisfied — which is why some experts call it your brain’s “Confidence Molecule.”
However, serotonin itself can’t cross the blood-brain barrier — meaning that your brain must produce it from within.
Fortunately, though — you can naturally support and enhance your brain’s levels of serotonin indirectly by giving your system its direct amino acid precursor known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP for short).
Naturally Increase Serotonin With Bulletproof™ 5-HTP
5-HTP is what your body naturally makes from the amino acid tryptophan, and turning tryptophan into 5-HTP is your body’s natural bottleneck in the production of serotonin. Supplementing with 5-HTP — which readily crosses the blood-brain-barrier — is the easiest way to organically support your levels of the mood-lifting neurotransmitter serotonin. In addition to improving emotional well-being, recent scientific studies also suggest 5-HTP can help steer your brain’s desire away from sugar and carbohydrates.
Bulletproof combines natural plant-sourced 5-HTP with vitamin B-6 for optimal conversion to serotonin (one of the primary functions of B-6 is to assist in the synthesis of amino acids and neurotransmitters).

Q: What is 5-HTP?
A: 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is the direct precursor to serotonin. 5-HTP is a drug-free and naturally occurring plant-sourced amino acid that crosses the blood-brain barrier to assist in the synthesis of serotonin.
Q: Why is Bulletproof™ 5-HTP combined with vitamin B6?
A: One of the primary functions of vitamin B6 is to assist in the synthesis of amino acids and neurotransmitters, including 5-HTP and serotonin.
Q: Will Bulletproof™ 5-HTP make me tired?
A: 5-HTP increases the production of serotonin in the brain, which is a chemical messenger that can affect sleep, mood, diet and appetite. A single dose of Bulletproof 5-HTP should not make you tired, but it can vary from person to person.
Q: Will Bulletproof™ 5-HTP give me energy?
A: 5-HTP increases the production of serotonin in the brain, which doesn’t directly impact energy. However, you may experience improved energy levels indirectly as a result of supporting a positive outlook from taking Bulletproof™ 5-HTP.
Q: Can I take Bulletproof™ 5-HTP if I’m taking a prescription drug to balance my mood?
A: Please consult your healthcare provider if you are taking any prescription drugs for depression, migraines, or psychiatric disorders.
Q: What are excipients and flow agents? Why is there rice on the label?
A: Excipients and flow agents such as rice ingredients are part of the manufacturing process required to encapsulate ingredients. Bulletproof formulates its products with the latest technologies and adopts new and improved technologies as they become available. We have chosen to use the outermost layer of the rice grain (rice hull or bran) because it is one of the cleanest excipients available. Other options are less natural, like polydimethylsiloxane, sodium bicarbonate, stearic acid, and powdered cellulose. We use the least possible amount of rice hull or bran as necessary in the manufacturing process — so, the rice content is very minimal, and carries no discernible impact on the amount of complex carbohydrates in your individual diet.
