CraveArrest™ combines targeted nutrients and botanicals that help maintain healthy neurotransmitter production and function that influences the body’s craving signals.* This synergistic formula includes clinically relevant amounts of the precursors, L-tyrosine and 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), in a 10:1 ratio, along with B vitamins to support dopamine and serotonin production.* These neurotransmitters play an essential role in promoting normal appetite and cravings.* The adaptogenic herb, Rhodiola rosea, is included to encourage a healthy stress response.*

Recommended Use: Take 2 capsules per day on an empty stomach or as directed by your health-care practitioner.

  • 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) – Derivative of the amino acid tryptophan, and precursor to serotonin, the wellknown “feel good” brain chemical. 5-HTP is more effective than tryptophan at raising brain levels of serotonin, because 5-HTP crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily. Healthy serotonin levels promote a positive mental outlook, calmer and more appropriate responses to everyday stressors, and may help mitigate carbohydrate cravings
  • L-Tyrosine – Amino acid precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine and adrenaline. Dopamine levels are often low in people prone to addictive behavior and unstable moods - issues that can hinder a person’s ability to make positive changes in their diet and lifestyle.
  • Vitamin C – Key nutrient for the adrenal glands. The adrenals are responsible for producing adrenaline and cortisol, hormones involved in the “fight or flight” reaction to stress. Poor adrenal function may result in physical sluggishness as well as a negative mental outlook.
  • Vitamins B6 and B12 – Required as cofactors in order for the body to produce serotonin and dopamine.
  • Rhodiola rosea – Adaptogenic root that helps support a healthy stress response and therefore may reduce the desire to turn to unhealthy foods and behaviors during times of psychological stress.
