Product Description

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter with many functions, including the regulation of intestinal processes, mood, appetite, sleep, memory, and learning. Low levels of serotonin are associated with a range of conditions, including chronic and migraine headaches, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and depression. There are anti-depressant drugs that work by raising serotonin levels, but they are associated with adverse side effects. 5-HTP is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and is a precursor to serotonin. 5-HTP is converted into serotonin and studies show that supplementation can raise serotonin levels and reduce symptoms associated with low serotonin.

Product Description

5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin (5-HT), so supplementing with 5-HTP raises serotonin levels. In general, serotonin is thought to be beneficial for moderating or improving mood, sleep, anxiety, aggression, appetite, obesity, panic attacks, sexual function, carbohydrate cravings and migraines.

Proven Relief from Fibromyalgia Symptoms

There is clear proof that 5-HTP can help with fibromyalgia. Two major clinical trials involving 100 patients have shown that 5-HTP causes a reduction in pain, tender points, morning stiffness, fatigue and anxiety. These results were sustained over time, and were accompanied by few or no side effects. From this it is apparent that 5-HTP offers non-prescription relief for the many people who suffer from fibromyalgia.

Depression and 5-HTP

Many medically prescribed anti-depressants work by raising serotonin levels. Therefore, it is possible that 5-HTP may help to combat depression, and some researchers have proposed that 5-HTP might be useful in all of the usual cases in which anti-depressants are prescribed: for depression, for weight loss, to improve sleep quality, to reduce anxiety and to prevent migraine headaches. Smaller, short-term studies have supported the use of 5-HTP for depression, finding it as useful as a prescription anti-depressant, but without the negative side effects.

Weight Loss and 5-HTP

In some cases, weight problems are associated with the over-consumption of carbohydrates usually in the form of starchy, sugary foods. This may be due to the fact that carbs raise levels of serotonin in the brain, causing people to feel better – they may be unconsciously self-medicating their depression with excess amounts of unhealthy foods. As 5-HTP causes a rise in serotonin levels, it is possible

that it may reduce carb cravings, thus ultimately helping with weight control. For example, one study of overweight diabetics showed that taking 5-HTP resulted in less carb cravings, a lower fat intake, and weight loss. These findings were then replicated in non-diabetics.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule 3 times daily
