5-HTP CR Controlled-Release 5-Hydroxytryptophan 60 Tablets
5-HTP Serotonin Support (100 mg): 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)
is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. There is a massive amount of evidence that suggests that low serotonin levels are a common consequence of modern living. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era results in lowered levels of serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain.All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain serotonin levels. Conditions associated with low serotonin levels that may be helped by 5-HTP include depression, obesity, carbohydrate craving, bulimia, insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, migraine headaches, tension headaches, chronic daily headaches, premenstrual syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
5-HTP Serotonin Support (100 mg):
It’s the natural way to boost seratonin levels and improve brain function.
5-HTP natural ingredients include:
- 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan)
Purified from Griffonia simplicifolia seeds, 5-HTP is a derivative of the amino acid L-tryptophan. It is a multi-functional and mood-enhancing molecule (see below).
- Vitamin B3 (niacin)
In addition to its function as a natural cholesterol lowering vitamin, niacin can help fight depression and improve mood.
- Vitamin B6
This workhorse vitamin is involved in no less than 100 chemical processes in your body every day! Vitamin B6 is an essential nutrient for energy metabolism, red blood cell and hormone productions, as well as for producing neurotransmitters, such as serotonin.
5-HTP is formulated with Enhance metabolite uptake enhancer to promote absorption
Research indicates that 5-HTP may provide a broad spectrum of benefits, including :
- Elevating mood and reducing depression and anxiety
5-HTP can increase the brain’s serotonin neurotransmitter level, which can improve mood and treat depression. A number of European studies suggest that people with depression who had little relief from conventional anti-depressant drugs were successfully treated with 5-HTP.
- Treat insomnia and sleeplessness
5-HTP not only reduces the time it takes to sleep, it also improves the quality of sleep by increasing the duration of REM, or dream states, and of deep sleep. Most people who takes 5-HTP also report feeling more rested after they wake up.
- Reduce migraine pain
As chronic migraine headaches are linked to low levels of serotonin, taking 5-HTP can reduce the frequency, duration, and intensity of migraine headaches.
- Reduce chronic pain and fibromyalgia
Studies have shown that taking 5-HTP regularly can reduce chronic pain and the muscle pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia. In a study of 200 fibromyalgia patients, scientists found that those taking 5-HTP in addition to regular anti-depressants had less pain than those taking the drugs alone.
- Promote weight loss
When taken before meals, 5-HTP can curb appetite. A study of dieting women showed that those who took this supplement reported feeling fuller than those taking placebo, thus allowing them to eat less calories and lose more weight.
5-HTP can also curb sugar and starch cravings.
