Description Ingredients

5 HTP is an amino acid in the body which is converted into serotonin - the brain chemical responsible for making us feel calm and happy. As well as improving our mood, serotonin is also involved in our behaviour, appetite, impulse control, and sleep. It appears that low serotonin levels are a common consequence of our modern lifestyles. As a result, many people suffer from bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, suffer from muscle aches and are overweight. 5 HTP has become a very popular supplement because it can help people with these problems and has few, if any side effects.

This 5htp formula contains 100mg of 5HTP from the Griffonia Simplicifolia plant, 200mg of Vitamin C and 15mg vitamin B6. These particular vitamins are used in the serotonin conversion process.

Proposed Uses of 5 HTP

Depression: 5 HTP deficiencies are believed to contribute to depression. 5-HTP supplementation has been shown to be effective in treating mild to moderate depression. In clinical trials it produced similar results to those gained with the antidepressant drugs imipramine and fluvoxamine. Fibromyalgia: Studies show that 5 HTP enhances serotonin synthesis, which increases pain tolerance and sleep quality. Patients with fibromyalgia have reported an improvement in symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and somatic pain (number of painful areas and morning stiffness).

Insomnia: In many trials, 5 HTP has reduced the time required to fall asleep and improved quality of sleep for those suffering from insomnia.

Migraines: 5 HTP reduced the frequency and severity of migraine headaches in clinical trials. Also, significantly fewer side effects were observed with 5-HTP compared to other migraine headache drugs.

Obesity: 5 HTP creates a fuller feeling - satisfying a person's appetite sooner. Thus allowing patients to stick with diets easier. It has also been shown to decrease the carbohydrate intake in obese patients.

Children’s Headaches: Children with sleep disorder-related headaches seem to respond to 5 HTP treatment.
