NOW 5-HTP 100 mg 120 Capsules

5-HTP is the predecessor of serotonin. It has been known to improve moods, decrease anxiety and is also a great dietary aid.

5-HTP is an amino acid that is a direct forbearer to serotonin, which is an important neurotransmitter that alleviates pain and helps you to relax. It has also been shown that it improves moods, decreases anxiety levels and is also a great dietary supplement.

5-HTP and Carb Cravings
Researchers have found that not having an adequate amount of serotonin in your body is partially responsible for one’s desire to overeat. So, it is not surprising that people who are obese often have low serotonin levels. Taking a 5-HTP supplement about 30 minutes before eating helps to suppress cravings, as well as, hunger pangs. It does this by feeding the brain’s carbohydrate satiety center, which is why 5-HTP an amazing asset when used as part of a weight loss plan.

5-HTP and Addiction
Using addictive substances, such as tobacco, alcohol, caffeine and certain narcotics, causes an elevation in the body’s serotonin levels. When you eliminate these substances, your serotonin level drastically drops. By taking 5-HTp, you can stabilize your serotonin levels, therefore, minimizing any symptoms of withdrawal

5-HTP and PMS
Women who suffer from PMS have reposted that serotonin helps to provide pain relief, decreases their irritability and causes them to have less mood swings. This is because the supplement balances out the hormone-induced drop in serotonin levels that occurs during menstruation.

5-HTP and Sleep
Serotonin has been known to have a calming effect. This is why many people rely on it to help alleviate stress-attacks and to assist in getting a restful night’s sleep, without the side effects, such as disturbed sleep schedules and grogginess, that often occur with the use of sedatives. When taken regularly, about an hour or so before bed, it can help to cure insomnia

• Depression
• Obesity

• Narcolepsy

• Migraines
• Tension headaches
• Chronic headaches

  1. 5-HTP Review
    5 5

    Griffonia Simplificolia is a natural mood lifter also known as 5-HTP that is commonly found in a variety of diet pills. The mood lifting ingredients found in 5-HTP, when used in diet pills, have been found to provide much better results. There are several benefits to the use of 5-htp such and in increase in serotonin which has been found to suppress the appetite.

    Studies have shown that serotonin, a neurotransmitter is responsible for mood and the 5-HTP increases the serotonin resulting in a natural increase in mood. The results are similar to those found in a mild antidepressant. Anti-depressants are used by people to raise their mood during times of depression. There are no completed trials as of yet, however, testing is being conducted by pharmaceutical companies for the use of antidepressants as a weight loss medication.

    It is important to keep in mind that the ingredients found in 5-HTP are not promoting weight loss, however, it has been shown to increase the mood level. It is not intended to be a replacement for genuine ingredients intended for weight loss. The primary purpose of 5-HTP is to increase the mood.

    With the appropriate ingredients that have been manufactured for the purpose of weight loss, the addition of 5-HTP is often to be a beneficial and complimentary ingredient. The basic requirements of supplements used for weight loss must be met prior to the additional of complementary ingredients such as 5-HTP.
