NOW 5-HTP 100 mg 60 capsules

5-HTP is the forbearer to serotonin. It is used to improve a person’s mood as well as lessen anxiety levels and aid in weight loss.

5-HTP, an amino acid, is a direct predecessor to serotonin. Serotonin is an important neurological transmitter that has a soothing effect on pain. It also has a relaxing effect, helps to improve moods, lessens anxiety, and is beneficial when used as part of a weight loss plan

5-HTP and Carb Cravings
Research has shown that having an inadequate amount of serotonin is partially responsible for people’s desire to overeat. Therefore, it is not surprising that obese people who crave carbohydrate often have low levels of serotonin. By taking a 5-HTP supplement about 30 minutes before a meal, you can suppress craving and hunger pangs. This is because the serotonin feeds the brain’s carbohydrate satiety center. This is what makes 5-HTP a great asset when used with a weight loss plan

5-HTP and Addiction
Using addictive substances, such as tobacco, alcohol, caffeine and certain narcotics, has been know to elevate serotonin levels. When you eliminate these substances, your serotonin level drastically drops, which is what causes cravings and anxiety. Using 5-HTP can aid in stabilizing the body’s serotonin levels and help to minimize withdrawal symptoms.

5-HTP and PMS
Women who suffer from PMS have reported that the use of serotonin relieves pain, lessens irritability and also helps to control moods swings. This happens because the supplement balances out the decrease in serotonin levels caused naturally by serotonin.

5-HTP and Sleep
Serotonin has been known to have a calming effect. Beccause of this, many people use it to alleviate stress-attacks and to assist in getting a restful night’s sleep. 5-HTP is unlike sedatives, because it does not cause any unwanted side effects, such as grogginess and disturbed sleep schedules. When taken about an hour before bed, it can work as a remedy for insomnia.

Other conditions with low serotonin levels assisted by using 5-HTP:
• Depression
• Obesity
• Carbohydrate craving
• Bulimia
• Insomnia
• Narcolepsy
• Sleep apnea
• Migraine
• Tension headaches
• Chronic daily headaches
• Symptoms of PMS
• Fibromyalgia

Note: Now Foods only uses Pharmaceutical Level 5-htp, produced by Axel Chemicals (Nuova-Linnea) in Switzerland. Positively the best value in the world!
