5-HTP is an amino acid vital to the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Low serotonin is linked to many common conditions including depression, obesity, sleeplessness, migraines, and fibromyalgia. By improving serotonin levels, Natural Factors 5-HTP can help support emotional well-being, improve sleep quality, relieve the pain of fibromyalgia, prevent migraines, and curb appetite.
Happiness, health, and general well-being are closely tied to the secretion of various hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemical messengers. One of these, serotonin, has a powerful influence over our emotional state, appetite, sleep habits, and pain tolerance. Many chronic diseases, including depression, have been clinically linked to low serotonin levels. Serotonin is made in our bodies, but the building blocks it needs are often lacking. Natural Factors 5-HTP provides those necessary building blocks in the form of 5-hydroxytryptophan, a direct precursor to serotonin. By boosting serotonin levels, 5-HTP is clinically shown to enhance mood, fight depression, relieve insomnia by improving sleep quality, curb appetite and food cravings, prevent migraines, and relieve pain from fibromyalgia.
5-HTP is a derivative of tryptophan, the compound in turkey responsible for that sleepy, satisfied feeling. Because it is one step closer to serotonin than tryptophan, it is more effective at relieving symptoms associated with low serotonin. Unlike prescription antidepressants, 5-HTP boosts serotonin levels without unpleasant side effects, and does not create dependence. While 5-HTP can sometimes cause mild gastrointestinal side effects, Natural Factors enteric-coated caplets are designed to dissolve in the intestines rather than the stomach, significantly reducing the potential for nausea.
Each enteric coated caplet contains: L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) (Griffonia simplicifolia) (seed) 50 mg
Dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, enteric coating (ethylcellulose, medium chain triglycerides, oleic acid, carbohydrate gum [cellulose], glycerin, sodium alginate, stearic acid), vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant).
5-HTP is an intermediate metabolite between L-tryptophan and serotonin. Supplementing with 5-HTP provides natural support for sleep, emotional well-being, and relief of fibromyalgia symptoms. Enteric coated caplets minimize gastric discomfort and optimize absorption.
I'm using this product for sleep. In the first few months, it was working great. It really helped me to sleep better and longer. After about 2 months, I found it less effective. I am going to try to higher does next time.
No nausea since it is enteric coated.
I love Natural Factors. I take 1 5 htp before bed and it helps me to sleep better and more soundly.
