Improves mood, anxiety, food cravings, PMS symptoms and fibromyalgia pain.
5-HTP Enhances Serotonin5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfi ed so that you do not need to eat anymore. Serotonin defi ciency contributes to weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and panic attacks. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate (sugar) cravings and overeating. 5-HTP reduces appetite while also enhancing mood and increasing energy levels. 5-HTP Improves Mood and Sleep5-HTP has been extensively researched for the treatment of mood enhancement. It also relieves insomnia. 5-HTP allows for natural sleep without the drugged feeling in the morning that can occur in those taking prescription sedatives. 5-HTP Aids Weight LossWeight management is another benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP. One well controlled trial using 900 mg a day of 5-HTP in 20 obese individuals found that, during the first 6 weeks of the study where participants ate their usual diet and during the following 7-12 weeks where they dieted, a significant weight loss in the 5-HTP group occurred but not in those taking a placebo. 5-HTP Improves Fibryomyalgia SymptomsThere is evidence that the body's serotonin pathway does not work in people with fi bromyalgia, and 5-HTP has been shown to stop the pain of fi bromyalgia. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 90-day study involving 50 patients with fi bromyalgia, 5-HTP was found to significantly improve anxiety, pain intensity, quality of sleep and fatigue. SMILE 5-HTP: A Superior Solution Smile 5-HTP is enteric-coated, which allows 5-HTP to be absorbed in the small intestine. Other 5-HTP products that are not enteric-coated can cause nausea when optimal doses are taken. Take a high-quality multivitamin with minerals like Multismart to ensure you get adequate levels of magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin B3 because these nutrients aid 5-HTP conversion into serotonin.

this is the best supplement I bought it for my mother it she has use it for 3 months and had seen a difference she has less stress and feel better
I have been taking this product for almost a year now and was advised to take it by a local health food store. It was very expensive everywhere I shopped but was desperate to find something to help with my depression (due to Fibromyalgia). I was not disappointed. So far, I have not had a bad downward spiral since taking this product. Once I found it on Healthy Planet for a better price, I was relieved because I am recently unemployed and although it is still expensive, I can manage the cost because it is a crucial part of my every day life. Being unemployed, I need to be sure my spirits stay lifted and so far, so good! I am so happy that I was directed to this product. I have never had a problem with sleep, but for depression, it sure works for me in combination with the other products I take. I just hope it stays affordable.
I switched from tryptophan to this, after consulting a trusted pharmacist to confirm dosing, and it was a very good decision. I find this cleaner and more effective to help sleep, and was surprised by the lightness in my mood the next day. A good fit.
I take this at night to help me sleep an when my depression an anxiety come back, I find that it does help get me back on track.
My naturopath prescribed 5-HTP and P5P, and starting from the first day I took them I slept an average of 7.5 hours per night, compared to 5.5 hours before I started taking them. So in combination with P5P these are very effective, and without side effects!
This is a great product I am using it for many years
This product really helped a member of my family with depression! Another great product from Lorna!
