What is 5-HTP?
Hydroxytryptophen, also known as 5-HTP, is an occurring amino acid that produces serotonin, a chemical compound that primarily controls our mood. Serotonin can be found in the intestine and the brain. A happy person generally enjoys better serotonin levels.
How does 5-HTP work?
5-HTP affects both the brain and the nervous system. It increases the synthesis or the production of serotonin. This chemical compound neurotransmitter helps improve your mood, diminishes hunger and decreases certain cravings for food.
Who can take 5-HTP?
Really anyone over the age of 18 can take 5-HTP unless they are pregnant or mothers who breastfeed. However, we would always advise that you consult with you doctor if you have never taken 5-HTP before.
What are the Benefits of 5-HTP?
- Reduces symptoms of anxiety
When 5-HTP increases serotonin, it also increases the level of melatonin. This is a hormone that helps to re-establish healthy sleeping patterns of people who suffer with a chronic sleeping disorder, such as insomnia. It produces the same effects as antidepressants SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors).
- Weight Loss
A lack of serotonin can cause people to overeat. In fact, serotonin deficiency is also one of the contributory factors of obesity. 5-HTP produces serotonin which releases cholecystokinin, the satiety hormone that affects food cravings.
5-HTP can help to reduce the pain caused by fibromyalgia, a musculoskeletal condition that amplifies the painful sensation. Fibromyalgia includes joint pain, fatigue and widespread muscle pain.
- Better mood and increased energy levels
A serotonin deficiency is strongly connected with depression, which is blocked by 5-HTP. As 5-HTP increases the serotonin level, it also sends signals to the brain that block depression and anxiety.
- Other benefits
According to research, 5-HTP also actively reduces the severity and frequency of migraines and headaches. It also improves your ability to concentrate. You can achieve these benefits with a proper diet, the right dosage of 5-HTP and regular exercise.
