5-HTP

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body. It is needed for producing serotonin, a neurotransmitter that sends signals between nerve cells. Low levels of serotonin can have an impact on appetite, sleep, weight, pain levels, and mental health. 5-HTP supplements have become increasingly popular as a way to boost serotonin levels. 

Main benefits of 5-HTP*
  1. 5-HTP can support weight loss by helping to decrease appetite and promote a feeling of fullness that prevents overeating (1). *
  2. A serotonin imbalance is often associated with depression. 5-HTP supplements may help to ease depression by increasing serotonin levels (2). *
  3. Low serotonin can be a factor in muscular pain, bone pain, and general weakness. People suffering from fibromyalgia may benefit from taking 5-HTP supplements (3)
  4. 5-HTP can help in reducing migraines (4, 5).*
