L-5-HTP (30) ES-L5HTP-30
- Tryptophan is converted to L-5-HTP, which is then converted to Serotonin. Tryptophan was taken off the market many years ago due to a contamination problem. This is when L-5-HTP was found to be a suitable alternative.
- Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which helps us feel full, satisfied, relaxed, happy and more.
- Supporting healthy weight:
- Serotonin levels are increased by eating carbohydrates. This is the link between eating high carbohydrate snacks and foods when people feel stressed and/or depressed to make themselves feel better. Eating too many carbohydrates causes the body to store those extra calories as fat, causing a vicious cycle.
- Four studies on 5-HTP have shown a link to the above theory. Participants lost weight and ate fewer carbohydrates.
- Support sleep
- L-5-HTP is converted to Serotonin, which the body also uses to fall asleep. For this reason 5-HTP should be used with caution for people using heavy machinery or driving,etc.
- Supporting mood
- There have been several small studies with 5-HTP and antidepressants. 5-HTP seemed to have similar benefits without the harsh side effects.
- This should not be taken with prescription medications like antidepressants. All others medication users should consult a doctor first.
- This is a standardized extract from Griffonia simplicifolia.
- We have added vitamin C and B-6, which are used in the conversion of Tryptophan to Serotonin in the body.
- Peak X is a known possible contaminant, which is believed (not absolutely certain) to be the same substance that made Tryptophan cause many people to become ill and some die. This is a European manufacture, Nuova Linnea (Swiss company). They test and certify all their material free of Peak X.
Our L-5-HTP is formulated with important nutrients to optimize its effectiveness. Vitamin C and B-6 aid the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin in the body.
