Transmitting signals across the different regions of the brain is done through chemical messages called neurotransmitters, the most important being serotonin.
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a metabolite of the amino acid Tryptophan and is a direct precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin, also called the “essence of happiness.”
5-HTP is also a precursor of the melatonin hormone that regulates the wake-sleep cycle. The level of serotonin has a direct influence on the state of mind and for a restful sleep. When serotonin levels are reduced due to various causes such as daily stress, a sedentary lifestyle, inadequate nutrition as well as other aspects typical of today’s everyday life, the behavioral changes listed below appear.
5-HTP supplementation reduces the effects of low levels of serotonin in the brain. In fact, 5-HTP is converted to serotonin, but without the unwanted side effects of synthetic drugs such as Prozac. In fact, 5-HTP is a natural, clinically tested alternative to this very fashionable medicine.
Symptoms of a serotonin deficiency may be one or more of the following:
In several recent clinical trials, 5-HTP has been shown to be equal or even superior to synthetic drugs used to treat nervous depression. A study in Norway has shown 5-HTP has to significantly improve sleep. Two studies in Spain and Italy have shown that 5-HTP is effective against migraines on depressive background.
