The transmission of signals through different brain regions is accomplished with chemicals called neurotransmitters, in particular with serotonin.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a metabolite of tryptophan and is a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin called “the essence of happiness”.

5-HTP is also the precursor of melatonin hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle.

Serotonin levels have a direct influence on mood and sleep.

When serotonin levels are reduced for various reasons such as:

  • daily stress,
  • a sedentary lifestyle,
  • poor diet and other aspects of everyday life typical of today, it determines the so-called depressive crisis or in other words depression.

This mental illness can be accompanied by physical aspects such as:

  • fatigue;
  • insomnia or excessive sleeping;
  • poor appetite or excessive appetite.

Supplementing with 5-HTP reduces the effects of a low level of serotonin in the brain. In fact, 5-HTP transforms into serotonin, but without the unwanted side effects of synthetic drugs. 5-HTP is a natural alternative, clinically tested.

The symptoms of a serotonin deficiency may be one or more of the following:

  • depression;
  • insomnia;
  • anxiety;
  • obsessive behavior;
  • migraines;
  • persistent hunger;
  • aggressiveness;
  • extensive withdrawal from others.

In several recent studies, 5-HTP has been shown to equal to or greater than synthetic drugs used to treat nervous depression. In a study in Norway, 5-HTP has been shown to improve sleep. Two studies in Italy and Spain, have shown that 5-HTP is effective against migraine from depressive background.

Effects of supplementation with  5-HTP:

  • improves mood;
  • leads to calm and confidence;
  • which in turn induce relaxation and improves sleep quality;
  • reduces or eliminates the headaches caused by stress and / or depression;
