What does the research say?

 

  • 5-HTP, (5- Hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally occurring amino acid, a precursor and metabolic intermediate to serotonin, the “happiness” neurotransmitter and the “sleep” hormone Melatonin, both of which are essential to normal and healthy brain function
  • "5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin, therefore Serotonin may affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation"
  • "Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions"

    Tryptophan is an essential amino acid. It is considered essential because the human body cannot produce it on its own, and it must be consumed through the diet. Many high protein foods have Tryptophan in them, including red meat, poultry, dairy, nuts, beans, tofu, seeds, and oats

    Sometimes dietary Tryptophan intake is lacking, and some people naturally utilize the Tryptophan they do eat inefficiently. In these cases, supplementation may be useful

    When Tryptophan either from the diet or supplements is ingested, it is broken down in the liver into the compound 5-Hydroxytryptophan and other metabolites. 

    Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which governs easy nerve cell communication. In addition to this function, Serotonin generates a variety of emotional cues. It famously produces a calming sensation which can override stress triggers and soothe anxious thoughts and nervousness. Serotonin accompanies positive feeling and a relaxed, satisfied mood.

    L-tryptophan is also directly related to the production of Melatonin. Melatonin is the main hormone which is responsible for regulating circadian rhythm ( healthy sleep/wake cycles in the body). Serotonin in the brain is converted into Melatonin. During the day Serotonin production is highest, and production of Melatonin is low. When light levels fall at dusk, the body begins converting Serotonin to Melatonin at a faster rate; rising Melatonin levels helps prepare the body for deep, restorative sleep.

    Prior to taking any supplement, it is recommended that you consult your physician and also do your own research.

    The above information merely details the role that L-tryptophan, 5-HTP, and Melatonin plays in the body, we by no means make the claim that this supplement has this effect. We make no therapeutic claims.

    The above statements merely establish what research has stated 5-HTP's role is in the body, we do not assert any therapeutic claim that our product influences the body.
