Lorna Vanderhaeghe Smile 5-HTP Benefits

5-HTP Enhances Serotonin

5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfi ed so that you do not need to eat anymore. Serotonin defi ciency contributes to weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and panic attacks. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate (sugar) cravings and overeating. 5-HTP reduces appetite while also enhancing mood and increasing energy levels.

5-HTP Improves Mood and Sleep

5-HTP has been extensively researched for the treatment of mood enhancement. It also relieves insomnia. 5-HTP allows for natural sleep without the drugged feeling in the morning that can occur in those taking prescription sedatives.

5-HTP Aids Weight Loss

Weight management is another benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP. One well controlled trial using 900 mg a day of 5-HTP in 20 obese individuals found that, during the first 6 weeks of the study where participants ate their usual diet and during the following 7-12 weeks where they dieted, a significant weight loss in the 5-HTP group occurred but not in those taking a placebo.

5-HTP Improves Fibryomyalgia Symptoms

There is evidence that the body's serotonin pathway does not work in people with fi bromyalgia, and 5-HTP has been shown to stop the pain of fi bromyalgia. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 90-day study involving 50 patients with fi bromyalgia, 5-HTP was found to significantly improve anxiety, pain intensity, quality of sleep and fatigue.

SMILE 5-HTP: A Superior Solution Smile 5-HTP is enteric-coated, which allows 5-HTP to be absorbed in the small intestine. Other 5-HTP products that are not enteric-coated can cause nausea when optimal doses are taken. Take a high-quality multivitamin with minerals like Multismart to ensure you get adequate levels of magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin B3 because these nutrients aid 5-HTP conversion into serotonin.
