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.

  • 8.9/10  Half a review....

    By Cheryl on Saturday, November 19, 2016 08:00 PM

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:8/10


    (+) Easy To Take,Good Value

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "After attending a Lorna Vanderhaeghe webinar I decided to try Adrenasmart. The hosts said to take 2 pills mid day with lunch or a snack and that would help me sleep better. I've had lifelong sleeping problems. Difficulty falling asleep or waking up in the middle of the night, often unable to fall back asleep or staying awake for hours. The first day I used the product I slept the night through. I've used this for several weeks and for the most part the product works well. If I wake up during the night I do not stay awake for hours.

    I bought this product in the 180 capsules size for convenience, this is a 3 month supply, and it also included a free bottle of Smile 5-HTP. I haven't tried this yet because I don't seem to have the symptoms that it assists with, other than the aids restless sleep. I'm trying to figure out the correct dosage before I begin taking it and so far the Lorna Vanderhaeghe people have not responded to me."

    "This product sadly did not work for me, but only because I had to stop taking it within a week of trying it. I experienced extreme nausea with this product. However I have to say that when I contacted Vitamart to tell them I was going to return the product, I received a prompt reply, with instructions on how to return the order. My order was sent back, and I was given a FULL refund, even though I had opened and used a week's worth of product! WONDERFUL customer service and EXCELLENT return policy! I continue to order other products from Vitamart and have recommended them to friends"

    How did you use it?:Before Bed

    "I started taking this product, combining it with melatonin to help my sleep. That was 2 months ago. My fitbit tells me I now enjoy 98% sleep efficiency. In other words, it works. For me, this is a perfect combination with melatonin needs for a good nights sleep. I'm over 60 and I know everyone is different but I do highly recommend this product."

    How did you use it?:Everyday,Every Morning

    "I have no way of knowing how this product affected me. I can say, however, that I do not feel depressed or unmotivated. But, having said that, I'm like that most of the time anyway. We have had an extremely long and harsh winter, and I was getting very house-bound. I thought this product, combined with Sleep Smart would help my insomnia, but NOT."

    Value:10/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value

    How did you use it?:Everyday,Between Meals,Every Morning

    "I have tried other brands of 5-HTP and have not had much luck with them. With Smile 5-HTP I have found that it works very well for me. I have had quite bad depression for years and have been put on medication by my doctor and it all wasn't doing enough for me. With taking the Smile 5-HTP with my medication I am not having so many bad days which is great.
    If anyone has some blues I would say give Smile 5-HTP a try."
