Fight Depression with 5HTP
Some symptoms of depression include overeating, feeling like you can’t be bothered, poor sleep or maybe you just get irritable ?
5HTP helps elevate your mood. For years it has been known that the natural Amino Acid (5htp) is helpful in elevating your mood, therefore helping with mild to moderate depression.
Deficiencies in brain Serotonin levels can disrupt the patterns of neural activity that govern these conditions. Serotonin deficiencies are most commonly caused by stress and ageing and can lead to depression, anxiety, irritability and abusive behaviour. It can also cause insomnia and headaches.
5HTP can supplement this. Serotonin, which is produced naturally in our bloodstream and our brain from the dietary Amino Acid Tryptophan is not found in our food but it is extracted from the African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia.
5HTP and Weight Loss
The herbal product ephedra induces fat loss through a mechanism called thermogenesis (fat burning), and white willow bark and caffeine act synergistically with ephedra.
It is believed that genetically induced serotonin deficiency is another common factor in obesity. 5-HTP, well known for its use in serotonin deficiency syndrome, is recognized as a natural carbohydrate appetite satisfier. It is readily converted into serotonin in the brain, which in turn causes the release of cholecystokinin, the satiety hormone. So, 5-HTP, ephedra, and white willow bark together are likely to effect weight loss via two different mechanisms: fat burning and appetite satisfaction.
Since 5-HTP has relaxing or calming effects, many users report that it helps offset the stimulatory effects of the other agents.
Caution: Do not exceed the recommended dose.
5HTP should not be used alongside antidepressant medications.
