5-HTP (Central Nervous System) 150 Caps
5-HTP (CNS Support)
5-HTP is gluten and dairy free!
5-HTP is for those who have stressful or fast-paced lifestyles, compounded by the grossly inferior Standard American Diet (SAD). These have resulted in widespread neurotransmitter imbalances which may often manifest as altered mood, sleep disturbances, carbohydrate cravings or weight gain, focal or diffuse muscle pain, and headaches.
Tryptophan assimilated into the body is metabolized to the amino acid 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) which is the precursor to the synthesis of 5-hydroxytryptamine, which along with dopamine and norepinephrine, are the three main monoamine neurotransmitters.
Commonly referred to as the “feel good” neurotransmitter, it has been established that higher serotonin levels reduce carbohydrate cravings and hunger levels in general.
In several weight loss studies it was noted that participants with 5-HTP supplementation were afforded weight loss in excess of one pound per week with almost total elimination of the irritability and excess hunger that can plague dieters.
Serotonin levels should be a consideration for those with depression, obesity, carbohydrate sensitivity, fibromyalgia, ADHD, migraine headaches & insomnia.
Neuro-5-HTP Plus™ combines 5-HTP along with 10 mg of B6 phosphate, 50 mg of niacinamide and 50 mg of the neurologically active amino acid L-theanine. These additional ingredients are present to facilitate the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin with L-theanine increasing alpha waves in the brain and impacting serotonin and/or dopamine neurotransmitters related to memory and learning.
The most commonly reported side effect experienced with 5-HTP is nausea, and this can be avoided by initially using a lesser amount and slowly working up to the dose required.
