5-HTP (100mg) Overview

What is 5-HTP? 5-HTP is an herbal supplement, derived from the herb Griffonia simplicifolia. In the body, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) gets converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin has an enormous influence on how we feel physically and mentally, but since serotonin can't be supplemented directly, people use 5-HTP for help with a wide range of conditions related to low serotonin levels, primarily appetite regulation, poor mood, and poor sleep patterns. NOW Foods is a best-selling brand of 5-HTP which is available in 50 and 100 mg. potencies.

5-HTP (100mg) Description from Now
5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).

Great product for those suffering depression due to a low serotonin level.

I was on anti-depression medications for 30 years, always trying to discontinue them. I tried many natural remedies and nothing worked for me until I tried Now 5-http. I started lowering my meds and taking Now 5-http 50 mg capsules. I had varying degrees of success trying to find my proper dose as I lowered my medication and raised the dose of 5-http. I am now off of all depression meds and taking 1 50 mg. tablet twice a day. Depending on the stress in my life I had to up the 5-http at certain times and slowly lowered it as I began to feel better. These periods of stress were caused by the death of my wife and my daughter one year apart. It seems that stress definitely inhibited the production of serotonin in my brain and at those times I had to increase the 5-http for short periods. I am 79 years of age and now I am able to go to the gym for strenuous workouts 6 to 7 times a month. I had tried working out previously when I was not aware of 5-http but the endorphins were only short lived and I could not continue. If you find yourself seriously depressed even when you take synthetic medications I urge you to give it a try. Start with 5-http, adhere to a healthy diet, exercise, develop a positive mental attitude and anything can happen. It did for me at 79 years of age and I'm enjoying my life as I have never been able to do before. If you have tried everything else and nothing has worked, give it a shot...you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Blessings to all. https://www.facebook.com/tom.hackett.sr

Sleep

One of these with 5 mg of Melatonin should cure your jet lag. Melatonin alone takes me a couple of days to acclimate to a new schedule.

Helps me be nice

I know I dont have a proper diet, I take this to help me be nice at work. Seems to really help me not get stressed out when I get over loaded with work. I take it at night, and the next day it seems like stress does not affect me. Id recommend this to anyone that has to deal with stress.
