What is 5-HTP?
Feeling vital and alive by enjoying everyday pleasures are easier when your body works with you to produce the feeling of happiness. For more than 30 years, the natural dietary supplement 5-Hydroxytryptophan, better known as 5-HTP has been encouraging the body's ability to feel good. HTP is an extract of Griffonia simplicifolia seeds from coastal West Africa and has been used clinically for more than 30 years for its ability to increase production of serotonin, which is very important to all of the body’s systems.
According to medical journals and reviews it is proven that 5-HTP helps improve moods of depressed patients and may aid in weight loss, improve sleep patterns and help panic attacks. Serotonin is created naturally in the brain and is what creates our "happy" emotions and feelings.
What is serotonin?
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter. This means it is the chemical link between brain cell neurones and is a vital chemical in how different parts of the brain communicate with each other. Serotonin deficiency has been implicated in mood disorders, appetite control, premenstrual syndrome, autism, eating disorders, fibromyalgia, appetite control, the pain phase of migraine, and other conditions and disorders. Some serotonin is converted by our pineal gland into melatonin, the hormone that controls our sleep cycle. Thus, serotonin deficiency is also linked to insomnia and other sleep disorders.

5 HTP Dosages and Precautions:
Dosages for 5-HTP range from 50 mg to 500 mg, depending on its intended use. Any dosage beyond 100 mg daily should be on the advice of a physician. While at times 5-HTP may be used alongside other antidepressants, unless a doctor advises using both, it's best not to mix the supplement with prescription drugs or other herbal remedies because of 5-HTP's tendency to intensify the drugs' effects. Pregnant and nursing women are cautioned against using 5-HTP as well as patients under care for cardiovascular and kidney conditions, ulcers and cancer. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place, below 30C.
5 HTP Side Effects:
In most cases, 5-HTP is well tolerated, although side effects from taking the dietary supplement are possible. Symptoms of side effects include nausea, breathing difficulties and vomiting. Some users, looking for a rapid response by purposely taking more of the supplement than necessary or recommended, may suffer more serious symptoms including excessive heart rate and high blood pressure.
Avoiding the possibility of an an accidental overdose requires users to realize that serotonin buildup and mood-elevation are chemical occurrences that happen over time, not instantly. Doctors normally recommend starting with a low dosage and gradually increasing it to a level where it is most helpful to a patient.
