Sources of 5-HTP and its Benefits to the Human Body

Mar 9th 2014 at 9:56 PM

5-Hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP is manufactured from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia and is used as a supplement. Used therapeutically, 5-HTP is often prescribed to be taken 3 times daily in 100mg to 300mg dosages and it offers the same effects as supplements that aid in weight loss, decreasing discomfort resulting from fibromyalgia, preventing migraine headaches, reducing anxiety, and improving overall sleep quality. Once the supplement starts to work in the body, it is possible for a user to reduce dosage and still maintain its benefits.

5-HTP cannot be found in the food we eat to any appreciable extent. Instead, it is produced as a by-product of L-tryptophan, a protein building block. Commercially, 5-HTP is produced using the seeds of the aforementioned African plant. To ensure the effectiveness and safety of the supplements you take, only buy your prescriptions from trusted manufacturers that specialize in neutraceuticals and similar types of health supplements. These companies use only the safest and bioavailable forms of herbal extracts, vitamins, and minerals to bring you the most effective preventive and supplementary health products.

5-HTP has a wide range of therapeutic uses apart from being an anti-depressant. Studies have found that 5-HTP can be used for related conditions such as anxiety and insomnia, being that standard antidepressants are also prescribed to relieve them. 5-HTP is also a suggested treatment for migraine headaches, as well as to ease symptoms of fibromyalgia, and probably even to help in weight loss. Studies are underway for its use as a potential treatment for various menopausal symptoms.

Serotonin, the vital brain chemical that 5-HTP regulates, controls a person's appetite, mood, and stress levels. Because of this, the supplement offers numerous benefits to the body including reduced stress and anxiety, reduced appetite and weight loss, improved sleep cycle, better brain function, improved mood, and increased energy levels.

It is best to take 5-HTP as prescribed by your physician. Because it is made from natural plant extracts, side effects are rare when taking the supplement. However, some users may experience minor nausea, which is a fairly common side effect of many food supplements. This side effect can be prevented by taking the supplement with some food during the first meal of the day and during lunch. Other than this, there no common health problems or side effects associated with taking 5-HTP.

There are lots of pharmaceutical companies who provide natural medicines and heath supplements on their online shop. Go online and find the best manufacturer for your need.
