It is believed that our current lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits reduce the serotonin levels of the organism. Low serotonin levels are related to depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or aggressive behavior. There are natural products that can improve these situations for our health that you can purchase at our online store.

5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) is a nutritional supplement (which normally comes from Griffonia Simplicifolia) that can help to increase the serotonin levels in the organism. It is a natural and safe supplement that is tolerated by most people. We can find it in capsule format most of the time, like the 5-HTP by HSNessentials that is available at our online store.

5-HTP is commonly used as a natural remedy for obesity (diet), premenstrual syndrome, migraines, depression, stress, anxiety, sleep problems, and addictions.

Benefits of 5-HTP for health

5-HTP provides several benefits for our health:

  • Relieving the symptoms of depression
  • Calming effect
  • Reducing the symptoms of fibromyalgia
  • Support for weight-loss diets
  • Improving the quality of sleep at night
  • Relieving of the feeling of anxiety
  • Increasing the serotonin synthesis

Does 5-HTP relieve the symptoms of depression?

5-HTP, from griffonia extract, helps to calm the symptoms of depression. This happens because 5-HTP increases the concentration of serotonin in the brain, which produces several benefits for our health as well as a good mood.

Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP products (capsules) have many properties for our health and particularly for depression. 15 different studies showed that more than half of the patients with depression improved significantly after taking 5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) products (capsules) for 2-4 weeks.

These are the most common symptoms of depression:

  • Helplessness and lack of motivation
  • Anxiety, fears
  • Difficulty to fall asleep or to stay asleep
  • Loss of interest in normal activities or that used to be pleasant before
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fast or abnormal weight loss or gain
  • Mood swings (anger, fear)
  • Change of behavior

Other studies have shown that 5-HTP can be as effective as conventional anti-depression therapies with fluvoxamine (SSRI) or tricyclic antidepressants like clomipramine or imipramine.

5-HTP and sleep

5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) is the most effective natural product to fight insomnia and it significantly improves the quality of sleep by prolonging the REM sleep phase, which is a basic component for our rest and health.

A better quality of sleep means an improved quality of life, better mood, well-being, appetite control, more memory, personal motivation, longevity, as well as lower chance of suffering diseases.

Who can benefit from 5-HTP?

Taking 5-HTP, either capsules or other formats, is useful in the following cases:

  • If you suffer the symptoms of depression
  • If you are prone to suffer depression episodes
  • If you are having difficulty to sleep
  • If you are usually in a bad mood
  • If you are looking for a natural way to control the feeling of anxiety and panic
  • If you suffer one of the symptoms of fibromyalgia
  • If you are looking for a natural remedy to control your weight

Combinations with 5-HTP

5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) products tend to contain a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs to enhance its effects, providing serotonin to the body:
