Benefits of 5htp Supplementation
5-htp plays an important role in the production of serotonin and is derived from an amino acid called tryptophan. Low levels of serotonin have been linked to many ailments, including overeating, depression and poor sleeping. Regular 5-HTP supplementation can increase serotonin levels to help alleviate these health conditions.
European Research Supports 5htp Supplementation
A number of small studies, mostly conducted in Europe, indicate that for some people, 5-HTP may effectively lift mood and reduce muscle and joint tenderness. Others studies further suggest that a single dose at bedtime may promote two key sleep stages, deep sleep and Rapid Eye Movement or REM sleep, helping troubled sleepers wake up feeling refreshed.
