Linnea Nuova Swiss Pharmaceutical Company manufactures our 5-HTP.
Now, scientists have discovered that depression,
anxiety, and sleeplessness are all related to a deficiency of the neurotransmitter
serotonin (5-hydroxy-tryptophan, 5-HTP) in the brain. Restore the serotonin, and your mood
improves, anxiety melts away, and you sleep restfully through the night.
Other symptoms of serotonin deficiency can include: carbohydrate cravings, migraines, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and other behavioral disorders.
Natural Sleep Aid
Depressed levels of serotonin are also associated with sleep problems, low threshold for pain, and anxiety. Tryptophan was used by millions around the world for this purpose. We can now increase serotonin levels by supplying more of the the raw materials for manufacturing of serotonin, namely L-tryptophan and 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) which the body uses to make 5-Hydroxy Tryptamine, also known as serotonin.
Natural Anti-depressant and 5-Hydroxy L- Tryptophan
Depression results, in part, from the lack of serotonin, a brain nuerotransmitter. The leading antidepressants are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. By blocking the reuptake of serotonin, they increase the serotonin available to stimulate serotonin receptors. These include Prozac¨, Zoloft¨, Paxil¨, and Effexor¨. While they may be very effective for the treatment of depression, they are not without side effects, including the loss of sex drive. I would think it pretty depressing if you lost your sex drive? They are also expensive, and only available by prescription.
Studies indicate that 5-HTP, a serotonin precursor, may even work better for depression than tryptophan. Beta endorphins, the Òfeel-goodÓ hormones, were also significantly elevated after consumption of 200 mg of 5-HTP by patients with severe depression.
It should be noted that 5-HTP cannot be taken at the same time as the listed anti-depressents (or others), because they work in the same way. Check with your doctor to determine if 5-HTP is for you.
Natural Weight-loss Aid and 5-Hydroxy L- Tryptophan
Weight loss products such as Redux and Fenfluramine of the popular Phen-Fen diet work by the same serotonin reuptake inhibiting mechanism increasing the serotonin levels. Beta endorphins seem to fool people into feeling fuller, therefore, individuals eat less and lose weight. (Not to be used if you are currently taking Redux, Fenfluramine or Phen-Fen.) If you are unhappy with the results or side effects of your current diet program, 5-HTP may be an effective alternative for you!
