“5-HTP Works Wonders For Anxiety & Depression. But Hold Off on Taking It Until You See This Doctor’s Report With Tips to Avoid Scams & Insider Secrets To Sure-Fire Relief”
5-HTP (Griffonia Simplicifolia):
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and is the final step in the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, an important chemical that’s responsible for many of the brain impulses involving satisfaction and well being. 5-HTP is created through the hydroxylating of Tryptophan.
The body produces its own supply of 5-HTP from tryptophan, an amino acid found in high-protein foods such as chicken, fish, beef, and dairy products. Any healthy diet should include tryptophan-rich sources such as these.
In addition, 5-HTP is available as a supplement; this form of the compound is extracted from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. Europeans have been taking 5-HTP for decades to treat insomnia, anxiety and depression.
How It Works
The diagram illustrates, simply, that 5-HTP is a more immediate precursor to serotonin than tryptophan is. This means 5-HTP is more directly linked to the production of serotonin than is tryptophan.
So How Effective Is 5-HTP For Anxiety & Depression?
Numerous clinical trials have studied the efficacy of 5-HTP for treating Anxiety & Depression. One compared 5-HTP to the antidepressant drug fluvoxamine and found 5-HTP to be equally effective.1 Researchers used the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale and a self-assessment scale to gauge the effectiveness of the two medications. Both scales revealed a gradual reduction in Anxiety & Depression symptoms through time with both medications.
Perhaps the most convincing evidence, however, comes from scientists who examined research from around the world on the use of 5-HTP in treating Anxiety & Depression. One such researcher, writing in Neuropsychobiology, sums up the findings this way: “Of the 17 reviewed studies, 15 confirm that 5-HTP has works and is completely SAFE!”
Other Benefits …
Researchers looking for other applications for 5-HTP found positive results in fibromyalgia treatment,6 weight loss in obese individuals7 and a reduction in occurrence of migraine headaches.8 Because so many conditions may be affected by serotonin function, it is not surprising to see such a wide range of therapeutic possibilities for 5-HTP.
Any Negative Side-Effects?…
It appears that 5-HTP may be one of the most helpful natural substances to be discovered in recent years. But, research has also shown that higher dosages (especially when used by itself) only ends up causing an individual to be tired and “life-less”. So, simply buying any 5-HTP product at your local health food store or online, may cause you to be TIRED all the time and feel “blah”.
So, What’s YOUR Best Solution?…
I’ll be honest with you. No single ingredient works at 100% effectiveness forever, let alone for every person. And that includes 5-HTP or any other single herb or nutrient.
Think about it. Just like you don’t eat only broccoli for best health, you don’t want to use only one herb or nutrient either.
The best products use 5-HTP, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to dramatically help with Anxiety & Depression. Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a product, which also work in synergy with 5-HTP are:
When combined with the above ingredients, it creates a “synergy” where you get MORE positive effects, at a much LOWER dose. That’s the secret!…
