What 5-HTP health supplements can do for you

Some people who take 5-HTP notice improved mood, decrease in appetite, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. Some individuals get wired instead of sleepy when taking 5-HTP.  
 
Some find that 5-HTP helps curb appetite and leads to weight loss. This nutrient could be used temporarily for appetite suppression while other lifestyle and dietary changes are being incorporated regarding a life long plan for keeping weight off. Not everyone notices the appetite suppressing effect from 5-HTP.

  • 5-HTP may be temporarily helpful in conditions that normally require prescription antidepressants, anti-anxiety agents, sleeping pills, and weight loss drugs.  
  • 5-HTP may also be helpful in some individuals with migraine headaches and fibromyalgia.
  • 5-HTP reduces the severity of a panic attack which may indicate that panic attacks may be due to low serotonin levels.

A study in rodents indicates that 5-HTP may be useful in controlling the excessive food intake sometimes generated by stress, even if given without decarboxylase inhibitors or other drugs.
