Nutritional Supplement Recommended Intake:

One Nutri 5-HTP capsule daily or as professionally directed. Some people will find half a capsule sufficient.

  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan is the immediate precursor of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter regulating numerous important bodily functions, in particular brain and nerve function.

  • Approximately 70% of oral 5-HTP is converted to serotonin, compared with around 3% of L-tryptophan.

  • Serotonin may be converted in the body to melatonin, important in regulating the sleep-wake cycle.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-hydroxy-l-tryptophan) is a natural nutritional supplement that converts in the brain into serotonin.  

 

Serotonin is an important brain chemical involved in mood, behaviour, appetite, and sleep.  

 

Serotonin is known as 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptamine, and is found in many places in the body particularly the brain, gastrointestinal system, and blood cells.   

 

Benefits

This information gleaned from Ray Sahelian, M.D.
"Some people who take 5-HTP notice improved mood, decrease in appetite, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. I have come across some individuals who 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, antianxiety 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."

 

Each Nutri 5-HTP capsule typically contains:

50mg 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)
 

Encapsulated with: Cetyl alcohol, Kosher capsule shell (HPMC - hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose), Lecithin, Rice Flour, Silicon dioxide, Tricalcium phosphate.

 

Caution:

  • Safety of 5-HTP has not been established in pregnancy or breast-feeding.
  • Consult with a medical doctor if on antidepressant medication.
  • Short term side effects from high doses of 5-HTP include nausea and vomiting, stomach cramps, nightmares, and decreased sex drive. Serotonin has an inhibitory effect on sexual behaviour. Tiredness and sleepiness can occur after several days or weeks of use which may indicate that a break should be taken from 5-HTP use. For those who experience nightmares or other side effects such as nausea or decreased energy, you may consider taking a lower dose.
