5-HTP——Natural Medicine for The Treatment of Depression
Jul 26, 2017

1.what is the 5-htp?

5-HTP comes from the beans of Griffonia Seed, a vine native to Africa. In African folk medicine, Griffonia Seed is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, as well as an antibiotic and a remedy for diarrhea, vomiting, and stomachache. Recent research suggests that Griffonia Seed raises serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is important in regulating brain chemistry and is especially important in problems such as treatment of depression, treatment of insomnia, and treatment of eating disorders. Theoretically, supplementing with Griffonia Seed Extract can raise serotonin levels and provide relief from depression and insomnia.
Griffonia Seed should also regulate appetite through the increase in serotonin, leading to weight reduction in obese persons, while helping normalize the weight of people suffering from anorexia nervosa. Griffonia Seed Extract has also been used in treating fibromyalgia and chronic headaches in order to reduce pain.

2.The best of the natural matter is 5-hydroxytryptophan for depression.


5-HTP is a pure natural herbal prescription with a sedative effect. It is a precursor to the serotonin in the human body that can help the body to produce a balance in the body. 5-HTP is Tryptophan, a complex amine of the reaction medium, that is, serotonin is an important inhibitor of neurotransmitter complex amine (5-HT) precursors.

5-HTP is the substance used in your body to make serotonin, and serotonin is the most important of neurotransmitters (substances that transmit information within the brain). Although the etiology of depression is complex, but the neurotransmitter, especially serotonin in the status of depression is already recognized. Low levels of serotonin can lead to the emergence of many negative emotions, such as craving, anxiety, coercion, aggression and depression.

Low levels of serotonin can lead to depression.

Serotonin, also known as "happy neurotransmitter", is justified. If it is not enough, we will feel uncomfortable. The most popular antidepressants - Prozac, Zoloft, Seletta - are all selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). These substances are worthy of the name: they do not let the health staff to clear the seroton from the brain out, so serotonin can be there to stay longer. The more serotonin, the happier it is.

5-HTP how? Your body produces serotonin with an amino acid called leucine tryptophan. This amino acid can be taken by turkey or seafood. Then our body converts this amino acid into a metabolite called 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and with the help of Vitamin B6, the body turns it into serotonin (5-HT) Also known as serotonin.

5-HTP also seems to have a good effect on fibromyalgia. In one study, 300 mg of 5-HTP daily relieves many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, including pain, morning stiffness, sleep disorders and anxiety. 100 mg of 5-HTP at night, can improve the length and depth of sleep.

5-HTP may also play an important role in weight loss, because it can improve or eliminate the desire for carbohydrates. By adjusting the serum cord in the brain, it can effectively inhibit the animal's eating behavior. Human experiments found that 5-HTP inhibition of eating is also effective for people, which can reduce the heat of the photo, so that obese human weight lighter. 600 to 900 mg of 5-HTP daily can cause loss of appetite and weight loss (an average of 11 pounds per 12 weeks.)
