What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP by Solgar is a supplement that provides 5-Hydroxytryphophan from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract, also known as 5-HTP, which is the direct precursor of serotonin, a chemical messenger within the body, which is involved in our state of mind and appetite regulation.
What are the properties of 5-HTP?
5-HTP is directly coverted to serotonin in the brain. This chemical substance controls a series of actions that affect our personal behaviour and mood, such as:
- Sleep quality
- Appetite control
- Learning and memory process
- Sexual behavior
- Cardiovascular function
- Muscle contraction
- Endocrine system
When there is a problem in the production of serotonin this is the conditioning factor that will produce the adverse imbalance of the previous points, subsequently this can cause to manifest severe pathologies such as depression, anxiety or insomnia, drastically reducing life quality.
Why is the production of Serotonin reduced? One of the main reasons is the pass of the time.Along with this another critical factor is being subjected to stress situations on a continual basis, due to commitments, a work situation or our day to day having to fulfil many tasks and duties.
This fact may make the secretion of serotonin slowly reduce, having a 'snowball effect': the stress generates a bad mood, this state of mind will cause a decrease in sleep quality, the lack or rest will subsequently provoke depressive states.
Who can take this 5-HTP supplement?
Anyone who needs to naturally restore their serotonin levels as a result of suffering a situation of stress, to be able to deal with it, and prevent it from affecting their personal life, and above all, their quality of life and health.
