Lorna Vanderhaeghe Smile 5-HTP Benefits
5-HTP Enhances Serotonin
5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfied so that you do not need to eat anymore. Serotonin deficiency contributes to weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and panic attacks. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate (sugar) cravings and overeating. 5-HTP may reduce appetite while also enhancing mood and increasing energy levels.
5-HTP Improves Mood and Sleep
5-HTP has been used as a potential treatment of mood enhancement. It also may relieve insomnia.
5-HTP Aids Weight Loss
Weight management is another potential benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP.
SMILE 5-HTP: A Superior Solution
Smile 5-HTP is enteric-coated, which allows 5-HTP to be absorbed in the small intestine. Take a high-quality multivitamin with minerals like Multi-smart to ensure you get adequate levels of magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin B3 because these nutrients aid 5-HTP conversion into serotonin.
