5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) supplements are sourced from wild crafted seeds of the plant Griffonia simplicifolia - native to Central and West Africa. 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter important for healthy sleep wake cycles and moods. 5-HTP may support levels of serotonin in the body.
Many aspects of our health are influenced by serotonin, including our digestive tract, sleep-wake cycle, appetite, sex drive, mood, and many other areas, which are being researched.
5-HTP may be beneficial to many but does come with precautions. As well as discussing whether 5-HTP is right for you with a health practitioner, we encourage low doses to begin with (50mg). Find out more in a blog we wrote here.
Clinical studies comparing 5-HTP with prescription antidepressants have shown identical results using the standard depression scale with human study groups.
Other studies have demonstrated the benefits of 5-HTP supplementation in cases of anxiety, panic disorder, sleep difficulties, and obesity/weight loss problems. Some cases of tinnitus may also benefit.
5-HTP Side Effects
Temporary digestive upsets can occur if 5-HTP is not taken with food.
Vivid dreams or nightmares can happen while the body adjusts to higher serotonin levels initially.
Contraindicated for children, pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and those with cardiovascular, kidney or liver disease.
People taking medication for Parkinson’s disease, on SSRI drugs (e.g. Prozac) or any of the group of MAOI antidepressants should not supplement 5-HTP as well. Check with your doctor if you’re not sure what class of medication you’re taking.
Love these capsules, i have a better sleep and much less anxiety.
Great product - worked for us
My partner has suffered from sleep problems for a long time and we've tried a few different products but this is the one that's helped him most. He's finding it easier to fall asleep and doesn't get up as frequently at night. Am so thankful we found Deep Sleep!
I had been on gentle medication for sleep for a couple of years, but it still left me hung over. This has helped me stop the medication completely, and some nights I don't even need to take it. Amazing product.
