5-HTP by Biotics Research - supplies L-5-Hydroxy-Tryptophan (5-HTP), the precursor to serotonin, a key neurotransmitter.
Caution: Very high doses of 5-HTP can be metabolized peripherally and can trigger excess serotonin formation. 5-HTP is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women and should be avoided by those with any form of cardiovascular disease. 5-HTP should not be used by those taking serotonin 5-HTP or receptor agonists (naratriptan, sumatriptan, zolmitriptan).
Some of the primary indications for 5-HTP may include:
- Deficiency of serotonin
- Sugar or starch craving
- Helps in suppressing appetite and weight loss
- Insomnia or non-refreshing sleep
- Irritability or aggressive behavior
- Anxiety or nervousness
- Excessive worrying
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
