5-HTP is a direct precursor to serotonin and boosts serotinin levels naturally. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that is responsible for a happy mood. The more serotonin in your bloodstream, the happier you will be. 5-HTP is derived from the seeds of the Griffonia Simplicifolia, a West African medicinal plant.
BioSynergy 5-HTP supplement is made from the highest quality raw materials with guarateed potency.

Actual Study: 5-HTP vs. SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor’s. Pharmeceutical depression medication)
Dr. W. Poldinger of the Psychiatrische Universitatsklinik in Basel, Switzerland conducted a double blind, multi-center controlled study.
He used patients clinically diagnosed with depression. Dr. Poldinger found that after week 6, both the patients taking 100 mg of 5-HTP 3 times per day, and those taking 150 mg fluvoxamine (an SSRI) 3 times per day, had equal numbers showing about 50% improvement.
But, 5-HTP proved to be better tolerated (less side effects) than the SSRI. And, 5-HTP had about an 11% lower failure rate than the SSRI group.

*Note: If you are taking an SSRI or antidepressant, check with your health-care provider before taking 5-HTP or L-Tryptophan.
According to University of Mississippi researcher Ronald F. Bore, Ph.D., in his article: Serotonin: The Neurotransmitter for the 90’s. Drug Topics. 1994, serotonin is “The Neurotransmitter of the 90s’”
Dr. Bore also states: “Of the chemical neurotransmitter substances, serotonin is perhaps the most implicated in the etiology or treatment of various disorders, particularly those of the central nervous system including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, stroke, obesity, pain, hypertension, vascular disorders, migraine, and nausea.”
A Lonely Hearts Supplement?
The mood-regulating supplement L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) may ease the pain of a broken heart, Italian researchers say. When frustrated lovers took 60 milligrams of 5-HTP a day for 3 weeks, they rated their relationship anxiety as less severe. As a precursor to serotonin, 5-HTP may help reverse chemical changes in the brain caused by romantic stress…

5-HTP or L-Tryptophan, which is likely to help you more?
There is no clear winner because everyone’s biochemistry is different. Some people report getting better sleep and other benefits when taking L-Tryptophan and for others, 5-HTP works best. Experience is the only answer. Experiment and let your own experience reveal which one works best for you.
Note: Use either 5-HTP or L-Tryptophan, not both.
5-HTP can be combined with melatonin, GABA, and/or L-theanine to help you destress and wind down for a good night sleep.
