5-HTP is a supplement that can help with sleep, mood, PMS, and may encourage emotional well-being and enhanced mood. 5 HTP works to promote the production of serotonin in the central nervous system‚ which interacts with the brain to stabilize disposition and support normal sleep cycles. Additionally‚ it may help relieve symptoms related to mild anxiety and stress.
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).
