TriMedica - 5-HTP 50 mg 60 Capsules
TriMedica 5-HTP (5-hydroxy L-tryptophan) is a naturally occurring metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. 5-HTP is converted in the brain to serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance found at the junctions (synapses) between neurons. 5-HTP helps maintain mental and emotional well-being and promotes healthy sleep.
Researchers have discovered that many of us suffer from a common, but little-known deficiency of the brain chemical serotonin. Serotonin deficiencies can result in symptoms such as mood disorders, depression, weight problems and migraine headaches. Studies show that you can increase serotonin availability by taking supplements of serotonin’s metabolic precursor 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). 5-HTP, which is an important precursor on the metabolic pathway to serotonin, is available for use as a supplement and has actually proven to be extremely effective in clinical trials.
Weight Loss Support
An Italian study conducted on 20 obese patients, showed that the patients, taking larger doses of 5-HTP experienced a significant weight loss, had less carbohydrate intake and consistently ate less than the placebo group. The study concluded that 5-HTP was well tolerated and could be safely used for weight loss (Cangiano, et al., Am Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 1992).
A Spanish study showed 71% improvement in migraine sufferers, while Italian researchers confirmed a 90% improvement in headache severity, frequency and duration with 400 mg/day of 5-HTP for a period of 2 months (Dr. Benedittis, et al., Clinical Journal of Pain, 1986).
