Natural Factor Happy Sense 5-Hydroxytryptophan Double Strength
HappySense 5-Hydroxytryptophan by Natural Factors
HappySense a well-being formula for every women, every day. HappySense supports mental and emotional well-being. Proteins in the food we eat provide us with amino acids. 5-HTP is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan which is broken down by vitamins, enzymes and other co-factors, into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is a key neurotransmitter in the brain. Serotonin deficiency may contribute to weight gain, depression, sleeplessness and other symptoms. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate cravings (sugar cravings) and overeating. By supporting normal sertonin levels in the brain, 5-HTP has been shown to reduce appetite, improve mood and sleep, and increase energy levels.*
5-HTP has been extensively researched for the treatment of mood enhancement. Supplementing your diet with it also curbs craving and decreases symptoms of insomnia and other sleeping disorders. 5-HTP allow for natural sleep without the drugged feeling in the morning which can occur while taking prescription sedatives.
Weight loss id another benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP. One small, but well-controlled trial using 900 mg a day of 5-HTP in 20 obese individuals during the first 6 weeks of the study where the participants were allowed to eat their usual diet and the following 7 to 12 weeks where they were placed on a diet, researchers found significant weight loss in the 5-HTP group but not in those taking a placebo or fake pill.
HappySense contains 5-HTP derived from the plant Griffonia simplicifolia
seed extract and is enteric coated. Other 5-HTP products can cause nausea when optimal doses are taken on an empty stomach. When 5-HTP is enteric coated no nausea when optimal doses are taken on an empty stomach. When 5-HTP is enteric coated no nausea occurs. Make sure that you take a multivitamin with minerals to ensure you get adequate levels of magnesium, vitamin B6 and niacin (vitamin B3) because these nutrients work to aid in the conversion of 5-HTP.
