### TRANSCRIPT ### 5HTP is commonly used to help provide relief against anxiety and helps you sleep better.
Produced from the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia 5-HTP increases the production of brain chemical called serotonin.
Serotonin is a “feel-good” chemical which regulates sleep and mood. It can help you feel happier, focused and positive.
Benefits of consuming 5-HTP
1 – Improved Sleep
5-HTP helps the body produce more serotonin, which affects how you sleep
Better sleep and serotonin can help reudce anxiety and improve alertness, which are some of the other benefits of 5-HTP.
2 – Can help you lose weight
Supplementation of 5-HTP causes your brain to desire healthier, more protein rich foods.
The increased production of serotonin can help reduce your cravings for carbs
Consuming anywhere from 50-100mg per day should be a good start to help control your cravings for carbs.
3 – Helps with mental wellbeing
Anxiety is a common issue, and is a bodily response to stress, whether mental or physical.
There are many articles outlining the fact that taking 5-HTP can help reduce anxiety and depression.
This is usually attributable to the elevated levels of serotonin produced which can help calm your mind and your nerves.
Because Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, and relays signals between nerve cells – sending messages between cells and through your nervous system regulating their behaviour.
That’s it! Those are our top 3 benefit of taking 5-htp supplements.
