Lorna Vanderhaeghe Smile 5-HTP 100 mg 

 

5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfied so that you do not need to eat anymore.

Serotonin deficiency contributes to weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and panic attacks. Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate, sugar cravings and overeating. 5-HTP reduces appetite while also enhancing mood and increasing energy levels. 5-HTP has been extensively researched for the treatment of mood enhancement. It also relieves insomnia. 5-HTP allows for natural sleep without the drugged feeling in the morning that can occur in those taking prescription sedatives. Weight management is another benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP.

Definitely Helped With Sleep

Bought this because I got Seasonal Affective Disorder pretty bad in the winter and I wanted something that would help my mood. The first few days of taking it I had some stomach upset, but once my body got used to it it subsided.

Some reviewers on other 5-HTP products said that it gave them stomach upset, too, but others didn’t, and if it did, it eventually subsided. The directions for this supplement says to take it on an empty stomach before eating, but some other products say to take it with food. Maybe taking it with food would prevent the stomach upset and other temporary side effects? I don’t.

Smile 5-HTP did it’s job for me though. It helped me get a restful night’s sleep and I woke up feeling a lot more rested and happier than before. I would definitely repurchase if I’m feeling the SAD coming on in the fall and winter seasons.
