What are the benefits of 5-HTP powder?

5-HTP is involved in the production of serotonin.It’s thought regulating the amount of serotonin in our system may have an impact on many conditions, including:

  • Depression

The evidence for 5-HTP’s ability to tackle depression is still unclear, but some studies have found it to have a positive effect.

For example, a 2013 trial of 70 patients, who were experiencing their first episode of depression, concluded 5-HTP did have an ‘antidepressant effect’ on the subjects.

  • Migraines

It’s still not known exactly what causes migraines, but one theory is they’re triggered by changes in serotonin levels within the brain.

This has led to some researchers studying the effects of 5-HTP on migraines – according to one classic study published in European Neurology in 1986, migraineurs who took 5-HTP experienced reduced severity and duration of attacks.

  • Weight maintenance

One 1998 study involving 20 people found that people who were taking 5-HTP consumed fewer calories from carbohydrates and fat than those taking a placebo.

In a more recent 2016 trial, researchers from Brunel University backed up these findings.

Using brain imaging scans, their study suggested 5-HTP alters our brain activity when we look at food, shifting our focus away from high-calorie and high-carbohydrate foods, and towards healthier and higher protein foods.

  • Anxiety

It’s believed taking 5-HTP may help ease anxiety. However, more research is required to prove this.

Early studies have found that taking 25 to 150 mg of 5-HTP a day, alongside carbidopa, appears to reduce anxiety symptoms.

However, other early research has shown taking higher doses of 5-HTP, 225mg a day or more, may make anxiety worse.

More research into the link between 5-HTP and anxiety is therefore required.

  • Sleep

5-HTP produces serotonin, which can be converted into the hormone, melatonin.

It’s this particular hormone that helps regulate our sleep and, because of this, it’s thought that taking 5-HTP for sleep can potentially increase how much melatonin our bodies produce.

  • Fibromyalgia

Studies have also found that 5-HTP can have a positive effect on fibromyalgia.

This is due to the fact low serotonin levels have been linked to potentially contributing to the condition, which causes muscle and bone pain and weakness.

Initial studies have found 5-HTP may improve symptoms of fibromyalgia due to its ability to increase serotonin levels.

How do I take 5-HTP powder?

For depression, weight loss, headache, and fibromyalgia, the dosage should start at 50mg three times a day. If the desired effect does not appear after two weeks, you should increase the dose to 100mg three times a day.

Since 5-HTP does not require the same transportation methods as L-tryptophan, it can be taken with meals. If you are taking 5-HTP for weight loss, it should be taken 20 minutes before a meal.

For insomnia, we recommend taking 100 to 300mg about 30-45 minutes before bed. Start with the lower dose for at least three days before increasing the dose.

Is it safe to take 5-HTP everyday?

5-HTP seems to be well tolerated as there are few and relatively minor side effects, of which nausea is the most common. However, very high doses of 5-HTP should be avoided as these can lead to extremely high serotonin levels, which has negative effects.

What does five 5-HTP do for you?

5-HTP dietary supplements help raise serotonin levels in the brain. Since serotonin helps regulate mood and behavior, 5-H may have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, appetite, and pain sensation. 5-H is not found in the foods we eat, although tryptophan is found in foods.

Is there a downside to taking 5-HTP?

Too much 5-H  in your body can cause a spike in serotonin levels, resulting in side effects such as: anxiety. shivering. serious heart problems.

Does 5-HTP make you sleepy?

5-H may promote sleep by increasing melatonin production, an important sleep-regulating hormone.

Should you take 5-HTP everyday?

There is no specific recommended daily allowance for 5-H. Most people will take 50–100 mg per day after starting at a lower dose of 25 mg and increasing the dose weekly. A person should read their supplement label and talk to a doctor before taking any supplement.

Does 5-HTP make you gain weight?

Known for its ability to promote weight loss, 5-H has been shown to reduce appetite. It appears to do this by stimulating serotonin production in the brain. While 5-H has not yet been extensively researched, some human and double-blind studies have shown that 5-H promotes weight loss.

Can 5-HTP be harmful?

Side effects of 5-H are generally mild and may include nausea, heartburn, gas, feelings of fullness, and rumbling sensations in some people. At high doses, serotonin syndrome, a dangerous condition caused by too much serotonin in the body, could develop.

Does 5-HTP have long term effects?

The most significant side effects and adverse reactions may occur with long-term use (many months or longer). Administration of 5-HTP alone depletes catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine). When dopamine depletion is great enough, 5-H will no longer function.
