5-HTP    
The natural plant extract that raises serotonin levels in the brain

 
Dr. Michael T. Murray
Michael T. Murray, N.D. is widely regarded as one of the world's leading authorities on natural medicine. He has written over 20 books including his latest book,
5-HTP: The Natural Way to Overcome Depression, Obesity, and Insomnia.
 

This is the most comprehensive guide to 5-hydroxy tryptophan (5-HTP)–an amino acid extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia plant–which is available without prescription and has been shown to be safer and more effective than prescription drugs in treating conditions associated with low levels of serotonin.Our stressful modern lifestyles wreak havoc on our health–we’re waging a constant battle to overcome the ill effects of poor diet, lack of exercise, and not enough rest. It may surprise you to learn that scientists have discovered that our stressful lifestyles not only affect our bodies but they adversely affect our brains, too. Specifically, stress, poor diet, and insufficient exercise cause our brains to produce low levels of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates our mood, appetite, and ability to get a good night’s sleep. When our brains aren’t producing enough serotonin, we may experience depression, suffer from obesity or insomnia, or otherwise function at less than our mental and physical peak.Scientists and researchers have finally come up with a ground breaking supplement that will safely and efficiently boost serotonin levels and reduce depression, obesity, insomnia, migraine headaches, and anxiety. That supplement is 5-HTP. Written by one of the leading naturopathic doctors in the U.S., 5-HTP tells you everything you need to know about this amazing supplement. Citing case histories, scientific studies, and all the available literature on the subject, Dr. Murray introduces us to a supplement that has been widely and effectively used throughout Europe for decades.

1. What is 5-HTP?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. There is a massive amount of evidence that suggests that low serotonin levels are a common consequence of modern living. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era results in lowered levels of serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain. All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain serotonin levels. The primary therapeutic applications for 5-HTP are low serotonin states as listed in Table 1.

Depression
Obesity
Carbohydrate craving
Bulimia
Insomnia
Narcolepsy

Although 5-HTP may be relatively new to the United States health food industry, it has been available through pharmacies for several years and has been intensely researched for the past three decades. It has been available in several European countries as a medicine since the 1970s.

“One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery.”
