Daily challenges and stress can affect your sleep and mood leaving you feeling run down and anxious. Research has shown that 5-HTP helps shorten the time it takes to fall asleep and increases the duration and quality of sleep.
How will 5-HTP Help?
5-HTP is naturally produced in our bodies. It is a well-researched nutrient with many studies supporting its use. Derived from the amino acid l-tryptophan, it is converted in our bodies into the neurotransmitter, serotonin, which influences sleep, appetite, and mood.
As we age, our 5-HTP levels decline, leading to low serotonin levels. Improving your 5-HTP levels has been shown to:
1. Aid Sleep: Serotonin is a vital component of melatonin, the hormone critical for sleep. Melatonin helps the body’s internal clock stay in sync and regulates the daily sleep-wake cycle which is the cornerstone of restful and rejuvenating sleep.
2. Improve Mood: Numerous scientific studies have shown that 5-HTP promotes relaxation and alleviates stress. By enabling the production of serotonin (also known as the ‘feel-good’ neurotransmitter). 5-HTP promotes a calm and relaxed mood.
3: Support Weight Loss: Multiple studies show that lack of sleep increases weight gain and the cravings for energy-dense, high-carbohydrate foods. The improved mood from serotonin produced by 5-HTP helps to reduce appetite and promotes the feeling of fullness. The serotonin also reduces ’emotional-hunger’ reducing sugar cravings and stress snacking.
4: Improve Immunity: Lack of sleep can affect your immune system. Researchers took blood samples from pairs of identical twins with different sleep patterns and discovered that the twin with shorter sleep duration had a depressed immune system and was more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, such as a common cold virus. Lack of sleep can also affect how fast you recover if you do get sick. Improving your sleep with 5-HTP can support your immune system.
