5HTP Synergy 50 mg

90 Capsules  Price: $24.70

Code: HTP090 

Our modern, stressful lives lower levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin depletion leads to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. The pharmaceutical industry has responded to the serotonin crisis by creating a wide array of medications which seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5HTP). Naturally restoring serotonin levels may help promote healthy mood levels and may also reduce food cravings.* Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P), the activated form of vitamin B6, is included in this formula to support overall neurotransmitter metabolism.

Prescription antidepressants like Prozac®, Paxil®, and Wellbutrin® work by raising levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.  Unfortunately, because these medications work by poisoning critical pathways in your body, they are rife with side effects.  A much safer and more effective way to raise these neurotransmitter levels is to give your body the building blocks it needs to make them.  Serotonin is made from 5 Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and dopamine and norepinephrine are made from tyrosine.  Numerous double-blind (i.e. "gold standard") studies have shown 5-HTP to be as effective as prescription antidepressants but much better tolerated.  Another placebo-controlled study has shown tyrosine to also be as effective as antidepressants without side effects.  In addition, if 5-HTP is given without tyrosine, it often stops working after a few months.  Giving tyrosine along with the 5-HTP results in long-lasting improvement.
