Seeking Health 5-HTP Extended Release is a prolonged release natural dietary supplement, containing 5-HTP, a precursor to serotonin obtained from the Griffonia simplicifolia seeds. The product effectively raises serotonin level in the brain, which improves mood, has antidepressant effects and restores healthy and peaceful sleep.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a natural precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for the proper functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Serotonin helps to maintain the proper rhythm of sleep and wakefulness, stabilises mood and regulates appetite.
5-HTP is not only involved in serotonin synthesis, but also supports production of other neurotransmitters – melatonin, dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenocorticotropic hormone. It quickly and effectively reaches the bloodstream and crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Symptoms of serotonin deficiency
Too low level of serotonin in the body system can lead to depression, impaired concentration, apathy, low heart rate and body temperature as well as severe sleep disorders. Serotonin deficiency can also result in excessive appetite and impaired control over behaviour in dangerous situations. People with low serotonin level are also exposed to greater risk of drug addiction.
According to the theory about depression resulting from neurochemical causes, there is a link between mood and serotonin level in the body system. Serotonin is produced from an exogenous amino acid, tryptophan, which belongs to tryptamines. It has been demonstrated that serotonin affects whether a nerve signal will reach all body parts or not.
Low serotonin level was observed in people with depression. Depression consists in prolonged deterioration of mood and unstable emotions. Serotonin allows for experiencing happiness and pleasure as well as reduces depressive symptoms, so that it improves mental condition of depressed people and those having problems with experiencing euphoria.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that using 5-HTP by depressed people gave effects similar to antidepressants, but did not cause side effects.
Positive influence on sleep quality
The highest concentration of serotonin is observed in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), which is situated directly above the optic chiasm. The impulse from the SCN reaches the pineal gland and stimulates biosynthesis of melatonin at night and reduces its synthesis during the day. Serotonin, as a precursor to melatonin, affects regulation of the circadian rhythm of sleep and wakefulness. 5-HTP, thanks to the ability to increase the level of melatonin, promotes the treatment of insomnia, improves quality of sleep and facilitates falling asleep.
Support in eating disorders
It has been demonstrated that serotonin participates in the processes responsible for weight control, and its deficiency can lead to paroxysmal overeating. Low levels of serotonin, together with a neurohormone responsible for increased appetite (MCH – melanin concentrating hormone), contributes to the feeling of hunger and craving for carbohydrates. Regular use of 5-HTP relieves paroxysmal overeating at night and helps to reduce calories, so that it allows for an effective fight against excessive kilograms.
To sum it all up, Seeking Health, 5-HTP Extended Release is a dietary supplement which restores the proper serotonin level. The product is recommended for people struggling with low serotonin level, which leads to bad mood and inflammations in the body system. Indications for 5-HTP use include also insomnia, chronic stress, neurosis and depression. The product can be also helpful during slimming, as it reduces appetite.
