Efficiency of 5-HTP Powder
- Jul 08, 2019 -

5-HTP powder is derived from Ghanaian seeds. Ghana seeds contain up to 20% weight of 5-HTP powder.

Clinical application:

1. Anti-depression: 5-HTP powder is a metabolite of amino acid tryptophan and a precursor of human serotonin, which is used to synthesize serotonin (an important substance that plays an important role in the function of common nerves and brain). It is helpful for normal nerve substances and brain function, and can treat depression.

2. Alleviating stress and improving sleep: It can help the body balance this hormone so as to control human mood, improve sleep quality, and effectively suppress pain.

3. Weight loss: can effectively control appetite, improve the sensitivity of the satiety center. In the dietary control of weight loss process, reducing hunger, making the process of weight loss easier and easier to achieve, is the current popular dietary supplement for weight loss.


The mechanism of action is as follows:

5-HTP powder is a natural essential amino acid. It is the precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter important for controlling appetite, mood and sleep. 5-HTP powder is a hydration tryptophan extracted from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a natural plant growing in Africa. A small amount of this ingredient exists in natural protein foods, but the concentration is not high. At present, there are many clinical experimental data on weight control and bulimia, which prove that 5-HTP powder can effectively control appetite. The most important thing is that it is a natural nutrient, safe and without side effects. However, in appetite control, the daily dose must be more than 100 mg to 200 mg. Some studies have shown that taking 200 mg 5-HTP powder 20 minutes before three meals a day can reduce the intake of carbohydrates by 22%, which inhibits the body's appetite for carbohydrates. Another 12-week study showed that 5-HTP powder of 600-900 mg per day significantly reduced body weight compared with unused ones.

In addition to traditional medical functions and anti-depression, it also has the functions of abstinence from addiction, improving sleep, alleviating premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and treating migraine headache.
