5-HTP is used for insomnia, depression, anxiety, migraine and tension-type headaches, fibromyalgia, obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), seizures, sexual disorders, and Parkinson’s disease. 5htp is naturally derived from the the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, a woody 3m high climbing shrub native to Africa that bears greenish flowers followed by black seed pods.

What is the recommended dosage?
Each Bottle contains 90 capsules. Take 1 – 3 capsules per day.

What does it contain?
Each vegetarian capsule contains 100mg of pure 5-htp extracted from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, along side the necessary co-factors niacin (B3), pydoxine(B6), zinc and magnesium, to enhance the body’s absorbtion and metabolization.

Are there any potential drug interactions?
Refrain from using 5-HTP if you are already taking medications for depression, such as Prozac, or other serotonin-altering drugs like Tramadol. Prior to use, consult your doctor if you are taking any other medications or supplements. Excessive serotonin levels due to overdose or drug interactions could lead to severe side effects, including heart issues, shivering, and anxiety.

What are the possible side effects?
5-HTP may lead to heartburn, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, sexual problems, and muscle issues. If you encounter any side effects, consider reducing the dosage or discontinuing its use and promptly consult your doctor. Additionally, individuals with bipolar disorder should be cautious, as it may trigger manic episodes.
