5-HTP is primarily used to support mood through its ability to boost serotonin levels. It has been compared to various tricyclic antidepressants, and has been found to be as effective with fewer side effects and quicker effectiveness.* Since serotonin and melatonin are involved in regulating the sleep/wake cycle, 5-HTP also enhances sleep quality.* Additionally, research supports a role for 5-HTP in reducing migraines and the symptoms of fibromyalgia.* Fibromyalgia patients have been found to have low serotonin levels and have shown symptomatic improvement with the use of tricyclic and SSRI antidepressants. Several clinical trials have confirmed significant improvements in symptoms, including pain, morning stiffness, nervousness, and fatigue.*
Ultimately, those who suffer with mood imbalances such as low mood and anxiety, or from migraines, fibromyalgia or sleep disorders may benefit from taking AOR Tryfonia.
5-HTP is an all-natural supplement derived from the seed extract of the plant Griffonia simplifolia.
