Lorna Vanderhaeghe Smile 5-HTP Benefits

5-HTP Enhances Serotonin

5-HTP is a break-down product of the amino acid tryptophan. Proteins in our food provide us with amino acids, one of which is tryptophan. Tryptophan is broken down into 5-HTP and then 5-HTP is turned into serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy and tells your brain that you are satisfied so that you do not need to eat anymore.* Serotonin deficiency contributes to weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and panic attacks.* Low serotonin levels also lead to carbohydrate (sugar) cravings and overeating.* 5-HTP may reduce appetite while also enhancing mood and increasing energy levels.*

5-HTP Improves Mood and Sleep

5-HTP has been used as a potential treatment of mood enhancement. It also may relieve insomnia.*

5-HTP Aids Weight Loss

Weight management is another potential benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP.*

SMILE 5-HTP: A Superior Solution 
 
Smile 5-HTP is enteric-coated, which allows 5-HTP to be absorbed in the small intestine.* Take a high-quality multivitamin with minerals like Multismart to ensure you get adequate levels of magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin B3 because these nutrients aid 5-HTP conversion into serotonin.*

Warning: Not recommended for pregnant women.*
