Our 5-HTP Complex is "Food State" and contains 5-HTP from "Griffonia" (A Shrub). 5-HTP is the safe precursor to serotonin. We've included Vitamin B6 and Magnesium, these nutrients are necessary for the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin. Vitamin B6 contributes to regulation of hormonal activity, normal function of our nervous system, psychological function, and the reduction of fatigue and tiredness. Magnesium also supports the normal functioning of the nervous system and plays a role in many essential metabolic processes. It contributes to the reduction of tiredness and exhaustion, normal psychological function, normal energy-yielding metabolism. 5- HTP can reduce restlessness and improve mood, it may increase quality of sleep without increasing total sleep time. Low levels of serotonin in the brain can contribute to the development of long-term low mood. Many drugs prescribed for emotional well-being increase serotonin levels. Some studies indicate that 5-HTP may be as effective as certain antidepressant drugs in treating individuals with mild to moderate mental health issues. Ancient Purity Food State 5-HTP Complex comes in a Miron Dark Violet Glass Jar for maximum freshness.

NOTE: Individuals who take Ancient Purity 5-HTP may expect it to act quickly, altering their mood overnight. Medications, supplements and herbs that act upon neurotransmitters usually need to be taken for several weeks before patients start to feel the effects. Some people take more and more 5 HTP, hoping that taking more will increase the effectiveness more quickly. This can create a dangerous condition called, serotonin syndrome. Many alternate health practitioners recommend starting slowly with Ancient Purity 5-HTP Complex and taking it for only short periods of time. Please first check with your medical practitioner before taking 5-HTP if you are on any medication.
Contraindications: While this supplement appears to be safe for most people, 5-HTP danger occurs when people mix 5-HTP with prescription medications and herbal supplements. Taking too much 5-HTP is also dangerous. 5-HTP should not be taken concurrently with antidepressants except under the supervision of a physician because 5-HTP increases the activity of these drugs. Mixing SSRI medications and 5-HTP may result in a rare but extremely serious condition of too much serotonin in the body. People with too high serotonin levels exhibit a variety of symptoms including confusion, restlessness, hallucinations, fever, nausea, and vomiting. Coma and death follow swiftly after symptoms appear. It is also contraindicated in those with carcinoid tumours. Mixing 5 HTP with herbal supplements for depression such as St. John's Wort is also not recommended. Like SSRI medications, St. John's Wort alters the delicate balance of brain chemistry. 5 HTP can tip the balance into dangerous territory.
