5-HTP Neuro Transmitter Supplement

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

  Do you ever wake up feeling tired, un-rested, stressed out, or "on the wrong side of the bed?" I am sure it has happened to the best of us. We all do what we can, of course. (Well, most of the time) We go to bed early, drink plenty of water (did you know dehydration affects sleep??), we eat healthy-no midnight snacks of cookies and milk!, and sometimes so much more. But, heaven knows, that isn't always enough. We get stressed, we worry, and there's the dreaded list making I know many people do-myself included. (is it just me, or did it get worse after having kids??)

With all of these feelings comes stress, mood swings, lack of memory, depression, sickness, sleeplessness, or an unhealthy appetite. (or stress eating) So, what else can we do? How do we handle a poor nights sleep, stress, stress eating, or mood swings related to feeling stressed out or un-rested? What do we do to regulate these "feelings" or symptoms? Of course, we know all of the "obvious" ideas (some are even listed above...) but there is something we can do that maybe you didn't know about, or just haven't had any experience with. It is a natural supplement called 5- HTP.  


What is HTP? 

  5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is a chemical compound that is naturally produced in your body as it makes serotonin, an important hormone for regulating your mood. Some doctors consider 5-HTP to be the best natural appetite suppressant. 5-HTP is also naturally produced in various plants, including the seeds of griffonia simplicifolia, a West African shrub. In addition to suppressing your appetite, there is some research that suggests that 5-HTP can also help treating headaches, insomnia, depression and fibromyalgia. 5-HTP works in the body by being converted into seratonin, which works in our system to enhance sleep, encourage good mood, suppressing "stress" hunger and enable healthy weight loss, and so many other things.

 Doctors suggest taking a 5-HTP supplement instead of a serotonin supplement because 5-HTP can access the brain from the bloodstream, while serotonin cannot. In order to access the brain, chemicals and compounds will have to access the blood brain barrier, which grants access to the brain. Therefore, you would need to take a supplement that can cross that barrier, like 5-HTP, in order to increase serotonin levels in the brain. As serotonin levels increase your hunger diminishes and you feel satiated faster without feeling the need to restrict your food intake, you sleep better, and you find yourself experiencing less mood swings.


 I had an opportunity to try this supplement actually. Specifically, I tried 5-HTP Neur0-Genius upgraded neuro-transmitter by Elite Gold Solutions. I have noticed much better sleep. I no longer lie awake making lists or worrying about the hundreds of things that most likely are never going to happen. I have more energy and wake up more relaxed and can handle stress better without going "out of my mind." (Like that ever happens!) My husband has noticed less "mood swings" (I have no idea what he is talking about!) and I have noticed a difference as well especially towards that time of the month. (every one appreciates that...) I have had better focus, too.

I have gotten more done in a shorter amount of time because I am getting less distracted by the ten things else I want to get done. (no more jumping from chore to chore) I am able to sit down (or stand up) and get one thing done at a time without a nagging feeling that I need to do something else at the same time. The kids antics have stressed me out less lately too...Mostly E-man with his sensory issues. I am able to tackle his sensory issues head on without feeling so stressed out or equally irritated as I found was happening all too often. (a sad realization)  


 Like described above, 5-HTP by Elite Gold Solutions, like other HTP products works to promote restful sleep, positive mood, and even aid in appetite. I think that the naturally more restful sleep aids in that as well as it is easier to tackle any problem on good sleep. It reduces stress eating, those fake hunger pangs (often brought on by under sleeping), and cravings. This product is great because it is also dairy, sugar, salt, yeast, shell fish, peanut, wheat, gluten, soy, and corn free so it caters to any diet, be it a soy free, gluten free, or vegetarian diet. It also caters to any common food allergies one may suffer from making it the perfect supplement for almost anyone. If you have issues sleeping or find yourself stressing out easily, or even get chronic headaches, I highly recommend trying 5-HTC Neuro-Genius from Elite Gold Solutions!
