Benefits, why take it?
5-HTP serotonin increase supplement helps with:
- Relaxation and stress reduction
- Mood balance
- Appetite control
- Neurotransmitter Support
Where is it found?
5 HTP is a natural substance found in the body. As a supplement it is extracted from from griffonia seeds. When you take a 5 HTP supplement it gets absorbed from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream and then the body converts it into serotonin, a crucial neurotransmitter involved in several important functions in the brain and body.
HPLC tested - Highest quality 5HTP raw material with no contaminants. An independent laboratory HPLC tested this raw material. The 5 HTP purity test shows 99.2 percent purity which is extremely high quality.
Source: Griffonia seed extract
Suggested Use, best time to take, what time to take:
For sleep: As a dietary supplement take one capsule in the evening at least 10 to 30 minutes before dinner on an empty stomach or as recommended by your health care provider. The best time to take varies among individuals.
For tension relief: You may take it on an empty stomach before breakfast or lunch. Some people may get slightly drowsy, others many not.
Buy 5-HTP for its many benefits but use it reasonably to minimize any potential negative reactions.
Side effects of 5-HTP supplement, adverse reactions:
Dosages of 5-HTP above 50 mg may cause side effects such as nausea, stomach cramps, and vivid dreams including nightmares. To avoid 5-HTP side effects use the lowest dosage that works for you. If you are sensitive open a capsule and take less than 50 mg. The capsule can be easily opened by pulling on each side. High dosages of 5HTP supplement taken without a break for many days or weeks may curb sexual desire. Before you buy a 5 HTP supplement, discuss with your doctor if this product is appropriate for you.
If the sexual side effects persist after you stop this serotonin enhancer, consider the temporary use of Passion Rx with Yohimbe to reverse the decreased libido. Sexual side effects often occur with the use of SSRI antidepressant drugs such as citalopram Celexa, escitalopram Lexapro, fluoxetine Prozac, paroxetine Paxil, Pexeva, and sertraline Zoloft. For more information about the side effects of this natural serotonin increase supplement, see 5-HTP.
Testimonial, side effects
Q. I took 5-HTP 100 mg dosage on an empty stomach and within an hour had nausea and dizziness. Are these 5-HTP side effects?
A. Yes. 5-HTP 100 mg is much more likely to cause side effects than 5-HTP 50 mg. This is why we don't sell the high dosage.

Source of 5-HTP supplement:
5-HTP, sold as a supplement, is extracted from the Griffonia seeds which come from an African tree grown mostly in Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Only a small (3 to 7) percent of the griffonia seed is made of 5-HTP, therefore, consuming griffonia seeds is not an efficient way of getting 5 HTP.
Since 5 HTP converts into serotonin the effects of a 5-HTP supplement may include a relaxed feeling, sleepiness, and healthy mood, although each person has a different reaction based on their body chemistry, time of day the pill is taken, the dosage, and the interactions with food and other supplements or drinks (coffee, tea). A few people report 5-HTP helps with appetite suppression and willpower in avoiding excess food consumption. For better appetite suppression consider Diet Rx natural weight management formula.
As to long term concerns, we suggest you take frequent breaks and not to exceed 100 mg daily. You could take 2 days off each week and perhaps a full week off every one or two months.
Drug interactions, hormone interactions, BCP, birth control pills, estrogen, progesterone
We have not had any reports of negative interactions with the use of 5HTP in women who are taking estrogen while going through menopause or with those on progesterone as long as the dosages are low.
Interactions with prescription anti-depressants, Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, Paxil, Zoloft, Viibryd
Q. I suffer from depression. Can I take a 5-HTP supplement the same day as Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac or SSRI antidepressants? I would like to know this information before I buy a 5 HTP product. I am currently being treated for depression by a medical doctor.
A. Since 5-HTP converts into serotonin, there is a theoretical possibility of serotonin syndrome if high doses of 5-HTP are taken along with a depression medication such as Prozac or another SSRI antidepressant medications. Therefore we do not recommend using Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, Viibryd, etc. the same day as a 5-HTP supplement unless your doctor approves and the dosages of the drugs and the supplement are kept low.
Interactions with anti-anxiety medications:
Alprazolam (Xanax), Clonazepam (Klonopin, Rivotril), Clorazepate (Tranxene), Diazepam (Valium), Flurazepam (Dalmane), Lorazepam (Ativan), Oxazepam (Serax, Serapax), Temazepam (Restoril), Triazolam (Halcion). There is little research regarding the combination of 5-HTP with Xanax, Valium, Ativan, and other medications used for anxiety. If you doctor approves you can use low dosages of a combination.
