Do you know what Serotonin is? Serotonin plays a great role in our bodies, especially when it comes to our sleep habits. It also has a big role in or pain sensitivity and even our appetite. We all naturally produce serotonin. This release is what gives us a sensation of well being. Serotonin also helps reduce our appetite as well as helps us with anxiety.
So what happens when we don’t produce enough serotonin?
We Feel Unhappy or even Depressed
We have anxiety
We jump into emotional eating
We don’t sleep well
We even get headaches.
I have actually been dealing with most of the above symptoms, most of my life. I have tried everything from therapy, medication and over the counter items. I have tried exercise, affirmations. ETC. Some things did help somewhat and others not at all. Some were good for me and others were not as well.
I don’t like feeling like that.. I don’t like losing sleep, gaining weight. Not being able to live life as I should. I guess that is why I was anxious to try 5-HTP.
5-HTP is a mood enhancer from Chronos Pharma. It is a natural substance that increases your production of serotonin. My reasoning for wanting to try this is mainly because it is all natural. I have found that using medication sometimes helps one thing and hurts another. I prefer to have a more natural feeling and a feeling of being safe.
My biggest problem with taking any type of tablet is actually remembering to take them. These were easy to remember. I just took the suggested 1-2 a day. Starting out with 1 and increasing the dose to 2 after seeing how my body reacted to it. There is 60 tablets in a bottle so that is a months worth.
What did I think of them? I felt a mellow feeling. They didn’t work over night, but as I continued taking them I noticed I was sleeping better and suffering less headaches. My appetite is always something else, and since Thanksgiving was a week ago, I can’t say I slowed down on the food.
In my opinion these were well worth the taking. No side effects. And something I will probably continue to take. They are available on Amazon for only $13.99 a bottle!

WHAT STRESSES YOU OUT?
I have to say that if you are already taking medication, I stress you talk to your doctor before switching it. It could be dangerous to just stop your medications.. so do this with thought and care.
