TravaCor 5 HTP

5-HTP is included in TravaCor to support the production of serotonin. Serotonin has many functions in the human body including the control of appetite, sleep, mood, and depression. Insufficient serotonin can result in carbohydrate cravings, depression, and troubled sleep patterns. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) may be useful for a wide range of health problems that are the result of a low level of serotonin.

How 5-HTP Works

5-HTP is a supplement that has been successful in treating depression, migraine headaches, obesity, emotional eating, fibromyalgia, insomnia and anxiety. It also helps with ADD and ADHD. 5-HTP raises serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep, moods and appetite. As a mood enhancer it makes you feel good. It also helps reduce both alcohol and cigarette consumption.

Active ingredient in NeuroScience TravaCor

5-HTP is the serotonin precursor that is formed when tryptophan is converted into serotonin in your body. It works because it supports your body’s balanced production of two important sleep regulating hormones, serotonin and melatonin. But you need adequate serotonin levels to maintain this balance. Eventually, the serotonin in your body is converted into melatonin, the hormone that helps regulate healthy 24-hour sleep cycles known as circadian rhythms.

In clinical research, 5HTP increased the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. It is able to cross the blood brain–barrier to increase both serotonin levels and serotonin production in your brain so you can regain a healthy balance when you are sleeping, feeling emotions, or eating. Note that anti-depressants are often used to increase the levels of serotonin by blocking the recycling of serotonin produced in the body. This results in an artificial increase of serotonin levels and side effects.

Aging and various forms of physical or emotional stress can decrease your melatonin levels and disrupt your sleep cycle. Fortunately, that balance can be regained. When 5HTP increases serotonin production, melatonin production is also increased. This increase can help you regain a healthy circadian rhythm (better sleep) and increase your energy.
