Serotonin‚ a neurotransmitter in the brain‚ has several purposes. It can support overall health by working to regulate brain and endocrine activity. It may play a role in promoting a good night's sleep‚ because it regulates your body's sleep/wake cycles.
Normally‚ your brain's production of serotonin rises when you are exposed to darkness (usually at night) and drops when you are exposed to light (typically during the day); the problem comes when your schedule or habits interfere with this process. Modern technology like TVs‚ computers‚ smartphones‚ and tablets emit a glow that can decrease the amount of sleep you get‚ as well as its restorative quality. Traveling across time zones may lead to jet lag‚ which can also make it harder to go to bed. Night shift workers might also struggle with serotonin production.
In addition‚ serotonin may also help maintain emotional well-being. An imbalance in levels of this neurotransmitter may negatively impact your mood.
5-hydroxytryptophan‚ also known as 5-HTP‚ is a substance that occurs halfway through the process of converting tryptophan into serotonin. As a result‚ you may benefit more quickly‚ since the body doesn't have to spend as much time processing the tryptophan in foods like turkey to make it usable.
A supplement like Pure Encapsulations' 5-HTP 50 mg may be more helpful than consuming foods that contain serotonin itself‚ as well. By providing its building blocks‚ 5-hydroxytryptophan might be better able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
One vegetable capsule provides 50 milligrams of 5-hydroxytryptophan naturally derived from the herb Griffonia simplicifolia. Take one to six capsules daily‚ in divided doses before meals. Each 180-capsule bottle should last from one to six months.
