Feeling blue every now and then is perfectly normal‚ but feeling like that on a regular basis isn’t. When you’re feeling down‚ you may have trouble sleeping or experience sudden changes in appetite. Mild depression may also lead to trouble concentrating on things and making decisions‚ which can affect your job performance. Dealing with negative thoughts and feelings day after day can also take its toll on your health and personal relationships.

Fortunately‚ you don’t have to put up with this gloomy mindset. There’s a natural way to fight off this funk‚ thanks to a chemical called 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan). 5-HTP comes from the amino acid tryptophan‚ which is contained in foods like as turkey‚ milk‚ sunflower seeds‚ turnips‚ and potatoes. Your body converts tryptophan into 5-HTP‚ which is then made into a chemical messenger (neurotransmitter) called serotonin. This neurotransmitter helps keep your mood stable and promotes relaxation. It also helps you sleep‚ controls your appetite‚ and lowers anxiety. Since most people don’t get a lot of 5-HTP from their diet‚ taking a supplement is often recommended.

Protocol for Life Balance’s 5-HTP promotes a positive outlook and keeps sadness at bay. It’s taken from the beans of an African plant called Griffonia simplicifolia‚ and is fully vegetarian. Each capsule provides you with 100 mg of 5-HTP to enhance your mood. It also has the added benefit of helping you achieve longer and higher-quality sleep‚ since 5-HTP helps support melatonin production; the hormone makes your sleeping and waking cycles more regular‚ so you fall asleep more easily at night and feel rested in the morning.

One bottle of 5-HTP by Protocol for Life Balance contains 90 capsules‚ which should last you for roughly three months. Take one capsule per day without food before you go to bed. If you need a stronger dose‚ take up to three a day at different times‚ unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

Protocol For Life Balance™ offers only the highest quality supplements‚ allowing it to provide effective support for good health. This company is committed to making life simpler for health practitioners and patients.
