5-HTP Max is a supplement for 5-HTP and works naturally with your body to increase it's production of 'serotonin' - an important hormone for regulating your mood - 5-HTP is a chemical compound naturally produced in your body as it makes serotonin.
Some doctors consider 5-HTP to be one of 'the best' natural appetite suppressants, but in addition to suppressing your appetite there is some research that suggests that 5-HTP can also help in treating headaches, insomnia, and depression.
The body makes 5-HTP naturally from tryptophan and, then, converts it into serotonin. This neurotransmitter has many powerful effects on the brain. Not only does it improve mood, it also suppresses hunger and helps to curb weight gain.
Physicians suggest taking a 5-HTP supplement instead of a serotonin supplement because 5-HTP can access the brain from the bloodstream, while serotonin cannot. In order to access the brain, chemicals and compounds will have to access the blood brain barrier, which grants access to the brain.
Therefore, you would need to take a supplement that can cross that barrier, like 5-HTP, in order to increase serotonin levels in the brain.As serotonin levels increase your hunger diminishes and you feel satiated faster without feeling the need to restrict your food intake. One study found that women ate less carbs without even trying.
