Natural Zest 5 HTP
I started taking this vitamin about 1 week ago and I could not wait to tell you how much better I feel! I am not sure if it is because I am sleeping better, I just feel better, or I just do not feel so tight all over my muscles. I like to know what I am taking and normally I would do this research before I start taking it, but when I seen that it helps with my moods, I just started taking it.
With my fibromyalgia it is hard to keep in an upbeat mood. I hurt 24/7, the pain never, ever, goes away completely, I am exhausted all the time, and I have been told, by the ones closest to me, that I might not be the nicest person some days. Ok I can be the b word, and I try my hardest not to be.
I must say that the last few days I do not feel so bad. I have always been the optimistic one, until the last few years. The past few days I almost feel like I am on my way back to “normal”. If you know anyone with fibro all they want is to go back to before everything got bad. So this is what I would consider my “normal”. I really have looked at things different in the past few days and the only thing different is the Natural Zest 5 HTP .
This reminds me I have not felt anything bad, no stomach problems, actually fewer headaches, not really hungry just eating to survive, so not the junk. I blew this picture up so you could see the ingredients.
I wanted to know what the 5-hydroxytrytophan or 5-HTP
I found this on WebMD HERE:
5-HTP is used for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, migraine and tension-type headaches, fibromyalgia, binge eating associated with obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and along with prescription drugs to treat seizure disorder and Parkinson’s disease.
5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.
You can go HERE and check out people’s reviews of the 5-HTP treatment I was happy to see how well it rated which agreed with my opinion, but a lot of people feel this way. These reviews do not mention any brand just the medicine.
I am really glad I was given this product to review because it is helping me and this will be something I bring up with my pain doctor next month. I wish I had found this a few years ago.
I was given this product in exchange for my honest opinion!
Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you know someone who could use this!
