Mood and Weight: An Unbalanced Relationship There is a documented correlation between depression, anxiety, and weight gain. Stress triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which is secreted in response to adrenaline—all part of the fight-or-flight response. Increased cortisol levels can lead to decreased sleep, increased cravings for carbohydrates and sugar, and—in some individuals—increased abdominal fat. Nature's Antidepressant 5-HTP is an amino acid derived from the seeds of the Griffonia plant. For years, 5-HTP has been a popular holistic alternative to SSRIs and other pharmaceutical antidepressants that also work on serotonin levels. In addition to supporting mood, 5-HTP has also been found to have benefit in regulating sleep and in the management of chronic pain, such as migraine and fibromyalgia. Results from small clinical trials suggest that 5-HTP may promote weight loss by suppressing appetite and reducing caloric intake.* Benefits of NatureWise 5-HTP NatureWise 5-HTP can be beneficial in supporting mental wellness as a part of a holistic weight management approach.* Our formula is designed to give an added boost to your weight-loss program by providing the energy needed for motivation, and natural mood ingredients to maintain mood and reduce stress.* Our formula also includes pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, the active form of vitamin B6, to help catalyze 5-HTP's conversion to serotonin.
