5-HTP: Miracle pills?
Taking 5-HTP may be a great tool on your way to weight loss. It's also a mood lifter, as it can ease depression & anxiety. Studies were made with 5-HTP to see what benefits they can bring. Scientist found that participants who took the supplement for 5 weeks consumed less calories & carbohydrates then the group that didn't consume 5-HTP. Basically they ate less sugar stuff, starchy foods, & ate less food overall. 5-HTP increases serotonin in the brain which makes for a happier mood. Also, it will make you feel fuller faster than usual. As usual, drink water everyday & exercise for added benefits. Have a good day!
