[What is 5-HTP]
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. It is also produced commercially from the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia 5-HTP is used for sleep disorders such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, migraine and tension-type headaches, fibromyalgia, obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), seizure disorder, and Parkinson’s disease.
[How does it work?]
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.
Depression. Some clinical research shows that taking 5-HTP by mouth improve symptoms of depression in some people. Some clinical research shows that taking 5-HTP by mouth might be as beneficial as certain prescription antidepressant drugs for improving depression symptoms. In most studies, 150-800 mg daily of 5-HTP was taken. In some cases, higher doses have been used.
Down syndrome. Some research shows that giving 5-HTP to infants with Down syndrome might improve muscle and activity. Other research shows that it does not improve muscle or development when taken from infancy until 3-4 years of age. Research also shows that taking 5-HTP along with conventional prescription drugs does improve development, social skills, or language skills.
Anxiety 5-HTP was found to be protective against carbon dioxide-induced panic attacks. One study compared 5-HTP and the prescription medication clomipramine for anxiety. Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant used for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder. 5-HTP was found to be somewhat effective in reducing anxiety symptoms, but not as effective as clomipramine.
Sleep 5-HTP supplements fared a little better for insomnia.5-HTP decreased the time required to get to sleep and decreased the number of nighttime awakenings. Taking 5-HTP along with GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), a relaxing neurotransmitter, reduced the time it took to fall asleep and increased the duration and quality of sleep. One study found that children with night terrors benefited from 5-HTP.
The benefits of barley. We have tips on how to get healthy with a bit of the common grain. Late last week, Health Canada formally approved the health claim that eating barley flakes reduces cholesterol and lowers the risk of heart disease.
Traditional Turmeric Health Benefits
Turmeric has been used for healing for thousands of years going back to Ayurveda, India’s 5,000-year-old natural healing system. (2)
This versatile spice was used internally to improve digestion, dissolve gallstones, relieve arthritis, and alleviate symptoms of allergies and colds.
It was applied externally for wounds and skin conditions. (3)
It was also used as a beauty treatment.
Soaps and creams containing turmeric are experiencing a surge in popularity today.
Turmeric paste is still applied to the skin of both the bride and groom in a ceremony before marriage in some parts of India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan to beautify skin and as a form of good luck.
The Curcumin Quandary
Unlike turmeric, which has been used for healing for thousands of years, curcumin was identified only about 100 years ago. (4)
Curcumin is extracted from turmeric for its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. (5)
But if you’re looking for optimal medicinal value from curcumin, there’s a quandary.
Curcumin makes up only about 3% of most turmeric powders. And curry powders generally contain very little of the stuff. (6, 7)
Curcumin either in turmeric or on its own is not very well absorbed.
In fact, studies show that 40-85% of curcumin supplements pass through the intestines unchanged. (8)
Scientists are working on high-tech ways to make curcumin more bioavailable like using nanoparticles or combining it with phosphatidylserine. (9, 10)
But it turns out that ancient cuisines worked out the answer to getting full turmeric benefits thousands of years ago.
By adding black pepper to curry powder mix, it greatly increases the bioavailability of curcumin.
It’s now known that the compound piperine found in black pepper increases curcumin absorption by a whopping 2000%. (11)
The bioavailability of curcumin is also increased when cooked in oil. (12) Again, tradition has this covered.
Indian cuisine liberally uses peanut, sesame and coconut oil, and butter-based ghee. (13)
Boiling turmeric in water, as is done to make turmeric tea, also increases bioavailability.
