Dr. Michael T. Murray to SmartBodyz Nutrition

 I have done extensive literature reviews on 5HTP (hydroxytryptophan) and am the author on the best-selling book on this supplement.

  • There is no evidence that 5HTP (hydroxytryptophan) increases blood serotonin to any significant degree at recommended dosages (see the studies in migraine headaches support where they actually measured blood levels of serotonin).
  • Telling people to monitor their use or dosage based upon 5-HIAA urinary levels has absolutely no merit.  Urinary levels of 5-HIAA do not at all accurately correlate with brain levels of serotonin.
  • Better results were achieved in double-blind studies in depression support when 5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) was used without carbidopa.
  • 5-HTP is NOT regularly prescribed with carbidopa in Europe.
  • Vitamin B6 does not influence whether 5-HTP (hydroxytryptophan) is converted to serotonin outside the Central Nervous System.
