DISCUSSION: Tryfonia is L-5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) derived from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract. 5-HTP is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan, and an essential precursor of the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin and the neurohormone melatonin. Research supports a role for 5-HTP in supporting mood balance, ease of sleep, and the proper tone of the muscles on the back of the neck, and resulting changes in blood flow and pain fibers.

Pregnancy / Nursing
Do not take 5-HTP if pregnant, lactating or trying to conceive.
* Should not be combined with tricyclics, MAOIs, Lithium, SSRIs (fenfluramine, Prozac, zoloft, paxil, etc) or other similar drugs.
* High doses cause nausea.
* To avoid development of possible tolerance, it is best to adopt a cycling program of continuous use of no longer than three months.
* Some people initially experience mild side effects like difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, anxiety, nervousness, weakness, loss of appetite, dry mouth, sweating, or yawning when they first begin taking 5-HTP. These are the natural result of your body adjusting to the increase in serotonin in the brain and elsewhere in your body, and tend to go away within a few weeks of starting supplementation. These side-effects are not normally serious enough to cause people to stop taking 5-HTP; consult your physician if they persist.
* Not to be used by individuals under the age of 18 or those with a medical condition.
