Dr Oz: 5-HTP Supplement Decreases Appetite & Increases Serotonin Level

Dr Oz: Brain Controls Hunger

Dr. Oz is here to help anyone who feels like they are always hungry. He has found the best all-natural appetite suppressants and he is ready to share them with you.

Dr. Oz explained there are many factors that cause hunger, from your hormones to stress to your blood sugar crashing, but the main organ in charge of your hunger is your brain. Dr. Oz said he has the solution to help you get control of your brain and curb those food cravings for good.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Supplement Decreases Appetite & Increases Serotonin Level

Dr. Oz introduced the benefits of 5-HTP, a supplement used for appetite suppression which also increases serotonin levels, making a person happier.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Natural Appetite Suppressor

Dr. Oz said the key to naturally suppressing your hunger lies in a supplement called 5-HTP. Dr. Tasneem Bhatia explained 5-HTP is a chemical which naturally occurs in the body and could be the secret to weight loss. The supplement has been used for many years to treat appetite and as a mood stabilizer and can be found in the seeds of a West African plant or purchased over the counter at a drug store.

Dr. Denise Bruner added that 5-HTP is transported to the brain where it makes serotonin, the chemical that makes us feel happy. Why is this significant? Because people eat less food when they are happy.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Increases Serotonin Level, Decreases Hunger

Dr. Oz used a demonstration to illustrate how our hunger will be higher when our serotonin levels are lower. By taking 5-HTP you are going to flood your brain with serotonin and make your hunger go away.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Prescribed To Emotional Eaters For Weight Loss

Dr. Bhatia told Dr. Oz she most often recommends 5-HTP as a weight loss supplement to patients who are emotional eaters. These are the type of people who are typically stressed more often and will eat unconsciously, not even being aware of how much they are eating. 5-HTP is a good choice for emotional eaters because it will boost their mood and suppress their appetite.

They are usually the people who are stressed and often eat unconsciously, not even aware of how much they are eating, so 5-HPT is a good choice for them because it will not only boost their mood, but it will suppress their appetite at the same time.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Improves Mood & Sleep

Dr. Pina Loguidice explained 5-HTP is a better choice than other appetite suppressants because it has no fillers and it will boost your mood as well. Dr. Loguidice also said the supplement can help a person sleep better which in turn helps them to make healthy food choices in the morning.

Dr Oz: 5-HTP Slow Weight Loss Method

Dr. Bhatia told Dr. Oz her patients lose an average of half a pound to one pound a week while taking 5-HTP. She also pointed out this slow weight loss is a good thing because it will last longer even after a patient stops taking 5-HTP. Dr. Oz has often said he prefers a slower weight loss method because it gives a person a better long-term success rate.

Some of the data shown from women who have used 5-HTP to lose weight is especially incredible, Dr. Oz said. These women ate an average of 100 less grams of carbs a day, which is the equivalent of four donuts or eight slices of bread.

About the author

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Journalism and Anthropology, I managed a pizza place for a year, while freelancing for various newspapers in the area. Working every weekend in sauna like conditions, never being able to take a day off and being covered in flour is something I will not miss. I hope Recapo has air conditioning.
