I am on a low dose AD but have had a pretty rough summer. I have severe chronic asthma and lung inflammation. I read where 5-HTP reduces allergic airway inflammation by 70-90 percent. I tried a dose and wow, inflammation much improved. I started the 5-HTP for lung inflammation but it has really given me a mental lift as it increases serotonin. This supplement has been nothing short of a miracle for me on two counts.
Inflammation itself can cause depression as well as histamine. I guess considering the severity of my allergies and asthma it not surprising I have depression or as I like to call it, my melancholy friend. I am going to start working on reducing my histamine load and balancing my th1 and th2 cytokines. Hopefully, I can get another bump up toward better health. At any rate, the 5-HTp was a good find.
