*Benefits based on science*:
Researchers reported that supplementation with 5-HTP might improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and fibromyalgia pain, according to one study published in the Alternative Medicine Review.
Serotonin levels are thought to play a significant role in fibromyalgia pain.

Helps With Depression by Increasing Serotonin Levels
5-HTP supplements are believed to treat depression by boosting serotonin levels.
Could Help Decrease Migraine Frequency
5-HTP is supposed to help with migraines, which are throbbing headaches that are often accompanied by nausea or disturbed vision.
It found that supplementing with 5-HTP daily for six months prevented or significantly decreased the number of migraine attacks in 71% of participants (7).
In another study with 48 students, 5-HTP produced a 70% decrease in headache frequency(8).
