Is there any downside to taking 5-HTP supplemental? Supplementally? Is there a tolerance that occurs? Could you become dependent on it? Does it lead to you know, perhaps a dip in serotonin after taking it, you know, like sort of a withdrawal effect.
So yeah, so he asked you to quite a few there's let me take a one or two one at a time. There are some genetic disorders where where where people have to be on 5-HTP their whole lives. So we have those people to provide some empirical evidence on on safety of long-term use for some applications particularly depression. Sometimes it seems like after a year or two. They people may need to boost their the levels of another amino acid called tyrosine. So King-size some tyrosine along with 5-HTP can can re-establish its Effectiveness, but hopefully within a year or two people are taking the steps necessary to boost their own endogenous or self production of Serotonin. 5-HTP is very safe. It's been used in children, especially children with with migraines, and I think it's Certainly safer than many of the drugs that are in use and it's something that is, you know natural to our body it it's something that we're just making sure we're providing enough of in order to produce this valuable hormone or neurotransmitter serotonin.
