5-HTP is primarily used to support mood through its ability to boost serotonin levels. It has been compared to various tricyclic antidepressants, and has been found to be as effective with fewer side effects and quicker effectiveness. Since serotonin and melatonin are involved in regulating the sleep/wake cycle, 5-HTP also enhances sleep quality. Additionally, research supports a role for 5-HTP in reducing migraines and the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Studies in Spain and Italy found that 5-HTP was comparable to the drug methysergide in alleviating the symptoms of migraines (over 70% in both groups) while eliciting considerably fewer side effects. Fibromyalgia patients have been found to have low serotonin levels and have shown symptomatic improvement with the use of tricyclic and SSRI antidepressants. Several clinical trials have confirmed significant improvements in symptoms, including pain, morning stiffness, nervousness, and fatigue.

AOR Advantage
AOR’s 5-HTP is derived from the seed of the small shrub tree Griffonia simplicifolia and then processed in France. This source of 5-HTP is devoid of any “peak x” contaminants. AOR also offers 5-HTP Extra Strength, which is twice the dose of AOR’s regular 5-HTP, to meet varying individual needs.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a phospholipid that is a structural component of cell membranes throughout the body, but is most concentrated in the brain and cerebral cortex. Research has demonstrated that supplemental PS possesses the ability to enhance cognitive function, specifically improving learning and concentration. Clinical trials have also shown PS to be effective in other forms of cognitive dysfunction such as age-associated memory impairment, and to improve mental stamina in high-end athletes.

Additionally, there is evidence that phosphatidylserine can significantly reduce levels of the hormone cortisol, which is released by the body in response to stress. Research has focused on the connection between lower cortisol levels and elevated mood.

Middle-aged and elderly people, and those with cognitive impairments, may benefit from phosphatidylserine’s memory-enhancing and brain-protecting powers. It can also support athletes and those under stress by reducing cortisol levels. Memory, learning, concentration and overall cognitive stamina can be improved by its use.

AOR Advantage

PS was originally isolated from bovine brain. However, AOR’s PS-100 is from soy lecithin, making it vegetarian friendly. PS-100 contains a dose backed by clinical research.
