How do You Take 5-HTP for Fibromyalgia?

Fibro woman holding shoulderThis is an interesting question for several reasons.

ONE. Fibromyalgia (FM) is different for each person with the diagnosis. Symptoms range from fatigue and light achiness to all over, intense pain.  Other symptoms include poor sleep with next day brain fog, irritable bowel and/or bladder and intolerance to drafts, multiple chemicals and damp weather.

TWO.  Symptoms change. For some, FM symptoms wax and wane and are unpredictable on a daily basis. For others, symptoms may get worse over time and with aging.

THREE. Yet a third reason is whether or not there is a co-existing condition. If you already have arthritis or another auto-immune disorder, it is difficult to know whether it is the FM or the “other” condition that is causing symptoms.

Yet, even with the complexity of FM, research has shown that treatment with 5-HTP is beneficial in reducing many of FM symptoms.

Happy Healthy Holiday Shopping!

Joy GiftHurray for the season of JOY! I hope you are shopping smart during the holidays.  While I am all into retail therapy, I also recognize the need not to unbalance the budget while doing and feeling good about giving! As we hand over that magic plastic, consider one more gift on your list to yourself, the gift of health. Amidst the stress and skimping on sleep to get everything done, remember to take your supplements to both to keep up your energy and support your relaxation when it is time for you to unwind.

Even though December is the last month of the year, anytime is a good time to take extra efforts to take care of yourself.

Oppose Durbin Bill S-4090 Now!

Rejected Supplements
Politics are complicated. But here's why and how to add your voice to protect your rights to supplements. 


As many of you know, we belong to a trade organization for our industry, The Natural Products Association (NPA). Part of our dues help support activist efforts in Washington. We need to oppose the latest slam on the supplement industry to protect our right to supplements without this proposed FDA control.

Senator Durbin, one of the co-sponsors of Bill S-4090 introduced on April 26, 2022, states the FDA “has the authority to regulate dietary supplements and take dangerous products off the market but it lacks the information to do so.” Therefore one aspect of the bill proposes a mandatory product listing to gain this “missing” information.  NPA President and CEO Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D disagrees.

Holiday Wishes

Are you wrapping up the gifts of 2021? Christmas scene

As we reflect on this 
season of giving, we are grateful for what we have. The festive baubles on the tree cheer us. The warm, familiar fragrance of balsam and gingerbread cookies. Strings of lights that twinkle into the darkness. The small gatherings of family and friends.

Joyful despite anything that is going on around us.
