A while ago I came across a hack about low carb flu where someone (I think it was the Quilt) recommended 5-htp to relieve the symptoms. I'm sorry I can't find the actual question, his answer may very well have been a comment within an answer and it was very brief with little or no explanation as to why 5-htp might be helpful.
I'd like to know more about this. Can anyone tell me why 5-htp specifically might help to alleviate the symptoms of low carb flu? My apologies in advance if this has already been discussed at length elsewhere. Feel free to just point me in that direction. :)
