This is my question too, but for weight lifting. (Heavy) weight lifting is already very dangerous to the heart, especially for me since I'm at risk for an enlarged valve.
Not to be nosey, but why are you at risk for an enlarges valve? I have MVP and already have a funky valve. My MVP is bad to the point I get bad palpitations. So I hear that 5 htp can be risky on the heart, is this true?
