Product Description

Studies have shown that use of 5-HTP natural Amino Acid 5-hydroxytryptophan may help to promote the brain chemical Serotonin. Our 5-HTP is extracted from the Griffonia Seed, using a specially developed process that retains as much of the active components of 5-HTP as possible. It is then compressed into an easy-swallow capsule , and each one provides 100mg of 5-HTP in amino acid form. Research shows that taking a 5-HTP supplement may help to maintain a balanced, relaxed outlook - and 5-HTP seems to be most beneficial if taken before bedtime. Some also find 5-HTP is useful within a weight management programme. We have manufactured our 5-HTP in an easy to swallow capsule , which should make it even more pleasant to swallow.

These are great for anyone who suffers from SAD in the winter. They boost the seratonin in the brain and do give one a lift. They are natural and do not produce any side effects like traditional medicine and I would thoroughly recommend. I stop these in the spring but will be back on them come the autumn when I get rather blue.

I have just read an article on these and am most impressed by what I read and so have added this to my original review. Worth anyone who feels low in mood, can't sleep, likely to put on weight easily, or feels anxious, having a look at the reading matter that is available on the web about these.

I am now going to re-order and not wait for the autumn as I have recently got rather low due to extremely painful joints [another thing these can help with apparently]and will review these again to keep anyone who is interested up to date with the results.

I'm willing to accept that using 5-HTP only works for some people. This could quite reasonably be the case, given the scope for diversity in each individual's physiology (genetic polymorphisms, varying levels of the various enzymes involved in the manufacture of serotonin, etc.).

I'm only pointing this out because I have seen reviews on the internet where people swear 5-HTP doesn't work. The fact is, for me, it has an EXTREMELY pronounced effect - mydriasis, increased libido, not to mention the mood alteration. That sure as hell isn't down to the placebo effect.

I guess the take home message here is these tablets, and 5-HTP "supplements" in general, are NOT to be taken lightly! An accidental overdose has the potential to put you in hospital or even kill you, and if you are on ANY psychiatric medications then please, steer well clear until you've consulted your GP. SSRIs in particular can easily be fatal in combination with 5-HTP due to an extended 'overdose' of serotonin. Side note: If you're sweating a lot more than normal, you have probably taken too much.

That aside, these tablets gave me an almost instantaneous lift out of SAD/atypical depression and I can't emphasise enough how grateful I am for that. They might even be too strong for some people - I'd recommend just one tablet, at around 7pm, to minimise the risk of any possible side effects interfering with your day/night. I may actually have to purchase some 50mg tablets in order to spread this dose out.

In summary: Definitely worth a try. Be careful. Be sensible!

I bought these as a delaying tactic - I was feeling so blue I thought I was headed back to Prozac after a ten year absence and I really wasn't looking forward to it.

So, on the advice of a hippy I met on holiday who had been regaling me with tales of evil drug companies suppressing something that was natural and worked better than Prozac I thought I would give 5-HTP a go. I had no expectation that it would work, St John's Wort never had.

But, wow, hours after I took my first dose I felt good. I had three days of euphoria before I settled into a pretty good relaxed, content state. People at work have noticed the difference, and am finding the high levels of stress very manageable (for the first time). They are so good I feel like there must be a downside - but I am yet to find much on the internet on what that downside might be.

I have become evangelical about 5-HTP, handing it out to friends and family who are suffering with winter blues. My friend sent me a text the other day that read 'Wow - are these things legal? I can't stop smiling and I nearly high fived a complete stranger'.

Make sure you take them at night because they put me to sleep. They are a very nice natural remedy.

I do feel much better however I was taking three 100mg a day as the bottle said 1 -3 per day, then watched a video on You Tube which recommended no more than 1 x 50mg. Apparently taking too much gives you nightmares! have cut back to two.

these pills did not help me at all, I suffer from anxiety and I would take these pills and nothing would happen, I tried high dosages and low but nothing helped calm my axniety, they do help with sleep though and can give you vivid dreams

This does help with anxiety, and starts working pretty fast. Helps me relax and especially during times of stress. I would suggest this product to anyone who feels a bit down, and there are no side effects. But gives really vivid dreams!!

I have tried lots of brands of 5-htp and most work pretty much the same This is a good price and it works well. 5-htp will give you a better sleep and it will give you crazy vivid dreams. I said vivid dreams not nightmares, I have never had an unpleasant dream using this. I now only use this every now and then though as I don't see any of the antidepressant effects.
