I started using 5HTP about a year ago, based on some really positive articels about it's affects. I am generally a very happy person, but have a busy job and am exposed to a lot of stress, which wears everyone down eventually. I always used H&B previously. They now make 50mg capsules - £19.99 for 60, but before that, it was tablets, which turned to powder in the bottle after a few weeks, which I can only assume is to do with humidity / water. Whilst I felt the affect of 5HTP in a small way, after using Love LIfe supplements, I noted a considerable difference - much stronger. now, all of this could be the placebo affect of reading articles and then expecting a change, but seriously, these little things are incredible. In short, they improve your mood, but better then this, they improve your resilience. The negative things in life generally feel more detached and much easier to manage - these do not make you 'stoned' unto oblivion, they just make bad things seem like situations to be dealt with or accepted rather than problems or issues outside of your control. They leave you in full control of your senses, but feeling in a much happier place. I would compare it the feeling you get after a good run or some physical exercise - if you do that kind of thing. So yes, I would recommend these for anyone who fancies replacing the seretonin that city life so rapidly sucks out of you! Price and quality are really top notch and I have reccommnded loads of friends who also love these and buy the same ones.
