The newer stronger one is better
29 November 2018
I purchased a 6 month supply of these back in February, i took the whole course and was meant to write a review, i thought i did but i checked the other day and it turns out i didn't, so here i am.
Now i got these because i heard they’re good for all sorts of things, but the two things that peaked my interest were - Sleep, Depre*sion, and Anxiety. Basically they make you ‘happy’
I read that they increase a few hormones, the two in particular are Serotonin, which helps with depre*sion and is the hormone that is released when you’re happy, and Melatonin, this hormone releases when you sleep and depending on the time of day/ how relaxed you are. I shall explain these two more now for those who are interested, but as this is a product review and no a science call feel free to skip, this will not turn your grade C to an A (I’ll try to keep it brief and simplify it)
Serotonin - Depre*sion
Serotonin is a mood hormone and helps balance your mood, people who suffer with things like depression and anxiety have low Serotonin counts which is why tablets like these, that help produce the hormone, help people with these conditions.
Now you may be thinking, ‘if i take these i will be happier because it increases my mood’ yes that is true, but it doesn't just mean mood as in ‘happy’ it will also mean you’re more focused, and more calmer, and i can think of many situations in my life where this will help.
Melatonin - Sleep
Melatonin is produced when your in deep sleep plus during your bedtime, and the reason i say ‘your bedtime’ and not ‘night time’ is because your body has a clock, and your body knows when you sleep and when you're wide awake, that why you’ll notice you always wake up at certain times every day (for those of you who wake up at different times every day, don't produce enough Melatonin) and when your body knows it's close to bedtime and starts producing and it makes you tired
Now the problem i had with these it that they were awkward to take, as soon as these hit you tongue they would dissolve into powder and it just made me feel like i was taking them wrong, because i'm not good at taking tablets i need to work up to it and by time i did it would be all power in my mouth which felt horrible going down the throat and tasted horrible. IF you’ve ever taken the Nurofen Meltable Tablets you’ll know what i mean.
Also i would find my morning ‘Toilet break’ would always consist of my have a runny poo, i apologize if your eating haha.
Now all in all these are great tablets, and i would recommend them, but now Nuunutrition have come out with a capsule version that is twice the strength and all that powder is inside a capsule so they are much easier to take and i don't get the runny poo with this one for some reason but I’d really recommend you go with that version instead of this one :)
I did have a link here but Amazon wouldn't let me put it, just search nuunutrition 5htp' and it's the 400mg one
If you've found this review informative/helpful please mark it as such, i would really appreciate it if you did and I'm happy to have helped you.
