Tried this many months ago, then tried a different brand. I noticed the difference within days of taking this again. Will not buy any other now but this. The quality is there. Others say 200mg so it must be down to the purity or manufacturing of this product. 👍

23 July 2018
The item was delivered promptly. This note is just as a caution for some users.Unfortunately after taking just one pill I felt very unwell [heart palpitations, shivering, nausea etc]. This may be because I am on other medications such as Warfarin and Sildenafil, plus Magnesium. The symptoms lasted for several hours.
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.
I startedtaking NuU 5-HTP in conjunction with Ashwagandha to reduce anxiety and stress. I take one tab of the 5-HTP with the B complex vitamin as I read it absorbs better with B vitamins. Since starting on this course of natural supplements, I have noticed my stress being far less. My overall attitude to life has begun to 'lighten up'. We are going through a stressful time selling our home. But my overall attitude has been quite accepting. I feel much happier in life and able to cope with both small and big situations that were getting me down before. My low grade depression has lifted. I also find myself eating more healthy without so many cravings.
Amazing product... Definitely helping me treat my insomnia.. Startedtaking it over the weekend and slept well till 10am in the morning which is not usual and I felt refreshed when I woke up. Will definitely recommend. Take it after food though, or else you may suffer from abdominal cramps.
I just startedtaking this about a week ago and I like what I'm seeing. I'm dozing off to sleep much easier than before and feeling rested when I wake. I take one each evening a couple of hours before bedtime. I missed the third day and could tell the difference. Even though it hasn't been long I think this is beneficial.
Arrived quickly. The capsules are a lot smaller than a previous brand with more potency so I am pleased with this. I believe it has had an effect where I am sleeping well again. I started to take magnesium and 5htp about 2 months ago and find I sleep better and helps metabolism. I would buy this product from this manufacturer again.
This product is brilliant, it worked for me. I tried taking one at night as I have had insomnia for over a year and I found I actually slept. So after 3 nights I startedtaking 2 a night and my sleep is improved and my general sense of well being is so much better. I really struggled before this product, it has made a real difference to me.
I have only been taking these for a week and already feel loads better. Not falling asleep much faster but sleeping deeper and managing to get back to sleep when I have woken up. Startedtaking for mild anxiety which I have already noticed an improvement but hoping it will give me a boost to get rid of it. Helping me get back into my exercise routine which is great to. Already recommended to a friend :)
About a week since I started using this product. I always used to wake up a lot during the night but after taking 1-2 of these before going to bed I asleep undisturbed until my alarm goes off. Also o feel more refreshed when I wake up in the mornings. Very happy
These supplements are fantastic. I was really down lately and my social anxiety became stronger than ever. After I started using these supplements, I became more relaxed, I have less mood swings. I am taking two tablets every day before going to bed, it is very easy to swallow. I really recommend it!
Have suffered for years with falling to sleep. This product starting working more or less from day 1 of taking (2 per night)... I find I have lots more energy in the day too. Hasnt suppressed my appetite though - but I am running 4/5 miles daily so I a m always hungry! Will def persevere with these and would highly recommend. I'm on week 2....
