I recommend this supplement wholeheartedly! I can't say enough great things about it. I very thoroughly researched different brands of 5-HTP and found that this brand was the best. The first reason I chose this brand was because they are one of the few brands to state that their product does not contain Peak X. Peak X is a toxin that is linked to the development of EMS in 1500+ consumers who were taking 5-HTP supplements back in the '90s. Luckily I had read a review from an awesome consumer who mentioned this in their review, so I want to inform others of this toxin so that more people will purchase safer health products. I also purchased this brand because of the really great reviews I found online, as well as the fact that this 5-HTP is gluten free and does not contain fillers or other unwanted ingredients. Now to the review: I started off by taking only half a capsule every night for a week (50 mg). I'd break open the capsule, pour the powder onto a little dish and put half under my tongue for about a minute before swallowing down with water, saving the other half of the powder for the next night. The first night I took this, very quickly I began to feel very calm and relaxed, literally as if I had taken a Xanax. It was a really awesome feeling. I slept amazingly well that night. I only felt that kind of high that one night, obviously because my brain was adjusting to the supplement. After a week, I upped my dose to a full capsule every night, about an hour before bed. I continued to break open the capsule and pour the powder under my tongue, hold for about a minute and swallow with water. The taste of the powder is really pleasant, unlike other supplements I decided to take sublingually. I've been taking this 5-HTP for about two months or so and the effects are still noticeable. About a half hour after I take this, I become relaxed, happy and sleepy but I do not feel like I'm drugged whatsoever. I can definitely see the different in my mood, appetite and sleeping patterns. I did have very vivid dreams when I started taking this supplement, and occasionally still do, but I've never had any nightmares at all on this stuff. I highly recommend this 5-HTP for anyone with sleep issues, weight concerns and/or mood imbalances. I plan to buy and use one more bottle before I take a break, since the recommended period of time to take this is about 12 weeks, although I'm not sure that prolonged use can cause adverse effects. Definitely do NOT take this product if you take any type of antidepressants or have Bipolar Disorder. If you do have an adverse reaction after taking 5-HTP, you may not have very low levels of serotonin, therefore you won't need this. If that is the case, look into taking Melatonin, for sleep, weight and mood imbalances. **If you find my review useful, click "YES" and see more useful info by clicking on my name.**

會持續回購的好東西

Posted by ivykao on May 25, 2016

因為想要健身效果更好、身材更好,所以飲食管理不可少,飲食上有所限制難免會情緒波動較大、精神興奮睡不著,自從吃了這個色胺酸情況改變非常明顯,剛買來第一天吃時,當天晚上我還是難入睡,差點放棄它不再服用,後來上網看了相關資料才知道它是需要服用一段時間才會慢慢改善,所以我繼續服用了不到一個星期,效果就慢慢出來了,我的情緒變的平和,心情也確實變的好,晚上到了睡覺時間不會變的還很亢奮,而以前都要翻來覆去一、二個小時才能入睡,現在不用10分鐘就不醒人事了,哈。當然食物裡也有色胺酸,但還沒攝取到足量你可能就先吃進太多熱量了,所以這是不錯的補充品,建議飯後食用,不要跟B群一起吃,維他命B會阻礙色胺酸吸收。
