5-HTP is great for so many things!
My depression and headaches were getting the better of me so I finally went to the doctor who gave me samples of Cymbalta which made my headaches even worse! While reading up on the side effects and withdrawal symptoms people have had with Cymbalta, I found a mention of 5-HTP and decided to read up on it and try it. I've tried a couple different brands and this one works very well for me, and for the price, I see no reason to try any more brands at this point. My ideal dose is one of these 50mg caplets, three times a day. It (as well as some other supplements to compliment that I found in Dr. Murray's book about 5-HTP) have totally brought me back from a very deep depression. I was sleeping as much as 13 hours a night and still not feeling rested; now I don't need more than 8 hours of sleep. Between 5-HTP and magnesium citrate supplements, I rarely have headaches now, when I had been getting them once a day with a rare day off. Sometimes I find that 5-HTP curbs my appetite and sometimes not. If you have any issues with depression, anxiety, mood swings, or poor sleep, I honestly feel that you should check out this product. Also Dr. Murray's book on 5-HTP is a great tool for learning about serotonin and how 5-HTP works (in so many ways) to improve the lives of people who have low serotonin levels.

Didn't work for me, use niacin instead
After reading "the Mood Cure" a great book on mood symptoms and non-medical approaches to treating them, it was suggested that 5htp might help me. Perhaps I didn't give it enough time to work or I didn't dose high enough but I just didn't notice a difference. After some research I discovered the role of niacin in the same serotonin pathway as 5htp and tried it instead. Wow what a difference niacin made and even better, its a lot cheaper than 5htp!! Please click 'yes' if you found this helpful and click my NaturalMum link above for more reviews on the benefits of different niacin supplements as well as natural beauty products, vitamins and supplements.
