Natural and reliable everyday companion

Posted by VixiVixi on Jul 31, 2016

5-HTP (50 mg) is helping me trough everyday stress. I'm taking it in the morning so it does not affects my sleep, it just takes off the rough edges of the day (working with demending and unorganised clients, short deadlines and other crazy stuff that easily lead to stomach ulcer, anxiety and depression). This seems to be a reliable mood buster and anxiety prevention for people who have moderately hard time to put up with the "world" and have helped me before to get back on my feet after certain personal problems or distress (like loss of a loved one, loss of pet, any kind of personal failure...). Package is great, capsules are not too big and are easy to swallow, I love that I only need to take one a day and the price is good for the three month supply.

Sí funciona

Lo tomo hace 6 meses y he notado que no me obsesiono tanto con los problemas de trabajo. Sobre la reducción de ganas de comer dulce no he notado nada.

Great support for sleep

Posted by AIM-FOR-GOOD-HEALTH on Mar 16, 2016

5-HTP gives you tryptophan what the body needs to produce its own serotonin which enables you to fall asleep. As we age (or reach menopause), we produce much less serotonin and for many sleep becomes a problem. Great supplement, great brand and highly effective solution for insomnia. My advice is to take it immediately before getting into bed otherwise your brain will get the message that you want to stay awake and will take action to counter its effects - that's been my experience of some 20 years of using this. In the end I fully resolved my issue by addressing over-stressed adrenals (which is often a big factor in today's society and for women in menopause especially when symptoms go on for years). I took the herb Schizandra for my adrenals - miracle stuff. I am now cured of Chronic fatigue and insomnia after 9 years of searching for a solution to my sleep issues.

Good product

Posted by WhiteRose on Mar 07, 2016

I have used this product for the period of about 3 weeks when I had a slight depression due to personal issues. My personal opinion is that it works. It just takes some time to do so. I can't say for sure that I got better because of it or it was just a placebo but I believe it helped me. It is also said that it helps with insomnia as serotonin itself is connected to melatonin.What I like about it is that it is natural. Unlike all antidepressants that are synthetic 5htp is a seed extract that is being transformed into serotonin in the brain. That's why it is not considered as a drug but as a food supplement. As a conclusion I'd say give it a try and see how you are going to react. Don't expect any psychological or side effects from it. You would also need to take it some time before it has any affect as it is based on a storage principle.
