Natural Balance, 5 - HTP, 50 mg, 60 Veggie Caps9 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Studies suggest that 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) may help provide nutritive support for the body’s level of serotonin, known as the calming neurotransmitter. Adequate levels of serotonin are thought to help keep the body calm. Vitamin B-6 is added as a co-factor to help provide nutritive support for healthy synthesis of serotonin in the brain.

Natural Balance 5-HTP formula contains natural 5-HTP derived from the griffonia bean. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is converted by the body to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. Serotonin is also a precursor to melatonin, which regulates the body’s day/night cycle and sleep rhythms.
As a neurotransmitter, serotonin plays a key role in maintaining mental and emotional well-being, affecting behavior, appetite and sleep. Natural Balance 5-HTP formula is intended to provide nutritive support for a positive mood and healthy levels of serotonin in the body.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Dr. recommended 5 htp for my foggy thinking. Nearby health food store recommended this brand. It worked wonderfully. Thought I'd save some money by ordering NOW brand from iherb. It doesn't work as well as Natural Balance, so I'll be ordering NB from iherb next time.
By the second day of taking half a pill twice per day (done by pulling the capsule apart), the HORRIBLE tension headache that had lasted for weeks was gone. I am dealing with minor depression and this helps me feel more like "me" - not perfect but I can now tolerate myself. The little things that used to get me riled-up are no longer a big deal (yay!). Also, I have been working out and watching what I eat for the last three months and had not lost a pound...two weeks on 5-HTP and I have already started shedding weight (3 pounds after two weeks). The only way you could make me stop taking this stuff is to pry it from my cold, dead hands. So barring that situation, I plan to continue using and recommending it to anyone who might be contemplating trying it.
