5HTP is great b/c it lifts Serotonin level. Serotonin has many, many functions the most common of which is lifting mood and bringing calmness to ones mental activity. This in turn helps the body produce melatonin which results in better sleep. Better sleep results in the body producing more growth hormone... which in turn helps the body repair muscle tissue. Optimal levels of serotonin are vital for mental AND physical health. It helps with anxiety, depression, muscle repair, fibromyalgia, TMJ, headaches, back pain, etc. All of which have been found to be serotonin issues. Read the book Pain Cure if you need more info. Best of luck!
While 5-htp is touted to help IBS symptoms, its not for everybody with the condition. There is a specific warning on this product's label that cautions those with IBS, Crohn's and colitis to not take it. I have moderate IBS, which has been helped by tryptophan, but definitely not 5-htp. My symptoms became much worse and then there was insomnia and not sleeping well. All this on 25 mg with food. I wish I had read the label more carefully before taking 5-htp.

My 11 yo son has depression and is undergoing therapy, these have had a fabulous effect on him, I even checked it wasn't a placebo thing as I switched them with a multi vitamin and his mood fell dramatically. We are now using the 100 mg dose. I highly recommend this, but if it's for a child you need to talk to your GP first.

Hi there. This 5-HTP by Nature's way has been my go to solution to take off the edge, after a long day at work or a late evening workout. Effective but gentle at the same time. I fully recommend it. As always, start with the minimal recommended dosage. Feel free to click on my user name for more reviews! Health and Peace!
