took away that nagging desire to eat! And helped with my anxiety and depression. I've actually been able to focus and organize for the first time in ages. I've been on assorted meds for the past 15 years, and nothing has worked this well. I've been off all prescriptions for a month now, and I feel great. I feel like me again thanks to 5-htp, combined with rhodiola. Took some time to experiment with dosages, but I found that about 30mg of the 5-htp is plenty. 100mg made me sleep, a nice dreamy sleep, but I can't sleep all day, too much to do. Even taking it every other day works well. I've tried LOTS of supplements over the past year, nothing has had such a profound effect as this. And this is the 1st time I felt I needed to write a review, please try it!

I loved this product it helps me sleep, however the effect does not seem to appear all times.

I have only been taking these for about a week and so I haven't noticed a great deal of changes but I do think they are helping me to feel a little happier internally and a little more in control
Good for jet lag

I tried this recently when I spent a few weeks overseas. I don't really feel any different when I take 5-HTP, I guess my serotonin levels are fine already. But it did seem to help me sleep and, more importantly, get over jetlag in just a couple days (when in normally takes over a week). I guess it's because it helps produce melatonin.

Too strong for me

This product was unfortunately too strong for me. I tried taking half a capsule at night and I did sleep better but felt extremely groggy all day the next day. It might be because I have MTHFR and that messed with my methylation.
