5-HTP is great for so many things!
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.

Got a slight seed after-taste that started mind games... wrote to company searching for an answer and was told I would receive a response... a week or so later... still waiting... so no, I can't make an informed decision on this product as I've only taken it twice.
Natural and reliable everyday companion

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.

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.
