Great idea but bad combination

5-Htp shouldn't be combined with B6 since B6 converts 5-Ht to serotonin and you don't want that conversion before it enters the brain. Once converted to serotonin little of it can cross the brain barrier and the excess serotonin in the blood is a problem. In short, I would love this product if they hadn't made the common mistake of combining 5-htp with the B6. I know their logic is that B-6 is need to convert it to serotonin but you don't want it converted until after the 5-htp has crossed the blood/brain barrier.
