Read Label Warning if you have IBS, etc.

Posted by iHerb Customer on February 28 2011 | Verified Purchase

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.

Thanks for your feedback!

Wonderful Product.... Absolutely Amazing!

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!

This is the best 5-HTP I've used. It raises my seratonin level, elevates my mood, and helps me sleep normally. It is an easy to swallow, time release tablet. Excellent.

Thanks for your feedback!

Elevated mood.

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.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great relaxer and mood enhancer by Nature's Way!

Posted by GreenWarrior on March 18 2013 | Verified Purchase

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!

Amazing! Great to find 50mg!

I feel so much better ! Great dreams, happier during the day too! I think it must be boosting my serotin. I take one in the morning and one about noon. I'm staying at this low dose. I always think less is better when it comes supplemnts that affect brain chemistry.

Thanks for your feedback!

5-HTP a bust for me

I was really looking forward to trying this but I seem to be one of the folks it just makes sleepy instead of curbing carb cravings. I'll keep using til gone and maybe it'll get better but so far I've got doubts. Jeanne, Colorado

Truly helpful!

My son had been taking this for anxiety, and to increase his focus. It helped him to maintain a balanced outlook through classes, assignments, and exam. I have taken it, too, as it helps with improving my sleep. This is had been our experience; you must try it for yourself.

Thanks for your feedback!
