solgar 5-htp

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 1 2012 | Verified Purchase

solgar 5-htp is the my savior. this supplement can be supplemented as an alternative to prescription antidepressants. 5-htp is converted into 5-ht(serotonin) allowing for what is lacking to be produced rather than recycled. the Valerian acts to reduce anxiety and complements the effects of serotonin. no other pill compares and i largely attribute my happiness and freedom from depression and anxiety to the chemical balance i got from this supplement. try this first.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very effective

But didn't like valeriana in this product. You can take valeriana separetly if you need. It makes me too sleepy.

Thanks for your feedback!

I guess it helps

This caps really improved my mood, sometimes i felt like flying in the sky for no reason. I was taking them for a couple of months, then took a 6-months or more break. When I tried them again after the break I haven't experienced any mood improvement. Anyways, 5-htp is not a completely harmless thing, its long-term effects haven't been tested yet, but it was proved (?) that high dosage can really harm you. In some countries 5-htp is prohibited, as you might know, so I would recommend to be careful with these pills

Excellent quality

This is one of the few 5-htp brands that actually works as it should. I trust Solgar.

Thanks for your feedback!

Efficient BUT not for long time use!

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 6 2018 | Verified Purchase

I had great results in the beginning when i started using this product. I used to take 2 before going to bed and could finally find sleep whereas i used to lie awake. I did however NEVER realised HOW MUCH B6 IS IN THIS PRODUCT!! In europe the max dose you should take daily is about 1,5 grams. In USA this is 10! I have been using this product for years (!) and have now started to experience lots of numbness in my fingers - i just remembered once reading a review on this website saying to be careful because it could cause numbness and tingles in hands/feet - I just researched a bit and because i was used to taking 2 a night, that means i have had way way waaaaaay too much B6 intake using this product! So i'm going to the doctor after the weekend to have this checked out - i never linked the tingles and 5-HTP of Solgar together - yikes! THIS IS A FRIENDLY WARNING !

Thanks for your feedback!

Works well, dosage too low

Posted by iHerb Customer on March 11 2015 | Verified Purchase

Helps me get to sleep and have deep dreams while waking up in a good mood. I wish the dosages per pill were higher so I didn't have to take 5 per day!

Thanks for your feedback!

Wow effect

Posted by iHerb Customer on October 26 2013 | Verified Purchase

I am among the ones for whom it works since the first days. They have become lovely! I am less stressed and feel more energetic. Its not the only complex I am taking in. But only w/this one I had so much effect

Thanks for your feedback!

No noticeable effect

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 23 2014 | Verified Purchase

I have always been satisfied with Solgar products, this product being the only exception. No noticeable effect at all, Blackmores supermarket St Johns Wort far superior for mild depression and anxiety.

Thanks for your feedback!
