Great 5-HTP!

5-HTP has practically changed my life since I started taking it around two years ago. My friend gave me some of the MyProtein version (tablets) and they seemed good quality, and definitely a great price. I now use patches instead which are slow release, but for people who prefer tablets, I would recommend MyProtein.

Goes Well With:

Good balanced diet and plenty of exercise!

So far so good

I bought these mainly to help with my sleep. Ive been taking 3mg of melatonin before bed for the last month which have helped a little but this seems to be better so I've stopped taking melatonin. I've also been a bit stressed out at work and so I'm hoping after a month or so once I've let them get into my system properly that they might help a little bit but I've only been taking them for a week so far so too early to say. I've noticed when I wake up during the night, I have no problems drifting off to sleep and always feel really drowsy and providing I give myself a good 8/9 hours sleep, I wake up feeling refreshed and fine the next day at work.

Ok but have had better

Pretty good kick, but generally felt they didn't work as well as the same when delivered in patch form. Will keep going though and see where I get to.

It works!

I have been having problems getting quality sleep. Since taking 5-HTP, I have slept wonderfully. I did feel a bit dizzy and with a mild headache when I woke up the first few days but all those symptoms faded away after a week. I strongly recommend it to any person looking to improve their REMA cycle. It works!

Well 2 weeks on this stuff, didn't help me sleep or feel different but i got an incredible tan while 'lumberjacking'. By incredible I mean almost switching race from caucasian to ethiopian (5-HTP increases melanin)." This is ridiculous! It increases melatonin (a hormone) not melanin. Just goes to show you have to take with a grain of salt what you read on the internet. I can't believe the absolute stuipidity of people.

5HTP SUCCESS

I knew this product would produce the effect I wanted as I have tried it before but I still applaud its effectiveness in weight and inch loss (could also be due to fact that I have become a vegan). I sleep better and my waterworks are more efficient, which is what I experienced the last time I took it when not a vegan and eating unhealthily. Excellent product.

I have been taking 5-HTP for a couple of weeks now as recommended. I have 1 per night before bed and have experienced better quality sleep.
