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.

This stuff is amazing!! Best nights sleep ever!! I take with ZMA and cod liver capsules on an empty stomach. However if u take anti depressants it's best if u speak to ur dr first. 5-HTP raises levels of seratonin as do some anti depressants. You could do yourself a mischief. Research everything u put in ur body. Never rely on broscience

Hi, I have been taking the 5 HTP for about 2 weeks now and it doesn't make any difference to the sleep I am getting I am sorry to say. It doesn't particularly bother me as I have woken through the nights probably 4 times a night for the last 20 years, so I am used to it and not fazed. I just hoped the 5 HTP would allow me to do so. Hey ho! :) Shaun

Stacked these with caffeine and l-theanine and am very happy cravings vastly reduced with no affect to eating my prepped meals. Feel more focussed in the gym and quality of sleep is far better...not enough pills per pot as needed to take 4 caps twice daily for appropriate dosage

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.

Good balanced diet and plenty of exercise!

"Since coming back from holiday i was finding it hard to sleep, couldnt get off to sleep, and when i did i was waking up all the time, in the morning i felt like i hadnt slept. Decided to give this a go as its fairly cheap for 3 months supply, and jesus is it good, its nothing at all like a normal sleeping tablet, you just drift off naturally, go into a really deep sleep, and wake up normally feeling so refreshed. I can wake up in a morning and just get straight out of bed, awake and ready, instead of putting my alarm on snooze for ages cos im too sleepy to get up. I have NEVER slept as well as i do when ive had one of these, they have been an amazing help and i cant praise them highly enough."

I bought this product to help with sleep and recovery as a knock-on effect. Pricing is excellent compared to Holland and Barrett or anywhere else I've seen it available. I took this through a tough bout of training in which I was struggling to fully switch off at night. Taken at about 8pm it chilled me out nicely and lulled me into a deep sleep by about 10pm. My body felt heavy, relaxed and ready for a good night's sleep. I slept really well until 6am. I generally need at least eight hours of sleep anyway. After taking 5-HTP I would find it more difficult to get up in the morning. My body still had that heavy feeling and my head felt fuzzy. I still take it on nights that I don't have to be up super early and can lie in.

Really helps keep you in a good mood and helps you to keep your focuse at work without having to smash a lid of coffe. I would recommend this to anyone that likes to smile 😊

Due to shift working I've always had an erratic sleep pattern which means falling and staying asleep is difficult, frustrating and leaves me constantly fatigued. Since taking 5HTP falling asleep is slightly easier however the biggest difference I've noticed is the quality of sleep once dropping off. Even if it's only 4-5 hours it's undisturbed and quality sleep leaving me refreshed. Would recommend. Also great value compared to other stockists

When I first started taking this a few months ago I was a bit sceptical of its effectiveness as with most supplements I try for the first time. After a few days I did notice I was getting a better night sleep however I thought this could just be due to more intense workouts at the gym or maybe I was less stressed. I finished the tub and decided not to repurchase with the assumption it didn’t do anything for me. Within a couple of weeks I was waking up 2 or 3 times a night and feeling very tired in the mornings. I decided to buy another tub of 5-HTP and within a few days I was getting a better deeper sleep (and some crazy dreams like some have reported) and finding it easier to wake up. As far as price goes you get more for your money at MP and the quality seems to be the usual MP standard.

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!
