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 Goes Well With:ZMA, cod liver, sleep
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.Goes Well With:A brain
"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 mainly to help me sleep for the night and to help my mild depression. I'm not sure if it helps me sleep better, but it has definitely had a massive impact on my depression! the downsides are that after a week, it's started making me feel nauseous and my appetite is non existent but I could do with losing a few pounds so that's not too bad!
Wow read about these bad boys in men's health magazine, they have really worked I sleep like never before my mood is way better I feel more confident I take just before bed with zma tablet and bingo I'm in the land of nod Goes Well With:Zma tablet
I take one pill every night before bed, they help you sleep and you feel so much better the next day, I have a high demanding job and get stressed a lot, friend recommended these tablets and to be honest I'm more chilled now and feel a lot happier.Goes Well With:A glass of water.
I have 2 children young enough so my Sleep over the last 5 years is now so in Debt the IMF should help. when things get bad -a couple of these at night help me maximise the brokenSleep I do get so I am not a zombie the next day there is no substitute for Zeds.. but these help with what I get.
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. Goes Well With:A lie in
I decided to my the product after hearing good things about it from meny different people and podcasts. This has been my scones show prep and I can say that 5pht has been a game changer for me. 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
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 dosageGoes Well With:Caffeine pro L-theanine
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!
Helping me to sleep better and great combo with zma👌👌👌Goes Well With:Zma
I have been taking thes for about 2 weeks now, and so far so good. Make me feel slightly more refreshed in the Morning. This allows me to give that little bit more in the Gym. Give it time to get into your system though, don't give up after a few days.
Works wonders for me. Wake up feeling extremely fresh and rearing to go which I have struggled with before I started taking HTP. I took 3 capsules 1 hour before bed, took about a week to kick in. The one supplement I'll never stop using.Goes Well With:Sleep
Need time to start to sleep better. Anyway next feel not refreshed, heavy. I kad before HB 5htp. ten times better than MP.
Didn't do anything in improving my sleep. Only have one coffee in the morning, and eat healthy.
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.Goes Well With:Sleep and recovery
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.
