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

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.

"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.

Goes Well With:

A lie in

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.

Goes Well With:

Good balanced diet and plenty of exercise!

Legumes, some of which are called pulses in certain parts of the world, have higher concentrations of amino acids and are more complete sources of protein than whole grains and cereals.

I have used 5 HTP in the past and found it effective when dieting due to its ability to boost mood and sense of wellbeing, i also find it takes away strong cravings and urges to eat junk food so makes adhering to your calorie deficit slightly easier. Sleep quality is also improved when using this in combination with Zinc and Magnesium. For improved mood and to aid with dieting i recommend the use of this product. if you found value in my review then please use my referral code geoff - rdt (no space in between dash and letters) and all in capital letters at checkout for an extra 33% off order.

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!

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.

HTP best supp I use

Overall:

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.

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
