Expires Jan 2024, 2+ years expiry. Thankfully it indicates that there might be risk of gastric discomfort so took only a pill a day. takes a while to experience the effects. Good at keeping me relaxed at night before bed. Experienced a bit of tummy issues with this but overall recommended
I’ve been taking this for a couple of years. It’s meant to help with emotional/mood issues, similar to an anti depressant. I now take also a very low dose of an SSRI which you should always check with a health professional because it can lead to serotonin syndrome if you take high doses of both. I believe it supports me, but the only way to know for sure would be to stop taking it and I’m not prepared to do that. I believe that it allows me to be on the extremely low dose of my ssri (5mg) with a therapeutic result.
This really works! I take it before bed and I sleep so good! 5 htp is a precursor for melatonin via the serotonin pathway. And taken in the morning, it gives a calm and steady mind for the day. Good for mood and stress control. I appreciate the benefit. Good packaging and greata mino acid!
Like many people, I struggle with occasional anxiety and depression. I have tried other supplements in the past like phenibut, taurine, l-theanine. After some research I saw that 5-htp is also an option for trying. When it came I decided to take it for a couple of days straight without any other supplements. I read with some other reviews that you might experience insomnia and stomach problems with 5-htp, and for me it was also the case. The positive effects are also true, you do feel a little more relaxed 30 min after taking it and it makes you more stable. But all in all I will keep it for very occasional use. This supplement should never be mixed with antidepressants
It seems to work for better sleep , but I always have the issue that new 5 HTP products only help for a while , then I have to stop for a few days ., but that I have with every kind and brand . I take it 1/2 before sleeping
I have used several different brands, and this is the best one I've tried! I definitely think it helps elevate mood, and reduce stress. I sleep better, appreciate the fact that there are no unwanted additional ingredients!
Have been on this for a couple of years to help with mood swings from Lyme disease, I tried other brands but this is the only one that doesn’t make me nauseas. Also helps with Mast cell disorder so I can eat more foods without reacting to them.
