I started taking this supplement on medical advice and was surprised by the quality and benefits of this product. I suffer from severe headaches, especially before menstruating. After 3 days of taking this supplement, at the recommended dose, my headaches have greatly reduced and with a month of constant use, I almost don't have them. Using this product has also helped me sleep better and be less irritable/stressed during the day. The capsules are small and easy to swallow. The price is also very good compared to competitors.

I’ve been taking this 5-HTP from Drs Best for more than 6 months now and had been recommended by my naturopath for my energy levels and mood. It has been a relief to have my energy levels back to so many things in one day and not be knackered at 5pm. Also helps me maintain a good mood because I’m not constantly exhausted . It has a ripple effect as then helps with stress . Also has helped me to have a good night sleep . If you sleep well you wake up rested and then your day goes smooth . I’m very happy with this product.

I take this along with Dr's best Suntheanine L-theanine for my GAD (general anxiety disorder). It really helps! I take both up to 3/times a day. I would recommend this product to anyone who suffers from anxiety. Like it if you loved my comment, thank you! :) God Bless! <3

I like the fact that this one is time-released and enhanced with B6 and C; but one thing I especially appreciate is that this is a tablet with a distinctive shape. This may seem like a weird comment. However, I take so many supplements that its unusual shape is a good feature to me. I take it in the evening to assist with relaxation for sleep and it works very well.

I am trying this brand of 5-HTP because it has vitamin B and vitamin C. It seems to help me sleep better than another brand that I used previously.

Love the brand and most of their supplements are great quality! This one has a lot of benefits, like boosting your serotonin and improves sleep, helps to cope with stress too. Great supplement!

I highly recommend taking 5-HTP, and this brand in particular. The effect it has on sleep and mood is felt right away. My son, who is in Uni, takes this as a supplement. He can vouch for it- helps him cope with the challenges of a Uni student.

Great product. I take it at night just before bed and it helps me fall asleep when I'm particularly stressed, and stay asleep. If you need to be up earlier in the morning than your usual routine, maybe skip taking 5-htp the night before, as it may make it hard to get up in the morning (can feel like you want to continue sleeping). 5-htp makes me dream A LOT and very vividly! Or at least it helps me remember my dreams. I also wear a Huawei gt2 pro watch that measures my sleep, and I tend to have more 'deep sleep' when I've taken 5-htp. I don't recommend taking this in the morning as it may make you feel nauseous. I only trust brands that specify that they don't contain Peak X, as this brand does. You can easily find research on this contaminant. I also wouldn't recommend taking this if you take any other sort of brain affecting nutrient, drug, or medicine. You never know what combinations may damage your brain. Do your own research! When I first took 5-htp, within the hour I felt quite giddy, and had an extremely low appetite (the idea of eating seemed disgusting to me, even for foods I loved). This lasted for around 2 weeks and now it seems to be more of a mood stabiliser. I think this effect was stronger on me than the average person as I had been quite unhappy for a long time (so my perceived contrast in mood was bigger). 5-htp helped me to remember the feeling of 'relaxing' and being able to not care about useless stressors. I was able to smile and laugh at silly jokes as I had previously when I was happier in my life, instead of being critical and neurotic. If you're someone that focuses on the minor problems in life with difficulty letting go of those thoughts, 5-htp might help you. I don't take this continuously through the year, only during times I'm particularly stressed. I think it's important to give the brain a break from anything you consume that isn't healthy food, but that's just my opinion. For further relevance, I have never taken any prescribed depression/anxiety medication.

Hasn't let me down yet to combat depression and mood swings. The added B6 and C help with absorption. Can definitely tell if I've missed a dose - 2 caps once a day.
