Five (5)-HTP

Posted   by Anonymous
This is like any generic (5)-HTP... I have trouble deciphering between different (5)-HTP as long as the dosage is the same.

Great serotonin boost!

Posted   by Lisa
This is a nice alternative to prescription SSRI's. I'm not a doctor, but I think it works nicely by providing a boost of energy, controls excess eating and keeps me out of my monkey mind.

This stuff is great

Posted   by Jacob
This stuff is great and really helps when it comes to coping with daily stress and tensions. I started using it a few months ago and I am seeing and experiencing its health benefits. It has helped to control my anxiety and keeps me calm as I am anxious by nature and worry over little things for no reason. I recommend these capsules for everyone who suffers from too much tension but please do consult a doctor before taking them as I am not doctor and only speak from personal recommendation.
