  • Works well

    Posted by on Jul 11, 2018

    Seems to work well, apparently also works well if teamed up with a Tyrosine supplement.

    Packaging and postage is secure fast and efficient.

    Does not seem to induce sleep if only one is taken, but can aide better sleep. Clearer dreams also seem to occur.

    Would not recommend taking more than one unless at night before bed, in case it does cause any drowsiness.

    No side effects experienced.

    When it was not taken, no 'withdrawal' side effects were experienced either.

    This seems to be a safer natural alternative to the various synthetic pharmaceutical anti-depressant drugs prescribed by doctors/psychiatrists, which do have reported dangerous side effects.

  • 5~HTP

    A friend put us on to these, they are great, better than antidepressants!

  • Better mood and sleep

    Posted by on Jun 17, 2018

    I take these while I'm at work for 3 weeks out on site. I notice my mood is much better and I can get through the trip easily.
    Have been pretty cranky when I get home tho, so I'll try taking them at home too to see if there is any improvement in my mood.
    Generally I do get a slightly better sleep while using these but not sure if they induce sleep.
    All in all, good product and I'll continue using it.

  • Promote deep sleep

    Posted by on Jun 07, 2018

    Tends to have happy dreams and deep sleep after started taking 1 capsule prior to sleep. But whether it helps in inducing sleep is questionable. Overall wellbeing has improved after taking this for a while.

  • Really Works

    It really enhances the mood, especially when going through hungover

  • Parkinson's and anxiety

    Posted by on May 08, 2018

    I have early onset parkinsons with high anxiety. 5htp has proved to be an asset in treating my anxiety and sleep problems.

  • 5-HTP

    Posted by on Apr 19, 2018

    I found this to be an excellent supplement for myself, which overcomes the rate limiting step when the body converts tryptophan to 5-HTP. I am sleeping much better and handling life's normal stresses better. If you haven't already, become familiar with how/why the body converts L-Tryptophan > 5-HTP > Serotonin > Melatonin. Very interesting! Thank you Bulk Nutrients for making this available.

  • Life Boost

    Posted by on Apr 09, 2018

    I take 1 capsule most nights before bed. Only recently started using 5htp but have heard of its effects for quite some time. I use it to temper work stress and improve my day to day mood imbalances. I don’t have depression, just mild anxiety that I sometimes need some help with. I refuse to take antidepressants for a bunch of reasons.
    Since taking 5htp, I have definitely noticed more vivid intense dreams. I’ve been sleeping better and my daily mood seems much more stable. I’d recommend this to anyone who needs a little life boost but doesn’t want to commit to potentially harmful pharmaceuticals and antidepressants.

  • Effective and cheap

    Posted by on Mar 27, 2018

    I use this 5-htp for to receive my depression without causing the numbness that antidepressants cause. Bulk nutrients 5-htp works, and the 4 pack is the cheapest deal I could find. I take the max dose of 5 pills in the morning and 5 at night but you probably don't want such a high dose to start off with. In any case, good stuff.

  • Reduced my anxiety massively!

    Posted by on Feb 25, 2018

    I was having issues with depression and anxiety, especially waking up with uncontrollable anxiety for no apparent reason. After a bad reaction to a prescribed anti-depressant (the third bad experience over many years) I decided medications weren't enough. A friend suggested I look into 5-htp and DIM to help balance my serotonin and estrogen levels. He is a long time customer of bulk nutrients and sent me the link.
    The next day I had my order and started taking one tablet of each a night and an extra of the DIM in the morning.
    The effects were immediate! My morning anxiety completely disappeared and I wake up positive and more vibrant. My PMS is no longer out of control and my emotions are much more manageable in general. I haven't had a pancic attack since I started taking them and even my psychologist is noticing the difference and is glad I found a more natural way to help manage my condition.
    Also, yes the 5htp do make you dream vividly, but for me, they haven't been bad dreams and so I actually like it. A kinda cool side-effect if you ask me.
    I just started on my second order and bought in bulk! Highly recommended!
