Pharmaceutical Grade 5 HTP Powder
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) also known as oxitriptan is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.
It is taken for many reasons, with studies showing it to have positive effects on appetite suppression, sleep quality, reduction of migraines, improvements to anxiety and mood. Bulk Nutrients' 5 HTP is derived from plants, so is a more natural form of 5-HTP.
5-HTP is suitable for people who are looking for increases in mood and happiness as well as those who want to tackle some of the mental issues surrounding weight loss.
It is advised that 5-HTP should not be taken by people on SSRIs or other types of antidepressants. Please seek medical advice before consuming this product if you also take SSRIs.

5-HTP can be taken any time of day, however many users consume it before sleeping.
A typical dosage of 5-HTP is 100mg.

Im a very light sleeper and tend to wake every few hours. I haven't been on this long but my sleep and mood has been improving. Still working on the dose as i think the recommended is a bit too much for me.
It gave me a mellow mood really relaxed but my stomach couldn't handdle it. It gave me too much neusea i couldn't move for 2 hours. Its probaly my tolerance to it. I still think its quite pure. Tue packaging could have been better as you lose alot of the product. Maybe ill try the pills as ill be getting the recommended dose.
This stuff is great for depression or general moodiness - whatever you want to call it. It helps with lucid dreams too. It is some of the stuff that helps make serotonin and it works.
only just started taking this, so not sure how well it will work, however, the customer service is fantastic. Received product the next day!
Excellent product, works a treat. Needs a smaller packet, to difficult to get product out of bag. Would be best if it were in a plastic container.
This is a great product, I have been having digestive problems after 13 major surgeries and suffering from Crohn's Disease my whole life. Currently I can only tolerate a liquid diet. Was very depressed, found this and started taking it and it has made a HUGE difference to my life. Only have very mild depression symptoms now, and sleep better at night. Bought the powder to get the dose right, looks like 100mg suits my 50 kg frame. Only bad thing is the packaging. The 10 grams of powder is lost in the large packet, very hard to get it out and measure the same dose every night. I purchased miniature measuring spoons from ebay and they make life much easier. Sort out the correct spoon for your dosage with the scales then off you go. Can be tricky getting it in and out of the bag, often get powder everywhere, but usually just lick it off. A pill container would work much better for this power.
100mg works well for mood and getting to sleep. Put 100mg in my Pre Workout Powder (Non Stimulant). Don't know if anyone else has tried this or if it was just a coincidence but it made the weights feel considerably lighter and I was able to use more weight than I have in a decade. I will definitely be trying that again. I also cut the bag open and emptied it into an old pill bottle through a small funnel. No wastage. Easy.
Such a good quality product.. packed in the worst bag. Don’t think it’s worth the saving compared to the caps. I first tried it to repair a melted brain after a heavy weekend but discovered its powers to level everything out day to day. Everything’s a little more manageable. It also helps me sleep deeper and improves my already vice dreaming.
The 10mg powder takes up about 5% of the bag it comes it, meaning you get a greater volume of the powder on your hand than in the spoon your using to find the powder at the bottom of the package. Since dosages are really small, I imagine most of the powder will be wasted. Also the 5-htp powder doesn't seem to dissolve or mix with liquids making it difficult to take. Other than the terrible packaging, the powder itself seems to be of good quality. Recommend it be repackaged in a bag 1/10th of the size, or alternatively, buy the capsules.
