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

Makes you sleep like a baby. Be careful not to have too much at first (stick to 50-100mg) otherwise you might experience some bad dreams/panicking. Makes you feel really relaxed the next day and helps curb hunger. I wouldn't say it does it instantaneously but give it a week or two and the benefits will start to kick in. The packet is really annoying and wastes a bit of the product but is so much cheaper than the pill version... So I am conflicted.

Works in a high pressure environment so tried this to see if it would help with sleep and improved. Definitely found it to be helping my sleep and less irritable at work.
Only gripe would be the powder form is fiddly. The pouch is far too big for the amount of powder.

Great quality product but comes in a plastic packet which makes it extremely tough to use all of the powder in the packet (probably 10 to 25% wasted). If not for this I'd give it 5 stars.

I usually take this product before bed as I notice it helps me sleep better and the next day, I feel more at ease.
This product does work and works well. I use it most nights before bed and does work great after a night of drinking, it'll help restore the balance in serotonin and mood.
Product can be a bit pricey, but if you can afford it, you'll enjoy it. Noticeable affects are from the first night, but as your serotonin levels balance out, you won't "feel" much, until you go a few days without it, then you'll be reminded on how it works.

I wouldn't have thought this simple little powder could make such a difference to so dramatically lessen stress levels, by ultimately by being able to secure and maintain a deep and rejuvenating sleeping rhythm. I feel very lucky to have been introduced to this product, and Bulk Nutrients, for such easy and affordable access.
