  • 5htp helps me with sleeping and mood

    Posted by Tina on 10th Jun 2016

    I have ptsd, depression & anxiety as a result of long term abusive relationships and anti depressants dull my spirit, but 5htp helps me with sleeping and mood. There’s not a person in my life who doesn’t notice the positive change this has in me.

  • I highly recommend anyone

    Posted by Jan on 13th May 2016

    I have been taking 5Htp for several years now (not all the same brand) I find it keeps me well balanced with no flare up of moods, in a sense, keeps you on a “even keel”. I highly recommend anyone that has that frustrating feeling that nothing is going right for you. I think you need to take them a month or so to get the benefit from taking them. Also helps with my sleeping and general well being..
