I just started using 5-HTP for a few days and I have felt more 'emotionally balanced' and less irritable, in a calm and rational state of mind to deal with things. The only reason why I have not given 5 stars is that a side effect of 5-HTP is gastro-intestinal upset and I experienced those. As I have found out you can reduce those effects by breaking the capsule open and taken a smaller portion of 5-HTP and mixing it with water. Some articles also advice to take 5-HTP with meals to reduce the side-effects. Once I put these measures into place, it worked like a charm and I am now able to reap the full benefits of 5-HTP.
