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.

My doctor told me to take one pill before dinner and one before bedtime. FANTASTIC! If you think 5-HTP is only for getting rid of depression and to get you in a good mood or help you to sleep, think again. 5-HTP does more than that. Since serotonin levels get to their desirable point. Next, the whole body is in perfect communication thanks to the full set of neurotransmitters. The immune system also starts working at its best and there you go. In a few weeks, everything seems to be and feel like you are getting better and better. Do not forget to eat well and drink a good number of glasses of water. This is only my experience and I been taking 5-HTP for a year and a half and planning to keep it in my life.

Wonderful for people that love a good night sleep and a positive mood, also for those who wake up feeling refreshed. An adult male can take 2 each night without problems. A great addition for anyone. eVitamins does an excellent job in delivering the product in time.
