The full name of 5 HTP is 5-Hydroxytryptophan, which is a natural compound that our bodies make from the amino acid, tryptophan. 5-HTP is converted in the brain, into serotonin, which acts as a brain chemical messenger.
5 HTP is a well researched nutrient with over 15 published studies supporting its use. 5 HTP tablets are now a top-selling supplement in the USA and its long history of use has shown it to have an excellent safety record.

Nature’s Best insist on the purest grade available, extracted from the seeds of a tree called Griffonia Simplicifolia and not from synthetic versions. Each tablet therefore provides 100mg of pure 5-HTP, a level which matches that used in published studies.

Twice the strength of many brands
And a great alternative to St John’s Wort

Natural not synthetic source
And the purest grade available

A well researched nutrient
Over 15 published studies.

5 Htp HjæLper På Fibromyalgismerter

By Tine Koedt - 3rd November 2014

Why do you use this product 5-HTP tablets 100mg ?

Jeg tager 5 HTP da jeg har kroniske smerter som følge af fibromyalgi. Jeg læste om midlet i en artikel af "Radiodoktoren", og bestemte mig for at prøve det. Før da havde jeg prøvet 5 forskellige typer medicin som enten ikke havde effekt eller gav mig kraftige bivirkninger. 5 HTP giver mig en mærkbar bedre nattesøvn og tager lidt af smerterne, men fjerner dem dog ikke helt. Og så har jeg næsten ingen bivirkninger, er bare en lille smule søvnig, men det er langt at foretrække fremfor at have kraftige smerter. Jeg opnåede først effekt da jeg trappede op til 3 x 100 mg.

Great Help For Low Mood Or Sleep Problems.

By SKF - 22nd October 2014

Why do you use this product 5-HTP tablets 100mg ?


I have suffered with low mood, anxiety and sleep problems since I was a teenager. I am so happy I came across someone using 5-HTP as I'd never heard of it but they were using it for similar problems and seemed to be happy with the outcome of taking it.

I ordered my first tablets from natures best since they seemed to be the only website offering such a strength in tablet. I take them usually on an evening after a meal and I find getting to sleep so much easier, my thoughts seem to slow down and not keep me up over thinking. This in turn has a great effect on my general mental health because I'm getting a better quality of sleep and feel better in mood the following day.
I also take them on a morning instead if I know I'm going to be faced with situations that might provoke my anxiety and it does seem to help.
All in all, a great product!

Didn'T Get Immediate Results But Now Very Pleased

By J Williams - 9th June 2014

I decided to try 5-HTP because of my chronic insomnia of the early waking variety (i.e. I wake in the early hours and cannot go back to sleep). I've been suffering from anxiety for a several years & have tried a number of antidepressants but couldn't tolerate the side effects. I am in my third month of taking 2 tablets at night and, although it didn't improve the insomnia, somewhere during the second month I started to notice that I was feeling less anxious. Now into my third month of taking the 5-HTP I'm feeling so much better, the anxiety is MUCH better and now I'm starting to be able to go back to sleep when I wake. I'm delighted and definitely recommend trying this products. I have tried 5-HTP in the past but I took only 1 tablet and for less than a month before deciding it didn't work for me, so I suggest persistence & maybe a higher than the minimum dose.

I have used these tablets once a day for a few months now and they really help me to sleep without any side effects the next day. I have tried many different herbal sleep aids, they have all either not worked or made me groggy next morning. For best results I take one about half an hour before bedtime. Nature's Best tablets are very smooth and easy to swallow compared to other brands of 5 HTP.

Fantastic

By A Lake - 23rd January 2014

I started using 5-HTP after a long period of feeling gradually more and more depressed. I researched 5-htp and ordered it on the spur of the moment whilst having a particularly tearful day. I really couldn't see how it could help as I had previously taken anti-depressants for a year with no effect. After only a couple of days of taking these my mood was lifted. After a week I felt better than I had for a long time. I absolutely swear by these tablets. I am now 100% convinced that my brain just doesn't produce enough seratonin. These have been a god send for me.I do have very vivid dreams but not bad dreams so another plus for me really.

Use With St John'S Wort?

By Anonymous - 27th May 2013

Please can you tell me if 5-HTP can be taken at the same time as St John' Wort?

Recommend to a friend: Yes

Our Response: Thanks you for taking the time to contact us. St John's Wort and 5HTP are both thought to have similar effects on the body and therefore we would not advise that they are used at the same time. It would be preferable to choose one and try it for two months before reviewing your symptoms and deciding if a change is necessary. Nor would we advise the use of either product with prescribed anti-depressant medications. If your symptoms persist, it is advisable to consult your GP.

Wide Awake

By lesh patty - 1st September 2012

I have previously used a different brand of 5htp for insomnia, I bought this brand as it was cheaper and having read the reviews was impressed. This decision was with regret! The pills did not help me sleep at all which then made me irritable. I generally like natures best, excellent service and products normally but I would not buy this again nor recommend it.
Although the product seems like great value, it is not much value when it fails to work, sorry.

Deep Sleep

By Christopher Harle - 13th May 2012

Why do you use this product 5-HTP tablets 100mg ?


I cope with stress badly, and am often tired. I get frustrated with my inability to organise and hold many things in my head at once. So, I am testing 5-HTP to see if it can lift my thoughts and give me a better night's sleep!

Results? I've taken it 1/2 hour before bedtime (as recommended) and boy do I sleep heavy. I'm 64, so I need to empty my bladder 3 times a night. My brain is still receving the message, but I stagger as I force myself to visit the little room. So far this trial shows me that 5-HTP does give me a deeper sleep. And I fall asleep quickly again after my nightly visit.

If your depression isn't serotonin based, then maybe it won't work on you. Take advice first, don't just take my word for it. I wish you Good Health.
