Product Information

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.

Take for up to 3 months and then stop for a month and review. Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

"Definitely Worth Trying"
By LuLu , 11 Feb 2020
I have only recently started taking this as an alternative to a*************.
I am already having a better nights sleep, much more restful too. Not noticed a mood improvement as such but it is early days and I am pleased that I took the plunge and ordered these.

"This product was extremely effective if you have low serotonin "
By Jane Perry , 31 Jan 2020
Some peolpe who have digestive inflammation or part of their intestines removed can suffer low moods. This is because 95% of the bodies serotonin is made in the gut. So taking this product has been helpful levelling this up. HOWEVER ,it can affect your kidneys so a kidney function blood test would be advisable before and after you have taken it for a while will show if it is having an adverse effect on your kidneys.
Recommend to a friend: Yes
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I am not aware of any evidence to suggest that 5HTP may have an adverse effect on the kidneys. However, it is always advisable for anyone with a medical concern to discuss the use of supplements with their doctor, who is best placed to advise them.
