  • A natural not synthetic source and the purest grade available
  • Extracted from 800mg of griffonia seeds
  • A sustainably harvested source, only the highest grade seed selected
  • A well researched nutrient, over 15 published studies

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.

"Really works for insomnia "
By , 10 Apr 2019
I take this for insomnia and have found it to be very helpful. I have tried everything in the past, including tryptophan at a higher dose, but interestingly the lower dose works better for me. I now take 300 mg. I find it relaxes me and I can get back to sleep after I wake up during the night. It’s a natural remedy and I am very satisfied with it.

"Too Big To Swallow"
By , 13 Mar 2019
Recommend to a friend: Don't know
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty in swallowing our tablets. We do formulate our products to be as small as possible, whilst still providing a relevant level of the nutrients required. Our research has suggested that our customers prefer to take fewer tablets which is why they are often rather large in size. It would be perfectly fine to crush the tablets into a powder if this makes it easier for you to consume them. You may wish to use a pestle and mortar to do this, or a pill crusher which are often available from pharmacies.

For future reference we are able to send out a sample of any of our tablets / capsules (excluding THRs) should you wish to assess the size of them.

"Excellent vitamin "
By , 23 Feb 2019
I’ve been taking this 5htp for several years now as I had a complete hysterectomy when I was only 31 and went on to developer hypothyroidisim. Anyway, if anyone knows they symptoms of either will now that you can be susceptible to low mood and sleeplessness. I count on the product and have never had to take an**********nt in my life because of it. If only GPs would suggest this product to patients instead of sticking so many on medication
