5-HTP Manages Stress and keeps me calm Review by
  • star

I’ve been taking 5-HTP for a few years now and Wouldnt want to be without it. Keeps me calm and manages stress, usual day to day stress, nothing major just work and kids and being a busy mum and taking 150mg a day every day makes the days so much more pleasant and definitely sleep better. I do go off it now and then to give my body a rest, to reset it, but usually within a month I’m noticing the change without and I’m ordering more!! Fantastic product.

Biobalance you do some of the best supplements, please take a look at these containers and change them to something chemically stable

This is an excellent 5HTP. I notice the difference from other 'good quality' 5 HTPs. However when I opened the container and took the pills it's like ingesting a strong noxious plastic off-gassing smell. I've transferred the pills to a glass container, but they've already absorbed this smell. And no it's not the smell of the pills, it's a very noticeable plastic chemical smell.

Really helps me Review by
  • star

I have been taking this 5htp on and off for over a year. It has really helped me sleep better, easier to fall asleep initially and I stay asleep all night long. Every now and then I feel a bit down and get ‘the blues’, this product also helps me with this. I have found that I need to take a break from taking it every now and then as my body seems to get used to it and it isn’t as effective, but after a month or so off it seems to work as well as it did the first time taking it. I highly recommend this product, it’s helped me so much and I like that it’s natural as opposed to what the doctors may prescribe for similar issues.

Did the opposite of what I was hoping for. Review by

I have suffered from depression and anxiety since I was a teenager. Over the years I have tried many natural products and unfortunately this product actually exacerbated my symptoms instead of relieving them. Within a week of starting them I was unable to leave the house, crying uncontrollably etc so I stopped taking them. My partner always oversees any products I try just so I have someone else's perspective on the outcome and he was noticed my reaction even after a couple of days but I persisted for a week. 5 HTP is not for me.

I highly recommend if you have mood issues Review by
  • star

I suffer from chronic depression but I'm unable to take normal SSRI anti-depressants. I had a terrible time coping before I discovered 5HTP, I couldn't sleep, I had no happy days, and believe me it's extremely hard to live in a permanent state of low mood. Then someone suggested I try 5HTP and the sun came out. It took a while to find a good dose, but now I have good days, I still have low days, but it's not every day. And I appreciate this specific bran of 5HTP because they make the effort to make the "dose" consistent, which isn't always the case with other brands, and that consistency keeps my mood fairly consistent as well. I take it in the morning and I have another thing (melatonin) to help me sleep, but I notice if I miscalculate the budget and end up a few days without the 5HTP, at about day three my sleep is bad as well. I honestly couldn't function without 5HTP. I'd recommend it and this site to anyone with mood and sleep issues.

I am going through menopause which has been the cruelest time of my life. Awful mood swings, anger, frustration, irritability, insomnia, lack of motivation, fatigue, muscle pain, zero libido, oh the list goes on!
I have been taking this for around 5 months and noticed myself 'calming down' within the first month of taking it. I still have some awake times in the night, but I can put this down to the exact time of the month and it is like clockwork! Most of my other symptoms, the swollen & bloated tummy, the enlarged, tender breasts, the headaches and foul moods have pretty much disappeared! Thank goodness! I feel I can deal with things in a calm and more thought about manner. I have also made changes to my diet, not big ones, I still love coffee, wine & chocolate, but really taking note of the foods my body doesn't like so much and limiting or omitting them completely.
This all seems to be working in my favour. I have days where I feel lethargic and have zero energy, but I allow myself to just take it easy and do something nice for myself as I lead a busy & quite full on lifestyle every other day. So, it is just about listening to your body and respecting it. I also like the fact it is natural.

I am very pleased with this product. I feel much more relaxed during the day and am going to sleep (and staying asleep) at night, consequently I am a much nicer person to be around - according to my husband! I haven't suffered any side effects, I take 150mg in the morning which gives me a calm day then when I go to bed the melatonin clicks in and hey presto!. I certainly recommend 5-HTP.

Amazing Review by
  • star

I'm so pleased with this product, after watching reviews on you tube as an alternative to anti depressants and sleep medication I was interested in trying. It's been over 6months now, I notice when I run out and go a week or so without that my mood is affected. I take two 150mg at night half hour before sleeping. Promotes a good night's rest. It doesn't knock me out like medication. And wake up non drowsy. My rheumatologist seemed pleased I had found success with this suppliment to help manage the side effects of mood swings and depression from autoimmune drugs I am taking.

Uncertain Review by
  • star

I bought this product to help with mood and stress, and had heard it is also helps for sleep which is a bonus. I took one about 4 hours before bed, and then one more an hour before bed (I did it this way as a friend said that if taken during the day it could cause drowsiness)
I couldnt sleep for hours and then it was only dozing with hectic dreams with kind of sore stomach. I normally fall asleep easily and was exhausted before going to bed. So needless to say I felt pretty awful the next day and I won't test it out again, worst sleep ever and to add I didn't eat or drink anything that could have caused hyperactivity.

A lot of the reviews for this are very positive, so I dont want to say it's a bad product or dont try it, possibly it just doesn't gel with me specifically. I have done research and some people do seem to get the opposite effect. Give it a try, might be that it is great for you.

Absolutely worth it!!! Review by
  • star

I bought the 5HTP because I was going through a stressful period and struggled to sleep. It has been a great help with balancing my mood and helps me sleep. I would definitely recommend this product and as mentioned before also great for sugar cravings. The first few days I had to take it in the morning because it kept me awake, but after 5 days I found that it made me very sleepy so now I take it at night. I am ready for bed about an hour after taking it and sleep really well
