5-HTP Info

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) supplements are sourced from wild crafted seeds of the plant Griffonia simplicifolia - native to Central and West Africa. 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter important for healthy sleep wake cycles and moods. It may support levels of serotonin in the body.

Many aspects of our health are influenced by serotonin, including our digestive tract, sleep-wake cycle, appetite, sex drive, mood, and many other areas, which are being researched.

5-HTP may be beneficial to many but does come with precautions. As well as discussing whether 5-HTP is right for you with a health practitioner, we encourage low doses to begin with (50mg). Find out more in our blog.

5-HTP Benefits

Clinical studies comparing 5-HTP with prescription drugs have shown identical results using the standard depression scale with human study groups. Other studies have demonstrated the benefits of 5-HTP supplementation in cases of anxiety, panic disorder, sleep difficulties, and weight management problems. Some cases of tinnitus may also benefit.

5-HTP Side Effects

Temporary digestive upsets can occur if 5-HTP is not taken with food.

Vivid dreams or nightmares can happen while the body adjusts to higher serotonin levels initially.

Contraindicated for children, pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and those with cardiovascular, kidney or liver disease.

People taking medication for Parkinson’s disease, on SSRI drugs (e.g. Prozac) or any of the group of MAOI antidepressants should not supplement 5-HTP as well. Check with your doctor if you’re not sure what class of medication you’re taking.

Product Reviews

  • Huge improvement


    When I decided to purchase these it was as a last resort because I had recently tried antidepressants and found they made me feel worse. These have helped me be able to function normally in everyday life where before I was too depressed to do much apart from watch Netflix and cry. It is amazing to feel again and to be able to smile and laugh genuinely. These should be the first option before antidepressants in my opinion.



  • Excellent product


    My otherhalf takes these nightly as he suffers from post infection IBS - which gives him shocking insomnia and restless legs. This gets him to sleep, and unless he's eaten something he shouldn't, keeps him asleep. I occasionally use these tablets if I have done a hard workout and am stiff and sore, they allow me to sleep easily and I don't wake up with a crick in my neck. They do give me crazy vivid dreams! But I consider that a bonus ;p



  • My experience


    I have chronic sleep issues and have used this product to help with this. While I find it does help with sleep I also find that I get bad headaches and have very vivid dreams when I take it. I won’t continue with it and hope to find something else for sleep,
