I bought it for my mom who has an anxiety. It is a n active form of tryptophane and is easier absorbed. I give 1 capsule before the evening meal. It brings a better mood to my mom. (She also takes GABA for anxiety). Be careful, do not take 5-HTP if your serotonin level is normal. Like it if it's helpful,please
Really great product. Helps me calm down and sleep better. This product is the best I have tried; over decades I have tried dozens of different things. I don't take it constantly, I have a break every now and then when sleep has improved. When I can’t sleep normally, I used 1 caps before I go to sleep and it’s make me more relaxed and help my body generate myself melatonin.
I recently started taking Jarrow Formulas, 5-HTP, and I have been very impressed with the results. 5-HTP is an amino acid that is naturally converted in the body into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that supports mood and sleep. The 50 mg dose in each veggie capsule is just right for me, and I appreciate the fact that the capsules are easy to swallow and free from gluten, dairy, and soy. Jarrow Formulas is a well-respected brand, and I feel confident in the quality of their products. After taking Jarrow Formulas, 5-HTP, for a few weeks, I have noticed an improvement in my ability to manage stress and get a good night's sleep. Overall, I would highly recommend Jarrow Formulas, 5-HTP, to anyone looking for a natural and effective supplement to support mood and sleep.
I like Jarrow products because I feel they have quality ingredients. The benefits are it helps me with cravings and sleep; mood and stress as well. I have used it off and on for years and am happy with it. I like the fact that it is 50mg so I can start with that and increase it if needed.
This is a high quality formation of 5-HTP, more formally known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan. NIH research has shown that intestinal absorption of 5-HTP does not require the presence of a transport molecule, and is not affected by the presence of other amino acids; therefore it may be taken with meals without reducing its effectiveness. Unlike L-tryptophan, 5-HTP cannot be shunted into niacin or protein production. All of which means, for many, including myself, that 5-HTP provides a gentle reliable pathway to relaxation and sleep. Of course, there are many other benefits of 5-HTP (see the NIH website and others for more information).
Jarrow formulas has never disappointed me. I use this 5HTP at least once a day to help calm my anxiety, improve my mood, help with cravings, and relax after a stressful day! It is wonderful!
Easy to take, no taste, no after burps or stomach upset, great quality, no gluten or dairy, slim, veggie capsules and they really helped with moods. Definitely ordering again!
This supplement is likely to produce a positive effect on your sleep, mood, anxiety, appetite, and pain sensation. It is most certainly worth a try.
we needed this size dosage and it's been helping my husband sleep so that's an incredible benefit!! sleep = better mood and reduced stress.
Great mood uplifter :) I don't use it regularly. I Use it in days when I'm down, which is connected to low serotonin. works well in lifting my mood.
