"First time for me to use 5- HTP ever and I have to say I have liked the difference. I seem to have a better outlook and are more happy about my day. I have now started a couple of friends to give them a try."
"I take 200 mg 20 minutes before eating each of three meals per day for help with appetite control based on info I read on the Dr. Oz website. (The website info states you should only use this for up to 12 weeks in this way.) I am pleased to see positive results in decreased appetite and as a bonus it has great effect on my mood also!"
