"i mentioned to my doctor that I was feeling blah, depressed and no energy or desire to do anything. She recommended 5-HTP. I stopped at the local nutrients and supplements store on the way home and took the first capsule that afternoon. By the second day I felt amazing. The black cloud had lifted off my shoulders. I actually woke up wanting to tackle my "to do" list. It's not complete yet because I keep adding to it.:) Atleast I have the energy to keep at it."
"I am very happy with 5-HTP. I have noticed a decrease in my anxiety level. My pre-teen and teen daughters have been using 5-HTP for a few weeks. They take one capsule at suppertime. Their moods have leveled out. This is, of course, next to miraculous. Fewer mood swings, fewer melt downs, fewer dramatics. What's not to love about that?"
"This is not a product that one can evaluate results right away - this the average ratings. I need togive it some more time before giving it higher or lower ratings. However, from a satisfaction and value perspective I rate it good."
"I originally purchased this product with the intention of helping me *feel* better - mood-wise; and it did! Yet, I also discovered it helped me alot to sleep more soundly. So, I now take it only right before going to sleep. I not only sleep better, but the *good* feeling last all day long! Great product NSI! (as always)"
