This unique product is a combination of natural L-5-hydroxytryptophan (L-5-HTP), Vitamins B-6 and C, and bioflavonoids. Clinical studies indicate that administration of L-5-HTP enhances synthesis of serotonin in the brain. Vitamin B-6 is the cofactor for enzymes that convert L-tryptophan to serotonin, and Vitamin C catalyzes the hydroxylation of tryptophan to serotonin. In addition, this product is enterically coated to enable the capsules to bypass enzymes in the stomach which would convert L-5-HTP to serotonin prematurely (before reaching the central nervous system). The L-5-HTP in this product is a natural extract of the Griffonia bean, not produced synthetically or by a fermentation process.

I love this product, and I believe this brand (solaray) has worked better for me then just buying brands from walgreens or cvs. I am very happy with this product. it has helped improve my mood and makes me feel more positive. the first two days I felt a little drowsy off them but that effect did not last for me. I take them 3 times a day, one pill at a time, and the definitely perk me up. I have had a lot of problems with anxiety, and just feeling worn down, and this has made a significant improvement and id recommend them to anyone who feels the same. the caps are smooth and easy to swallow, and have a pleasant smell. this came in the mail quickly and on time. if youre just looking for something to uplift you a little bit this may be right for you.
I have used 5-HTP for migraine prevention. For me, 100mg in the morning and 100mg at bedtime has proved over at least 10 years to do the job.
This helps me to fall asleep when all else fails. I think that it is a great product and will buy again.
