    Health Notes

    5-HTP

    5-HTP
    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

            Comments about Natrol® 5-HTP 100mg Time Release:

            I originally bought this because my partner was suffering unbearable insomnia that was only helped by pretty intense anti-anxiety prescriptions.

            He started to take this, it took about a week to really help him. I tried it one night when I was stressed and couldn't sleep, it started working right away for me.

            We both started taking it routinely, it was like the happiness reset button.

            We'd both been under a lot of pressure, creating major stress and anxiety for a long time. We used it for about 2 weeks, then ran out. There was no detox phase, or issues when we stopped taking it (we're buying more pronto, but wanted to make sure it wasn't addictive first).
            We both took it at night. It helps to give you a nice peaceful happy feeling, no weird side effects, no crashing.

            I'd highly recommend this to anyone who's struggling with stress and anxiety.
