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 Fast Dissolve - Wild Berry:

      Just wanted to post my review out there hoping to at least make one person more informative...Keep in mind that 5-htp increases your seratonin levels. It doesn't maintain a higher level of seratonin in you, just boosts it temporarily.

      I first started taking it in hopes to make me laugh and smile a bit more than normal, relieving a bit of stress, make myself sleep better at night, be a bit more outgoing due to the increased levels of seratonin. Overall, I am on the way to where I want to be in life, I just wanted something to enhance my mood at where I am currently at now.

      So I began taking only 100mg (one pill) a day in the mornings because I am a lightweight and prefer to start light. At first, it kicked in almost immediatly and I felt euphorically good!! After a few days after taking it in the morning, I began to feel awesome for a few hours after taking it (read somewhere the half-life of this is ONLY 90 MINS!!!) and then it wore off in mid afternoon and I just felt fatigued, emotionless, and a cloudy feeling. I didn't want to continue that so instead of taking a second one in the afternoon, I decided to take it at night before bed. Excellent!!! I did have quite vivid dreams that were intense and great dreams, plus when I woke up in the morning I had an extreme feeling of inner harmony and would seem to always have a good song stuck in my head lol. But once again, that feeling would only last in the morning............

      So I decided to get the 200mg time released capsules thinking this is a wonder drug and everyone should have it. I started taking that in the morning which NEVER ONCE WORKED. It just made me tired all day and somewhat cloudy minded. So I just figured maybe it was the timing of the day I took it and it didn't release as much as quick (the label on the 200mg one says promotes better sleep). I tried taking it at night which gave me the dreams I previously got, however I felt restless every night I took these so that ended. At this point of my experimentation, two weeks have passed. I stopped taking the 200mg ones, and now I was just taking the 100mg every now and then......it seems like now when I take them, I temporarily feel good but for the rest of the day I feel cloudy and emotionless.

      BOTTOM LINE: If you want to put a band aid on your issue ONLY FOR A FEW DAYS, this stuff will bring up your mood and will work. Beyond that, you're going to experience fluctuations of your seratonin (part good, mostly side effects). If you do it, I recommend 100mg (non-time released) for the short periods.

      I am going to try St. John's Wort next...it seems like that is the one for me....

      P.S. Picture 5-htp being like pouring water in a bucket with a hole in it always trying to keep the water level at the precise length (with your mood/seratonin fluctuating). Too much, things go wrong, too little things to wrong...not worth it for the long run.

      Reason I mention that is 5-htp will fill up your tank but from what I hear St John's Wort is the type that doesn't increase the levels, but instead acts like a SSRI and keeps your seratonin at or below normal but allows what you got to be utilized more efficiently.

      **Not a doctor, just my personal experience

      You want a full tank or better utilization of what you got?

        Comments about Natrol® 5-HTP 100mg Fast Dissolve - Wild Berry:

        I use the product daily, twice a day. Once after breakfast and then again after supper. It helps me to stay calm and relaxed throughout the day and allows me to peacefully and deeply sleep through the night. When I wake I feel well-rested and ready to begin my day. I usually take this product when I feel low as I used to take meds but now when I feel off I begin taking 5-htp and I immediately begin to feel better. Most of the time I can take it for a couple of weeks and then feel ok and not take it for 3-4 months. Other times I may need to continue taking it for an entire month and then I won't feel the need to take it again for a few months still. This is a wonderful product and I am constantly talking to people about how great I feel about this product. Thanks GNC!

            The product works, but most of the tablets were broken and dust at the bottom of the bottle. If you buy it in a store, maybe this won't happen. But buying online, they were 50% broken by the time they arrived.

              This is such a great product. I've tried many different types of 5htp tablets and nothing works as well as this. I've literally noticed a difference in mood within 20-30 minutes. I just wish there were a larger mg amount available in this because you end up taking 2-3 a day. I work front desk... we need all the serotonin we can get!

              I tried this product for two weeks. My hair was braided the entire time but when I went to wash it after taking the braids out, I ran my hands through my hair and clumps of hair came out. Never had that issue until I started using this product. But it could just be that Ive been really stressed out for the past two months. No serious medical conditions. May be a bit bipolar but nothing serious. I should add that the product did work unless the placebo effect got a hold on me. -Love
