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:

        I did not experience any change in appetite or any weight loss... nor any effect of any kind (no mood change, etc). It might help for some people, but it didn't do anything for me. At least it didn't have any bad effects, either, which is why I wouldn't give it the bottom rating.

          Comments about Natrol® 5-HTP:

          I read that migraines can be the result of low serotonin levels, so I got this product to stimulate serotonin production. I had been having 1 to 2 migraines a week that would last around 48 hours. One migraine would ruin three days, and if I had two in a week, the whole week was shot. Since I started taking this daily three weeks ago I have not had one migraine. Not ONE!! I could not be happier!!!
