  • What buyers say about NOW Supplements, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) 50 mg, Neurotransmitter Support*, 180 Veg Capsules

    If you take any serotonin boosters, make sure to check for interactions first. For me, it has worked wonders. I sleep well, I feel better, and I farted rainbows all through this horrible election cycle.

    I have been able to get rid of my depression after adding a Super B Complex to my diet a month ago.

    I have used Now Foods 5-HTP for years to help with my mood, but you should check with a doctor if you are trying it for the first time.

    They need to evaluate the mixture of their products and they need to find a nutritionist to do that. There are some users of this particular product that swear by it, and it works for them, but I don't know who sits down with them to decide what should go in it.

    I was looking for a natural appetite suppressant that would make me sleepy, and these came to mind, because it said that a side effect of an increased positive mood is less appetite.
