Webber Naturals 5-HTP helps with depression: Used clinically for over 30 years, numerous clinical trials indicate that 5-HTP may be as effective as certain antidepressant drugs in treating individuals with mild to moderate depression. Depressed patients who received 100 mg of 5-HTP, three times daily, showed at least a 50% improvement in their symptoms.
Webber Naturals 5-HTP improves sleep quality: Serotonin is an important initiator of sleep. As an immediate precursor to serotonin, 5-HTP has been shown to produce good results in promoting and maintaining sleep as well as increasing sleep quality.
Webber Naturals 5-HTP manages obesity: Preliminary evidence suggests that oral administration of 5-HTP may help to reduce appetite by promoting satiety-the feeling of fullness - leading to reduction in caloric intake and weight in obese patients.
Webber Naturals 5-HTP is enteric coated to minimize any potential gastric discomfort. Consult a physician before use if taking serotonergic drugs or during use if gastrointestinal symptoms occur. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have eosinophilia myalgia syndrome.

I've been taking this for two weeks now. I used to suffer from severe mood swings/depression, since the age of 8; but didn't want to rely on depression medications. I've noticed that I wake up happy and can focus more, while working out. Make sure to cycle it without negative side effects for long time use.

This product is an excellent option for anyone dealing with elevated stress levels or mild to moderate forms of depression. I began using this product 2 weeks ago. The effects are subtle at first but became more apparent after 5 days. Please consult a clinician/physician before consuming 5-HTP, just incase you already taking a variation of an SSRI. I recommend this to anyone, though it should not replace clinical/counseling therapy (if needed).

I was not quite sure what to expect. You read all about the benefits, but you can never be sure how it will work for YOU. But I was pleasantly surprised. It really helped bring me out of a funk I had been in. I had been under more stress than normal and found I couldn't quite bring myself to feel energized, calm, truly happy, etc. This seriously helped! And right away too. I did some more research and people should also know that with amino acids, you don't have to keep taking them once you find they benefit you. Instead, put them away until you feel the need for them again (i.e. they can become depleted due to numerous factors so it is possible to become deficient again). After two days I have stopped taking them! If you are eating (and properly digesting) enough protein, you will find you need less of the amino acids. But I love knowing that I have this in my cupboard if I need it.
