What is 5-HTP?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that your body naturally produces from the amino acid L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan is one of the building blocks that form protein and is commonly found in soy products, red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, oat bran, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, spirulina, cheese and dark chocolate.
Our 5-HTP tablet
Our 5-HTP is naturally sourced from Griffonia seeds found in the Griffonia simplicifolia, an African plant that grows well in Central and Western Africa, mainly on mountain slopes. Our 5-HTP tablets are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
We offer our 5-HTP tablets in two strengths; 50mg and 100mg.

As others have mentioned, they crumble and fall apart very easily. Most are OK but there will be the remainders of quite a few at the bottom of the packet. Seems like the problem has not been rectified. Doubt I will order again.
After having 2 orders crumble to dust in the bottom of the packet and complaining twice I have been assured that this problem has been rectified. So far so good but will reserve judgement until I know this is not going to happen again. Not really good enough for a company that I trust and rely on
Excellent product. Honest product- and works well. Good, also good with CQ10.
As a longstanding customer, I was quite shocked to find that despite my complaint when last ordered, and complaints form other customers, the 5-HTB pills remained un-coated and prone to disintegrating upon touch. I complained again but received NO response.
Ordered a bag of 500. Half of the bag some to be disintegrating pick some out the bag for them to crumble in your hand. Never had any issues before till now.
