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.

Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Discontinue use and consult a doctor if adverse reactions occur. This product should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet or a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed stated dose. This product is not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any kind of illness. Certain medications may interact with 5-HTP, including those for depression, anxiety and Parkinson's disease, and 5-HTP supplements should not be taken alongside these medications.

Reviewing purely on delivery

I’m reviewing purely on delivery as I’ve only just started the supplements so can’t comment. Delivery was quick & kept advised of updates but unfortunately, as others have said, a lot of the tablets are smashed to dust. I would not buy again for this reason.

Lots of them were squashed in the post.... Maybe the envelopes should be marked 'fragile'?
