Healthspan’s 5-HTP 100mg is a natural way of increasing your body’s levels of 5-HTP. Each tablet provides 100mg of 5-HTP along with other important nutrients including vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin C, zinc, folic acid and biotin.

5-Hydroxytryptophan, more commonly known as 5-HTP, is derived from the amino acid l-tryptophan. In the body 5-HTP is converted into the brain chemical messenger serotonin. The 5-HTP used in Healthspan’s 5-HTP 100mg is sourced exclusively from the seeds of the West African Griffonia simplicifolia tree, the only natural source available.

These nutrients have been included for their numerous associated benefits, none more so than vitamin B3. B6 and zinc which support normal psychological and neurological functions.

Years ago I was prescribed L-tryptophan by my doctor for low mood. Without warning Merck stopped manufacturing it and then later doctors were told they were not permitted to prescribe it. 5-HTP from Healthspan was a life saver for me!

22 July 2014

It helps me to sleep better when i take it at bedtime. It helps with anxiety.

22 July 2014

Both my wife and I use this product, and it has helped us through a very rough year.

22 July 2014

difficult to prove but feel it helps my mood

21 July 2014

I have used healthspan's service for many years. These days I find the range of products somewhat bewildering, and buying appropriately - according to my health and budget - has become increasingly difficult. I always try to buy in sales, but it does irritate when products I've just bought subsequently go on sale or are added to the sale halfway through it. I think in such circumstances you should give your long term, loyal customers an automatic credit.

21 July 2014

Believe the hype, take as suggested, seems to be effective: will do for me,

21 July 2014

I feel more alert and think more clearly, a bonus for an 80 year old....

21 July 2014

An easy to use website.

21 July 2014

The company, products, and quality are excellent. I have no further need for anything, as my Husband is now on care.
Thank you for past service.

These tablets definitely pick you up in moments of mild depression and stressful times. I have recommended them to several of my friends and they have helped get them through low times. The trouble is they usually take mine!

I was on anti depressants and came off them. But found that I needed something to help with anxiety and depression. A friend recommended 5-HTP. and I have to say I have found them to be excellent. They keep my mood up so I am able to function properly.

Thank you for your review - It's always a pleasure to hear that you are feeling the benefits of our 5-HTP.

I have used Healthspan for years now and have always found their service to be first class. The price of products is very competitive with high street brands, but I particularly like the newsletter issued which gives information about their products. I have recommended Healthspan to others, some of whom I believe have used their service.

18 June 2014

Improved my mood very much

Have been prescribed medication by GP for a short period of anxiety I experienced in December last year, although I am on a mimimal dose, and am now gradually coming off same, I stopped taking the 5-HTP whilst taking the prescribed tablets. Therefore I am not really able to comment at present.

14 June 2014

great delivery timing and packaging

13 June 2014

relieves depression, after a while seems not to work, so I stop it and start again.

13 June 2014

Having suffered a period of depression which was successfully treated by my GP originally, following which I purchased these and found they are really helpful in keeping it in check.

12 June 2014

Not sure yet. This kind of product can take a while before any noticeable change is observable. Needed to boost serotonin levels.

11 June 2014

Prompt service, handy packages fit through letter box, just wish they had not changed the tablet packaging to the dreaded foil blister packs. They are difficult to get in and out of the box, especially when you have 4 different ones to take, what was wrong with the old flat tubs?

11 June 2014

Husband has had problems sleeping for years, now he is able to both fall asleep and more importantly, stay asleep all night.

Thank you for your review - It's great to hear the product is working for your husband.

I would not be able to cope with the sudden death of my son if my friend had not advised me to try 5HTP.The medical profession could only offer me anti depressants which I did not want to take mainly because of the side effects.5HTP help me stand up and find some joy in life.
