I have found taking this once daily for at least 2-3 days helps to improve my mood and I feel a better sense of wellbeing. I have used 5HTP for many years and have found the Higher Nature tablets to be good quality, effective and from a trustworthy brand. I use patches now more often than tablets, but would always trust Higher Nature for tablets.

I buy supplements with the expectation that I won't notice any difference whatsoever. How wrong I was. The first night I took this I slept 3 hours longer than usual, in deep, uninterrupted sleep. Since then it has remained effective. Expensive, but recommended.

A great aid for a more relaxed feeling and happier mood. I take it at bedtime and I believe it helps me relax and sleep better. Great for any kind of depression or to help through difficult or stressful times.
