It works! I have used this product for several months and am very pleased with the results. January 13, 2015
Fine Product Good Price Does the job November 23, 2014
50mg caps is not a good idea Vitacost 5HTP is an excellent product in 100mg caps! Reason: By using smaller capsule they have to put in same amount of rice flour + stearic acid (vegetable source) and magnesium stearate into an 50mg capsule. Anti-stick agents should be nicely reduced in proportion, but it cannot be done, think about it, they have to use the same amount of anti-stick substances they use for the 100mg caps. I'm using 3x50mg caps to get some effect. Think again! You ingest twice or 2x the amount of what is NOT 5-HTP by using 50mg caps. Its not the product, but the amount of helper agents they HAVE to put into smaller caps so the 5HTP doesn't stick to capsule walls and get through the necessary manufacturing process. Buy 100mg Vitacost caps, those are excellent and taste good on your tongue. 50mg tastes like rough sand and not your fantastic 100mg caps content at all. November 11, 2014
pleased with this product i like having the 50 mgs dosage so that i can increase or decrease incrementally. it's been about a month and i do feel that seretonin level has been boosted by taking 5 HTP; i am feeling better. November 6, 2013
