    About this product

    What is 5-Htp With Vitamin B?


    5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. 5-HTP gets converted to the the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Serotonin plays a significant role in helping to control mood and a lesser role in supporting sleep as it serves a precursor to melatonin. B vitamins play a role in proper functioning in the central nervous system, as well as mood and energy support.

    I began taking 5HTP, with vitamin B6, in order to curb the cravings for nicotine when I quit smoking. It worked incredibly well! I've tried quitting smoking several times, and my friends used to be scared of me.. I would jump off the handle at everyone. I definitely noticed a difference when taking the pills. I still wanted to smoke, I just wasn't having nearly as many, nor as powerful nicotine fits, and I wasn't stuffing my face with food, as I'd done the other times I'd quit. 15 years of smoking, and more than 10 attempts and this is the stuff that got me through. I stopped taking it, once the cravings stopped. But whenever I'm feeling grumpy, or bummed, for any reason.. I take it again for a bit, until I get back on track with responsible eating, sleeping and exercise.

    I took one capsule every morning for two months. I didn't notice a tremendous difference. I think it helped a little bit but not enough. If I try it again, I will take 2 capsules a day.

    I used Natrol's 200mg time released 5-htp several years ago, and definitely noticed that my attitude was more upbeat and positive. I'm going to try this one again.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe 5-HTP With Vitamin B6 100 MG - 60 Capsules:

          We are taking this at dinner time to help with sleep issues. We both struggle with insomnia and the first night we took it we both dreamed and felt better rested. We have been taking it ever since. I have no problems with feeling hungover in the morning like I had when using benadryl and melatonin did nothing for me.
          Read the insert or go online as this is not for someone that is taking anti-depressive, or psych. meds or drinking large amounts of alchohal as could cause problems.

            5HTP helps me think more clearly about what things are worth getting upset about....I have hormonal issues, so I can get pretty edgy at times. This product not only helps me stay my naturally cheerful self, it helps me think straight! I take it in the mornings, as it doesn't seem to make me sleepy at all. However, many people report it helps them to relax for better sleep. Great size capsule and easy to swallow too!

              It really helps regulating my mood and also with my sleep. I take one before bedtime and it knocks me out and keeps me through at least 3 hours of REM cycle. I also take HGH Dopa to supplement this so I have a FULL night of restful sleep. It helps with my general mood during the day too. 100mg may be too much for you -- try 10mg first and increase dosage as needed.

                  I tried other brands of this and took a separate B6 supplement needed to make this work. I found the combo here is a good value and works better than the other I tried. Helps keep me from feeling depressed. Perhaps it helps me from getting into negative thought patterns as well. I have been using this for about six months and will continue. Good luck feeling better. Don't forget to get some sun and exercise to help you feel good.

                      I decided to buy 5-HTP for my depression. I find that when I take this, I can only get so down. It's almost if you can shrug off life's worries and look forward to the next day. I've also noticed improved quality of sleep. If you have depression or problems staying asleep, you should certainly consider using this.

                          Since taking this, my attitude has improved significantly! The crankiness, mood swings, snappiness and overall "bad attitude" are put in check since I started taking this. I definitely am aware of the difference when I miss a day or two.

                              This product is the best I've tried so far as far as 5HTP is concerned. It helps me inmensely with stress and sadness, it helps my mood to be stable and not go into depression, it helps me sleep better and controls my appetite. I've tried other brands and they don't work as well for me as Vitamin Shoppe brand. It also has the added benefit of vit. B6. I consume 1 100mg cap. at night before bed, and during very stressful times or when sadness wants to kick in, I take an extra one during the day. Works very well. Thank you!

                                  First I just want to say that the 100 mg works great for insomnia and 50 mg for anxiety related challenges. Don't waste your money on any other sleep aid. This will work for you!

                                      What is this used for?

                                      Best Answer: It helps to regulate and support moods. The lows are not as low and the highs still feel great. It can control appetite because it regulates your moods. NOT like a narcotic! Definitely recommend. It is the one supplement I do not skip.

                                      How/when do you take this for insomnia? Does it affect your weight?
                                      Rhonda V on Feb 9, 2013
                                      Best Answer: I take it at night before bed (try one hour before or right at bedtime and then whatever works stick with the same time taking it and going to bed each night to get in a routine). No it does not normally affect weight. If you struggle with weight gain, and have low serotonin levels, it should help you lose it over time by establishing proper serotonin levels-and getting proper rest of course will help too.

                                      I hope it works for you as it does me!!

                                      Has anyone used this while on statins?

                                      Best Answer: I can not answer this question as I do not take any statins. I take this product as a mood enhancer, as with any supplements I use,I consult my doctor. This is a question for her doctor to answer.

                                      Does this work for children with ADHD?
                                      A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 20, 2016
                                      Best Answer: I don't know, as I don't have any children with ADHD; however, I would encourage you to discuss use of the product with your child's pediatrician to see if there are any contraindications for using this product.
