Helps Ease Anxiety and OCD Thoughts and Rituals

Purchased at iHerb

I have taken this brand of 5-HTP for years and it has greatly improved my quality of life. It cured my insomnia and I am now able to sleep through the night. It has helped immensely in lessening my depression. It also helps ease anxiety as well as OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) thoughts and rituals. In some ways, it works immediately - The first time that I took the 5-HTP, in about 30 minutes, I felt euphoric - happy, relaxed, and sleepy. I slept through the night, and still do. It was a relief to know that it worked that fast. It takes maybe three to four weeks to notice more permanent changes in mood, like an all-day improvement in depression, instead of the immediate effect that it has after you take it because it is leveling out the seratonin/melatonin levels in the brain. It has been compared to traditional anti-depressants, with relatively no side effects. For a week or two you may have intense and vivid dreams. I also had increased headaches for the first week or two, but after that it significantly reduced my migraines. The recommended time to take 5-HTP is about half an hour to an hour before bedtime. I used to take only 100 mg a day, but have started taking the 200 mg capsules. I don't really notice a huge difference between the two, except that maybe my body tolerates the lower dose better. Sometimes the 200 mg capsule feels like too much and I get tense if I don't get to sleep right away. I fully recommend this product because it really has done wonders for me.
