    It is particularly useful to have the 5Htp in 50mg capsules. Many other companies do only 100mg.

    Good for anxiety, but hasn't helped my depression.

    Our Response:

    Hi - some people find this product helps, some don't. It depends on a number of neurotransmitters and this will affect how effective one product is compared to another. If you email [email protected], she will be happy to help you find an effective solution.

    I have been using this product for many years after coming off a traditional anti-depressant. The Cytoplan 5htp definitely performs better than plain 5htp from cheaper sources. I also like the fact that it comes in 50mg capsules, enabling you to reduce gradually over time.
