Sleeping well and feeling good are two of life’s necessities that keep us healthy and happy. But sometimes we need a little help maintaining both, and if we can get relief from a single source, all the better. CanPrev’s 5-HTP 100 is formulated from three key ingredients that work synergistically to promote restful sleep and healthy mood. 5-HTP 100 also works to help relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia (pain, anxiety, morning stiffness and fatigue) and reduce the severity and duration of migraine and tension headaches when taken as a preventative. Can one product do all that? Absolutely.
5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a compound made in the body from the amino acid, tryptophan, that you get from eating protein-rich foods. Once in the 5-HTP state, it goes on to form serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and behaviour, and then is further metabolized into melatonin. Yes, you can depend on tryptophan as a precursor to the development of serotonin, (think protein-rich hot chocolate before bed) but research has shown 5-HTP to be much more efficient at delivering the feel-good hormone to the brain.
Serotonin guided by tryptophan on its own is not able to break through the blood brain barrier (your brain’s defense system for keeping out foreign substances) but 5-HTP can. It acts as the password for serotonin to get past the security gates and flood the brain with its mood lifting and sleep inducing properties.
CanPrev’s 5-HTP 100 is sourced from the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia and enhanced with Vitamin B6 and Magnesium which are important cofactors to help the body convert and utilize 5-HTP.

I use 5htp to assist with anxiety before sleeping if I have been having a long day. Thanks for producing a superior product.
I support products that assist the naturopathy industry. I use to buy another tablet from a bodybuilding company. This pill not tablet has all the benefits I look for in a multivitamin.
CanPrev supplements are, in my opinion... excellent! They are effective, science based & are great value for money! We should be proud this is a Canadian line! Healthy Planet offers the best prices & the best selection!
Tried for a few weeks and absolutely nothing. Didn't help with sleep.
This is truly an effective product! Healthy Planet has the best selection & the best price(s)!
works great my wife loves these makes my life easier ;)
I had read about the benefits of 5-HTP a number of times over recent years. I didn't try it because of the potential for adverse interaction with the prescription medications I take for ME/FMS. However, last month I found a trusted MD's recommendation (Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum) for taking it at bedtime to help with achieving deep sleep stages, and its safety was specifically addressed to my satisfaction (the recommendation includes reference to adding it when taking the types of medication that I am, at a low dose maximum).
I therefore added a 100 mg dose at bedtime, and the improvement in the quality of my sleep was immediate from the first night -- I have had more deep sleep each night since starting the supplement last week, than for years (even when I was on prescription sleep medication for a time). Such a change right from the first night starting this supplement is really encouraging and provides me with hope that better rest is not only possible to have again, but will in turn reduce pain intensity and before long lessen the dosages of prescription drugs that I would prefer to minimize (or not to have to take at all).
Great for sleep! Calms body.
I started taking 5-HTP several months ago and found it beneficial in controlling my mood swings and depression. After these few months I decided to stop because I was feeling so much better and I don't like taking anything for too long. My mood swings and feelings of anxiety are back, so I have chosen to start taking the 5-HTP again. I believe taking it for a few months, stopping for a month and then resuming again will be of the most benefit for me.
