It helps to promote healthy mood balance and helps to relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia. 5-HTP may also help to reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic. It can help in weight management by reducing carbohydrate cravings. 5-HTP also acts as a sleep aid.

I've been using this for about 13 years. Always high quality and does work very well.
After taking Trophic 5-htp for approximately a month and a half I was slapped with a recollection .... I have been feeling incredibly depressed and sad and unenthusiastic .... when this started happening is when I switched from the SISU 100 5-htp, which I will be going back to ..... Trophic is useless.
works in helping reduce mental agitation.
