Hi guys,

I just recently went through a bit of an anxious period over christmas and did some research about natural herbal tablets that can reduce anxiety. I just felt this could be a step in the right direction along with more exercise and other steps. Anyway, to cut a long story short I ended up reading about '5 HTP' and how it can reduce anxiety and stress and even increase levels of serotonin. You can buy them from health shop's and chemists and dont need a perscription although I believe you shouldn't take them if you are on any other meds. Since taking them I do feel better in myself and the constant low feeling has gone. Has anyone else tried these before? I'd be very interested to know your experiences :meanie::clap:

Yeah. I took them for a couple months and felt a little better. Out of them now though.

I take 5-htp. Only been on it for 2 weeks or so. It is difficult to say its effect - but I am less anxious now.
