I just posted about 5-HTP 2 days ago a little ways down the board. It's great to get some first hand feed back on the subject.
Do you take any supplements containing niacin? I read that niacin (B-6) causes the 5-HTP to be converted to 5-HT and stored in the blood and GI system rather than in the brain. I'm guessing we want it in the brain (central nervous system) and more will go to that system if not taking B-6.
Excitedly waiting to hear from you.
