My overall health and energy went up over a long time of consistently and religiously taking this supplement. This is not a supplement I felt something from within minutes or hours after I took it. I take it before bed every night along with other vitamins and I'm confident that with 5-htp in the mix, my overall immunity and energy levels have risen.
