What is Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP?
The following review is for a dietary supplement called Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP. The manufacturer claims that their supplement can help promote a calm and relaxed mood. To find out more about the ingredients used in Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP and to discover all the benefits, read our full review below.
- Dicalcium Phosphate
- Vegetable Cellulose
- Vegetable Magnesium Stearate
Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP only contains two main ingredients namely Calcium and 5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) derived from Griffonia seed extract. The manufacturer claims that their supplement can help with depression, anxiety, and stress, and that it can even promote weight loss. Also, the ingredients help to increase the production of serotonin which helps one feel better and sleep better. However, our research has shown us that this supplement is lacking crucial ingredients that have been clinically proven to be safe and effective. Also, the product lacks a night time formula that provides the user with melatonin for peaceful sleep. The day time formula should contain Valerian root, L-Theanine, Passion flower, Chamomile flower, magnesium, and Bacopa. Without these ingredients, the product may not be as effective as other brands.
Adults are recommended by the manufacturer to take 2 capsules once a day as needed or at bedtime. This is because 5-HTP may produce drowsiness. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not indicate if the product must be taken with a meal or on an empty stomach.
What is the Cost?
The supplement can be purchased online for $27.36. Each bottle contains 120 capsules which will last you 2 months. Thus, this product is very cheap in comparison with other brands and this may be an indication of low-quality ingredients. It is however relevant to know that the manufacturer does not provide the user with the option of choosing between different bundle deals.
The customer is offered a money-back guarantee if they are not satisfied with the product they have purchased. The period of time the customer has to return the product is 30-days. Unfortunately, customers may not return products that have been opened or used from. If so, a refund will be refused. This is a very weak guarantee and customers will be left at risk.
Our Final Review of Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP
We have completed our review of Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP and found that the manufacturer provides their customers with easy to swallow, rapid releasing capsules.
However, we were quite disappointed with a few other things that we found out about the product. First of all, the manufacturer does not provide clear instructions on how the capsules should be taken. This may cause the product to be less effective if taken incorrectly. Furthermore, the product lacks a long list of clinically proven and effective ingredients. As a result, this supplement may not be as effective as other brands. Also, the manufacturer may be providing a low-quality supplement based on the fact that it is priced so low. Finally, the manufacturer offers a weak guarantee that is reflected due to the possibly low-quality ingredients and lack of benefits for the customer. Due to these drawbacks mentioned above, we do not recommend the safe and effective use of Puritan’s Pride 5-HTP.
