Overview

5-HTP: The new, natural way to enhance mental and physical health.

If you're picking up this book, you've probably tried prescription drugs, only to find that the expense, unpleasant side effects, and potential for dangerous reactions aren't worth it. You want a natural alternative to remedy your condition, but don't know what to choose.

Read on to find out:

* If 5-HTP is right for you

* What dosages and regimens are recommended for treating your specific problem

* Possible interactions with other medications and supplements

* When to seek medical help for a problem

* And much, much more!
