  • Enteric Coated 5-HTP Extra Strength from Swanson Ultra

  • Enjoy stomach-friendly serotonin support

  • Promotes mental well-being, healthy stress management and sound sleep

  • With Griffonia simplicifolia

Get stomach-friendly serotonin support with this all-new Enteric Coated 5-HTP Extra Strength supplement from Swanson Ultra. Ensure the effectiveness of your 5-HTP with our new enteric- coated tablets. This form of tryptophan is a leading supplement for supporting mental well- being, combating stress and promoting sound, restful sleep. Unfortunately, some experts suggest that stomach acids may reduce the activity of 5-HTP supplements and some people find that effective doses can irritate their stomachs. Our new enteric coated 5-HTP tablets feature a protective coating designed to survive stomach acids and release in the small intestine. Enteric delivery reduces the potential for stomach upset while preserving the active ingredient for optimum absorption and bioavailability.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT effective enteric coating! 5-HTP works for helping my brain health unlike any other medication I've tried. I LOVE it. But, this marvelous supplement can be very hard on the digestive tract. I simply had to "evict" it shortly after ingesting. I was delighted to find an enterically coated version of Swanson's. The very first time I tried it, my stomach (not intestines as you would think) rejected it in just ten minutes. Luckily my doctor suggested "Nature's Way" enterically coated 5-HTP, and so far (one week in), so good. Don't give up using wonderful 5-HTP, before you try another enterically coated version. This is the first time I've ever been disappointed with a Swanson product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad coating I was really disappointed with the quality of this product. The enteric coating was cracked on all the pills and flaking off. The pills showed a total lack of inspection/quality control check by the manufacturer. It was a waste of money for me to buy the enteric coated version of this pill with enteric coatings that were of no value due to cracking and flaking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Harsh Despite being enteric coated this was had on my stomach and I had to switch back to my old brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! This is a newer product for me to try. I feel like it is helping feel calmer and my sleep has improved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality The enteric coating was cracked and many of the capsules were not in one piece. Despite that I tried them as I had ordered 3 bottles, However they were not effective at all. Have switched to another brand (Natrol) which is more effective.
