HappySense 5-HTP naturally enhances serotonin levels, which in turn helps promote healthy mood balance, relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia, and reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a preventative. 5-HTP can also be used as a sleep aid.

Can anyone take HappySense®?
HappySense is a very safe, side-effect-free mood elevator designed to help one cope with stress, reduce anxiety and promote better sleep. However, if you are taking MAO inhibitors, SSRIs (Prozac, Luvox, Paxil, Effexor, Zoloft), tricyclic antidepressants (Elavil, Tofranil, Pamelor), or St. John’s wort, you should not take HappySense 5-HTP without first discussing it with a health care practitioner.

Can I take HappySense as well as FibroSense® if I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia?
Yes, these two products can be taken together. HappySense will help increase the body’s levels of serotonin; in addition, the malic acid and magnesium that are in FibroSense will help increase energy levels and decrease muscle pain and inflammation.

How does 5-HTP compare to L-tryptophan?
L-tryptophan converts into 5-HTP, which then converts into serotonin and then into melatonin. 5-HTP is one step closer to serotonin, making it perhaps more effective than L-tryptophan as it bypasses the conversion step.

Does HappySense 5-HTP have the ability to build up in the body and over time a person could start taking less?
5-HTP (the ingredient in HappySense) is a compound product produced in the body from the amino acid “tryptophan”. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter “serotonin” and the hormone “melatonin”. It is believed that taking 5-HTP supplements will increase the body’s own ability to produce it, so yes, one may be able to decrease the dosage over time.

Can you please confirm that your HappySense does not contain Peak-X?
The 5-HTP is screened for Peak-X to ensure that there is no presence of this compound in our product. Rest assured, our HappySense does not contain Peak-X.

Is HappySense gluten free?
Yes, we do have confirmation on file that there is no gluten added and no gluten present in HappySense. However, our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten-free facility, and as we do process products that contain gluten, we are unable to confirm 100% that there is no possibility of cross-contamination.
