I want to buy 5htp to start taking it daily. Where I live the only one i've been able to find from a brand called LongLife. The ingredient list says:
Bulking agent (cellulose m.c.), maltodextrine, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide.
What do you think? It would be ok if I buy this one or should I look for another one?
By the way, HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Is there a reason you are taking 5-HTP? To my knowledge, it is not approved to treat any disease.

You should not be taking 5-htp daily.
Please read "the Mood Cure" if you are having emotional issues. 5-htp is okay for short term use, according to that book, not indefinite daily use
