Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for me After searching many, I am happy to find this product for mood and sleep. Has the appropriate absorption factors- and no sugar alcohols! February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Low dose effectiveness This works really well for me at LOW doses, the higher doses make me dopey. Swanson has the lowest price. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value This is the brand of 5-HTP we have used for years - I appreciate the fact that I can buy it here for less than anywhere else! July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product and price This is the best price I've found for NW 5-HTP. It makes a HUGE difference in the attitude of the family member who is taking it and has, therefore, greatly improved the quality of life for the entire family. May 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems to help! This seems to work well, picks me up within a couple of days of taking it. However I am switching to Swanson's brand HTP because this one contains B6 and I'm already taking several supplements that have B6 and I don't want to overdose on it! I do like that this one contains vitamin C as well. Oh and I also started taking this supplement because I have trouble falling asleep and it has helped a great deal! Usually I lay in bed for an hour or more but have been falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow after starting this supplement! February 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best the quality is excellent!! Vitamin B6 made it one of the best! June 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I've been taking this for a couple of months, and I am pleased with the results. My system tolerates it well, and I definitely notice a difference when I forget for a couple of days (I moved, and the supplement box got misplaced for a short while.... yikes!!). Great value, and an effective product. Works for me! July 13, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for the price Great prices for a quality product October 28, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nature's Way 5-HTP I like the tabs for 5-HTP. I tolerate this one well and it does help with sleep along with L-Tryptophan. August 1, 2009
