Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I combine this with melatonin. If I take melatonin without the 5htp, then the melatonin does not work for me. The two seem to go hand in hand. July 17, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't live without it! I've been taking NOW 5-HTP for over 15 years. It's the most effective 5-HTP that I've tried. It really helps my mood. I take it in the AM and afternoon. It doesn't make me drowsy at all. August 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by effective product I take this product to help me sleep, and I find that it is very effective. It is also a good value. I would recommend this product for anyone who needs help falling asleep. August 2, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by I t does what the description says on bottle I feel better from taking this supplement as prescribed for physician. May 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Product This product helps mood and sleep and it works wonderfully. I've never used a product like this one before and it does exactly what it says it will do. Using this at night and DMG in the morning makes all the difference in the world for mood and sleep. I will never be without this product. May 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have been using this product for 1 year and it has helped me to sleep better. March 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by For a restful night's sleep After trying melatonin, valerian root & other sleep combinations I have found NOW brand's 5-HTP works well to relax me & help me get peaceful sleep...minus the fitful dreaming of the other products. I take 2 100mg caps around 8:30 & am asleep by 10 for the night. No foggy head the next morning. March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Central Nervous System balance achieved! 200 mg/ day works for me, to achieve CNS balance, affecting emotional reaction to stress, sleep patterns, and breaking the brain-barrier concerning seratonin uptake. I have also found additional 5-HTP useful for PMS. Trial and error with other supplements brings me back to 5-HTP. I do believe adopting an on/ off cycle, to help my body be less prone to reaching plateau intolerance to the same daily dosage, improves the consistency of positive results I get from 5-HTP. September 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nighty night I use this product to help me sleep. It works. October 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Well This has greatly improved overall emotion stability and sleep patterns that occur with menapause and aging. Well recommended and effective product. September 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome nice makes me feel evenly keel June 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by like it not all 5-htp supplements are created equal. with some i felt no effect at all. NOW seems to be quite potent and i could definitely feel the difference. from NOW on (no pun intended) i'll only buy this brand, tired of experimenting. December 11, 2010
