Rated 5 out of 5 by The best 5-htp I cant believe this is priced so low. Now are renowed for quality products. I do not use it chronically so when I do I actually feel its subtle effect, especially at 600mg 3 times a day (when needed ;-) ) Now we need to beg swanson to carry the 120 count bottle too ;-) Excellent! January 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always have a bottle on hand I have been using 5-htp for many years to help with relaxation and sleep and it works better than anything else I have tried. February 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Meets My Needs The size, price and value of this product meets my needs in addition to using the 5HTP! August 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5-HTP Is Awesome 5-HTP helps to increase the serotonin in the nervous system naturally. I take it with other products, like Noni, Sunrider's Prime Again, St Johns herb to elevate the mood. It helps a lot. I take it in the AM, after breakfast, since it can upset the stomach otherwise. I found out there are 5-HTP sensors in the stomach, so the stomach is sensitve to it. I take 200 mg a day. I do feel the effects, and it does give my mood a boost. July 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product Been using this product for two years now. Used to buy it elsewhere but it it less here. Wonderful for keeping me on an even keel. March 28, 2010
