I read about this in a men's magazine in 2011, as a 'break up pill' to help with mood, etc. I started on it and have stayed on it ever since. I'm female, 50+, and I find it keeps ma feeling 'normal', balanced, good.

I like taking this, but instead of taking it at night (since it doesn't make me drowsy), I take it in the morning to relax my active mind. It is on the high side price wise, so look for the sales and stock up.

A Good Product
I really like this product. It does what I want, balance my serotonin. And at BOGO....winning!

Used as a appetite suppressant. I found it to be very effective. However, the key is to take it 20 minutes prior to eating ON AN EMPTY stomach. This I found not so easy to do...remembering

This supplement really does work for me. I have a hard time falling asleep.

5HTP - don't like to be without it!
Works well to calm and relax. Like the 50mg size--better to take smaller doses over the course of the day.

To me, I think it to have been effective without a side effect.

Saw a broadcast that recommended 5-HTP for a good night's sleep. Knew that the best price would be Swanson. Tried it and LOVE it. Thanks.

I bought this to help with my PMS cravings and my overall mood. I feel more energetic and have a much more pleasant demeanor since I've started taking this.

love my 5HTP
Since my husband and I have been taking 5HTP every morning before breakfast, we've noticed a difference in our moods. We both seem to be more upbeat about daily life. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

My husband takes this to help him sleep and it works great!

Best Purchase Ever
This item works very well and fast, just wish I knew about it sooner, I am much calmer now and more peaceful, and the price is very fair.

Since my son has to take this twice a day for his weight, I like that the capsules are so small-easier for him to swallow.

Helps with a combination of GABA, L-Tyrosine, 5-HTP, and Calcium/magnesium/plus D to help calm stress before bedtime.

Not sure yet
I have had no success with this yet but i've only been into it a month. I'll try one more month and hopefully I will see and feel something.

I have been taking this product for about a month now. I haven't seen any help with losing weight but I do notice that I am sleeping much better. A more sound sleep and not waking as much during the night.

Helps me sleep
Started to take this and now I am back to sleeping eight hours a night. All you have to do is follow the directions and make sure you get enough exercise.

I like Swanson 5HTP because it helps me sleep at night. I don't always eat foods that help me sleep so I take 5HTP.

Love this product
You just have to try it for yourself to see the
results you will get from taking this product.
I have taken this for years and it is the best on

NO GOOD FOR ME!!
I am sure this helps some people a lot, but for me, it was the WRONG thing. I felt worse when I took this, nervous, anxious, irritable, crazy dreams. But the great news is that I am now taking Swanson's St. John's Wort, and I feel better than I have felt in years, with NO side effects.

It does the job.
It does what it is supposed to do, as well as any brand I've used, and that's about 4 or 5 brands.

best for the least price
I've taken many 5-HTP's, some at multiples of the price Swanson has, and this one worked for me very well...just as I wanted.

A Must For Me!!
I take this every night about an hour before I go to bed. I also take cal/mag and GABA with the 50mg of 5HTP and I sure notice a difference if I don't have this product!!

Terrific mood enhancer
This guy makes me feel like everything's going to be ok (which it is), without drowsiness or insomnia. I usually had to choose between these two side effects, among others, with those other pills. Natural supplements, where have you been all my life? Nevermind, I'm glad you're here now.
