Much better sleep ...
I take 5-HTP with 1 Sleep Essentials capsule about 1 hr. before bed. This combination keeps me asleep all night and calms my active mind. I am very pleased with the results and thankful that I now sleep 7-8 hrs. a night.

No real effect
My daughter in law and I were both seeking assistance with mood elevation and neither of us found that to be the case with this product. I think it works beautifully for some and not for others. Have moved on to SAMe and seeing some beginning results.

This has been very effective for me as a mood-lifter. The only inconvenience is having to take it on an empty stomach, a hard thing to time correctly for me.

Didn't work for me
I tried this supplement to help with mood support. I did not notice any benefits. Did not work for me.

We've been pleased with this product. It is comparable to a 5-HTP product we used in the past, but as is typical, Swanson came through with great quality at a better price. Love it.

I've never felt more relaxed!
I take many supplements, and I include 5-HTP as one. I take in afternoon, on an empty stomach, and I've never felt more relaxed!

A great product!
An excellent product for giving our brains those necessary nutrients to be able to function properly. I have not noticed any difference from this brand compared with some more expensive brands. It works just as well and costs less. What more could you want??

good for rest at night
Good with melatonin when you need to get to sleep. As I have gotten older, sleep has become more illusive. With the combination of the 50 mg and 9 mg of melatonin, I get sleepy and can rest for the night.

5-htp Gave Me Problems
Over the past 15 or more years I have tried just about everything out there for my mood health. Unfortunately, 5-htp, like the Sam-e I previously tried, made me grouchy and jittery.
For the past month I've been taking St. John's Wort, and FINALLY, I've found something that WORKS for me. It took about 3 weeks of gradually increasing the dose, but now, taking one 250 mg capsule of St. John's Wort in the morning, and two capsules at night, I feel by far the best I have felt in years. I know some people who do great on 5-htp, so it may work for you. I'm just glad I didn't give up trying different things, until I finally found something that works. You can do that with Swanson, and not worry about "wasting money," thanks to their satisfaction guarantee!

Great for blood type "O"s
Hubby is an "O" blood type. They & their attitudes greatly benefit from adding 5htp.
He loves it as well. Swanson has best prices and quality products. We LOVE Swanson!

Helps me to relax and sleep well at night. It's literally night/day (excuse pun) difference for me in how well I sleep.

makes you too nauseous
I followed the directions EXACTLY! It says to take on a empty stomach, I did. It was like being punched in the stomach. I wanted to try this so bad I also tried it a second time in hopes I could at least give it a try for it to work but the same thing happened.
I really wish I could have at least tested to see if the pills worked.
I am SO DISAPOINTED!!

Didn't work for me
I have been using 5-HTP for several months with good results. Switched to this brand and found myself tense and unable to sleep well. I'm going to go back to the more-expensive name brand.

A Little Disappointed
I have been using this type of product for about 5 years. This latest batch did not have the same effectiveness as ones purchased before. Had to double up on the dosage, so the value went down.

Notice The Difference
I take this product every night. I have a nightly routine of taking this 50mg 5HTP, NAC and a combination capsule of Vitamin D, Magnesium & Calcium. I use this combination instead of a sleeping aid! Sometimes I throw in a Swanson's brand GABA!! :)

Does what I need it too, calm and relieve stress. I feel more leveled and in control. Don't get my bottons pushed as easily.

Improved my quality of Life
When my mental health was suffering, 5-HTP helped me think more clearly and feel like myself again. After only three days!! I've taken it everyday for seven years to maintain mental health. It's given me back a normal life.

Finally, a Good Night's Sleep
I am amazed at how well this works for me. I take one 50mg capsule in the late evening. I fall asleep quickly and stay asleep all night.
