A healthy sleep cycle is so important to your overall health and wellness.

These 200 mg tablets are easy-to-take and provide support for positive mood, healthy appetite and natural sleep. This is a drug-free, plant-derived formula that utilizes an amino acid that naturally supports healthy levels of serotonin, the messenger that affects emotions, appetite and sleep. Natrol's 5-HTP Time Release sleep formula contains no yeast, wheat, corn, milk, egg, soy, glutens, artificial colors, or flavors, added sugar, starch or preservatives.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

5-HTP Time Release is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not mellow I tried the Natrol 5-HTP for relaxation because my regular choice was not in stock. The time-release effect didn't feel effective enough. I was more restless than usual. I think I'll save money & stick with my regular choice for relaxation. I was thoroughly unimpressed & it wasn't cost-efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most effective sleep aid I've found I don't recommend the product simply because I'm not qualified. But, I've had consistent results with going to sleep and staying asleep. Too much caffeine or caffeine too late will disturb my rest despite its great effects. I've had to change my sleep aid consistently in the past due to them ceasing to be effective. Been taking this one for about 4 years now and still working fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the time release These have proven to be very effective for me. The others give me a stomach ache and these are the only ones that don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I'm finding that this product works very well for helping me get to and stay asleep. I also think it is helping me with my mood. But, I do not find that it helps with controlling my appetite. I purchased this product for sleeping so I am very pleased with it. The 200 mg. time release is convenient because it only has to be taken once a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natrol's 5-HTP Time Release I have used this product for about five years and have had good results. I used to buy it locally until I ran across Swanson's catalog that someone had discarded at the post office. I noticed that Swanson's had the best price around so I gave it try. The order was processed the same day. I even received a confirmation email with detailed tracking information. Swanson is top notch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 200mg I like this product because it's 200mg. Now I only have to take 1 pill instead of 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I began taking this several months ago and noticed right away how it improved my over all mood. I can tell when I haven't taken it, I feel blah, but once I take this, my mood is elevated and I feel happier. Haven't really noticed any changes in sleep or any appetitie control but I take for the mood inhancement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like this product I was taking 5-HTP for sleep and it didn't help me much and it didn't help with cravings when I took it at night. One day I decided to try it in the morning instead, and it has really helped with cravings for excess food, which I've struggled with since childhood. I have also noticed I can handle stress better since taking it in the morning every day. I'm grateful and hope it keeps on working for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It helps me make it threw the day and I get a Good nights sleep with the time release. Listen to your body, it will tell you when it's bed time! I wouldn't be with out it, I Really need my beauty sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from helpful product Can be used at night with melatonin for sleep. Time release formula helps greatly. No "hangover sleepiness" during the next day. It is only part of what I take for sleep so that's why 4 leaves for effectiveness. If taken during the day, it doesn't make a person sleepy and helps raise serotonin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Combining this with 5mg time released melatonin, I get a good night's sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I use this product every day and had been spending twice as much on it at GNC and Walgreens. Now I order everything through Swanson because they have the best prices anywhere! I'm a very happy customer and will buy this product here from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 5-htp you can get for such a great price. This product has helped me manage negative emotions and bad moods. This product is very effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those who wake too early I am a woman just ready to turn 60, and as many, I could not STAY asleep. I could get to sleep using the usual supplements, but not STAY asleep. So the Timed Release 5-htp really helps. I can now sleep 7-1/2 hours easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!! I love this product. Works well so far.
Date published: 2011-08-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this product worked quite well to regulate my sleep pattern. I'm able to get to sleep a lot easier since taking it. It hasn't, however, done anything for appetite control. It deteriorates when exposed to the air/humidity so I cannot store it in my pill box along with the rest of my vitamins. The mood and sleep regulating it provides is enough for me to continue using this product.
