Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

5-HTP is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using this product for 1 year and it has helped me to sleep better.
Date published: 2013-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
