Calmer I have been taking this to help promote a better outlook when things are to stressful at work. I truly believe this has helped my mood be calmer and relaxed reaction most of the time. November 10, 2013
Can't live without it! I've been taking NOW 5-HTP for over 15 years. It's the most effective 5-HTP that I've tried. It really helps my mood. I take it in the AM and afternoon. It doesn't make me drowsy at all. August 14, 2013

I t does what the description says on bottle I feel better from taking this supplement as prescribed for physician. May 29, 2013
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. May 13, 2013
Great product I have been using this product for 1 year and it has helped me to sleep better. March 27, 2013
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. March 2, 2013
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. September 23, 2012
Nighty night I use this product to help me sleep. It works. October 7, 2011
Works Well This has greatly improved overall emotion stability and sleep patterns that occur with menapause and aging. Well recommended and effective product. September 19, 2011
awesome nice makes me feel evenly keel June 27, 2011
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. December 11, 2010
