Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 5-htp I cant believe this is priced so low. Now are renowed for quality products. I do not use it chronically so when I do I actually feel its subtle effect, especially at 600mg 3 times a day (when needed ;-) ) Now we need to beg swanson to carry the 120 count bottle too ;-) Excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always have a bottle on hand I have been using 5-htp for many years to help with relaxation and sleep and it works better than anything else I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets My Needs The size, price and value of this product meets my needs in addition to using the 5HTP!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5-HTP Is Awesome 5-HTP helps to increase the serotonin in the nervous system naturally. I take it with other products, like Noni, Sunrider's Prime Again, St Johns herb to elevate the mood. It helps a lot. I take it in the AM, after breakfast, since it can upset the stomach otherwise. I found out there are 5-HTP sensors in the stomach, so the stomach is sensitve to it. I take 200 mg a day. I do feel the effects, and it does give my mood a boost.
