Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson's 5-HTP I like taking this, but instead of taking it at night (since it doesn't make me drowsy), I take it in the morning to relax my active mind. It is on the high side price wise, so look for the sales and stock up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 2c worth 5-htp is a great product to increase your serotonin levels, I will use the 50mg in addition to the 100mg. And once my serotonin levels fill up I'll be dropping down to the 50mgs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5-HTP Ever since I learned about 5-HTP a few years back I've become a big proponent for it. I find it helps me sleep at nights, but most of all it helps immensely in high stress situations. Another great addition to a vitamin regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best addition ever I wish I had found this sooner. It has helped me in so many ways I could blog about religiously!! If you ever needed to add a supplement into your diet please research the benefits of 5-HTP and see why it should be on your next order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
