Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 3, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 14, 2013

Rated 3 out of 5 by 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.
