Great Stuff! Works so well to moderate moods. Used by 55 , 68 and 86 year olds in our house for tranquility and uplifting emotions. Great stuff. March 28, 2014
Good for sleep I like this. It mellows me out and prepares me for a good nights sleep. It is understood to be a precurser to seratonin which helps to prolong the deep stages of sleep. I lasts for about six hours, so the last two-three hours of sleep can have an REM rebound affect which seem to produce calm dreams in the early morning. February 15, 2014
Best SLEEP While pregnant I had a really hard time sleeping. Either not soundly or long enough. Once I started taking this product at night before bed I could sleep so good!! And the price is outstanding!!! December 30, 2013
All Good My Doctor told me to start taking this product and I have used this ever since. I am grateful for having yet another Swanson brand product I can count on! December 19, 2013
usefull I read about this product some where else and went to Swnsons to read about it there/.I bought it and will continue to use it. I feel mentally healthier using this product. December 4, 2013
A new believer The best 5-HTP on the market. It works. November 30, 2013
Great purchase 5htp works great at keeping my husband on an even keel. Keep up the good work! November 21, 2013
Very happy to have found this product Best product I've found for a natural sleep aid and I feel great. November 19, 2013
best, cheapest 5 HTP for your buck This is as high quality as others I've tried, and is much cheaper than you can usually find. That's all I need--sweet (and interesting!) dreams! November 13, 2013
good product Great for improving mood and for sleep quality. I definitely noticed a difference when taken daily (at night) with my overall ability to handle stress throughout the day. October 17, 2013
Took two for sleep issues and it worked pretty well. I think the enteric coated version works a bit better though. September 29, 2013
It works 5-htp is great for raising serotonin levels and helps me sleep. I read somewhere though, that it may take up to 3 months for it to be fully effective. I haven't yet reached that stage so am patiently waiting. September 24, 2013
5 htp - natural alt to ssri Natural seratonin works better for me than anything else I tried without any negative effects. Great product at a great price. September 6, 2013
Sleeping and relaxation Htp-5 is great for sleeping and relaxing the body. September 4, 2013
This really works ! I take this and GABA and it's really help me to relax and not feel stressed out and I get a good nights sleep and I wake up feeling refreshed in the morning I have recommend this product to others. August 28, 2013
Helps me sleep I was waking up in the night, then taking 5-htp I sleep through the night and wake up refreshed August 27, 2013
Great product, great price! This is by far the most economical source of 5-HTP I've found anywhere. I find that it helps support healthy moods. August 8, 2013
Great product 5-HTP really seems to help improve my mood. It seems to calm me down. I would most definitely recommend it to a friend. And you get a great price from Swanson... so it is a win win for me. July 24, 2013
will take forever great mood enhancer July 12, 2013
Very pleasantly surprised! I originally bought this for my wife who is 38 and a nurse. She has always had trouble falling asleep and seldom would sleep soundly throughout the night without waking up several times during the night. I bought this along with GABA in the hopes that one or both might help her. From the first dose 20 minutes before bed she was KNOCKED OUT! Not only that, but she remained asleep all night long without waking up! Needless to say, I have a much more well rested wife and am very thankful. Not sure which did it (or the combo) but one of each sure did the trick for us. July 12, 2013
Sleepy time Great for a good nights sleep. July 9, 2013
Excellant product I am sleeping like a baby. It works for me and I am so thankful July 7, 2013
Cost and Effectiveness A Plus! Although only the 100mg capsule, it is a great product and a great price! very rarely give out a complete 5 rating to anything- but I did to this! I just ordered more again today! June 25, 2013
5-htp helps me feel more balanced and stable but I have to take 200 - 400 mg a day for it to be effective. Love the product but wish Swanson's carried it at a 200 mg dosage so I didn't have to take so many pills. June 21, 2013
Good product I use this with melatonin to help me sleep. The combination works well for me June 19, 2013
