"5-HTP and Melatonin is one of the best sleep combinations out there. And the Swanson Price is unbeatable as always. I highly recommend this product." ~product review by creeny

  • 50 mg of 5-HTP & 3 mg of melatonin per veggie capsule

  • Two-tiered approach for sleep support

  • Vegetarian

  • With Griffonia simplicifolia

Healthy sleep depends on healthy melatonin/serotonin, produced by the pineal gland deep within the brain. 5-HTP (L-5 Hydroxytryptophan) is a natural precursor to serotonin and thereby supports healthy levels of this important neurotransmitter. The pineal gland is governed by the circadian rhythm, producing serotonin during daylight hours then shifting to melatonin throughout the evening and night. Thus, combining 5-HTP with pure melatonin provides a two-tier approach to healthy sleep, supporting natural neurotransmitter production while providing a little extra for enhanced results.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Makes me too tired Helps me fall asleep quickly, but feel incredibly groggy and slow with taking just one. Something in this is too strong for me. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like a 'dream' I tried this stuff on a whim, because I was sick of taking 5 big pills worth of valerian root for nights I needed help sleeping. With one tiny pill, usually about half an hour afterwards, this stuff relaxes me to a point that my brain doesn't stress me out, and leaves me feeling refreshed in the morning. I've recommended this to several friends. March 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good product This seems to help me sleep at least 4-5 hours, then after an hour awake, I can normally sleep another hour. Some nights I take another Swanson product, Valerian Chamomile Hops, and together I can get 6 hours straight. February 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Sleep Melatonin alone helps me get to sleep quicker, but with 5-HTP I also sleep solidly thru the nite. January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5-Htp & Melatonin I have difficulty getting to sleep at night and taking this product does help alot. Getting old have their sleeping difficulties in most of us. December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works After trying many different brands of Melatonin, I settled with this one. No "hangover" feeling in the morning and the price is affordable. November 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really works well I was afraid to try melatonin again because when I tried it years ago it made me groggy in the morning. Not this product. It makes me fall asleep within a half hour of taking it and I wake up energized in the morning. Love this product September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is one product that I will use in an ongoing way. It does what it says it will. I am almost 70 and have sleep problems. With this product I get a relaxed, good night's sleep with no side effects. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Combination for Sleep 5-HTP and Melatonin is one of the best sleep combinations out there. And the Swanson Price is unbeatable as always. I highly recommend this product. August 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sleeping better I have always found it difficult to fall asleep. I also wake up in the night and have a hard time getting back to sleep. With this product I stay asleep throughout the night; I have more REM sleep and I wake up with more energy. It's been very helpful June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT deep sleep for me, for my husband, too! As we have gotten older, we have been taking melatonin to help us sleep well - which has worked for us. Recently we tried the 5-HTP Melatonin and LOVED IT!! Works very well for both my husband and for me!!! And - the price is GREAT!! May 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This has helped tremendously. I use it with Valerian Root. March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent for what it was advertised for. Really made my sleep more deep and lengthy. March 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Will continue to purchase these... March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5-htp & Melatonin I really love this product. It helps me to sleep better at night. Sleep is so important & so when I heard about this product I was thrilled about it. I was so ready to try it & to my surprise, for me. it does help to enduce sleep. I have already recommended it to a lot of my friends in hopes it will hellp them too. February 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by SLEEP AT LAST! This is a wonderful product....I have used Swanson's Dual -release Melatonin for years and it worked well most of the time. With this product, I find I actually get sleepier sooner and don't lie awake waiting for it to work. Easier to take and no sense of groggyness the next morning. Love it! November 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! After many years of waking up at 2 AM for an hour or two, I now sleep though the night. I wake up but go back to sleep. I feel healthier and stronger due to the extra sleep. I will experiment with a lower dose, 1/2 or 1/3. It appears to have a cumlative affect so may not have to take it every night. I'm not sure how much is due to the HTP or the melatonin. I wish to try the melatonin only next. November 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use with Swanson's "Sleep Essentials" Together, this + Sleep Essentials is changing my sleep cycle for the better. I do take a higher dose. November 2, 2012
