  • 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 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 neurotransmitter production while providing a little extra for enhanced results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use with Swanson's "Sleep Essentials" Together, this + Sleep Essentials is changing my sleep cycle for the better. I do take a higher dose.
