I had never tried 5HTP before and WOW! What a difference it has made in my life! I started to take it because I was unable to sleep and was having alot of anxiety. I now sleep very well and I am not depressed. I could feel the difference the next morning. I take 50mg at bedtime and 50mg mid morning. I feel incredibly well.
BioChem products have the GMP seal; for me this acts as an assurance that the claims made on the label are indeed kept within the bottle. This product replaced a pharmaceutical that I had been on for more than 2 years. My med manager insisted GMP when she recommended the 5HTP. The GMP seal and the vegetarian nature of the product immediately make it 3 star. BioChem 5HTP gets 5 stars; it works as well as the previous pharmaceutical. And iHerb gets 5 stars as well with the best price I've found yet for the product and tremendous service as well.

I've been having trouble sleeping so I started taking this product about three weeks ago. It's really helped and I've also found that my mood is more upbeat (maybe because I'm finally getting enough sleep!!). I did find I need 100mg for optimum results. It's also helped me finally kick caffeine. I still had the headaches and tiredness, but not the terrible depression that can come with withdrawal. I'll definitely stay on 5-HTP and my second bottle is currently on its way!

it worked very well for my husband, it took away the edginess from him. I tried it to improved my sleep, but it wasn't for me. It kept me wake.My reason for not sleeping well is maybe from another cause.

This 50mg. works better than other 100mg caps that I've taken. I am still looking for the panacia though. I have real trouble falling asleep.
GREAT PRODUCT FOR WELL BEING AND RESTORING SLEEP PATTERNS!

Really helps me get good REM sleep. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed - haven't done that in years! No side effects, if I need to get up in the night, I can without feeling groggy. Great natural product!!
