5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels may produce positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.

I like Source Naturals. I have high hopes for the purity and effectiveness of this product.
Think it has improved my sleep.

Too early to say, but I think it has improved my sleep. My sister is less depressive on this, and that's great! :) For myself, I prefer the Holy Basil from New Chapter (it makes me calm and certainly improves my sleep and overall feeling).

This really works to reduce appetite, without the side effects of sleepiness and constipation. An excellent company - their mint-flavored sub-lingual melatonin is the best of its kind.
