A little goes a long way

One of these capsules is plenty for me to help with those annoying middle-of-the-night wake ups. No morning lag. Good price, good product from a reliable company. Katie, New Hampshire

5-HTP is excellent!! And Jarrow's is stellar. Can really feel the difference. I have chronic pain condition which depletes the body of serotonin. This product helps with sleep as well.
Best brand to buy

Recommended brand by medical professionals. Couldn't take about 20 years ago as made me hyper but probably because I didn't have pain then. If you have chronic pain, your endorphins are used up in same pathway as pain signals and you either need antidepressants or this. Started with 1 a day, after a couple of months, doctor raised me to 2 a day; take one as soon as I get up in morning, the last one a couple of hours before bed. Have noticed a huge difference. Will continue to use this brand.
5-HTP - Trying to bring my mood up..

I must say, I took only one 50mg tablet before bed last night for the first time and woke up feeling pretty good! I've been feeling really out of tune (fatigue, depressed, moody), and also my social life has gone down the drain. This 5-htp seems to be having some effect on me, hopefully things will only get better in time! Also as always, iHerb has awesome fast shipping and customer service. Thanks.
Value for money and puts me in that Zen mood

Just one capsule and an hour later, I feel like Buddha. I cycle it after a week twice daily, then one whenever I feel wired. Also lowered my bp slightly (approximately -10).
DId not work for me...

When I started this product, I was going through some hard times and I thought that might help me with the minor depression but it actually had a reverse effect on me and I was feeling way more emotional and worse. I stopped it now and I feel fine. It was scary for a couple of weeks. I am sure it works for a lots of people.

I am almost through my first bottle. I take one in the morning and one at night. I have noticed that I sleep much better and my moods are much more even during the day. I do try to take the evening dose around 8pm as it seems sometimes in the morning I struggle to wake up.

High quality; 5-HTP is a more potent hydroxyl radical scavenger than melatonin.
