I take this before bedtime and wake up feeling better than when I don't take it. Helps with getting to sleep faster.

If a moth ***** in the room next door I normally here it. This product makes me sleep better. Also those times when I'd normally be counting down the minutes of my day time job are far less. I believe it's giving me some good old fashion natural happiness back. Would recommend it to anyone!

I'm a big fan of NOW products, I've noticed they're priced well and offer great quality. When it comes to 5-HTP, there is no question that this product does work. I take 2-3 caps before I go to bed, generally 2 hours after I've eaten. I've noticed that my mood when waking up is much better, feel less stressed and happier. With that being said, naturally there are times when I wake up moody or still feeling stressed but for most part, it's great and looking at the price, why wouldn't you get some.

I'm writing this review to express more disappointment in 5-HTP in general as opposed to NOW's 5-HTP. I feel that ZMA provides a better state of rest and recovery than 5-HTP. While on this supplement, I never noticed a decrease in appetite or change in behavior. You'll sleep better on this than without taking anything, but I wouldn't purchase again as there was only a minimal improvement in mood during the day after 100mg of 5-HTP.

Solid product. The mood benefits don't seem to be as strong as L-Tryptophan, but 5-HTP helps me sleep well without upsetting my stomach. It's cheaper per serving too.

I have been very happy with this 5-HTP. I really appreciate the quality ingredients the NOW line of supplements uses in all of its products.

This is an incredible supplement. works incredibly well at what its supposed to do; raise your mood, and raise seretonin. increase dose slowly if you decide to take 300mg/day.
