Build serotonin with 5-htp This product aids the ability to build serotonin, essential for use in handling stress. Vitacost delivers a good product. October 23, 2013
Good for me I take a 50 mg 5- HTP Vitacost brand about 1 hour before bed time to help me sleep. I notice if I don't take one, I wake up cranky the next morning. So in addition to my prescription sleep aid, I always add 5 -HTP to the mix for a good nights rest and immediate awakening the next morning. July 23, 2013
Bought this product for my husband. Helps him sleep better. Will see as time goes by. April 26, 2013
