L-5-Hydroxytryptophan Supports Normal Sleep Cycles*
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.

Comments about Source Naturals 5-HTP 100mg Capsules, 120 ea:
I bought this to improve my mood but noticed that it said it was used for sleeping so i decided to try taking it before bed just in case it caused drowsiness... it definitely does. puts me out like a light. I've taken it a few times when I've stayed up late and I'll warn that if you are not ready to get a full night's sleep don't take it... I am groggy in the AM if i take it too late. I take one pill at night.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
