Not sure they are helping at the moment as I have an issue with my knee that keeps me awake !

25 January 2017

Finding it slow to respond and not sure as to difference between both products. I had thought both 5htp supplements were for sleep.

24 January 2017

So far, so good. Just started the course but I seem to be sleeping better already.

Thank you for your feedback.

Really help me sleep. If I don't take them, I'm restless.

Than you for your review - It's great to hear that these are helping you sleep.

Useful to have 5HtP and Magnesium in the same tablet. Could be improved by making it higher dose Mg and a better absorbed form other than Mg oxide. I suggest adding glycine and choline and/or lecithin if you have trouble sleeping.

Didn't do a thing for me, even after two weeks use.
