Great Product, have ordered multiple times... happy Customer!
I loved this product and did well with it initially but had to stop after 2 months because of GI issues. I tried taking them again after a month off of them but the issue started again. Read that this is not uncommon and I may try taking it again after a some months off. I do feel it helped with my sleep while I was taking it.
reordered several times

I had "mild" depression I guess, and it helped me feel much better. The only side effect I was getting was a heartburn after taking it, it's not bad now, I try to take it with food - I read its better to take it with just carbs (like a banana or something). This has "veggie" capsules, so it's good if you're looking for Halal or Kosher. I'd recommend this product.
Reduces sugar cravings

I take this to reduce my terrible cravings to sugar and sweet foods. It works! I take 2 capsules at nighttime, after about 2-3 weeks my sugar cravings have mostly disappeared. It helped to elevate my mood a bit too, and reduce anxiety. If you have uncontrollable sugar cravings, give this a try!
