Great product for PTSD

Posted by Reviewer2692763 on Oct 15, 2016

This is a great product and a lifesaver used in conjunction with gaba and melatonin. Extreme PTSD in my son was bought under control using Gaba in the morning and 5htp at bedtime with melatonin. Gaba calms and gets the brain communicating properly 5htp calms and keeps moods on the up. Great stuff.

Good product. Left me a little drowsiness at the beginning, but in general ok. I recommend it.

My happy pills!

Great for recovering depressive peeps like me. Taken on an empty stomach, this stuff helps your tummy create serotonin until your body recalls how to do it by itself. Anti depressants make them for you, so your body stops doing it automatically (so I've been told by a naturopath). This is why this stuff is good for recovery - after you've come off your meds and your body has forgotten how to make the feel good chemicals on it's own. I was on psych meds for nine years, I've been off them for four years now and I use 5HTP every now and then when I feel I need a boost. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! :)
