A "must" item!

Posted by Reviewer1903848 on Jan 13, 2017

After reading the book "Mood Cures" by Julia Ross I discovered the solution to my gloomy mindset and it was a lack of serotonin in the brain due to an unusual healthy atmosphere in those crucial first two years. Throughout the book 5HTP is the most mentioned Amino Acid. I would have to say - read the book and start to include 5HTP but that's not all of it, but it has a lot to do with other necessary Aminos also.

I started this producy but could not use it. Made me feel very odd and dizzy. Maybe too much for me... Or taurine or something.. But had to stop useing this after two days. Sadly. Maybe should have tried some other product with less strenght.

Really Helps

Posted by 5346981783451639353 on May 16, 2015

This one is pretty strong, maybe best to start off on 50mg and work your way up to this 200mg one because your body can build up a tolerance. I feel a sense of calm and "everything is going to be alright" which really helps with my anxiety. Be careful if you have a lot of things to do though because I find it makes me a bit indifferent to tasks. Remember if you have depression and anxiety, any kind of pill will be just a quick fix to help you feel emotionally OK in the short term, but if there are non-chemical reasons like trauma or bad relationships causing your illness you will need to deal with that in order to properly heal and feel deeply happy.
