Helps me sleep and wake up happy

Posted on Jul 17, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin (the happy hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone). So, if you take it, your brain will make both melatonin (to help you fall asleep) and serotonin (to make you happy). I take 4-6 pills (2-3 grams) of Tryptophan every night. It gets me to sleep and keeps me sleeping better than Melatonin. I wake up happy and energetic as a result of serotonin production. It also produces sleep entrainment (if you take it at 10 PM, you will fall asleep at 10-11 PM, even if you stop taking it). After some time, it loses it's effect, and I have to switch to something else periodically. This is because there are some enzymes which break down tryptophan. The normal quantity of Trypthopan taken in through diet is 1.5-2 g. May reduce carbohydrate consumption. Most people overeat carbohydrates because carbs help tryptophan cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). When obese patients were given 1,000 mg, 2,000 mg, or 3,000 mg doses of L-tryptophan one hour before meals to raise the amount of tryptophan, a significant decrease in caloric consumption was observed. The majority of the reduction in caloric intake was due to the amount of carbohydrates, not protein, consumed.

Excellent multivitamin

Posted on May 09, 2015

4 people found the following review helpful

After years of experiments searching for the perfect multivitamin I have finally discovered Thorne 2/day. It makes me feel good, probably because it does not contain extras such as ALA, NAC, choline, etc - which are good for many people but are not good for my particular situation. Thanks, Thorne, for sticking to the basics and providing all of them in the most healthy form.

Glutathione from Jarrow had a harsh effect on me, so I tried this time released version. The effects are very good, I sleep like a log, feel good and my skin has whitened.

This form of magnesium helps me sleep a lot better than other forms of magnesium I tried. It is clear to me that it really gets into the brain as claimed.

Extreme energy

Gives me extreme energy. However, I gained 3 KG from half a jar of this. :-( Maybe useful during dieting IF you can stand the temptation and not gorge with it.

Headaches

Decreases nitric oxide and detoxifies cyanide. However, it decreases nitric oxide too much for me, creating vasoconstriction and causing a headache

Has some effect, but other, better forms are available

Posted on Sep 15, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

In ~2 hours after taking 500 mg I feel some effect, my face is a bit redder and I feel a bit energized. Instead of this I recommend Ubiquinol, Idebenone and PQQ - which are a lot stronger, better absorbed and very healthy, especially for old people.

excellent nootropic, helps with speech and mood

Posted on Mar 13, 2011

7 people found the following review helpful

I have tried a few nootropics and this is the best - it helps me a lot with social phobia and speaking. Without it, I speak normally, like everybody else. With it, I speak extremely fluently and have very good speaking skills, and can deliver a reasonable speech, in public, without preparing.

GIVES ME HAND TREMORS. Gives motivation by enhancing dopamine

Posted on Aug 14, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

I STOPPED TAKING IT BECAUSE IT GIVES ME HAND TREMORS. This is from my older review: If I feel unmotivated and I take 4 caps, I'm a lot more motivated, and think better. I'm able to concentrate better. It increases dopamine in the brain. Dopamine means "I WANT". Whatever I want in that moment, I want even more after taking Dopa Mucuna. This means I may overeat, for example.. or do a lot of exercise being highly motivated.

Very good

Posted on Apr 27, 2012

I am on my 6th or 7th bottle now. Very, very good prostate supplement. I have an enlarged prostate and used to have permanent infection which didn't go away with months of antibiotics (I had chronic prostatitis). After taking these for a few months, my problems are gone. No more infection, I can urinate normally. And this happens even if I stop taking them for a few weeks. Now I just take them as a prevention measure. Beta-sitosterol also inhibits testosterone to DHT conversion which may help you keep your hair on your head (the DHT, in time, kills the hair-producing folicles).

Best fish oil

Posted on Apr 27, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Pharmaceutical grade distilled, no fish burps or fish oil regurgitation. Very, very good. Should be combined with Neptune Krill Oil and Flax Oil, because they contain different lipid profiles. . According to Dr. Jack Kruse, more Omega-3 is needed in winter. However, fish oil also decreases immunity a bit.
