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.

Not over priced. I wish it had a higher dosage but this seems to be adequate for the time being.
A "must" item!

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.
