Change in life perspective
Posted by Reviewer3205133 on Nov 19, 2011
Recommended to me by my nutritionist. I take these in combination with 5-HTP and Theanine. I was suffering from low moods and depression, as well as decreased focus and attention. Taking these tablets has changed my life. My mood is now consistent and good, I have focus, I'm able to think "clearer," and feel mentally better than I have in years. Did much more for me than a lot of therapy ; ) I was prescribed anti-depressants at one point. So glad I resisted. One round of visits to a nutritionist and all better, naturally and healthily!
good but keeps me awake at night

I think this is a good quality product since I definitely notice an effect. I get more energy the day I take it, but then can't sleep at night, so I haven't been able to keep taking them.
Great but right dosis takes some experimenting

Very powerful stuff. Unlike the vast majority of people, it makes me tired, so I take it at night. It is also important to know that Sam E builds up in your system. After taking 200mg for a week, you may feel great at first but start to feel strange after a week or so. I started to bite the pills in half which has made a difference in my energy levels and i feel less spaced out.

Bought this for my elderly mother in the hopes of easing her osteoarthritis. She takes only one tablet first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, with a vit B complex. No effect yet on the arthritis (she's now starting the SAM-e joint formulation) but it gives her a tremendous energy boost. She says she feels so energetic that she just looks around for things to do. And, when she spends the day working (e.g. in the garden, or out all day socialising, shopping and travelling by public transport), she doesn't have the normal aches and pains that would reduce her physical activity for the following couple of days or so. Instead, she's raring to go again the next day. Plus, she's noticeably sunnier, less anxious and just more positive, whenever I talk to her. It has definitely improved her general outlook on life! The only reason I haven't given this full marks is because it doesn't seem to have helped her arthritis.
High value & high quality

This brand is the one recommended by my sister's naturopath, and I feel like it's more effective and is better quality than the last brand I tried. The price is also the best I have found. Thanks, iherb!

Works for mild depression, but does seem to reduce my sex drive in the same way as SSRIs. That effect is less for me with 5htp.

Not sure if it has any real effects on my mood. Still trying it out.
Sam E.... not sure what benefit yet

I have only been using them 2 weeks, so have not seen a change yet.. I heard it takes about 4 weeks to see mood improvement..

I found this brand on website on sale, so of course I grabbed a couple. They were more than half price savings from anywhere I have checked. I have had no problems with them and they seem to work just as good as the other brands I have tried. Thanks for putting them on sale. This way I do not have to be put on an antidepressant and endure the horrible side effects of them. Thanks, Sherry Rowe
