I take two 30-45 minutes before wanting to sleep and it effectively winds me down. Even after exercising fairly late to bedtime, it is effective.

Very good results with this supplement. Fast service and excellent packing. Thank you.
Very pleased - Take with Vitamin B6 P-5-P for maximum results.

I love L-Tryptophan!! It's been really nice for my anxiety and depression. I'm weaning off Celexa and Valium and this has been allowing me to do so without flipping out. (IMPORTANT: Be sure to consult your physician before taking this with any anti-depressant as the combo can be toxic!) The first couple doses did make me a bit tired during the day but my body adjusted and now the tiredness has turned into a general calm. I definitely notice when I forget to take these regularly. For best effects, take these either an empty stomach or with some complex carbs. Do not take with protein or shortly before or after eating protein. Also Vitamin B6 P-5-P (Pridoxal 5' Phosphate) is essential for maximum absorption, not only for L-Tryptophan but many other amino acids. Chances are your Vitamin B Complex does NOT have the P-5-P version of B6. Mine didn't and I had to order it separately, but it was well worth it! I could really tell the difference in effectiveness!

Three family members take this daily. Helps my ADD son get to sleep and stay asleep through the night. My older son works swing-shift and had trouble getting to sleep immediately after work at 1 a.m.. Takes two L-tryptophan and no longer lays there for hours. Makes getting to college classes the next morning much easier. Help with depressing feeling too.
