really helps me wind down and fall asleep, especially when my mind is racing.
Helps restore serotonin

We find that taking even one of these on an empty stomach in late afternoon PLUS having a bedtime snack of complex carbs with NO PROTEIN not only improves our sleep, but also helps with a brighter outlook the next day. We read in a book by K. DesMaison that eating tryptophan rich foods (especially animal protein) during the day then having the complex carb bedtime snack raises levels of serotonin while we sleep. It's something about the glucose helping the tryptophan cross the blood brain barrier, and tryptophan is necessary for serotonin and melatonin production. We just can't seem to eat enough meat most of the time so we take the tryptophan. I don't really understand all that biochemistry, but it works. It took a week or so of being consistent before we started seeing consistent results. It's well worth the price and far better than taking sleeping pills or Prozac! Hallelujah!
This works well for me

I've been a restless sleeper for a long time and have tried many products to help. Tryptophan has brought the best results... I can fall asleep and sleep well without feeling "hungover" in the morning. The side effect is I'm more refreshed, calmer and happier throughout the day. I couple this with L-Theanine and/or relora when I'm especially stressed. I don't use it every night but I do find that, if I don't take it on a regular basis, my restlessness and sleeplessness return and I'm more stressed during the day. I've tried other labels for tryptophan, but of the brands iHerb carries, Source Naturals has been the most consistently potent and effective for me. Plus, the price cannot be beat.

Have used The Vitamin Shoppe's L-Tryptophan caps and had great sleep. Was buying a bunch of stuff on iherb so thought I'd try the Source Naturals caps because it was cheap - big mistake. Last night had a horrible groggy insomnia and depressed feeling. Will not touch this product again.

This product helps me fall back to sleep and continue dreaming the many times I awaken at night from my medical condition.
