I need extra magnesium to keep my heart beat regular. I take this mag citrate if I'm having trouble with constipation, and high absorption magnesium if I'm not.
I'm not so weepy when I take 2 per day. I take this product (plain d-phenylalanine) at times when the DL-phenylalanine makes me wired, or makes me wake up too early. This is neutral and doesn't make you wired OR tired.
I have been taking 2 a day for over a year. I have CFIDS, and I feel noticeably better when I take this. If I run out, I feel much worse.
I have been taking 2 a day for over a year. I have CFIDS, and I feel noticeably better when I take this. When I use up a bottle, I go without for a week because I've heard you should do that with eleuthero, and I feel a lot worse when I'm off it. I prefer to take non-standardized herbs, in their natural state.

My doc recommended this, because I was waking up at 4:00 am for an hour then going back to sleep, or just waking too early, like going to sleep at 11:30 but waking at 5:30 am. This is supposed to regulate the adrenals' cortisol output so they don't wake you up too early. It works like a charm for me. I open the capsule and take half each evening, and sleep thru the night. (Most people take 1 or 2 caps.) I tried Source Naturals brand, but it didn't work. I don't know why; I think Source Naturals is a good brand. The only difference I can see is that the ingredient in Thorne is called "Phosphatidylserine isolate" and Source N just says "Phosphatidylserine".

I'm in my mid-50's, and my lips looked a least 20 years older. This has smoothed them out noticeably. I apply it 3 or 4 times a day, and noticed a difference in a few days. It also tingles pleasantly, and makes my lips a little redder. It isn't tinted, I think it's just extra blood flow.
keeps me from stinking
