I've battled seasonal affective disorder for twenty years, each winter the symptoms would get worse. Finally, I came across Doctor's Best, Best 5-HTP capsules. This combined with a 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 has given me the best two winters since I was a teenager! I take two capsules of Doctor's Best 5-HTP at night. (Taking it during the day made me too tired.) No matter how exhausted I am at the end of the day, I will ALWAYS take this 5-HTP and my vitamin D3, because I know how much better it helps me feel.
I've battled seasonal affective disorder for twenty years, each winter the symptoms would get worse. 800IU of Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 has given me the best two winters since I was a teenager! I take two capsules Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 together with 5-HTP. (I also get an additional 200 IU of Vit. D from another source. ) It benefits me so much that I'm afraid to stop taking it even during the summer. Some say that high doses of Vitamin D can cause kidney stones or gall stones (don't remember which). I've heard that eating celery or a green apple daily can prevent that. I've been taking 1000IU of Vitamin D for two years now and have never had a problem. In fact, Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D 3 has been a great benefit to me!

I've been taking this product for over a year. I feel much better on days when I take it and definitely notice a difference in how I feel if I've missed a few days. A nice surprise was the benefit to increasing regularity of the bowels. My only dislike of this product is that I notice a distinct plastic taste; assume it's due to the bottle. Because of the platic taste I'm trying noni and goji juice in glass bottles by a different company. Minus the slight plastic taste it's a great tasting product with noticeable health benefits.
These tablets are HUGE for the amount of magnesium contained in each. BUT, I can take less mg of magnesium with these than I took with another brand and get similar results. Because of that, I truly believe that they absorb better than other brands. If they were smaller in size, I would've rated them 5 stars.
