Good product

Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 21, 2009 | Verified Purchase

This is the third time I have ordered this product. I have found that it really does work for my depression symptoms at a dose of 300 mg. a day. It does not help me sleep, however. Everyone is different and friends of mine have said it makes them too sleepy during the day. It is worth trying if you suffer from mild to moderate depression and don't want to take prescription antidepressant drugs.

Thanks for your feedback!

not impressed yet

I also tried this after taking 5-HTP. The 5-HTP really does help lift my depression, but does not help me sleep, so I tried the L-Tryptophan and it does help a little with sleep, but I have not noticed a big difference in either falling asleep or the quality of my sleep and it does not seem to be doing anything for my depression. I am thinking that if 5-HTP is not strong enough one needs a prescription drug for the depression. I am currently trying to find out if one can take the L-tryptophan and the 5-HTP, possibly at different times of the day, without adverse effects. On the other hand maybe one has to take the L-Tryptophan for a while before results can be seen. I have only been taking it regularly for a few days. My experience with iHerb is always dependable. I received my product in two days at a very cheap shipping rate. It is just the efficacy of the product that I seem to be having a problem with.

Thanks for your feedback!

Happy with product and service

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 22, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I cannot tell if these are doing any good or not, but this is not the sort of thing where that is really possible short term. They arrived promptly and in good condition and I love iherb and rarely buy natural products anywhere else because the prices are so much better at iherb even including the shipping and the options for free shipping are so much better than other sites. This company has really spoiled me. One note: These capsules are very large, which surprised me for being just 30 mg. But they are easy to swallow. Since it is supposed to be more absorbable, I am assuming you need less of it.

Thanks for your feedback!

Seems fine

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 16, 2011 | Verified Purchase

This product arrived when promised and was in good condition, but I have no idea if it is working or not. I am not having any problems with it. It is the sort of thing one wouldn't be able to tell any difference when taking and just have to assume that it is. Don't know if I will buy again, though.

Thanks for your feedback!

no effect

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 09, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I have been taking this two to three times a day for over two weeks and it seems to have no effect on me whatsoever. Perhaps it is a long term kind of thing. I have chronic sinus discomfort and asthma. I have not found anything natural so far that has helped my sinuses and I have tried quite a few products. Meantime I have to keep taking the generic Zytec, which does work.

Thanks for your feedback!

powerful stuff

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 09, 2011 | Verified Purchase

At just half a capsule this stuff made me flush terribly and break out in a rash all over my body. It got to where it was taking about two hours to do that and I wonder if that is a normal reaction to it or an allergic reaction. I have stopped taking it until further notice. I have read since I ordered it that large amounts of niacin can cause liver damage, just like the statins so I'm not sure it is any better for lowering cholesterol. Also, if you have to take the flushing kind for it to do the job, this was rather uncomfortable and worrisome to put up with on a regular basis.

Thanks for your feedback!

seems to be working somewhat

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 25, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I have been using this for 2 or 3 weeks now and it seemed to be helping my sinuses to be clearer, but they are stopped up again now, so I'm not sure it is really making any difference. Not a really noticeable difference. But I have hardcore sinusitis almost all the time. Probably won't buy again.

This lotion doesn't seem to soak in and just seems to lie on top of your skin. It is fragrance free and better than nothing but not great, in my opinion. I like to put it on wet skin after a shower and this just sort of slides around on top and then evaporates. Still looking for the perfect body lotion. Will not reorder this.

Thanks for your feedback!

Not sure

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 13, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I think I might be having an allergic reaction to this, which is ironic considering it is supposed to help aleviate allergy symptoms. Had to quit taking it with the Quercetin.

Thanks for your feedback!

not fragrance free

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 10, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I bought this product based on all the positive reviews. I did like the way it looked and felt on my face, and would consider it an excellent product except for the fact that it has a slight perfumey smell (not mentioned in the other reviews) that seems to get worse with time. I have allergies and chemical sensitivities and found that I could not tolerate the smell and had to throw it out. It is my understanding that a lot of people suffer from these sensitivities these days and it is a shame that it is so hard to find fragrance free products that are effective. The Shikai foot cream I also bought at the same time is fragrance free and I love it.

Thanks for your feedback!
