After much research, I discovered that a combination of 5-HTP and Inositol creates an anti-anxiety effect, similar to that of Prozac (but of course without all of the nasty drug side effects anti-depressants cause). I am the mother of two children under four, and I take one of each in the morning and I find that I am less easily stressed, respond in a much calmer manner and am generally a less anxious person as a result.

It may supress appetite. It also decreases anxiety.

Been looking for something natural to keep the nerves under control. Other supplements haven't done much for me. I've noticed this does a good job in that regard once it takes effect. For me it seems to last all day. I'm just more mellow when I have inositol in me. I've been taking 2 caps in the morning. I've recently purchased the powder form and I like the taste of it actually and the powder seems to kick in quicker in my opinion. Overall, it's a nice supplement. Mellows me out but still keeps my mind sharp for what I need to get done each day.

My Dr suggested I try 3grams a day of Inositol for my generalised anxiety. I was sceptical but pleasantly surprised at how well they work. Occasionally I have to take a valium like say once a week or less. No side effects.

I purchased this to help with my hair re-growth after a bout with chronic Telogen effluvium...TWICE. I can't tell if it's helping with my hair but it does help with my OCD and panic attacks

I am very pleased with this product. I have been using it as part of a natural program to help with ADHD symptoms in my son. Your company has the best prices when I order them in bulk, at almost 1/2 the store price. The delivery service is always prompt.

I am taking a higher than normal dose of this for gray hair recovery. It also seems to be growing my hair and nails without causing as much acne as Biotin.
