True Calm is absolutely amazing! I have wanted to be free of prescription anxiety medication for years, but thought it would never be possible for me. However, within ten minutes of taking a capsule of True Calm, I felt more "Truly Calm" than I ever have taking any anxiety medication. I was able to begin withdrawing immediately. Because of the dangers of sudden withdrawal, especially seizure, I am cutting back gradually, but I take my prescription med for that reason only - I don't miss it at all. I am already taking less than half the dosage I used before receiving True Calm. I can travel without worry about refilling prescriptions away from home, and best of all, besides feeling calm, I feel happy, energetic, optimistic and never have that drugged feeling. This is the best supplement I have ever tried - I wish everyone who is bound to chemical medication could experience this freedom.

I have been on many prescription depression medications in my early - mid teens. Again when I was pregnant with my first child. But later on, I just didn't want that anymore. So I've started making my own Saint John's Wort tinctures to treat myself naturally. And it's done wonders. But I bought True Calm because I get seasonal Depression pretty bad, so I thought it's worth a shot for an extra boost. Naturally though, taking this with my Saint John's it was difficult to tell what a difference it made, until I started to see that what it did was bring my libido back! Saint John's helped level my mood for sure, but I still wasn't very affectionate or intimate. I really would have rather read a book than have sex - but this changed that. I think it works wonderfully.

Good for sleeping. I get drowsey when I take more than one. It acts fairly quickly, and lasts a few hours.

I don't remember sleeping so peacefully and waking so well rested before taking this product.

I bought this product for my dog that is extremely afraid of thunderstorms. I gave one pill and 20 min. later I had the most relaxed dog!

When I first started on this I thought it was very ordinary although it did help me feel a bit slower and calmer. At the time I had stress related ecezma. Whenever I took this, I realised my itching would stop and after a few days most of the rash was almost gone. This product was having more beneficial effects than the cortisone creams I was using. My husband also uses this along with St. John's Wort and finds it to be a great combination. I am very happy with this product

I have only been taken this product for a few weeks, but do see some good things. Even though I take this during the day, have replaced my sleeping pills with it and works! Will keep you updated on my progress

i was very skeptical to buy this but I am glad I tried it. the first week, i noticed extended sleep (I have extreme insomnia and usually only sleep 2 hours at a time). I slept 4 for the first time in months and this lasted about a week. I also take Benzos which I am trying to taper off of, and I will continue to take this along with them as I taper. I did get a bit flushed from the niacin, but I am ultra sensitive to that. I really do think this is helping...still a little premature to say for sure. worth trying, IMO.

Much better and has higher dosage than GABA Calm at a better price.

As I don't have any depression and stress, I think I don't need more than 1 capsule, so I take it before bed. Usually I sleep well and 8-9 hours per day is OK to me. But since I've got different shifts in hotel, I couldn't sleep longer than 5-6 a.m., even I go to sleep in midnight. So first I took Melatonine for 2 months and now I'm taking this True calm and finally I've got my morning sleep back.
