    L-Tryptophan not as expected

    I read information that L-Tryptophan would help for sleep but I have to say it didnt really work for me. Still had restless nights sleep in addition to feeling groggy in the morning. Have tried it twice and will try again on the weekend since I dont have to get up and go to work.

    Pros

    Cons

      Does not do what it claims to.

    a major difference for depression mood

    L-Tryptophan by NOW was recommended to me by my doctor. It almost immediately and drastically reduced dark moods bad depression and sleeplessness. Seems miraculous to me. Available at health food stores. Purchased the 1000mg bottle first and it makes me quite sleepy (a good thing) so I take it before bed. Am purchasing this smaller dosage to take at least one more during the day.

    Pros

      Absolutely works FAST!!

    Cons

      There is nothing about this product that I dislike

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
