Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for L-Tryptophan 1000 mg - 60 Tablets
I take one tablet of L-Tryptophan before bed-time when I can’t sleep. Definitely makes me sleepy. Some people use this for depression although for me it just makes me sleepy. I think this is a better safer option than 5-HTP.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
