    NOW L-Tryptophan

    NOW Foods L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid and is found in many plants and animal proteins. The body cannot make it. It must be acquired from food. I have many food allergies that limit my intake of many foods. It helps with my insomnia and sleep apnea.


    Pros

      Better sleep. Veggie Capsule.

    Cons

      None

    Good

    5-HTP seemed too stimulating to me for some reason. So, I switched to L-Tryptophan by NOW Foods and felt an immediate difference. It does seem to help me feel better so I assume it's increasing my serotonin levels.  


    Pros

      Seems to work. Price is good.

    Cons

    Takes a while to build up but works

    L-Tryptophan by NOW eventually makes melatonin in your body. This has helped all of us sleep better and we seem to be more mellow. Excellent product, no scary additives, great price.

    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.
