Overall Rating for L-Tryptophan 500 mg 120 Vegetarian Capsules
|(based on 1 review)|
a major difference for depression, mood, and sleep!!!!
By Glo from USA on May 16, 2012
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.
