A WONDERFUL, NATURAL PRODUCT Source Naturals L-Tryptophan, 500 mg, Tablets, 120 tablets I have suffered from insomnia since I was about 11 years old and am now 40. This is the only natural product that I have tried that works! It is not an instant fix rather, it's a cummulative effect. I guess that I really began to notice it's benefits after about one month.
I also have some anxiety and nervousness so the dose that seems to work best for me is 2-4 tablets in the morning and 4 at night. I feel less anxious and more peaceful throughout the day and actually sleep at night, without worrying about becoming dependent on a chemical sleep aid or anxiety medicine. I highly recommend this product!!...more info

Give it a try.... ...more info
Stopped my migraines I started taking the standard dosage (3 pills) of this product earlier this year, and I am now migraine free. It's not that I haven't had triggers -- I can feel the pain coming on and then a tingling sensation, and it goes away.
I also fall asleep more quickly and sleep very soundly most nights, but that's gravy compared to not needing to touch my migraine meds in many months now.
If you want to try a natural solution for giving your body building blocks for the important chemicals it needs to produce -- serotonin, melatonin, and niacin -- I highly recommend this product....more info
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Researched many products for a sleep aide, visited the organics / Nutritional stores as well and every road lead to this product. We are using it with success and have even reordered. No "after effects" the next morning - just getting a more restful night INSTEAD of waking up around 2-3 am and having difficulty falling back to sleep....more info
Resting Easy This helps me to fall asleep quickly and easily without druggy side effects. If anything I just feel calmer through the next day....more info
Works great -- but they're horse-size pills! L-Tryptophan helps both my husband and me fall asleep quickly, even when nothing else will work. Even with intractable cervical disc pain (I can't take any pain relievers, including OTC or herbals because I've developed allergies to ALL of them), this helps me to fall asleep. It doesn't reduce the pain; it just helps me sleep despite the pain. So far, this is the only thing that does that.
The only downside is the size of these pills. My husband doesn't have any trouble swallowing them, but I have to gag them down, one at a time. Fortunately, Source Naturals makes a caplet that is much easier to swallow. I'll continue to buy these for my husband, and I'll buy the caplets for myself....more info
Great for relaxation and sleep. While not a complete fix for chronic insomnia, this is very helpful when used in combination with other natural remedies like kava....more info
Source Naturals L-Tryptophan, 500 mg. My experience with Source Naturals L-Tryptophan 500 mg. capsules has been excellent. Follow the instructions on the label and you will be on your way to feeling better. I recommended it to a friend and he also started feeling better, he had used prescription antidepresants before but he wasn't getting good results, plus they had side effects he didn't want. Moreover, they were more expensive.
I personally stay away from refined sugars since I'm sensitive to them and get depressed easily, but for those instances when I feel a little bit down anyway I reach for my bottle of Tryptophan and use it for a couple of days and that's it, I feel upbeat and better again....more info
does not work this product does NOT help me fall asleep AT ALL. i tried 3 capsules before bed for a week, even took 3 capsules of valerian root together with tryptophan. nothing. i honestly tried but will have to start taking lunesta, because i can't work on 4-5 hours of sleep.
i have no way of knowing whether there's a real thing in those capsules or my insomnia just way too strong....more info
It does work...and I was a skeptic I have always been a skeptic of vitamins/supplements. However, due to constant fatigue from not getting enough sleep, I went to my doctor for help. My doctor advised this supplement much to my protest. I thought it would be a waste of money to try it. On the first night of taking the supplement, I felt immediate improvements. Its amazing what this little pill is able to generate. I am able to sleep peacefully and wake up relaxed with no side effects. L-Tryptophan has got to be the best thing since sliced bread. My husband tried it and he says he is able to go to sleep at 3 am after popping one of the pills and is able to wake up at 7 a.m. and feel as if he had 8+ hours of sleep with no grogginess....more info
