Solaray L-5-Hydroxy Tryptophan (100 MG) 60 Capsules
This unique product is a combination of natural L-5-hydroxytryp-tophan (L-5-HTP), Vitamins B-6 and C, and bioflavonoids. Clinical studies indicate that administration of L-5-HTP enhances synthesis of serotonin in the brain. Vitamin B-6 is the cofactor for enzymes that convert L-tryptophan to serotonin, and vitamin C catalyzes the hydroxylation of tryptophan to serotonin. In addition, this product is enterically coated to enable the capsules to bypass enzymes in the stomach which would convert L-5-HTP to serotonin prematurely (before reaching the central nervous system). The L-5-HTP in this product is a natural extract of the Griggonia bean, not produced synthetically or by a fermentation process.
As a dietary supplement, take one to four capsules daily, preferably in divided doses, with a meal or a glass of water.
Store in a cool, dry place. Not recommended for use with MAO-inhibiting antidepressant prescriptions. May cause drowsiness; do not use while driving or operating heavy equipment.

Comments about Solaray L-5-Hydroxy Tryptophan (100 MG) - 60 Capsules:
An employee at the store recomended this instead of L-Tryptophan for anxiety and relaxation because it will not make me sleepy. I got it so it can help me through school, I had heard from a friend it does help you focus but I find that focus comes from being motivated. but I stll get easily distracted, nothing like adderal, but motivation does help a little. I am clinically depressed as well and didnt want to take meds I also I have anxiety and ADD. I took two pills before a presentation I had to give and It did not help with anxiety at all, but after the presentation I felt relaxed and I def got a boost in motivation. that same day I felt like going for a run and applying for jobs. but it was short lived.
That was the first time I took it. then I continued to take one a day with breakfast and I can see an overall improvement. I dont get really sad anymore I wake up from bed without any trouble which was always a struggle. I also take a multivitamin with lots of b12 for energy and It helps to kept me going all day. It works in a way I dont really see any drastic change but I can tell that when I miss a day or two I go back to being negative and feeling hopeless. So I would say, this does work subtlely, but I havent tried taking more than one pilla day and I also think I need to take it for a longer time. Ive only been on it for 2 weeks. I do recommend it, I have severe depression and Im looking at things in a more positive light. I dont know about my sleeping cycles, I think I do sleep better when I do go to sleep but it does not make me sleepy. Maybe I should try to take another capsule later on mid day and see how that works.
lastly I have seen a decrease in cigarrete cravings which is amazing.
