Comments about NOW Foods L-Tryptophan, 1000mg, Tablets, 60 ea:
The worst thing about tryptophan is that it is so highly contested and very hard to find accurate information about. One good thing to know is that it is sold as a drug under the name Tryptan. That might help an Internet search. I have not been able to find any brand that offers this level of quality of tryptophan, but I wish I could buy a larger quantity. These 1 gram pills are easier to take than the 500mg pills. You should always make sure to take B6 with tryptophan to avoid possible bladder cancer, and to effect the synthesis of serotonin. Take on an empty stomach, and take with some carbs or sugar, enough to make insulin release because that will clear the other aminos from your bloodstream, giving your body a chance to absorb the tryptophan. You only get about 5% of what you take even doing these things so if you think tryptophan doesn't work, maybe you're not taking it right. Tryptophan is the only thing that has ever really worked for my depression, it has changed my life.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
