This product really helps with anxiety and sleep; I take it at night, and it relaxes me tremendously
I suffer from social anxiety, and this has helped me tremendously. I have gone from being a true hermit to wanting to seek out social situations. This may seem like an extreme claim, but things do seem less fogged by insecurity and overthinking after taking this once a day with a cup of coffee. I am more alert and dialed in. I've also been sleeping much better and am not driven to the point of fatigue that I typically would be at the end of a stressful work day.
The pills come in a lovely coconut oil casing and are well kept in their case. I have no problems with it. I'm have an interest in products that help my health and I really like this one. It's really easy to take, just like a vitamin. I've told my significant other about it, because she gets anxiety easily, and this helps! Thank you Suntheanine!
This product works great for decreasing anxiety!
I bought this product for my mom to help her sleep as she's had insomnia for many years. Though this product has not helped her get more sleep, it has been a real blessing in helping her to have far less anxiety overall. Plus, she is sleeping more peaceful with way less toss and turning through the night, so her quality of sleep has increased significantly!
I had never heard of this supplement until my D.O. recommended it to me last fall. I have generalized anxiety and panic disorder and have suffered with these conditions my whole life (almost 40 years). I have a prescription medication I take "as needed", but I'd never been on a daily medication for my anxiety because it ebbs and flows and I didn't feel like I needed meds every day. But it was a constant battle. My Dr. asked if I'd try a herbal supplement and I said "Why not?". I've been taking this brand of L-theanine once a day in the morning since January 2017. I know reactions will vary, but for me, taking L-theanine has changed my life! I noticed the difference within a couple of days, I just felt calmer and more focused and just...normal? Like, this must be how the non-anxious people live! I used to have flare-ups of anxiety from mild to major nearly everyday before I started taking this. I used to get anxious just doing "normal" things, like going to the mall or out with friends, or going out of town for the weekend. And bigger things, like starting a new job or big life changes, would cause even bigger bouts of anxiety and panic. Now, I'm able to do all those things that used to trigger my anxiety and very rarely feel anxious. I still do get anxious sometimes, but when I do the onset and duration are generally much milder and easier to handle and I haven't had a full-blown panic attack since starting this supplement. I still have my prescription medication if I need it, but my use of it has gone from about 2 pills per week to 1-2 pills per month. Also, I can take it on an empty stomach and haven't noticed any unpleasant side effects, it doesn't make you tired or spacey or anything, it just works! ALSO, I WAS NOT PAID FOR THIS REVIEW. I'm just a regular person who's suffered from anxiety my whole life. I recommend this supplement to everyone I know, I love it and I'm so glad my D.O. recommended it to me!
Currently ordering my 4th (possibly 5th) bottle of this stuff and I think it's about time to write a review on this.
I did some research on natural supplements to increase sense of calm and to reduce anxiety, and I found the L-Theanine supplement to be one option to try, so I ordered some from Amazon. I've been taking them for a few days, and I'm happy to report I've noticed an improvement in my mood/state of mind. I do generally feel calmer after an hour or two taking these supplement, and I haven't noticed any side effects thus far. I'm also trying to keep my coffee consumption down to a cup or two, which probably helps. Whether or not it is a placebo effect, I am happy that this product seems to make a difference for me. It is a nice alternative to taking a prescribed anti-anxiety medication from your doctor, which some can be addictive.
Worked really well to ease the comedown symtoms when taken after my Rx adhd medication . Helped relax my nerves . Works well
Helps keep me relaxed and the stress down. I suffer from anxiety and this helps takes the edge off so I can focus on my daily tasks
I use this product daily for my R.A, joint pain and anxiety/stress. It works great!!
Sports Research is the best and I like this L-Theanine. I feel like it reduces my stress and anxiety a little. I'm fat, single, and unemployed... but since taking L-Theanin, I don't seem to care very much! I was going to start making runs to Oregon for weed, but I think the L-Theanine has done the trick! Go America!
Does what is says. Takes the edge off of anxiety. You honestly need to deal with the source of your stress, but this does take the edge off, making it more manageable. Hope it continues to be effective after long term use, only time will tell.
Help's calm you down when dealing with anxiety.
I began taking these a few weeks ago. I started them for issues I was having with anxiety, stress and worry. I have noticed a difference in my anxiety level. I feel calmer and better able to handle stress that comes my way. I am happy with the product and will continue taking these. They are a much better alternative to the prescriptions out there for anxiety that gave me terrible headaches.
If these vitamins are a placebo, then they are working! I definitely feel my anxiety lessening and more alert & relaxed. I've only been taking them for a couple of weeks but noticed the results immediately. Very pleased! Definitely recommend!!
I love this and how much better I feel. I had been diagnosed with the Epstein Barr Virus (level 5-6) which severely impacted my nervous system and led to anxiety/feelings of PTSD even though no trauma had occurred. A specialist had recommend L-Theanine but to make sure that rice was not used as a mixer since grains of any kind feed the virus. I loved that this only used Coconut Oil and i can not even begin to describe how much more relaxed and calm I feel after only 3 weeks of taking this supplement. I will definitely recommend this to everyone I know. I have a large following on Instagram due to my Yoga/Life Coaching background and I believe this product is the best one out there and will help alot of people.
I love it!! This works so incredibly well. I would highly recommend you try this if anxiety is something you ever have to deal with.
I noticed that my brain fog, unfocused moments and anxiety during the day had decreased.This product really helped. Thanks, SportsResearch for such a great product!
Good product. Purchased many times. Would recommend as trusted brand.Best of all l theanine. I'll try cheaper ones and always come back to you 🤗 I have anxiety and it really helps calm me down with no jittery feeling. I take it when I have to be somewhere passenger in any vehicle I'm not controlling and whenever a stressful situation arises. It's safe and non habit forming. What else could you ask for?
Completed the first bottle and ordered another. Seems to work as I have less anxiety since I have started taking this supplement. Going to continue and see if it continues to improve
I was looking for a natural supplement to help lessen the effects of anxiety. My doctor suggested L-theanine. I like the sports research brand because it is made with coconut oil.
Fantastic product-- I used another brand at first, but I really feel the effect more with this one. Helps with chronic anxiety, ADHD, and sleep issues. I feel it really takes the edge off of things. I'm surprised more haven't heard about this-- I've already ordered it for THREE of my other friends-- two who struggle with anxiety, and one who I recommended take it for just overall wellness...I even told my gym owner about it after he revealed to me he struggled with ADHD. I really believe in this product and will be buying it again.
Great product that helps with my anxiety during high stress work days!
I got the sample of this after reading the reviews, & I just received my full bottle & am so excited! I lately have really been struggling with anxiety & both meds the dr gave me had me so down & drowsy I couldn’t even take them because I couldn’t function normally. This has taken the anxiety I experience to an all time low PLUS I HAVE ENERGY & am not falling asleep at work or constantly running to the bathroom. Again I have tried about 5 of Sports Research supplements & their sweat sweat kit. I use each piece daily & will continue biting their products until I can’t anymore!
This supplement works within 15-20 on an empty stomach. It is great for anxiety and depression. My teenage daughter and I have been taking it and will continue. It is really amazing. I would like to thank the company for doing a fantastic job.
After researching.. I found this company that offers the purest form of l theanine..I normally take holy basil, magnesium calm, nootropics, GABA,, melatonin for stress & anxiety. ( I switch occasionally to give my body different forms of nutrients that my body might be deficient in..) This is an excellent supplement that brings healing to the body -as we all know we are not getting proper nutrients die to poor diets. Even if you have optimal diet habits...supplementation is always vital ( accdg to dr. Joel Wallach) I highly recommend this product!! I appreciate honorable companies that produce the highest quality of supplementation !
Great supplement. Evened out my temprement. Get upset less often. Focus improved. Less anxiety. Have been taking for 3-4 weeks. Egg shaped liquid gel capsule. Easy to swallow. Take one first thing in the morning. Will be re-ordering for sure. For rest of my days. I would highly recommend.
This has helped me in many ways! I feel more relaxed and clear minded. It helps take the edge off my anxiety. It is by no means a complete cure but it does help me. Thank you.
This is an amazing product. I thought for certain that I was going to have to try a prescription for my anxiety and this is perfect. You definitely need to follow the directions and only take on an empty stomach but you will notice the difference immediately. I also take asgandha and I am completely satisfied.
Been using L-Theanine for a few years now and this stuff is very effective. Really helps me in stressful situations. Definitely would recommend giving it a shot.
Always take with morning coffee and sometimes before sleep. Does wonders for jitters and anxiety in a subtle way.
This is by far the best l-Theanine that I have tried!! This Suntheanine is great for easing symptoms of anxiety, as well as, putting you in a chill-mode (without any drugged-out feeling). I use it as a sleep aid too. Great Buy!!
I don't know if it's just the placebo effect but I feel much more relaxed! I also take 100mg of Zoloft which helps with my depression but not so much with the anxiety. This definitely had helped me be more calm and focused and not just worrying about the future. This really is great stuff and I'd highly recommend it to anyone!
Simply fascinating product! Helps relieve stress and anxiety.
Supplementing with L-theanine has been a lifesaver! I had been struggling with public speaking anxiety for years, and hated taking the conventional pharmaceuticals with a side-effect list a mile long. L-theanine has given great results without any worry about side effects!!
I was skeptical at first. I was coming off of traditional anxiety type meds and wanted a more natural approach. This doe the job with none of the side effects. I am on my 4th bottle and will continue to purchase.
helps my anxiety in a big way
Definitely works for anxiety and stress but can make you a little too numb sometimes
I've only been using the product for a week, but so far have not noticed a significant effect, good or bad. I'm optimistic it will help some with anxiety symptoms, in addition to a prescription medication I take already. I've read good things about this brand and supplement.
Interesting note: There is a Suntheanine anti-anxiety medication for pets. According to that medication insert, 200 mg daily may be given to dogs 55 pounds and up. So this dose of 200 mg seems very safe for humans. Try it with green tea in AM for calmness, focus, mental clarity, and increased productivity!
I've been taking L-Theanine for a couple months now to help alleviate the jitters/anxiety I get when I drink coffee/energy drinks. This product works great for this! Unlike some other misleading L-Theanine supplements, this one has real Suntheanine in it, which makes a significant difference in its overall effectiveness.
I absolutely think this is the best grade theanine i have ever had l theanine has changed my life the panic attacks i was having where killing me a little each time inside every time i had one it got a little worse this product has gave me my life back thank you i recommend this product to all of you that are seeking to get ride of anxiety and panic attacks it feels so good to BREATHE AGAIN
This works great to keep the anxiety at bay and not make you tired or strung out - love it!!
I've tried several different companies l-theanine, but this was the first true suntheanine product I've tried and I've seen a huge difference. This is my second bottle from sports research. I take this for anxiety which I've dealt with daily the last few months, and in conjunction with other vitamins, herbs and minerals I take, this stuff really works. I've never tried it with caffeine (because my anxiety makes me sensitive to it), but it alone makes me focus and relax, just like it says it does. I'll keep purchasing this product for sure.
It may work for some, but this makes me drowsy and sleepy. I took it to increase my focus and attention, for that - I find it is not a good supplement (probably because I am used to caffeine). But if you have anxiety, stress or have trouble sleeping, this may is a good option. I now take it before bed to help me sleep. Overall, its a good product if you need a relaxant, or have trouble sleeping.
I have had anxiety and depression issues for years now, and have only recently discovered how far L-theanine goes in curing symptoms of both of these. The first product I used with L-theanine only had about 50 mg per capsule, and it worked great for a while, but when I stepped up to SunTheanine's product that had 200 mg per cap, I noticed a big difference.
To like this theanine very much. Helps with sleep, anxiety, sense of well being. Softgel is slightly bigger around than I planned refer but I gently mash with back teeth to swallow more comfortably.... I don't have to do that to be able to swallow but feel more comfortable if I do.
I am taking this for anxiety, one per day. Sometimes two if I know I will be under a little more stress. I do feel it helps keep me calm instead of prescribed medication. I have been using this product over a year.
I use this in addition to other medications for anxiety. This was recommended by my doctor to add as a supplement. This product adds enough to bring things down to a level where I am calmer and clearer to focus on life. Will continue to buy. I have used almost the entire bottle since purchasing at beginning of summer. Wanted to make absolute sure of my opinion and how my experience was before posting a review.
L-theanine is probably my favorite supplement of all because I can actually feel it working. I struggle with anxiety and l-theanine is the closest thing I've found to benzos honestly. I have tried all of the different supplements that are said to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety but I've only experienced it from l-theanine. I take it with coffee in the morning and sometimes before bed. It doesn't necessarily make me feel tired but I do get a warm glowy feeling and can focus on reading a book or doing a task that is usually daunting because of racing thoughts.
read reviews on a lot of different brands of L-Theanine but decided to try this brand because of their great reviews. I've taken a few different kinds of L-Theanine but so far I really like this one. Because It's only been 4 days, I'm giving this 4 stars as I want to see how I am in a couple of weeks BUT, after 4 days I can say I that the daily, almost constant low level of anxiety I've been feeling has been reduced by about 75%. I've also decided to try their Blueberry product as well.
Little expensive but worth it! I tried it for the anti-anxiety benefits but it also helps with focus if you take it with coffee or a high quality caffeine pill. Works great! High quality supplements. Well worth the price. I've tried other brands but not as effective so I've come back to Sports Research Suntheanine.
This is the best natural product for anxiety and enabling better sleep at night. I have bought this product twice now and will continue use it. I believe it is the best quality out there.
Purchased this for my 16-year-old daughter. She had been having a lot of anxiety about sports, to the point she would break down in tears just talking about the up coming track season and the pressure she was feeling to do well from her coaches and other parents. Feeling like she would disappoint so many people if she didn't make it back to State this year. I was desperate to help her when I saw this product. It does seem to be helping her. She can actually talk about track now, and is making goals for the season. No more tears. Yay! Other things she is doing to overcome her anxiety: Doterra oils, meditation/visualization, yoga, and seeing our chiropractor who uses the NAET techniques.
It was recommended that I utilize L-Theanine to assist with nervousness, anxiety attacks, and overall stress management. My first purchase of L-Theanine was a product that was 4 times the price. It worked but this Suntheanine works even better and with the price 1/4 of the other its a win win.
I bought these after reading about things to help with anxiety because my anxiety had started getting worse with additional stresses added at work. I had a weekend off during which I got little sleep because of anxiety. I started taking this in the morning and GABA before bed, and I've noticed that I've been sleeping deeper than I had been as well as falling asleep quicker. I've still been tired at work, so that hasn't helped there. I do think that I feel calmer in light of everything that's going on, and I'll continue to take it to see if anything else improves as I've only been taking it a week. I've only had problems once swallowing it, I usually have trouble swallowing pills. It did get stuck this morning, but usually it's not bad compared to other things I take.
A very unbalanced life with stress all over the place and 10 years as a professional and boom... panic attacks!
I was recently advised by my doctor to try L-theanine for anxiety and depression. This product has had a calming effect on me and I just love the quality of this product!
I have severe anxiety and I have felt a slight difference in my ability to relax faster
I like that these are encapsulated in coconut oil, as L-Theanine is a fat-soluble amino acid. It's all natural (from green tea), and promotes relaxation without causing drowsiness, so it's perfect to use during work hours. Works great for caffeine jitters and occasional anxiety.
This product does help ease anxiety naturally. Love it!
I love this product. It has helped quite a bit with my anxiety. I've used another brand of L-Theanine before(it wasn't the patented Suntheanine version), and this is definitely better. I liked that it is made with organic coconut oil, as L-Theanine is a fat-soluble compound. I use it daily as a preventative measure. I'm not sure if it would completely eradicate a panic attack, but it would certainly help. I've tried over a dozen different supplements and formulas for anxiety- this and magnesium help the most. Highly recommend this product!
I love this product. I’ve been ordering this for 2 years. It helps with my anxiety attacks and stress. It was recommended by a friend who also uhas been taking it for years.
Priced right and is a quality product. I like that they use coconut oil to suspend the L-Theanine instead of sometime of binder. Helps control anxiety naturally and doesn't make me into a zombie.
been taking l-theanine to manage my stress and anxiety levels and it has definitely helped out.
I had some medical issues several months ago that left me with crippling anxiety attacks. I couldn't tell the difference between these anxiety attacks and the menopausal hot flashes I used to have. They're brutal!! I started taking these supplements two days ago, and have not had one anxiety attack since then. It's wonderful. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that 200mg is too strong. I can still function, just not as well as I should. Makes me feel somewhat "loopy". Alas, I'm going to have to try 100mg capsules, but if you can function at a high level while taking these I highly recommend them. Sports Research is a top notch company and so are their products. I just don't think these capsules lend themselves to being cut in half.
I buy this product for my husband who suffers from anxiety. The non-gmo is extremely important to us and this product is non-gmo. My husband really likes this product. We have bought others, but they do not work the same. My husband notices a difference with this one only. He really likes this product. It doesn't make him feel funny and it mixes well with his allergy medicine and his vitamins. He is pleased with this product.
Works great for my dog's anxiety
I have been using this product for quite some time as part of my regimen to help reduce anxiety and allow me to sleep at night. Along with some other supplements I now hardly ever need Xanax at night, and instead of insomnia I only wake up a couple times at night and fall back asleep easily. It's been a life-changer.
I stopped taking anti-depressants over a month ago, and I was looking for a way to lower my anxiety naturally. L-Theanine is a great product and helps me feel calmer. I'm happy to find a natural supplement that helps me feel better.
I love this product! I take it once in the morning and once at night for my anxiety and metal fog. I do take days off of it every now and then. When my anxiety creeps in, I take it and I feel a general sense of calmness within 30 minutes. I recommend it!
As a fellow anxious person, I can say that, at least for me, these have helped. I have tried several anti-anxiety medications to battle with my social anxiety. Some made me feel loopy and made me just act goofy and sloppy, making me nervous that I don't really have control over my actions. Others give me a headache and make me feel sick. And some just don't work. This is the best option I have tried. Without making me feel out of control or sick, these pills allow me to do everyday tasks like approach other people, send emails, make phone calls, etc. without as much anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety in any form, do yourself a favor and at least try these out.
I started taking this last month because my new job was causing me anxiety and stress. It really works. Keeps me focused for several hours and not so stressed out. Taking it in the morning with a glass of water and a cup of coffee.
My 8yo has anxiety and ADHD and I started giving him one of these each morning. They REALLY help keep him focused and calm during school work (we homeschool). He finds them easy to swallow--doesn't even need water, as the coating doesn't get sticky when damp.
I can tell it helps with my anxiety and concentration. Keeps me focused and calms me at the same time. I love it, I could tell a difference right away.
Great supplement for those with social anxiety or tension.
Great product! I suffer from anxiety, and this has really helped my mental well being along with boosting productivity. L theanine can cause headaches, but that doesn't happen often if you have a cup of coffee with it.
honestly, this stuff is amazing. It helps keep me focused and in a good mood for the duration of the day, and I would highly recommend it to anybody having issues with anxiety, staying energetic and alert for the day, and just generally any bad mood you may be having. this stuff rocks.
I take it in the morning on an empty stomach about an hour before I have my morning coffee. I’ve noticed a small decline in my day to day anxiety and less irritability throughout the day.
I started taking this product to help with some anxiety. Right away it helped ease any anxiety I was feeling. I also found that I had a bit more mental focus. I did find that if i take them often (several times in a week) I don't experience the focus bonus, but it still helps to ease the anxiety. The pills are small and go down easily without any taste.
This is a very helpful supplement for calming and focusing. Recommended for all kinds of anxiety. Price of this product is reason.
This product works GREAT! I was having some anxiety and my doctor suggested I take L-Theanine (Suntheanine). I bought my first bottle of another brand at the doctors office. I discovered 400mg (I take 2- 200mg in the morning) has helped tremendously. I am much more relaxed. Once that bottle was gone, I ordered the Sports Research brand. Works exactly the same at more than half the price. Win, Win!!
I have struggled with anxiety and poor sleep since my early twenties. After growing sick and tired of the side effects from prescription meds, I have finally found a safe, healthy alternative with L-Theanine. Very satisfied customer!
I purchased this because of numerous reviews on reddit boards dealing with anxiety. I started taking l-theanine and I have to say that it's been a week now and while the aid is mild, it is there. For a natural product I have zero complaints, as matter of fact I much rather work with something that is mild to help as I work on dealing with anxiety through programs and therapy than to take prescription medication and use it as a crutch.
I have been using the Suntheanine L-Theanine off and on for some time now. The supplement has a mild but positive impact on reducing anxiety. Thanks for your great products.
I really like the l-theanine. I take it before I go to bed if I’ve had a stressful day or sometimes when I wake up with a lot of anxiety and I need to focus. I don’t think it solves the problems 100% but it definitely takes the edge off for me!
Very excited to start using this. My naturopath suggested I use this to tame my anxiety. Great company!
I'm a big fan of suntheanine for anxiety and sleep. I have found that this brand works more quickly than the others I have tried. I can take 2 if I'm feeling uptight and be relaxed with no side effects in about 20 minutes. It usually takes an hour with the other brands, except the natural factors chewable which is about tied; unfortunately there are lots of other undesirable ingredients in that one, including sugars so you can't take it at night after brushing your teeth. I also use 2 every night to help sleep, so this is am important consideration.
This has helped my anxiety go away completely!
I've been using another brand of L-Theanine for over a year. I purchased Sports Research L-Theanine from Amazon when it was on sale. I took it thinking it would be the same as the product I had been using. Was I surprised! Even though the Sports Research L-Theanine is the same strength, I immediately noticed a big difference. I feel calmer and can handle stressful situations more easily. I also seem to have more energy then I had. I don't know if it's the Coconut oil which wasn't in my previous brand or if it's because the L-Theanine in this product is the original Suntheanine branded product, which I've been told is the one to use. My previous brand did not use the Suntheanine brand of L-Theanine. But, the Sports Research brand works so much better than the one I had been using. I'm sold on the Sports Research Suntheanine. Ill continue to buy this brand and I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel more relaxed. It says to take one daily, but I take one in the morning for daily stress and anxiety and one in the evening to help me relax before bedtime. It wont make you drowsy, but you'll feel more relaxed and you drift off to sleep normally without having to use sleep remedies which often leave you feeling sleepy the next morning. I've read that its safe to take up to 600 mg. Per day, but it's really up to each individual how much you take. Especially if your taking any other medications. In that case I would ask your health professional how much to take. But for most people who deal with anxiety, like myself, it's a safer alternative then using prescription drugs to get the same result. I try to use natural products for most conditions before turning to prescriptions.
I have went through a bottle and would definitely say this product works for stress and anxiety. I take 1-2 a day, on a empty stomach with water. I feel a mild, but noticeable, decrease in anxiousness and tension. Not a cure all, but it definitely helps you relax after a stressful day. I will continue to use this product.
I take this every morning and it takes the edge off of my daily worries. T doesn't completely remove my anxiety but I definitely feel a difference and I can feel the worry creep back in when I don't take it. I have no side effects from it so it's a great tool for me. Definitely recommend trying it.
I've been extremely pleased with this product. Its helped with my day to day anxiety. I take it every morning along with the EFA and fish oil.
Really helped me with being calm at work. My sleep is funky so hard to gauge here to be fair. Definitely noticed reduction in social anxiety. Can talk to the bosses like they are peers. Not sure if that's necessarily a good thing but I think so! :-)
I’ve been using it for over a month now and it definitely helps with my sleep at night and my anxiety just in general.
Best L-theanine I've tried so far. I suffer from chronic anxiety and this definitely helps a lot! !! I take one 3x a day and it helps me sleep better as well.
Sports Research has created a quality L-theanine supplement. This one tends to be on the expensive side for L-theanine due to using suntheanine, which is basically just a patented form of synthesis. I supplement this product on an empty stomach with a cup of coffee, this reduces the negative aspects of caffeine while promoting relaxation, anxiety suppression, focus, etc. The only side effect I have is I have noticed an increase of the vividness of my dreams which I have seen in anecdotal reports, but I have to say my sleep quality has increased drastically. This product is a winner.
I've had social anxiety my entire life, and after a couple of weeks using this, I can tell that it really does take the edge off. I was hesitant to leave a review a first, but it really does help the mind racing I usually have after social situations.
I bought this for my teenage daughter to help with anxiety, rather than putting her on prescription drugs. It works very well for her. She takes one in the morning before school, and on really stressful days, she'll take another. It helps at bedtime to calm her mind down, but find that it works best at nighttime in conjunction with other natural remedies. My husband and I took it when we were in the middle of a very stressful cross-country move, and found I was not so wound up and able to handle things better. I chose this brand because I liked the addition of the coconut oil and beeswax. Highly recommended for general anxiety as well as when life gets a little stressful.
I don't usually write reviews, but I am writing one for this product because it really seems to help me and I want to share that with other people who are looking for help, too. I really do feel a calmness about 15-30 minutes after I take one of these pills in the morning on an empty stomach. I get some food in my system about 30 minutes after taking the pill. I don't feel like all of worries evaporate or anything, but I feel a slight edge is taken off. It is worth to me to continue taking these until I feel I no longer need them. If you're looking for a natural way to combat stress and/or anxiety, I do recommend trying these, in particular, because of the Suntheanine and because this brand uses organic products in the extra ingredients, too.
After one night of using Sports Research L-Theanine and I feel fantastic. I used to suffer from panic attacks and anxiety and L-theanine was instrumental in helping to stop that. I tend to think too much and get anxious in the evenings and decided to take an L-theanine last night. Glad I did. After about 15 minutes I felt so much more relaxed and clear headed and ready for a good night's sleep. I love the fact that only one pill was 200mg which makes the bottle last so much longer. I think tonight I will increase the dose to 400mg and see how I feel. Also really happy with the fact that they use coconut oil in the formula. The smell is not fantastic but like Mr. Miyagi said "Smell bad, work good." Really happy with the product and will continue to order this.
I was skeptical about purchasing this product at first, but decided to go for it since the reviews were pretty good. I've tried it before going to work since I usually get anxiety dealing with people. I was able to relax and handle a customer without any anxiety. It's insane considering the fact that this isn't a prescribed drug. This product is all natural and I don't have to worry about taking prescribed drugs that have side effects. It's only been a week and so far so good.
Bought for my daughter who has anxiety, it wasn't a miracle by any mean, however, it did take the edge off and she takes it every day and says it helps.
Calms my mind, helps me get restful sleep, and reduces anxiety during the day.
My husband has been taking 2 to 3 tablets per day for anxiety. Seems to be helping a lot.
This has made such difference in my life. My mood is much better and I have no anxiety. I will definitely continue to use this product!
I suffer from moderate to severe anxiety, but I'm not willing to take xanax or any other anti-anxiety meds because of the side effects. I have tried other natural remedies as well as other brands of l-theanine, but didn't see a real difference until I started taking this brand. I started using it daily during the holiday season and I have found that I am much more relaxed and able to cope. I do take one in the morning and one at night, which is higher than recommended on the bottle but well below the max dose. I am on my 4th bottle now and I plan on continuing to use this long-term. To anyone thinking of trying l-theanine, I strongly recommend going with this brand- it may be a little more expensive than some of the others, but it works way better.
So impressed with this company! I've been taking these for less than a week and can already tell a difference. I've had ongoing issues with anxiety and depression for 29 years, and finding the right medication to allow me to function in society has been a huge ordeal filled with more misses than hits.
I was happy to be educated on the benefits of L-Theanine for relaxation with out drowsiness. I get anxiety frequently and since taking this supplement have experienced a reduction in it as well has sleeping much better. When researching what company to buy from, Sports Research had the best quality for the price. Will buy from again.
I have recently been trying to look for supplement alternatives to medications for my anxiety. I have really been trying to avoid hardcore medications as much as possible, as I have read numerous studies about the long-term effects on the brain.
My sister suffers from anxiety after something traumatic she experienced. She hadn't been able to sleep a full night for over a year. When she told me about her issues I decided to search for something natural that she could take to help her sleep. This did just that. She's calmer and can now get a full night's sleep. She just asked me to order another bottle for her. I'm so thankful that they actually worked.
A co-worker recommended I try this product and it has been amazing for my mood and anxiety. I had to purchase some for myself!
I suffer from severe depression and anxiety and have tried many different prescribed medications. I don't like the effects of most so my doctor suggested I try Suntheanine. I have been taking this for about a week and I must admit I feel less anxious and more relaxed so now I can get to sleep much easier than before. It doesn't make me sleepy but being more relaxed keep my mind from racing and I can finally fall asleep easier. I take one in the morning and one in the evening. I received this product at a discount for an unbiased review.
I have found conflicting info re L-Theanine, Some folks say they like it because it reduces anxiety without inducing sleepiness. Others say they take it at bedtime to help them sleep. Sports Research L-Theanine seems to make me sleepy sometimes; sometimes not. Regardless of that, I found the supplement to be helpful overall with calming. I liked the coconut oil incorporated into this supplement, as well.
I have been taking L Theanine, purchased from Amazon, daily for close to a month. I've taken it first thing in the morning before playing tennis as well as before going to bed. It has a subtle but significant calmative effect that contributes to increased focus, reduced anxiety and enhanced performance. When I take it in the evening, the relaxation it produces enables me to sleep more soundly and restfully. Both my wife and I take it and find it very helpful.
Quality L-Theanine product. Helps to reduce my anxiety. Typically take one in the morning and then another in the afternoon if needed.
I was skeptical but decided to try it based on the reviews. I can definitely feel a difference for what I would describe as minor anxiety issues. I feel like it slows down my heart beat, allows me to speak in a more calm and controlled manner. I take 1 in the morning with water on an empty stomach and take an additional one later only when faced with a stressful situation, 45 minutes to hour prior.
helps me to sleep, less anxiety
I initially bought this for one of my dog's anxiety. It seems to be helping him. My wife has tried it to reduce anxiety as well with mild results. I tried it a couple of times and felt the results. It reduced my stress and made me tired. I took it at night so that was a bonus. I drink a lot of tea so l am used to the feeling of calm of Theanine. The caffeine in tea helps keep me awake. I will continue buying it to see if we continue to get favorable results.
This product, along with 5HTP (plus b6) has changed my life. My anxiety is at bay, I'm able to focus and accomplish everything I need to day to day- WITHOUT being tired! I take this every morning on an empty stomach and my 5HTP before bed. Even just 1 dose of this alone brought me relief. My anxiety wasn't magically cured, but my racing heart was much calmer and I didn't have racing thoughts during my crazy work day. After a week or so of consistent use, I felt motivated and powerful against my anxiety, all while maintaining a happy-go-lucky calm.
Works like a charm. I don't take these for stress, but when my mind just won't shut off at night and I can't fall asleep, I take one and sleep like a baby without feeling groggy like sleeping pills often make me feel. If you have sleep anxiety, I highly recommend this product.
I suffer from health related anxiety and because of this, I often wake up frequently during the night and rarely feel well rested - of course, this makes my anxiety even worse! Before resulting to Rx meds, I decided to give this a try. I've only taken 1 so far and it definitely helped.. I started feeling more relaxed after 35-40 minutes and noticed some of the health anxiety symptoms I get are disappearing (perceived weakness and fatigue).. If this keeps up, I'm sold! I'm excited to see how it helps my sleep tonight.. I'll update after a week or so when I've been taking it longer.
Bought this for my anxiety and worked like a charm. After being on many anxiety meds and trying every anxiety reducing technique on the planet, this product is just amazing. Within 30-45mins, you just feel... no anxiety. It doesn't make you sleepy or tired, just calm. It does it's job so well that many may not even notice it unless they are actively paying attention, but isn't that the point? A product that reduces anxiety to where you don't even notice. Perfect.
Let me say this stuff has been great for my stress I ordered some until I get an doc appt for xanax and after taking it for 2 days I feel so much more relaxed ..I suffer from a racing mind and general anxiety plus panic attacks this stuff has kept me from pulling my hair out 🙆 🙂🙂 and yes this is my own opinion..
I was somewhat leary if this would work for me or not. Been have anxiety and stress at work for several years now. Get dizzy and overwhelmed, heart racing, not able to function. Have gone to 2 separate doctors and prescribed anxiety meds that I tired and found it worse than the symptoms I was already dealing with from the anxiety. Not only was I still dizzy, I could not function and scared half to death. I did some research online and found L-Theanine and was suggested to get the one with Suntheanine. I started with one a day at bed time, but found I was needing one at breakfast also. I have been on it for about a week now, one in morning and at bedtime, and I seem to be more relaxed and not dizzy and overwhelmed. I hope L-Theanine is my answer to what I have been dealing with. I need to stay clear and focused for my job and no way I could take the stuff the doctors were prescribing. I am very hopeful with this product.
I take one daily and it really has helped me to level out and focus. It reduces my anxiety and I like that in comes in a gel cap with coconut oil!
Pills were bigger than expected, had to get adjusted to that. I did notice my anxiety going down a notch. Only taken for a couple days but getting results so far.
I've had anxiety for years and finally a few years ago finally weaned myself off all prescription medications I was on. I've been searching for a more natural supplement I do believe I have found it! Taking this in the morning every day makes me feel more relaxed and calm and ready to face my day!! Love it!
Easy to swallow soft gels, I take this product for my anxiety. I switched from capsules to soft gels and I like these better.
My naturopath had me on 200mg 2x a day of a brand he sold in office with the same suntheanine but it wasn't helping my crippling anxiety and seemed to make it worse. it had some additives and fillers so I went hunting for my own clean theanine. I found this one and havent looked back. at the dose he told me to take with sports research brand it took the slightest edge off of my anxiety and I noticed it right away. now I take therapeutic sized doses of 4 capsules (800mg) 1-2x a day depending on my stress and anxiety levels. I've recommended it to all of my friends and they love it too!
Helps promote calm & dampens anxiety. Two months in and it seems to work. Effect is definitely dose-dependent with two pills in the morning working much better than one. Would recommend.
This product works from the first day I took it. I notice significantly less anxiety through the day and in general feel more relaxed and focused. My girlfriend started taking it with me and she likes the effect as well. Would definately recommend!
After extensive research, I decided to try L-Theanine for treatment of ADHD and Anxiety for my 11 and 12 year old daughters. Although both of them have both conditions, the 11 year old has more extreme or "classic" ADHD and mild anxiety, while the 12 year old has milder ADHD (mostly as impulsivity) and severe anxiety. Both of them were prescribed Adderall, but I have avoided giving it to them so far because I wanted to see what alternatives that I could find first.
This stuff is amazing. I really like this companies other products and decided to try their brand of l-theanine after trying another brands. Well, wow! I certainly lot feel a LOT more relaxed through the day. I take it in the morning with coffee as I heard it helps the nootropic effects of this work better. It seems so. I have a very level clear head. I do notice that by noon or late after noon I am pretty sleepy. I'm going to give it a few more days and see if I get more use to it, otherwise I'll try taking it at night. But overall, this is great! If you have anxiety and are tightly wound, so to speak, try this!
I take it one time a day as I had previously heard about l-theanine as a supplement due to chronic anxiety and social anxiety. I have been enjoying the product and it really eliminates the constant buzz and headaches that anxiety would give me. Will recommend to others who are also suffering from anxiety.
The Sports Research L-Theanine supplement has helped with lowering my anxiety tremendously, as well as heighten my focus and mental clarity. I’ve tried other brands, but I get the maximum effect from the Sports Research L-Theanine- plus, it’s formulated with coconut oil, which I love!
WOW! Cannot believe how quickly the relaxing effect takes. An almost instant relief for anxiety, and not drowsy.
I've been more focused without the anxiety feeling that I get when I'm overwhelmed with my daily work load. It's allowed me to step back and reevaluate what I need to get done and organize my day. So happy with this purchase!
Not dramatic but it seems to help with everyday anxiety.
I prefer taking this form of L-Theanine because it does not have fillers in the pill. And it definitely works. I take one in the morning and two at night. I have seen a decrease in anxiety. As a note, my anxiety is more stress related than ongoing. I believe it does help with sleep as well.
I do not recommend this as a Xanax replacement, but an alternative. These took me about an hour to kick in. Typically, I ingest/smoke marijuana but wanted to try something different so I turned to these. As I have only taken 2 tablets thus far, I couldn't tell you how this product performs in the long run. So far though, I am a happy camper!
I take this most of the mornings to help me control my anxiety. Other times I take it when I feel anxious or when I’m having an anxiety/panic attack and it helps me calm down. This product has been a life saver. I was on Lexapro for a while and it gave me side effects such as getting emotional, gaining weight, and getting angry or depressed. This supplement does not come with any side effects and solve he problem as soon as you take it. Thank you SR!
Gentle on your stomach. Can take without food. Always less stressed almost instantly when I take this.
Absolutely love this brand! This product helps me relax! I have chronic insomnia and anxiety. This product doesn't take away all the symptoms but it does help me control it much better than before!
my experience: made me feel indifferent to experiencing social anxiety.
Reduces anxiety and enhances sleep.
This product is amazing. I haven't had any anxiety attacks since I've been taking it (and I normally have several a day).
I am a skeptic when it comes to things like this, but my doctor recommended I try L-Theanine to help with anxiety. It is not a placebo, this stuff works. I now take it every morning with other supplements to help keep me chill. On days when the anxiety doesn't respond to one, I'll take another and it truly does help.
I had been taking clonazapam for stress and anxiety attacks. I just went to the docs to get more because I was having serious problems. I discovered this L-Theanine and ordered it and within 24 hours of taking it I have only had to take a clonaz once in a week because I was slammed hard by life and needed the extra help. But at least now I know I am not stuck on the meds and that this product took away the stress, anxiety and other yucky stuff in life so quickly and it just works!!! I take it and a couple of hours later I notice I am ok and not needing the extra meds! Yay!!! (Except for that one bombed day that threw me for a loop and into a bad place!)
It has a nice, calming effect on my chronic anxiety issues. Would definitely recommend it to a friend, as a matter of fact, I have recommended it to several.
I have a foster dog who suffers from extreme separation anxiety. In one day, she destroyed a wire crate, orthopedic gel bed, an 1-3/4-inch solid core door, and started in on my built-in bookshelves (all in less than two hours). I reached out to my dog rescue groups for advice and several suggested L-theanine, since it's a component of the more expensive Composure treats.
Helps with stress and anxiety management. I've been using this supplement for over a month now with great results!
I've struggled with anxiety for more than two decades, doctors are so quick to prescribe Xanax but I refuse to take it. A friend recommended L-Theanine so I decided to try it. I take one everyday, sometimes two if it's a super stressful day. I have a full time job and I'm in college, I take one before class or an exam to help with focus. I've tried many brands but prefer this brand. I highly recommend it for anxiety, especially this brand.
I tried another brand of Sunetheanine and it did absolutely nothing. I was going to give up on it but decided to give it one more shot and ordered these. These are good quality and I feel like taking two of these at night takes the edge off my anxiety. It's definitely not as effective as standard medication but it's pretty good. I'll buy it again.
This stuff works! I have very high anxiety issues and I have been fighting this problem for about 3 years. I have tried prescription anxiety meds and they were the worst! This is the first supplement that actually chills me out without shutting me down or making me feel crazy. I recommend going easy on the first dose by alternating days on and off and starting on a weekend with a blanket and a pillow. It just makes you so calm you want to just relax and not get much done. I sleep like a rock with this also. The nerves buzzing all over has gone down significantly as well. This feels like it is the opposite of caffeine. I tried another brand but did not feel the effects like this brand. I wish this came in 100 mg doses. I think the 200 mg is too much for me but man does it work.
The two times that I have taken this product, I have noticed a difference in my anxiety. I get anxiety after I drink coffee or after drinking any other kind of caffeinated beverage and I did not have that after taking this with coffee. Usually my heart races and I feel really jittery, but that was not the case. Wonderful quality as well.
L-Theanine has been shown to support mood and lessen anxiety. A key ingredient to get the most out of L-Theanine is that it's combined with Suntheanine which this product has.
This is a must have and pairs well with strong coffee. Also, for the people taking a prescribed stimulant, this an excellent supplement to pair it with. It removes the jittery movements and the anxiousness that accompanies stimulant-alone-type of feeling and gives you a more relaxed and focused feeling. Initially i was using propranolol to control the jitters and anxiety i was feeling with stimulants, not anymore. This is a more “natural” solution for that and feels wayyyy better. Give it a try!
First time purchaser here, initially as always, I was weary about buying a new(to me) product that random reviews were indicating anxiety relief. Perhaps I was a bit anxious? Ba dum tsss. Sorry about that.
Smoothens out anxiety. Definitely able to tell when it takes effect.
I definitely notice a difference when i take the L theanine. I feel more relaxed, and less anxiety.
Completely stopped using the anti-anxiety prescription I was taking...LOVE IT!....no "drug" feeling..just NOT anxiety :) Is that's that what we should feel like?
This is my 3rd bottle I purchased and I wouldn’t be without it. It helps as a stay at home mom with my day to day stresses and it gets me through the day. My doctor is actually the one to tell to to try is along with 1 other product and why I Love is that it’s all natural. Definitely worth it for anyone expiercing anxiety stress and feeling overwhelmed.
Well, I chose this for my anxiety & insomnia because I know this brand can be trusted,(I used to work with GNC so I'm very particular with the products I intake, and the ones I suggest others try).
I am getting ready to purchase a second bottle and thought I would write a review. My wife suffers from generalized anxiety disorder which started one day out of nowhere and was having trouble finding ways to cope through it. She was placed on all types of psychotropic medications and all they did was turn her into a numb zombie and caused horrible side effects. It got to the point where she had to quit her job, was scared to drive or grocery shop and even to stay alone with our children. She would call for emergency assistance at least once a week because her heart rate would go up to almost 200 beats per minute, she'd get dizzy and her chest would hurt really badly when having an attack. It was horrible and causing a ton of stress on her heart. After doing some research, we came across an article about natural solutions to cure anxiety. L-Theanine was on the list. I purchased this brand because of the good reviews in June and she would take 2-3 a day. It helped a lot but she still had trouble with staying out of sudden fight or flight mode. Two weeks later, she added chelated magnesium 133mg, 5-HTP 100mg, vitamin D-3 w/coconut oil 5,000iu, and lithium orotate 5mg. Along with practicing relaxation techniques, she takes one of each pill in the morning and its been like a miracle. She is back to her old self again and more focused and energetic. She has been off all her psychotropic medications and has not had a unmanageable attack in over a month. No more racing heart, dizziness, and countless er and doctor visits. Later, we also found out that she had an severely infected root canal that she did not even feel and that may have been the culprit as she's always been a very laidback person all her life so her sudden change just did not make sense to either of us. Infections causes your body to become under a lot of stress so take care of yourselves and don't just take an anxiety diagnosis with a grain of salt. Once it starts, it is a beast to contend with but there's always a root cause. Work on the figuring out the root causes and if you can, leave the psychotropic medications alone because they only cover up the real issue(s).
This L-Theanine supplement was purchased to give to my brother who has a history of depression and anxiety. He has been resistant to try medication due to the side effects they can cause. He did try an anti-depressant for a short time but did not like how it made him feel like a zombie. He has difficulty sleeping at night as well due to thoughts and worries constantly running through his head. He has been taking this supplement for about 10 days now and notices a difference in his anxiety level. He feels more calm and relaxed. This supplement was recommended by an accupuncture specialist he is also seeing for the depression and anxiety. I hope this continues to help him as depression and anxiety can be very difficult to get under control and keep under control.
I've used many brands of L-theanine over the past few years, and I've found the one I will stick with. An excellent way to melt away anxiety, and these work pretty quickly (20-40 mins). Even the packaging is nice, and came with a nice thank you card. I look forward to trying their other products. Really, look no further, you will not be disappointed.
After several brands, I've decided that this brand gel cap will be my go-to for L-theanine. So many products try to get away with inferior ingredients to cut costs, but Sports Research seems to be in tune with what the market wants: non-GMO, and NO SOY! I have issues with high cortisol and anxiety in the evenings, so I usually take my dose of this and phosphatidylserine around dinner time. The phosphatidylserine works to blunt the effects of high cortisol (anxiety) and the L-theanine is sort of an enhancement to lowering my anxiety. I sometimes take an additional dose of L-theanine in the morning if I have a stressful day ahead. I like that it relaxes me without drowsiness or a drop in mental clarity. I'm a nurse, so I have to be on-game, mentally alert and make quick decisions. This works for me!
I use l-theanine in combination with caffeine to improve concentration. I've found that l-theanine on its own helps me manage stress and anxiety. I take 200mg twice a day with no bad side effects.
This product is very effective and beneficial to my everyday life. It relieves stress and anxiety and raises cognitive focus to allow me to be more productive throughout the day. It also relieves insomnia and helps me sleep at night by reducing stress brought on by the day so I can get a full night of restful sleep.
I started using your L-THEANINE product a few months ago and I have noticed a tremendous improvement in my anxiety levels.Thank you for all that you have done.
I was first introduced to L-Theanine by a friend to help with my stress, anxiety and insomnia. After researching the product I came across the “SportsResearch” brand on Amazon and thought I’d give it a try based on the positive reviews. I’m so glad I did, I have found it to work better than I ever expected. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a safe and effective solution to stress anxiety and insomnia!
Just received them! Took my first one and I love them already!
L-Theanine actually help fight anxiety on some level in the brain. I take a dose with caffeine in the morning and it’s night and day difference for me. Between ADD & Anxiety it’s the perfect formula for them both.
I've had a really positive experience with L-theanine in general, but this brand truly makes the difference. Easy to take gel capsule, easy on the stomach, and truly takes the edge off. Wonderful for daily anxiety, night time relaxation, and nondrowsy focus. 10/10 would recommend.
I tried taking this for approx 30 days. There is a distinct feeling of calm when I take this. It has eased my anxiety and allowed me to move forward in many areas of my life. I haven't tried any other form of this supplement so I can't compare it to anything else. Someone recommended this to me for anxiety. It has made such a difference that I have ordered a second bottle.
I was taking 5mg Valium, as needed, for anxiety. Worried about taking the Valium on a regular basis I poked around the internet and found a drink called Neuro Bliss. It does actually help relax you but it is expensive at about $2.50 per bottle. I saw that the active ingredient was L-theanine and wondered if it would be cheaper to just buy that. I found this brand on Amazon and decided to give it a try. It is way cheaper than Neuro (which tastes great by the way) and keeps me from taking Valium most days. I could not be happier, pun intended.
Being in grad school can be really chaotic and stressful academically. I started to feel like I was lacking focus and motivation, as well as having a difficult time dealing with my anxiety. I noticed the effects of the L-theanine more when I initially started using it and less when I was closer to running out. I'm not sure if there was any reason for that in particular, but 4 stars because it definitely did what I needed it to.
I am in love with this product. I have high anxiety and just thinking about anxiety gives me anxiety. Mine includes tight spaces, certain colors on walls, and the fear of my head being covered or locked down, I can't even let my boyfriend put his arm around me in bed unless it is just at my waist and even then not a full hug, I also sleep opposite from him as in I'm down by his feet with my head facing the open door. Crazy right?!?! I use to spend hours just thinking about all this stuff and not be able to sleep. I also have Crohn's disease and my stomach gurgles keep me up. I can't honestly say I see like an angel and wake up happy instead of feeling drunk from the things I previously took. My boyfriend can tell the difference too!!!! So excited to try the primrose next!
I've been taking it every morning daily. It's changed my life completely. It has helped me get to sleep faster and quality has improved. It has also helped decrease the anxiety and elevated my mood as well.
I primarily use this product later in the evening to help unwind after a long, stressful day and I've found it really helps relax me and get a more restful sleep. In addition to that I will sometimes take this product earlier in the day while I'm at the office as well. Being ADHD I take the prescription drug adderall and the L-theanine seems to synergize well with it by taking the edge off and removing the anxiety/jitters that sometimes accompany the medication. This makes it much easier to remain alert and zone-in on my work while still remaining calm.
I have found that L-Theanine is a great treatment for minor anxiety. It's also great to help you relax. I like the coconut oil in this product, and the pill is very easy to swallow.
This stuff really works. I've been taking clonazepan for anxiety and I was beyond skeptical that the Theanine would help. I've been using this product for a few months now and it really does an amazing job taking the edge off. It's one of those things were you take the pill when you are feeling a bit anxious and it totally mellows you out without the doping and sleepy aspects of Clonazepan. It is also safe to take with alcohol which is a plus if you are in a social setting and need to take the edge off and can't take a prescription medicine to to the interaction.
This supplement is great! I suffer from anxiety and I have tried many other supplements and have been on many different prescription medications, nothing seemed to work for me and if it did it made me feel like a zombie. I came across this and decided to give it a shot and was shocked that it actually helped calm me down and help eliminate most of my anxiety. I’m not saying this is a magic pill because it is not but I have found that I am able to actually function when I take these. I can actually leave the house and get stuff done, which I have not been able to do for a long time. I also started exercising and eating a little better too, so obviously that helps too. I take one pill in the morning and one in the evening and found that’s what works best for me. If you are looking for something to help with anxiety and/or your mood I would recommend that you try this product, it has worked for me and I have tried everything.
Purchased this for my son who has anxiety and it has worked wonderful.
I'm a stressed out working mother of two and I can not describe how much better I have felt since starting this supplement! Amazing is all I can say! I recommend it to anyone l know struggling with stress and anxiety!
I’ve been using this product for anxiety for a little of 45 Days. It has worked wonders. I’ve never been more stress free in my life. Before I couldn’t breathe and had such high anxiety. Now I’m anxiety free and can think more clearly.
It seems to be helping alleviate some of my stress/anxiety I've been having recently in dealing with a job change. I was extremely anxious about the job change to the point I couldn't eat or sleep very well. So I ordered these to see if they could help me. So far it does seem to be helping me alleviate some of the stress and anxiety. I definitely feel much more calm and not worrying constantly about the job change as I was before.
I was first introduced to L-theanine by my doctor who suggested I give it a try and see if it would help with my anxiety and insomnia, so I purchased a bottle from their office. It did help a good bit as long as I took three caps a day. However, buying it from the doctor’s office was a bit pricey, so I went to the local health store and bought a cheaper well know brand, which didn’t seem to help much. Then I came across the “SportsResearch” brand on Amazon and thought I’d give it a try based on the positive reviews (usually too many positive reviews and no negative ones, in my mind, can mean only one of two things, either this stuff is as good as the reviews say it is or there’s a whole lot of fake reviews). Well…I’m glad I gave it a try. I find it works better than the brand the doctor sells. Taking one cap in the morning and one in the evening keeps me feeling relaxed and more focused during the day and I sleep much better at night. Also, love the easy to swallow gel caps.
I was in a car accident and have been recovering from a traumatic brain injury. I was diagnosed with PTSD and post concussive syndrome. Part of this has been frustration, irritability and anxiety. I have never had issues with anxiety or mood before. I started taking this supplement to help mostly with the anxiety. At first I didn't notice any affects or feel immediate "relief". But now after taking for a few weeks, if I skip taking this for a few days, I can definitely tell the difference.
Love this product! It has really help me out with my anxiety. Would highly recommend.
Good stuff. Helps my anxiety.
Great stuff! I can honestly say it very much helps my mood & anxiety. I take one on the AM & one just before bed. I seem to sleep better as well. Recommend
I have been taking this product for around 1 month now, I wasn't sure how it would benefit me but my anxiety has been enough that it has interfered with my daily life. After taking these for a few weeks my friends and family were noticing that I was calmer and less worried or paranoid. Will definitely continue purchasing and taking the supplements.
I've experimented with a lot of supplements and this one seems to have some benefit on anxiety. Subtle but noticeable. I did notice taking 400mg seems to make this less subtle.
I am in the process of switching all my products to SR. I find that the products are more concentrated and not like other watered down products or have a delays in being effective. I have been using the other products and decided to give these a try to get a handle on my anxiety issues that I developed from being in the military. I have used another brand and found that it made me a little more relaxed, but now I will see how the SR product helps me.
Our daughter suffers with anxiety and anger outbursts. We have spent thousands of dollars on supplements. This is the only vitamin that we have purchased that has worked almost immediately. Our therapist recommended it. It has changed our lives and brought peace to our home. I just bought 5 bottles. Can’t thank this company enough. Signed happy mom and daughter.
THIS STUFF WORKS AND KEEPS ME SO CALM.
This product has worked awesome for me! I suffer from anxiety and I was getting upset/having crying spells daily when there wasn't necessarily a specific problem. I was so frustrated that I constantly had anxiety and I wanted to try and find something natural before trying out prescription meds. I was so desperate for something to help my anxiety and this is what I needed! I have barely had anxiety since taking these. I would say maybe once a week a still have a hard time but otherwise, I'm totally fine!
I take this morning and night for anxiety. It is the only brand that has worked for me, after trying several different L-theanine brands (it's the combination of being SunTheanine, and the way the capsule is made).
After searching for a natural way to reduce my anxiety, I discovered L-Theanine. I don't take it everyday, just on the days that I know will be anxiety-inducing or overwhelming. Overall I feel more calm, less physically uncomfortable, and more at ease. If you plan on taking 2 (400 mg), then absolutely drink it with a cup of coffee or caffeinated tea. I find that the effects are even stronger with caffeine; you feel more focused and "zen" without racing thoughts; I am less easily distracted from the task at hand. It is NOT like xanax if that is what you are thinking, it is far less groggy and spacey, just mostly a mellow effect. Would be great for sleep if you get anxiety before going to bed. Definitely worth a try if you are looking for all natural ways of reducing your anxiety!
I had previously tried other brands of L-Theanine, and this is the very first time I tried Suntheanine, specifically from this Sports Research. My previous experience with L-Theanine was pretty good. I had taken it with caffeine in the form of coffee (starting with 200mg of theanine, 100mg of caffeine) and enjoyed it a lot. I felt very calm with energy from caffeine, which is a very good way of being able to do your daily tasks without feeling physically lethargic or mentally clouded with stress or anxiety. Normally, without theanine, caffeine makes me slightly jittery (especially if I get more than 150mg of caffeine) and while I don't feel physically lethargic, I still am distracted by how jittery I get.
I'm a fifty year old pharmacist who will always remain skeptical of any nutritional supplement making bold, 'life-changing', or disease modifying claims or statements . I like to place my faith in conventional medicine, and prefer to see evidence of successful scientific studies before I feel comfortable recommending any product to a patient, friend, or family member. I purchased this Suntheanine Supplement on Amazon as an experiment a few weeks ago, and chose it mainly because of the overwhelming tide of other positive reviews. Over the past few months, I have been seeking a safe and 'natural' nutritional supplement to help me with some anger management and 'irritability' issues I sometimes have in my workplace environment. Patience with difficult people has never been one of my strengths, and my daily irritability is made all the worse by my caffeine consumption. To make a lengthy story shorter, I take a 200mg Suntheanine capsule one hour before work and--astonishingly--I am alert, focused, and relaxed throughout the course of my eight hour work day! I was stunned and pleasantly surprised that I had finally found a supplement that did exactly what it claimed---and more. I was elated and recommended the product to a fellow 'highly strung' colleague of mine who, after using Suntheanine for several days, informed me the product made him feel 'happy' and relaxed for the first time in a long time. It was important for me to have another health care professional confirm what I suspected and have the same-- or at least a similar--positive response to the same product. I had to rule out the role 'positive thinking' played in this experiment of mine. I have restricted my caffeine consumption a bit, but the oddest sensation I've noticed is that even after consuming copious amounts of coffee or caffeinated soda, I am still calm, alert, focused, and relaxed. I have read that theanine stimulates the production of nitric oxide in endothelial cells. This would cause blood vessels--particularly those in the heart--to dilate or relax. This action is important because many coffee, tea, and soda drinkers have related that theanine seems to work WITH caffeine to help promote concentration on mental tasks, inducing a state of alert calmness WITHOUT the unpleasant effects of caffeine overstimulation like; anxiety, irritability, repetitive behaviors,etc. Alpha brain wave activity increases and Beta brain wave activity decreases, but this is probably more than any of us needs to know about this supplements in vivo activity. Theanine is also purportedly effective in preventing certain forms of cancer, and may have some application in the future vs Alzheimer's disease. More studies need to be performed, but this is a supplement that obviously has multiple health benefits. It is for these and so many other reasons that I highly recommend this supplement for those seeking a unique product capable of inducing mental clarity and relaxation without inducing drowsiness. I am the same person I always was before Suntheanine, but these days I find that I am much more relaxed throughout the course of my hectic days at work. 5 stars for this life-changing supplement!
I suffer with chronic anxiety and have been on a prescription for years, which I just discovered an allergic reaction to. I stopped taking the prescription, but was still suffering with anxiety and OCD. After reading the phenomenal reviews, I decided to give this a try. I am so glad that I did. It works great! I take one in the morning with a full glass of water, with my morning coffee shortly after and I feel more relaxed, focused, and able to manage the days activities. I would recommend this to anyone with anxiety or OCD issues. I will be ordering more. Thank you sports research.
I've been using this product for about a month now, mostly for anxiety and stress. I have noticed a positive impact from using this product, it's not a miracle fix, but it does help control and relax the body. I would recommend it for anybody and if I had to complain it would be the size of the pill. That is the only aspect. It doesn't have a weird smell or taste like some supplements and I have not noticed any side effects.
I have been taking L-Theanine from another manufacture where I get the powder and make my own capsules. Since I purchased your Suntheanine I have noticed a difference from both products. I take two of your capsules each day one in morning and one in the evening. I have noticed better sleep patterns at night and an overall better feeling of wellness during the day. My anxiety I get at work has diminished or is not that big of a deal anymore since I started taking your capsules. I would recommend these to anyone that wants better sleep and an overall feeling of wellness.
It is amazing. Everytime I feel Loren or overwhelmed I would take this and feel much better and relaxed . I am able to do things more calmly and relaxed without stress and anxiety.
Amazing how it worked instantly on anxiety and focus. HIGHLY recommend it
Excellent product. It helps me sleep through the night. I have high anxiety and this helps calm me. I have used it for months now and will continue to purchase this product.
I use these every morning after my cup of coffee and it cuts the jitters and anxiety that drinking an entire French Press can induce. Also great before workouts, seems to enhance focus and cut the pre-race jitters and help get in the zone.
I took this product this morning to ward off any anxiety. I felt great for the first hour (calm and not anxious), and then now, 5 hours later, I am fighting to stay awake! This pill has made me very, very drowsy over the last 4 hours, and I cannot focus as well either. Not sure why it has this impact on my system, but will choose to take it at night instead. Definitely not good to take if I want to be productive at work!! Otherwise, very effective as a relaxing sleep aid, as it definitely brought on drowsiness.
L-theanine works amazing for my anxiety. It works especially well when paired with coffee or another form of caffeine.
I take 400 mg with 2 cups of Coffee, each morning. I find that it negates any negative side effects I'd typically get from the Coffee. I deal with (diagnosed) anxiety disorders, and find that L-Theanine has a fairly profound ability to keep my anxiety levels down thru otherwise tense situations.
I bought Suntheanine® L-Theanine 200mg (Double-Strength) in Cold-Pressed Organic Coconut Oil and since taking it (60 days) i feel much more relaxed, focused and don't have as much anxiety as before. Sports Research products are always great.
Completely glad I took a chance on this product! If you suffer with the daily chains of anxiety.... give this a shot.
Was skeptical, but this actually makes a noticeable difference in terms of stress and anxiety. took a few days to notice but overall it works well. would buy again.
I have been taking this everyday for about three weeks now. I decided to try this because I was considering going to my doctor for medication to help with anxiety and depression. I noticed a difference the first day of taking it! I feel calmer, less irritated by things than I used to be, and less stressed. I missed one day and by the end of the day, I could tell that I hadn't taken it by how miserable I felt. I don't know if this would help someone with severe depression or anxiety, but it is definitely worth a try if you suffer from mild-moderate depression/anxiety. I haven't had any side effects and plan to keep taking this supplement because of how much it is helping me.
This is so wonderful for my anxiety. A lot of people call this "natures Xanax" I don't take any prescription medication for my anxiety anymore. I know if I'm feeling panicky I can take one of these and I'll be great! It's certainly not for severe anxiety, but it absolutely takes the edge off. I am also really sensitive to caffeine and if I've had too much coffee I take one of these so I don't get the jitters.
I like this stuff a lot. I take it in the mornings with a 200mg caffeine pill, and it makes me feel more awake and more productive. It seems to allow the caffeine to increase the speed and fluidity of my thoughts, without the side effects of jitters, anxiety, etc.
I've been taking these at work when a bit stressed. I do have an anti-anxiety prescription that I take as needed, and find that I take them less when I use these. I also take one at night if I'm not quite ready for bed when I should be and it usually helps calm me get ready to go to sleep on time.
I just started taking this product a few days ago, mainly to help reduce stress and anxiety. I had to go the "natural route" in dealing with anxiety because I am an air traffic controller with the FAA. Naturally a stressful job, I started having a harder time dealing with the anxiety of the job, the training, then an hour drive each way in traffic. I was unhappy, to the point where I needed to see a counselor.
Bought for husband re:sleeplessness/anxiety. They seem to be helping him. Will continue to buy.
Fast shipping and good for anxiety/stress reduction. I also like the fact that there's no magnesium stearate in their products.
I did notice a slight difference in my mood. I felt more at ease during the day and able to focus.
I have had anxiety for years and this is the first thing I have taken that doesn't make me feel "off." I am very happy with this product.
This is one of my favorite products on Amazon. It is great for people who struggle with anxiety (particularly creatives). Just one a day, no side effects, and a clear mind ready to tackle any project. It is all-natural and I don't have to feel guilty taking it. It works particularly well with a morning cup of coffee where it gives you a great jump-start on your day. Highly recommended!
I ordered this back in April and took it for a couple months. It really helped with my anxiety. I take one in the morning with my coffee and one during the day if I get stressed out or anxious. After I ran out, I tried another brand at my local vitamin shop and this is hands down better than that brand. I’m not sure why I waited so long for to have my wife order me some more of this brand. I will only be using this brand moving forward.
I have used this faithfully. It took awhile but now I can feel that my anxiety has lessened and I am functioning more efficiently.
L-theanine is one of my go to supplements for stress and anxiety. Sports research uses good sourcing and coconut oil for high absorbtion and I’m loving it!
I have been taking Theanine in a compound for a long time to help with anxiety and sleep but I did not like that there was mag stearate in the supplement I was taking. I tried the Sports Research Theanine in coconut oil. It helps with anxiety due to thyroid issues and also helps me to sleep better. Thanks!
Really great stuff, truly helped me when I wasn't able to be on my meds. The coconut oil helps your body metabolize more of the supplement (any type of supplement like this too) so I feel this product was just wonderfully produced and well thought out. It truly helped with my mood/anxiety.
What relief this product has given me. I’ve always had anxiety since I was young and after just days of taking this I could definitely tell a difference. I felt calmer, more focused on tasks at hand (my anxiety would usually make me feel scattered and not organized), and most importantly I felt generally happier. I’m so happy I found this product and LOVE that it is a natural supplement and don’t have to take prescription drugs like lexapro for my anxiety anymore. This is my 2nd time buying and my boyfriend loves it too!!!
This is the highest quality l-theanine I have ever bought. The gel caps also make it incredibly easy to take. This stuff knocks down my anxiety unlike anything else.
I recommend this to all my patients with anxiety, great product
I have using in off and on for the past 30 days. I take this product as needed for quieting any anxiety and sharpening my mind during exams or speaking engagements. So far it has worked very well, takes the edge off but does not dull my thinking. I would recommend this product for that effect alone.
I bought this supplement to help with caffeine withdrawals. Apparently in some people, those who have become very dependent on it (been a consistent heavy drinker since I was 12, im now 20) withdrawing can cause anxiety. Ive had two panic attacks since I quit a month ago and have never had anxiety problems before in my life. After reading countless personal stories on varies blogs and forums I came across this amino acid and read about its ability to help heal and protect the nervous system as well as take the edge off stress. When I received it, I took a capsule then took a nap and woke up super focused and alert WITHOUT THE EDGE. I had been quite high strung before, in fight or flight response almost all day making me alert to the point any little noise would send my heart racing as if I had suffered through the Vietnam war. This stuff works! Give it a try!
I have suffered severe anxiety for a while now. I don't know why but it made me tired, unmotivated, sickly, and I would even faint. I decided I needed something to calm me because nothing worked. Prescriptions were too rough and I couldn't sleep all day. I saw this online and gave it a shot. I've been taking it every day for 2 weeks now and I haven't felt anxious or tired at all. THANK YOU SUNTHEANINE...!!!!
I take it in the mornings first thing and i sleep better and have more energy throughout the day! This has been extremely helpful especially since i have gotten off of my anxiety and depression medications
So far, this is working for me. I can really tell the difference in my stress and anxiety level, although I usually take two per day instead of one.
I take this product in the morning before work, and I can tell a big difference in my mental acuity. A great product for keeping anxiety under wraps and improving energy levels.
I use it 1-2x per day during periods of high stress and anxiety and this promotes more calm and focus so I can stay productive throughout my day. If I take it in the mornings, I have it with a cup of coffee, which seems to maximize its effects.
I felt like my heart was beating too fast as I tried to sleep and I felt anxious. Just one dose of l-theanine and I felt super relaxed and slept much better
I suffer from anxiety and when it got worse I decided to try L-Theanine. I noticed a big difference very quickly and have stayed on it for about a month so far. It has lowered my level of anxiety and I even sleep better. Have not had adverse effects from this product. I have reordered and plan to stay on it I definitely!
At 42, during a time of dealing with a serious family medical issue, I started developing the first signs of anxiety. After the issue was resolved the anxiety was hanging around. It was slight, but bothersome so I looked into natural ways of dealing with it. Started this product and with in weeks all anxiety issues were gone.
I have random high level of anxiety , irritability and stress , where heart races,irrational mind wandering bringing worry, instant emotion kind of feeling (anger,worry,). I took this and within 2 hours my heart race, mind wandering, irritability is gone. I am calm, at ease and love the restart to my day it has given me. I don't take daily..only once at sign of irritation-stress-anxiety. Thank You.
While having trouble with combinations of worsening anxiety and OCD as well as post-partum depression, a good friend recommended this supplement to me as a more immediate solution for panic/anxiety/depression as opposed to St. John's Wort which takes time to be incorporated into your system.
Very impressed with this. I've had a lot on my plate lately and a ton of stress and started having small anxiety attacks throughout the day. They seem to increase over a two-month time. To the point where I actually ask my doctor for a prescription for anxiety drugs. She is actually the one who suggested this and said she takes it herself. I left the doctor's office ran straight to the store and bought the only brand I could find there. It worked almost within 30 minutes calmed me down and just like on the Claritin commercial I feel like the fog has literally been lifted from my vision. I found I was having to take about for a day and order to remain calm and not have any attacks. I saw this product on Amazon and all the amazing reviews plus the fact that it was in coconut oil which tends to make it last in your system longer. I am now down to 1 in the morning with this brand and feel amazing. In addition my husband has ADHD and he has been taking one every morning and has been very level-headed. Prior to this he would have sudden outburst of anger for about 10 seconds and mood swings period after only 3 days of taking one after breakfast he is the sweetest guy
Decent product not perfect though for someone with higher anxiety but deffinetly helps
This product is the best relaxer and anxiety reducer I have ever taken.
This brand of L-Theanine has been incredible!! It has helped improve my mood entirely! (Ask my husband). I suffer with depression and anxiety and This is definitely a life changing product and I highly recommend!
Seems to be working so far for anxiety
Love these for helping with my anxiety.
I've been taking it every day and it keeps anxiety in check like nothing else, allowing me to push myself and grow more than I thought possible.
Has helped with my anxiety so much!!! I use it nightly as a daily supplement now!
I’ve been taking this for several months. This is my third bottle. It helps with my response to stress. I feel less anxiety.
I have had anxiety on and off for years and have been investigating natural options to help alleviate symptoms. A friend of mine suggested gaba but as I researched more deeply I found that this supplement actually has studies that support the claims to reduce anxiety symptoms.
I was taking a liquid version of L Theanine, and it worked OK, but gave me stomach issues.... too many ingredients, such as stevia which really makes me sick....
Suntheanine L-Theanine by SR mixed in with my caffeine supplement has provided me with the utmost alertness to go throughout my day with to ensure maximum efficiency and focus. All of the bad side-effects of Caffeine use (jitters, crash, and overall anxiety) are effectively eliminated & allows me to perform at my peak.
I have dysautonomia, a neurological condition that, among other things, causes anxiety. I also have PTSD, which brings its own anxiety. So, I am doubly cursed. Regular medications were not really helping, so my integrative medicine specialist (who is also double board certified in endocrinology), asked me to start taking L-theanine (I just call it theanine). She prescribed the brand Thorne Research. Well, my life changed for the better because the theanine shut off my anxiety (I take 200 mg three times a day). My friends and family and doctors were surprised at how effective theanine is for me. I LOVE the stuff. However, Thorne Research is very, very expensive if you are taking 90 pills a month. So, I started searching for a more economical brand. After trying five others—none of which were as effective as Thorne Research's—I tried Sports Research. It has nearly the same effectiveness and is a close enough option that I have made the switch. The one thing that I dislike about this is that the pills are so large and are difficult for me to swallow at times. I also wish they had a 90-pill bottle to purchase. However, I am grateful it is offered via Subscribe and Save. After my two-bottle trial period, I have set up a regular order via Subscribe and Save. Theanine, if a good quality and actual dose version, such as Sports Research offers is a POWERFUL TOOL IN FIGHTING ANXIETY. I also love that it is not addictive, such as medications like Xanax, and it has no side effects.
Switched from NOW to this due to the double strength and this being Suntheanine. Definitely recommended if you have anxiety issues.
My wife and I take it in the morning before we drink coffee to improve our mental clarity while reducing the anxiety and negative side effects associated with coffee.
Within a few days after taking this with my morning coffee I noticed some positive results. I frequently get moderate anxiety from stimulates such as coffee.This product made me feel less anxious and focused through out the day, doing exactly what I bought it out for. I am looking forward to ordering more in the future!
I have taken this for a week now and I can already feel a difference. The best way I can describe it is a clarity. I normally am mildly anxious throughout my day and I have ADHD. I don't mean to say it is a cure for either but it helps me overcome them in ways I have not been able to before. Ability to focus and go out in public with a less anxious feeling. I would recommend giving this a try. Dosage definitely seems to be the hard question here. Some are good with 200mg a day and I have read of others taking 500+mg more than once a day. I take 1 200mg capsule in the morning about 30 minutes before breakfast with a cup of coffee. Then another 30 minutes before I eat lunch. That seems to be my ideal dosage. I might try upping it just to see if there is a difference.
I brought this for stress and anxiety from work. I feel a calm since taking this and less easily to react to stressful situations. I will purchase more! Thank you!
I take this every morning. I feel it has helped with my anxiety.
This really helps with my anxiety! I take one in the morning when I am really stressed to help with my pounding heart and nerves. It also helps with fatigue and gives me energy. Plus I also got a free bottle from the company in addition to ordering the one on Amazon.
I have a history of anxiety and panic attacks. I heard that theanine can help realize anxiety naturally, so thought I would give this a try. I've noticed a big difference...I'm much calmer and relaxed..will definitely buy again!
Anxiety all my life. Even when I was very young knew their was something wrong with me but didn't know what.
Unfortunately, I deal with PTSD symptoms pretty much daily and pharmeceutical drugs haven't been able to help me (unless there's strings attached). Theanine, in general, helps with my anxiety, but your Suntheanine (in virgin coconut oil) is the best L-theanine product I've ever used. I can count on it to allow me to function, and I feel like I'm taking good care of myself with it because of the high quality ingredients.
I bought the l Theanine 200 mg a couple weeks ago and am very happy with it. It helped with anxiety and stress very much and I felt the effects very fast. I take it once a day in the morning and I feel it helps through the whole day. Great product!
This is the second bottle I have purchased in the past few months, and I am satisfied with the effects for relaxation and focus. I also noticed positive benefits to my skin as well after taking this daily for a month or two, most likely since I am prone to breakouts when I'm dealing with lots of anxiety.
Reduces my anxiety & stress levels noticeably. On a scale of 1-10, reliably reduces by 2 points.
It does promote a relaxed feeling and reduces anxiety.
Starting taking a week ago and I've had really bad anxiety for awhile now. I would always get anxiety in certain settings like running errands or going to work and I take two in the morning and I've found myself relaxed and not worrying about things. I highly recommend this product, nothing else has worked for me but this has truly been a life saver.
Exactly what I was looking for. I've taken xanax for years for anxiety and I was looking for a non prescription alternative that might be a little more natural.
I take this product for anxiety and to calm my nerves but keep myself focused. I really could feel the difference with this product and formulation compared to other ones that I have tried. Just reordered my second bottle!
I got this as I was intrigued when I read L-Theanine is supposed to help with anxiety whether it be related to talking to women, social anxiety, or most basically anything else you can think of. I do have a bit of social anxiety especially with strangers in nonprofessional settings. Although that sounded well and good, the main reason i tried Theanine is that I read some anecdotal reports of it helping improve sleep quality. It seems to help with anxiety as I have absolutely none when I take it but its really weird that I can't tell I've taken it other than that. L-Theanine is purported to be the chemical naturally found in tea that promotes relaxation so I suppose this makes sense. I'm guessing it effects GABA receptors or something but who knows... could be all in my head but hey as long as I don't experience anxiety I'm fine with that, it's all subjective! This wasn't the first product with L-Theanine that I tried. I tried other similar products that contained 100mgs of Theanine but no promise as to the L-Theanine content. Based off of my basic chem knowledge im guessing they contained about 50 percent L-Theanine so I was likely getting 50mgs of it per dose. With this product it does seem to work better than what I tried previously although those worked as well. I've not had any other experience with this company but so far so good so I will buy from them again. If you buy this stuff off of amazon they do include a little card with a url to get this or another one of their products free(which is why I'm doing this review honestly but if it wasn't working I wouldn't go through the trouble to get more. They didn't tell me what to write or anything or I would have written a poor one so I'm guessing they just wanna get there company name out there more)
This has definitely helped ease my anxiety. I take it everyday religiously. Buy this product.
Wow. I rarely write reviews but I had to for this product. I've taken beta blockers before for performance anxiety related to stage or business presentations, but not anymore. Just 2 of these with bulletproof coffee has me incredibly calm and focused for hours! (Note this is MORE than the recommended amount, so do your research and talk to your doctor!) Then I take another before bed with magnesium and sleep like a baby, first time in a very long time. I was pretty skeptical of all the great reviews, but can personally attest this works. It feels like a game-changer for me.
great product, I feel so much better on this than any type of anxiety or depression medicine.
This stuff has been a lifesaver for my anxiety. It is not quite as fast-acting as other things I've tried like 5-HTP but when I take this consistently or even just as needed I notice a huge difference in my mood and overall well being. It calms me down but I still feel alert and focused unlike 5-HTP which tends to make me drowsy. I also have bipolar disorder and it helps me manage my mood swings to an extent, both depressive and manic, which is quite a feat as most things I've found only work for one or the other. I also feel that the coconut oil in this brand helps with absorption. Hope this is helpful!
I mostly use this before bed, I take one capsule 1 hour before bed to help me fall asleep easier. This product definitely works, I feel it working within 5-10 minutes. I can feel a light fuzzy feeling in my head that brushes away any anxiety that Ive been feeling. I mostly get anxious during the night before bed, not being able to sleep gives me anxiety and it creates a vicious cycle. However this product has worked great for those random anxiety feelings. I sleep through the night as well. I do not know how it works in other settings but for me it's great for relaxing tension and getting a good night sleep.
Suntheanine helps keep my anxiety away and to avoid anti anxiety prescriptions. I like this brand better than the L theanine I was previously taking.
I use this for my anxiety. It helps me when I need to perform in front of church.
My doctor suggested using l-theanine for stress and anxiety relief. I chose Sports Research after researching many brands. I am very satisfied with the product and have since switched to Sports Research for my MCT oil and vitamin D3.
This supplement has had a significant effect on my life. Before I started taking it I was often upset, even when I didn't know why. I had crying spells almost daily (again, not always for a reason that I was aware of). I was taking my as-needed anxiety drug as often as I was allowed, and I wanted to take it more. I complained to my psychiatrist that I felt like I was going to explode, and I felt like that all the time. None of that is true anymore, and it's all because of this supplement. I took two pills in the morning for a long time, and then when my stress level increased I added another pill at night. I have to buy new bottles often, but it's worth the money. I'm so much calmer. I have been recommending this supplement to everyone that I know, every time that they mention being stressed. Even if you just need it short-term to get you through a tough time, you should try it. I have not noticed any side effects from it. I still occasionally cry or need to take an anxiety pill, but it's no longer commonplace. I no longer feel desperate for help. I would never normally share things so personal with strangers (or with most people, really), but I want other people to get the help that I did. I can't believe that more people don't know about this already.
I could feel a difference in mental focus and anxiety level throughout the day. It was subtle but noticeable difference.
I have tried different kinds of suntheanine and I believe switching up the product works best. This is going to be a part of rotation. Works great and i trust this brand since i use to use sweet sweat. It helps a lot with my mild anxiety.
Use this product for anxiety . Has helped both myself and my son to focus and be less anxious. We talke at both morning and night before bed to help with rest as well.
Works well for anxiety if taken daily. However, it doesn't completely get rid of it. Just makes it a little more bearable.
So far, so good. It's been really helpful with my social anxiety. It's not a huge change, but just enough to take some of the edge off which is really all you can ask for from this kind of supplement. Will include in my regimen from here on out.
Ive try other product for stress and anxiety, but some don't work, and the one that actually work for me gave me a lot of migraines. This one in the other hand don't give me migraines and Ive felt the changes, I stop taking it like for 3 days and my anxiety came back, that is when I felt that it worked, not like other natural product that Ive try.
Having Fibromyalgia, I use various products before bedtime to bring myself into a deeper REM level of (hopefully restorative) sleep. I decided to take a break from Valerian Root for awhile, having been on it for a number of years. I've noticed since introducing Suntheanine, that it not only brings about calm plus a more peaceful, restful sleep, but that it helps during the day to bring about a more peaceful feeling if I should feel any anxiety. There is no hang-over effect in the morning. It does not cause you to lose control, or alter your senses in any way, other than providing a pleasant calm, much like one might receive after sipping a glass of wine. Although there is no buzz or lightheadedness as there might be with alcohol. If you are on the fence about trying this product, please do yourself a favor and try it. I take this along with Melatonin every night.
After taking it for about a month I noticed that I was calmer and more focused while using this product. For me, this product worked as well as the anti anxiety medication I have been prescribed to use on a "as needed" basis, without the harmful side effects. There was a death in the family in January and the day of the funeral was particularly exhausting. I took three of them in the morning with the rest of my supplements and was able to keep calm and collected through a day that seemed to go on forever.
I feel that this product alleviates anxiety and stress over small things that would normally cause me to feel uneasy. I also think that it helps me to fall asleep quickly and sleep soundly at night!
First review I have ever written. If you are like me and have read reviews like this before and have scoffed, rolled your eyes, and went on your with your daily routine... let me assure you this product does what it describes. I have suffered with anxiety and living inside my head for a long time. This product allows you to take things at face value and keep on keeping on. Sports Research is a brand you can trust when it comes to quality. Do yourself a favor and try this. I really hope you reap the same benefits myself and countless others have experienced.
I discovered L-Theanine from an article on the internet saying it was the natural xanax. As someone who suffers from anxiety i was intrigued. While i wouldn't call it a xanax, i would definitely say i feel much calmer, more even toned when i take this. i've been taking it every day for a month and the one day i didn't take it, i felt the difference without it. I also use meditation as a way to control my anxiety so i think this is a nice compliment to a practice i already had.
Bottom line, this stuff works. I have OCD and have regular anxiety. This basically eliminates all feelings of anxiety. It's been amazing!
I am shocked that this actually works. I've never been a supplement-taker, and am generally wary of things like this. I've suffered from generalized anxiety, OCD, and panic disorder for my whole life. I'm on a cocktail of antidepressants, but still had panic attacks somewhat regularly. My therapist recommended this and I figured I might as well try it--I was shocked to realize that once I started taking one pill every morning, my panic attacks ceased. I've had one in the past month, which is AMAZING for me. Unmedicated I have them multiple times per day and on medication I usually have one every week or two. Since I started taking Theanine, the difference is amazing. I still have anxiety but it doesn't reach those peaks of panic. My partner takes it too and has noticed a big difference. I'm recommending this to everyone!
Jury is still out but it seems to reduce my anxiety. I stopped taking it and the anxiety increased. Could have been coincidence so I'm going to cycle it a couple more times. Take on an empty stomach.
L-theanine has greatly reduced my anxiety without making me sleepy. I have used it for about a year.
After suffering from numerous symptoms from anxiety, I started to take this product once a day. I do believe this supplement works synergistically with other anxiety reducing methods such as: yoga, sleeping 8 hours per night and practicing acceptance. It relieves palpitations primarily.
Better than Xanax. Keeps anxiety away.
The following review is written by my wife who has use the product
I learned of L theanine from my wellness doctor for my anxiety. I had tried anti depressants for years and they worked ok but never completely and I hated the side effects. L theanine amazingly controls the anxiety. I was hesitant at first thinking it was just a placebo effect but I've been taking for months now and it has controlled my anxiety. I am convinced!
I paired this supplement with 500mg L-Tyrosine and 200mg caffeine first thing in the morning and I have noticed a CONSIDERABLE difference in my stress, anxiety, and anger management. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Be sure to take 2 hrs before or 2 hrs after consuming protein so the supp doesn't compete with the protein to get through the brain blood barrier.
I heard about this through a friend and suffer anxiety daily! this helps with calming and focus naturally without prescription drugs!! Love it!!
My package was delivered in no time and I am extremely please with the results of the back. After my first day, not only did this product improve my sleep, but I was able to focus on work without stress or anxiety. I take a prescribed ADHD medication and will probably replace it with this product. I recommend this product to anyone looking to improve sleep, stress, and anxiety.
So, I suffer from PMDD. Where I basically am depressed for 1-2 weeks every month right before my period. Not only that but I also have huge anxiety problems, short temper, and my emotions are always more dramatic then they should be towards situations. This pill right here has changed everything for me. My anxiety IS GONE. My emotions are now leveled, I can laugh, joke around, and I always feel happy. Seriously, positive thoughts are always going through my head now. Don't expect it to numb you from life. Sorry, it's not like that. It's a natural feeling, nothing is forced. It seriously just makes it easier for you. Comparable to a weight loss pill, you have to want to work out and eat right to lose the weight. The pill just makes it easier for you to do so. This is the same thing, you have to want to a positive mind and feel happy, this pill let's you do so by boost GABA, and other natural feel goods. I get a great natural energy boost as well, and my patients is amazing now. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I personally have noticed a difference. And my family has noticed a huge difference as well. I totally recommend this. I love it. Don't pass up on this if you feel like you've got anxiety,short temper, And constant saddness. Please try this! So yes, you. Try it out and finally live life.
I was skeptical about this at first. My doctor put me on Wellbutrin for depression and wanted to put me on something for anxiety as well, but most anti-anxiety meds have weight gain as a side effect, and I have been trying to lose weight for my health. She recommended I try a suntheanine product. I read reviews and this one stood out. I'm on my second bottle and it really does help me. I take it in the morning, and sometimes one in the afternoon if I need it. It really does calm me down and help me focus on the tasks I need to, and to not dwell on the negative. It has no bad taste and I don't find the pills hard to swallow. Overall I am very happy with this supplement and I will continue to use it!
I noticed results very quickly compared to other similar products. It definitely put me in a mellow mood and improved my focus.
I bought L-theanine to help with stress and anxiety at work. I am honestly shocked at how well this supplement works. I take one pill on an empty stomach with my morning coffee. It eliminates the "negative energy" that I sometimes get if I drink too much coffee and it greatly increases my ability to focus and concentrate. I have been going on a lot of interviews lately and I notice that I am much more relaxed and my responses are more concise when I take this product. Lastly, I noticed that I wake up more refreshed and a greater desire to get out of bed right away as opposed to hitting the snooze button 5 times.
I've only been taking this for a couple of days but I notice a difference when I take it in the morning. I feel more mentally alert and awake, not jittery, just crisp. I have not noticed any difference in my mood or anxiety which is the reason I bought it, but I will continue to take it and see if I notice any change.
I have been using l-theanine for a few years now for anxiety. It calms me without any side effects. Good product!
I usually dont write product reviews but this one I definitely wanted to write a review about. I just recently purchased my second bottle of this, I suffer from mild anxiety and this has helped me tremendously. I will be the first to admit I was extremely skeptic about trying this, my husband had been reading about L-theanine and kept telling me all the benefits it would have for me. I decided about a month ago to try it out because I had nothing to lose from doing so, and I am so glad that I did!
I was very skeptical about this but it really works!!!! I haven't been paid or anything, I'm just someone who have suffered from anxiety and social anxiety my whole life.
Great product! Pairs nicely with caffeine to avoid jitters and reduce anxiety while also maintaining focus. Will definitely be buying again.
I’m so glad I found something that helps! I felt so laser focused while taking these. I work in an extremely busy BPO with high anxiety levels constantly from the work I do as a recruiter and I would like to say this helped A LOT with easing that Anxiety and actually getting focused enough to get so much done. Would highly recommend and would buy again.
The product is working anxiety in check and I'm feeling happy again thank you
I have pretty high anxiety, and I'm so happy I found this. Great for pairing with coffee to study or to be in a better mood without it feeling unnatural. Love it because it keeps me calm and helped me pass my finals without extra stress.
I've tried several different forms of L-Theanine, and this brand has had the best out put. I have issues with anxiety and sleep isues, finally after trying this formula, I've slept sound and deeply at night and my anxiety is much better than it was!
I've been experiencing some pretty intense anxiety in my life lately due to a lot of stress (layoffs at work, graduate school, family life, wrecking my car, etc). I went to the Dr. to check my options, where my Heart Rate is normally 60 BPM it has been at 100 BPM. I have had the shakes, the tight chest, breathing has been a little labored, very edgy and irritable, and I cry over EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME (I litterally cried over a dead pigeon in my parking garage at one point!).
I started taking this to help with anxiety, and it did have a noticeable effect after a couple weeks. Now that I'm on a regular anxiety medication, I still use L-Theanine as a sleep aid. Taken about 30-45 minutes before bed usually helps me fall right asleep. Great stuff and a great company!
This works great in conjunction with medications which elevate anxiety. Typically other nootropics tend to give an odd feeling in the stomach and in turn dehydrate and such. These don't do that, the quality of the pill is very high and in turn prevents the "heartburn" sensation one gets when taking supplements and require you to drink lots of water. Do take them with plenty of water though as Theanine itself will dehydrate you, however again, the quality of the theanine and pill is very high so adverse effects tend to be minimized. These are great for reducing anxiety and bringing a sort of calm storm type focus.
Since it has worked so great for me to reduce my stress and anxiety - I have since converted my husband and two close family friends to try it. They all love it and are making it part of their daily vitamin regimen.
This supplement does exactly what it is advertised to do. I am taking 2 pills per day and I am noticing a significant reduction of stress and anxiety. Taking this product also does not cause me to get drowsy and nauseous, as some other products have in the past.
I suffer from horrible anxiety attacks a couple of times a week. I have taken anxiety and anti-depressants in the past, but nothing seemed to work. I decided oh a whim to try this out after doing some research on it. It has made such a difference. It makes me focused and calm. I started taking this about a week before I started a new job, and normally starting a new job would cause me daily anxiety attacks. Instead, I was kind of excited and felt calm and prepared. I still have gotten a couple of mild anxiety attacks, but it has made a substantial difference overall and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who suffers from anxiety like mine.
I'm happy with this so far. I'm an EMT/Firefighter that had GAD crop up on me over the past few years. I've seen a lot of trauma and such so panic attacks and anxiety off duty were becoming a common thing.It had gotten so bad that I was afraid to walk into stores by myself or really interact socially with others. I'm not a fan of how the medical community deals with this sort of problem - medicate them until they can't take it anymore then stick them in a therapy group. I said no thank you to that. So I was managing it on my own and looking for alternative treatments. This so far seems to have worked well. I take it daily in the morning and I definitely notice that I'm less stressed, more relaxed, just ready to do more things. I have found anxiety attacks lessened, social interaction easier, and I feel better about life as it stands. I say give this product a go if you're in a similar situation to me. Doesn't seem to have any side effects. It's working well. I'll continue taking it as long as it works.
Great suntheanine brand. It relaxes. It works. I've been taking theanine supplements for a couple years. It doesn't work quite as well as it did, but it takes the edge off. I recommend for stress or anxiety. You can't beat this brand's price and the ingredients are minimal and natural. Get it.
For some reason, this l-theanine works better for me than other brands. Definitely helps with anxiety.
I feel that this supplement is greatly influencing my life. I feel more calmer during my work day after taking this product. It is also great to take with a cup of coffee. I feel that it lessens the effect of the caffeine by making me feel less jittery and therefore reducing anxiety.
I’ve dealt with anxiety for the past couple years. Nothing crippling, just jittery and anxious and nausea associated with it. I’ve never wanted to take Rx medication for it, as I try to take a holistic approach when possible. My husband stumbled upon L-theanine about a year ago and purchased a bottle for me. I started taking it each morning and could instantly tell a difference and my daily anxiety lessened greatly. After visiting my doctor a couple months later she was thrilled to hear I was taking L-Theanine, as she recommends it to her patients who experience general anxiety.
This is a truly amazing product. I take this with a cup of coffee, and the two work together great. While caffeine gives most of us an energetic buzz, it can give me jitters and a bit of anxiety. If I take the theanine with it, the jitters don't happen, and I become more alert, in a more productive way. I also feel generally at ease and confident. I highly recommend this, because it's a supplement that can really make a difference. I use it when I know I'm going to have a long day at work, and the effects seem to last all day from one pill!
Good quality product. I love that it is mixed with oils to make it more bioavailable. Definitely helps with my anxiety. Thanks sports research!
amazing product for general anxiety especially if you need to be productive.
I’ve been using this product for the past 17 days and I have definitely noticed a difference in my anxiety level while taking it. I take just one capsule about an hour before a stressful meeting or when I notice my stress level rising. This is much safer than using prescription anti-anxiety pills that have horrible side effects and could cause dependency issues.
I didnt hold out hope after trying so many supplements. But I was pleasantly suprised with this product. Amazing how it worked instantly on anxiety and focus. Felt able to tackle my iob and everyday task without being overwhelmed. And noticed the clarity of mind within an hour. Didnt feel the agitated fight or flight feeling. Better than any perscribe med. Because it cleared the fogginess amd not increased it. I have already recommended this to some friends.. it didnt make me tired so it was not a choice for sleep issues but it does leave me with a calmer state to help with insomnia.
This is my first time trying this product, and I ordered this specific product from this specific manufacturer at the recommendation of a good friend of mine who suffers from occasional bouts of anxiety. He claimed that this specific product helped ease the anxiety attacks. I don't have issues with anxiety so much as sleeping / relaxation issues, and after two weeks of regular use, I can confidently say that they work - perhaps not quite as well as some other reviewers claimed, but I can feel a marked difference. Based upon my current experience so far, as well as my experience with other products by Sports Research (I also take the Coconut Oil and Red Palm Oil Supplements made by SRC), I will probably purchase this product again. Will update if anything changes.
Very potent stress and anxiety relief compared to other brands I've tried.
I have been using L-Theanine for more than three months. It produces a sense of well being and calmness. I am able to focus on day-to-day tasks without feeling anxiety or stress. Appreciate that this product does not contain fillers or stearates. The price is very reasonable for the quality of the ingredients. I will absolutely order again.
Theanine has been a life saver for me and my son. We both suffer from anxiety and nothing works like L-theanine. I feel really good about this brand and look forward to trying more of your products!!
First of all let me say that I was not paid at all to try these out, i came on Amazon and did my own research to find the best product to help with my anxiety. I have random anxieties throughout the day and it is not an every single day thing for me, thank goodness. So, not wanting to go out and get a prescription i wanted to try over-the-counter ones first and I absolutely love these!!! I have random anxieties that flare up randomly and if i take one of these I am calm and collected in a matter of 15-30 minutes. I get claustrophobic on airplanes and have other random anxieties that i have used these for and I promise these work like a charm. Will definitely re-order these when I finish my first order.
My therapist recommended L-Theanine as an all natural mood stabilizer to help me with my anxiety. I take it every morning with my other supplements and I definitely have noticed a difference. I'm not going to promise life changing results overnight but after adding this into my routine that daily anxiety has all but gone away. I can still have anxiety and panic attacks but before I started taking L-Theanine I would wake up anxious every day for no reason and it would stay with me until I went to sleep at night. Other supplements I've taken of L-Theanine had additives that didn't work well with my body, so far this one is the only one that's worked for me but everyone is different.
Have been taking this product to eleviate anxiety and To aid with sleep. It works perfectly for both
The positive results I have had with Suntheanine L-Theannine 200mg, have been great. I have only used the product for a few weeks, but the results were felt the first day. The great part about the product is no drowsiness, and an almost unnoticeable calming. As I continue to go about my day I am just aware that the anxiety that was there has dissipated.It is great to be able to be off medications I was taking for anxiety!
This supplement really helps with my anxiety and helps me feel calm and serene. I love sports research products as they really work!!!
After using this product for a short time, I am amazed at the benefits that I have already experienced. I am a person who has always struggled with anxiety, stress, and feeling overwhelmed. However, I have never wanted to take prescription medication for anxiety. I am so thankful to have found this product. It truly takes the edge off my anxiety. I am able to handle stress much better than before. An added benefit is that I am falling asleep faster and sleeping better since taking this product. I am so thankful to have found something that really works!
It has greatly helped keep my mood calm and allows me to focus on work, projects, etc.during stressful times. I'm kind of amazed. I had hopes for it, but also doubted a natural supplement could really affect brain waves and anxiety. This one does.
This stuff works, and works well! Pair with caffeine to get increased focus without negative side effects (e.g., anxiety).
I started taking these for help with anxiety, a life long sufferer, and for the reported help of a deeper sleep it promotes. IT WORKS! I had gotten to the point where I never dreamed or certainly if I did, never remembered them. I dream every night now and remember several every morning. I'm feeling more rested now and having suffered with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, getting a restful nights' sleep is something I haven't had in almost 20 years. I'm not experiencing the level of anxiety I usually do and the description of calm alert describes it's benefits perfectly. So glad I found this miracle in a bottle. The only down side is that the pills are large and round making them more difficult to swallow, however for the benefit this supplement brings, I'd get it down somehow, no matter it's size or shape.
This product is great in combination with coffee or any caffeine...you'll get the mental boost and energy without the anxiety/ jitters. Just clear mental focus
Took away the Jitters with coffee. Made me feel more relaxed. Definitely helped with my anxiety. I've tried many things and this worked well with no side effects
Just great. I'm a health professional who was looking for a supplement to decrease my anxiety/stress levels and increase my focus. I am literally a different person entirely after taking this. The effects to someone else may be minor, but to me, they are life-changing. My anxiety has decreased dramatically on the days that I take it with a cup of black tea because I read caffeine increases its effects (currently only taking this supplement a few days a week because I worry the effects may wear off - does anyone know about this?! Lol) and my alertness/focus has increased dramatically. I can think more clearly and problem solve better.
My doctor told me to use L-Theanine to combat anxiety and to help me sleep better at night. I first tried a few other brands before trying Sports Research L-Theanine and found Sports Research to be superior. I feel the effects by taking just 1 soft gel as compared to having to take 2 or 3 of the other brands' for the same result. L-Theanine is truly an amazing supplement. I feel more relaxed without feeling lethargic, less anxious and my sleep is much deeper and more restorative now. It's not toxic to the body - even if taking it several times a day. I love this supplement and really rely on it now.
I LOVE this product. I have terrible anxiety and trouble sleeping, after taking this I am calm, and clear minded. I can fall asleep 100x better at night about 20 min after taking. I love that this has no fillers and no crap added to it, so easy to swallow compared to my other vitamins. This is by far the best suntheanine I've tried. Thank you!
Works extremely well, better than I had expected. Not a miracle drug, but definitely takes the edge off my anxiety without any of the crazy side effects of a prescription. As an added bonus, when paired with coffee it takes away all of the negative (more anxiety, shakiness, crash later) and provides a smooth, constant energy level.
This stuff is amazing. It really helps me with my anxiety and also with helping me focus. It helps me with my mood and attitude. I have hypothyroidism and sometimes I struggle to concentrate and remember things. It is called brain fog. Anyway, this stuff is eliminating that problem for me. I take 2 or three a day and usually with some form of caffeine. I have ordered it several times already. I never want to be without it again.
This product seems to lower my anxiety. Most supplements take several months to see true results, but I have seen enough already to continue trying this supplement.
I have a anxiety disorder that leaves me shaky and filled with anger and this supplement has vastly improved my life.
I was having anxiety and decided to try GABA and L-theanine. Your product had great reviews so I tried it. I have not felt anxious or restless since taking this and it helped the GABA absorb better than taking GABA alone. I’m very satisfied.
I have been taking this supplement almost 2 months and have noticed a dramatic decrease in my anxiety! I have told many people about this.
Great for anxiety!!! Won't make you sleepy!
I suffer from heavy bouts of depression and anxiety and since I started taking these daily, my flair ups of depression and crying episodes are nonexistant anymore. I don't agree with all the bill nye talk about the "placebo" effect since I was hardly even able to function before taking these due to heavy stress and anxiety. Now, even when I feel sad It isnt nearly as intense as it used to be and i can think rationally without a feeling of impending doom lingering about in my mind. I think the only drawback is the inevitable extreme sleepiness that comes with taking this, as well as most anti anxiety meds. I have to drink caffiene halfway through the day or i will be purely exhausted, but I think thats a fair trade for what I was feeling before. I can relax and enjoy a lot more normal activities instead of hiding away, and i feel more open to social situations now than before.
This stuff is legit. It helped with mild anxiety and overall good mood. Highly recommended
Amazing product! Works great for anxiety and increases energy. Love it! Will buy again. Thank you. I take 3 pills a day and anxiety is down to 10% or complete gone! Wish I knew about this supplement before . Now I am of lexapro and feeling so good. Thanks
Great product, fast shipping. Has really helped so much with my anxiety. This along with Ashwaganda really helps me be able to sleep at night instead of lying awake worrying, getting up and down all night long because I can't sleep with my mind going 100 mph. Now with this and the Ashwagandha I fall asleep rather fast most nights. Also helps with my BP.
We have been using this product for about a year as a part of our supplement regime. I’m impressed with this product line, and I appreciate that they use the Suntheanine L-theanine. We have noticed a big difference in sleep quality and overall reduction in anxiety. Continual long term consistent use has yielded best results!
We love it. It really helps take the edge off of my Son's anxiety.
I’ve tried this supplement before, but a different brand. This works really well. I like that it comes in a 200mg capsule. This is the recommended dose for anxiety.
I've been using Sports Research L-theanine 200 mg together with PharmaGABA to help with anxiety and I've noticed a definite difference. This combination was recommended by Dr. Michael Murray in his book "Stress, Anxiety, and Insomnia - What the Drug Companies Won’t Tell You and Your Doctor Doesn’t Know."
Just started taking these this week. So far, I feel they are helping me with my mood/anxiety. I will update this review in a month or two.
This stuff has helped with my anxiety so much. I take it everyday and love the calm I feel after taking it.
This product has helped me stay calm at a stressful job and maintain a positive mood throughout the day. I take 2-3 spread out between morning, mid day, and evening and this has made a noticeable difference in my stress levels and anxiety. Highly recommend!
Really works for mild anxiety caused by physical or emotional issues.
I've had an anxiety disorder for 20 years. I do my best to control it without medication. My tricks work for the most part during the day but anxiety frequently disturbs my sleep. A friend of mine recommended I try L-theanine. After research, I decided to try this brand. I've tried many natural remedies for anxiety over the years so I wasn't expecting a whole lot. But I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't make you drowsy and won't fix insomnia. But I definitely felt calmer and more settled. And after a week or so, I noticed the quality of my sleep had improved. Anxiety wasn't waking me up multiple times per night. I'm very pleased with this product and it surprised me. I shared some with 3 other friends so I'm back for a refill early! It's not a miracle pill. But it is definitely gentle to your system and an effective aide in relaxing for sleep. I love that I can take it before bed on an empty stomach.
I have been taking these for almost a year now and I love it. I have anxiety and I just take one of these in the morning and I feel relaxed all day. Nothing else has ever worked for me until I started taking this brand.
Great anxiety relief overall, I stack it with fat burners and preworkout and get no extra anxiety from the high amounts of caffeine, no drowsiness, must have for anyone with an anxiety response to high stimulant supplements.
for me, this l-theanine helps take the anxiety out of drinking coffee. while i'm cautious to over-hype anything too much, discovering this product has improved by life, for sure.
Outstanding supplement! Helps a lot with my anxiety and really good especially if you take stimulants for ADHD or drink caffeine regularly!! Gets rid of the uncomfortableness and the edge. One of the few supplements with a ton of proper research to back it and I have to say I'm pretty skeptical of most supplements, but this is one of the few that really has a drastic impact on one's mood. 10/10.
My MD recommended this for anxiety. I take several in the AM with coffee in a technique known as stacking. I take several again in the evening after dinner as part of my wind down routine and sleep super well.
I love sports research L-Theanine, it helps tremendously with anxiety, and I love all the other products too because they’re in a coconut oil base
Update:11/7/16 These things really do help with my anxiety. Take two a day now. One in morning and late afternoon. My anxiety has decreased where I am comfortable going places
I'm 48 and been going through Para menopause for a few years now. So far this has helped my anxiety, energy, metabolism, restless legs, sleep. I'm hoping to see my memory improve. Since my hormones have been out of whack my concentration and memory have not been as sharp. Reminds me of when I was pregnant in my 20's and the hormones messed with my brain. I was in a constant brain fog. I'll update this review after taking these supplements.
This is a great product. However I would not recommend this If you are expecting it to cure you’re anxiety because it won’t, but it definitely has helped me relax more when my mind towards the side of panic. I highly suggest giving it a try. It’s more than worth it.
I was sceptical at first, as most people probably are when trying supplements for the first time. I have been dealing with work related anxiety and focus issues due to the stress. After a few days of taking this regularly, I have noticed improvement with the anxiety aspect. I can't commit fully on the cognitive aspect, but have noticed slight improvements and am able to recall information slightly quicker than before. I would definitely recommend this product to others dealing with high levels of anxiety and focus related issues. As of two weeks of continuous use, I have yet to experience any negative side-effects.
I am taking this product with 5htp and it is amazing. My moods have been stabilized since taking this and no bad side effects. I will continue to buy this brand. If you are buying this for anxiety please take with 5thp It will be life changing.
It all started extremely well. For the first 7-10 days I noticed my anxiety was clearly diminished, almost to zero, and due to this I was able to focus much better, and I gave credit to the Suntheanine that I was taking together with a premium Matcha tea I love to make. But after 2 weeks or so the effect kinda disappeared and anxiety started to climb again. I was surely facing a long, very stressful period, but I'm not sure on why I noticed this difference between these 2 periods of the month, since the stress was pretty much the same... anyway, it looked like it's a good product and I really enjoyed the effect I got in the first 2 weeks.
I was advised to take this supplement to elevate mood and energy. I am really satisfied with the results over just a few weeks. I have been using this for anxiety and I can see clear results. It is amazing for anxiety-- helps calm the nerves and hence more mental energy! Would absolutely recommend!
Been using Suntheanine to manage my anxiety for about two years, and this is the most potent one I've tried. Yay!
I have been taking L-theanine for my anxiety 4 months now. I have noticed a significant change in my struggle with daily activities. I take one 200mg softgel with my morning coffee which seems to help intensify the effectiveness. I feel more calm and at ease. I am also having less panic attacks and small hiccups in plans don't completely overwhelm me anymore. I'm happy with the results and would recommend trying it if you struggle with daily anxiety. Also I'm not a doctor, so as always, seek your health care professional before starting any new regimens.
I use this to calm my anxiety and help me sleep! I have tried different brands of this supplement but sports research brand has been my favorite by far.
I feel like the product has somewhat of an effect on me, as I have tried taking them both before bed and in the mornings. When I take it before bed, I wake up about the same as usual, except I felt like I slept longer. I'm hopeful that I can learn what else I can do with this. In the morning, I take this and feel more at ease with my anxiety, and perhaps become more sociable. However, I cannot say completely as this may be a placebo effect. Overall, I feel like the product has authentic ingredients, and you can't go wrong with this manufacturer.
I take L-Theanine to start my day every morning and truly believe it has helped me control my panic attacks. It keeps my anxiety levels down without causing any drowsiness. I feel like it has been such a blessing.
Sport Research L-Theanine is an incredible product that has benefit my quality of life. This supplement reduces my blood pressure and work-induced anxiety. It allows me to focus, remain in a "wizard-brain" state-of-mind, and interact with others more peacefully. I am so grateful this product was recommended to me!
To start off let me say I am an avid supplement user and have tried almost everything holistic or natural under the sun including various brands. Usually I buy my L-Theanine at Vitamin Shoppe but I decided to look on Amazon, because supplements tend to be cheaper on Amazon. After reading the good reviews for this product, I decided to give it a try. WOW is all I can say! the absorption is faster with these unique coconut oil capsules, and the relaxed and focused feeling from L-Theanine seems stronger with this brand. The vitamin shoppe brand one would make me a little foggy headed, however with this one I am razor sharp, relaxed, and slightly giggly. I'm in sales so its good to have something to relax you and take away anxiety. I highly recommend this product and brand, because everything about this product is high quality. Try it, the price is good and the RESULTS ARE NOTICEABLE the first time you take it unlike most supplements. I will be purchasing other products from this brand in the future.
Incredible product. I take product at various times. Some days I take it before going to sleep, most other days, I take it about 20 minutes before a stressful event. It completely works for me. Yes I still feel anxiety, but its not overwhelming and it gets rid of those butterflies in your stomach. If you or anyone you know suffers from anxiety, I would definitely give this product a try.
De-stress with Suntheanine® L-Theanine and Ashwaganda, especially if you have Lyme disease. I am dealing with chronic Lyme disease, which is a stressful and tall order for so many reasons. My Lyme doctor's protocol calls for L-Theonine and Ashwaganda for stress, with the L-Theonine acting to potentiate the Ashwaganda. Suntheanine® is my favorite brand - I can tell it is working. I was so happy o be introduced to this great combo for stress and anxiety!
My prescription anxiety medications becoming less effective, so I supplementing with l-theanine. It has helped balanced my mood.
Wooooooooooow! It really worked! I suffer from PTSD,and clinical depression. I'm treated for the others but no success with anxiety help. I did NOT expect this to work like everything else. Well I'm glad I was wrong:). First day, first dose I felt very calm and relax but not TIRED. It also did not increase my appetite like Xanax or Ativan do. Yes, finally......just for comparison I'm 33 year old female.
I have used l-theanine for several years now for anxiety, quieting the mind, and helping with the sleep. I have found that Sports Research is an excellent brand and that 200mg is the perfect dosage.
This has reduced my anxiety in half (it's pretty bad currently), without making me tired. I take one on an empty stomach in the morning and again around 3pm. Highly recommend!
This is a really good supplement for stress and anxiety. It definitely calms me down and gives me improved focus. I have found that its effect is amplified when taken with an oil supplement, such as flax seed, primrose, or fish oil. It's best to take it on an empty stomach, but you can get it to take effect sooner if you chew the pill and hold it in your mouth for a little while (sublingually). It's pressed in coconut oil, so the taste isn't bad. Overall, a great product that I would highly recommend.
Fantastic stuff, best I've tried. I take this at bedtime and withing 20 minutes...I'm out. I feel much more able to handle stress and anxiety. This is the best L-Theanine I've had.
I had been taking a cheaper version before I ordered this but didn't feel like it was making a difference. I am looking for some relief for my anxiety that causes me to pick and I don't want to take rxs if I can help it because I have in the past and they change my personality and can make me feel like a zombie. I have def noticed a change since I started these, even my husband noticed my picking "hot spots" are better. The pills are a big big, and you have to take it on an empty stomach, so I just take it first thing and chug water after so it doesn't get stuck.
I have been talking this product for 2 weeks now and I already feel so much better when it comes to my anxiety. I heard about this product from friend of mine who swears by it and decided to give it a try. I take it twice a day on an empty stomach and already notice difference in my energy, mood and sleep. Always better to try natural product due to less side effects. Thankful for this company and their mission in helping people with their products.
I love this product (L-theanine). I have a tendency to run on stress and this really helps lower my stress and anxiety level. My thought process feels clearer. Doesn't make me drowsy during the day but I sleep well at night. All in all great products!
I use the supplement to help me control anxiety. I feel calm and able to go ahead with my day. I just started on my second bottle.
This is my 2nd bottle and so far this is the best L-Theanine I have tried. It helps take the edge off my anxiety and greatly improves my focus.
I suffer from anxiety a lot at work and I've been using this product daily and it has decreased the amount of anxiety I get during the day. It also helps decrease the amount of anxiety attacks I get or how emotional I get.
I absolutely love this stuff. It is a lovely supplement for taming stress and anxiety and helps take the edge off when needing to take Modafinil. This is my second bottle of L-theanine and certainly not my last.
Not sure if it is psychological or not but if I am feeling on edge with a bit of anxiety, I pop two of these and within 30 minutes my mood and state of mind is calm.
Long story short, I take these over prescription antidepressants/anti-anxiety medication. It's not over bearing, it comes on slowly and is superb for sleep!
I have used both the Turmeric and L-theanine from you guys and as someone that struggles with anxiety I feel noticeably better and have a lot more energy than I normally do!
Have used l-theanine for a while and it works well for mild anxiety/nervousness. This brand in particular seems to work very well.
Proven to reduce anxiety. I recommend this to my friends and use it whenever life gets a little crazy.
This anxiety crap is pretty new to me but it almost had me completely unable to function!! I take one of these pills in the morning and I am a lot more calm-minded throughout the day. No adverse side affects as of yet. Try it.
Helps with the caffeine comedown anxiety. No drowsiness or sedation with this product. It also helps in accessing the flow state when working.
I can honestly say it works. I buy so much on Amazon that it would be a part time job reviewing everything accurately. I use a lot of supplements for various reasons and most of the time I can’t tell it’s doing anything-except the knowledge that what I choose to take IS good for one to take regardless. I noticed this working right away. I felt calm and alert. I already drink coffee first thing in the morning, so that wasn’t hard to incorporate with taking the pill. I’m quitting marijuana, mainly bc it was causing anxiety. It was such a long habit that I was just used to smoking. So for me, quitting that was not mentally hard bc I was ready. My body & emotions were telling me a different story. I’ve been overly emotional, anxious, crying-you name it. I feel much better since taking this supplement! I’m going to start taking this with 5HTP. I read the L-Theanine, 5HTP & coffee combo is very effective. I’m trying to avoid going on anti-depressants/anti-anxiety medications. After doing my own research this particular brand clearly is the best one. I’m happy with it!
I take this every morning before work and if I have to drive somewhere on my days off. I have small anxiety issues and this helps a lot. This will be my 4th bottle. The pearls are a little hard to swallow because of their size, but still a great product.
I've tried other brands of L-theanine before and had good results so I was curious about this brand. I like that it's made with coconut oil, I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and can definitely feel a difference. It helps so much with anxiety, I take it once in the morning and that's all I need all day. Other brands I was having to take several times a day. Definitely recommend this product.
I have been taking this for about 6 months and it has really helped me with my panic attacks and anxiety.
I suffer from pretty consistent anxiety, especially on route to places. It seems to be effective thus far and I have been taking them for a month... Didn't notice immediate results UNTIL after a few weeks when I started missing days here and there. I would start feeling the anxiety arise again, and every time when I would try to figure out what I had done differently, I realized it was because I had missed a day. Looking back, I have much less general anxiety than I used to, and I can logically think through things that give me anxiety before my mind starts racing when I take these. Doesn't work like Kava root where you feel and instant sedated heavy effect but it's more like it handles things in the background. Definitely keep it up for a month or so to start really feeling results.
I've been using L-Theanine for about a year now, and it's made a big difference in my stress levels. Highly recommend to anyone with anxiety or a high-stress personality/job/situation.
Great mood booster. I've ordered 3 bottles so far (one for a depressed relative) and whenever I'm having a anxious or sad day, 1-2 of these clear the fog within 20 minutes. It's not a weight loss supplement, but it has curbed my emotional snacking habits. The coconut oil in which it's packed just adds to the physical benefits. Ladies - during that time of the month when you're just not yourself, reach for this in the morning! I'm less likely to bite someone's head off for sure.
What can I say, I love this stuff!! I'm not sure how much this helps with anxiety, but it has helped me sleep so much better at night. Every time I take this in the evening or right before I go to bed I sleep extremely well, EVERY TIME. I can also tell when I forget to take it, I wake up multiple times at night tossing and turning. Definitely recommend
I've ordered this product a few times and each time I take it I notice the difference. I take it while I'm at work and it makes me more calm and focused. I suffer from generalized anxiety and social anxiety and it eases my symptoms so I can function at work. Great quality product!
I love the L- Thenine. It helps me deal with daily stress a lot better. I've always had anxiety my whole life but never wanted to take prescribed meds. My life has gotten so much better after taking these daily.
Quick delivery. Great product that helps with stress. I have anxiety and this helps a lot.
Both my husband and i have been taking this for several months to help with relaxation and prevention of anxiety and stress. I find that it helps me to be alert and focused, but relaxed. I can tell that I have stopped taking it when I go a few days without a dose. We both like that it is mixed with coconut oil to help with absorption. This is the best brand of Theanine that we have tried. We will continue to purchase from Sports Research!
I hadn't tried theanine before and was pleasantly surprised by this product. I started taking it because I read that it could lessen the effects of stimulant-induced anxiety and edginess; I have GAD and ADHD and take Vyvanse for college classes so my anxiety can get pretty ramped up at times. I've found myself using it most in conjunction with caffeine or during the Vyvanse comedown. It makes me feel relaxed and focused rather than jittery and on-edge.
helps with anxiety, but not a good long term solution.
I really liked this product for many reasons. First, unlike many other brands, this one contained NO magnesium stearate. It was also suspended in organic coconut oil, which is really good for you. As far as potency and effectiveness, I feel that this product has been more effective or at least equally effective to the Jarrow brand that I have also tried. The only reason I give this product only 4 stars instead of 5 is because even though I can tell that the Theanine does have a positive effect on helping me to be calm and less agitated, the effect is not quite as strong as I hoped for. That said, I know that L-theanine affects different people to a different degree due to the physiological differences between people. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone thinking about trying L-theanine. I would also strongly recommend L-theanine to anyone looking to try a natural alternative to pharmaceutical anti-anxiety or ADD medications.
Try this on your day off first. I took it at work and felt a little too "good" for few hours. Then my thoughts were racing and felt a bit of anxiety but nothing overwhelming. Next day i cut a pill in half and it worked better for me, no anxiety and I didn't feel drugged.
I'm not too sure these are helping my anxiety at all, but since taking them I have been able to recall things much easier. My memory goes from bad to terrible on any given day - which is probably because of old age more than anything else! -
This L-Theanine is really fantastic! It helps my husband with his high blood pressure and really has a calming affect on me. I think it is an essential part of our supplements for healthier living. I am also impressed with Sports Research, which is truly high quality and really knows their stuff. Thank you for providing awesome and high quality products!
I have suffered with social anxiety for a couple of years now. Taking the product twice a day has done wonders for my overall quality of living!
Took one pill in morning felt slight affect. Asked wife to try one, she is a much calmer person then I, she experienced noticeable affect. She felt calmer. than calm. So I tried 2 the next day and it had a great affect. Dosage may depend on level of anxiety, mine is huge. I'm no expert but it appears to work depending on dosage and anxiety level.
I have a quiet response to stress. I don't feel it but my body/heart responds in the form of fast spikes in HR. I started taking this supplement at night and I fall asleep faster as it simply seems to quiet my anxiety without making me sleepy.
I have tried everything under the sun to help with my insomnia. From sleep studies and prescriptions to more "natural" remedies, nothing has worked long-term - except L-Theanine. If you are struggling with insomnia or anxiety, I really recommend giving this product a try. Who knows - you may not need to count sheep to sleep!
Read all the reviews about its Anxiety benefits. Since I've been taking it, it's drastically decreased my symptoms (heart racing, feeling of getting away of a situation). I feel more relaxed when taking it. I just bought my second bottle. Definitely recommend!
My acupuncturist suggested this for my stress and anxiety. So I decided to pop one before my 2 hour commute home one day. I hate that commute! Whether or not it was the Suntheanine, I found my drive was unusually calm for me this time around. Hmmm...
Very good supplement; I think it works. I am in perimenopause, so I have irritability and anxiety pretty often these days. This supplement seems to get the edge off.
My mother suffers from anxiety to the point that she could not leave her house to travel 8 minutes to her job in a pretty quiet town. After taking L-Theanine, she changed. She can actually leave her house now and do normal things. Since she told me about her experience with L-T, I decided to order some on amazon. This is the brand I ordered. I left a full time stable job to go back to college in a very competitive field, so the stress to make great grades along with financial struggles really took a toll on my nervous system. I started taking L-T and I have seen a huge change in my anxiety level. At first it was a really strange feeling to describe because I would have a huge exam the next day and usually I would be freaking out and trying to rush around to get things done as fast as possible so I could go study somewhere. Then when I studied I would be stressed about not having enough time to memorize everything. I think this made it even harder for me to retain the information. After taking L-T, I thought for awhile that maybe I didn't care about making good grades because the anxiety was gone! I've always associated caring with anxiety. I realized my study sessions weren't as stressful, I still made time to study but I wasn't cutting people's conversations off with me to run to the library, I was present in my life...I just had the focus to make the most of my study sessions. I love L-Theanine and I take one of these in the morning with some coffee before my normal vitamins. I def recommend to people that need help focusing or suffer from excessive stress or anxiety. Can't say enough good things about this stuff!!!
I took one 200mg gel cap for the first time today, and right away I began to feel relaxed, as it helped to decrease my anxiety significantly! I'm really happy this works as described. I feel relaxed, but fully aware. This is great for stress-free driving, in a stressful driving environment.
I bought these for myself after using a different brand for my Husky with anxiety issues. I was excited by the addition of the coconut oil. I'm an insomniac and mixing this with my Melatonion helps me relax so the Melatonion helps me get sleepy. Not to mention after being on this for a few days my meditation was allowing me to really clear my mind quicker.
Very pleased with the quality of this product. Works well for anxiety and aids in sleep.
I bought this to help with anxiety and stress and it seems to work. I've had it for a week or so now and taken one pill every day and i didn't see any changes on the first day but it does seem to work the days after that, just so long as I didn't drink coffee. I took two pills and a drank a cup of strong coffee just to see if I would still get the jitters but i did unfortunately. I had heard l-theanine is good with coffee to help relieve the anxious feeling you get from caffeine, but I guess it's not the same for all people since caffeine affects everyone differently.
First day trying this and already feel the effects! It was a high stress morning too, so I really put it to the test. I have generalized anxiety d/o and dysthymia (with more recently postpartum depression) and have researched natural remedies and treatments for a while before deciding to try L-theanine. I like it because it's naturally found in tea only in smaller doses. I like this company because they put a voucher in the box so I was able to order a free complimentary bottle too! So it's going to stock up my supply for a while. It's nice to get rewarded for purchasing a product, I will order again and check out their other products.
I've been taking this everyday and it has greatly reduced my anxiety at work. I used to have terrible anxiety a lot in my job and I don't anymore. I wish I had found this earlier.
The benefits of L-Theanine are well documented. I ordered this for my girlfriend as a non prescription alternative to anxiety medication and to help her deal with stressful days at work. I also ordered for myself because it helps me to get in a calm and focused state of mind when I need to work on my college assignments or get other important tasks done. Theanine takes the jittery edge off of caffeine, giving you a an excellent energy stack for workouts or studying. What's great about this brand is that they use suntheanine, which is the purest form that you can get, and it's in an easy to swallow soft gel capsule. The coconut oil seems to help for better absorption, and I've noticed that the effects of this brand last longer for me than others that I've tried. It is very likely that I will be ordering again.
I have a lot of anxiety throughout the day and often feel stressed and overwhelmed. I usually avoid going out and doing activities I used to love. After I started taking l-theanine for a week, I find myself so much more active since I am not stressed and worried so much! It has been great for me. I will continue to take it!
I have been searching for a long time to find something to help calm my thought patterns and anxiety. Being a constant worrier has plagued me for the past few years and has really taken a toll. While I was perusing through self-help books, I found one that spoke about the neurotransmitters in the brain and gave a list of supplements that could help and how they worked. I forget what the book was called, but L-Theanine was on the list and it spoke about how it interacts with GABA and that it's more efficient than GABA in crossing the blood-brain barrier. It also spoke about how Suntheanine is more pure than regular L-Theanine blends.
I have been struggling with severe depression and anxiety. Started taking this product with my anxiety medication and it has greatly improved my stress levels. I take it in the morning and I can feel a difference in my overall outlook.
I've had generalized anxiety my whole life. Now that's out of the way, I had no expections for this product doing anything, but I purchased it on a whim based on the positive reviews (yes, some of them are probably bogus) as well as other online forums praising the benefits of L-Theanine for relaxation. I took it and on day one... surprise!... nothing. No noticeable effect. Day two, three...same thing. I kept taking it after that because, dammit, I paid twenty bucks for this stuff, might as well use it until it's gone. A week or so later, I started to realize how relaxed I've been lately. I'm calm... like super chill all of the time. I'm still stressed out, but I'm calm enough now to focus on finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems. Its been one month and it's worked very well for me. I'm not sure if this particular brand is any better or worse than others, but if you have generalized anxiety, you might want to try L-Theanine. Don't expect any miracles. Just give it time and you might not notice how well it's working.
Great product. It calms me down and brings down anxiety very well. I use it daily with my afternoon coffee and it both manages the jitters and the racing nervous system, giving me a focused energy boost that lasts for hours afterwards.
I've been having problems with chronic anxiety lately. I read about L-Theanine online and decide to give it a try. These pills have been helping a lot and I will continue to keep taking them.
Started looking into nootropics after getting burned out at work after around 2PM. Found that this works really well in conjunction with caffeine! I use a 2:1 ratio with caffeine, so 1 pill in the morning and 100 mg of caffeine. I then take another around lunch and depending on how tired I am another 100mg of caffeine. Basically it takes away the negative effects of caffeine, i.e. jitteriness, anxiety, scattered focus. This stuff works great to be able to focus on what you need to get done. Provides a calming feeling without making you sleepy.
This is the best deal on Amazon for a product of this caliber. There’s no replacement for the Suntheanine processing and Sports Research is able to provide it at a great price. Excellent for anxiety and sleep.
I have suggested L-Theanine for others but had yet to find one that worked for me. Between a little inattention and anxiety, and a lot of chemo-brain, this product has helped with both. I feel more alert yet relaxed. I've been a bit less forgetful. Because of chemo finding words had become difficult and I still struggle but the struggle has shortened in duration. Other products made me super sleepy, this has not been the case with SR L-Theanine.
This is great for those who need a some additional calm and focus. I don't find that I personally need this everyday but it really helps when life brings extra stress and anxiety.
Just an update - this stuff truly is amazing if you tend toward anxiety, stress and over-thinking. I truly wish I had discovered this much sooner. I honestly can’t recommend it enough!
Really useful to have around. I really notice the jitters if I don't take this with my morning coffee. Also good for acute anxiety or nighttime unwinding.
I started using Suntheanine L-Theanine to help with stress and focus. I take it in the morning with a cup of coffee. It helps keep the jitters away and helps me respond to life’s inevitable stressors with more clarity and focus and less anxiety.
I drink a lot of coffee. I'll admit, sometimes too much. I keep a bottle of suntheanine l-theanine in my pantry for the occasions when coffee makes me jittery or nervous. This supplement calms me down and removes all of the shakes and anxiety that the consumption of too much caffeine creates. I have taken this product without caffeine and find little to no noticeable effects.
Been taking this for about a year to help with anxiety. I’m not sure if it works but it certainly doesn’t hurt to be taking it.
I just bought my second bottle! So far so good, no complaints, definitely no decrease in mood if anything. Over the past ten years, I've been through quite a few anxiety medications to little effect. I decided to try this after research and reading other reviews from people in similar situations to mine. I can't say for sure that it works but I would definitely say it's worth a try. I went through a very difficult and unforseen life change about 2 weeks after I started taking this and I've been shocked at how well I've gotten through it. I also started taking chelated magnesium and getting outside more around the same time i started this product, so I can't say for sure what has made me feel better, just that I am feeling better. I've been taking this product for about five weeks now and I don't plan to stop.
Very Effective! My husband takes this while studying in Medical School (year 3) and can focus for 8-10hrs! His professors recommended it. It's also somewhat of an anti-depressant, decreasing anxiety via increasing dopamine reception (the pre-curser to epinephrine)... basically increasing all the happy chemicals/neurotransmitters in your brain. It is more effective if taken with caffeine. We both take the recommended dosage of 1x/day, but L-theanine has a half-life of 4 hours so if you want to take more...you'll need to space it out at least that much for it to work.
I love this stuff. I've bought it many times now. I take one before sleeping and it has helped my sleep issues IMMENSELY. I recommend it if you have sleep issues as a result of anxiety.
Anxiety and stress level decreased, and I feel like I can think more clearly.
I absolutely love the l-theanine. It seems to help me manage my anxiety much better than I was without anything else. I used to take medication for it but I cannot anymore, so having something that can help me feel even the tiniest bit stress relief during the day is a lifesaver. Thank you.
This is my second time purchasing this product. I suffer daily from stress and anxiety and this is the only product that has helped tremendously. I take one pill in the morning and I feel calm and relaxed for the rest of the day.
This product has helped me manage my depression and anxiety. I believe it has worked better than other brands I have tried. I believe it may be attributed to the B vitamins it also contains. This product has changed my life.
I’ve found my mood to be more stabilized and have less mood swings. It’s helped with my anxiety and has helped me to wake up more refreshed in the mornings.
When I bought this product I was looking for a high quality high potency 5-htp to help with anxiety and depression. I needed something reliable to balance my serotonin levels. I found naturewise on amazon, and based on the reviews decided to give it a go. This product have proven to be potent and given great results. They are time-release and it keeps my mood elevated throughout the mood. You will definitely notice an immediate difference. Once ingested, you will feel the veil of fog begin to get lifted and a sense of clarity will rise followed by a sense of relief.
Love this product
5HTP has helped me with me mood and anxiety. I am less irritable while taking and less anxious. I also take a few other vitamins/supplements to help, as I do not like taking SSRI's due to the side effects.
Love this product, non GMO and significantly reduces my anxiety! So glad I found it!
I love this stuff. I really do think it increases my metabolism, as I have been out of the gym for 3 weeks (shin splints), but not able to eat great as my kitchen is out of commission due to a remodel...yet I am still losing weight, just more slowly than with my normal routine. It does give me more energy and helps my anxiety and it definitely helps me sleep better. My anxiety isn't terrible through the day normally, my main issue is when I lay down to go to sleep. I take the pill at night and I fall asleep and stay asleep much better. Even my husband says it helps him sleep better. I have been using this about 6 weeks and we both plan to continue.
I was suffering from anxiety and depression and not being able to sleep. This has already started to work with my sleep patterns, as I take it at night. I’m about halfway through my 60 ct bottle.
I feel happier than ever. Sleeping well. Use to take anxiety medication and turned to natural products. Would recommend this product to anyone! Works wonders!
I have trouble sleeping due to mild anxiety. I've taken antidepressants in the past (not recently), and didn't want to go that route again. I take one of these pills every night with a cup of tea with honey. I sleep great, I'm not tired during the day, and I'm calmer overall.
I LOVE the 5 HTP Plus. It helps control my appetite and mood very well. I ran out of the product and can tell a huge difference. I was having lots of anxiety and depression and this product has helped control those so much. This is a great product. I highly recommend it!!
I have suffered severe anxiety and depression 10+ years and my doctor recommended giving 5HTP a try. I have truly tried everything, anti depressants and anti anxiety medications for years and couldn’t stand the idea of being on pharmaceuticals for extended periods of my life just to get by. Not to mention besides immediate anti anxiety medications nothing worked long term. Since taking 5HTP I’ve noticed a shift in my moods and overall demeanor. I’m more optimistic, clear headed and feel more in the moment than I ever have. It has really made quite a noticeable difference for me.
Alleviated my depression and anxiety symptoms
I absolutely love these. They have helped my anxiety more than I ever thought possible. It has evened me out so much, I don't sweat the small stuff anymore and its an amazing change to my daily life. 100% recommend
Im 24 years old. I was diagnosed with Innatentive ADD at the age of 5. After losing my health insurance, I have been seeking alternatives to adderall to help me with my anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue/ energy levels, brain fog, focus, and overall mood.
My Doctor recommended I take this product for sleep and anxiety instead of Melatonin. Works so well and best of all its vegan.
I wake up some mornings with extreme anxiety. Since I've been taking NatureWise 5-HTP my mornings have been more peaceful and i am able to go about my day
Great product. Works really well to reduce my anxiety and stress.
I have c-ptsd and have had less anxiety and intrusive thoughts since i started taking this!
I have a lot of anxiety and trouble sleeping. I don't like taking prescription drugs, unless I have no other choice. Adding the 5-HTP plus and helped with my anxiety and sleep.
I have been trying everything I find to get my depression anxiety stress and adult add under control but primarily my stress. I was very skeptical about this product because again it was another product promising to do what the other tried/failed products promised. I stopped taking adderal cold turkey to start taking the the 5-htp, so that I could see if it was really working. After about two weeks I caught myself actually feeling happy. Feeling sort of relaxed, enjoying my daily duties and routine. Not edgie at all; i was feeling content and smiling. So I definitely believe 5-htp work. I didn't really notice weight loss. Maybe a bit of less eating but I also take wellbutrin 300 XR. I will continue to use as long as I notice it helping lessen my stress and anxiety.I love the shipping time and cost; arrives super fast and.what else can I ask for. Free third bottle is an amazing incentive. There's really nothing I dislike or didn't like about the product.
This product helps me stay calm and much more relaxed during the day, allowing me to get mundane tasks done without anxiety. It also has helped me get a good nights rest, peaceful quality sleep, I no longer find myself waking up multiple times during the night.
I have anxiety as well as post-trauma hypersensitivity. I am trying to avoid going back to antidepressants. Before starting to use the 5-HTP+ I was having angry outbursts and crying jags multiple times a day. After, I've been better able to cope with the gigantic amount of bad news going on in my immediate family. My reactions to the stresses of daily life are much more reasonable. It's been great so far!
I have felt a noticeable difference in my anxiety and depression episodes since I started taking NatureWise 5-HTP. I am grateful to have a natural supplement to aid in my mood stabilizing.
Helps keep my anxiety and depression levels down. I absolutely notice a difference when I'm taking this product, versus when I'm not. For history, I had been on depression meds for years, but didn't ever feel like they were helping me feel *better* so I did some research and decided to give 5-HTP a try. For me - it works AMAZINGLY. That being said...you should consult your doctor before using anything to alter your mood.
I started taking this when I started becoming a bit overwhelmed after starting graduate school. It does a nice job of taking the edge off of my anxiety. The anxiety isn't gone but, it's a lot more manageable now.
Really has helped decrease anxiety
EXCELLENT PRODUCT, HELPS REDUCE MY ANXIETY, BETTER SLEEP, MORE CALM AND STABLE. SUPER RECOMMEND.
The first couple of days taking this I had some very brief stomach pain but it never lasted long enough to stop me from trying again the next day. I'm glad I kept taking it because I no longer have any stomach upset whether I take on an empty stomach or with food. The results have been pretty awesome. I had been suffering from really bad anxiety for several years now, but taking this once a day in the morning has helped me tremendously! I had tried so many ways to get rid of the anxiety, from prescriptions to yoga and meditation (and everything in between) but nothing has helped me as much as this product. Other than the first couple days of brief stomach upset, I have experienced no side effects. I'm definitely reordering here as long as Amazon has it available.
It has been helping me lower my stress and anxiety.
I suffer from anxiety and these pills have helped so much, I've been able to cut down take my prescribed medication. Soon I'll be able to switch. They also help with my sleep and my mood.
This product has helped me with sleep quality and anxiety. I’ve been using it for 30 days, so I used the whole bottle. I’m hoping that as I continue to take it, the better I will be.
seems to be helping with sleep & anxiety... would recommend & plan to repurchase
First off I don't write reviews bc I'm lazy. With that being said though it's the make or break factor when i buy a product on Amazon. I suffer from mild anxiety n let little things get to me more than the normal person. After a couple days of taking this product I have to say that I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders I can't really explain it in detail but I'm definitely happier and I just see the bright side of life. It sounds really corny but with a positive attitude along with taking one pill a day, I just take on challenges with a smile and I know this product gave me the boost to think positive. Naturewise is a top notch company that cares about their customers and isn't just trying to make a buck. It makes a difference where u get ur 5htp trust me and these pills are top quality. I already feel the difference after 3 days. When you buy a product on Amazon they give you the opportunity to get a free bonus bottle, that is no joke. You just follow the instructions provided with your purchase. Honest review
This has really helped my energy levels, focus, and depression. I'm not able to exercise daily and I am feeling fantastic!! (I also take an omega supplement too) I've suffered from depression, anxiety, and ADHD my entire life.. This has helped a lot :-)
I have bee taking a medication for depression and anxiety, but this product really helps. It makes me feel a lot better and helps my mind to become clearer. I love that I only need to take 1 pill a day to give good results.
This product helps with my anxiety and stress
Hopefully I'm not writing a review too soon but I am excited. I recieved this bottle in the mail for free after I purchased their curcumin, i took it before bed and the next day I felt totally different. I've got a new job and it has totally thrown me into an unexpected whirlwind of anxiety, which causes me to forget stuff, which causes more anxiety. The day after I took these I was just more focused and happy. I found it easier to remember things, connected with people. I just felt more like myself and in my right mind. I also had a pretty good night of sleep and woke up easily the next morning. Can't wait to make this a part of my routine.
Taking this along with NurtaBio 100% Pure L-Tyrosine and it has significantly helped my "funks" I had just mild anxiety and this ha helped so much. I notice if I forget to take it. I take the 5-HTP at night and it really helps me sleep. I take the L-Tyrosine in the AM. I Think this combo has made all the difference In my anxiety. I hope this can help others!
I have episodes of anxiety on a near daily basis. Since starting nature wise 5 htp the episodes aren't as severe and don't happen as frequently.
I like that it’s a natural supplement that has helped with my anxiety without side effects
I have anxiety, trouble sleeping, and I am very tired and irritated throughout the day. I heard of 5 HTP and thought I would give it a try. So far, I have noticed that I can fall asleep a lot faster and stay asleep throughout the night. As a result, I wake up less irritated and in a better mood throughout the day. I feel less depressed in general. My anxiety still continues, but it's pretty severe so I wouldn't expect this to change much in that area. I feel like a happier person and I can tell I'm a more pleasant person to be around too.
such a wonderful product..I have terrible sleeping pattern and a ton of anxiety. this has literally changed my life. Thank you so much for the quality and customer service!
A great product that is helping me with my sleep and anxiety problems. I take it before bedtime and have been getting atleast 7 hours of sleep, instead of 5. This difference is substantial for me and results in lovely and calm mornings, the liikes of which I hadn't had in months.
love the product, works great pre bed time relaxation and combat anxiety
This product has helped me tremendously! I suffer from generalized anxiety and weaned myself off of Lexapro in favor of a more natural alternative. I notice I’m not as nervous and feel generally calmer as well as sleep better. My adult daughter has also started taking to help her with stress and insomnia.
I was having difficulty sleeping and had bad anxiety and I decided to research something that would help. I saw this bottle on amazon and read through all the reviews and I purchased it. Right away within the first few days my stress levels were down and I was sleeping in my normal pattern again.
I have a history of depression, anxiety, and ADD/ADHD. This product helps me balance my mood and focus enabling me to cut back on my daily rx medications. I will continue to take this product.
I've been taking these for a little over a week and I definitely feel the difference. Before I would get easily angered and my anxiety was the worst when I was stressed. Now, I have a lot more patience with my children and I am much more calm. I take mine a few hours before bed and I rest wonderfully, when I wake I feel so rested and ready to conquer my day. I take these along with Garcinia Cambodia, these combos help me fight my bad food cravings and suppress my appetite.
i have been taking this originally for aptite control. i take it after dinner. i feel like it helps calm my whol system down. it makes me feel more st ease as a whole. it gives me enough energy to yoga at night, it holds my energy up so i don’t get hungry. i have a lot of mood disorders and depression and anxiety, so something like this won’t fix that but i will keep taking it to see.
working on weight loss for health - also good for my moods and sleep, i've been taking it for 3 months now and feel it is helping me sleep better and feel less anxiety which in turn has helped curb my comfort food issues
This product has helped me to get more restful sleep and seems to reduce my anxiety. I previously used another manufacturers product and think that this one works better.
I have felt a noticeable difference in my anxiety and depression episodes since I started taking NatureWise 5-HTP. I am grateful to have a natural supplement to aid in my mood stabilizing.
5 HTP Plus + has changed my life. I had very severe anxiety and waves of depression. After trials of medication I decided to try a more natural approach and I can't imagine not having it in my life. My husband has noticed a huge change in my demeanor and I have overall sense of happiness with my days. I am constagnly recommending this supplement to everyone I know who suffers with depression and anxiety.
This product is great! I have tried a different brand of time release 5 htp before and could not see any changes until I tried this product. It improved my overall mood and helps with mild anxiety. I feel more optimistic and have more energy. I have been taking it every morning for the past 3 weeks or so. It only took a couple days for me to notice improvements. Highly recommended! Also received a free bottle after buying this product from Amazon. Great customer service and products arrive quickly.
This product does wonders! I am full of anxiety and a have depression. This helped with my moods and also helped control my appetite. I eat great but am always hungry at the wrong times.
Helped greatly with sleep and stress related anxiety.
Works the best of any 5-htp I've tried for anxiety
Really helped ease my stressful work life, and my life, in general. Thanks for helping me think before I act, and helping with the stress and anxiety of everyday.
My Nurse Practitioner recommended 5-HTP for me, so I decided to try it. Though my medical provider said I can take 400 mg daily, I am currently only taking 200 mg because that dose is therapeutic for me. It helps provide me with an overall sense of well-being and assists with regulating my appetite. While taking it, I feel less anxiety and I tend to get better sleep.
Have dealed with insomnia and anxiety forever! This is the only natural product that helps!
Definitely have seen a decrease in anxiety and an improvement in my overall mood.
This product has helped tremendously. I suffer from anxiety and I also have trouble sleeping and managing stress, and after a week of taking this product I noticed a difference. My thoughts weren’t anxiety ridden, I felt calmer, and I was better able to sleep through the night. 10/10 would recommend.
Since I began taking 5-HTP Plus+, I sleep like a baby and it has really helped with my anxiety. I love this product!
It has been working great, I’ve been able to half my dose of anxiety medication and I’m about 3 weeks in. I feel less anxious in the morning which has always been my struggle. I also feel less hungry all the time. I love it!
I've been using this product specifically to help with both my sleep and mood. So far it's had a mild effect, but it is worth it and I'll keep using it. While it hasn't been a life changer, I do notice it helps my mood to stay a little more steady (especially since it's a delayed release capsule) and helps me sleep a little better at night. It also helps with anxiety.
I have always dealt with anxiety and depression. I had been taking Zoloft for years and I finally got tired of taking a prescription drug, so I tried 5-HTP. It has been great.
I've used 5-HTP for help in dealing with acute anxiety and sleep issues...I recently did some research to purchase more 5-HTP and I chose NatureWise. I am happy with my purchase. Product quality, packaging, labeling, and shipping were great! I received a second bottle free for taking time to submit my honest review.
I definitely sleep better and feel less anxiety since taking this product.
Good product. helpful with alleviating anxiety.
I suffer from depression and anxiety. I decided to go a natural route and after some research I kept seeing people mention 5-HTP having great results. I did some comparison shopping and went with Naturewise because it is a trusted brand. I take other Naturewise supplements. After 2 months I noticed a difference in my mood and overall outlook on life. I was kinda of skeptical but hopeful and I'm glad I went with Naturewise 5-HTP. I've recommended it to friends as well, even bought a bottle for a friend who was skeptical. haha - Chad K.
I have been taking 5-HTP Plus+ for the better part of 2 weeks now. I have never taken a daily supplement before, so I was curious to try this out after I read many positive reviews. Normally, I'll take at least one anti-anxiety pill a day, and an Ambien to fall asleep at night. Since I've started taking 5-HTP, I find no need for either drug. My mood has greatly improved, and not even a day-to-day mood but an overall feeling of optimism. Things that used to bother me, no longer seem like a big deal. I absolutely 100% recommend this product to anyone who struggles with anxiety or sleeping problems, I've already referred a few close friends and family members and I'm excited to hear what they have to say about it.
High-quality 5-HTP. I only use time-release and previously I knew of just one brand that offered it. Now Naturewise has gone ahead and created an excellent new option. The price is much better and the quality as good as it gets. This is my new go-to brand. 5-HTP is a huge help for me with sleeping and curbing bouts of anxiety and depression. I received my second bottle of this for free just for writing how much I love it. Can't beat that either.
I've been giving 5-htp plus as part of a few supplements to my 15 year old son for 4 months. It was recommended to us by our family psychologist to help with his anxiety. We've been happy to see him return to a less stressed boy with fewer anxiety episodes. He feels better able to cope with stress.
I feel calmer and have noticed that I'm not as hungry as I normally am...basically, I don't think that I am emotionally eating as much as I normally do. I suffer from depression and anxiety and after trying many medications decided that I wanted to take more of a natural approach...and definitely feel a difference on this product.
This is a GREAT product at a great price. I've been using 5-HTP for six months now, upon recommendation from my doctor, and I really am appreciating the benefits. My moods have become less "roller coastery" with less mood swings and feeling more emotionally stable, as well as less anxiety. NatureWise offers an added boon to their 5-HTP, a time release so that the supplement can be absorbed in a steady lower dose through out the day, which is great! They've got some other products I am keen to try, and would highly recommend this brand to folk who like me are looking for high quality at a good value.
Very very effective. I would take 1 or 2 daily, and now I don't need it as much. It's like it has balanced me out somehow. Work is not as stressful as it seemed to be. I feel very mellow and not as reactive as I used to be.
I have pretty bad anxiety and difficulty sleeping as a result. Since I've started taking this, I\'ve noticed a significant improvement in my quality of sleep and how quickly I fall asleep. I still have difficulties, this product is not a cure, but it is a vast improvement.
This stuff has definitely improved my life. Honestly, I haven’t seen much benefit in terms of anxiety, sleep or appetite control. But my mood, which is what I bought it for, has improved 100%. My life isn’t a lot of fun right now...my job is crazy hectic and I’m caretaker for my elderly mother with dementia. I have very little time for myself and I was really becoming depressed and cranky, snapping at my mom a lot & then feeling bad about it. This has helped so much by lifting my mood, helping me to roll with the punches and giving me a lot more patience in dealing with the challenges of the situation. I found this just in time...I think it helped to prevent a total meltdown.
I will update later, but I swear first night slept like I was on vacation, that yummy sleeping I used to have before work, stress and lufe happened, vivid drip but went back to sleep easily after bathroom break. And maybe just because of that I was almost euphoric for not feeling like I hate work and overwhelmed! To me this is impossible, so I will wait a while...my mental dispisition is type A at work, anxiety whilst forfilling work goal and in between not motivated at all.I am moody, holidays get me down, and generally winter months, I wouldn't say im clinically depressed , but I tend to have negative thoughts regularly. Im very curious to see if this was a fluke of having a good nights sleep or the beginning of something good. I will pay attention moving forward how everything is...
I love it! I really seems to take the edge off of my anxiety & stress without taking a prescription
I have been living with milder version of anxiety for almost 15 years.Of course i have tried a lot different products, but none of them weren't good enough for me. Until one day my boyfriend found 5-htp and bought it for me to try. I have been taking this product over 2 months and for the very first time of my life i can say, that i have found the perfect solution for my moods, anxiety and negative thoughts. I feel PERFECT!
This stuff works for me! I have been through a lot in the past year, leaving me with anxiety and a very mild depression. I was finding it hard to be positive and this was effecting my relationships with people. I was always in my head-making it hard to have normal conversations with people. I have been taking this for around a week and a half.
5-HTP helps with my low level anxiety and sleeping difficulties. I haven't had any negative side-effects in the three weeks I've been taking it, but I also started taking a variety of other vitamins and supplements, as well as changing my eating habits (for the better) since starting on 5-HTP. The product was well packaged and comes in a sturdy plastic bottle.
This is working well for me. I've tried many brands of 5-htp and this works as well or better than many others I've tried. I take this for anxiety and for sleep problems. This helps take the edge off of my anxiety and when I wake at night I am able to fall back asleep without a problem (without 5-htp I wake up and stay up...) Also the price makes it a good value so i will purchase again in the future.
I started taking 5HTP about a month ago. I have anxiety, particularly obsessive thoughts. I have noticed a decrease in my racing thoughts since starting 5HTP. I think a combination of this supplement, other supplements, and talk therapy is work is working for me. I've had zero negative side affects. I highly recommend it.
I have been dealing with severe anxiety and depression and was suggested to try this for mood. I am also taking several prescription meds, but have been improving steadily. I can't say it's the at all, be all--but I'm going to continue taking it!
I have hashimotos disease and I get a lot of anxiety as a side effect and this product really helps. I have tried a lot of prescription anti anxiety medications and mood stabilizers, including anti depressants. At first I thought it wasn't working because I felt nothing but the day I forgot to take it I was extremely anxious. I love it. It helps me sleep better and helps a lot with my anxiety without feeling tired or drugged.
I have a mental health condition which can make my moods unstable suffer with anxiety which in turn affects sound sleep. Having opted to manage symptoms without medication I prefer to self -medicate with carefully researched herbal & natural supplements. I've taken 5htp for many years & try a different brand when necessary such as unavailability/ not in stock/ drop in quality etc these were on Amazon & given the positive reviews gave them a go. I take one about 20 minutes before bed... they worked from first time... felt noticeably relaxed & ready for sleep but the big success is that i stayed asleep! More than happy to recommend based on this alone... had no headaches which has happened when 200mg strength taken previously. On a bad day i take one around lunch time & again helps to keep me level... great product.
Working great appears appetite reduced and also anxiety
I bought my first bottle of 5-HTP about a month ago. It has given me more energy and calmed my anxiety. I am sleeping better at night, and waking refreshed. It seems to curb my appetite as well. I would definitely recommend this product!
I take a 5-htp on a regular basis as prescribed by my NP. This particular product has by far made me feel the best. Anxiety levels are less and sleep is better. I will recommend and continue to use this product over the others out there on the market today.
I am usually a huge skeptic of herbal products but by day 3 I felt like I had a better grasp on my stressors and anxiety. I feel focused and calm and when an overwhelming situation has presented itself, (I work full time, am planning my wedding and pursuing my Master's degree- so there's plenty!) I've been able to handle it calmly and concisely. I wish I had started on this years ago.
I bought these as a sleep aid to replace the Trazodone that I had been taking. The trazodone would leave me groggy sometimes, and I would rather take an herbal supplement than a medication, but that's just me. This seemed to do just as well as the trazodone for sleep. Sometimes my mind keeps going when my body is ready for sleep. This helps to calm me and make me relaxed enough to fall asleep. I also noticed that I just felt a little less worried about things in general. After I ran out, I bought some Valerian root to try it out and see if I could replace 5htp with Valerian root. It doesn't seem to help at all with sleep, and I might end up throwing it out because Valerian actually smells like dog poop. I am going to buy another bottle now, and also plan on pursuing a free bottle from NatureWise for writing this review.
Great for keeping me calm when my anxiety is acting up
I have noticed a calming effect while taking these supplements. I am taking them to possibly help my anxiety and depression, along with a medication. I really like it and I plan on taking it daily.
Firstly the customer service is first class and secondly the product has reduced my anxiety and I am sleeping better. Excellent quality product
These pills are amazing they have helped with my stress and anxiety attack’s and I’m always in a better mood now
I suffer from insomnia and anxiety. Product has improved my anxiety levels and is starting to work on my insomnia. Product is easy to take and so far seems to be working.
After getting off of my anti-anxiety medication, I needed a more natural approach to dealing with my anxiety. No side effects, but benefits of calmness and ability to tolerate stressful situations.
It takes a little bit of time before there are any noticeable effects, but after taking this product for about a week, I have definitely noticed an overall improvement in anxiety and depression. I would recommend taking it before bedtime as it can make you a little sleepy. Like many nootropics, the effects of 5-HTP are very subtle and do not occur immediately, but if taken daily it can improve your mental wellness.
Within a couple days of taking the 5-HTP Plus I noticed a difference in my anxiety level. But after a week of taking the vitamins I have noticed an increase in energy and a lot more patience during the day. I have been taking 5-HTP for a couple of years now but this brand is first to give me results with a couple of days. I Will definitely be ordering again.
I started taking this supplement to help with my anxiety and it definitely has. I have a very stress job and very often have my anxiety get to me at work, since taking the 5-HTP I have definitely notice a difference.
It is helping my wife with her anxiety and control her appetite. She takes it with Omega 3 and helps a lot. Definitely seen a difference
It has helped minimize my feelings of anxiety, reduce my occurrence of panic attacks, and lift my mood!
Nice, subtle calming effect. I take it during the day to help with mild anxiety.
I have anxiety and insomnia, coupled with depression. I mainly take it to assist with depression and sense of well-being. I am also overweight and have found that it does help with appetite control and elevates my mood somewhat. I am sleeping better at night and feeling more restful.
Great product! I'm finally able to enjoy life with less anxiety.
Nature wise improved my mood and helped with anxiety.
I have been taking 5-HTP Plus for almost a month and ordered another bottle from Amazon. I started taking it because a friend said it helps with anxiety, after 4 or 5 days I could really tell a difference and it also has helped with my sleeping
(I share this account with my son) initially, I was given a bottle by a friend and then bought some for my (adult) daughter that is wary of prescription medications and attempting to go a more natural way with supplements, diet and other lifestyle changes for menopause, depression and anxiety. both her and I would say the results have been positive. She feels although it doesn't help her get to sleep, it definitely has improved her sleeping patterns to the benefit of her work schedule and has alleviated some of her symptoms. For myself, I feel it helps lift some of my 'brain fog' and has helped in reducing some of my moodswings. We're both going to try taking it for a year and see how it goes
My wife has gotten better sleep, felt less stressed and moody, and has had noticeably more energy since taking this the last 3 weeks. She will absolutely be ordering a second bottle. If makes us both feel elated to see results and improvement without having to resort to prescribed medication. Nature Wise is the way to go if you’ve got feelings of anxiety that are interfering with your life and want to take a natural healing approach.
Skeptical, but I needed to try something besides feeling angry and agitated all the time. I would say by day 4 I started feeling better in a way I can't describe. I am less annoyed at people and at little things one shouldn't get angry at. I missed a day of taking the recommended dose and I snapped right back into feeling extremely agitated all over again. It's hard to measure being in or out of a state of mild depression or anxiety, but overall I think it is helping. I am glad I gave it a try!
Great product!! If you are looking to even out your moods whether it be anxiety, depression, short/long term recovery, grief and loss, sleep issues... this helps tremendously and the B6 being the right amount integrated with the capsule i feel makes a big difference. I take it with a ssri and no issue as well as Sam, l-theanine and tryptophan and gaba. no side effects for but ask your pharmacist or nutritionist. Highly recommend!!!
I suffer from anxiety and sleepless nights. This product has helped me go to sleep easier and wake up with a feeling of happiness. I take one capsule before bed every night.
I am pleased with the performance of 5-htp from naturewise.com. I purchased this for help with anxiety, depression insomnia and appetite control. I have obstructive sleep apnea and 5-htp has worked well for me to relive the symptoms above combined with a two mile brisk walk daily in 30 minutes and a light workout. I have lost 5 lbs and feel much less anxiety.
LOVE this product!! Found it to be an excellent value and very helpful! In perimenopause and have mood swings, depression and anxiety. THIS has truly helped me - will buy again and again!
Excellent! Helps a lot with my anxiety
I noticed elevated mood and reduced anxiety while using this product.
Have struggled getting to sleep and staying asleep for years, this has helped so well that I sleep so deeply I sometimes cramp from not moving, but wonderful overall. Also noticed better mood, lessened anxiety.
I have fibromyalgia along with undiagnosed autoimmune conditions. I can sleep through out the day but be up all night no matter what I do. I had read that this product would be good for sleeping and relaxing seeing it is no longer something I do easily on my own. This product has helped me to sleep through the night better along with reducing the anxiety I was beginning to feel.
Seems to work well. Have taken for a week and feel it has help me eat less and helped with anxiety.
It's best to be taken with food to avoid upset stomach
Very glad I tried this product for depression and anxiety. It works better than the antidepressants I was on. Its best to start out with the smaller dose and work up to the 200 mg.
Love this product. I'm experiencing less anxiety, I have more energy, and I sleep better at night.
I suffer from anxiety and depression due to hypothyroidism. Since taking this product, I have noticed my anxiety and depression symptoms have greatly improved. As an added bonus, I have also noticed my appetite has been greatly reduced as well. I love this product and have recommended it to several friends to try as well.
I took it after reading reviews that it helps with anxiety. I was having strange breathing habits when I was anxious. Since I’ve started I feel like my anxiety has decreased significantly and I haven’t found myself doing the strange breathing.
After only two days of using this product, I tell a huge difference in my anxiety. Also I noticed a dramatic decrease in my appetite and the urge to snack. Quality product and I would recommend this to anyone fighting overeating or anxiety.
It gmhas lowered my depression helped with anxiety and I'm sleeping better
I have suffered from debilitating anxiety for the last 15 years. I've tried prescription antidepressants with no relief. In fact they made things worse due to the horrible side effects. 5-HTP has been a huge help in managing my anxiety and improving my quality of sleep. I'm more relaxed and can better focus on tasks in front of me. I will definitely continue using this product.
I have some anxiety and trouble sleeping. I have noticed since taking this that I have been much calmer and sleeping better.
This supplement is amazing! I initially purchased it for the appetite curbing feature, and that's the one feature I actually notice the least. The mood support is truly amazing. I've stopped taking my prescribed anxiety medication (under the care of my doctor of course). Even my coworkers notice my mood is "lighter". Truly a great supplement and I've been taking it now for 3 months.
Bought this to improve anxiety and mood. So far the only thing I have really noticed is that my joints hurt a lot less. I would not have expected that, but it has changed enough to be very noticeable. I will keep taking and see if I notice an improvement in mood.
This product is awesome. Helps you sleep thru the night, helps with anxiety and keeps you calm and also helps with appetite control. Definitely will be purchasing again.
I have been taking 5htp for about a year and a half now. I have tried several different brands. I have to say that this has been the best result! I take this supplement for anxiety/depression but it also has weight management benefits. Love this product!
I was struggling with anxiety, exhaustion, frustration and mild depression. Within the first few days of taking this product I started noticing my mood improve. I feel more energetic, focused and confident. I still struggle with anxiety, but it definitely decreased since taking this product.
Helps take the edge off, I feel more calm but not sleepy. Mild anxiety is gone.
My doctor recommended this supplement, and it has worked wonders! It has really helped with decreasing my anxiety and with appetite control. It took about 2 weeks to really feel a different. WIN WIN!
So far, I have felt more relaxed, more calm, and happier! Other supplements I have tried claimed that they were pure, but had no information to back it up. I deal with social anxiety and panic attacks, so trying natural remedies before taking prescriptions is my priority. So far, I have had a more than pleasant experience with this!
It helps with my anxiety and I sleep so much better.
Product kills my appetite. Lost 10 lbs in a week so far. I also feel less anxiety which has helped me improve my mood. I look forward to more. Thank You very much!
Improved emotional stability, cured mood swings & some of the mental effects of PMDD. Improved depression and anxiety.
I've had pretty bad anxiety my whole life, and it got so sever that I went on Zoloft about a year ago. But the side effects - especially the weight gain and high cholesterol, which I never had an issue with before the medicine - made me decide to go off of it. After I fully tapered off of the Zoloft, my anxiety was even worse then before. Then I saw an integrative healthy doctor who recommended naturewise 5HTP. I didn't have very high expectations at first, but I am now a believer. I take one capsule each evening, along with some other helpful supplements like magnesium, vitamin D, and an herbal supplement called Tranquility. I am now virtually anxiety free. But unlike the Zoloft, I'm not emotionally numb. I just feel balanced and calm. I never thought that an over-the-counter supplement would be able to benefit me so dramatically. I feel better than I've ever felt. I wish I had found this product years ago.
I suffer from Chronic Treatment Resistant Migraines so I have a lot of issues with sleeping and depression. This supplement has helped tremendously in being able to handle stress and anxiety. Additionally, because of this I have more control over making healthier decisions with health.
I took this to help with anxiety, and sleep. I feel like my anxiety is A LOT more controlled. I don’t have nearly as many anxiety attacks, and have been able to cut down to 1
At first it made me feel a little weird but after a few days I felt like my old self again. I was calmer and have not had an anxiety attacks at all. I am so glad I found this product. I would recommend this to anyone with anxiety or depression issues before reaching for anything prescription wise.
Helps just as well as prescription meds I have been on without all the side effects.
On the recommendation of a previous reviewer, I take it with green tea extract pills or green tea. It is very effective. Anxiety is down, sleep came returned to me, and overall mood has improved significantly. Will continue using.
Out of all the 5-HTP supplements I've tried this one seemed to be of very high quality. I experienced an improved mood and less anxiety after about a week of taking it. NatureWise seems to have high quality products all around!
I am constantly researching different supplements for insomnia, anxiety/depression, and appetite suppressants. I've ordered a couple of products in the past from NatureWise and loved them so I knew this had to do something for me. The first day, I took one in the evening couple hours dinner. I noticed I didn't have much of a appetite..I don't know if it's possible for it to work that soon but it seemed to be..that evening I was able to relax and have fun with my husband and one year old son...this is going to sound so corny but whatever...I haven't felt such a sense of peace and happiness in a long time...the energy was just right, not overbearing..by the time it was time to go to bed, I had no desire to stay up late binge eating, I just wanted to go to sleep and that I did...
I have been taking 5HTP for nearly a month now. My mood is much better! My anxiety and my anger are much better. I overall feel like a better, happier, healthier person. I have been having some crazy dreams since starting it, not bad ones just very vivid! I overall love this product and give it 5 stars!
It’s mt first day of taking this product i love it.
I suffer from significant depression, severe anxiety and complex PTSD. This product has changed my life even in the short (less than 30 days) time I've used it. Typically on my charts lists the little phrase "treatment resistant" which means the numerous medications I've tried just simply do not work for me but this, this worked for me from day one and got better with every use! My husband and I both notice when I forget to take it. I must take this at night before bed because I do tend to get a stomach ache but nothing when I take it at night. Love love love!
This has COMPLETELY alleviated anxiety that was before only treatable with Zoloft. Amazing product, life saver. I can not mention enough how this can completely change your anxiety with ZERO of the negative side effects of Zoloft and other SSRI meds
Have been taking this for a little under a month and have seen a great change in my mood, will continue to take this!
Great for mood anxiety and appitite
I have tried this brand, and NOW foods in 100mg. I noticed that this brand works better in terms of falling asleep faster. Taking the 5HTP combined with another supplement has hugely benefited my mood and my insomnia. Before taking, I was struggling with postpartum and mild anxiety/stress. Be careful though, some people suffer from too much seratonin production and taking 5HTP could worsen symptoms. I started this because my Doctor put me on it. I have not noticed any difference in appetite, as I have always had a healthy appetite and eat well.
Amazing product for those who feel anxiety stress disorder do not sleep at night this product works incredible. Not addictive.
I love this product! It has helped my anxiety and is really an answer to prayer.
This stuff has made such a difference in my life. I struggle with anxiety and this has helped me so much since I didn’t want to go down the medication route before trying herbal! I’m so glad I did! I researched it and also recommended this to my sisters husband who hasn’t been struggling with depression so terribly that iit was affecting their marriage to the point of separation. He refused to see a doctor and didn’t see where anything was wrong. I sent this to them and she asked him to try it not really thinking anything would come of it. Guys through the power of prayer and this supplement he has become himself agian and there’s marriage is healing! It also helps with sleep and supposed to help with hunger ( I’m low carb so I can’t speak on that since I don’t have a lot of hunger anyways) thanks so much for such a great product.
A friend of mine recommended 5-HTP Plus+. I have been taking it almost a month now and I can tell a real difference in my sleep and mood. I can fall back asleep easier and faster than before. With small children, this is one of the best aspects for me as I get little sleep. As for my mood, I found my anxiety and stress were a little easier to handle. I would recommend this to anyone and not just because I am receiving my second bottle for free from Naturewise. I wouldn't recommend anything I didn't like or use. So far, 5-HTP Plus+ does what it says it will do. I highly recommend this to anyone.
I started taking this product after coming off a SSRI medication and it helps with mood and reduction in anxiety as well as decreasing withdrawal effects of SSRI medication.
I have fibromialgia, lupus, depression a anxiety disorder. This pills really works Im in good mood after 15 days takings this pills and my insomia gets better too. after i get this pills my anxiety was out of control, i get 10 pounds in this process, and after taking the pills my anxiety related to the food gets better in 70%. Finally i can say this product is really good and works for me.
Very good supplement, helps with anxiety and better night sleep
I have struggled with depression for 8 years and decided to stop taking prescription medication for it a year and a half ago. I didn't like the side effects it had. I've been dealing with depression more lately and decided to try the 5htp. It has really improved my mood a lot. I'm not as upset, my anxiety is less, I'm not as angry or as snappy with my kids, and I sleep much better at night. No negative sides effects that I've seen!
I received yesterday. I took one and wow what a difference. I tried everything to get rid of my anxiety. And nothing worked. But this made me feel happy again. I have social anxiety. Not anymore wow. I wish I could take two a day.. will purchase again..
I had trouble sleeping and I used to take Zoloft for my depression and anxiety but it made me gain weight so I stopped taking it. I started taking this to help with all that and so far I’ve noticed a big difference. I’m definitely a lot calmer and my depression has gotten easier to deal with. I’m hoping after a couple more weeks it will even get better.
I have suffered from depression and anxiety from childhood trauma for YEARS. Lately I have been trying to lose weight but have been plagued with emotional eating from the first day I started taking it
This supplement is greatly helping me manage every day anxiety. I take it with food to prevent tummy trouble and then let it do it's job keeping me calm, cool and collected. ;)
I've been taking this for 2 months and have noticed a huge difference with my anxiety.
I am an alcoholic in recovery. I take 5-HTP from Naturewise for its bioavailability. It helps replenish my serotonin supply thereby reducing anxiety and depression from post-acute withdrawals.
This product changed my quality of life! Helped my mood and anxiety. I like that it's time release. I take this 2x a day! No side effects. Love it!
I think that this 5-HTP Plus 200 mg works well. It helps me sleep. It is also supposed to help with anxiety so I prefer this over melatonin.
Great product. Love that it is time release.
5-HTP has helped me reduce my anxiety, I feel more calm on a daily basis now it also aids in sleeping. I get a full eight hours of sleep every night with this product. And a bonus is appetite control I eat less during the day so since I’ve been taking yet I’ve lost a few pounds without even trying! I love this product I have just added to my daily vitamin routine and I will take it forever!
This is my second bottle and it has helped with my anxiety. I rest better at night too and I don’t stress eat either so I have lost some weight
Awesome for anxiety, haven't had a panic attack since I started taking one of these a day!
I've been taking this product for over a month and I think it's really helped my overall mood. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I think it helps with the depression. Sleep and anxiety still seem to battle each other a bit, but it's important to remember these kind of products work differently for everyone. I loved the promotion to receive a free bottle. Will continue to use this product.
I suffer from anxiety and this, along with L-Theanine, seems to help a lot. It doesn't make it all go away, but I can go about my day to day.
Was suffering from poor sleeping patterns related to stress and anxiety related to an out of state move and a combined home renovation. Just too much going on and was also feeling run down and lethargic. I take a multi vitamin and B-complex supplement and added 5_HTP Plus+ to my daily intake. After about 10 days I've noticed a difference - sleeping patterns are becoming more regular, and my anxiety is better managed. I believe this supplement is helping.
I was having a lot of anxiety and trouble sleeping. This product calms my mind so that I fall asleep much easier.
I was a little skeptical about this, but had been reccomended this as a supplement to help with anxiety and stress in a natural way. I am a little picky about the supplements that I take, and was highly impressed with this quality and effectiveness of this product. I am already planning to order more naturewise products, including this 5-HTP Plus very soon in the future!
I've been taking 5-htp intermittently now for a couple of years. It really helps with the winter blues and takes the edge off of anxiety. I recently started with stomach problems and saw that this brand may be easier on the stomach. Plus I like that it has the B vitamin in it. I stopped my other brand and started taking this and felt the difference in days. I'm going to stick with this brand.
I have been using this to help treat my anxiety and depression and so far I feel like it is working. It arrrived on time and is well packaged.
Works wonderfully! Improves my mood and makes my anxiety a little less sharp. Evens everything out, so to speak. Only drawbacks is some stomach upset if I don't take it with a big enough meal.
Wonderful product that works quite well for anxiety and depression issues.
I have transitioned off of my prescription anxiety medications with the help of this! I take it now at night along with my magnesium supplement and sleep well. My anxiety and irritability have significantly reduced even more than it did with my Lexapro!
Helps with mood swings, anxiety, and if you have mild depression. Also curbs appetite.
Purchased for college son who has issues with anxiety and sleep. This makes him feel calmer and get deeper sleep and we like that it's a natural alternative to prescription anti-anxiety.
Amazing product!! Helps with my fibromyalgia and anxiety!! Take one every morning
I believe this product is helping with my anxiety and depression. My friend recommended it to me. I will continue taking this product
I’ve noticed a positive change in my all around mood and less anxiety throughout the day
I struggle with anxiety. I was on Zoloft and i wanted something more natural so i switched to this product. So far I’m really liking it!
I've struggled with anxiety, depression, and insomnia for as long as I can remember. I've gone the pharmaceutical route, but wanted to try something natural. Since taking your product nearly a month ago, I've noticed a significant reduction in my anxiety as well as a massive boost in my mood and ability to sleep at night (without waking). I don't believe in miracle products, but this is as close to it as I've found. I'm incredibly happy with my purchase and the results.
My main reason for taking this was to find an alternative to prescription medications. I suffer from depression and anxiety. I could instantly feel a difference when taking this also super bonus is the curbing of your appetite. I am excited to try some of the other products that are offered.
After having a horrible reaction to Zoloft (cystic acne everywhere!) while being on it for only one month, I had to find something quickly to help me while I was going off of it. I started on NatureWise 5-HTP Plus the very day I stopped my daily 50mg of Zoloft, and I am literally happy to say that I have been stable and have not had one symptom of depression, anxiety or panic attacks. I have been on the 5-HTP Plus (twice a day) for over two weeks and am upbeat, energized, sleeping well and feeling like my old self again. Since I am dealing with peri-menopause, I also (one week later) started taking a supplement "DrFormulas Menopause Supplements for Relief, Support and Weight Loss" in addition for hot flashes and night sweats, which also might be helping my mood, but the 5-HTP Plus, in my opinion, is the main reason I am doing so well mentally and emotionally. I will not be going back on any prescription mood stabilizer, and can't recommend this supplement enough. Be certain to follow directions and take it with food.
I have a little bit of anxiety, was put on antidepressants, those did more harm than good, after deciding to be taken off those for good, I came across this on amazon, and decided to give this a shot. It surely helps me stay calm, helps me sleep, keeps my appetite balanced, and I just overall feel better, plus there aren't any negative side effects as with antidepressants.
I've been dealing with increasing anxiety, especially when driving or riding in a vehicle on freeways ... in less than 30 days I'm feeling so much better and have been able to get back into my normal travel routine. Excellent product!! Highly recommend.
I really liked the way this product worked. I could feel a difference right away. It has been almost a month now and I can tell I have a lot less panic attacks. It has stabilized mood too. I will buy it again. I am trying to avoid pharmaceuticals and this really does help a lot.
Wow! I'm truly amazed how quickly I began to feel the calming effects. This definitely lessens my stress and anxiety and helps me have a more positive outlook on the day. I feel less overwhelmed by daily tasks and can focus much better on my work. Total mood enhancer!
I've been taking 5HTP for a while now and it's really helped me overcome a lot of anxiety during my more stressful weeks during the year. Be aware that this is 200mg. I typically take half in the mornig and the other half during the day. NatureWise is a great deal and I definitely continue to buy more!
Dare I say, this stuff really works? I do. It really works. After almost a decade of seeking treatment for both depression and anxiety, I completely stopped taking medication (Lexapro, Paxil, Wellbutrin, Seroquil... the list goes on) in 2014. The last two years, I've forced myself to work out and eat healthier, but still struggled tremendously and experienced some of the worse symptoms in my adult life (including a complete collapse of my sobriety). I found out about this product about six weeks ago and immediately ordered it.
I have been taking different brands of 5HTP for awhile. This is hands down the best brand, product and dosage of them all! I have been consistently taking this for about a month now and have significantly noticed my mood has improved, and it helps keep anxiety at bay.
Have been taking this for two weeks now and wow! My anxiety level and mood have improved tremendously! I take it before bed and I find that I am sleeping soundly through the night. I started taking this the same time I also started taking Change O Life by Nature's Way. So could be a combo of the two, but feel like a new person!
I have had periods of insomnia for years. (Who hasn't had occasionally) Lately, my stress and anxiety levels had shot way up. Insomnia was worsening. My average nights' sleep was fewer than 3 hours per night. I tried all the usual ways: meditation. Melatonin to sleep. Nothing worked. If got so bad I was unable to drive or even manage the minimum activities of daily living. I lived in my pajamas. Then I told my son. He recommended I try 5-HTP for the anxiety, stress. He said it could even help insomnia. By the time I tried this, I was suffering stress angina every day. I hadn't had an angina attack in several years. I started by taking one tablet per day. Barely helped. I took one and one-half tablet per day. Helped, but not enough. I did research and found studies said for anxiety, can take up to 400 mg. I then started taking 2 tablets per day. Success. I just awoke, having slept for over 6 hours. I have been driving again. My anxiety is greatly lessened. My angina, also. PLEASE NOTE: I do not in any way, shape or form recommend taking 5HTP for angina. Mine is stress angina. I still plan to see my physician about it. I have been charting symptoms. With ObamaCare still in effect, for now, I cannot afford doctors as I once did.
I buy this for both myself and my mom. It helps with anxiety.
After trying several products for anxiety, I've found this works at providing a sense of calm that lasts throughout the day. Anxiety is a scary thing when you've never lived with it (mine is due to a short-term issue), so I feel for those who deal with this condition on a regular basis. Like many others, I've also found it to act as an appetite suppressant.
I am the biggest advocate of 5HTP. I have PTSD and a stressful job and 5HTP really helps me manage my depression and stress better than the SSRIs I was prescribed years ago. The time release is ideal, and I find this supplement helps with insomnia and anxiety additionally. Sometimes gives me vivid dreams as well. As with any supplement, make sure you check for drug interactions- you can't take 5HTP if you are already on an SSRI like Prozac, Zoloft, etc.
I have suffered from anxiety and depression for years and 5-HTP really does help. After about a week I noticed better sleep and just in general feeling less stressed. I will warn that the first week also is a little hard on my stomach but I've taken all different brands and that's always to be expected. Felt slightly bloated in the morning but it goes away after a few days. Delivery was quick and the price is low, I'm a repeat customer and will continue ordering this product.
It takes about a month to kick in. Just about as strong as the prescription stuff, minus the nasties (side effects etc).
I kid you not, this stuff is great. I really thought the all natural route would be silly to try and not work but i like this a lot. I use it in combination with PMS support, and it really helps keep the crying and the other mood swings at bay. I feel much better when i have this. but i will say its best to take all the time rather than just starting a few days prior to your period and a few days after, its just more effictive if you take it all the time. but if you forget often its ok, it still works. I love it. better than Zoloft!
Time release works so well to give you a sense of calm throughout the day. My teenage daughter takes this to help with anxiety and concentration. This along with a few other supplements have kept her off prescription medications, and that's just great! It wasn't easy for me to find a good time release tablet, so this one will certainly get my praise. If you want help with sleeping at night then I'd recommend one with a quick release.
I normally have a little bit of anxiety and this seems to be helping. I've been taking it every morning for a week now and I've noticed that situations where I would usually start to get anxious aren't so intimidating anymore and I am able to deal with them in a more rational manner. I'm not sure if it's just because I am more aware or if it's actually because of the medication but I will continue to use this product because I feel that it is helpful
I really had my doubts about this product....but it actually does work. I take 400 mg. in the evenings after a stressful day at work and have noticed a definite change in my mood and anxiety level.
I was skeptical when I ordered these but am so pleased with the results and would order again. I am sleeping much more sound and don't wake up with the "hang-over effect" that other medications have given me. In addition, I do feel that they have helped with my anxiety and constant fidgeting, but haven't clouded my thought processes.
My twelve year old son, has had very bad insomnia due to anxiety. No sleep aid helped for very long. Essential oils helped very little. Breathing exercises only got him so far. He's been taking one pill at 7 pm, for two weeks, and by bedtime he's relaxed and has been going to sleep without any fears or worries and sleeping through the night. He's had less and less meltdowns since taking it. In general he seems to be happy and feeling great. Fingers crossed this will continue to work and get him through this anxiety.
Excellent product. My doctor just recommended time released 5-HTP to me again for help with anxiety and depression.
I am a 25 year old college student and I came across this supplement online after searching for natural ways to boost my mood and to relieve my stress, anxiety, and slight depression. I didn't want to get on anti-depressants or anxiety medication because a prescription drug is what caused these symptoms in the first place (Finasteride, also known as propecia or proscar) but that is another story for another day, and if you are on it, I can't recommend enough that you wean yourself off it immediately.
This is a great product for anxiety and mood stabilizer. Please know that you are sick, you cannot take any cold medicine other than homeopathic or you could have serious side affects according to my doctor. No Nyquil, Sudafed, Mucinex, etc. Check with your doctor first, especially if you have a child taking the product. Also sleep aids can block the positive affects of this product.
There is a GOD!! I am not sure what made me look into vitamins for depression. Whatever it was I came across this wonderful product. I purchased it from my local Vitamin Shoppe and boy have I been lucky. Its not that you will notice a big change in the way you feel, its more or so that you will realize a limited amount of terrible days(moddiness, etc). I have suffered from depression and anxiety all of my life. I took prescription drugs while I was younger. I was on so many highs and lows with prescriptions(happy, sad, crying spells). This product seems to keep you NORMAL?? That's the only way that I can describe it I take many other vitamins for different reasons but I am so glad that I came across this product. I recommend this for others who have a huge problem with being frieghtened/fearful(anxiety) along with moodiness, and a distaste for this world(depression)...
I'll be taking this the rest of my life! Wonderful stuff that is a drug free plan to beat depression and anxiety.
I struggle with extremely high anxiety and insomnia. I've been taking these for 2 weeks now along with my St.Johns Wort and have noticed a huge improvement in my anxiety. Has not helped my insomnia, but I have lost 5 pounds so far. I don't have much of an appetite taking these... total bonus!
Finally getting off Lexapro for good. This is fantastic for my Anxiety Disorder. I have been prescription free since I started taking it 3 months ago and I feel better than I have felt in years. Honestly. Hope it works this well for everyone.
I had been looking for something natural and OTC to help curb my PMS symptoms and in doing some research, I came across 5-htp as a solution. I tried a couple different brands but they caused me to be really scatterbrained. I came across this time release version. The price was right and the reviews were good so I gave it a shot. I've taken them for over a month now and I have to say that they definitely have helped! I've been a lot more laid back, my anxiety is not near as bad, and I've been a nicer person in general. It has been a relief to not have to feel so icky. I will definitely continue to buy this product and would highly recommend to anyone with mild anxiety and/or PMS.
I came to this as a last resort because I don’t want to take medication for my anxiety. It definitely takes the edge off and helps me think more clearly. The anxiety isn’t gone completely but it helps make it more manageable.
Helped me feel normal after years of struggling with depression anxiety and feeling like I couldnt be myself again. I decided to try it. Its a life changer no doubt. I did notice a difference and I for sure know it was not a placebo.
5-HTP is a miracle to prevent and cure and protect against neurotoxcicity for a specific "hangover." (Not alcohol.) If something you take tends to be the most amazing thing ever but then you feel completely apathetic and dead the several days after then that is merely because your brain used more serotonin at once than normally. This is not dangerous or brain damage it merely means you need pre-cursors to serotonin the day before you party, a couple while partying, and most importantly take several a day after partying for up to a week.. You will IMMEDIATELY notice the great difference. The 5-HTP added seems to out serotonin back in and kept it stable until your brain made its own again. This is a wonderful supplement. It is also good for insomnia and depression and anxiety. It is like what turkey and chocolate have to cause drowsiness. I highly recommend 5-HTP instead of SSRIs and some sleep meds. However it does not work better than Benzos for anxiety and panic attacks so always keep those on hand if needed.
Has helped with anxiety
Was addicted to *Big Pharma* (diff meds for depression) for 13 longgg years when I decided the side effects and half-working werent worth it anymore. Did research on more natural, healthier alternatives for fixing my depression and alot of websites mentioned this 5-htp. Tried it at 100mg and INSTANTLY felt a lift. Decided then and there to stop the ridiculousness of the ups/downs I had been experiencing on the prescribed pills, and went cold-turkey off them. DONT RECOMMEND THAT but with alot of prayer, consuming lots of natural protein, and bananas (a wonderful seratonin builder) I did it!! Been *pharma-free* for 3 weeks now and wow soooooo glad and more alive feeling!! Have found, however, that am needing to up my mg so will try the 200mg and see how that does. All in all, I have been doing the 100mg, 4x a day and depression hardly there AT ALL, anxiety gone, and appetite controlled once again!!( gained 75# on Effexor). I DEF RECOMMEND this pill!! Also, I found a book on the subject and it helped guide me through. LV LV LV my new life!! :) As an update (now 3 months later) I have switched over to the XR 100 mg and still going great!! I have found that the XR has less side effects that occur sometimes with the regular pills (mainly nausea and sleepiness). Still, depression is a thing of the PAST thx to 5-htp!! :) I STILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN!!
I started taking this to help ween myself off wellbutrin ( which did nothing for me btw). I take everynight before bed. It has helped with anxiety and how I deal with stress. I recently threw a party for 60 people where both the caterer and baker messed up the food . I was extremly calm and did not panic at all . This would not have been the case a few months ago. I may of even been a little to chill lol. As far as sleep goes. It definitly helps, however the dreams are very frequent and vivid. It has done nothing to supress my appetite but i didnt really get it for that. I started giving it to husband as well who has an extremely high stress job. He has only been taking it about 2 weeks , definite mood change and is dreaming and rembering his dreams where he never did before. Im also not tired during the day like some reviews mention. I seem to have a good amount of energy. I have ordered a second bottle.
These have helped me control my anxiety and stress levels! I take1pill along with 1 evening primrose oil pill and in about two weeks i wasn't having horrible anxiety like i was before. Even when it came to that time of the month when i usually have bad mood changes, i didn't have any. It has changed me in so many great ways! I have ordered 3 bottles already and my mom takes them as well to help with hers.
I have been looking for alternatives to help with anxiety and sleep and this is great and helps take the edge off.
I have been taking Natrol 5 HTP time release 200 mg for about 6 months now. I like it and have had no negative side effects. I was taking it for anxiety especially in the morning and just for a general mood lifter. Honestly I didn't release how well it was working. I ran out and decided I was doing great and didn't really need it anymore and thought I would use 100mg and try that for awhile since I had some of that in my cabinet left over from before. I for the last week or so have not felt the same. Anxiety in the morning has increased and now just in general not in a great mood and don't even know why. I couldn't figure it out, then tonight I realized the only think that I have changed supplement wise is this is missing! I placed another order tonight! I will not be without this again. The 200 mg really works for me and I now see how important it is and how much it helps me! Also, I love the time release part of it! I would highly recommend trying this one!
Has helped reduce my anxiety and manage mood swings under stress. Only take one in AM. Take a non-time release 100 mg dose at bedtime.
I tried a prescription anxiety medicine but it made me dizzy and more anxious and cost a lot. I saw the reviews for this one and thought I would give it a try instead of trying a different prescription. It works so much better! I am so happy that I am able to take something that is more natural and works!
This is a life saver. I literally could not stop going to toilet in the mornings before work. My anxiety has got worse since in peri menopause.The same day I took my first small tablet I could tell the difference. I take after breakfast (my breakfast consist of a small piece of fruit or boiled egg). I've only been taking the 5htp for 4 days now. I even have energy and not really as hungry as I use to be. I was not paid to add my comment, although I would love a free bottle? For me this is a miracle in a bottle. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!
definitely made me a lot calmer and help with anxiety
I call these happy pills because they improve my mood and anxiety as much as a prescription drug.
First tried because my relative gave me a month's supply. She claimed to have felt better within a few days of starting to take these. I myself had the same results, I felt happier and more energized, my anxiety levels went down (anxiety that I didn't even realize was there), I was able to sleep easily and feel rested. I noticed a huge improvement on my eating impulse, I was no longer craving sweets uncontrollably and was calm enough to make better choices with meals and with life! I'm very happy I tried this product.
lifetime of sever depression,years ago told have rapid/mixed bipolar 2,anxiety disorder ,BPD ,D.I.D.I talk to troubled teens,vollunteer NA support at home.RX treatment cant be it,working to spread herbs,natural ways amongst any mental health grp and hopefully something positive will come,no one knows mental anguish as much as those who live it.. no issues,first time trying 5-htp so after time and comparing natrol might be my buyer for several items if other samples from buyers/items but ill update after receiving mix samples from others..n manic state so sry for msg
My doctor recommended 5-HTP for my slight depression and anxiety as I refuse to take pharmaceuticals. I have definitely noticed a lift in my mood on the days I take it and I'm pretty sure my family has as well. The only thing I dislike is that I seem to feel a little more tired when I take it. I might start taking it before bed but since it's time released, I'm not sure that would help.
I have very severe Anxiety and depression and I was able to get off SSRI anti depression pills and use this! This stuff works even better and I have zero side affects. It changed my life for the better and I have been recommending and telling people about it. I've been taking one or some days two at night and have felt so much better. It's amazing how fast this stuff works! Ive been on this product for about 3 months now and it's been just awesome and family and friends say I seem so much more cheerful and energetic. Taking this product has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my 29 years of life and will continue taking it for the rest of my life.
I take this with kava kava and it has helped my anxiety and overall peacefulness tremendously. I've tried 5-HTP before with no results. This brand plus their kava kava, however, have done the trick.
I have a daughter who suffers (suffered) from severe anxiety after a bullying incident. We were leery about putting her on prescribed medication. I researched endless and found this. I have to say, it has changed her life and ours too.
Love this has drastically improved my girlfriends mood. She has bipolar and high anxiety this disorder, with this stuff it helps make that go away. I can finally see her smile again. Thank you Natrol !
My partner and I have varying types of anxiety, his more debilitating than my own at times. He had been on prescription medications before such as Ativan and others and had recently been prescribed Xanax. We also have tried other means of reducing anxiety such as various relaxing teas (Damiana, Puuka Relax, Licorice) all of which work very well but he still needed something else. We saw a lot of reviews for this product and decided it was worth trying.
This supplement has really helped me a lot. I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia and my doctor wanted to give me an antidepressant. I tried it for two days and felt like a crazy person, so I stopped. I do not suffer from depression, but some antidepressants work for some people with fibro. Upon researching how to boost serotonin levels naturally, I came upon 5-HTP and ordered this. I am now on my second bottle of it because I feel so much better! My appetite is suppressed, I am not craving sugar as much, my monthly cycle started and I was actually surprised because I usually have horrible PMS and I did not have any symptoms at all, my anxiety is better, and my sleep is better.
This product has definitely helped me with depression. I use to get it at a vitamin store for alot more money than what Amazon is selling it for, at least 11 dollars less. If you really are suffering with mood disorder and depression, you should give it a try. I started out with the 50 mg time release tabs and worked myself up to 150. From my research you can take a very high dose of this safely. I actually preferred this over prescription meds. I have noticed myself to be more calm and able ti handle stressful situations better. I have not experienced any side effects that I've heard of either.
I was diagnosed with depression as well as generalized anxiety disorder with social anxiety and while this hasn't helped much for social anxiety at this point, its been a wonderful thing for depression.
For the past 8 years since I was 14, I have been on more than one medication for anxiety disorder and severe depression. Last month my doctor put me on a new medication since Prozac stopped working for me. It was a nightmare. I had awful side-effects like nose bleeds, bruising, vivid dreams, and I had many sad moments. 4 weeks into them and I wasn't seeing myself getting better. I got off them after I had a breakdown and I spoke with my doctor that I was going to go the natural route because I really am tired of medications.
Since weaning off my SSRI and taking 5htp starting at 50mg, I now take 200mg before bed and I've found a significant change for the better. I sleep better and have more energy during the day. My anxiety and depression is not as bad as it was when I first began 5htp. Will be buying again.
these work very well. Took away my anxiety. the price is also pretty good. i will buy again.
I have been going through a very stressful time in my life...I basically lost everything this past year. My doctor tried to medicate me but I don't like taking prescription drugs as in the past the side effects just weren't worth it. I didn't want to be a zombie again. One day a friend suggested this to me so I thought I would give it a try. I am on my 2nd bottle now and have seen significant improvements. My anxiety issues have gotten better, I am worrying less, my mood has improved greatly overall, and I have been able to sleep much better. I'm actually a happy person now which I haven't been in a very long time. It's pretty awesome.
I use HTP-5 to help reduce stress, depression, anxiety. I've been taking it for almost 1 year now. It works well, with L-dopa Mucina - by now now foods. If you can not afford both. Go with the L-dopa by now foods. It works well for all the symptoms I mention above.
Makes me feel a whole lot better. I still feel my body react to anxiety, but couldn't feel the emotion of anxiety. It was pretty weird at first but easily adapted to it. I also put it to the test as I do cry like a beach sometimes. But using this medication, it prevents me from crying which is surprising and amazing.
I love this product so far.I have bruxism and grind my teeth usually every night. For the past 6 nights since I have been using this product, I stopped grinding my teeth. How do I know? Because I asked my wife. This alone deserves a 5-star review from me. I notice that my anxiety has been reduced but not completely. My mood is much better than before and I don't think it placebo. I like what the pills have done for me thus far and hopefully the effect doesn't wear off overtime. Finger crossed!
We have found Natrol 5-HTP (200 mg) Time Release to be incredibly helpful with mild depression, insomnia, and anxiety. I first read about Natrol in the book, The Chemistry of Joy, which was required reading for the University of Minnesota's Center for Spirituality and Healing course titled the Art of Healing. The book mentioned that 5-HTP may help to increase serotonin levels as well as aid in sleep and relaxation. It didn't go into great detail on Natrol's mood enhancement, which we noticed after a few days. One thing that the book definitely didn't specify about Natrol was the frequent dreams which depending on the consumer might be a positive or a negative. We both happen to appreciate the dreams and think that is what aids in the positive outlook; however, the better attitude may simply be due to a full night's sleep.
I bought this primarily to help with my anxiety and my insomnia. I have severe depression and moderate to severe anxiety. Functioning is hard some days. I have anxiety attacks when I'm riding in a car, ever since I nearly died in a car accident in 2010, but taking this every day made the anxiety a little more tolerable. Sleep also came easier. It might not work for everyone, but this dosage worked for me.
I read about Natrol 5Htp in a book called Nautral remeidies for sickness,of one kind or another,reading upon different supplements for different iilments.Anxiety is what I looked at because sometimes I have a anxiety attack or a panic attack.So I wanted something to help get rid of that,which was natural.After reading a list of nautral supplements which all may help ,I choose this one because its sold over the counter at Rite Aid drug store.They didnt sell the 50mg only the 100 mg.So I went and picked up a bottle the next day.I only have these panic or anxeity attacks when I get to shcool,college,which it hasnt been that bad,but never the less its their.Any way,first I took these as recommemened up to 2 times daily with a meal.I noticed a change in my appetite,I was full faster than usal and eat maybe 3 times a day now because it controls your appetite.But I still hadn't noticed any change in mood,until I took the second pill,which sort of seemed to had put me in happeir mood,but I wasn't sure,and then doubted that it worked and ordered something else.I change the way I took these and took one late last night,and sure enough I felt better,happeir,I had a happy feeling,I was in a good mood.I wasn't high, its all natural,but the natural stuff in it,does put you in a good mood.Its not like drugs ,your not going to be high with red eyes,or on cloud 9, which I have never taken before(drugs), but for those who may be scared of those effects or for those who may see it as a way to increase their abuse of drugs,but you will feel more joyful.I recomemend this for any one looking to have a good apeptite and a better mood.By the way I took one this morning so,I will take one at night before bed and one when I get up after breakfest.I still don't know for sure if my panic attacks or anxeity is erased,but they may not be bad or maybe less,I will see in time and make another reveiew if it does.:)
I took this supplement for about two weeks. During this time, my usually high anxiety subsided and I felt calm and at peace. Unfortunately, this product caused me to have a splitting, nonstop headache. The headache went away 3 days after the last pill I took. I enjoyed the lowered anxiety, but I can't deal with the headache, so I won't be taking it anymore. I would still recommend this product, because chances are it will react differently for others and may not cause headaches.
Helps with Anxiety when used with Pharma GABA
Been taking these for 2 months for a more natural way to treat my MDD (depression) and general anxiety. I've never felt more like my old self before my mental health issues arose. I took prescription medication previously and hated all the adverse effects, but most importantly the price tag. I find with 5-HTP I don't' get a cloudy mind but actually think clearer. The appetite suppressant part is also kinda nice considering most anti-depressants cause weight gain or bloating. I will admit, I still have struggling days, but you can't expect any supplement or drug to eliminate the issues completely. I prefer this over SAM-E because with SAM-E I end up feeling tired all day, which then makes me lazy, which then makes me more depressed.
I used to wake up every morning with really bad anxiety. I don't experience that anymore with this product. It took the butterflies away and I can actually RELAX. Debilitating situations before feel manageable now. I do have a better outlook on life. Q
It took a few days to feel a difference but it really did calm me down. I've been dealing with depression for the past 3 years and anxiety all my life. This supplement, taken twice daily, takes the edge off my moods and panics. On bad days It works so well for me that my husband can tell if I've forgotten to take it.
5 HTP is a great product. I used to take it when I had anxiety and now I take it for the mood control. This particular brand is unique because it has time release. I feel the effects longer. Definitely would recommend.
I received these 2 days ago, and already I feel a difference. In the past, I have taken several brands and types of 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐥natural, and over the counter products to help manage my mild anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, including Natrol Day & Night, Hylands Nerve Tonic, L-Theanine, and others.
I am a 29 year old male. I have been using this in conjunction with St.Johns Wort and B Stress Complex Tabs for 2 weeks so far. I have noticed a decrease in my social anxiety. Before I would get very nervous in social situations, going so far as avoiding them altogether or getting there and freezing up. This does not happen any more, I even go to the gym and feel completely comfortable, where as before I was terrified of going to the gym. I will say I have been having very very vivid dreams, nothing considered a nightmare but I am always able to wake up and remember them. I even had one dream where I dreamed I was taking 5-HTP and I knew it caused vivid dreams. Anyways I will post a follow up rating in another few weeks, but I definitely plan on re-ordering and would recommend this product to others.
I have been using this product for a few years now to help with minor anxiety and sleep issues. It is by no means a cure all but it has had very positive effects on both my mood and anxiety.
Really helps with my wife's anxiety. At first she didn't know if it was working. Then her bottle ran out and within 2 days her anxiety was back. She doesn't feel any sense of anxiety while taking this products and recommends it to everyone.
I have been taking this off and on for the last two years. LOVE it! Every year I go through bouts of depression and anxiety (same time every year). This helps get me through these periods, when I would otherwise be so irritable and sad others wouldn't want to be around me. It may not work for everyone, but it certainly has for me. I do notice a decrease in appetite as well. I would recommend this!
This product is a God send. I suffer from anxiety due to menopause and when I found this it changed my life. It helps me to relax and sleep well something that prescription medicine was not able to do for me. I have been telling my friends about it,
I took these for anxiety when they took me off my meds. They work great and I can rely on them when I need them! They helped me sleep AND take care of my anxiety when it is high. GREAT product!
I've been taking 5-HTP time release 200mg once a day for about 5 days now along with L-Theanine 200mg once a day. I take the L-Theanine when I first wake up and I take the 5-HTP after I eat breakfast. I suffer from generalize anxiety disorder and social anxiety along with depression but do not take prescription meds for it. I've tried prescription meds when I was a teenager which seemed to make my anxiety worse and my lows worse. My anxiety and depression typically are manageable and something I just deal with but for the last few months they have been hindering my daily activity. I've gained weight and found myself not leaving the house so I started to research a more natural course of action I could take and that is how I found L-Theanine and 5-HTP. So far I've noticed a change and my anxiety and depression are more manageable. I feel like the longer I take them the better it will get. I am very satistfied with this product and would recommend it. The only side effect I have noticed is I do get some heartburn after I take the 5-HTP but I have found if I increase my water intake that side effect has gone down.
I have been using 5-HTP on and off through the years whenever I go through anxiety episodes or when I want to fix my sleep schedule. Remember! Results are different for everybody, don't see this as a god pill but something that could set you right for when you're feeling down, having anxiety attacks, screwed up sleep schedules you want to fix and for those of you that go to festivals so you don't go 3 days with low serotonin levels. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who happens to meet the criteria!
Great natural remedy for anxiety!
I'm feeling much less stressed and it's the holiday season. Go figure. Hasn't helped with anxiety but that won't stop me from buying another bottle
Has been very helpful with keeping anxiety level way down.
I feel a difference immediately when I take these. I wasn't sure what to expect but I get a rush of well being and calmness within 30 minutes of taking one. I take them in the evening when I get home from work or a couple of hours before going to bed. I often take them on an empty stomach and I've had zero issues with nausea like some of the other reviewers have had. I might try taking them in the morning just to see what happens. I was worried that these pills would stick in my throat because they're not coated, but they're very easy to swallow, and I often have problems swallowing pills so that makes me very happy. A side effect I've really been enjoying is more vivid dreams. I was going through a phase where I wasn't remembering my dreams but whenever I take one of these pills I'm guaranteed to have really vibrant and interesting dreams that I remember really well in the morning. I feel more rested and like I'm getting better quality sleep too. I've had severe anxiety and panic attacks for years and this is the most helpful supplement I've taken to help with that, and I've taken a lot of supplements. It's not as good as xanax for instant relief but it's a good alternative. Another reviewer mentioned that these work best when you take them with caffeine. I'll give that a shot and update this review if anything interesting happens.
It has helped with my anxiety and mood swings. Still have them but not as intense.
I absolutely love this product. i suffer from social anxiety disorder and although it doesn't take away the SAD (i wish it did!), it quiets down the negative thoughts that live in our heads which in turn helps us to have more positive outlook on life (for me thats big). I still have SAD (sucks!) but with 5 HTP, the little things don't bother me anymore. I am on my second bottle and i hope that It can continue to work and build my serotonin levels up. i take one in the morning 200mg and sometimes one at night ( I don't have any sleep issues but if i do take one before bed, i do have more vivid weird sometimes nightmarish dreams (but thats just me). either way, i love it i feel like I am better version of myself. as far as it curbing my appetite ha! I LOVE TO EAT! ( however, i always try to eat healthy to maintain my weight, we will have to wait and see if I lose any weight and i will review again on "curbing appetite". overall I am extremely happy with this product! life can at times (for me all the time) be stressful and I feel that everyone should add 5-htp into there diet. keep in mind this is 200 mg and there are lower doses, like 50 mg (you may want to start with that). me on the other hand, i dove right in and happy i did :)
Definitely works after two weeks. I noticed a reduction in anxiety, less severe panics, and better sleep. Its obviously not a Xanax but great for a natural, non-addictive anxiety treatment.
This supplement has been a miracle for me! I've had trouble sleeping since I entered menopause, and I posted on Facebook to ask my friends for advice. One of my friends suggested 5-htp and I ordered this brand. I took it for a few nights and was delighted by the way it helped me fall asleep and stay that way. I started researching it and decided to take one in the morning as well as evening.
I started taking this for my anxiety and depression. And it really has helped with both of those conditions. I do experience some diarrhea and stomach upset, but these are brief and are manageable. I will order it again.
Wanted to give this a try before starting Lexapro.. i have been sleeping better! This has helped with anxiety and being down. I did have some stomach issues with 200 mg. I stopped a few days and I then split in half and I have not had any more stomach issues. I suggest starting with the 100mg time release in the evening. I will buy 100mg next time. You really should not split a time release for best results.
Good product. Really helped with my anxiety and depression. I take it at night and in the morning I take L-Tyrosine. I take 100mg of 5-HTP with 1000mg L-Tyrosine. Made a WORLD of difference.
This product seems to aid with anxiety and depression. The secret seems to be to remember to take them daily with food.
Doesn't make me feel happy or anything but has helped to stabilize my mood and kinda take the edge off of my anxiety.
I've been taking these for a week (extended release formula). Depression and anxiety run in my family. I was not expecting to even look for results until I'd been taking them for about a month, but I've notived major changes I the first week. My temper a week ago was flaring so out-of-control that I was top-of-my-lungs yelling at my children every day for about 2 weeks and most days prior to that for the past several months. I have not "lost it" at all since the first full day on this supplement. I have not allowed anxiety to overwhelm me at all this week, which is huge for me since I suffer from somewhat debilitating anxiety on a regular basis. Moreover, I've been battling alcohol dependency for over a year. I typically have about 4 drinks daily, but I have not craved the alcohol since starting 5HTP. I've also noticed a significant change in my appetite. I've actually lost 1.5 lbs this week without trying. I'm mad at myself for not trying this product sooner! My only fear is the warning on the bottle about not using the supplement for a prolonged period because it can lead to too much serotonin production. I'm just unsure how safe it really is to continue to use this product for more than a few months at a time.
I have struggled with depression and anxiety for years now. I have taken prescription medications and while they help with anxiety, the side effects are unpleasant. I have tried B vitamins, Omega 3s, and vitamin D and while they are all good for the body, did nothing for my anxiety. These pills really work for me. I could feel a difference as soon as I started them. I have been looking for a natural remedy so as to not go back on prescription medication and these are definitely it.
I bought these at a store about a month ago, I'm at the end of my first bottle. I have pretty bad anxiety problems that have been getting in the way of some things in my life. The past few weeks of taking this, I feel way better. My mood is improved, I'm able to focus on things better with less feelings of anxiety.
It is a little hard to tell what this is actually doing for me, but I do think it's having some effect. I bought this behalf on reading hundreds of reviews after searching for something that would maybe ease depression or anxiety that I was having after my miscarriage. I had also read reviews about it helping with binge eating, which was always a constant battle with me, no matter how healthy I was eating!
Ive been taking one of these a day for a year now. Its changed my life. Totally stabilized any mood swings... I mean of course everyone has bad days but this was a noticeable difference in my overall demeanor during the day. It helps with sleep as well. Ive tried to turn multiple people onto this stuff. I bring it up whenever anyone tells me that they are having problems with anxiety and panic attacks. Who knows, it worked for me (a lot better than Xanax did) maybe it could work for you!
While trying to come off Cymbalta (horrible drug!!) and dealing with painful withdrawal, I read 5-htp helps. I started taking 200mg and it helped some with the brain shocks of Cymbalta withdrawal. I increased my dose to 400mg 1x daily and saw more improvement in withdrawal symptoms. I have been off Cymbalta for over a year now. I have been taking 400mg - 800mg of 5-htp every morning. I have no issues with this supplement and I am doing much better with anxiety, depression, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, and generally feel more relaxed and calm. I only wish this brand offered higher doses or higher pill count so I need less bottles. Overall very happy with the product
For the last few years I have been dealing with some crazy weird anxiety. I smoke weed, and to be very honest that has always helped when my mind starts to attack itself with negative thoughts. I get emails from a company who suggested a 1 Hour Kava root spray (it was an advertisement, but when I looked into it, it seemed to work for a lot of people) and it worked. But only for an hour at a time, and it would numb my tongue. This led me to research more into Kava root and supplements to take instead of the spray. I found what I was looking for and this product was something that people had purchased with Kava regularly. Incredible reviews, so I figured I would try it. That was almost 3 weeks ago and I can honestly say that this stuff has changed my life. I see that some people take them about 2 hours before bed to help with sleep, but I take one after breakfast and it helps me concentrate more, I'm far less anxious (if at all), I sleep better, I wake up feeling better. I have dreams again! Which I feel like it's been years since I can remember my dreams. Everything is just...better. I still smoke, but SO MUCH LESS than I did before. I would highly recommend for anyone who suffers from any sort of depression or anxiety. Even a little help can go so far.
Love it! Definitely feel more relaxed every time I take it! I tend to overthink a lot and have huge anxiety problems but After taking this I felt like it has help a lot with all my stresses!
This stuff works. Helps me not wake up with anxiety issues during night. Often wake up and have trouble sleeping but the anxiety isn't there like before. I quit taking it for awhile before deciding to reorder and could tell a difference within a couple of nights. I have reordered and take it nightly now. Difference isn't day and night but is very noticeable.
I've been taking this for almost 2 months as a general mood-booster. I'm not one to buy into homeopathic gimmicks... this supplement really just works. After this bottle of 200mg time-release, I will switch to a 50mg tablet to take twice a day in order to ween myself off 5-htp. It helps to combat my general anxiety, but I'm building a tolerance to it.
I have been using this for 6+ months now. I tried it for anxiety. I believe it helps tremendously. I can take it anytime of the day and it doesn't make me sleepy at all. I don't have any negative affects if I miss a day or 2. I combine it with L-Lysine. For me this product has been nothing but positive and will continue to use it.
But...after trying this many months ago, then buying a different version elsewhere, I have decided that not only does does 5-htp work to reduce my anxiety and promote sleep, the Natrol time-release formula is noticeably better. So now I'm purchasing this as a subscription even though it's cheaper elsewhere. This confirmed cheapskate skeptic is convinced.
This really worked on my testing anxiety. I have been using it everyday this last semester of nursing school and the results are incredible. Think it will stay in my daily routine.
I'm not really sure how the TR works, but my overall opinion on this product is that I am very pleased. Helped me sleep, and also helped my anxiety
These 5htp tablets are among the best out there. They are effective for anxiety and mood for me as well as easing getting to sleep at night. One thing to keep in mind is that it's not recommended to take more than one of these a day due to the 200 mg dosage. So, if you need the help to sleep but also need daily anxiety support then you will need to take the dose later in the day so that it stretches out the effect until bedtime. Roughly within a twelve hour Window.
I use this for occasional anxiety. It relieves numbness in my limbs after a mild attack. It is a miracle cure for me with no side effects & no actual drugs in them. This is also reasonably priced. I paid $10 through Amazon & at my local Walgreens, for the exact same product, it’s $18!
I can tell it helps with my anxiety. I notice I have went from a 10 to a 4. I like this better than prescriptions.
I use this stuff faithfully - take one at night. It works for me to reduce my anxiety.
Really helps with anxiety. Does offer some appetite suppression. I def notice a calming effect when I take this .
These helped me to sleep and lessened my anxiety. Great product!
My son began taking NATROL 5-HTP when prescription anti-anxiety medications didn't help him. He quit taking all anxiety prescriptions and began taking Natrol 5-HTP. After the first day, he said he felt better than he had in over a year. That was two months ago and they still seem to be working. So far, so good. He buys his at Walmart for about the same price as Amazon.
... so perhaps it is not necessarily a well rounded review. Due to concerns on excessive raise of serotonin levels, i am taking it every other day and just once the day. Since I am taking something else for hormonal balance (which also assist with calming of nerves and placid outlook), I think it is sufficient. I guess in a few more weeks I would know more to make a more competent review. So as far as this week is concerned... I starting saying things like "I am so happy" and "I really don't care about that thing" (to something that would annoy me to no end) more. Trust me that is weird. It is not perfect, as certain ruminating thoughts and work would still bother me (although truly much more on the day that I didnt take it, than on the day that I did). It is NOT easy to swallow to a person like me that has hard time swallowing pills. It is not a capsule it is a tablet type pill and it is round and it is not Aleve small. I have to crush it or split it. Sleeping... I got to tell you, very very sweet, very empowering dreams and very nice dreams. Trust me that is weird. I have the tendency to get nightmares, even when I am dreaming something nice it inevitably ends up being a nightmare. It says something about appetite but I have not seen that being reduced to tell the truth. Less anxiety when I do take it. I have notice that and that is great. Positive outlook for sure. Good so far. I suggest to try with the lesser amount first just in case it doesn't work for you, but as for me, once I am done with these (and I keep getting great results) I am getting the bigger bottle. I may move to two days yes and one day no.
This is a great medication for various anxiety disorders! I can't take the addictive anti anxiety meds so I tried this instead, and it works great! It helps me get to sleep at night and helps lower the severity of mild panic attacks.
This really helps me feel less negative. It helps me feel more calmed down. Some say that it makes them sleepy, which makes sense, but that hasn't been the case for me. I often suffer from anxiety that keeps me on edge, and taking this really helps more than anything else. Honestly, works about as well as a Xanax, except this lasts longer.
i have been taking this for almost two weeks and my anxiety definitely feels more under control. Also noticed i haven't been as hungry and actually getting a good nights rest. 10/10 would recommend and buy again.
I was on 50mg of Zoloft, 74mg of Wellbutrin, but didn't really want to be dependent on these medications forever. So I've been trying this as a more natural alternative. For the last few weeks, my husband has said that I seem happier and have a lot less stress. The only downside to this versus those prescriptions is that this doesn't build up in your system, so you need to make sure you take it perfectly every day (if you're like me and have chronic depression/anxiety issues) or you'll start to have the dark feelings creep back quickly once it's out of your system. Btw, this brand is AMAZING...so cheap and effective. I use their brand of melatonin too.
just as the bottle says, TR option is nice! This has been known to help with transmissions, and imbalances in chemicals that trigger depression, anxiety, etc. I've been on anti depressants my whole life and currently trying to come off, this along with other supplements and an extremely healthy diet (most important of all). Will definitely help, can't guarantee a fix but it's better than taking prescription drugs.
I had been taking Effexor for over two years, then Welbutrin for anxiety, however after taking months to wean off Effexor, then having extreme nausea from the Welbutrin, I found an article on Bodybuilding.com and decided this was worth a try. I've been taking this for over a week and so far it has been great, sleep is better, feeling more refreshed upon waking, and no pesky anxiety. I would definitely recommend!
My fiancé and I recently moved in together and unfortunately that means sharing the bed with someone who rolls around and gets up for bathroom breaks multiple times a night. Also I'm dealing with her annoying cat meowing at the door or coming in to garner attention in our sleep a few times a night. I'd been waking up almost every hour on bad nights and no less that 4-5 times on good nights. I also suffer from general anxiety, high strung/sweating in public, so I figure I'd give this a try.
I've suffered with depression and anxiety for 20 years. One day I came across a book called "The Mood Cure" so thought I would buy it, just to see why so many people were raving about the overnight changes they had experienced after reading the book. the basis of the book is to repair your brain chemistry naturally, with amino acids. I had given up on anti depressants that didn't really work (made me zombie like) and had horrible side effects like weight gain, loss of libido etc. So, after reading all the case studies and taking the false mood quiz, I ordered the 5-HTP. As crazy as this sounds, I felt like a new person within 24 hours. The biggest most immediate change I felt was that I didn't feel afraid, or have that social anxiety. I could go grocery shopping by myself again! Then I noticed, that I didn't have ANY symptoms of PMS after suffering with bouts of such debilitating depression that I was diagnosed with PMDD. I felt hopeful, and loved, and secure... getting out of bed and going to work was no longer a struggle for me. I looked forward to interacting with people. My brain felt sharper and more alert, and I was sleeping through the night again.
The pills were shipped promptly and I received them within a matter of days. Very pleased! I have noticed a difference while taking these and I will continue to for as long as I am able. I struggle with high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression. I feel less anxious and more balanced while taking these pills. Sometimes you just have to give in and get the help you need! It doesn't mean you are weak or that there is anything wrong with you, it means you are doing all you can to be the best you can be.
It's only been a week and I can already tell this stuff is working. I battle severe anxiety and I have been able to replace prescription medication with this vitamin. I would recommend to anyone.
This is the best natural anxiety supplement I have tried so far! Stops overthinking and irritability without tranquilizing you and turning you into a zombie. I actually have better focus and concentration when taking these. Also I can skip days without turning into a raging psycho and only take them as needed. I have noticed it will curve my appetite a little longer too if my lunch break seems days away.
Wow.. I wish I had found this a month ago. I've been going through a very rough month with work and my personal life. I would get multiple anxiety attacks a day. I kept trying to "sleep it off" and I finally did some research and came across this. The first 2-3 days I didn't notice a difference but after the 4th day, I noticed a drastic difference in my mood. I felt happy again and positive. Highly recommend this + chamomile tea!
I was so skeptical about taking this pill. I was having a rough time at work and this really did help me with my anxiety. The only thing is that you have to be careful what you eat with this. As I had caffeine one day and it made my anxiety worse. THey are easy to take and doesn't really irritate my stomach as some others do.
Diffent help if have anxiety
I do not ever leave reviews but this stuff is great! My anxiety and depression are finally manageable and my moods have improved 100%
I will be buying these all the time from now on. They truly seem to make my anxiety go away and I can tell I am much more mellow and laid back. It seemed to take a few days to "kick in" but I really do feel better taking these. I can't say much about controlling my appetite though I have lost 3 lbs. since taking them... Great product!
I began taking this a month ago and just purchased my second bottle. I have Post Finasteride Syndrome (PFS), which includes ongoing side effects from the medication Propecia (even after stopping). This condition has impacted my life: cognitively, metabolism, sexually, digestion-wise, etc. After taking this product I do feel better than before: calmer and more at-ease. Post Finasteride Syndrome leaves you in a state of constant physical anxiety and with cognitive impairment (brain fog). This has helped my consistent anxiety and made me feel more normal again, like I used to feel. Also, I think it is helping with my sleep and energy. I am generally feeling more balanced and hope this lasts. Thank you for this product..... I hope any other men with Post Finasteride Syndrome read this review and buy this because it may really help.
This one is a Lot Better than ‘Calm Now’ here on Amazon. With calm now I had to use 4 pills to feel something. With this one, I take one pill with my lunch and is enough for the all day. Basically gives good mood and doesn’t let you feel sad or depressed. I suffer from social anxiety and sometimes I get depressed. Since I’m taking them I haven’t feel depressed. I’m in good mood. And men. I’ll be buying them again. Oh! Also I’m sleeping like a baby. Never had problems with sleep before. But I feel like more sedated and ready to sleep. Sometimes if get a panic atack my heart doesn’t beat that fast like before , it’s like something is holding it from going faster. I’m mean. Just buy it.
I've been using this product for a little more than two weeks now to get the full affect of the product and understand how well it works. I'll start off by saying I'm 18, and although I was never diagnosed with depression or social anxiety, it was very apparent to me in my day-to-day lifestyle that I was experiencing the symptoms of it. That being said, the first time I took this pill I thought I was experiencing a placebo effect! How was it that this little product that I came across while searching for an appetite suppressant could work so well? It calmed me down, lowered my agitation, and virtually knocked all of my sadness and overthinking right out the door! Although I sometimes experience negative thoughts, they no longer control my overall emotions and sense of well being. Along with helping my depression and anxiety, this product has also helped me fall asleep quicker and stay asleep, and the appetite regulation has also helped me to feel fuller, faster! I'll definitely be ordering another bottle when I run out of my current one! TRY THIS PRODUCT! You won't regret it!
Great product....use regularly for tension headaches, and weight control...can also be good for depression and anxiety, as well as tension headaches.
Great product. Takes the edge off my anxiety. Definitely will be buying this brand again.
This product is wonderful! It helps me sleep better, and I feel refreshed the next morning. It has also eased a lot of my anxiety which is great bc I work in a very high stress field. I don't feel the negative effects of my work as much as I used to.
Helps with anxiety and I'm having a much better, deeper sleep!
Very helpful for my anxiety
NatureWise 5-HTP has helped me with mood swings and anxiety that I was experiencing due to perimenopause. Better sleep and appetite control is an added bonus!
I have recently been experiencing anxiety because I have two high energy toddlers. This product has improved my overall mood.
I have been taking this for a month along with CLA1250 and Organic Curcumin Tumeric. I have noticed that I sleep better and I have less anxiety than normal. It doesn't seem to help appetite, actually I feel hungrier than without it. I'm wondering if I need to try a different synergy of supplements. I have noticed any weight loss, but I don't weigh myself. My clothes still fit the same. I'm going to keep taking it, as I know this isn't a miracle product that will make me drop 50 pounds in a month. I'm dedicated and will stick with it.
It helps me with my anxiety and overthinking, I take it every night but when under stress or anxiety situations a bit more I take during the day.
Had anxiety when waking up this has helped morning anxiety and seems to help me sleep.
The NatureWise 5-HTP is helping me sleep a lot better and wake up a lot easier. I've also noticed it helping me not feel super hungry all the time. It also helps balance out my depression/anxiety without making me feel super high/low. Really fantastic product.
I have been taking 5-HTP for several months. I have noticed deeper sleep with less waking at night. I have also noticed I have less anxiety during the day since I have been taking this supplement, As with all supplements, this is not a miracle pill, but I definitely found that it helps.
I use this product for 6 months, since I started taking 5-HTP I have noticed a feeling of well being, decrease in anxiety and sleep better.
I have always struggled with anxiety and depression. Since starting Naturewise 5-HTP, my mood has improved significantly. I have also noticed increased energy which has prompted me to start exercising again. I have lost 15 lbs since starting this product!
Works well on my mood. Helping my anxiety
Before you get that doctor's prescription for the anti-anxiety medication, do your research on the benefits of Omega 3s and 5-HTP in promoting relaxation and calm. This product has greatly helped my 13 year old son.
I've been taking 5-HTP for management of mild anxiety and depression for about two years. Some brands definitely work better than others for me, naturewise is one of the 'working brands.'
I've been trying different brands of 5-HTP as I've found that in general it helps stabilize my mood and reduce anxiety, as well as help me feel more rested. This brand has been the most effective! I can definitely tell the difference when I forget to take it and I can tell the difference between this and other brands. Additionally, as many people have found, taking 5-HTP can cause GI distress. This brand causes the least of that which I'm so grateful for. Would definitely recommend for depression, anxiety, mood swings in general, and restful sleep!
I have fibromyalgia along with anxiety and depression and am overweight from a number of medications that I had been taking in the past for various health conditions. I had recently tapered off my Zoloft (an SSRI). I had decided with my Dr.'s permission, to try a natural supplement instead of the SSRI in an attempt to help with some of the above mentioned health conditions. I have been on the Naturewise 5-HTP supplement for almost three months and it has helped somewhat with the fibromyalgia pain and sleep problems but has helped a whole lot more with my moods and anxiety and depression. I have no plans to go back to the side effects including weight gain of the SSRI medications. A very welcome benefit of this product is the dampening effects on my appetite which has helped to contribute to some very much
This has been a great product for me. It has approved my overall mood, I am sleeping better, and my appetite is less. I can even tell if I miss a dose, I start to feel anxiety and worry creep back in. I've gotten my Mom to start taking it as well and the difference is staggering!
This product is amazing. I was going through sudden anxiety attacks and depression for a few months. My whole life I never felt that way before so I was really scared and stressed at how this happened out of the blue. My professor recommended I take 5-HTP to help with my serotonin levels. It makes me feel more motivated and hopeful. I feel happier too! It's also a great appetite controller. I usually snack a lot through out the day but taking this really controls the feeling that I want to eat.
I have had depression and chronic anxiety for many years. I have been on various prescription meds with horrible side effects. I was looking for a natural product as an alternative and came across 5HTP. I can honestly feel the difference in my energy levels, moods (much calmer) and it relaxes me when taken at night. I love that the ingredients are such great quality too!
Helps with depression, low moods, and anxiety
I take this as a nighttime sleep aid, relaxant and occasional mood lifter. I've found that it helps take the edge off of mild anxiety and can bring a lighter, more cheerful mood. Additionally, might be valuable for those using tyrosine, phenylalanine or other dopamine agonists as it's important to try to keep serotonin and dopamine in balance.
I've had insomnia for over 30 years (I'm 35) due to sleep related traumas. Ambien too often had negative effects and didn't work (I have anxiety about being drugged and not being able to escape in middle of night). I also have complex PTSD from repeated traumas as a civilian and in the military. Because of all this I'm high risk for early onset dementia/Alzheimers and also health problems caused by long periods of duress. I've tried some meds because meds are really pushed in veteran health care, but none have helped more than they hurt or enough to keep taking. I've also tried melatonin with short lived results.
Three weeks in and I am feeling great. The last few days I have woken up feeling rested. I also notice an overall calmness...not sure if that's from the "mood enhancement" or if it's actually easing my anxiety. Hubby started taking it as well.
I've had a lifelong low-level depression with bouts of severe depression and anxiety. This is the only thing I've ever taken that I've noticed a marked difference almost immediately (approximately 1 week). Since taking 5-HTP supplements, I fall asleep easier at night, wake up earlier, have significantly reduced appetite, reduced anxiety, and an overall more positive mood and outlook. I'm recommending it to all of my friends and family with serotonin imbalances.
This stuff is absolutely amazing!! I've been taking it for a month now and I can tell the difference in my calmness and contentment. I take one capsule each morning with breakfast and I feel peaceful and anxiety free for the rest of the day. I also make sure to eat well, staying away from caffeine and too much sugar. I take multivitamins too and omega fats. This isn't a cure all by itself, but it definitely contributes to overall feelings of easy-going(ness?)....
Seems to be helping with our daughters anxiety.
It helps me to feel less stressed. I suffer from anxiety and this greatly reduces my anxiety and the panicky feeling I sometimes get.
Seeing how if I'm honest with myself I just got this to be a diet pill, and then eventually realized how useless and harmful that pursuit is anyway, they are just sitting in my cabinet. They sort of work to suppress my appetite, but not as well as just f#$^ing eating some food. They do have a mood lift aspect, but they didn't heal my underlying darkness/anxiety/emptiness in other words whatever was causing me to want to lose weight in the first place. Not a bad temporary coping mechanism though. Still, maybe not a great idea to flood the body with serotonin long-term.
I have been struggling with anxiety and insomnia for years now. Was on prescription meds for years and stopped taking them due to the horrible side effects. I Did a lot of reading/research and came across 5htp. Decided to try your brand and so far it has been very helpful with both issues, thank you so much. A plus, was the decrease in my appetite.
I have anxiety that I prefer not to treat with prescription medication. I take this in the evening before bed each night and I sleep like a baby and feel more focused the next day. I'm so happy to have found this!
It helps to control my anxiety and appetite.
I've been including Naturewise 5-HTP in my supplement regimen for a couple of months, and recently increased from 100mg to 200 mg daily. Since I'm on a number of other supplements and meditate regularly, it's difficult for me to isolate it as a singular variable, but my anxiety levels are certainly lower than they have been in recent months, and my sense of balance has increased as well. Recognizing the importance of serotonin in my sense of well being, I intend to keep taking this brand of 5-HTP indefinitely.
they does help my panic attack and anxiety attack... thank to my friend who recommend about this! i will def order this bottle when my first is out. :)
The 5-HTP promotes a calmness that I had not experienced before. I am on a weight-loss plan but I don't feel very hungry. I plan to continue using this product to calm my anxiety.
I have been taking this with L-Tyrosine in a 1:10 ratio. I have noticed a huge change in my mood! It is very typical for me to have some pretty bad anxiety but taking this combo definitely helps! The 5-htp is great for getting a more restful sleep. I usually drag in the morning but this has made me sleep more sound and feel refreshed in the morning! Love the fact that a free bottle coupon came with my first purchase! Happy Customer here! Will definitely continue purchasing from this company.
Since I have been taking this product, I have noticed better sleeping, and less anxiety and more calmness. No side effects. I take it daily at bedtime.
The 100mg regular formula changed my life for tge better with respect to anxiety and depression. Unfortunately that formula is no longer available. The 200mg time-release formula has no effect and even seems to make my axiety and depression worse.
This supplement has really helped me. I've suffered with anxiety and insomnia most of my life, and this product has helped me to ween off of another medication I had been taking.
Most effective brand I have ever used and I've tried them all..the higher end brands... I definitely noticed less edginess, less blues, less anxiety, more smiles, more patience and felt more rested with the Naturewise brand. I also like the Made n USA.
I suffer from PMDD, so during Luteal phase I don't feel myself (depression, anxiety, tension, mood swings, binge eating). My friend gave my 5-htp (Naturewise) to try. It helped my after a couple of days of taking it. I started to feel more relaxed and calm. Couple of days ago I bought my own bottle, so it seems to be a relief for me since I don't want to take prescribed medication or antidepressants. Plus it's natural, delivered from seeds of Griffonia plant.
I have always struggled with depression and anxiety and this has helped!
5-HTP can help with stress and anxiety. This product works well at a great price!
I take the 100 mg during the day as needed and the 200 mg at night. It helps with depression, anxiety, appetite control. I highly recommend researching the product and trying it out. It has helped me a lot and is much better than the prescription antidepressants I have been put on in the past. I am really impressed and wish I had known about it earlier.
I am not sure what it did for my appetite but it has definitely made my moods and anxiety much better.Worth taking it just for that.And I can stay asleep much better!
Helps with my anxiety and also helps me to have a more restful sleep.
Since taking this supplement I feel that my anxiety has been reduced and has become much more manageable. Additionally, my overall mood seems to have improved and it seems to have improved my sleep cycle and quality of sleep as well. Very satisfied!
It has worked very well for me. Helps me sleep, and with anxiety and depression. No side effects, other than some loss of appetite (although not major).
I started to take this product in place of the medicine I was on for depression and anxiety. I feel it is working tremendously. I do not feel anxious often to where I need my Xanex. I feel massively decreased signs of depression since taking this, and it is natural which is the best part. i am so glad I got out from under the control of prescription medicines and found this supplement.
Since I started taking 5-HTP I have noticed a feeling of well being, decrease in anxiety, and decrease in appetite. There side no side effects as with other appetite control supplements. I would highly recommend this supplement to anyone who needs a little help in any of these areas. As usual 'naturewise' products and customer service are fantastic. If you are reading this you are probably on the fence, give it a try. Why not!!
I have suffered from mild to severe anxiety and mild depressive episodes off and on over the years, and just over the past yr I've struggled with episodes of not being able to sleep day in and day out, due to health issues, which only made my health worse with such a sever lack of sleep... I discovered the best remedy for all of these issues, is none other then this amazing vitamin 5HTP. It not only helps to calm my nerves and anxiety, but it also helps me sleep more solid thru out the night, and allows me to wake more clear headed and rested in the morning. And during a depressive episode, I take one dose, and fall asleep for a few hrs. When I wake up, the depression is gone... However, I don't take this product on a daily basis, every day, as I only use it when I'm struggling with those issues, So I end up using it maybe 3 to 5 times a wk, mostly when I'm struggling with a lack of sleep, till my sleep pattern seems to be better again, but I've long decided that I won't be without my 5HTP ever again... I Thank God for leading me to an this natural product that I know won't cause sever side affects like medications do... Hallelujah.
I suffer from anxiety and NatureWise 5-HTP has significantly improved my mood by increasing my sense of calmness. It also reduces my urge to snack between meals.
Really enjoyed this product, initially bought it for anxiety but realized it was helping me sleep also. If you're looking for a natural mood boost, grab this product! You won't regret it
This product is a game changer! I was distraught over the loss of my dog, and this product brought a calmness to me without the loss of emotion so many anti anxiety medication can cause. I told my circle of friends about this product and many have all purchased as well.
My teenager takes this, with the pediatrician's approval, and it helps with hormonal mood, anxiety, and depression issues. The depression is secondary to social anxiety - difficulty in social situations as a teen is not an easy thing to deal with which results in depressed mood. I could tell an improvement after the first few days; less self isolation, improved mood, etc. This does not aggravate the anxiety at all (one capsule in the morning and one in the evening 100 mg. each) and the pediatrician is monitoring. I did quite a bit of research before trying this in lieu of prescription antidepressants and I have included a link for information below. Last but not least, Nature-Wise is a brand that I trust for quality products.
I started taking five HTP a few months back as an alternative to antidepressants. I take it in conjunction with Tumeric and omega fish oil. I believe that biochemically I do not produce enough serotonin and a supplement helps my body to naturally produce more of it. I have seasonal affective disorder and also generalized anxiety and my mood has been stable and my spirits have been high since starting this natural regimen. I ran out of it for a few weeks and I noticed a difference. I was more anxious and definitely more moody. I also think the supplements helps me curb my cravings for sweets. I noticed that my appetite is not as in satiable when I am taking your supplements. The pills are tiny and easy to swallow and I love the amber glass bottle. This is definitely a quality supplement for the price and I will probably be taking us for a long long time.
This has helped overall anxiety issues greatly!
best natural anti anxiety out there. Just be careful can cause stomach ache.
I bought this product hoping to relieve my insomnia, but I got more than just a good night's sleep. My adult son started using it for depression, mood swings and anxiety. It's made a HUGE difference in him. He's happier, less moody, and more motivated. Thank God!! He's been suffering with depression and anxiety for many many years, but he hates to take prescription drugs because they only mask the problem or cause other health problems. 5-HTP has really made a difference in him. I was slightly skeptical at first, but now I'm a believer. This stuff really works! God is good and all glory to Him!
Amazing!! This formula does not upset my stomach and truly helps with my anxiety! I take it before bed and have had no issues.
5-HTP by Naturwise helped me get over my anxiety and bulimia.
I enjoyed this product a lot the first month. I was sleeping much better. It also decreased my appetite. I don't need to loose weight, so I had to be mindful of food intake. I started to experience some subtle anxiety and wakefulness at night the second month, and read that 5-HTP can have that effect for some people, so cut back. I am going to start to take it a 2-3 days a week and see if that helps.
Keeps me calm, helps me sleep. I notice a difference if I miss a few days... would recommend to those who struggle with anxiety as an alternative
This product is great for keeping my anxiety level low - despite a stressful workplace.
helps my anxiety a lot
I give this to my teenage son for his anxiety. It is truly amazing how much it has helped him. His mood overall is better, his anxiety and his ability to deal with his anxiety has improved tremendously. He's a happier kid now because of this, and because he's happier, he makes better choices and gets in less trouble. This has been a life saver!
I am this product's biggest fan. I had been on anti-anxiety, antidepression medications for about 6 years. Nothing really helped and I always felt in a fog. I finally made the decision to ween off my latest antidepressant (pristiq). A friend recommended this product to me and after much reaearch decided to give it a try. Turns out, after about 2 months of use taking 200mg a day, I feel better than I EVER did on prescription medications. I also suffer from migraines and this has helped keep them at bay. I can't recommend it to my family and friends enough.
The 5htp helps manage anxiety and stress which is a big issue for me. An added bonus is it also helps control appetite.
This product is helping me feel more relaxed and focused , helps with mind chatter and mild anxiety which I started experiencing in menopause.
I started taking this almost two months ago for generalized anxiety. I’ve suffered with constant anxiety for the last three years with only a few days here and there where I felt “normal” (like I used to). After about a week or two of taking the 5HTP and adding walking to my days I have noticed a huge improvement. I have days where I feel completely normal again and if I experience a trigger it doesn’t effect me at the same intensity or duration that it used to. It’s not a total cure since I know a big part of the anxiety treatment will be retraining my thought processes, but with the 5HTP I feel enabled to tackle those aspects of my anxiety, too.
Works great! Very calming. When taken before bed, it reduces racing thoughts and eases anxiety to help me get to sleep and stay asleep.
I bought this product due to anxiety issues not being resolved by my antidepressant. It definitely improved my mood and let me relax a little about losing weight. I also got a bottle for free just by posting my review.
I have severe Panic Disorder and I also suffer from depression, which is not easy to treat as usually medicating one disorder will exacerbate the other one. I'm currently taking Welbutrin for my depression, which works wonders and gives me tons of energy and motivation. The problem is that it is an upper and makes my anxiety so much worse. I cannot mix my medication with anything for anxiety, so I've been forced to deal with one or the other. I started taking 5-HTP and the feeling of peace it gives me is wonderful. I fall asleep easier, I feel positive, and it takes the edge off my nerves. I love this product!
5-HTP is the single reason why I am able to sleep again. I have been stacking with L-Theanine to curb anxiety which has been a big help. I feel like a mellow Buddha most the time now and only seem to get anxious when I realize I'm not anxious (since that has been my normal state for the past 10 years). Regarding dose, I follow what's prescribed, one in the morning and one before bed.
I've always struggled with insomnia, depression and anxiety. The 5-HTP seems to be working well. I've been sleeping better, my mood has been more stable and my anxiety is not nearly as intense despite only taking half the recommended daily dosage.
this product reduces stress and anxiety, as well as helps me sleep better all while balancing my mood
Just started taking this supplement and so far so good. I take 2 times a day with meals, so no upset stomach. I started taking to help ease the anxiety provoking thoughts before bed. I have been getting to sleep better and feel relaxed during the day. Can't comment on curbing appetite yet. I hope to report on that when I finish the supplement.
5-HTP has helped me sleep better and really reduced my anxiety. I recommend this product! Naturewise also sent a second bottle free in exchange for an honest review.
I have been taking this for a few weeks because I have problems with my mood and have insomnia. I have recently quit smoking and am taking Wellbutrin/Zyban to quit smoking and I have read that 5-HTP also helps nicotine cravings and I haven't smoked in a few weeks and I am sleeping better. I have taking many NatureWise products and believe how they have dark bottles to protect from sunlight helps from the product to not degrade. I also have anxiety and had to take anti-depressants but I did not like the side effects. 5-HTP works and I don't notice any side effects. I recommend this product over the other 5-HTP products because NatureWise is known for their quality and it also it also includes vitamin B-6 which others don't.
Significally improved my sleep and anxiety levels. Will but again.
My brain is put on high demand during a normal work day. I don't want to start taking some prescription that is for ADHD. I decided to give this a shot and see if it would help. I took one pill per day on an empty stomach before bed, as instructed. I slept good and the next day, I felt less anxious, which put my mind to work on actual work and not on the stress of the workload. Consistent use has kept the anxiety down, my mood pretty level, and I have gotten a lot more work done without having to take a lot of breaks.
I have anxiety and instead of taking something that would need to be prescribed for me I take the 5-HTP. It relaxes me enough to where I calm down but I don't feel drugged. I'm thankful for this supplement.
Seriously a great product. I suffer from anxiety and insomnia, and this has so far been great as far as helping me cope and fall asleep. I would definitely recommend this product for other people to at least try.
I noticed limited effects immediately, such as an improved mood. After the first week of taking one capsule twice a day, I noticed that I was able to sleep better, largely due to my anxiety symptoms being lessened. After the first month, I noticed that I didn't feel like I needed to constantly be eating, and I'm wondering if that's because I am feeling more positive in general, and I used to turn to food as a way to not deal with negative feelings.
Seems to help with my mood, more pleasant thoughts in general. I'm trying it first even though I have a script from my doc for an antidepressant for my anxiety disorder. (He suggested trying the 5-htp first.) So far, so good. I may try to up the dose, but for now I just take one a day, at no time in particular. I've only had it for a little less than a week. I've definitely noticed a drop in appetite which is a nice bonus.
I take this along with magnesium at night. It helps with my sleep and seems to lessen anxiety and nerves and allow me to fall asleep.
I notice reduced anxiety too.
This products works very good. Has helped with some anxiety and to curb my hunger throughout the day as well. I would like to receive my free bottle as well. Thanks!
This product works well if you take it nightly. It has helped my depression and anxiety. Make sure you don’t use it if you are taking an SSRI though. It could cause serotonin syndrome. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend it. I can also tell a decrease in my appetite since I started taking this.
All I can say is that it seemed to help me a bit with my mood during the day, (meaning less anxiety) and also seemed to help a bit with my sleep. I think it took me about a couple a weeks to start to notice any changes. Everyone's body is different, so I stuck it out for a while and it seemed to make a difference for me. Thanks
After a few weeks of research, I ordered this product to help with the production of serotonin and melatonin to avoid getting back on anti-depressants. I've been using this product for a few months now, and it has made an incredible difference in my overall demeanor, and has helped tremendously with my anxiety and depression. I did not experience any weight loss with this product (as others have reported). I'm such a fan of this product that I've suggested it to other friends who suffer from similar conditions, but who don't wish to take antidepressants.
As an alternative to traditional antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications, 5-HTP helps me with stress and mood management.
So far, so good. It seems to help with my bedtime anxiety and r definitely suppresses my appetite.
I suffer from both depression and anxiety and recently got off of all prescribed medications. I noticed an increase in symptoms of both depression and anxiety, and began searching for natural alternatives to relieve said symptoms. 5-htp has helped me sleep more soundly, wake more rested, feel less anxious, and feel more optimistic about things. I still struggle some, but it has certainly seemed to help make things a bit easier. On days that I forget to take it, I can definitely tell the difference. 5-htp is great, and the fact that NatureWise brand uses vegan capsules means that I will be purchasing this product many times in the future.
I love this 5 HTP. It has helped me so much with general well being and anxiety.
I am 44 years old and I've been taking testosterone boosters, which make me easily agitated. Since taking 5-HTP it has truly leveled me out. I'm also sleeping better at night, which is a bonus for me. I used to stay up late worrying about things I can't control. Well not anymore since I have been taking this. I will be a regular customer!
I really like this product. It has worked well with my seasonal depression. I feel much less anxiety.
Another great supplement from this company !!! I now take their 5,000 iu Vitamin D, Thermo Blend day and Nightime, and I have been equally impressed with all of them. My daughter struggles with anxiety and depression as well as sleep issues. Though not a cure we have noticed a significant improvement overall since taking the -HTP. I also take it to help manage my issues with sleep and anxiety, so it works well for a wide age range as well since my daughter is 16 and I am 47. Something I really like is that it is truly a supportive supplement, so the changes are subtle, not drastic and artificial. I will continue to explore the other supplements they offer as well as some they will be introducing in 2017 per an email I received .
I take this for depression and anxiety, so far so good. It does cause me insomnia, so for me, its best taken of a morning. Currently taking 100mg per day, and will up the dosage as needed. Seems to be doing the job!
Helps me resolve anxiety, and helps me to fall asleep at night.
So, I was having some problems with periodic anxiety and weight gain due to menopause. I decided to shake up my supplement regimen with CLA 1250, 5-HTP and Thyroid Support. I also increased the cardio portion of my 3x/wk workouts by adding a slow jog on the treadmill. I can definitely feel a difference in mood and energy, a decrease in the desire to eat between meals, and the excess weight is gradually coming off. Can't say that I notice a big difference in sleep yet, but we will see what happens. Overall, feeling and looking better =)
I went through 3 years of severe sleep deprivation after my second child. I began to have muscle cramps and memory problems along with anxiety and irritability. 2 days after beginning 5htp, I could tell an improvement! I have been taking 5htp for about 5 weeks now, and I feel so much better.
Helps me with my anxiety and insomnia. I've been sleeping much better and don't feel groggy in the morning, much more clear headed.
Love this stuff, noticed an immediate difference in my son being able to fall asleep and he also is more calm. I experienced a more "centered" feeling. Will def be continuing to use this. Would recommend for anyone with trouble falling asleep or with anxiety!
I was looking for a natural supplement for anxiety, as I didn't want to take prescription medication for this. I'm so happy I tried this product! It's reduced my anxiety and is truly an answer to prayer!
Great to help combat anxiety! Seems to have helped with sleep improvements, as well. Will definitely continue using this product.
I started taking 5-HTP recently in order to control my anxiety and I cannot believe how well it works! And the best part is that it's made with all-natural ingredients in the U.S. As someone who is very concerned with what they put into their body, I am so happy to have found the NatureWise brand. And, it's much more affordable than some other brands of 5-HTP! All in all, I can see why NatureWise is so highly recommended; they even have a deal to receive your second bottle, absolutely free, including shipping. Can't beat a deal like that, especially when it comes to natural supplements.
You really get some bang for your buck. I am a huge supporter of this supplement and it really helps with my anxiety, keeping me calm all day without making me drowsy
I have been on and off anxiety meds for a number of years and after deciding to get off my daily meds recently I thought this might provide a nice transition off the medication. I was correct. This product is great.
I have struggled with depression and social anxiety for many years. After being on antidepressants that made me feel like a zombie, I decided to look into a natural alternative. After weening off my medications, I started taking this supplement. Honestly I haven't felt this good ever. My sleep has improved significantly and I've had more energy at work and throughout the day. I went from being someone who was exhausted every morning and ready to go to bed at 6pm most nights to being able to workout at 5am and still have tons of energy in the evening. I will be using this product for a long time and would highly recommend it.
Great product. I use it to help manage stress and anxiety. It's natural and I don't feel like I'm loaded up with drugs.
very helpful for anxiety
I've been using this product for a few months after experiencing anxiety. I honestly feel so much better taking this product. This curbs my appetite a little. I also sleep a lot better at night. Highly recommend.
I decided to go the more 'natural route' and stop taking my prescription rx ssri/anxiety medication. Since I have stopped those & began HTP I have not had any significant spells of anxiousness or irritability. So far so good, moving onto my 2nd bottle, I will add I am also taking Turmeric Curcumin 1300mg daily as well after doing some research.
5-HTP has really helped with my depression and anxiety. It even almost completely relieved my withdrawals when I quit smoking weed. I ordered this brand because of the positive reviews on Amazon and because it also has B6 in it which helps the 5-HTP metabolize better. Not many other versions offer this! I've been taking it for almost a year now and it's been a great product.
I have been taking for a couple of months and have really noticed a difference in my anxiety.
Fabulous! It works for me to curb my anxiety, mood swings and other symptoms associated with ADD. I came to purchase this due to watching a PBS special on ADD. Another product they recommend in addition to 5-HTP is GABA.
These really help with anxiety. Also helps me sleep at night. I would like to try these again
While taking this is not, by itself, a life-changer... it has definitely impacted the levels of anxiety and angst that I often experience throughout the day. It helps me sleep longer and is best taken (for me) at bedtime.
I have found that I am beginning to sleep better with less anxiety and I am reaching for healthy foods instead of sugar.laden processed. Very sublte, but I was wondering what was different and attribute partly to this product.
5 HTP has helped reduce anxiety and promote better sleep. Definitely recommended!
This product has been so helpful. I still struggle with food, but my anxiety, sleep, and mood have greatly improved since I started using it.
I was having multiple symptoms this product completely made go away. It regulated my serotonin levels which were off due to working nights, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, anxiety, and feeling somewhat irritable sometimes. This product is simply amazing! Overall I feel happier and less stressed.
This product works for me. I get anxiety occasionally and this works to help ease that up. Doesn't have any weird side effects. I will definitely purchase again when I run out.
I am actually really surprised by how well this works. No, it's not like taking a prescription or anything, but there is definitely a noticeable difference when taking it. I tend to get stressed out a lot and have anxiety attacks. This definitely calms the overall symptoms of an anxiety attack. I may still feel a little nervous after taking it, but the heart palpitations and the chest pains do stop, which is the scariest part to me.
I decided to start taking Hyland's Nerve Tonic Stress Relief tablets because so many people said that they worked amazingly at calming nerves, and had very little side effects. A little back story about me, I suffer from anxiety, and get stressed out very easily. I do lots of exercise, minimize the amount of alcohol I consume, and try to meditate every single day to ease my problems, but they exist. Anyway, I ordered some of the relief tablets and started taking them, initially just a couple every few hours, but I found myself having to take more and more of them until I was taking about 4 or 5 each time I would take them. I went through an entire bottle in a week. As for the results, once I got up to four tablets, I actually felt the calming relief and I was able to get to sleep at night just twenty minutes after my evening dosage. In terms of just the results, I definitely appreciate how the tonic stress tablets work for my body. They give you a calming feeling with very little side effect, and they last for a decent amount of time. That said, this is after you take several tablets at a time, which I don't think is good, and a couple times per day.
Honestly, I expected stronger effect but it is my first day of taking this, so I will wait couple of days,see if there is an improvement and write update. This is homeopathy so it could take longer to give full benefit. I have extreme anxiety and feel some relieve after first three doses, although it is very mild. Seems this stuff is just too weak for my severe anxiety issues. What I like about it is that it gives me more calm and at the same time focused and clear mind.But I still have pretty bad nervousness and If nothing changes in a few days I will look for something else.
This is good stuff, if you take it regularly, does help me during the day time stress or anxiety.
Considering the fact that I have anxiety and also a lot of stress in my life, these little babies have given me a lot of support. I generally only take 2-4 per day - and usually at night before bed. They really help take the edge off without making me numb, or without knocking me out, or without making me feel completely detached from my circumstances. I do feel I can take more deep breaths when I use these and consider them to be a normal part of my daily regimen.
I started taking these after being discharged from the hospital from a 2 month stay due to major surgery. I have never experienced such anxiety, depression, and feeling of being overwhelmed while in the hospital and even more so once I returned home. My entire life had changed, and even though I kept telling my Dr of how I felt when I was in hospital nothing was done other than a sleeping pill which stopped working after two weeks. While searching for something that may help, I came across these so I ordered one and figured I'll give them a try. First dosage worked, and quickly for me. With all i still have to go through and all the stress, anxiety and being overwhelmed that comes with dealing with it all and dealing with people and etc i find these actually work for me, and fast. I had a bottle sent every month and now get them every other month. For me, these work. I'm sure everyone is different, but I'm so glad I have found these. Will continue to purchase these until I feel i don't need them any more, but for now they keep help me to cope and feel better.
I am using Hyland's Nerve Tonic Stress Relief Tablets to help with anxiety that I have experienced all of my life. This is working better than I ever could have expected. Way better than anything else.
I get social anxiety daily, these have been great to take when i just need a little extra help. I dont want to take medication and become addicted so these are a great alternative. I feel the calming effects almost immediately.
I suffer from awful anxiety and was thankful this stuff works so well. It's not 100%, but it's enough of a reduction that I'm not worried about going on pharmaceutical medicines!
I've been using these for years. I don't take any prescription medicine, but I use these when I find myself a little bit nervous or anxious in stressful times. They help relieve my anxiety and make me feel better. Good short term relief.
I tend to get beyond the average amount of stressed at times. This absolutely helps me calm down and put things in perspective. I can't say that it completely takes away the anxiety, but it surely makes my mindset calmer.
This product works really well with anxiety and stress.
Love this stuff. Seems to really help my 7 year old with separation anxiety disorder.
I love this product!! I recommend it to everyone who wants a natural way to help with tension and anxiety, or if you just need a little help getting through the day. They work really fast with no side effects.
I have a child with ADHD and anxiety. This works wonders on her nervous energy and even helps her sleep better.
I have suffered from crippling anxiety for a few years now. I was on depression meds which in turn I think made it worse and xanex which is very habit forming. After trying to get help when feeling my worst after years of being off meds, I was told by a PA in an office ,who Ive never met before to not come back unitl I get therapy. Thanks to nerve tonic I didnt have to endure that ridicule anymore. it works very very well. allows you to focus, stay calm, and helps tremendously with racing thoughts. its really a life saver
Miracle pill. I suffered from constant anxiety attacks and depression. These pills have brought balance back to my life. I'm more level headed, patient, and over all happy. My relationship is stronger than ever bc I communicate better... I think mainly because of my overall better mood. I've recommended this to several friends and they have all felt similar results. I took at least 6 pills 3 times a day. Now I take them when in stressful situations or when I start to feel anxious. I haven't had an attack in several months. I also don't depend on them as much as I did in the beginning. It's great bc I feel like myself. I did a lot of research and felt these were a better alternative for my body than prescribed drugs.
I teach middle school and being around 100 prepubescent teenagers can be a little nerve wracking at times (to say the least). I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and am prone to panic attacks. In the past the only thing that has helped are benzodiazepines. My doctor won't prescribe those so I've been in a panic (literally) trying to find something to keep me from burning out emotionally and physically. To be clear, these are NOWHERE near what prescription drugs can do. So if you're looking for that, this isn't it and there isn't much OTC that can come close. However, I combine this with kratom during the day and they do help to alleviate some of the stress. It doesn't really make me sleepy and it doesn't really elevate my mood...just kinda feels like how you feel after exercising - that sense of well being and calmness.
My husband uses these for occasional physical anxiety. They work as well as Valium (maybe better), they're not a controlled substance, they have no side effects that we've noticed, and, when purchased in large quantities on the Web, they're comparatively inexpensive.
This product calms my nerves and anxiety. Works as advertised!
definitely takes the edge off for when I have a job interview or a presentation. doesn't fully relieve my anxiety symptoms, but definitely helps a lot. will consider repurchasing when I run out. I take about 10 pills at a time. they begin working within a half hour for me.
These work. For during the day, it can make you a bit more relaxed and reduce anxiety significantly. For nighttime, they can make the difference between a night of restful sleep and one of tossing and turning.
I truly love this nerve tonic, I have terrible anxiety being a passenger in a car which has only worsened over the years. This tonic is something I use regularly and since its sublingual it works instantly making life easier on my husband. You just take the dosage you feel you need.
Wanted it to help my stress/anxiety. Could it? The price said it was worth a try. I love it!
This product is great for mild to moderate social anxiety. I paid full price and will do so again!
Perfect works wonderful for anxiety:panic 👌
This seems to help me with my anxiety, it at least takes a little of the edge off on my stressful days.
I have really bad anxiety that has no clear cause. At night, when I need to sleep, I have tried wine and other relaxants. The wine just gives me a headache and relaxants like those with melatonin in it does nothing for me. I dissolve 6 of these Nerve tonic pills under my tongue and they relax me better than any other non-prescription pill I've tried.
These are wonderful for the individual who can't tolerate swallowing pills. Safe for both kids and adults. They don't produce a dramatic calming effect, but just enough to take the edge off anxiety. I'll be purchasing them again for sure.
It really helps with my anxiety and nervous tension
Don't know if it's mind over matter but this helps me avoid taking a second dose of my anxiety medication.
I love this stuff, and totally recommend it. It works for anxiety, however it can also make you sleepy, so following the instructions and your own body signals is important. I used to buy it locally, $6 for only 50ct, so when I saw this I thought someone must have typed an extra zero in there by accident! But nope! It is 500 count. This is totally natural, does not interfere with UA testing, and works to dampen anxiety. I also use it to help me fall asleep. There is no groggy feeling, or hangover from it, just manage how much you take. I love this stuff!
fast delivery, have used it several times, and does take the edge off anxiety, so far works well
Works well for anxiety/panic attacks.
Noticeably reduces my anxiety symptoms within minutes. I keep a bottle in my purse and one at home at all times.
These work wonders. Take them in the morning before a stressful day or take them at the onset of anxiety. I love them!
Ordered two boxes because two of my loves have anxiety. Both have said they feel less anxious when they take them at the onset of situations they feel like they will get upset in. I will keep them in supply as long as they see results. Glad my friend told me about these!
Works real good, helps my anxiety.
I take a prescription anti anxiety med, and on bad days; this stuff really helps!!
Stuff eases anxiety. It works very well when I go into a fully muscle spasm and I panic.
This product works well. Good price and packaged nicely.
After having an awful allergic reaction to Lexapro, I was desperate to find natural supplements to help with my anxiety. I had forgotten that I purchased this some time ago and decided to start taking it again. As a teacher, I was having awful morning anxiety (Sunday blues anxiety) so I would take this right before bed and first thing in the morning. This along with a magnesium supplement and a magnesium oil spray have worked wonders for me! I do exactly as the instructions say and love that it dissolves. I've never been big on taking pills so, this makes it really easy. Would definitely recommend it, especially if you're looking for more natural remedies.
These tablets are great. They've helped tremendously in helping me recover from a single depressive episode that was accompanied by severe anxiety and nervousness. I had NEVER experienced anything like this, (and I'm 67 years old), but it was brought on by overwhelming stress that just reached a critical point. Over the course of 18 months, my situation has improved significantly with the assistance of a mild anti-depressant and the diligent application of a lot of positive mental self-help techniques. I'm now tapering off the anti-depressant, and whenever I feel some of that old nervousness come back, I take three of the Hyland tablets, and the nervousness disappears for most of the rest of the day. I feel calm and able to function normally. I only take them occasionally as needed because my goal is to deal with life through positive mental techniques, good diet, and exercise, rather than with drugs. It's comforting to know these are not addictive and not harmful to your health. They've been a great help for me.
Incredibly enough, it takes the edge off anxiety, anger, fear etc. awesome!
Relieves anxiety quickly ~ Works faster than the caplets ~ Non-addicting ~ Great Value ~ Can be used by adult or teenager ~ Glad that it is offered in the Subscribe & Save program
Works great to take the edge off anxiety. Not as overwhelming as valerian, and not prescription strength. It's probably not enough to work on a full anxiety attack, they're pretty mild, but they help enough to notice.
Took 4 pills to see if it would help with my anxiety disorder...makes me feel slightly more relaxed, and surprisingly always takes away my stress headaches, which normally don't go away when I take tylenol. Doesn't do much when my anxiety is more extreme, but did generally make me feel a little more calm.
The product is okay. It did help me during some highly stressful situations. I would recommend to others that deal with anxiety.
WOW! Just WOW! That's honestly all I can say right now about this product. I was highly skeptical about buying this product at first, because I was like this is just another one of those placebos that claims to do something just to make a few bucks. I am a full-time college student who suffers from a lot of stress and, especially, anxiety issues. After taking these tablets, I've really noticed a difference. It wasn't a feeling that I was used to because I felt calm and relaxed - in other words, I felt normal! Which it's been years since I felt that way. These tablets have really raised my confidence level and I engage in more conversations in class and I don't feel like I have a burden hanging over me. I highly recommend Nerve Tonic to anyone who suffers from stress and/or anxiety!
I got these actually at CVS! I saw them also at a natural wholesome store near my home and decided to get them at CVS after much research. I basically have been having a string of stressful events and issues happening to me over this past few weeks and needed something NATURAL to calm me a bit of my anxiety and heavy chest feeling (stress). So I take these and they work for me. I'm calmer and sort of a little fuzzy (In a good way). I take melatonin drops at night to sleep which are also natural. These in my opinion ease my tension. I am trying to relieve myself of stress naturally and also incorporate exercise and better eating habits. I hope they work for those who are on the hunt for a more homeopathic and natural journey; i know the hunt is extensive.
Helps my anxiety, quick resolving.
I have anxiety and stress and this does seem to help calm me down.
Amazing anxiety relief
They work but not as well as I'd like them to.
These are great for when I’m feeling mildly anxious. They’re gentle and non-addictive. I only use them when I need to. It’s no miracle cure. It hasn’t cured my anxiety. It just relieves the symptoms when my chest starts to feel tight. There aren't any side-effects that I've noticed. No drowsiness or nausea.
Good natural product to control stress and anxiety. It is very useful to take daily to reduce stress levels. Pills dissolve easily under tongue.
Wanted something for my anxiety that wasn't prescription, works pretty darn well!
These really help with anxiety and nerves.
Not overwhelming, very mild effects, and I take them every day. Helps me focus and reduce anxiety during everyday activities.
I've never had anxiety before in my entire life (I'm 30 yrs old). However, within the past year, I've been struggling with controlling that tight feeling in my chest. Mostly because I've been having issues with depression recently in my life. I was told to control my thoughts and meditate, which I also do and they both help me a lot! But sometimes, even when I'm not worrying, I get that anxious feeling in my chest, shoulders, and gut. These pills made me super sleepy at work but they definitely took the edge off. I'm giving them 4 stars because they do what they are supposed to do, they definitely calm you down. They are also reasonably priced and surprisingly, I did feel more focused and my thoughts stayed on one thing at a time. But they make you very sleepy in the process so I can't give them a full 5.
Keeps me calm and calms me when I am having an anxiety attack. I had never taken anything for anxiety before this, I took 2 first and then tried 3 and it turned out to be too big a dosage. Since my body was not used to anything, taking 3 at once sent me into a state of being high. My eyes were droopy and I became extremely sleepy. I knocked out for a good 3 hours. I recommend starting slow with the dosage and being home when you try it. Overall it did what it was supposed to and calmed me down.
I have horrible, horrible anxiety this tends to calm it down a little.
I get some pretty serious PMS and I run my own home business. So I always have to be on and happy and cheerful to be able to keep doing what I do. Sometimes this also creates anxiety. I took these little sugary dissolvable pills about an hour ago and I feel fantastic! This strange feeling that I had like a grey cloke was on top of my heart is gone. I hope they keep working! I was almost at the point of getting anxiety medication I'd much rather do something natural yeah yay hyland!
These tablets have done wonders for me. I have anxiety and social anxiety but taking these tablets really have helped me. The only downside is the 500 tablet version has much smaller tablets than the 50 tablets I found in a local store. You may have to take more tablets to achieve the same relief.
I never knew I had anxiety until I started nursing school. It took me a couple of near heart attacks during exams before I got these and they really help me a lot! I have a low tolerance to medications, so it may be why they work so well for me. They may be placebos, and honestly I don't care, they help me. So glad I found them, I am now able to focus on what I need to.
I have to take so many so many times to get my nerves together.... works if u don't have bad anxiety or nerves
I have bad anxiety works very well
This helped me when dealing with anxiety. May have been a placebo but it was comforting to know I had some way to manage it.
I take these for anxiety as needed and they work within 15 minutes. These are a a wonderful alternative to going to a doctor which is a lot more expensive.
These things work amazing. I've noticed however that they work best when kept in your system. So ensure that you take them on track and scheduled and it will work wonders for reducing anxiety.
This is probably the best natural anxiety relief I have tried. It won't knock you out or leave you dizzy, but really takes the edge off anxiety and stress. It doesn't last long, but it does work quickly and helps mild anxiety for about 20 minutes.
Suffer from terrible anxiety and helps tremendously. Used to be on prescription and this is a great substitute
Great Product!!! Really helps with stress and anxiety
calms me when I have anxiety
This works! Anxiety reduced within 10 minutes. If you have a diagnosed anxiety condition, I would not recommend ceasing use of prescribed medications. But if you are not diagnosed with anxiety or panic disorder, and become nervous when driving in traffic or sweat before you go to a meeting, this could help you.
I do not struggle with anxiety but when I get anxious it is pretty bad this is the only product I have found that works
Started taking these 2 days ago. I have stress and anxiety. Along with restlessness. Awesome. Makes me feel calm. I like that you can take them throughout the day with no side effects. Doesn't make you sleepy just relaxed.
I'm a chronic generalized anxiety sufferer who has taken Xanax and different SSRI's; while those meds definitely work, they are expressive and habit forming. Nerve Tonic has much the same effect but to a somewhat lesser degree, but they do, in my case, work. I'm NEVER without a bottle. Great Stuff.
I have only been using this product for a week and so far I will rate it five stars I suffer from severe anxiety and this keeps me calm when I need it to!
I suffer anxiety and nervousness off and on. When I take Hyland's Nerve Tonic, I feel so relaxed. My mind feels at ease. I love this natural product.
Great for anxiety if you're not lactose intolerant! Oh boy!
Works great for my kids at bedtime. Also, I'm weaning off klonopin and this has been the only natural remedy that's worked for me with anxiety and panic attacks.
It works! Takes the edge off of anxiety without addiction of medication. I highly recommend it to anyone avoiding overmedicating with perscription drugs.
I have severe anxiety disorder and at one point was put on narcotics. To wean me off of them my doctor suggested nerve tonic. Not only did it stop the horrible withdrawals but I continue to take it to control my anxiety. I just got home from a trip that required flying and couldn't do that without the nerve tonic.
Not a cure for anxiety but does take the edge off almost every time. Also useful for bed time when I can't relax
Stopped taking Prozac for anxiety tried this feel like myself again love it really helps
It works wonders.👍 However, it is better to buy the large pills, 30 pills bottle. I use this product occassionally when i can not deal with anxiety, after 2 pills and about 30 min i began to settle down. So far Hyland's Nerve Tonic has work everytime. Very satisfied.👍😀👌
Helpful for anxiety & allows sleep. No hangover effects or other other side effects I've noticed. Friend always takes for stress of flying.
I didn't realize I was order the tiny little tablets that dissolve when I ordered this but I like it just the same. Stress relief, anxiety relief, irritability relief...it helps with all of it! I have recommended this product countless times and I will continue to do so! As someone who has dealt with terrible anxiety, I promise this stuff WORKS!
I can't explain how homeopathy works, but it does. The effect is subtle, but with continued use this product is 90% as effective as the (addictive) prescription anti-anxiety medication I've used, without the downsides.
This stuff seriously works! No joke, be careful if taking with sleeping pills or meds/herbs that make you groggy. Great for high anxiety or sleep.
My 20 year old son suffers from anxiety and has panic attacks. These have really helped him. Glad I found these.
These are great! Really helped me with postpartum anxiety.
This stuff really works! I have struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life but have never wanted to take prescription medicine for it. I finally started taking SAM-e for my mood, which helped me tremendously. However, I still had some anxiety that I was having a hard time managing at work and I found Nerve Tonic and it has been a real blessing. These are little pellets that melt in your mouth; they have a bit of a chalky taste but not too bad. The directions say to take three to six at a time up to three times per day. At first, I was taking the maximum dosage but now I only take it as needed. There is not a dramatic feeling that can be described, only a nice calm good feeling.
Works very good for anxiety! Not so good for stress or mood enhancement.
I have both anxiety and depression. Prescription sleep aids either leave me feeling hung over and tired the next day or they never help me fall asleep. With this, I had the best sleep and felt like I actually slept heavily. I felt more relaxed and refreshed than I have in a while. It is worth a try especially if you have difficulty sleepin.
I have 3 kids , I give speeches , I'm in front of crowds a lot . I have 2 , sometimes 3 jobs and on top of all of that , I've always had anxiety and sleeping problems ... I needed a stress reliever, this helps when taken at the right time.
Always a go to for sleeplessness and anxiety... does relax you and helps calm you down naturally. Beware if you suffer from sleep paralysis, I have noticed that when I take anything that has a calming or sleep agent in it, that it prompts an episode... And I also don't take this if I have to be awake in a couple of hours because I don't think I will be able to wake up... so for example, take it if you have at least 4 hours until you have to wake up.
Before purchasing this product, I had suffered from anxiety attacks off and on for years, sometimes multiple times daily. I did not want to go the therapy/pharmaceutical route, so I endured the anxiety attacks for years before hearing about this product. The first time that I took this product, which is directed to be taken every 15 minutes until symptoms subside, I took two doses over 30 minutes. At this point in my history of anxiety attacks, I was having daily attacks. After taking Hyland's Nerve Tonic, I didn't have another anxiety attack for about 2 weeks. This pattern of milder, much less frequent attacks has held up now for about 4 months. I still have much more than half a bottle of 500 left. With the low cost, no side effects and no risk of overdose or addiction, it's definitely worth a shot.
I have been using this product for over 15 years! It calms me down in only 5 minutes. I continue to purchase. Used to buy at Whole Foods but now on Amazon, the only place I I can find it now. Totally recommend it to everyone as a natural alternative to any anxiety issues.
I suffer from anxiety and these really helped me! Take 6 when I wake up and stay laying down for a few minutes, seems to reduce my anxiety. Doesnt take it away and still need Clonazepam but I dont take as much and can wait to take it!! Have it on subscribe & save!! Try it you have nothing to lose!!
I have suffered from mild to severe anxiety for years, but I refuse to take Xanax or other strong medications because I didn't want to take something that would cause me to be dependent upon it. I have tried 5-HTP, L-theanine, St. Johns Wort, and Valerian Root. I felt so helpless and began to doubt that natural products could ever work. But once I came across this product at Walmart and haven't regretted it ever since! It instantly calms me and keeps my anxiety levels low. I feel like I can take on life without being afraid and sweating over the small stuff. I don't know what it is about this product that makes me feel so good, but I encourage anyone out there suffering from anxiety to please give this product a shot. It's such a terrible feeling to shop around and buy product after product that makes you feel no different. With this product, I feel so much more confident and able to live the calm, fearless life I unfortunately have to work 10x harder to have. I am specifically writing this review in hopes that someone will read this and give this product a try to take back their life from anxiety. Best wishes!
Works as described to calm anxiety.
I use this mostly to help me sleep. It shuts my mind off and lets me fall asleep. If I wake up in the middle of the night I can take it, fall right back asleep and there is no hang over in the morning. Also good for anxiety without making you too tired.
These are very mild and just take the edge off. They melt under your tongue. I try to keep a bottle around all the time.
WOW this is amazing. I have anxiety, nervousness and restlessness especially at night time. I was skeptical to buy this, but I am so glad I took the plunge. It takes off the edge and I feel like I can be more productive because I'm not worrying about being anxious. I also listen to hypnosis tapes at night for added comfort. It really helps..
Wife started taking this a few days ago and feels so much better. She says her stool is a bit looser than normal but it's totally worth it. We plan on purchasing this again.
Excellent product, greatly reduced vertigo and ear ringing. Also excellent for anxiety.
Was dealing with anxiety and frequent panic attacks. magnesium has helped out tremendously give it a try it won't hurt!!!
I have tried MANY MANY products for anxiety and brain fog...and this really improved both..would take in evenings though , it relaxes you....also helps with palpitations
I can say without a doubt that since taking this product / increasing magnesium levels, I know longer suffer with anxiety / panic attacks. I feel mentally balanced. For years I have experienced anxiety which on times elevated into a panic attack. I have a strong mind and had the ability to distract myself out of the attack but I always suspected there was something nutritionally / chemically out of balance. I workout - eat the best nutritional foods possible - take a multivitamin etc. I like to experiment and try new things - always looking for was to enhance my health. I started to read about all the benefits of magnesium. I purchased this product and started off slow over a few weeks slowing working my way up to 4 tablets - breakfast - lunch - dinner - bedtime. I noticed a change in the first few days - a feeling of calm but lots of energy when needed ( weight-lifting). I also started having dreams again ( as I got older it seems I didnt dream at all ) and deeper sleep. I can only explain it as I feel emotional balanced - calm - like floating on a raft in a summer day in a wave-less lake. Ive been on this product for a month or so and I can say I am 100% anxiety and panic free. Give it a shot if you have similar issues you have nothing to lose but a life changing result if it makes a difference for you.
This product has stopped a heart problem I've had for five years. After a heart operation I had ongoing pain and now it's gone (this was recommended by my cardiologist to try for relief). I also notice my constant anxiety I've had for 60 yrs is greatly reduced. (That is what aggravated my heart problem.)
I suspected I was deficient, and so don't mind taking a couple tablets more than the recommended dose (which is 4). Within a half hour, a fuzzy and warm sort of relaxation started, moving slowly from my head to feet. It felt as sudden and potent as some of the anxiety medication I used to take years ago. I'm all around calmer, able to process annoying life "happenings" with a balanced and thoughtful response, and have seen a huge increase in my muscular flexibility. I workout regularly, and this has been the perfect antidote to the tightness that can create.
Best magnesium supplement I've ever used. It was recommended to me for ADHD and I've been using it for about 5 years now and I can confidently say it is responsible for minimizing the effects of daily stress/anxiety and I sleep better. Alas, I have no idea if this is associated but I've noticed a pattern where I have less to no adult acne when I'm diligent about taking this twice a day. Lastly, I've experienced little to no loose bowel side effect when taking this twice a day unlike many other magnesium supplements (mainly drinkable/powder form).
These vitamins have been good for me on so many levels. Has helped with my metabolism, and my blood pressure is lower than it has been in the last 3 years. I bought these initially because I was having trouble sleeping and they have helped tremendously with that and my anxiety. I take 2 in the morning and 2 before bed at night. I will buy them again and also try other vitamins in this brand that I take regularly. I agree with other reviews they are quite big for swallowing, I take all of my vitamins with orange juice,
Bought this for sleep and anxiety, and this stuff helps ALOT. I was really surprised that something as simple as magnesium could change so much. I used to have such a hard time going to sleep, but now when I take magnesium 30 minutes to 1 hour before bed I find it hard keeping myself awake.
This stuff really works. I started having mild anxiety attacks that will make my heartbeat race, I was freaking out, never experience that before in my 37 years of life. I got prescribed Xanax and beta blockers but I refused to take that. I new everything was in my head and I had to be able to control it. After doing a lot of research i found out about magnesium being good for the heart and nervous system in general. I purchased this brand and problem solved. I have done a lot of relaxation as well but this has helped me tremendously. I'm more calm now, feel stronger and very energetic. I take 400mg a day with food.
Great for menstrual health, helps balance hormones that cause PMS. It has lightened my periods, stopped cramps and headaches, balanced moods and helped with anxiety. Great product.
These have helped my anxiety (I only take 2 a day) a lot and they cause stomach issues like other brands I've tried.
I am now on my second bottle. I am a huge Amazon fan but seldom write reviews. This HAS to have a review from me though. I kid you not when I say I feel as though it has saved my life. This is going to be a bit winded, but bare with me.
I give these 5 stars for the effects. It keeps anxiety low and a better focus when either studying and or clear thinking. Really helps with socializing more. The only thing I disagree with this is the magnesium stearate or stearic acid in the other ingredient section. But everything else is great.
This was the first time I used this brand and I absolutely love it! I'm sure my body is benefiting from it in many ways but I am most impressed with reduced anxiety (and I'm pretty sure my family appreciates it as well). With this formulation I find myself to be more calm, relaxed and even tempered. I have not experienced any negative side effect. I intend to purchase this again!
I bought this product due to my anxiety, tireness, and low energy. So far I'm doing good, more energy, happier. I love it.
I've been taking this for slightly over a year, and it has definitely helped me maintain my stress and anxiety levels. I take the minimum required and exercise 5 out of 7 days, and have minimum issues. This is without any form of anxiety medication. Now my anxiety levels are probably more controlled than others, but I still stand by this product.
I read that taking this supplement may help with falling and staying asleep. I had been having some slight anxiety and trouble sleeping for the past few months. I have only taken this for two days, but both nights I slept like a rock. I woke up feeling slightly groggy, but it really made a difference in how soundly I slept. I didn't wake up once during the night, either. I highly recommend this product! I was obviously magnesium deficient and this helped way more than the cheap magnesium oxide that I bought from the grocery. I take 2 right before bed. I may switch to 1 tonight, so that I feel a little brighter in the morning. Do note that these are huge pills and may be difficult to swallow for some people.
Haven't been able to feel much difference, I got this for my anxiety and I do believe it will work, if it does I will be back to give 5 stars. Te pills though are very large!!
I added this to my supplement stack to help with mild anxiety, sleep, and post-workout muscle relief.
Quality product! Found this on Labdoor.com which tests certain products for quality...purity, truth of label, etc. This brand had a great rating and you can't beat the price! I started taking this magnesium for depression and anxiety after researching and discovering a lack of magnesium can cause symptoms of depression and anxiety. It has worked wonders for me, giving me an overall general sense of well- being in life. I ran out a couple weeks ago, and hadn't been able to reorder, and I can tell a big difference already, with depressive feelings and anxiety creeping back up. Fortunately, I was able to reorder today, so hopefully I'll be back on track soon!
Two in the morning two at bedtime. They work great very easy on the stomach. I had very bad anxiety many years, and in the pass had to take Paxil. I could honestly say this magnesium supplement works. At least for me. I highly recommend this product give it at try. Btw it got reed of my restless legs.
Works very well for me. I bought it to help with my anxiety, and it does help to keep me calm. It may not work for everyone but, I have noticed a big difference.
I've been using this for about a week to reduce anxiety, alongside Tranquiliene. I started taking the magnesium a few days before the other supplement, and I definitely noticed a change. I felt calmer and more relaxed after just a few days! But the other side effect I noticed was that when I took 2 in the AM and 2 in the PM, I ended up having too much energy to sleep!! So I dropped back to just 1 in the morning for now, and we'll see if I can work up to 2 in the AM and not keep me up at night. It does seem to give me extra energy throughout the day which is a nice bonus.
Good stuff help my anxiety
I had digestive issues with this product. It caused me some bathroom discomfort. I've since switch to another product that is a slow release and includes some B vitamins. That product also causes me stomach discomfort as well but not as bad. I'm taking Magnesium for anxiety. Both products that I have tried in the last few weeks have helped immensely with my anxiety!
My son is on the autism spectrum and suffers from anxiety, adhd, and middle insomnia, where he wakes up around 2 or 3 am and cannot get back to sleep for hours. If he wakes up at four am, he pretty much is awake for the day. As lack of sleep is a trigger for behavioral issues and adequate sleep is necessary for general health and well-being, you can imagine we're desperate to help him. We've tried (and he is still taking) melatonin to help him get to sleep but that doesn't do anything for sustained sleep. I read that magnesium can help with adrenal fatigue which I think he's got. After starting magnesium supplementation (around 100mg before bed but adults usually take way more), he's getting a solid 8-9 hours of sleep most nights and mostly sleeps through the night. He could use more sleep since he's a gradeschooler but I'll take what I can get and him NOT running literally screaming into my room at 2am 4 nights a week and then being awake with the kid is 100% worth the fifteen bucks or whatever it is I paid for this bottle.
I have been using Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium for over two years now. It has been the best addition to my daily vitamins. I feel incredibly relaxed an hour after consumption, and as someone prone to debilitating anxiety and panic, I have no reason to ever stop using this product.
Helps with anxiety and sleep
This product has been great for my hypertension and anxiety. The only problem I have is the size of the pill. It got stuck in my throat a few times, even when cut in half, so I have to chew it now and it tastes so unpleasant! I've figured out a way to get it down without tasting it too much, but it does make me gag sometimes. I've tried other chewable magnesiums, but they weren't glycinate and didn't work even close to as well for me with regards to anxiety relief. I considered liquids but I need something I can keep in my purse since I take one dose mid-day. I'll continue taking this one since it works so well for me, but have my eyes open for a chewable alternative.
I purchased this product for help with unrelenting heart palpitations and anxiety. I get heart palpitations a lot, some days non-stop. When I feel them, my body responds by releasing adrenaline (because I tend to subconsciously fear them), which in turn, causes more palpitations. It's an exhausting cycle that I could not stop. I was anxious all day, every day and was looking for help. I read that magnesium might help so I gave this a try. I had previously tried calcium oxide and it did not work. I began taking two pills (one morning, one night) per day to start but found it wasn't enough. Within a week, I began taking two pills in the morning and one at night. I was amazed how well it worked and how quickly it worked. It didn't completely stop my palpitations but I had them much less and when I did get them, I didn't feel them as much and my body didn't respond by releasing adrenaline. Without the noticeable palpitations, I no longer had the anxiety cycle and I could finally relax. I found that when I exercise, I feel them more so I take an extra pill. I'm not sure if it gets sweated out with exercise but the extra pill seems to help. I didn't have any side effects at all. I highly recommend this product for anyone with palpitations and anxiety. This is the best I have felt in the many years I have dealt with anxiety.
It may be hard to swallow for some but it is worth it for all! I no longer get those terrible cramps in my calf muscle or my foot in the middle of the night. I even give them to my children to help them relax and buffer anxiety. Also I have not noticed any negative side effects like I did with the magnesium oxide.
I have borderline high blood pressure. I take two in the morning and two at night. It helps keep my BP in a normal range and it also helps with my anxiety and restless legs. Only complaint I have which is in line with everyone else is they are HUGE but I get them cause they are the best.
After suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for 7 years, I finally stumbled upon infocrmation about magnesium deficiency. I did my research and decided to order this because it's easily absorbed and easier on the tummy. I am so grateful for this product because it stopped my panic attacks completely! However, I can't take the recommended dosage because it causes a lot of bloating and stomach pain. I have a very sensitive stomach, though, and this doesn't appear to be a problem for most people. I take 1 pill in the morning on an empty stomach and then I drink Natural Calm at night. If you have panic disorder or anxiety, I recommend trying this product!
I have been taking this along with the magnesium oil. I honestly think the oil does better and I use it on my kids as well. I have epilepsy and severe anxiety so it’s a must to take magnesium around the clock. I also work out/ loft weights and do therapy for scoiliosis so pulled/sore muscles need magnesium in many forms just to insure your getting it. I also make sure I take it with all fat soluble vitamins D, A with calcium too and K if I have it for proper absorption for bones and skin.
I normally take ReMag (by Dr. Carolyn Dean) for anxiety, which works wonders almost immediately, but it is kind of expensive and tastes absolutely atrocious. I was looking for a cheaper brand of liquid ionic magnesium but couldn't find one that I could trust (apparently most of them on the market have high levels of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium). This particuar brand of magnesium is not liquid or ionic, but has a pretty good absorption rate (from my understanding), had a good review on Labdoor, and was very affordable. I decided to give it a try, and so far they seem to be working. I don't see an immediate decrease in my anxiety like I do with ReMag (for example, if I am having bad anxiety/on the verge of panic, I take a shot of magnesium mixed with lemon juice and water, and within the hour I feel like I can handle life again), but if I take these regularly they seem to keep the anxiety down to a manageable level. I notice that they do help me stay "regular" in the bathroom department. If you are on the looser end of the spectrum, these may not be the choice for you (but in my circumstance, they make things just right, haha). One downside is that they are kind of big pills, so if you have trouble swallowing pills, you may not want to go this route.
I was having terrible anxiety, I heard that it may be caused by a magnesium deficiency. I was all like no way! I have never heard of such a thing. Well I hate doctors so I gave it a try. Wow was I surprised! It made my anxiety very manageable and got rid of all my panic attacks. I have since recommended this to every single person I know that may be suffering from anxiety. It also helped my sleep cycle.
Simply the best! My heart rate and anxiety are under control. Buying more now! No upset stomach!
This is a very calming magnesium that works quickly. I had some problems with scary dreams at first but that went away and now just have vivid dreams that don't bother me. I seem to sleep deeper and it helps manage my anxiety.
Excellent. I noticed a difference after the first use. I take two during dinner, and I noticed less waking up at night with anxiety. They are easy to digest, and two tablets don't seem to cause any kind of "overload".
I try to take a B-complex and two of these at night most days. That combination is really great for keeping anxiety/stress at bay. Helps me feel a lot better.
Helped a lot with sleeping at night and anxiety a bit. Had to continuously take it for the effect though and it gave watery bowels several times
This works really well for me, it helps my anxiety a great deal. I will always take these from now on.
These magnesium pills appear to help with sleep and anxiety. I've had no adverse effects with taking these supplements.
I started taking these magnesium pills because I deal with anxiety and anxiety attacks. I have been taking them for more than a month. I started off by taking 1 at bed time, and now I take 2 before bed. I have noticed since I started taking them that my overall anxious feelings and susceptibility to anxiety attacks have significantly decreased. I would wholeheartedly recommend these to anyone who suffers from anxiety.
My general Dr. told me that achy muscles, anxiety, being tired & my heart palipitations were part of my peri-menopausal symptoms & anxiety (GA) and put me on a mild antidepressant. I didn't like the side effects of the antidepressants and went off of them and dealt with the symptoms I listed for months.... My husband mentioned that we had not had our magnesium in quite some time and that we should start taking them again. Started Dr's Best and within DAYS my heart palipitations were GONE, and within 2 weeks of taking them started noticing extra energy and I am less achy especially in the mornings. Less anxiety now too!! We both take 1 in the morning and 1 at night. He is less achy as well. LOVE this product!!! We swear by it! Highly recommend!!!
I love this form of Magnesium, it works. Plain and simple. No stomach issues. Lowers my anxiety. Better night sleep. The only complaint I have is that the pills are huge. I have to cut them in half. Wish they made them smaller or in gel form. Can't live without these supplements.
Got this for my daughter and I both suffer from sleeplessness and anxiety. Two of thes a night and my daughter says she now sleeps through the night. I also sleep much better and my anxiety is much better.
So far I'm liking these. Every other magnesium product I have tried (other glycinate brands, malate... ALL gave me diarrhea pretty quickly. This hasn't upset my stomach at all. Hoping that it will help to calm my nerves and help ease my anxiety. Fingers crossed.
I bought this because I couldn't stop licking back of bottom front teeth. They worked for a short period but the licking never fully went away. I could be because I'm on an antipsychotic that raises serotonin and I tried another one and its withdrawal gave me the tongue licking and anxiety. I also bought it for insomnia due to medications. Reason being three stars because it is so hard to swallow. My fish oil capsules are bigger but softer smoother and they go down easily.
This product worked great for my anxiety for about two weeks. Then it stopped being effective. I found out from another website that if you have anxiety from adrenal fatigue, then too much magnesium can backfire and make you feel worse than before. I have come off of all magnesium until I get my adrenal function back to normal. However, I must say that this magnesium did calm me and help me significantly for a time. I expect to be able to use it occasionally in the future as needed.
I have suffered for years with chronic neck pain and stiffness so bad that I could not even function. I had tried everything from prescription medications to muscle rubs and nothing seemed to help long term. After a couple of days taking this twice a day I started seeing some relief. This is truly a God send for me finding this. Also have suffered from anxiety for years as well, I can tell a much calmer me.
My husband and I cut most processed foods from our diet. When cutting foods that have been fortified with vitamins and minerals some people end up with some mineral deficiencies. Magnesium was one of mine and it was horrible. I started to develop some anxiety, depression, brain fog, sleeplessness, irritability as well as a few other less than desirable ailments. Upon going some research I decided I was probably lacking some magnesium (as well as iodide, sodium, potassium).
I've been taking this along with a 2000 UI vitamin D3 supplement for a week now and am no longer having panic attacks. I had this weird thing where my head would shake when I would make eye contact with someone for more than a few seconds, also when I would raise my head to take a sip from a drink. I've taken both vitamin d3 and magnesium before by themselves, never the two together, but then read you should always take the two together because magnesium helps with the side effects of vitamin d3. I can actually notice the effects now.. If you don't get a lot of sunlight, take vitamin D with this, one of the best supplements you can take.. I get practically no sunlight so that might be the reason i'm noticing the effects so quick
Great Product and speedy delivery. Does wonders for anxiety with no laxative effect from Doctor's Best Chelated Magnesium.
Attached photos, left is new bottle (May) and right is old (January).
This magnesium is the only one I have been able to take that doesn't seem to bother my digestive system. I take it at night and it seems to help me sleep better and it has helped with daytime anxiety. There was a noticeable difference after just a few days. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I do have a hard time swallowing the pills, they are big.
I was a little skeptical that something as simple as magnesium would be so useful. I have been taking this for 3 months now. Originally, I couldn't take two pills at once because it would make me incredibly sleepy. Now, I'm up to about 3 a day and will probably go up to 4 next month. This has helped me so much. I have always thought of myself as a very anxious person. I'm in grad school, and the stress can get crazy. After about 4 weeks of taking this, my anxiety levels have lowered to a manageable level. In fact, I'm not really getting stressed like I used to at all! Highly recommend for anxiety!
I notice a huge difference when I take this supplement and don't. I have pcos and know it's one the vitamins I have severely deficient in but surprisingly many people are. Suffering from depression and anxiety I feel better when I take magnesium. Epsom salt baths are also helpful in addition to this.
All I can say is if you have anxiety or mental health issues of any kind I would HIGHLY recommend taking two of these at night, every night. There is a massive noticeable difference in my mental health when I stop taking these. please give this a shot!
I bought these for my high blood pressure. I noticed after about three weeks that I was not feeling as flushing in the mornings as I had been. I don't check my BP regularly because I get anxiety just from checking it but I am feeling much better.
Arrived in time and exalt as expected. I've been taking this to see if it helps with anxiety any differently or better than there supplements I can get at my local pharmacy. Much to my surprise, it does seem to help me without any of the awful side effects I experienced with other kids of magnesium I've used.
This stuff is amazing. I feel so calm during the day now. I struggle with intense anxiety and these really help. I take 2 each morning.
I swear, I have been calmer after taking these. I typically take 40G daily of an anti-anxiety/depressant...and have been able to cut that in half after using magnesium consistently...with no change to my moods/feelings/ability to deal with life....
I need to take magnesium daily for anxiety/blood pressure as well as migraines, as it helps with both of those (according to my doctor). However I have IBD and any other form of magnesium gave me "the runs" because it's a laxative. So magnesium chelate was recommended to me. This stuff is awesome. It's formulated to have minimal laxative effect and absorbs very well. I take 2 a day and it's worked wonderfully for me! It's pretty cheap too compared to some other brands, and doesn't have a bunch of junk added to it. :)
I ordered this because it's the best type of magnesium to get. I researched it first. According to John Bergman (well respected nutrition expert and chiropractor--look him up on YouTube), many heart attacks are not the result of "high cholesterol and high blood pressure" but rather a magnesium deficiency. In most cases after a patient has had a heart attack magnesium is administered. Interesting! I no longer trust the pharmaceutical industry, which controls it's own so-called studies as well as most of our congress. I feel good since I've been taking this stuff. It helps with all kinds of problems, anxiety, sleep disorders, facial tics, muscle cramps and many more things that we experience as the result of poor diet.
Ive been using this product for a month and it has practically changed my life! Ive been battling horrible anxiety and slight depression for the past 3 months! I've had a total of 3 panic attacks, constant nervousness, heart palpitations and just very uneasy at the thought of being out of my house. It got so bad that i was even prescribed Xanax, which i decided not to take! I'm not into taking any meds so i was looking for a more natural remedy, then i came across this after doing much research on anxiety. I thought id give it a try..why not! What did i have to loose? After taking these for a week i saw a major difference. I barely have anxiety anymore, and I almost feel like my normal self again! I could finally be out and not be nervous! These pills keep me calm, gives me a goods nights rest with dreams and an overall great feeling! I started taking 400mg then upped it to 600mg/day! Its made such a difference in my life that I recommend them to anyone I know battling anxiety or depression! Try it! You don't have anything to lose! Also a lot of people complain about the size, but to me not bad at all! It's the same size of some vitamin pills I've taken, and it goes down easily!
I honestly feel that this has helped with mild anxiety and occasional migraines.
I love using Magnesium lotion, but when I don't want to mess with it I take these pills. They are perfect for aches and pains and I also use them when I am stressed or down.
I had a very traumatic experience that caused me to have anxiety. I found out that magnesium is an aid for this problem. I bought this product, and have been taking it religiously for about 2 years now, twice a day. It helped very much, and when I didn't take it, I noticed it. I researched magnesium quite a bit, and found this one with very positive feedback and ratings. I will not be without it now. There is a lot of magnesium out there that is sub-standard, and when I tried some of it, the results were diarrhea and a waste of time and money. This is the only one I will buy. Hope this helps for anyone searching.
Wow, where to begin. I bought this mainly for hormonal issues that I couldn't figure out. I sorted those out (don't remember if thanks to this or what) and I forgot about these pills for like a year. I had a traumatic event in the summer of 2017 that totally got me out of whack, it's been HELL ever since June of 2017. Constant anxiety, despair, depression, crying every day, etc...
Out of nowhere I started getting heart palpitations and if you've experienced this the anxiety that comes with it is borderline unbearable especially when you don't know what's wrong. I tried to cut back on caffeine, chocolates, and sugar but still daily I would get the palpitations. I couldn't even exercise anymore because they would come out of nowhere. I found a doctor named Sanjay Gupta on YouTube, if you type in Sanjay Gupta magnesium on YouTube you can find him, he explained how magnesium helps your heart and palpitations. I never take any supplements or pills so I was hesitant to even try it and weeks went by and it was just getting too unbearable with the palpitations so I finally gave in and bought it and then I let it sit on the counter forever because the pills are pretty big.
Coincidentally just as this arrived in the mail, I was having an anxiety attack. I felt weak and weird, and my heart was racing. I just took 2 capsules of this and within 15 minutes it was gone. I still felt a little off as I usually do afterwards, but the attack went away as effective as my actual anxiety medication that I take. It makes the physical symptoms disappear. I haven't had an anxiety or panic attack since, I don't usually get them frequently, but when I do it sucks. So far this is really great.
Your reasons for coming across this product are probably varied. One thing you may have found frustrating was trying to determine which type of magnesium (atomic symbol for magnesium is Mg) is right for you (there are over 20 magnesium variations and I researched them all). From the very basic (Mg) hydroxide (often used in products to aid in clearing constipation...think Milk of Magnesia) to this finest form of (Mg), Magnesium Glycinate (Mg that has undergone a chelating process with another chemical compound, lysinate). So what does this mean to you?
I've suffered from migraines my whole life, and recently have had issues with anxiety and elevated blood pressure levels from time to time. I didn't think this product was going to work but I can honestly say this has improved my day to day life. I've been migraine free for a month and it takes a lot for me to start feeling symptoms of anxiety. I will definitely keep purchasing this.
This magnesium supplement is amazing! I bought it because I'd read that this is a form that is well absorbed. I have been suffering from symptoms of magnesium deficiency including very painful muscle cramps, anxiety, difficulty with sleeping, and more. I have been taking this supplement for a week or so now and have noticed a dramatic improvement in my symptoms. I can't even explain how happy I am to have found this product. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good quality magnesium supplement.
calming, aids sleep and counteracts withdrawal anxiety from medication tapering
Helped my wife with anxiety.
-I don't know how I managed without it. It is amazing for sleep, also calms down the jaw clenching/grinding. Also, if you've had too much coffee or energy drinks, it'll calm down the tension/anxiety.
Initially got this to see if it would impact my fasting blood glucose number. No change which was a little disappointing BUT I found taking this has made a significant difference to my anxiety and my pmdd.
Def helps to make me feel more relaxed. And helps to lower blood pressure, helps with anxiety
This really seems to help with blood sugar and blood pressure and with feelings of anxiety. I really appreciate this product.
I have been taking this for my anxiety and haven't had a panic attack or really bad anxiety in 2 weeks. My husband takes it at night and no longer wakes up with back pain!
I love doctor's best. I think they are without a doubt one of the highest quality, most effective brands available out there. They are 100% natural always and they use the best ingredients available. This magnesium has changed my life for the better, it's really that simple. Less anxiety and better sleep.
I have been taking this product for 4 days now. Very noticeable results. Immediate decrease in low-level anxiety. Better overall mood. Deeper sleep. Muscles feel stronger. Legs feel less shaky. My mind feels stronger, if that makes sense. I am waiting to see if I experience improvement with blood sugar regulation. It seems like today I felt less sugar craving, but will have to take the product for a longer period of time to know for sure.
This helps a lot with my daily energy levels. I have chronic fatigue. My muscles don’t feel tired during the day. (I don’t exercise) My legs aren’t restless at night. My anxiety is down. And I get a good night sleep. I take a sleeping pill at night and am concidering getting off it because I think the mag will work just as well.
This is the best magnesium to buy. It helps with sleeping and anxiety. Do not buy the stuff with Magnesium oxide in it. Magnesium Oxide does not work in the body.
I've been taking these for about 2 weeks and I can feel the difference already. I'm typically an anxious person and have the occasional insomnia. However, after taking these supplements I've been feeling a huge difference in my mood. It's a natural calm. I take it twice a day and surely has helped me. Would really reccommend it!
My husband start having anxiety attacks after being put on Blood Pressure meds. The doctor prescribed Xanax for this anxiety attacks which my husband wanted no dealings with due to them being addictive and the long list of side effects. After doing some research he learned that a magnesium deficiency causes anxiety attacks. This brand of magnesium was what he asked for after reading the reviews. After about two weeks of being on the magnesium he was able to completely quit taking the Xanax and has not had an anxiety attack in about a year since taking Doctor's Best Magnesium.
Most relaxing supplement you can buy. Magnesium is used for over 400 funtions in your body. This product is the highest quality you can find and is the easiest form to be absorbed in your body. I use this product for anxiety and heart palpitations. Been on it for two years and it's made a world of difference. I can't go a day without it and will be taking this product for the rest of my life. Most Americans are deficient in the mineral and your twice as likely to die without it. Deficient symtoms include panic attacks, anxiety, foggy brain, muscle spasms, heart palpitations and irritability. That's just some symtoms. I don't know why more doctors aren't recommending this to there patients it's unbelievable what this stuff does for you. If you have anxiety or heart problems YOU NEED MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE!!!
I take two twice a day and carry one or two in my purse for emergencies. My husband takes two each morning. I have suffered from migraines for years, both my husband and I suffer from ptsd related anxiety. My doctor recommended magnesium supplementation and this brand. I’ve only made the mistake of running out once and purchased another brand in between, never again. This brand keeps everything in check for us and I’m so grateful we found it.
I deal with a lot of anxiety this product certainly helps and I sleep like a rock
I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia so I have been living with pain for a long time. My doctor recommended that I try Magnesium. I did but felt no different. I go back to the doctor without any relief and she asks me what kind of Magnesium. I'm sorry, what? Guess I should have paid more attention to her reference sheet that said Magnesium Glycinate. I went back and ordered Doctor's Best.
I was debating the various forms of Magnesium, but this one seemed to hit an ideal price point. One of my major issues was falling asleep at night as I was attempting to diagnose the causes to my anxiety. I've noticed that if I take this magnesium before work meetings in small areas or a little while before bed, my anxiety is significantly reduced. This was my primary reason for purchasing this product and it has solved my needs. I cannot speak for the other types of Magnesium, but if you have a similar issue with anxiety, I believe this will work for you.
This is the only thing that has really ever helped me with my anxiety I take two at night and two in the morning. Iv done a lot of research on magnesium and this one is by far the best.
This has literally changed my life! No more paralyzing anxiety, chronic pain, muscle spasms, or insomnia. If you suffer with depression and/or anxiety, no matter how bad it is, TRY THIS! It is a game changer. Wish I found out sooner…and I’m a physician!!!
I got this for anxiety, recommended by someone. It really does help. I notice I'm sleeping much better. Glad I bought it.
First time I ever took it was this morning.. I've heard nothing but good things abt it so I wanted to see if I feel better once it gets into my system.. I didn't feel any different except abt 3-4PM I started getting kind of dizzy (light-headed) for abt an hour or so.. Is that common?? I'm still going to take it, I want to see if it causes me to relax from my anxiety filled days. Please let me know if anybody else has ever felt that way.. Thanks!!
I purchased this on March 7, 2017, and it is now March 14, 2017. The difference I feel in 1 week is extraordinary.
This is the best magnesium I have ever used. I work at a health food store so I have tried many kinds, even brands that are more expensive like pure encapsulation. These are BY FAR the best. If I could only take one supplement, it would be this. Why? It cured my migraines, ADD, mild anxiety and mild insomnia. If I ever feel a headache coming on, I take two and if is gone almost instantly. I also take these whenever I get a headache from too much sodium or from MSG/yeast extract (which I avoid but it isn't always labeled, especially at restaurants) and it instantly stops my headache from becoming a migraine. I will continue to take this as long as Dr. Best makes it! I'm more than 100% satisfied.
I’ve been jumping through hoops to get my protracted withdrawals under control and I’ve tried just about all Magnesium’s and I can say, the chelated Glycinate is the “Natural Xanax” one for anxiety, sleep, mood, and “mental health”. I can’t imagine how many people are addicted to antidepressants/benzos when they’re clearly are just not getting magnesium.
