I'm an RN (ICU) and had been hesitant about trying this. Over the course of the last 6 to 8 months, I've been under more work related and personal stress. I began having night sweats, waking up between 2 and 4 in the morning, binge eating with carbs and sweets, gaining abdominal weight along with irritability. My labs were normal (cortisol, thyroid testing). I decided to try this and I am so glad I did. I wish I had been taking it for the 5 months it sat on my shelf. Literally within 2 days, I could tell the difference. I take 1 tablet (100 mg) with breakfast and another 12 hours later with dinner. I've stopped sweating at night, have started sleeping longer and my mood is much better and I'm no longer binge eating. I find myself much more content during the day and not walking around tense and feeling high strung. I have since ordered 2 more bottles now that I realize I'm not having any adverse side effects, and this product is actually working for me. I definitely think I needed the timed release version and 1 tablet is time released over 12 hours, hence me taking it every 12 hours. I've always worked out, but had been discouraged. Now that I've added this product to my daily regimen, I'm up early in the morning for my work out and have finally started losing weight again. Amazing.....!
I've had problems with binge eating for years, but am not willing to take prescription anti-depressants anymore (which is the only thing MDs ever suggested to me) because I don't actually think I'm depressed. This supplement provides me with energy throughout the day and a much stronger sense of when I'm actually hungry for food vs. bored, anxious, lonely, tired, etc. When I take this supplement regularly, I am more committed to my yoga practice and other physical activities. So it helps me optimize my food and movement.
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!
tried this product as a last resort for mood stabilizer & binge eating. i read all customer reviews before making this choice & did some on line research about it as well. since my husband passed away, i have been having problems with the previously mentioned problems as well as panic attacks & a horrible sense of doom. i realize this is part of the grieving process for many but it has been almost 2 years & was hoping these problems would be winding down. i have never suffered with emotional issues so this is particularly difficult to comprehend. dr's answer is antidepressant &/or some kind of narcotic which seems like a band aid rather than a solution. so with all this in mind, i tried this product, taking one when i awaken. am not fully into a week yet & am seeing positive results so i am very hopeful. have noticed i am not on the verge of tears all the time & my binge eating is more manageable though not quite eliminated. i am sleeping better & not waking up with a full blown panic attack. just to not feel like crying all the time is reason enough to continue. still i am reserving 5 stars to see if i get a stronger result with each day i continue use. there is always room for improvement. i will amend my rating if need be with an update if necessary.
This product has improved my mood and sleep considerably. I feel less hungry during the day as well. I wanted to try this to curb my impulsive binge eating and after taking this product for a week I have not had any episodes even after certain things that would normally trigger a binge.
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 struggle with depression and I tend to over eat to cope with it. I did some research and came across 5-HTP and thought this may help me with both of these issues. Originally I started taking one pill with breakfast and one pill with lunch and didn't notice much of a difference. I realized that I tend to feel most down at night, and that's when I generally over eat. I began taking one pill in the late afternoon and one pill with dinner. Since doing that, I feel less stressed at night, tend to eat less, and sleep better. In combination with walking and watching what I eat, I have lost 5 lbs since taking 5-HTP. It's not magic, but it definitely takes the edge off and helps me feel more stable.
I suffered from insomnia and binge eating so when I read the claims on this product I thought it would be a perfect fit. I noticed a drastic reduction in my appetite (which is a good thing for me!) and I was sleeping better at night! Will definitely be purchasing again!
Luv the 200 mgs !... excellent product! great for that Pause you need before one opens ones mouth :) also great for Weight loss! stops the binge eating!
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...
This is the right Chromium to finally put a stop to your binge eating at night. Night time cravings are known to increase weight and this Chromium sensitizes cell receptors to the effect of insulin allowing them to absorb already circulating sugar in your blood, thus avoiding hunger. Did you know that Sumo wrestlers eat bowls of rice before going to sleep to gain their incredible weight? Do yourself a favor and buy this. An inferior quality chromium picolinate from the local pharmacy won't work, in fact, those cheap ones might make you gain weight. You see, with Chromium it is either the quality stuff or nothing. If you value your health, no... your life, then you will try this.
This product is really awesome.. Helps me from binge eating.
5-HTP is used for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, migraine and tension-type headaches, fibromyalgia, binge eating associated with obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and along with prescription drugs to treat seizure disorder and Parkinson's disease.

I have a significant problem with appetite control and weight gain, I have tried over the counter dietary supplements and I have been unhappy with the unwanted side effects. I have tried Klamath for a while now and I am happy with the results, I have reduced cravings while taking the supplement and I have had less instances of binge eating. I fully recommend this product to anyone looking for holistic weight management / appetite control that does not want the side effects of chemical based alternatives.
I decided to try this to help me sleep and to regulate my appetite. I'd been having trouble with binge eating and was not sleeping well for months so I figured why not try this. I went with what another review said and gave it a couple weeks. The first week it made me a little nauseous but nothing too serious, and that went away. After about 2-3 weeks it definitely works!! I feel better during the day, and I am not craving sweets and over eating like I used to! Now that being said, this is not an appetite suppressant, it just helps you feel satisfied when you eat so you are less likely to overeat. When I went on vacation for two weeks I forgot the pills and man I started having intense sugar cravings and over eating again. When I got home I started the pills again and I'm feeling back to normal. They don't make you feel like medication does, you just feel better. It's awesome, I definitely recommend!
I was trying to get into a study for a binge eating disorder. They instructed me that my blood glucose was too high and I needed to come back to do a fasting blood test again two weeks later. I failed. At that point I didn't know what to do this was back in January. By February I listen to my brother and ordered nutriflair Ceylon cinnamon.
This is awesome for weight loss, I have extremely bad habit of binge eating and with this no more of it. I don't feel hungry anymore. I have lost 7 lbs first month, can't believe. Awesome!
