NOW products are always reliable, and even though the caplets are rather large, they are easy to take.
It simply works much less well than others. Some of the reviews describe using very large doses to be successful. That indicates that it is not very effective. I used the Now tryptophan capsules last year and found that I needed about 3 capsules (500 mg) to get the same effect as with 2 capsules from the better brands. In a moment of poor judgement I bought some of these tablets. They are even worse. (There have been allegations that Now tryptophan is from China and is of poorer quality. I don't know if that is true, and whether that is the reason these don't work well.)
To get tryptophan (other brands) to work well, I have found that it helps to take them with a little of something sweet to aid in the tryptophan absorption. I have a bag of raisins in my bedside table, and when I awake in the night I take two tryptophan capsules and a half-dozen or so raisins. In 20 to 30 minutes the tryptophan then kicks in and acts as a gentle sleeping aid.

This is a very good quality L-tryptophan but a price is quite high when comparing other brands. It does help in relaxation but I will not purchase any more because of the price. Read morePublished 9 days ago by James Adamek
