Itís a nasty cycle Iíve seen many friends go through. When I use supplements that lower cortisol I tend to feel tired and mentally not as sharp. However, I can also admit that cortisol lowering is likely only one part of the various supplements that Iíve used. The similar sides could be completely coincidental in terms of them all lowering cortisol to some degree. Perhaps they also affect serotonin receptors or change the pharmacokinetics or something else Iím taking? There are too many variables to blame everyone on one overlapping factor. If people would understand this concept they would save a lot of time, money, and ironically stress (oh no not extra cortisol from some mild daily stressors) . And letís not even go near the ďyouíre fat because of all the parasites in your gut so buy my cleanse and youíll drop ten lbs of parasite and stool weight..I mean errrr fatĒ LOL
    Well said.

Even 1-2 a day is giving you a guaranteed quantified amount of it's NGF actives. With others you have no idea if they have any hericenones at all and could be doing nothing.
    Helpful advice. Let's give it a try...

    I want to try with 2g. Is there any side effect?

Also, does guarana not have caffeine? I️ read that they can have 2-4.5% caffeine, which is only ~10mg caffeine, but this is an extract, so can have more or less. Do that claim caffeine free?
    Helpful data so far!

    I would differ by person but I'd say none. If u use it to fall asleep. Otherwise might find sleepiness as side effect.

    I've ordered the 120x500mg caps now and will see how it goes from 1g per day dosed about half an hour before bed.

    Right, I've run 1g of Tryptophan half an hour before bed now for a solid four weeks. The only thing I've noticed is that it's harder to get moving in the morning, like, I've felt more "groggy" and slow when I wake up if that makes sense. No actual improvements in sleep quality or amount of solid sleep.
    I don't know whether to keep running it and hope it gets better or to just sack it off and not re-order. What do you think @muscleupcrohn ?

    Hmm... that's probably going to be a personal thing. If you don't feel like you're getting anything out of it after weeks of use, then I suppose it's just not for you. Are you using it to help you fall asleep faster? If so, is it helping with that? If not, then I suppose it just isn't for you. If you're looking for something to improve sleep quality and/or how you feel in the morning, try taking 3g glycine and/or 500mg l-ornithine HCL before bed. I don't think either of them would make you feel groggy in the morning at all.

    Falling asleep is no issue...Staying awake however is a different story. I don't usually feel groggy, this has only been an issue since I started my L-Tryptophan trial. I was using it to help improve mood throughout the day, on the theory of by improving sleep quality it will help me feel more "Up" during the day. But it hasn't effected my mood in any way what so ever. But as you said, mayber it just isn't for me.

    Ok. If you were using it in hopes of improving day-time mood as a result of improved sleep quality, and itís not working, Iíd just stop taking it. Have you tried glycine and/or ornithine? They could help improve sleep quality and shouldnít make you feel groggy or anything. Theyíre both cheap too.
