L-Tryptophan 3 5 3 4
A Taste Disappointment I expected to use this powder in water for larger tryptophan doses per day. I have tasted glucosamine sulfate, which is pleasant as a powder, but the tryptophane powder is rather bitter, and I think I will throw away the bottle. September 16, 2013
buy the pills not the powder very disappointed with the powder. doesn't mix well with water, clumpy, tastes awful. I got the powder hoping it would absorb faster, but it is quite unpleasant to take in this form. buy pills instead! May 27, 2012
Good product I bought this Tryptophan to help me sleep. It was more economical to buy the powder than pills. However, I never feel like I'm able to get a consistent dose. But it does help me sleep. I'll order this again. April 3, 2012
