Works well

I take this in the middle of the night to help me fall back into lala land. I use about 1/2 t of this and about 1t of Swanson inositol powder.. Before bed I mix them in a small container. When I wake up in the middle of the night I dump them directly into the gullet and chase with water.

helpful for sleep

I've used l-tryptophan for many years and much prefer this newer powder form than the caps. It's on my nightstand so it is handy when I have interrupted nights. I put a small amount of water on a tablespoon with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of the product. No mixing or stirring - just a good drink of water and soon I'm back to sleep.

Glad to find this powder

Yes, this powder is somewhat bitter, as other reviewers mentioned, but it is a lot less bitter than another brand I was using. I think that is just the taste of L-Tryptophan. I am grateful to find the reasonable price of this product, since Tryptophan tends to be pricey and I am glad to be able to take it without all the fillers.
