This is the only 5-HTP with L-Tyrosine I have been able to find with capsules that have 200 mg. It is very cost effective because I don't have to take as many capsules and the best part is, it works. If I stop taking it, I have trouble sleeping and my mood goes out of control. I have been using this for about 4 months and I highly recommend it.
