1) What is TravaCor?

2) Who Makes TravaCor

TravaCor is manufactured by NeuroScience, an American company with headquarters in Wisconsin, U.S.A. The company was founded in 1999 and provides medical solutions that improve human health by supporting the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems.

What’s Inside?

3) What’s Inside TravaCor?

TravaCor contains

  • Taurine – Taurine is an amino acid that provides antioxidant protection. It helps support nerve growth, may also lower blood pressure, and calm the nervous system. It can also increase levels of GABA, the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that relaxes the brain.

  • L-theanine – This amino acid can act as a glutamate receptor antagonist. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter that excites nerve cells by sending signals to them.

  • 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) (from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract) – 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, known as the happy neurotransmitter, and melatonin which regulates sleep. Serotonin and melatonin can provide a relaxed mood and better sleep.

  • B Vitamins – Vitamins B6, folate, and B12 are essential for serotonin synthesis and support nerve health and energy metabolism.

  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights free radicals, supports the immune system, and helps in serotonin synthesis.

  • Magnesium – Magnesium plays a vital role in regulating many biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, and blood glucose control.

  • Zinc – Zinc helps your immune system function correctly and supports metabolic function.

  • Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant and may help prevent mental decline.

4) Does TravaCor Work?

TravaCor primarily works to support Serotonin levels in the body through 5-HTP, its primary ingredient. It contains a unique combination of amino acids and vitamin and mineral cofactors.

Because of these ingredients contained in TravaCor, it may work to improve mood and sleep quality, though results may vary by individual.

How long did you take it?

I used travacor and had a very bad reaction to it. Could not sleep at all and felt my heart
racing. My doctor tested me a few days ago for the individual ingredients in travacor and he
found that I’m allergic to l-theanine. The product’s label doesn’t state how much l-theanine,
taurine or 5-htp is in the formula. That messed me up. I won’t take it again.

You take a product, you get a reaction, your doctor says you are allergic to one of the ingredients listed on the label and you blame the product? Seriously?

The ingredients are on the label!

What does it matter how much is in it? Allergic is allergic.

Other are NOT allergic.


I love travacor. My doctor tested my neurotransmitters and found I am deficient in serotonin. Started travacor and I was amazed. I noticed a difference in one dose. This is not something that keeps your moods stable as that is unrealistic with any medication but I felt I didn’t have that underlying sense of gloom I seemed to always have before. I took it for a long while and stopped and within maybe 3 months those feelings came back. Started up with the travacor to see if that was the reason and sure enough. I would say if you don’t know if you are low in serotonin that this supplement may not be for you but if you are then I highly recommend it. If you are worried about the price then skip a day once or twice a week. I didn’t notice a difference. I only take one tab 30 min before my evening meal.


I developed insomnia 6 months ago. A month ago, I went to a new doctor, who suggested neurotransmitter testing (urine). Results showed low adrenalin and serotonin, and high glutamate. Based on lab’s (Pharmasan) recommendation, Doc put me on Avipaxin and Travacor. Two weeks so far taking 2/day of each, and no improvement in sleep consistency, quality, or quantity. Some reduction in anxiety which could be due to these or to the Adrecor/SAME I started in the second week of treatment.

Mostly works for me, on an as-needed basis for a few days to a week at a time. I never saw any of the negative effects some have posted; your mileage may vary. Be cautious with dosage; 3 keeps me tired into the next day, 2 at dinnertime is about right for me, don’t wait until bedtime because of effective time.


I tried the Neuro Adrenal Neuroscience test – and found that I had Low Seratonin and Low Taurine. Before I was up every night between 1-3am – restless, anxious. It was driving me crazy. Once I started TravaCor, I was amazed to feel better. My sugar cravings diminished and I started sleeping straight through the night. What a blessing. When my Doc said “low seratonin, low taurine” you need to try TravaCor, I was like thank God I finally am done with going crazy. Nothing like sleepling like a baby again!


I’m not sure but maybe the people who took this and did not feel any different is perhaps their serotonin levels were not low. I had a neurotransmitter urine test and I’m low in serotonin so my doc has suggested it. Will start it when I get it in the mail. I hope I get good results.

I have had problems with anxiety for several years now.I finally found a practitioner who has helped tremendously.She had me take several blood tests along with urine and saliva tests.She sent me several supplements after reviewing my tests and now I take one travacor and 3 calm prt and 1 calm cp an hour before bed.I also take 1 calm cp a half hour before dinner.All 3 products are from neuroscience.It’s only been a week and I’m much better.When I do start to get anxiety it’s not nearly as bad as before and keeps getting better every night.I think it also helped me a lot to find out what is wrong with my system.Knowing that it is all physical helped a lot too.For me the money is worth it because it’s actually making a difference.


I’ve been taking this supplement to help with insomnia, restlessness, anxiety and low mood. It worked great for the first 2 nights I took it and then night 3 brought really vivid nightmares that sometimes resulted in me waking from crying. I spoke with my naturopath, who adjusted my dose. That worked for 2 nights and then the restlessness came back with a vengeance. The nightmares aren’t as frequent or as vivid, but they happen any time I actually CAN sleep after taking this product. I was saddened but relieved that others have had similar experiences with these side effects. While it seems to work well for some, it isn’t for everyone.


This product was a life saver for me! I had really bad mood swings especially before my cycle. I was happy and in a good mood after taking this for just one day. I continue to take this and it helps me tremendously with my stress and anxiety on a day to day basis. I’m wondering if it’s safe to take it long term? I have had no side effects and don’t want to stop taking it because I feel so great!!

The naturalist I went to perscribed this for me. It was like 60 bucks….
The recommended intake is 3 a night. However when I tried that, I was
dog tired the following day. “all day”
2 at night is too much for me as well. I’m now taking 1 a night, and dont feel near as tired the next day, but I’ve really noticed no differences other than that after taking it 3 weeks.


SCARY reaction on 2x/day. By the 4th day I was having such memory gaps that I was afraid to drive my children to school. For example, I would be looking at the garage and not be able to remember the word for it, sometimes it would take 2-5 minutes for me to recollect certain words. And I labored over reading sentences, my cognition was impaired. Saw DO who stopped it for 10 days and re-started with 1/day. Even after stopping I was still impaired but not severely. When I started again, it increased what seemed like half as much for about 3 weeks before I ceased taking it as I felt like dementia. I give it credit, I took it 1 hour prior to bedtime and I slept like a rock (insomnia is partially why I was prescribed it) but I had the weirdest time/scary dreams going from conscious to subconscious.


My heart was pounding out of my chest … I thought Taurine was like caffiene.


After lab tests, NeuroScience told my doctor to have me take Travacor before bedtime. Big mistake – my heart was racing, my mind was churning. Not only did I not sleep, but I was so out of sorts from it the next day that even I didn’t want to be around myself. It took about 20 hours to wear off. I tried it twice to be sure, but it was awful both times.

I tried Travacor and had a bad reaction. Could not sleep at all, felt heart racing. My homeopath doctor tested me later for the individual ingredients in Travacor and I am allergic to L Theanine which is in Travaor. The Travacor label does not indicate how much Theanine, Taurine or 5 HTP is in the formula. I am probably unusual that I am allergic to L Theanine which is in green tea.
