Great product wish is was without St. John's wart
I was really having a hard time with anxiety I tried my primary care doctor and he gave me Lexapro after one day I refuse to be on any medication it made it worse for me I really wanted a more natural approach so I visited GNC for this Lumiday I swear after few days it worked and it was natural but after few weeks I noticed alot of sensitivity to the sun so bad after 1 day of errands out in the sun I went home to lay down my skin was so hot and I couldn't take it. Living in Florida u can't avoid the sun so now I am in search of something similar but without St John's wart.

Works but WHY so expensive??
The product is great however, based on the ingredients there is NO reason why this should be so expensive. It's basically an over priced vitamin. If they brought the price of the product down they probably couldn't keep on on the shelves.

I'd love to try this but being on a fixed income it is much too expensive for me. I have heard that it works well.

Highly recommend
Been taking this once a day for 3 days so far and have noticed at least a 95% percent decrease in my anxiety. Yes it's expensive as all get out but I can say it truly helps. The only side effects I've noticed is my taste is a little bit off but it's only been 3 days. Hopefully it gets better

Lumiday to start your day.
As someone who has anxiety, I take 1-2 every morning and it gives me a feeling of calm without feeling tired or drugged like prescription anxiety medicine does. I recommend it to people who have anxiety all the time. This product is well worth it. I can't imagine not having it in my vitamin cabinet.

Lumiday works great!
Works great. It makes your mood better, even makes easier to fall a sleep at night. No more anxious moments. The only bad thing is the ridiculusly high price tag.

My own personal miracle
I walked into GNC one day and was straight-up with the cashier. I was having debilitating anxiety and actually had a panic attack driving to the store to find something as a last resort before going to a prescription. The cashier recommended lumiday, and I tried it, figuring I had nothing to lose. A few days in, and I was a new person. I just bought my second bottle today. I don't plan on EVER being without this supplement. On a different trip I was raving about this product, and the cashier took one off the shelf and told me that it was from the 5 HTP, because that was as close to seratonin as I could get from a supplement. I don't know how true it is (although I've never been steered wrong by an employee there before) but whatever is in this is a miracle. I am a new person. One month later and I've only had 3 very mild panic attacks, in comparison to having several a day before. I would definitely recommend this to anyone facing anxiety if they aren't ready to go into the realm of prescriptions just yet.

YESSS IT WORKS!!! Was having marriage issues, sad, depressed, hopless
FIRST OF ALL.....I have seen people posting on here saying that all the good reviews are from people who work for Lumiday....listen..most of us are reading these reviews because we have something that is going on in our lives that is making us need something to make us feel better so we can function so if you haven't tried these stop leaving negative isn't helping us to try and find a balance with our pain and getting through life.
With that being said....I DON'T work for Lumiday....I have my ow company that my husband and I have owned for 10 is stressful.. My husband and I have been together for 24 years. Recently we have been going through changes that are devastating to me. I cry constantly and am constantly in pain emotionally and I THOUGHT I was a strong person!! I have never taken any drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke, but this pain was making me not be able to function in life. I was terrified! I was hurt at the thought of losing him, not feeling adequate, losing my dreams, losing myself. I would go to sleep crying and walk around like a zombie with indescribable pain!! I went to the doctor and she gave me some meds that she said would take 2 weeks to feel the effects and that I couldn't be homicidal or suicidal and take are giving me a pill that will make me want to kill someone or kill myself and I'm already depressed.....huuuuuuuuu!!!!! That sounded crazy!! Then she said that it wasn't addictive but I wouldn't be able to stop taking it without weening myself off of it or I would crash into depression....huuuuuuuu!!!! I decided that I was afraid to take those but I knew I needed help. I'm usually strong but every morning I felt like I could feel my heart bleeding! I couldn't find me. I felt lost, sad, hopeless, worthless. I researched natural products and came across a lot of different ones. I called GNC to ask about the individual ones and they told me about Lumiday. I was skeptical but was willing to try something other than something that would make me homicidal and suicidal. Yes the pills are expensive but I don't mind the expense to feel normal again!! The first time I took a pill was before bedtime....don't do that!!! I woke up in a panic attack....I was like oh my word.....I knew it was working though....I think my body was so shocked and out of balance that the pill was adjusting my body back and that is why it felt so weird. I took another one the next day around 11 and mood changed drastically.......I was laughing and dancing lol!!! I continued to take one in the morning because that is when I feel the worse pain in my heart and then another one around 5-6 in the afternoon. My depression and inability to concentrate is gone....I am doing things that I have wanted to do for years. Don't get me wrong, I still feel hurt and pain but I am able to manage it with these pills. I have been on them for about a week and I will stay on them for a couple months till I get through what I need to mentally with my husband. I know I don't just need a pill....I am going to counseling and working on somethings to improve my self can't rely on a pill to build your self esteem and self worth. This pill works!! If you have any questions you can feel free to email me at That way you know that I am a human leaving this review and not a Lumiday employee lol.

Is this a product that would be of benefit for someone with OCD?
A shopper on May 30, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I am not a Dr., so check with one. But I was married to someone with OCD and have 2 nephews with it, so I have a pretty good idea of what your dealing with. People with OCD can go days, weeks, even years without any so-called "episodes" and then anything can happen, good or bad, to trigger it. Then there are some that never go into a kind of remission, it's there to stay on a daily basis. I personally don't see anything in Lumiday that could really help someone with real OCD. If they are not taking any other medications or supplements for it, you might give it a go. It might help with mood swings, I don't really know. But anyone with serious OCD should be under Psychiatrist's care.
