TravaCor is one of the most popular brain supplements from the company NeuroScience. This is a dietary supplement and one of the higher quality supplements that we have reviewed on this website. The main issue that we see for customers is that the supplement uses a synthetic amino acid, which is unnecessary and inferior to natural amino-acids able to assist brain and cognitive performance.

Is TravaCor Right For You?

TravaCor is an amino acid supplement developed and marketed by NeuroScience, a company with a good reputation among consumers. It is specially formulated to increase the levels of Serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for the primary functions of the emotional and nervous system.

NeuroScience claims that the formula may help users elevate depressed mood, diminish cravings, anxiousness, and alleviate various sleep issues. TravaCor’s ingredients work to support Serotonin synthesis by using certain vitamins and 5-HTP, the latter being a direct precursor to Serotonin.

Typically, the formula is recommended to those individuals who, for some reason, have low Serotonin levels, with precautions extending to pregnant and nursing women in particular. Travacor reviews report positive results, with some consumers even claiming to replace prescription treatments with this formulation.


Ingredients of TravaCor

TravaCor includes the following ingredients: Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Selenium, Magnesium, Zinc, Proprietary Blend: Taurine, 5-hydroxytryptophan, L-theanine, vegetable cellulose (vegetarian capsules), Rice Flour, Magnesium stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose.

    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.

  8. 9

    Let’s get this out of the way first: this is a good product. No matter how you put it, you get what you pay for. Concerning the price tag though, it is quite an investment for many people. It is hard to recommend it without a free trial. These products rarely work for everyone.

  9. 10

    Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to notice any result with Travacor, because I have experienced nausea and vomiting after the first administration. I am sad, because my best friend told me that it is a very good supplement.

  10. 11

    I have totally stopped craving for sweets. This is an amazing progress for me and I am so excited about the results. I totally recommend this … It helped me so I guess it wouldn’t hurt to give this a try!

  11. 12

    I have taken aminoacid supplements only once. I liked that experience so much that I decided to get a more expensive, more famous product for myself. Travacor has been better in every way than my previous choice. I don’t have the money to use it regularly, but I am considering coming back to it in the future.

  12. 13

    All my research pointed towards a high quality supplement. After trying it for three months I can share the fact that It improved my life significantly. I rest a lot better and it’s easier for me to relax. I know other good products, but this one is better.

  13. 14

    Travacor was on my list of future purchases for a long time. I have a few friends that are very satisfied with it and have been pestering me for a long while to give it a try. I’ve been taking it for three weeks now and it seems to live up to the hype so far. We’ll see how long will this last.

  14. 15

    I took it on and off for a long time. It’s very effective and never disappointed me but the price is a little high for me and I can;t afford using it regularly. If you have the cash, this is perfect for you. If not, at least you can use it when it matters most to you.

  15. 16

    Although stress is crushing me at work, Travacor helps me deal with all of the excitement pretty well. Now I can turn all of that energy into extra productivity. One thing though is that I sometimes feel burnt out and I need some calming stuff. It’s not exactly everything I need, but it’s nice.

  16. 17

    Travacor is very high quality product. The effects match exactly with what the manufacturer says it does. All of my friends that have tried it have arrived to the same conclusion. It is a product that it’s worth the investment.

  17. 18

    This is one of my favorite products. I’ve used it and recommended it to friends whenever I had the chance. Whenever I feel I can’t handle the fast pace of life this is my number one option. It’ effective and it’s worth every cent.

  18. 19

    Travacor works perfectly for me. There is a lot of distrust regarding brain supplements with most people I know. Whether it’s reasonable or not, I think it’s irrelevant. If you feel the need of something more to help you out, you should not dismiss it beforehand. Just pick one you think might work, and give it a try. If it doesn’t work, try another one. It’s better than nothing.

    Kind of expensive, but it’s pretty effective. If you can;t find anything cheaper that works for you, give this a try.

  20. 21

    I take TravaCor in the evening and an extra Magnesium and zinc supplement during the day as my doctor recommended me. I sleep better and feel less anxious.

  21. 22

    Since I’ve been on Travacor I haven’t craved for salty foods so much. I also feel more optimistic. it really has helped me get over my anxiety.

  22. 23

    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!!

  23. 24

    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.

  24. 25

    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.

  25. 27

    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.

  26. 28

    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.

  27. 29

    This is an expensive supplement and there are other things on the market that are the same and cheaper. I would go for of the others next time. Maybe I will try the HCF one.

  28. 30

    I am studying for my exams and need to stay alert and productive. I was thinking this might have been the ticket with the Gaba added in. I am still not sure if it really helped me or not. I was able to do a bit more than normal but I needed to meet the deadline.

  29. 31

    I’m not too sure about this supplement. I was advised from friend about this, but I didnt get any results from it. I think it might have helped me with a bit of energy but thats not why I bought it.

  30. 32

    I like some supplements from this company but not this one. I am very stressed and hoped this would help me out but it didnt. I will need to see my doctor again asoon,
