    I currently use Abyss as needed, and when you find the sweet spot on the proper dosage for yourself, it is lovely and deep sleep

    Your Wish Is Our Command!


    BUY TOGETHER AND SAVE!!!

    The ZMT/Melatonin Sleep Stack, now in stock for ONLY $23.95!!!

    You're sure to sleep like a baby!


    NutraPlanet ZMT Capsules


    Zinc and Magnesium are essential nutrients for athletes and anyone engaged in vigorous exercise. Supplementation with Zinc and Magnesium have been proven to support healthy testosterone production, improve muscle tone and strength, promote healthy nighttime recovery and improve sleep.

    Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, has been added by the innovative team of Nutraplanet in order to vastly improve the old standard. Tryptophan has been shown to increase Serotonin and Melatonin production, allowing for a natural effective way to aid sleep and promote full recovery from strenuous exercise.

    The power to rebuild, recharge and reload, ZMT is the future of Anabolic Sleep Aids.

    Each 2 capsules contains:

    * Zinc Aspartate 30 mg
    * Magnesium Aspartate 450 mg
    * L-Tryptophan 500 mg

    Optimum Nutrition's Melatonin 100 tabs/3mg


    Melatonin is a hormone produced in the body and secreted at night. Taken as a dietary supplement, it is designed to help combat insomnia and may be useful for jet-lag.

    N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine, or melatonin, is hormone produced naturally by the body in the pineal gland of the brain. The release of melatonin correlates with the body's cycle of day and night. The highest levels of the hormone are produced at night. Trace amounts of melatonin appears in foods.

    Melatonin may play an essential role in sleeping, disorders, depression, and immune system deficiencies. As light inhibits its production, and darkness stimulates it, melatonin regulates the body's internal clock. Double blind research shows that this hormone helps people sleep, shortens the number of awakenings in the night, and improves the quality of sleep. It is also very useful in treating jet lag, as it promotes quicker recovery from that "out of it" stage one may experience after extended periods of flight. Research has also shown that having enough melatonin exhibits positive psychological benefits on a person's mood, while a lack of melatonin corresponds to anxiety, fatigue, and hostility. Melatonin has also been investigated for its anti-aging potential.

    Nothing really works for me sleep wise. Either I get lucky and have a good night sleep, or lay awaked frustrated trying to fall asleep. Sadly i'm usually laying awake.

    I've tried ZMA, Melatonin, Valerian Root, GABA, and Tylenol PM. Even a mixture of some won't knock me out, anyone have this problem??

    are you exercising close to bedtime? do you drink booze? how old are you? are you very sedentary? are you fit, obese, or in between? Do you comsume any stims? If so, how much, and when? When do you eat your last meal, and what is it?

    Anyway, you haven't tried Somnidren GH, so I'd recommend giving it a go.

    Adding to Poisonís list. 1)You probably need to see a doctor, there are some useful prescriptions out there, Lunesta is my preference. 2) No one aid works for me, I have to do a combo. 3) Donít take the Tylenol PM, you probably donít need the Tylenol part and itís hard on the liver. Just use dyphenhydramine.

    I really have no idea, except when I had my wisdom teeth removed I started shortly after the pain subsidded, about a couple days. My biggest problem was I got tired a lot, probably because of the anestesia.

    Why not just go to a dr and ask him? If this has been an ongoing problem there may be more to it than just a sleep problem. If it's just been recent, it's nothing that less than a week of a prescription sleep aid can't help.
