    ever use zma or gaba? both are said to help with sleep. I started using them both and I do think I sleep a little better but then again I never had trouble with sleeping much.... I just feel more rested and I havent woken up since I started... which is great and both are around 10 bucks.

    My cortisol was pretty high on my last lab work. I noticed I get insomnia from elevated cortisol levels. What's the best supplement for lowering cortisol. I was thinking of trying 800mgs of phosphatidylserine with my post workout meal

    phosphatidylserine lowers cortisol concentrations after exercise and exposure to stress.
