while melatonin may be one of the better known and popularized "remedies", but that actuality of this helping is dependent on the individual's melatonin levels -- which, is usually not low and therefore not the problem. there are many ppl who this won't help at all
i'm in the same boat, been having horrible sleep issues for an extended time..just picked up some G8 from Finaflex
ooooooo wow. incredible!
went from taking forever to fall asleep, waking every 6x an hour, to these last few nights of nice drifting off at bedtime/going hours w/o waking up/bed is not disturbed at all so i am not even moving in my sleep!
i awake feeling so rested and good these last few mornings..

So what is it that you companies product has that would work over melatonin?
also how would OP know if his levels are low or his circadian rhythm is off?

melatonin works, GABA also works by helping me relax

I used to take Ambien like candy to try and sleep. I now use NightRest and it works awesome. Just a combo of magnesium, GABA, taurine, melatonin, lemon balm, passion flower, chamomile, skullcap, and Glycine.

if you have norm levels of melatonin production, you can take all the supplemental melatonin in the world - to no avail

our REM-8.0 works really well, formally known as ressurect. 1 teaspoon does the job nicely and would allow the product to last for a good bit of time

Target's brand of Unisom sleep gels combined with ZMA. Taking Unisom on it's own knocks me out but I still feel very tired the next morning. When I added in ZMA, I wake up feeling refreshed and energized.

just don't claim that this boosts testosterone..may help sleep and balance slight mineral deficiencies tho

I have used g8. I found it to be real good for giving me deep sleep. Not getting to sleep. Same with ZMA and melatonin.
I had been used a Time Released Melatonin at 3mg.
Nothing yet. I did try and keep room at a certain temp and it seemed to help somewhat. Just a struggle....

i still say try some Calm..could be a cheap fix
other options are like herbal teas, Celestial Seasonings has Sleepytime and Tension Tamer variations, worked for me couple yrs back but i've gotten out of the tea habit for some reason
don't know if they have these things Down Under...

Have you looked at some natural ways to help get to sleep earlier? No TV in the bedroom, same time/routine for going to sleep each night (getting on a schedule), an hour or so before to wind down, turning the cell phone off?
Not to say any of the supplement advice isn't good or necessary, but if I had the issue I'd research and start with the non try taking this answers if it was me.
Also I realize that depending on what you do the schedule thing may or may not be possible.

paraphrasing someone elses words from 'recollection' does not excite me much, either
perhaps if you want to hear from him on this topic, you should PM him rather than channel your memory

Only the dosing part was from memory. natural melatonin levels decrease with age, hence why many adults go to bed later yet wake much earlier than teenagers (consdier how tired many teenagers are/ how ling they sleep for in comparison).
Dosing melatonin before sleep can shift the circadian clock backward thus allowing for an earlier sleep cycle and ergo a more refreashed awakening.
While what you said regarding melatonin production may be true; due to the natural decline in levels, supplementing may help offset.

however - i don't know that i would compare the sleep patterns of teens/older adults and give reasoning to differing melatonin levels as being the be all/end all here..you have a whole entire cascade of hormonal differences going on between the two, my friend
infants require more sleep than children, children require more sleep than teens, teens require more sleep than adults
none of this has anything to do with internal melatonin production
but -- i will most definitely agree with the aspect of IF there is a decline in melatonin production, then supplementation of such will certainly correct this and aid in sleep patterns
