    try GABA or Gamma Amino Butyric Acid, its supposed to be great for sleep and GH levels.


    and also Maca Puriens Extract (standardized for l-dopa) it will put you to sleep like a baby. Also good for GH levels.

    Par Deus has some 4-methxy-GHB product that's supposed to help sleeping a lot. Also supposed to multiply the affect of alcohol by about 6, so if it helps you sleep you can drink less every night

    Anybody on BDC come up with a cheap version of that yet?

    Love the ZMA and Gaba ...ZMA has to be my favorite sleep aid on the market for the money, heck you can even make it yourself for a lot less if you want to. 1Fast has some Tranquili-G single doses for sale too...You could try a couple of those to see how they work for you...

    l-tryptophan is illegal to sell...buy the precurser..5HTP. It converts to tryptophan which converts to serotonin. Good stuff! Be sure not to take it with depression meds or kava or anything.

    Things naturally high in tryptophan:

    Bannanas
    Milk
    I forget the rest...

    restful sleeping!!!

    Yeah I am looking for the real deal but its hard to come by. The synthesis is pretty easy but a bit beyond me. I don't know if there is anyone here who has the skill to make GHB or a precursor like par's, can you think of anyone?

    The raw material is dirt cheap, if you can find your own source for it you might as well buy it. One kilo should last you a long time. Tranquili-G is actually a precursor to 4-Methyl-GHB (basically GHB with a carbon attached at the 4th position). Its not as strong as the real stuff, but still fun.

    I have tried GABA never really felt the effects on sleep. OTC I have used Excedrine PM it seems to work. Just now trying ZMA will let you know if it does.

    I'm not sure if the raw materials are expensive. Anyone know any more information I might want to try this. If you are interested I will post the ingredients and procedure.

    Here is the synthesis equation.
    Gamma-Butyrolactone + NaOH => Sodium Gamma-Hydroxy Butyrate (Na-GHB)

    I could use some sodium hydroxide for the synovex converstion anyway (correct?) and thats readily available, but the Gamma-Butyrolactone is what I need to find.

    There really is no reason to spend time performing this reaction. Gamma-Butyrolactone (also known as GBL) once ingested converts into GHB. Taking GBL has been said to have better effects then taking GHB itself. GBL is legal, but not for consumption. It sells as paint thinner and can be quite expensive.

    Like I said what Par uses in Tranquili-G (4-Pentanolide) is a precurser to 4-Methyl-GHB. Its not as strong but still has a nice calming effect.

    ZMA works good.  I like the melatonin but it is like waking in a fog.  Maybe if it was taken with a nighttime snack.

    ive never had better sleep with zma. from what i remember, the initial falling asleep took longer at first then back to regular habits. but of course, many have had success with zma's as a sleeping agent

    I've had the most amazing sleep of my life on ZMA. Once I quit taking it with milk, isn't research great, this stuff worked amazing. I have no problem falling asleep, but my dreams are very intense. I can have like 6 distinct dreams and will remember each one once I wake up and feel plenty refreshed. One of my favorite supps.

    Hmm. I tried tranquili-G for the first time last night. I really didn't feel much. I didn't take it on an empty stomach though. It's hard to do that when you lift at night and don't get home until 9. Plus, it really didn't make me sleep all that good. Actully I was up a lot. Theres a chance I didn't take enough, but everything I've read about it says that elevated doses don't make it more effective. Plus, I spilled a **** ton of the stuff, that bottle is damn near impossible to pour out of. I'm gonna try more tonight, possibly a little larger serving and post back tomarow.

    drink it from the bottle...........i think imma try zma.

    i have intense dreams regardless, i can wake up and remember every dream i had, its pretty scary sometimes. I mean i literally think back to certain things and am not sure whether it was something i dreamt or if it really happened.

    time to go to the looney bin i guess

    I myself like Melatonin, I did experience the groggyness for about 1 week. I had to take some Xenadrine to feel normal, but the groggyness eventually went away for me. I use 3mg. melatonin in sublingual form
