    Have you tried a simple cheap and effective solution like melatonin?

    PowerFULL is good. So is Somnidren-GH. So is IGF-2. If sleep disturbance is also stress/cortisol-related, adding Relora and Ashwagandha would deepen the results.

    Also try any other adaptogen, as they will help acclimate your body to stress. Bocopa, with a high percentage of Bocopasides has always worked well with me.

    You probably meant "bacosides"! . Fully agree with the adaptogen comment. Rhodiola rosea is by far my favourite adaptogen. I sleep well on rhodiola and ashwagandha. I failed to mention rhodiola because some users stay awake on it! The opposite outcome in this case!

    Any adaptogen can have neuro-stimulative effects, it simply depends on the dosage. Even Mucuna can have stimulative effects if not tailored to the purpose.

    And, no, I meant Bacopasides.

    Bacopasides are newly identified constituents of BM (saponins, btw) which they feel are potentiating much the adaptogenic effect of BM; most notably, its effects on memory.

    You better update your Stragipedia, it's getting outdated.

    or you could just read one of mullets rants, they tend to put me to sleep

    Abyss from nimbus is nice too, as well as bulk 1-carboxy from nutraplanet(part of powerfull) and the mega sleep aid from custom capsule works well too for some people

    If I'm feeling stressed I use Lean Dreams for cortisol.

    If not then ZMT and melatonin with B6 for dreams.

    Completely eliminate caffeine.........or, just have one cuppa very early to start your day. I'm doing great with that and just 2mg of melatonin.

    Have you noticed any positive or negative interaction between Reset and your sleepy time supps?

    It must be going around... I've had the same problem. Dsade should make a night time aid. Maybe throw some Reset in to the mix.

    I've tried Lean Dreams, Somnidren GH, and lots of other things.

    Nothing works better for me than Neurobalance, which is now discontinued it seems. Good thing I stocked up!

    Phenibut is #1 for me. Too bad it has to be cycled..just need to find something that works somewhat well on the off days.

    ZMT was a start for me....have been looking at other stuff (y'all kind of stole some thunder talking about the adaptogens...jerks) that should yield some amazing sleep/recovery benefits.

    USP Labs used a few adaptogens in REM, right. That **** knocked me out and had me slobbering on my pillow. I would definitely buy another supp like that.

    EDIT: True story from a thread in reference to REM/adaptogens for a sleep aid.

    Somnidren-GH and The Abyss both work very well in their effects on sleep induction imo.

    My worst problem is just falling asleep...but once I wake up I'm pretty screwed too.

    I'm not sure why, but I have noticed that I sleep best from about 6am - 11am...unfortunately being asleep between those times is not very productive.

    I'm getting horny with all the Somnidren talk.

    Honestly though, what are people's opinions on it inducing sleep vs increasing quality of sleep as those are different. I say that, as PowerFULL (high Mucuna content) gives a very high sleep quality, but isn't an aid in the sense that it will put you to sleep.
