    The headline says post-workout. Shouldn't that be pre-workout, according to what's in the article?

    Diagrams suggest that GH levels are elevated more during the exercise if melatonin is dosed at 5mg or I am being stupid here? That could be beneficial as well(?). Also, somatostatin is lowered more with that dose, which could suggest that elevated GH is secreted for longer.
    I need to read into this study I guess.

    This is a very interesting article. For fat burning, I will stack the .5g of melatonin with a fat burner supplement such as Prograde Metabolism and do my cardio on an empty stomach. The cardio should be really effective.

    I went and bought some last night since its so cheap, remember you can get a bottle of 180 for about 10 bucks. Well see how it works with Assault, but last night before bed it put my eyes down!!

    I just started trying this morning with assault and some coffee pre workout. It's cheap enough that if it does nothing I won't be upset, but the possible boost in gains would be awesome to acheive so easily.

    I didn't notice any difference in energy level during my workout at all, BTW. The dose is so low at .5mg it really shouldn't do anything to effect energy and focus.

    I was able to add 5lbs to bench this morning and got an extra 1-2 reps all four sets, probably not related to the melatonin but worth noting.

    Im a bit confused on the dosing here. THe article mentions doses in increments of 0.1mg. Ive never seen melatonin sold in doses that low. Was it possibly a mistype?

    They show in the study that a dose of 0.5mg pre-workout had the best effect on post workout GH levels with increased dosage having a negative effect. I bought 1mg melatonin tablets and just cut in half, they're really easy to find. I would stick to the 0.5mg guideline since in this case higher dose makes lower GH levels than no melatonin at all.

    I just reread the article and I see your questioning, and now I'm also confused. Are they stating to take 5 mg preworkout or .5mg which is half of 1mg. (just to clarify :)) Rereading this thru me for a loop. I bought 3 mg pills. Someone slightly more intelligent throw me a bone!

    Just seen your post my apologizes. Was the original 5 mg mentioned for cardio? Why was it mentioned period... :)

    Placebo, 5mg and 0.5mg were all in the study with 0.5mg test group showing the biggest delta in GH post workout. Both the placebo and 5mg groups showed little to no spike post workout making 0.5mg the most effective dose. Later in the article they reference another test by Swedish scientists that used a 6mg dose and found that it negatively impacted post workout GH. So 0.5mg is best, 5mg is almost equal in effect to placebo, and >5mg is counter-productive.

    Hope this helps!

    Tried this 2 days in a row at .5mg, both days 30 mins before the end of my workout I felt so drained I didn't want to even think about my cardio, I do have a head cold and sinuses are acting crazy but I am definitely discontinuing this until my head cold is gone. I usually have enough energy after my workout and cardio to do another workout if I wanted to. I will try again in two weeks.

    So far I've done it before my tuesday workout and this morning with no drowsiness to note. I guess everyone responds to things differently!
