great sleep aid

"I take one capsule before bed, and it seems to help me sleep. I have tried Melatonin (which caused depression) and Valerian (which made me feel dopey, and it stinks)! This product just helps me sleep - that's that!"

The need for it.

"I think this product does provide restful sleep--but when I stopped taking it for a couple days, it took me awhile to fall asleep! I don't like being dependent on anything, so I had to stop taking this. But it is effective...it does work."

Great Product
 September 2, 2007
"So many products I take and don't know if they work. This is a product that I could definitely feel the results. I took an entire bottle of this and towards the end of finishing it, I felt stronger. The little things in life were much easier to handle, and I felt happier in my core. When I finished the bottle, I didn't get another one. 2 weeks later that strength in dealing with things has diminished. I wasn't depressed to begin with and I still felt the results. I highly recommend this product."
