"im am a workoutaholic. i dont have problems sleeping but because i get only 5 - 6 hours i need to go into a deep sleep fast. in order for my growth hormone to kick to help me recover. it doesnt make you sleepy but once asleep your asleep. i can tell it helps because before it i havent had any dreams which is a sign for me to know that i went in deep. i wake up refreshed without yawning, im ready to go"
"Tiny capsule taken an hour before bedtime and I , at sixty-five under tremendous stress, sleep 6-7 hours , only waking up when I have to use the bathroom. If not for That, I'd sleep 8-9. For the best results, buy BLACK DRAPES or line your windows with black trash bags. Sunlight turns off melatonin production and wakes us up! No wonder in the fifties my mom would pull down our old fashioned ROOM DARKENING SHADES. Ugly, yes; but man did they work. Having "room with a view" is nice but a light filled room WILL wake you up!!!"
"Compared to regular melatonin, this stuff is a total knock out pill if you want to get to sleep and STAY asleep. My doctor recommended it over regular and he was absolutely on the spot. Very impressed--and the price here is right."
