"I tend to be very sensitive to both medications and supplements; therefore, the discovery that this productive is both effective as a calming agent and sleep aid and does not cause any negative side effects was a great relief to me. I highly recommend it."
"I don't know how I went so long without knowing about this stuff! It is a staple for me and my family and I panic when I run low. It has helped me sleep as well as aided me in weighloss. Love this stuff!"
"That's the most important thing I can say about this product. I take one or two capsules an hour or less before going to bed. I also use 1 mg. of sublingual melatonin which I put under my tongue just before retiring. After this I go to sleep quickly and usually sleep through the night. This product is also a good value, especially when on sale!"
