- Calcium Citrate. I only take Twinlab brand. I believe it is the magnesium in this product that does the trick. I can go to dreamland taking one pill before bedtime. If I really want to go bye-bye, I take two (the recommended dosage). There's also a couple of added benefits with this supplement: regular BM's and it inhibits the formation of calcium kidney stones. BIG SCORE! It's a WIN-WIN-WIN situation!!! I buy them here.
- Valerian Root. I prefer Nature's Sunshine brand. I believe they sell the purest product giving the best results in the herb industry. I can take one pill before bedtime and it relaxes me right off to sleep. I take two if I'm really keyed up and feel like I can't possibly sleep. This supplement also has various benefits: decreases constipation and decreases anxiety/nervousness.
So... the next time I can't sleep I'm going to act more like a monkey. Eat a banana and pick fleas off my family members. I've heard protein promotes sleep too! I'll let you know how it goes! These tips are not "For Women Only". They work on both human species.
Taking a nap,
The Happy Handicap
