Has anyone ever heard of or used this?  I have pretty bad insomnia where I can get to sleep, but tend to wake up in about three hours and toss and turn for the rest of the night.  I have a friend who told me about this stuff.  From what I understand it is just zinc and magnesium.  I don’t do well on sleeping pills, but if this is just correctly a mineral deficiency then I’m all for it.  Also, if anyone else has any other suggestions, that would be great.

Has anyone had any experience with this; good, bad, or indifferent?

It makes me have more vivid dreams, but I’m not sure if it actually causes me to sleep better.

Inertia plays a mighty role in recovery, and an object at rest on a couch can stay there for a long time.

I’ve heard that.  I’ve heard some people even have disturbingly vivid dreams.  Do you normally have trouble sleeping? Have you found anything that works better?

I usually sleep fine except my daughter tries her best to keep us awake, so I tried it to see if I could get more recovery out of the little sleep I have been getting.

Haha. I understand.  My son will sometimes do the same thing.  My problem is that I trained myself to function on about five to six hours of sleep but it seems to be catching up with me so I’m trying to fin d a way to get to sleep and stay asleep for a full night.
