I've not been having any problems with falling asleep for the past 2 years. It was until the past few days that I'm encountering issues with sleeping. I no longer have the ability to fall asleep with a snap of my fingers. I would only be in dreamland after midnight. That's bad and I didn't like a bit of it!
Tryptophan to the rescue!
What is Tryptophan? According to Wikipedia, there is evidence that blood tryptophan levels are unlikely to be altered by changing the diet, but for some time, tryptophan has been available in health food stores as a dietary supplement.Clinical research has shown mixed results with respect to tryptophan's effectiveness as a sleep aid, especially in normal patients. Tryptophan has shown some effectiveness for treatment of a variety of other conditions typically associated with low serotonin levels in the brain. In particular, tryptophan has shown some promise as an antidepressant alone and as an "augmenter" of antidepressant drugs. However, the reliability of these clinical trials has been questioned because of lack of formal controls and repeatability. In addition, tryptophan itself may not be useful in the treatment of depression or other serotonin-dependent moods, but may be useful in understanding the chemical pathways that will give new research directions for pharmaceuticals.[
On the night of Monday, I mixed 1 scoop of the product with 3/4 glass of water. It relaxes my body. Once my body was laid on the bed, that's about the position I remained in for a long while. This product relaxes my body, making me not having the desire to move my body to a different position. I don't fidget as much = higher success rate in falling asleep. Slowly but surely, I fell asleep.
This is how it looks like after mixing with water
I didn't want to depend on this product even though it's au-natural. Hence, I'm going to try falling asleep w/o the help of this product. I guess I would only turn to it when I'm desperate.
I sure hope you've better luck in the sleeping department!
