I use this with now true calm, inositol, valerian root, and melatonin. After years of being on tons of prescription medication for a sleep disorder I sleep through the night and rest a lot better than I did with the prescription medication and wake up in a great mood.
1000mg 30-45 min before bed and you will sleep like a baby. Be prepared to have some vivid dreams as it increases the amount of time spent in REM sleep which is a good thing. Not nightmares, just long dreams. And is a big mood booster. Won't be without it. I would not take it during the day. Only at night.
