PLEASE LAY DOWN... MY NERVES ARE WEARING THIN, ERRRR!


Melatonin
(N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine)
~
Melatonin is a hormone that naturally occurs inside the body and helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle of a person. Melatonin is available in supplement form and is used to treat sleep related disorders like insomnia and jet lag. Melatonin dosage that is considered to be safe and effective is around 1mg to 5mg. The effects of overdosing on melatonin will vary depending on the dosage and also with other factors like the genetic makeup of a person and age. It is best to seek immediate medical attention if you happen to overdose on melatonin supplements.

Melatonin, i became aware of it from a friend’s autistic child who had racing thoughts 24/7… It calmed him down and he slept through the night… Dosage is by weight and takes 30 days to build up in the body…
~
A good friend said his mother and he could never sleep soundly their whole lives… I mentioned trying melatonin… He has and has been getting several hours of sound sleep now… He is a person that worries and frets so does have nights he is awake for periods some nights…
~
You can try eating 2 bananas before bedtime… They are deemed the sleeping pill in a peel!
~
~ Melatonin is for kids, adults and dogs…
~ Melatonin is a little known natural hormone that effects many, as you can see by the deficiency list…
~ The Deficiency Test covers all hormones… A “KEY” test to take IMO….
