For as long as I can remember I have had a difficult time falling asleep and sometimes saying asleep. I have tried so many different items to try and improve my sleep I can't even keep track of how many. So I wasn't sure how this would work but I thought I would give it a try. I took 2 capsules with water an hour before I was going to go to bed. About 30 minutes later I actually started feeling drowsy. But I waited another 30 minutes and went to bed.In another 30 minutes I was really feeling drowsy. I said my prayers, as I always do, and shut my eyes. I really don't know how long it was before I went to sleep. It seemed like approximately 10 minutes. The next thing I know I wake up at 8:15 AM. I had slept a beautiful 8 hours straight!
