I have used this product for help in falling asleep sooner and it actually worked well. I tried many other OTC products for sleep and done have worked as well. Sometimes I do feel a little sluggish in the morning, but it is rare. Plus I seem to have a better mood after using this for a while. Not sure if it is a coincidence or the added seratonin that comes from the ingredient l-tryptophan.
