My internal medicine doctor practices alternative medicine and replaced Ambien CR with this product. The doctor suggested it to lower my cortisol levels and improve my sleep quality. After changing from Ambien CR and using this product, I no longer experience morning headaches or waking to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I also experience deeper and longer sleep. When I need to set an alarm, it is easy to wake, too. I noticed these positive changes within two weeks and have been using this product for 7 months now with great success. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. This product was the first positive change in my treatment protocol that improved the quality of my life and my condition since I was diagnosed. I've identified no side effects from taking this product, even with the many medications I must take. I'd recommend it to anyone who is experiencing trouble sleeping or body pain. It can't hurt to try something different as I learned prescription drugs aren't always the answer. Per the directions, I'm now taking 2 softgels per day, so the price is very comparable to a prescription co-pay...a very economical alternative.

I really like this product and have used it for about a month. I take one most nights around bedtime to stop cortisol from building too early. Cortisol tends to rise toward morning but in peri or postmenopausal women can start rising as early as midnight making you wake up over and over again. Sometimes you wake up startled or panicky from the cortisol. This product helps with that and I get no stomach upset from it even with celiac. I don't use it during the day as I think that might block the cortisol you NEED to function all day.

Seems to work best if you take it at night, vice morning.
