Supplements for Sleep - My Experiences

Being a shift worker makes me a good candidate to evaluate the potential effects of sleep aids.

Valerian - Produces a slight relaxing sensation but does not help with sleep in any shape or form

ZMA - Helps a bit if your already tired and with morning wood sometimes

L-Theanine - To be tested, some on order

Taurine - To be tested, will order some

Melatonin - quite effective, but the dose needs to be quite high like 3mg, may have potential bad side effects in longterm use by your pineal gland down-regulating its own production like steroids and testosterone

Zopiclone - Very effective, but potentially very addictive.
