I think I may finally have found a combination of supplements that is helping my sleep. After years of getting at most one sleep cycle a night (and often none) I tracked my sleep last night to find that I likely completed 4 sleep cycles! That's pretty much a normal night of sleep. :D
I'm still feeling groggy in the mornings but then again I have years of sleep to catch up on.
It's only been a week so I hope I'm not jinxing anything but I wanted to share my current concoction, that seems to be helping, incase it helps anyone else as I've spent sooo many hours fishing through the archives looking for sleep hope.
- Glycine (there are studies that show that this improves sleep but it alone wasn't sufficient for me)
- l-Ornithine (again there are studies for sleep and it also supposedly detoxifies ammonia so in all likelihood that was my issue),
- theanine (I'm not sure if this helps but I still have some on hand so I'm taking it),
- Chinese Jujube (Ziziphus jujuba - again I'm not sure if this is key, I'm thinking not so I'll try taking this one out soon), and
- b12 as methylcobalamin.
I'm continuing to take magnesium in a black cherry juice as well as I've been doing this all along and it makes sense to continue.
Even if this proves not to be a long term solution it's given me hope that sleep _can_ be cracked with continued theory building and experimentation.
Wishing everyone here sweet dreams at some point or another.
