I have never heard of this supplement. You should probably ask someone in your local health food store.

DTrotter9, could you please try to put your questions all into one single post, instead of posting multiple different questions all on the same day in separate. It will help us to better support you if they are in one post. You currently have 4 separate questions all on the first page of the forum.

Good luck!

Good Morning D,

You may want to read this information:

I would suggest you talk with your Physician before you start this supplement to make sure it is safe for you.  It may interact with your other Meds..........I do not know this for sure but it is always good to check before you add a supplement.

I tried this supplement for a couple of days and it made me feel uncomfortable, unable to sleep.
