  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for insomnia)
  • Side effects
    Mild (groggy in morning)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 tbs. Daily
Advice & Tips: This really does help me sleep through the night. I take it 1 hour before bed, 2 tablespoons in seltzer water. If I take more than 2 Tbs, I am groggy in the morning so start low and work up to the dose that is effective, without the grogginess the next day, or use it on a weekend or day that you do not have to be up early the next day to see how it goes.
Cost: < $25 monthly
