  • Important Information for us Imsomniacs!

    For those of you that get a good nights sleep already, you don't need to read this!

    There are some of us, that even though we may sleep better with the Extra Strength Sleep Booster, we still have a hard time falling asleep and/or staying asleep.

    There is a reason, and there is a solution!

    The reason is that our bodies simply are not producing enough melatonin. The PATHS Sleep Module does encourage an increase in production of melatonin, but for some of us it is just not enough!

    The solution is to use a melatonin supplement. It is safe, fairly inexpensive, and easy to get! (even Walmart carries a good brand of Melatonin-Natrol)

    15-20 mintues before going to bed, take 5-15mg of melatonin, and along with the PATHS Sleep Module, you will probably have the best sleep in years!

    Important notes:

    1. Melatonin supplements should only have melatonin in them, possibly with calcium, but nothing else! I have actually seen companines that combine a stimulant with their melatonin-what they were thinking is beyond me.

    2. There is information out there that melatonin is not available in the UK. It is, and here is a link for those of you in the UK that want to get melatonin.

    For those in the USA, Natrol is a good brand, and it can be had at Walmart and most any health food store. We have also had good reports that the Puritan brand is good. ( )

    The bottom lines:

    Many people get a great nights sleep with the PATHS Sleep Module
    Many people get a great nights sleep with the Extra Strength Booster Sleep module

    Some of us need both the Extra Strength Booster and the melatonin, and that is ok!

    This is very true!

    I have had trouble all my life getting to sleep and staying asleep.

    Before I found PATHS, I was using tryptophan, and then melatonin. (I have also tried many other things like damiana)

    All these things helped...but I still found it very hard to fall asleep, and I continually woke up and took a long time to fall back asleep.

    When I started using PATHS I stopped using the melatonin. It was definitely a better sleep, but I still found it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep.

    Finally, when I combined taking melatonin and the PATHS Extra Strength Sleep Booster, I can now fall right to sleep and stay asleep all night long!!!

    This combination (PATHS and Melatonin) is the only thing that has worked for me in over 35 years!


    P.S. I still stay up past when I should, but it is not because I cannot go to sleep...I just choose to stay up, when it would probably be wiser to go to bed.

        Interesting information regarding Melatonin

        5-htp, L-theanine, are both good supplements, but make sure you do not take them too close to going to sleep...not after mid afternoon. Contrary to popular belief out there that these help a person sleep, they, in fact, will cause restless sleep.

        One vitamin company, Schiff, actually combines L-theanine, with their melatonin supplement, saying it will help a person sleep better. This is NOT true. L-theanine will relax someone, but it also stimulates serotonin production, which is NOT good when one is trying to sleep

          More information on Melatonin

          PATHS Sleep Module encourages the body to produce the optimum amount of melatonin. Unfortunately not everyones bodies will do so. In these instances, a Melatonin supplement can be beneficial. A good Melatonin supplement will have only melatonin in it, and possibly calcium or magnesium.

          Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland, a pea-size structure at the center of the brain, as our eyes register the fall of darkness." At night melatonin is produced to help our bodies regulate our sleep-wake cycles. The amount of melatonin produced by our body seems to lessen as we get older. Scientists believe this may be why young people have less problem sleeping than older people.

          Are there any side-effects?

          According to one report, "10 percent of the users said the hormone did nothing for them, and another 10 percent complained of side effects such as nightmares, headaches, morning groginess, mild depression, and low sex drive. In past studies, researchers have given people up to 600 to 3,000 times the usual doses - without causing any toxicity."

          Should certain people avoid it?

          Yes. "Those include women who are pregnant or nursing (since no one knows how excessive exposure to the hormone might affect a fetus or infant); people with severe allergies or autoimmune diseases (melatonin could exacerbate such conditions by stimulating the immune system); people with immune-system cancers such as lymphoma or leukemia (for the same reason), and healthy children (who already produce it in abundance). Women trying to conceive should also think twice about taking the hormone, since high doses can act as a contraceptive." As with any substance introduced into your body, if you have a medical condition you should always consult your physician first before taking melatonin.

          Is melatonin safe?

          Melatonin is one of the least toxic substances known. People have taken as much as 6 grams (600 to 3000 times the normal dosage) of the substance in carefully monitored studies with no sign of toxicity. Only four complaints regarding melatonin have been report to the FDA (USA's Food and Drug Administration). The only consistent side effect of high doses has been drowsiness and a slower reaction time. In the most extensive clinical trial to date a high dose of 75 milligrams of melatonin per day was given to 1400 women in the Netherlands for up to four years with no ill effects. The FDA reports that in the more than two years melatonin has been available for sale over-the-counter in the United States, no alarming side effects have been reported.
