After trying a whole list of things that didn't really work for me, what has done the trick was something called Travacor. It is a neurotransmitter support combo that happened to have most of the things that I tested low in. Surprisingly it helped after the first day!


I've tried many things also and found TravaCor to be the best thing that's work so far. It has Taurine, 5 htp (works like typtophan) and Suntheanine (I think this is from green tea that has a calming effect). Then it has all the vit.s to support these three things to make it work better. Those are vir. C, vit. B6, vit.B12, folate, mag., zinc, and selenium.

It's great and I really hope you give it a try. I only take one in the afternoon and one before bed.

I also take Magnesium (for migraines) and Calcium Citrate (because calcium is good for me). They seem to be helping I have been told Calcium can help with pms pain and also helps to relax you. My GI doctor said they are fine but keep in mind that magnesium can cause diarrhea if you are taking too much.

my herbal healing book recommends:
lemon balm (make tea), ginger( tea or in food), basil (tea or in food), valarian(sup.), and lavender (oil) as the top herbs for insomnia
although if you get pregnant I would make sure your it is ok with your dr.

good luck!

My mother swears on her herbal remedies: ginger and lemon balm tea is what she uses herself and gives to all of her friends who have similar problems!

I normally sleep pretty good. But sometimes an emotional issue will keep me up. I like GABA, it calms me down without any side effects.


I justed started using GNC's GABA (750mg, 2/day) myself. It helps me to sleep better and during the day I have less nervous stomach symptoms.How do you use your GABA? I'm asking because a competitive product from NOW FOODS (also 750mg) suggested using their product 1/day and "best without protein." The GNC label usage is 1-3/day and no respect to protein. My breakfast consists of 12 grams of protein. Therefore, I wait 30 minutes after taking GABA to eat. The GNC label says it meets UPS 2040 for disintegration.
I wonder if 30 minutes is to long or to short in time for sufficient absorption of GABA. How does protein interfere? Any comments would be appreciated.

You are responding to a 4 year old thread, FYI. These posters haven't been around in awhile.
