Shown to be effective if you have an overactive mind or wake frequently, this gamma-aminobutyric acid supplement also is used to boost neurotransmitters to treat mild depression and anxiety. May be taken as needed during the day for anxiety, and there is no contradiction with anti-depressant medication. 200mg of Zen may even be used to treat neck, shoulder, and back tension. It can be combined with Melatonin CR if you need extra help falling back asleep after waking.
Carol LeCroy’s Recommendation: A very popular formula that has been well received by my patients. It has a gentle but effective relaxing effect. Currently my favorite sleep aid.
Dosage: 1 or 2 capsules per day taken at bedtime or as needed during the day. Best taken on an empty stomach
