This is Jobee Knight from Nutrition Breakthroughs. I would like every customer of Sleep Minerals II to get the full benefits of the product and enjoy the restful, deep sleep they desire. Here are some tips and advice I’ve put together over the years, from learning how to coach people to use the product successfully.
Sleep Minerals II is the original drug-free calcium and magnesium formula for better sleep. It calms sleeplessness and insomnia and helps you to relax, fall asleep and sleep deeper.
It’s also helpful for heart health, restless leg syndrome, bone strength, menopause insomnia, muscle cramps, premenstrual syndrome and teenage insomnia. As well as containing calcium and magnesium, Sleep Minerals II contains vitamin D and zinc and is delivered in a softgel form mixed with natural rice bran oil, making it better assimilated and absorbed than tablets or capsules and providing a deeper, longer-lasting sleep.
Richard P. of Parkville Maryland says: “The Sleep Minerals are making quite a difference. I was regularly waking up at around 3:00 a.m. and after a week or so my sleep improved quite a lot. I wake once a night to go to the bathroom, but the great thing is, I then fall back asleep and sleep several more hours. This has been a great improvement.”
Here are the tips on using Sleep Minerals II:
1) Some of my customers have asked me with amazement: “What is in this product? Is it really all-natural?” I want you to know that even though the product is effective at helping people fall sleep or get back to sleep in the night, it is made from only natural minerals and vitamins — it’s just a potent formula. Sleep Minerals II is a safe product. The factory that makes it has been certified as having Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and all ingredients are sourced in the USA.
2) Keep the bottle of softgels by your bed. For difficulty falling asleep, take 1 softgel with water 30 to 45 minutes before bed. Go to the bathroom before bed so you’re not woken up to go too often during the night. If you are sensitive to supplements or minerals, start with 1 softgel for several nights. In any case, its best to stay with one softgel for about a week.
If after a week or so you are unable to get to sleep, increase to 2 softgels before bed. Reduce the dose if you become drowsy during the day or your bowels become too loose. Use 1 softgel for kids over 10
3) Gradually building up the minerals in your system is the best approach to gaining better sleep. It may take days or weeks of use to get the best results. Some people start noticing good effects after the first or second week of use – some sooner, some later. Be sure to continue taking the product as consistency is the key.
4) If you are taking the product before bedtime and have a drowsy feeling in the morning or your bowels become too loose, you can take it earlier than at bedtime. For example, take it with dinner or an hour or two before bedtime with a snack. The food will act as a buffer to help avoid any stomach upset from the minerals.
If one softgel continues to be too much, you can gently bite one end open and squeeze half the contents of a softgel into your mouth or onto some food. You can also open the softgel with the sharp point of a knife This is also a good approach if the softgels are too big for you to swallow. Save the other half in a baggie or other container.
This is worth doing if you find you need to, as some people require less to get better results. Even if you’re taking just half a softgel, it’s important to be consistent with it. Another option is to take a half before bed and another half if you wake up and can’t get back to sleep. Taking a smaller amount during the night (rather than a whole one) is better.
5) Note: If someone takes too much calcium for them, the formula may have a stimulating effect and keep them awake. If this occurs, reduce the amount you’re taking and it should have a more relaxing effect. If you’re only taking one, you can bite the end open and take just part of a softgel.
Here are some additional tips I have found to be helpful for improving one’s sleep:
* Take a walk outside each day. Walk around and look at the surroundings and find things you have never noticed before. It is more of an extroverting activity rather than the exercise factor. If you look at a computer a lot of the day, find some large things outside to see such as buildings, trees, clouds, etc. Look for things that are a different size or shape than the things you normally look at inside. This can refresh you and allow relaxation and sleep to occur better.
* Try your best to turn off any electronics an hour before bedtime (computer, TV, texting, etc.) and do something relaxing just before bed.
* If you are taking any medications in the evening, its best to take them an hour apart from the Sleep Minerals. This is because each thing may have a different effect and it works better to keep them separate.
I look forward to staying in touch with you and to hearing any questions, comments, or beneficial improvements to your sleep. Let me know how you do by emailing me at email@example.com.
There is a helpful chart below with some healthy foods that are rich in calcium. In research studies, calcium has been shown to strengthen bones, prevent osteoporosis, relax the nerves and muscles, soothe insomnia, and remedy the symptoms of menopause and PMS.
Calcium is an effective insomnia remedy. A calcium deficiency is associated with difficulty in falling asleep per a study called “The Nutritional Relationships of Magnesium”. The author notes that the classical sign of magnesium deficiency is falling asleep rather easily, but awakening frequently throughout the night and finding oneself tired even after several hours of sleep.
Calcium and magnesium should be taken in a 2 to 1 ratio, with twice as much calcium taken as magnesium. This is from a study in the Journal of Physiological Reviews.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, one of the leading chiropractic and nutritional journals, published a study called “Hair calcium and magnesium levels in patients with fibromyalgia – a case center study.”
Fibromyalgia is a condition with chronic pain, multiple tender points in joints and muscles and sleep disturbances. After their tests, the researchers found that calcium and magnesium supplements are indicated as an additional beneficial treatment of fibromyalgia.
Regarding calcium for good bone health, a recent study of 70,000 people from a report in the British Medical Journal confirmed that taking both calcium and vitamin D together on a daily basis significantly reduced the risk of bone fractures after menopause.

Does calcium help with menopause?
Calcium is proven for good bone health in menopause. A recent study of 70,000 people from a report in the British Medical Journal confirmed that taking both calcium and vitamin D together on a daily basis significantly reduced the risk of bone fractures after menopause.
How much calcium do you need during menopause?
Food sources of calcium are absorbed the best. Almonds, broccoli, yogurt, sardines and leafy greens are great. For those who don’t eat much of these foods, a supplement containing 1,000 milligrams of calcium, 500 milligrams of magnesium and 400 milligrams of vitamin D is a good place to start. It can be taken in divided doses.
There’s a great chart below that shows some of the most famous and effective remedies for sinus infections and colds. For example, garlic is a commonly used cold medicine. It is widely used in Russia and is known there as “Russian Penicillin”. Garlic supports immune function and it can kill bacteria, parasites, fungus and the flu virus. One test-tube study showed that fresh garlic kills various viruses, including one which can cause flu like symptoms.
Horseradish is another plant that can ease throat and upper respiratory tract infections. It has been shown specifically to destroy the flu virus and reduce the severity of flu infections in animals. This plant is a member of the mustard family. You may have found that eating horseradish can make your eyes water and nose run. Indeed, it can create a similar release of watery fluids inside the bronchial passages of the lungs which helps to flush them out and wash away congestion.
Vitamin C is one of the most famous boosts to immunity. In addition to enhancing the activity of immune cells, vitamin C acts as a vital component in the production of collagen, the principal protein found in all connective tissues. By helping to maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissue structures, vitamin C keeps infections from spreading throughout the body (from the Handbook of Vitamins).
Enjoy the chart and here’s to your good health.

Sleep Minerals II may also be helpful for colds. Calcium can lower fever and zinc accelerates the growth of immune cells while preventing the replication of cold-causing viruses. In one study where people with colds were given zinc lozenges, sore throats disappeared after 1 day versus 3 days in the placebo group, nasal drainage in 4 days (versus 7 days), and headache in 2 days (versus 3 days).

Here’s a handy chart that shows all the many benefits of walking. Whether it’s a walk around the mall or around the block, walking provides an almost unlimited number of health benefits.
Walking has been proven to remedy depression and boost one’s mood. A study from the Archives of Internal Medicine found that people who were experiencing depression improved greatly with daily walks. The researchers found that those taking the walks had as much betterment in their symptoms as those taking anti-depressant drugs and the benefits lasted longer than medications.
Another study from the Harvard School of Public Health discovered that regular, moderate physical activity such as brisk walking can extend one’s life by several years, even for people who are overweight – and these health betterments were demonstrated regardless of age, sex, weight or various health situations.
Walking remedies insomnia and helps good sleep. Studies at the University of Arizona found that walking more than six blocks a day at a normal pace significantly improved sleep at night for women. Scientists suspect that exercise helps set our biological clock into a consistent wake/sleep pattern, or it may boost the brain’s production of serotonin, a neurochemical that encourages sleep.
Here’s the “Top 20” chart:

Carxela says: “My son is not using prescription sleep drugs any more. He has suffered from sleep problems and Sleep Minerals II has helped him sleep better while getting away from using the prescription medications that he was taking. My son has been taking this product for about 8 months now.”
Richard P. of Parkville, Maryland says: “The Sleep Minerals are making quite a difference. I was regularly waking at around 3:00 a.m. and after a few days use my sleep improved quite a lot. I wake once a night to go to the bathroom, but the great thing is, I then fall back asleep and sleep several more hours. This has been a great improvement.”
Restless Leg Syndrome as a disruptive condition that affects the nervous system and up to 10% of the U.S. population have some form of it.
It results in an irresistible urge to move the legs (and sometimes the arms), often accompanied by unpleasant sensations in the legs such as creeping, crawling, tingling, pulling or pain.
Because RLS most often occurs in the evening, it can disrupt sleep, contribute to insomnia, and reduce a person’s quality of life. RLS tends to run in families. A few natural remedies have been shown to help calm the symptoms of restless legs.
The B vitamins are nourishing and essential for the good nervous system health. A study from the journal “Alternative Medicine Review” found that administration of folic acid (one of the B vitamins) alleviated the symptoms of RLS and may play a role in the treatment of primary, familial RLS. As a note, the B vitamins work together as a group and should be taken together in a supplement. This will prevent creating a deficiency in the others by taking only one of the whole group, such as folic acid (also known as vitamin B8). Some of the other B vitamins include thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and niacin (vitamin B3).
In the article “Restless Leg Syndrome Responds to Calcium” by Peter Gott, M.D., he says: “Calcium has been found to be helpful in relieving nocturnal (night time) leg cramps, and some RLS sufferers have also found that it is beneficial in preventing symptoms when taken just prior to sleep…… Other deficiencies, most notably iron, magnesium, folic acid and B vitamins, are also known to cause RLS symptoms in some.”
A recent study published in the journal of “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise” gave the results of various forms of exercise on people who suffer with periodic leg movements (PLM). PLM is a night-time condition with similar symptoms to RLS in which sufferers experience a repetitive cramping or jerking of the legs during sleep. The results showed that both intense short-term exercise and longer term exercise lowered the symptoms and greatly aided with falling sleep and staying asleep. (A tip would be to exercise earlier in the day as it may be stimulating if done too close to bed time).
Magnesium deficiency is a key factor in RLS. Studies in the Journal “Sleep” and the “Romanian Journal of Neurology and Psychiatry” have found magnesium to be an effective natural therapy for RLS. Insomnia remedies should have a 2 to 1 ratio of calcium to magnesium (twice as much calcium as magnesium). The original research on this ratio appeared in 1935 in the Journal of Physiological Reviews.
Andrew Weil, M.D. says that using drugs for restless leg syndrome – many of which have serious side effects – should be employed only as a last resort. He suggests RLS sufferers take a calcium/magnesium supplement at bedtime, do some form of daily exercise, stretch or massage their legs, take a hot bath to relax the legs, and stop smoking if they do so, as smoking may impair blood flow to the leg muscles. Since caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco can trigger symptoms, avoiding all three substances can also bring relief.
One natural sleep remedy showing good results with restless leg syndrome is Sleep Minerals II made by Nutrition Breakthroughs. It contains highly absorbable forms of the best minerals and vitamins for relaxation: Calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D. The ingredients are delivered in a softgel form with carrier oils, making them more easily assimilated than capsules or tablets and providing a deeper, longer-lasting sleep.
A Sleep Minerals II user in Missouri says: “This combo in softgel form really works to calm nerves and restless legs, often in as little as 20 minutes. I’m at mid-life and I find that going too many days without this product and I am edgy and anxious, AND I don’t sleep well.”
Anne B. of El Dorado Hills, California says: “We find the Sleep Minerals very helpful for my husbands restless leg syndrome. He does not do well on many medications and the drug that the doctor prescribed him for this condition was full of bad side effects. Out of pure desperation, I researched the internet and came up with an article about the Sleep Minerals II and decided to try them. Sleep Minerals have been wonderful and we are both now getting a good night’s sleep. Bob continues to sleep much better and with very little if any movement in his legs. We are both grateful for this product and are glad to see that something as natural as Sleep Minerals II can have such a positive result.”

The Top 3 Anti Inflammatory Foods for Better Sleep and Good Health
Inflammation comes into play in our bodies when bacteria, viruses, damaged cells or unhealthy substances are recognized and attacked by our immune system. Without immunity and inflammation, healing would not take place.
This system defends our health and is made up of white blood cells called “lymphocyte cells”, “natural killer cells” and others – many of which originate in the bone marrow and then travel in the blood to organs and tissues.
In a healthy body, inflammation smooths the healing process but for some people, the body can become confused and begin to mount a defense against its own tissues. This can lead to arthritis, celiac disease, irritable bowel disease and other “autoimmune” conditions. In fact, inflammation has been shown to be at the root of the majority of health conditions we face such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and more.
Eating naturally anti-inflammatory foods can reduce the symptoms of inflammation and disease and help to repair and heal the body. Here are the top three food-based anti inflammatory foods.
Vitamin D Foods
Vitamin D has been the subject of many studies for its potent anti-inflammation properties. The foods highest in vitamin D include sardines, wild caught salmon, mackerel, herring, maitake mushrooms, cod liver oil, and organic vitamin D fortified milk and yogurt.
A study from the Journal of Investigative Medicine found that vitamin D has important functions beyond those of supporting calcium and bones in the body. It concluded that vitamin D is a boost to immunity and a deficiency is common in autoimmune disease, where the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake.
Vitamin D has also been studied for its benefits with sleeplessness and insomnia. The results of a vitamin D study was published in a recent issue of the journal “Medical Hypothesis”. The researchers followed 1500 patients over a 2 year period. A consistent level of vitamin D was maintained in their blood over many months.
This produced normal sleep in most of the participants, regardless of their type of sleep disorder, which suggests that many types of insomnia may share the same cause. During the research, the authors discovered the presence of high concentrations of vitamin D “receiving sites” or “receptors” in those areas of the brain that are related to the onset and maintenance of sleep.
A recent research study in the journal “Nutrients” has a lot of good things to say about the benefits of walnuts. The authors say: “Walnuts could be predicted to be more anti inflammatory than other nuts for two reasons. First, walnuts are the only nuts that contain substantial amounts of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid is a kind of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants).
ALA is described as one of the more anti-inflammatory fatty acids. And second, walnuts are also particularly rich in ellagic acid (a natural plant chemical found in fruits and vegetables), which has shown potent anti-inflammatory properties in experimental studies.”
Eating a handful of walnuts before bedtime may also be a good way to soothe sleeplessness and insomnia due to the melatonin they contain. Russel Reiter, Ph.D., a professor of cellular biology at the University of Texas says: “Relatively few foods have been examined for their melatonin content. Our studies demonstrate that walnuts contain melatonin, that it is absorbed when it is eaten, and that it improves our ability to resist the stress caused by toxic molecules. Walnuts also contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to inhibit certain types of cancer and to keep the heart healthy.”
Oleic acid is the main fatty acid found in olive oil. This substance has been shown to greatly reduce levels of inflammation in the body. A study from the “Current Pharmaceutical Design” journal writes that “Chronic inflammation is a critical factor in the development of many inflammatory disease states including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, degenerative joint diseases and neurodegenerative diseases. Popular methods to deal with inflammation and its associated symptoms involve the use of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, however the use of these drugs are associated with severe side effects.”
”Therefore, investigations concerned with natural methods of inflammatory control are warranted. A traditional Mediterranean diet has been shown to confer some protection against chronic diseases through the reduction of pro-inflammatory foods and this has been partially attributed to the high intake of virgin olive oil in this diet. Virgin olive oil contains numerous compounds that exert potent anti-inflammatory actions.”
The anti-inflammatory effects of olive oil also extend to brain health and it’s known to help with depression and insomnia. Olive oil can help balance hormones and keep the neurotransmitters in the brain functioning well. Neurotransmitters are those molecules that keep the cellular communications moving.
In another study from the journal “Nutrients” researchers found that people who eat a Mediterranean diet of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, legumes and fish have better sleep quality. In fact, the authors said that “exclusion of no individual component, besides olive oil, showed significant association with the aspects of sleep quality, including sleep duration and efficiency. This suggests that olive oil may play an independent role in sleep quality.”
Olive may accomplish this benefit to good sleep by stabilizing blood sugar levels, calming the heart, inducing relaxation, and cleansing the body of toxins,
Other top anti-inflammation foods include broccoli, green leafy vegetables, blueberries, bok choi, pineapple, coconut oil, turmeric, ginger, wild salmon, beets, garlic, oysters, yogurt and other probiotic dairy foods. Enjoy a wide variety of them to reduce inflammation, increase overall health, and ensure a good, sound sleep.

What is the most effective natural anti inflammatory?
Vitamin D rich foods such as sardines, wild caught salmon, mackerel, herring, cod liver oil, and organic vitamin D fortified milk and yogurt. Other top ones include natural fats like walnuts and especially olive oil. Additional foods are broccoli, green leafy vegetables, blueberries, pineapple, coconut oil, turmeric, ginger, beets, garlic and oysters.
Can anti inflammatory foods help arthritis?
In a healthy body, inflammation smooths the healing process but for some people, the body can become confused and begin to mount a defense against its own tissues. This can lead to arthritis, celiac disease, irritable bowel disease and other “autoimmune” conditions. Eating naturally anti inflammatory foods can reduce the symptoms of inflammation and help to repair and heal the body.
Do anti inflammatory foods work?
One study from Italy found that an anti inflammatory Mediterranean-type diet reduces inflammation in women with diabetes and also provides cardiovascular benefits and healthier insulin sensitivity. A Mediterranean diet focuses mostly on vegetables, fruit, whole grains, olive oil, legumes and fish. Virgin olive oil in particular, contains numerous compounds that exert potent anti-inflammatory actions in the body.
The famous vitamin E is renowned for combating aging by keeping joint degeneration at bay and increasing eye and heart health. What is not so well known is that vitamin E can help aging skin to retain its smoothness, moisture and beauty.
Research from the World Congress of Public Health and Nutrition reports that more than 90% of Americans fall below the daily recommended amount of vitamin E. The recommended daily allowances are provided by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and for vitamin E it’s 15 milligrams per day.
The secret to vitamin E’s importance for both internal health and external beauty is similar to that of the other antioxidant vitamins (A and C) — their ability to undo the “free radical” damage that causes skin to develop lines and lose elasticity and firmness.
Free radicals are damaging molecules that come from a reaction of oxygen inside the body. They come from pollution, smoke, medications, infection, stress, toxic chemicals, a poor diet, and also as a byproduct of normal digestion and metabolism.
“Anti-oxidants (or anti oxygen substances) such as vitamins E, C and A can help to defend the body against free radical damage and repair it. These nutrients can assist to create skin that is firm and luminous, and incorporating both nutritional and topical approaches can be of benefit.
Topical Vitamin E in Dermatology
Vitamin E is a popular skin treatment because of its ability to stop reactive oxygen molecules from altering the formation of collagen. Collagen is the main protein in connective tissue, bone and other key tissues in the body. Vitamin E also maintains the elasticity in cellular spaces that provide the balance necessary to preserve skin moisture.
A dramatic example of vitamin E’s effectiveness for skin health comes from a study done at Ohio State University. Scientists there found that one particular form of Vitamin E called ‘tocotrienol’ could significantly reduce the amount of damage caused by burns. They concluded that “This model (research) shows that if the level of tocotrienol in the skin is increased five-fold within the first six to twelve hours after a burn, subsequent burn damage will be reduced by at least 50 percent.”
Topical Vitamins Can Boost Beautiful Skin
In addition to Vitamin E, Vitamins C and A are also used in modern skincare to boost skin health and smoothness. In fact, all three vitamins work together to promote the production of collagen. As noted by Leslie Kenton in her best-selling book “The Skin Revolution”, Vitamin C is essential and plays an important role in a transformation in your skin cells, taking up the important amino acid, proline, and using it to make new collagen.”
Does Diet Matter?
What a person eats can have a great affect on their skin’s appearance. It is important to consume an antioxidant-rich diet to ensure the cells are well guarded against the ravaging effects of free radicals. Avoid refined ingredients such as white flour and sugar, which cause the collagen fibers (which should be present in tidy bundles) to tangle and become crossed up. The result can be lines, wrinkles and aging skin.
A diet featuring quality proteins like fish and grass-fed meats, seasonal vegetables and fruits, and healthy fats such as olive oil, is recommended for its richness in the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.
Boosting Your Vitamin E Intake
Foods which contain good amounts of Vitamin E include nuts, seeds, avocado, leafy green vegetables, broccoli, butternut squash, olive oil, trout and kiwi fruit. Try if possible to buy organic fruits and vegetables, since recent studies have shown they contain significantly higher levels of antioxidants than conventionally grown produce. They also contain less heavy metals, and since they are pesticide-free, they help reduce the skin’s toxic burden.
Vitamin E can be a great part of one’s skincare routine, and there are an abundance of skincare products in natural food stores that contain this fat-soluble powerhouse. Combine a nutritional approach with a daily skincare routine, to give the skin all the nutrients it needs to glow from within. If a person has very sensitive skin, it’s possible that topical vitamins in skincare products can be an irritant. In this case, test a small amount of any product and wait several hours before using it liberally. For all the beautifying benefits it provides, be sure to add vitamin E-rich foods to your diet.

Exercise such as walking may be one of the most effective ways to reduce menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia and heart symptoms.
From the April 2007 issue of the Annals of Behavioral Medicine comes a study from Steriani Elavsky, a kinesiologist. Kinesiology is the study of human movement and motion.
The study included 164 menopausal women in their 50’s who were experiencing hot flashes and insomnia and who were somewhat non-active. They were put into three different groups – walkers, yoga-doers and sedentary non-exercisers, and were studied for four months.
The groups that reported their stress and tension were reduced, as well as having a betterment in their quality of life, were the women who walked regularly or took yoga classes. Women who walked derived the most benefit in terms of menopause symptom improvements, but yoga was also beneficial.
Elavsky concluded: “We found a significant association between changes in cardiorespiratory (heart and lung) fitness and changes in menopausal symptoms. Women who experienced decreases in menopausal symptoms in the study also experienced improvements in all positive mental health and quality-of-life outcomes.”
This information is provided by Nutrition Breakthroughs, maker of the effective natural insomnia remedy Sleep Minerals II. Sleep Minerals II contains highly absorbable forms of the best minerals for relaxation — calcium and magnesium. The ingredients are delivered in a softgel form with carrier oils, making them more easily assimilated than capsules or tablets and providing a deeper, longer-lasting sleep.
Valerie H. of Santa Clarita, California says: “I had such severe menopause insomnia that it took me hours to fall asleep even though I was extremely tired. My legs also had crawling and tingling feelings at night. I got the Sleep Minerals II and after about a week, it started to work really well. I fall asleep now within 20 minutes and no more restless legs.”
This is Jobee Knight from Nutrition Breakthroughs. I would like every customer of Sleep Minerals II to get the full benefits of the product and enjoy the restful, deep sleep they desire. Here are some tips and advice I’ve put together over the years, from learning how to coach people to use the product successfully.
1) Some of my customers have asked me with amazement: “What is in this product? Is it really all-natural?” I want you to know that even though the product is effective in helping people get to sleep or get back to sleep in the night, it is made from only natural minerals and vitamins — it’s just a potent formula.
Sleep Minerals II is a safe product. The factory that makes Sleep Minerals II has been certified as having Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) from the Natural Products Association, and is registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
2) Keep the bottle of softgels by your bed, along with a glass or bottle of water.
3) For difficulty falling asleep, take 1 to 2 softgels with water. To ensure a sound sleep, take the softgel 30 to 45 minutes before bedtime. If you’re sensitive to supplements at all, start with 1. Even if you decide to take more during the night, it’s important to take at least one at the beginning of the night before bedtime, to get the night started out in a good direction.
4) If you wake up during the night and are unable go back to sleep, take an additional half a softgel with water. To do this, bite one end open and squeeze half out with your teeth. Drink it down with water or spread it on a cracker or other piece of food. Save the remainder in a baggie or other container.
5) If you feel drowsy in the morning, take the product further away from the morning-time. For example, if you take it at 4:00 or 5:00 a.m. to go back to sleep, try to take it earlier in the night next time so it’s in your system for a longer period prior to the morning.
6) If you are only taking the product before bedtime and have a drowsy feeling in the morning, take it earlier than at bedtime. For example, take it with dinner or an hour or two before bedtime with a snack, rather than 30 minutes before bedtime.
If you get indigestion or gas or your bowels become too loose after taking the product and you are only taking one softgel at a time, take it with some food or a meal to minimize this effect. If you’re taking more than one, reduce the number of softgels you take. You can also take half a softgel, as described above. The important thing is to get a dose that works for you. When changing the amount you take, keep that amount steady for several days to learn if this is the right dose.
7) If you experience an “energetic” effect from the Sleep Minerals, this may be due to a deficiency of calcium or magnesium and is a sign that your body is drinking up the minerals that it is missing. If this occurs, take the product earlier in the day rather than at bedtime. This will still assist your better sleep as you will be getting the minerals into your system earlier and it will help overall relaxation. You can also reduce your dose.
8) It may take days or weeks of consecutive use to see the best results and the longer you use the product, the better the effects will be. After a span of time, you may need to take less of the Sleep Minerals to get the same effect, as you will have provided more minerals to your body.
9) If you prefer not to swallow the softgels, here are a couple of options for you. Bite one end open and press the contents onto a cracker or on top of peanut butter, etc. and eat it. Follow with some water. Another option is to squeeze the contents into your mouth and drink it down with some water. It’s like a creamy paste inside with mixed minerals and a bit of oil, and the flavor is mild. This paste is the essence of what makes the minerals very absorbable.
10) If you are taking any medications in the evening, its best to take them an hour apart from the Sleep Minerals – either an hour before or an hour after. This is because each thing may have a different effect and its best to keep them separate.
11) Another thing that will help you sleep is taking a walk outside each day or in the evening. Look around at things and enjoy the view. This will help your body relax better at night.
12) In addition to insomnia, Sleep Minerals II also provides excellent nutritional support for bone health, osteoporosis, tense muscles, menopausal symptoms, restless leg syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, colon health and heart health.
I look forward to staying in touch with you and to hearing any questions, comments, or beneficial improvements to your sleep. To order or re-order Sleep Minerals II, visit this page.
