I keep experimenting, trying new things and my latest success story is with Relora. It contains magnolia bark and another compound and is very relaxing and is helping with sleep. I'm taking 2 capsules before bed and one in the middle of the night when I wake up. I fall asleep earlier and sleep deeper. I also take melatonin and l-theanine before bed, and more l-theanine in the middle of the night with relora. I also take 0.5 mg. of lorazepam in the middle of the night - that's my worst time.

But I do like the relora very much (at least for now!) Also, I had been taking a small dose of Seriphos figuring my cortisol was high, but have stopped that now, the Relora is doing the job by itself. Magnolia bark is one of the ingredients in Corti-Slim, which is supposed to help lower high cortisol.
