Yes. While it is ideal to eventually not need the melatonin. When you begin using Sleep Reset it is perfectly fine to keep using melatonin. After a few weeks you may want to start trying it without melatonin.
For best results mix Sleep Reset in 3 to 4 ounces of warm water and drink 30 minutes before you go to bed. Usually within 15 minutes you may feel a subtle GABA effect (mild tingling). This effect usually lasts for 30 seconds to one minute. When the effect wears off you should feel a mild relaxing sensation. This is the best time to be in bed ready to sleep.
Many people drink alcohol in the evening and for some this is the only way they can unwind enough or shut the brain off enough to go to sleep. While alcohol might make you feel like you can get to sleep what it does in fact is ruin the depth or quality of your sleep. Alcohol creates a “fight or flight” stimulus in the body. This causes an increase in cortisol production. Cortisol has a 6-hour half-life. Which means it can be elevated in your body for about 6 hours after alcohol consumption. Cortisol is a dominant hormone…When it is in play it interrupts the production of your other anabolic hormones…like growth hormone. One glass of alcohol can cut growth hormone production by 65%. Two glasses can cut growth hormone production by 85%. We believe that happens because it is cutting your delta wave sleep in half. So, while it may feel like you sleep deep when you drink alcohol you are losing more than half of your deep sleep.
The Good News…
If you take Sleep Reset on a night that you drink alcohol it will bring your Delta wave and your REM back up to the levels that are considered optimal!
