This is pretty close to what I remember about it
As for zma, you aren't supposed to take it with calcium for best results. I tried not taking in any calcium within an hour or so from bedtime. When you first start taking it it really works well. I don't notice much effect now after taking it for a couple years. I'm doing a washout now and will start taking it again soon. About the only "supplement" that helps me sleep is going to the gym.

Does anyone know if adding ground flaxseed into my suplements when I am alredy taking fish oil, overkill. I have heard that too much vitamin e can contribute to prostate cancer. Or can I just drop one and do the other. I would think that fish oil would be best but the fiber and quick energy from flax seed is tempting. Plus I am not if flaxseed helps with joint pain.
I don't believe melatonin is a placebo either. You may be taking way to much. I bought some 3mg tablets and they would give me the crazy dreams and grogginess. Now I only take a quarter of tablet, still get drowsy, have some mildly weird dreams (instead of outright insane), and wake up feeling fine.

I've been trying melatonin since it was spoken of here. I think it works. It seems to help me get to sleep and sleep sounder once I am asleep. That is, I don't wake up, toss & turn as much, etc. However, it seems best for me when I know I can get 6-7 hours of sleep. If I have to get up after <= 5 hours it does seem to have a groggy effect.

What do you all look for in fish oil? I've followed the advice of Robb Wolf and others to fish oil with high levels of EPA and DHA. I was in the Vitamin Shoppe the other day and saw liquid Carlson with 800mg EPA and 500mg DHA per teaspoon - which are about the highest levels I've seen in a fish oil product. Instead of the Carlson's I opted for the Vitamin Shoppe labeled fish oil that had the same EPA/DHA levels as the Carlsons.
Here's a good article by Dr. Michael Eades on why he believes that krill oil is better than fish oil as far as Omega 3-FA's and antiinflammatory effects:
I have noticed ZERO difference when I take fish oil or when I stop taking it after a long period of time.
However, I definitely notice a difference in my recovery when I am taking creatine.
