Dosage of Melatonin
guys, i was wondering what a safe dosage of melatonin would be, i'm taking the recomended 3mg and not getting much of anything. anyone else take it at higher dosages? also, what exactly does flaxseed do for you?

flaxseed oil has antiinflammatory and anti-clotting properties. i believe there was also a study showing improved insulin sensitivity with flaxseed supplementation. consuming the seeds may decrease cholesterol levels.

Try increasing it by intervals, first to 6mg, then to 9mg if necessary. Check your diets for any stimulants prior to sleep that you may be taking in. Flaxseed oil is used primarily by bodybuilders as an EFA (Essential Fatty Acid), and aids is essentially a "fat that helps you lose fat". It is commonly used in cutting diets.

I wouldn't go higher than 3mg's. It has some weird side effects. Such as inhibiting your ability to drive, etc... It's not meant to PUT you to sleep, just to help you GET to sleep. Just take 3mg at bedtime.
