    Sregan, It's interesting that Molybdenum helps your sleep. What brand and dosage do you use? Thanks.

    I would be curious to know which of the two, the molybdenum or the boron, has more of the impact towards improving your sleep. I am betting the molybdenum but maybe an experiment would be in order? Have you thought of taking the magnesium glycinate at bedtime instead of in the morning?

    It's either the Boron or both together. Moly doesn't give me anything noticable by itself. I have taken Mag and Cal at bedtime. It might be worth taking twice per day. I might try that.

    I screwed up my sleep last night. Not sure what. I took 1/2 tab of (25mg) zinc chelate which usually wires me a little. I assume I'm not taking co-factors I need for something zinc is doing. I also had 2 soft boiled eggs for breakfast and believe the sulfur might have effected me. I had dreams of being chased, where I cannot stop for even a second. Those type of dreams seem to always be mercury related. If I have cilantro I can usually count on dreams like that also. The 3rd possibility is that I bought a 3" memory foam mattress topper. I left the thing in my garage for 3 days to air out but could still smell the thing. I guess I'll know tonight whether or not that was a factor. Today I'm excluding the zinc and the eggs.

    I take zinc, too, but only in the morning. Taken later, it screws up my sleep.

    When I've taken it at night, I've had vivid dreams and frequent awakenings.

    It's odd: Zinc does help some people with sleep. Lots of people take ZMA before bed and do great with it. That supplement is like insomnia in a pill for me.
