However, sometimes we forget that we can get targeted nutritional therapy using foods. Remember, eating salmon for Omega-3? Have you thought about Jell-O for sleep? The gelatin is a very high protein product with especially high amounts of glycine. Glycine has often been used for support for ADHD and seizures disorders, but also has some interesting research about its benefits for sleep (especially perimenopausal) and daytime performance and fatigue (1,2).
