TrueDark™ Twilight Glasses: Ok, these are definitely more pricy than the Uvex, so we recommend starting with those, and only "upgrading" later. These glasses by Biohacked are specifically designed to block the entirety of all wavelengths which might stop melatonin production. You put them on and it's like.... I'm tired. Melanie likes starting the evening with the Uvex, and then transition to the Twilight glasses right before bed.

Dr. Kirk Parsley's Sleep Remedy: This is the ultimate sleep supplement, which Melanie cannot recommend enough! It was developed by Dr. Kirk Parlsey after years of research and experimentation to naturally restore sleep to the sleep-deprived, insomniac Navy Seals. Rather than knocking you out with drugs, this simply provides the necessary neurotransmitters and nutrients in the perfect amounts to naturally support your body's sleep process. Melanie recommends choosing the new Sleep Remedy Capsule versions, which contain NO fillers! She also recommends starting small, and titrating up as needed. Rather than taking the recommended multi-capsule dosage, she's actually personally found the best effects with a mere 1/4 - 1/3 of a capsule! Oh hey sleep efficiency AND money saving!! Use the code MELANIEAVALON for more savings. Yey yey.
