Women's Anti-Stress Formula (Lactium)
I've had sleep problems for a number of years, mostly of the wake-up-too-early (and can't get back to sleep) variety. Have tried all sorts of things without much improvement.
Then I lucked onto this product. It is not a silver bullet for me, but it definitely helps, and did so from the first night I used it. I gave a dozen pills to a friend who said, in essence, that for her it is close to a silver bullet.
Swanson's name for the product is peculiar. Be advised that it is not just for women! And that the effect that I notice is specifically to help with sleep; I don't notice any effect on stress or response to stress.
To use the product for sleep, take it half an hour or so before bedtime. Ignore the instruction on the bottle to take it in the morning.
This product is uncomfortably pricey. But if it's the only thing that works, well, what is a good night's sleep worth?!

I use this when I wake up at night and want to fall back to sleep soon. It works pretty quickly. No hangover or grogginess the next morning.

This supplement contains a milk peptide that goes to the source of the stress by blocking the production of the stress hormone cortisol. I take it when I can't shut my mind down for sleep, or during the day when I am feeling a little on edge. Either way it works great, I am either off to la la land in no time at night, or during the day, it makes me calmer and more relaxed.

I think it helps
My stress level seems to have gone down since using this product. I definitely would order it again.

I haven't been taking this supplement long enough to make a qualified judgement but so far I have no complaints about it. I have read some good reports on this active ingredient so I will stay on it.

Lactium for quality steep
I have been using the Women's Anti stress Formula ( Lactium 167mg) for a couple of years,
to help me sleep.
I take it about 30 - 60 minutes before bed , I go to sleep rapidly, but even more important to me is that I wake up alert , without being groggy. There has been 2 different times that I had to jump out of bed, and drive after taking this formula, I felt I was in complete control behind the wheel.
I would recommend this product to anyone who has trouble sleeping. pat az

I am neither a woman nor particularly stressed, though I have perhaps a somewhat 'high strung' nature. I actually just tried this supplement as a prelude to giving some to a friend who is going through a lot of stress at work etc. To my delight it seems to work beautifully. I noticed no sense of sedation or dulling, just a definite lasting sense of relaxed clarity. This is after taking one capsule a bit before bed for several nights. It also seems conducive to better sleep. If my experience is representative, I predict Lactium will have a great career as a dietary supplement.

Milk peptides for calm and sleep
The effect is gentle but these definitely work. I tend to wake up in the middle of the night, I take two of these capsules and they usually help me get back to sleep with no side effects. I wish they were less expensive per capsule but Swanson's offers the best value on the market right now.
