| Schiff Knock Out is a combination of Melatonin, Valerian and Theanine.
Melatonin is a metabolic hormone made in the pineal gland, retina,
and intestines. Melatonin is released into the blood stream by the pineal gland
(which resides in the brain) to set your body¡¯s biological clock
and initiate sleep. Darkness stimulates the pineal gland and causes it to produce
more melatonin. Day light stops your body¡¯s production of melatonin.
Melatonin helps to promote healthy sleep patterns. Melatonin also protects cells
from free radical damage, and directs the release of growth and sex hormones.
Theanine is believed to be the primary component of green tea
that provides a relaxing effect. Theanine is an amino acid derivative of glutamine.
Oral doses of 50 and 200 mg of theanine given to healthy volunteers promoted
alpha brain wave production. Alpha waves are associated with a calm mental state.
Theanine helps to induce a state of calm relaxation.
Valerian is known for its calming effects, and also used as a
sleep aid. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter
(message sender) in the brain. GABA plays a role in regulating sleep-wake cycles,
and is involved in initiation of sleep. Melatonin, theanine and Valerian extracts
all interact with the GABA receptor.
Guaranteed for purity, freshness and label potency.
Primary Uses: Sleep aid and calming (relaxation).
Secondary Uses: Jet lag, antioxidant, mood, PMS.
Valerian extract (Valerian officinalis) (root)
GABA (Gamma aminobutyric acid)
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) Knock-Out tablet at bedtime or as recommended

I was experiencing extreme insomnia after returning to work after surgery. I was basically sleeping 2 or 3 hours a night at best. The first night I took the Knockout around 10:00 pm, I had already been awake since about midnight the night before. Within an hour I was out and I slept more soundly than I had in such a long time. The best part though was that I did not experience a sleep or pill hangover the next morning. (unlike other sleep aids) I highly recommend giving it a try.

I have been taking KNOCKOUT for over three months now; one pill a night usually 30min-1hour before I go to sleep. It doesn't seem to make me feel too tired, but as soon as I lay down I'm out for the night. I feel very calm and relaxed. I even stopped taking my depression medication because I have been feeling better. I sleep through the night and this is the only pill I have taken that doesn't make me feel tired when I wake up, and I honestly mean that. It's wonderful.

I take 2 pills a half hour before bed and i was able to sleep eight hours uninterrupted. Amazing for me.

My husband has taken Knock Out numerous times and all it has done is what it's supposed to - knocked him out and given him a full, uninteruppted night of sleep.
I, however, had a frightening experience with it. The first time I took a full pill, I slept for fourteen hours. Given that I have three children and a working husband, this was not an ideal effect.
