Propan with Iron as a sleep aid

It's hard for me to get a good night's sleep. Can this vitamin help or what vitamin should I take to have a good night's sleep? Thanx. ## Propan with iron should help a little, as it contains Vitamin B6 and B12; but I personally think it will be more effective if you combine it with Vitamin D, folic acid, and B3. It is however best to get your vitamins from food rather than supplements if at all possible. Vitamin D deficiencies contribute to sleep irregularities (this may or may not be an issue for you). When you don't have enough, it affects your pineal gland's ability to regulate your circadian rhythms. These rhythms signal the cascade of sleep hormones involved in going to sleep and waking up. B Vitamins, especially B6, is also essential to sleep hormone productio...

mosvit tablet

multivitamins + minerals ## What are the benefits of Mosvit multivitamins since it was prescribed by my OB-gyne. ## The reason these are usually prescribed for women who are either pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or who may be deficient in certain nutrients is to rebalance the amount of needed nutrients in the body. For instance, very few women take in enough Folic Acid and if you are pregnant or trying to be, then this can cause severe birth defects so they must make sure you have an adequate amount to protect your baby. In addition many women are lacking in calcium and Vitamin D, even when they aren't pregnant and this can result in bones that easily fracture and later bone loss and/or Osteoporosis. ## im taking also mosvit vitamins for almost 6 months and it has a positive e...
