I'm one of those people who has a difficult time falling asleep (especially after a stressful day), but these pills knock me out 30-60 minutes after taking them. I take one magnesium capsule at night along with one Garden of Life mykind Organics Plant Calcium, 180 Organic Tablet since I'm sensitive to dairy and don't usually get the RDA through my regular diet.
The capsules are a good size: not too large, but not tiny either. I personally find them easy to swallow. The container is...
