Deep­ens sleep + quells heart­burn

First For Women - - Health -

It’s known best as a sleep aid—tak­ing 3 mg of quick­dis­solv­ing melatonin at bed­time cuts the risk of rest­less sleep in half, say Cor­nell Univer­sity sci­en­tists. But Egyp­tian re­searchers note that melatonin has an­other plus: It strength­ens the valve that stops stom­ach acid from wash­ing up into the esoph­a­gus, nix­ing heart­burn flare­ups for 83 per­cent of women in 2 months. To try: Twin­lab Melatonin Dots ($7 for 60 tablets; Ama­zon.com).
