A sleep combo of omega 3, soy lecithin (two forms) and a swallow of honey

At bedtime I take a combo of 4 items that I am pretty happy with for sleep. The first item is large softgel of Spring Valley 1000 mg omega 3 fish oil concentrate, sold on the shelf next to Walmart pharmacies. The brain has a sizable percentage of DHA.

DHA makes up over 90% of the n-3 PUFAs in the brain and 10%–20% of its total lipids. DHA is especially concentrated in the gray matter. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Spring-Valley-Omega-3-Fish-Oil-Soft-Gels-1000-mg-180-Count/413918797?from=searchResults

Also, I take a 1200 mg softgel of liquid soy lecithin and one half rounded iced teaspoon of soy lecithin powder. The phosphatidyl choline in lecithin is a nervous system relaxant. Approximately 1/3 of your brain is made from lecithin! When you include lecithin in your diet, you are nourishing your brain and helping to support your nervous system. https://www.pipingrock.com/lecithin/lecithin-non-gmo-1200-mg-240-quick-release-softgels-823 https://bulkfoods.com/lecithin/lecithin-powder.html

Also I take a swallow of honey. Honey has been used for centuries for the treatment of insomnia because it has hypnotic action. Additionally, traditional Ayurvedic experts recommend honey for skin disorders (such as wounds and burns), cardiac pain and palpitation, all imbalances of the lungs and anemia.

Usually I look for a 5 lb jug of honey, a quantity that lasts for a while: https://www.walmart.com/search?q=pure n simple honey 80 oz&typeahead=pure n simple https://www.frysfood.com/p/crockett-s-desert-gold-honey-jug/0007292100012?fulfillment=PICKUP&searchType=default_search
