      Hi Yvette You may find the Dormeasan helpful, this is specifically for helping with sleep and usually works quite quickly.

      HI Louise 42 is still a little young to be starting the menopause (although it can happen in some cases) so this could be caused by a variety of factors. If this continues I would see your doctor but check your diet too, high carb foods and lack of plain water can very easily cause painful bloating! Fatigue, again can be caused by a number of factors, your doctor can test you for low iron and low thyroid function just to rule these out.

    I am having terrible trouble with my digestive tract since New Year. I hope by taking a supplement that things will improve and I can get on with life. I'm frustrated as I eat healthily and exercise but still feel fat and frumpy and fed up too
