Link between insomnia and perinatal depressive symptoms: A meta-analysis. - PubMed - NCBI
e found a significant, medium-size relationship between insomnia and perinatal depressive symptoms (point estimate, 0.366; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.205-0.508; p < 0.001; n = 9)

Effects of exogenous melatonin on sleep: a meta-analysis. - PubMed - NCBI
Melatonin treatment significantly reduced sleep onset latency by 4.0 min (95% CI 2.5, 5.4); increased sleep efficiency by 2.2% (95% CI 0.2, 4.2), and increased total sleep duration by 12.8 min (95% CI 2.9, 22.8). Since 15 of the 17 studies enrolled healthy subjects or people with no relevant medical condition other than insomnia, the analysis was also done including only these 15 studies. The sleep onset results were changed to 3.9 min (95% CI (2.5, 5.4)); sleep efficiency increased to 3.1% (95% CI (0.7, 5.5)); sleep duration increased to 13.7 min (95% CI (3.1, 24.3)).

Evidence for the efficacy of melatonin in the treatment of primary adult sleep disorders. - PubMed - NCBI
Results from the meta-analyses showed the most convincing evidence for exogenous melatonin use was in reducing sleep onset latency in primary insomnia (p = 0.002), delayed sleep phase syndrome (p < 0.0001), and regulating the sleep-wake patterns in blind patients compared with placebo. These findings highlight the potential importan

Insomnia and risk of cardiovascular disease: a meta-analysis. - PubMed - NCBI
These studies included 122,501 subjects followed for a time ranging from three to 20 years. A total of 6332 cardiovascular events occurred during the follow-up. Insomnia was assessed through questionnaire and defined as either difficulty of initiating or maintaining sleep or presence of restless, disturbed nights. The cumulative analysis for all the studies under a random-effects model showed that insomnia determined an increased risk (+45%) of developing or dying from cardiovascular disease during the follow-up (relative risk 1.45, 95% confidence interval 1.29-1.62; p < 0.00001), with no evidence of heterogeneity across the studies (I 2: 19%; p = 0.14).

Sleep quality during pregnancy: A meta-analysis. - PubMed - NCBI
Results indicated that the average PSQI score during pregnancy was 6.07, 95% confidence interval (CI) [5.30, 6.85], and 45.7%, 95% CI [36.5%, 55.2%], of pregnant women experienced poor sleep quality. Longitudinal studies indicated that sleep quality decreased from second (M = 5.31, SE = 0.40) to third trimester (M = 7.03, SE = 0.85) by 1.68 points, 95% CI [0.42, 2.94]. Gestational age moderated the average PSQI scores and prevalence of PSQI scores ≥5; older samples reported higher mean PSQI scores and higher prevalence of poor sleep quality. Clinicians should be aware that some reduction in sleep quality is expected during pregnancy, but complaints of very poor sleep quality could require intervention.

SEVERE sleep anxiety and insomnia for ~2 weeks, now finally sleeping daily -- what worked for me. : insomnia
In any case, my supplement stack is as follows:
With my breakfast...
'Power by Naturals' ADK (5,000 IU Vitamin A, 5'000 IU Vitamin D3, 500mcg Vitamin K2 as MK7)
'Nature Made' Stress B vitamin complex
150-300 mg magnesium via 'Natural Calm'
Tbsp of cod liver oil
Mid day...
Protein shake w/ turmeric, almond butter, MCT oil, black pepper, banana, avocado.
At night...
Dinner with 150-300mg of magnesium + Himalayan Pink Salt water
Throughout the day...
Adding Himalayan Pink Salt, Redmond's Real Salt, and Trader Joe's Sea Salt to my water and food -- perhaps a total of 5-7 grams daily (salt is important for bodybuilders).
I also added all of the best mag-rich foods to my diet. It took some time to kick in, but for the past few days my mood has been stable, been waking up with vitality and a sense of purpose that I honestly haven't experienced in over a month. Before that, I had constant low grade anxiety (not quite crippling), just the annoying "on edge" feeling and propensity towards fear-based thinking. Currently my brain can still slip into a near-anxious mode, then I quickly remember "wait...WHY?". After realizing there's literally NOTHING to fear, it dissipates and I go on with my day.
One of the most important things for me was realizing that panic attacks CANNOT progress fully unless you allow them to by feeding the fear and worry. When your resolve strengthens, you realize it's entirely within your control, and as such, tell yourself it will NEVER happen again. That helped me get rid of the generalized anxiety (fear of panic attacks). If the symptoms kick in (heart rate, lump in throat, shortness of breath, etc.) I just remember that panic attack symptoms are uncomfortable, but harmless, so I just sit there, remind myself that my body is being stupid, and dismiss it by simply waiting it out calmly. Don't feed into the panic that it induces.
