These soft gels do seem to have a stronger kick to them. I take one before bed time and they knock me out.
This is way more convenient than the dropper for me. Now I just add it to my pill case for one a day and take it along with my vitamins.
These softgels seem to kick in faster than the oil. I had been taking 1.5 droppers of the 1000mg which should be about 25mg, but these 25mg softgels seem to be more powerful. And they are easier to take!
