Sure matches ALL my experimental data.  Coffee with pure H2O is the only 
kind I can drink cup of, then go to sleep within minutes every night, 
for many many years now.  Any other water, including that brand of 
distilled that says "made by steam distillation and ozonation", then it 
can take hours to sleep, for me.

Guess I need to google "co-extraction".
