Did you know that irregular sleep patterns are being called the new silent killer, being as detrimental to health as stress and poor diet? Studies show that those who chronically get less sleep than the “golden” 7-8 hours are at a higher risk for a number of diseases, are prone to weight gain, and are less able to deal with the effects of stress. People suffering from insomnia spend less time in deeper levels of sleep, wake up more often, and experience a reduction in REM sleep. In addition to stress, insomnia can be caused by a variety of other factors, including anxiety, poor diet, or a disruption of the body’s internal clock – such as jet lag, all-night study sessions, or changing work hours.

The product helped me fall asleep, but did not keep me asleep. I don't know if the sample was large enough to fully be able to tell its effectiveness.
Made me sleep, an I stay a sleep. I felt rested in the morning., I didn't feel drowsy when I woke up. I took it an out hour before needing to sleep. It was.a slow process to work. So I will take it a bit early. Easy on your system I ate with it just to make sure I didnt get a upset stomach. But maybe that's the reason it took a little longer to work. But either way or works. And it's a good means to a easy sleep
I brought this on my recent trip to Cancun. When I first opened the packet, the pill smelled like cow manure. Was very skeptical but I gave it a try. I tried it for 3 nights straight and woke up in the middle of the night with a dry mouth. On the nights following where I hadn't taken it, I slept till the morning. Not sure why it is.
this product did not work for me at all it did not help me fall asleep it did not help me stay asleep i tried when i was really really tired and also tried when i was not so tired i will not be buying or taking again and i will not be recomending to my friends or family
This sleep aid worked very well. I took it about 30 minutes before bed time. They worked fast and helped me sleep all night. I prefer these sleep aids over the over the counter sleep aids. These don't keep you feeling groggy the next day.
