I don't really spend my time/effort on reviews. I don't really care. Good or bad. However for this one I have decided that I'd do it.
I've tried numerous sleep products and supplements over the last few years, and none have really made a difference. Super stacking one product with another, multiple serves etc.
This is the first off-the-shelf product that I can actually say has made a difference.
Consuming with 150 ml of water, 30-60 minutes before bed, usually sees lights out soon after. (Be careful with drinking too much liquid before bed though)
Ingredients certainly help with relaxing the body, and maybe even relaxing the mind, however I think just knowing that I'll get a decent sleep because of this has made a difference in itself. Tossing and turning, stressing about trying to get to sleep...all of that, just, gone.
