(Last Used: 2/14/21) Young Woman Sleeping Peacefully On Bed

I simply couldn’t relate to people who needed a sleep aid for most of my life. As soon as my head hit the pillow, I would fall asleep almost instantly. Every night I slept for exactly eight hours (if not a little longer). My sleep routine was the most consistent thing about me. But about three months ago, everything changed.

For the first time in my life, I struggled to fall asleep. My tossing and turning transformed into clock-watching, which made it harder to fall asleep. When I finally dozed off, I rarely made it more than six hours before jutting awake.

Not only was I missing the 7 to 9 hours of sleep suggested for my age demographic, but the quality of said sleep was awful. I was waking up exhausted, and I saw firsthand how poor sleep could impact your health. Staying focused was a concentrated effort, and I lacked energy for everyday tasks, including my morning walks. 

I needed a solution (and adding new blackout curtains to my space simply wasn’t cutting it). So I finally decided to crack open the bottle of sleep support+ stashed away in my medicine cabinet for guest. I’d read countless reviews of the non-hormonal sleep aid from other customers who swore by the formula to improve sleep quality—including one from my own coworker who saw her REM score improve by 400% after introducing sleep aid.*

The first night I took sleep support+, I slept eight hours for the first time in months.

My experience with sleep support+

That first fateful night, I took two capsules of sleep support+ about an hour before bedtime. When I later snuggled into bed to read before lights out, I felt at ease and relaxed. As I flipped pages, I could feel myself dozing off. So I abandoned my book at least 20 minutes before my normal bedtime—and I fell asleep within minutes of cuddling under the covers.*

The next morning I woke up after eight blissful hours of sleep. For the first time in months, I felt well-rested.* There was no grogginess, like I might have expected with other sleep aids, so I felt clear-minded going into my day.

After three weeks of regular use, my bottle is nearly empty, and I feel like I’m getting the best sleep that I’ve had in years. But you don’t have to take it from me—these ingredients have scientific backup, too.

What’s in sleep support+

Magnesium bisglycinate is the key ingredient in sleep support+. This allstar promotes a steady state of relaxation for deep sleep—and bisglycinate is one of the most absorbable forms.* 

It’s then paired with jujube seed extract (which helps ease stress) and PharmaGABA® (a neurotransmitter shown in clinical trials to enhance natural sleep quality). This combo can increase deep sleep, total sleep time, and sleep efficiency within 4 weeks.*†

I love that I’m taking a GMO-free supplement without any added preservatives or fillers. Plus, I don’t have to worry about waking up drowsy or the potential long-term impact of introducing melatonin into my body with sleep support+.

The takeaway

When my sleep quality took a turn for the worse, sleep support+ helped me fall asleep faster—and stay there.* I’ve not only stopped watching the clock, but I’m finally sleeping more than six hours again. Let’s just say, I’ll be setting up a subscription as soon as this bottle runs out.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medications, consult with your doctor before starting a supplement routine. It is always optimal to consult with a health care provider when considering what supplements are right for you.† Benefits assume daily use and are evidence-based estimates rooted in clinical science at the ingredient level. Individual results may vary.
