Neurosleep; Does It Work?

The Neuro drink line is becoming more popular, and this is my take on their sleep aid drink.

My daughter is a high strung 18 year old, who has always had trouble falling asleep, at least at the time that she needs to.  We were planning a trip to a college scholarship even a few months ago, and both of us knew that she would probably have a horrible time falling asleep the night before.  So, we stopped at a QT, grabbed an orange bottle of Neurosleep, and hoped for the best.

I am thrilled to say that it worked wonderfully.  She drank the entire bottle around a half hour before going to bed, and even with the nerves of the next morning’s events working against her, she was able to fall asleep almost instantly and to stay asleep all night!  She was not groggy the next day, either, which was very important.

What’s in Neurosleep, you may wonder? You may find out at this link:

You may have noticed that the amount of melatonin in this is approximately equivalent to 3 melatonin tablets (see label for exact amounts).  This also contains a significant amount of magnesium.  Whatever it is, it works!

According to the Neurosleep web site, “NeuroSleep supports restful sleep.† 

Dietary ingredients provided in NeuroSleep: 

• Melatonin – An ingredient universally found in plants and foods, including corn, rice, wheat, barley, oats, wine and beer. (1) Melatonin is also naturally produced in the body to help regulate the sleep cycle.† 

• L-theanine – An amino acid found in tea leaves. Emerging research demonstrates L-theanine can shift oscillatory brain waves to the alpha spectrum (8-13 Hz), the spectrum in which relaxation occurs.† 

• Magnesium – An electrolyte and essential mineral that supports both sleep and neuroendocrine function.† 

• 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) – Derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, 5-HTP is an important intermediary in the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.† 

• Taurine – An amino acid commonly found in foods such as turkey (dark meat), chicken and shellfish.(2) Taurine is important for neurotransmission.”

We have tried Dream Water, another over-the-counter sleep remedy, but it did not work quite as well.  Unfortunately,  neither option is very cost effective.  Neurosleep is around $2.50 per bottle, and in my area, isn’t readily available in most places, other than Quik Trip.  In a pinch, though, on a night when sleep is crucial to well being and good mental function the next day, it is so worth it!
