I have been dealing with anxiety for more than a year now and I have noticed that for some reason, it gets worse just when I am about to sleep. Sometimes it keeps me awake for more than an hour or two and there have been some days where I was barely able to get any sleep. I think this had an impact on my productivity during weekdays as I often end up feeling more tired due to lack of sleep.
While Ashwagandha and B Complex have helped me control my stress, they still take some time work so I decided to try Super Sleep tablets that I saw in Costco. As per the manufacturer, the tablets can help promote temporary relaxation, help increase sleep time, help reduce the effect of jetlag, as well reduce the time it takes to go to sleep.
Here are the three main ingredients of the tablets as per the label –
- L-Theanine – 100 mg
- L-5-Hydroxytryptophan – 15mg
- Melatonin – 1.5 mg
While the recommended dose is two tablets before sleeping, I only tried to have one or sometimes even half of the tablet depending on my situation, and found that it was quite effective in putting me to sleep early. Most of the time, I went to sleep within minutes of going to bed. I have also noticed that whenever I have taken the tablet, I have a much more deep fulfilling sleep and feel great waking up!
The tablets are chewable and have a nice sweet flavor and it does not feel like you are taking medicine. Also, so far using the tablets I have not had any kind of harmful side effects. The supplements do mention not to take it with alcohol or if you are planning to drive.
If you are having issues with your sleep, it’s definitely worth adding this dietary supplement to your nightly routine and see if it works for you!
Update: I had a mild headache and increased heart rate after using Super Sleep recently. So I have decided to discontinue its use. Make sure to check if this supplement interacts with any of the products that you are already using. Also it might good to try with a small amount instead of going with the full dose.
