I am not quite that lucky. When I try and fall asleep, no matter how tired I might feel, it takes hours. I toss and I turn, and usually end up catching reruns of Cheers and Frasier at around 3:00 AM. (Yep. These shows are still on TV, they're just aired when no one is awake to watch them....except for yours truly.)
I have only tried sleep aids once, and that was when I was 9 months pregnant with Sophie and absolutely miserable. I hadn't slept in 9 days, and was completely cranky and delirious. My family says I turned into the "Preggo-Demon-Monster." My doctor took pity on me, and I was prescribed a low dose of Ambien. It was an awful experience. I started sleep walking, and even tried to leave the house without pants on. (True story.) My husband literally had to babysit me when I took it to make sure I didn't wander out of the house!
So when I learned about Glysonna, an all-natural "sleepceutical" that is safe, gentle, and non-habit forming, I was eager to give it a shot. I truly believe that nature provides all we really need, so I am inclined to trust these products more than I do prescriptions that are full of ingredients I don't understand and undesirable side-effects.
a) Triggering relaxation.
b) Sustaining sleep.
c) Initiating the natural sleep process.
Glysonna's proprietary sleep blend includes the following active ingredients that are sure to help you fall asleep and stay asleep: Glycine, L-Theanine, Jujube Extract, Phenibut, Hops Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Cinnamon Extract, and Melatonin.
This Gluten-Free formula is also fortified with a unique formulation of wellness nutrients like Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Inositol, Magnesium, Zinc, and Selenium. If you pay attention to nutrition like I do, you are probably well-aware of how beneficial these nutrients are.
Also, rather than making you feel "drunk" or "woozy", Glysonna helps you feel relaxed, like you want to go lay down. It's a very subtle effect, but definitely works. I have been taking Glysonna every night for a couple of weeks now, and I have found that I am falling asleep much more quickly, and I am not waking up 5 billion times a night. (Hallelujah!)
Glysonna also allows you to achieve a deeper sleep than traditional sleep aids. Many sleep aids knock you out, but you don't experience true REM sleep. This often means waking up feeling groggy and generally out of sorts. Glysonna gently eases you into a deep sleep, and even sustains this sleep, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and well-rested.
Oh, and I should also mention, this stuff tastes good, too. Normally supplements have a somewhat funky taste to them. Glysonna has a pleasant, herbal, almost fruity taste that's not at all overwhelming.
I still can't fall asleep at the drop of a hat like my husband can. I doubt that will ever be the case for me. But since I've started using Glysonna, I can say with absolute certainty that the quality of my sleep, and my life in general, has definitely improved. I feel much more rested and wake up in the morning feeling alert and ready to start my day. I have also found that by mid-afternoon, I am not groggy and irritable anymore. (I guess that's because I am finally enjoying a proper night's rest!)
If you have trouble sleeping like I do, I would definitely recommend giving Glysonna a try. It's safe, gentle, and very effective. Just 2 tablespoons every night before bed, and you're sure to be lulled into a deep, refreshing sleep. Of course you'll want to consult your physician before taking any supplements to make sure the ingredients won't interfere with any existing conditions or medications you might be taking. Overall, I think this is a great product, and definitely give it 2 thumbs up.
