Wow-eeeee! This Stuff Works!!! + Fantastic Quality of Sleep!!!
Posted on May 19, 2013
I bought this in hopes that it would safely & naturally help my mother get to sleep and stay asleep throughout the night. She has very advanced dementia and is prone to wandering aimlessly around the house all through the night, moving things around. That means no sleep for me because she needs constant supervision, so if she's awake all night, I'm awake all night. Prescription sedatives pose significant risks to the elderly, and for people with dementia, can actually wire them up plus cause agitation instead of sedating - and that's what they do to my mom. Wasn't sure if something natural (not to mention yummy tasting) would possibly be strong enough to make her sleep through the night instead of roaming around, but gave it a try. WOW! Hallelujah! Amazing stuff! LOVE IT! Are you getting the picture??? Within a half hour of taking just one of these, my mom drifts off into a very peaceful, restful sleep - and STAYS asleep for at least 8 hours. If she awakens, she is able to get back to sleep immediately. You have no idea what a miracle this product is to us. I'm so grateful for this product because not only is it making her sleep, but its given me MY sleep back - and I NEED some rest, BADLY! Also, these are chewable and she LOVES the taste which is huge and makes my life much easier. I previously tried another natural sleep aid from iHerb; they worker but were BIG pills which she can not swallow - and if you try to open the casules, the smell and taste is powerful and actually burns the mouth, so she spat that out and refused to take. So frustrating. But not only do these completely eliminate that problem by being chewable, they are in fact so tasty that she loves them and happily gobbles them up. I always test things like this on myself before I give to her because any unexpected effects can cause havoc in someone with dementia, so I tried these myself and a) they are VERY YUMMY!!!! b) they are super-effective for me as well. Normally I need a glass (or two) of wine at bedtime to calm down and knock me out due to the non-stop stress I live with daily. Now I skip the wine, these do the trick. And once asleep, the sleep quality I get is soooooooo gooooood! Deep, and restful, and well, like the name says, "Tranquil". To make things even better - I wake up feeling totally refreshed, no fuzzy head, no 'hangover'. Awesome stuff. I tried taking L Tryptophan a few days before I tried this, and did not get a restful sleep. Yes, the Tryptophan knocked me out, and I felt like I was in a deep sleep, yet it didn't feel restful. I woke up repeatedly through the night, tossed and turned a lot. In other words, it made me heavily sedated, but not did not provide "rest". Worse yet, with the tryptophan, my head was all fogged up the next day, and to a lesser degree for 2 additional days after, and I felt really out of sorts. (This would have meant big trouble if I'd given it to my mom without testing on myswelf first, as it probably would have caused her to have severe agitation for those few days). Tryptophan definitely left me with a 'hangover', whereas this stuff is just perfect in every way. Very grateful to have found this, and grateful to iHerb for making it so easy to source out and research products, plus the great pricing, & very reasonable shipping time and cost. I'd give this product TEN stars if I could.
