I am constantly looking for natural sleep aids and honestly changing it up between them so my body doesn't get used to one kind. I was quite happy when contacted by a company called Glysonna and of course willing to give it a review! "Glysonna SleepceuticalTM is a drug-free sleep aid, glycine fortified with added wellness nutrients which helps you to reach restorative sleep."
The first and favorite quality I learned about Glysonna is that you don't have to take this an hour or 30 minutes prior to laying in bed. You take 1 oz directly at bedtime. There is nothing I hate more than having to remember to take something and then waiting for it to work. I can honestly tell you, I felt it "work" almost within minutes.
"Glysonna contains eight active ingredients – Glycine, L-Theanine, JuJube Extract, Phenibut, Hops Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Cinnamon Extract and Melatonin – and seven wellness ingredients – Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Selenium, Niacin and Magnesium." I have to say, this tasted amazing! It had a combination of a warm chai tea or hot cider - very relaxing and soothing flavor! Even better Glysonna contains no sugar, carbs, or gluten! There is also no antihistamines, alcohol, tryptophan and 5HTP.
"Glysonna has successfully granted a good night’s rest to patients of long-term disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia and PTSD in addition to individuals who just occasionally have a rough time initiating and sustaining sleep." Unfortunately I have to say one of these things I noticed while taking this is a very odd feeling while falling asleep almost as if I was in a drunk state. I felt like my crazy thoughts were a bit enhanced which in my opinion might not be good for individuals taking this when not in bed, ready for sleep.
I was surprised though, when I awoke in the morning feeling refreshed and had actually slept for a solid eight hours. I wasn't "knocked out" and yet I still don't remember struggling to fall asleep. I also remembered that I actually had dreams even though I don’t recall what they were about. I don't feel groggy when waking up after taking this like I have with other products and for instance I feel refreshed enough to be writing away today!
Cost/Available to Purchase: $19.95 sale (reg $24.95) Glysonna Single 8 oz Bottle
Recommendation: I highly recommend this problem if you are having mild problems sleeping. I do not think this is a cure for insomnia (as this is something that only happens to me when I am extremely stressed). It works to help when I can not turn my brain off and is honestly a more natural way which I feel more comfortable using. I think this is great tasting and most importantly it works effectively.
Giveaway: Glysonna is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers an 8oz bottle of Glysonna to try of their own!
