Review of Glysonna Drug-Free Sleep Aid3:02 PM
Having a hard time sleeping at night?
I've had "night terrors", night wakings, and sleep walking issues ever since I was a child. While these have mostly tapered off since I've had kids, I do occasionally wake up at the same time every night and disrupt my normal sleep pattern. (I know this, because my husband tells me I wake up yelling. Other times, I'm not so vocal, but my FitBit One tells me that this is when I have my longest "awake time" during the night.)
Maybe you are just not getting to sleep soon enough? Insomnia is as inconvenient as night waking, and one of the things I've been hearing others talk about using to help is glycine. Glycine is an amino acid that you can buy over the counter. I was really wanting to give this a shot, but wasn't sure how much to take, what to take it with, etc.
The makers of Glysonna almost read my mind in putting together a drug-free "cocktail" of sorts that mixes glycine and other nutrients into one easy-to-swallow liquid (that tastes a bit like apples!) In fact, all of the ingredients are currently on the FDA "safe list". Sleep helpers included in the solution include Glycine, L-Theanine, JuJube Extract, Phenibut, Hops Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Cinnamon Extract and Melatonin. It also includes seven wellness ingredients – Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Selenium, Niacin and Magnesium.
The purpose of Glysonna is to help you get back to restorative sleep by:
a) Triggering relaxation.
b) Sustaining sleep. and
c) Initiating the natural sleep process.
It's not recommended for use in children under age 14, or nursing moms and pregnant women. We have had a few trials of the product with the adults at our house, and here is what we have found.
In those who "sleep wake or walk", they may still get up after taking the Glysonna, but they are more calm and go back to bed easier and fall asleep longer. Since we have started using Glysonna in our home, the "night wakers" report feeling more rested. I don't know that the product will get rid of night waking entirely, but it does seem to have a positive effect on the overall sleep pattern and has given us more "restful" nights.
I am encouraged enough by this product, that I have ordered a 4-pack for the family since trying it. Any little bit of sleep we can get really helps keep us on track!
This product is currently available for purchase online for $19.95. You can also follow Glysonna on Facebook and Twitter!
