  1. Great Sleeping Aid 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2015

    I frequently get up around 3-4 AM and cannot go back to sleep because my mind is racing. It usually takes me a good hour or two to get back to sleep, but by then it's time to get up. Tried a pump of this last night under the tongue and it worked like magic. Fell back asleep right away. I must say it tastes pretty nasty, but it was worth it. It's like taking a shot of some herbal 100 proof alcohol in the middle of the night. The alarm woke me up this morning and I feel rested. I will probably order more.
