We know lack of sleep contributes to all kinds of problems: weight gain, inflammatory diseases, inattention while driving, just plain crankiness.
Now, Dream Products has created a natural sleep aid meant to help people who have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep: Dream Water. It's a zero-calorie, 2.5-ounce shot of drug-free sleep aid.
The company promotes it as a natural treatment. The main ingredients include GABA (gamma-amino buteric acid), an amino acid that helps you relax; melatonin, a hormone that helps induce sleep; and 5-HTP, an amino acid to improve sleep quality, meaning it helps you stay asleep.
The amino acid 5-HTP is similar to what is in turkey, to which people attribute sleep-inducing characteristics.
I tried one about 30 minutes before going to bed, as directed, and it works. I have trouble going back to sleep if I wake up, and Dream Water did the trick.
I went right to sleep, woke up fewer times and went right to sleep again when I did wake up. And, most importantly, I woke up refreshed, as they say.
Dream Water flavors have clever names like Snoozeberry, which is pomegranate and blueberry; NighTea Night, citrus flavors; and Paradise PM, tropical flavors.
Shots come in a four-pack for about $14, a 12-pack and a 24-pack, and are available at most drug stores and online. The website is promoting a free Snoozeberry sample now. Find out more at www.drinkdreamwater.com.
