Getting a Good Night’s Sleep #FoodforSleep

Food for Sleep LogoIf Bo (Jackson) knows football. There’s no doubt that I know sleep. Sleep and I go waaaaayyyy back. In fact, I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I have had insomnia…and I would still have fingers left. I put my head on the pillow and within seconds I am asleep. Zzzz. But my question is…is the sleep I get enough? Is it restful sleep? You see I feel so sluggish all the time. Sure, I sleep like a top, but am I getting a good night’s sleep?

I never get enough sleep. I go to bed too late and get up too early. I have one child who is still a morning person. My other two children are teens. One of my teens would sleep the day away…and does. She’s inherited my night owl tendencies. The other is up early for school and swim practice but will snooze away if she has no where to go. No one in my family is a morning person, so once each of my children hit the tween years I was able to sleep a bit later on weekends and days off school. The extra sleep was nice, but not enough. Can you ever really catch up on sleep?

So I’ve been in this “never getting enough sleep” and feeling sluggish pattern for a very long time. I was offered a chance to try a new product designed to help people fall asleep safely and soundly. After a long time of feeling sluggish during the day, I was beginning to wonder how restful my sleep actually was. It’s very tiring to wake up tired…spend the day feeling tired…then go to bed…only to feel the same way the next day.

Work, dinner prep, homework supervision, cleaning, laundry...phew...I'm beat!

Food for Sleep is a drink designed to help you sleep at night. As I said, going to sleep is never a problem for me, but I was curious to see how well I would sleep after drinking Food for Sleep. I was sent a box of 6 bottles of Food for Sleep. Each 2.5 ounce bottle is bright green with a blue top.  Food for Sleep drinks are made from all natural ingredients. No chemicals, which was important to me.

Food for Sleep is made from tart cherry juice, special whey protein that is rich in tryptophan, and natural flavors. I’ll be honest that the first sip was bitter. It was my first night taking Food for Sleep so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I took another sip and it was still very tart tasting. I chugged the rest of the 2.5 ounce bottle. I skipped the next night as I forgot to take it, but took it the following night. This time I tasted a fruity taste. Still tart, but I definitely detected a hint of cherry, with a little cranberry. I didn’t gulp it all at once this time, instead I sipped. I actually enjoyed the taste. I definitely did not taste any chemicals or anything “manufactured.” I liked that Food for Sleep is “based on real science” but does not taste of chemicals.

The proof is in the pudding as they say. I woke up more refreshed. Not quite as sluggish. I had the makings of a spring in my step. As the day wore on I was less groggy. More clear headed. less apt to be drowsy. I would definitely recommend this product. I’m not your typical “insomniac” as I go to sleep without any issue, but I am definitely not getting a thoroughly good night’s sleep. I don’t sleep enough hours each night on a consistent basis. Food for Sleep helped me “maximize” the hours of sleep I get in to restful and productive sleep.
