Forty Winks: Sleep Strips

Forty Winks: Sleep StripsI never thought I'd have a problem falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night (I love sleeping!), but the older I get, the less restful my nights have become. I personally can't stand the thought of taking sleeping pills and when I tried a couple of different ones, each time I felt groggy and sluggish the next day. Until now! I tried the all-natural sleep aid Forty Winks, and I absolutely love it.

What Is It?
Unlike most sleep aids which put you to sleep in a forced way and can become addicting, Forty Winks is all-natural. Instead of waking up the next morning feeling groggy and weak (or with that "dulled senses" feeling), the active ingredients in Forty Winks help you fall asleep easy without dangerous side effect. Not getting enough sleep can cause depression, decreased concentration and alertness, daytime sleepiness, diminished sexual desire, and a poorly functioning immune system; chronic sleep loss can increase the severity of age-related conditions including memory loss, blood sugar imbalances, increased blood pressure, and even weight gain.

What Do They Say it Does?
They told me not to use Forty Winks until 15-30 minutes before bedtime. Why? Because the formula is so powerful it will put you to sleep fast – real fast! Sure enough, I fall asleep within 30 minutes each time. Plus, it’s guaranteed to help you experience sharper thinking and memory, stronger immune function, more energy and zest for life, clear focus and concentration, and increased strength and stamina. Guaranteed in the sense that they offer a money back guarantee!

Main Ingredients:
  • Melatonin – A natural hormone made by your body’s pineal gland. Helps restore your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle. Also, used as an effective remedy to treat jet-lag.
  • Nettle Root – Laboratory studies show nettle root may help relax blood vessels and stabilize the force of your heartbeat. Both of these effects may support healthy blood pressure. This powerful extract is used to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
  • L-Theanine – Helps you fall asleep easily... quiets your busy mind so you stay asleep.... and lets you reclaim the deep, restful slumber of your youth.
Other Ingredients:
  • Passiflora – Extracts from the passion flower plant [Passiflora incarnata L.] are widely used as components of herbal sedatives. Passion flower extracts have been used in combination with other natural anti-anxiety herbs to relieve tension... restlessness... irritability with difficulty in falling asleep.
  • Valerian Extract – Numerous human sleep studies have demonstrated that this natural sedative produces a significant improvement in sleep quality... and an increase in deep REM sleep without dangerous side-effects!

What We Like
You only have to put one strip under your tongue to get the high-potency ingredients. It tastes great! Kind of like a vanilla milkshake. It's easy to digest since it's not a pill and the packaging is small and convenient. They offer a money back guarantee: If you're not satisfied, simply return the unused portion for a 100% refund of the price you paid.

What We Don’t Like
I like the unique packaging but when I put it in my toiletries case to travel, some water got inside it and made the strips stick together.

As always, check with your doctor before starting any new supplements because there are several options out there. For example, there's LipoRidPM, SleepSoGood, and Sedamine just to name a few. Overall we think Forty Winks is a fantastic sleep aid, and we give it a 5 star rating.
