It’s no secret that I suffer from insomnia. I’ve suffered for years and in comes in peaks and troughs.
Currently it’s hit a peak, I attribute this to the current Covid pandemic, uncertainty for my business and keeping my family safe. Talking to a lot of my friends there’s a lot of us feeling the same. And dreams… is it just me but dreams are really vivid at the moment? I suspect another side- effect of the current situation.
Long story short the lovely people over at Unbeelievable Health contacted me and asked if I wanted to try their sleep support capsules. Now I’ve tried meditation ( I’m just not there yet), hypnotherapy ( I laughed as it didn’t work) and I’ve upped my exercise so I thought “ Why not” and decided to give them a go.
On their website Unbeelievable describe these supplements as : “Bee rested sleep support blends 9 effective ingredients which have a soothing effect, helping to decrease tension and to promote good sleep including Griffonia seed extract (5-HTP), Chamomile extract, bee propolis, royal jelly, lavender, hops extract, Montmorency cherry, saffron and more.”
They are suitable for vegetarians and are gluten, nut and soy free. Incidentally I’d had a call from my GP ( about something else) I’d mentioned them to try for insomnia and the gp agreed. As with all supplements if you are unsure then do check suitability with a health professional first.
Anyway they are easy to take capsules that are coated and I found do not leave a funny aftertaste ( always a bonus). I started to take them 1 hour before I wanted to go to sleep. The first night I didn’t notice much- still lots of over thinking for me, but by night 3 I admit I got 5 hours. That might sound like a dismal night for most but usually 3-4 is average for me.
After a week I was getting 6+ hours. Now this could be coincidence, but I do think they are definitely helping. I’ve noticed my skin incidentally has improved as well ( no break outs ) which I think is an added bonus. Anyway I’m that impressed I’ve purchased some more and will continue on them for the time being.
You can purchase these from Boots, Holland and Barrett , Amazon and Planet Organic amongst other places.
