I’m a night owl. Some nights are worst than others. I’ve taken all kinds of sleep aid, everything honestly and some things would work for a few months, then my body would just get used to them and they stop working all together. So when I heard about Berry Sleepy, I thought to myself, “maybe these might just work..” Well I took it for 3 nights. It says to take 2 pills 30 minutes before you plan on going to bed, so I did, normally with everything I take sleep aid wise, it takes about an hour to kick in. With Berry Sleepy, I never got sleepy, actually it did the opposite, I was kept wide awake. Blah, so I contact the customer service and I was told to try 1 pill instead of one pill and it should work. Well I tried that for 3 nights.. still nothing. So I don’t need any help staying awake, that I got covered, haha. I go to bed around 2am to 4am, depending on what I got going on blog wise. Then I wake up at 6am and start my day, yea, that’s no sleep.. I know, trust me I know.. I’m one sleepy mom.. between 4 kids, my blog and my website business. I just gave up on sleep for everything else. I seem to manage to work on less sleep, when I do get to sleep, a full night of sleep is about 6 hours.
Research studies show that tart cherries, goji berries and passion fruit contain vitamins, minerals and naturally-occurring compounds that reduce insomnia and regulate sleep cycles. Passion Fruit contains serotonin, a mild, delicate sedative perfect for restful sleep. Promotes feeling of calm, relaxes the mind and body and supports and regulates sleep. Gogi Berry has a blend of magnesium and thiamine ideal for high quality sleep. Reduces time it takes to fall asleep, promotes beneficial sleep and increases energy the next day. Tart cherries contain optimal levels of natural melatonin for gentle sleep. Improves sleep duration and quality, helps manage disrupted sleep and improves sleep patterns.
Let superfruits put you to sleep! You can purchase a bottle for $39.95. A bit on the pricey side. These didn’t work for me, but I have a more of an issue with insomnia than a normal person, so these may actually work for someone, they just didn’t work for me. But might I add, they have great customer service!
How many hours of sleep do you get at night on average?
Disclosure: The Berry Sleepy brand has supplied me with a bottle of Berry Sleepy in exchange for a honest review. They also provided one bottle for the winner of the giveaway.
I typically sleep around 6 hours every night. More on a good day and less than 4 on a bad day.
I would love to try this. I am having hard time sleeping these days so this comes in hand
I really need to give this a try. On nights when I have to be up late on the computer, I’m so wired when I’m finally able to hit the sack that I can’t go to sleep. =(
YES! As a matter of fact I am berry sleepy! This made me giggle out loud.
My DH has a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. I wonder if this would work on him. I have heard good things about Gogi berries and their effect on sleeping.
I did not know about goji berries!! I eat them all the time…but never in the evening before bed!! I think I might go eat a handful now 😉
Now that’s what I need. I always drink a sleep aid before going to bed because it is hard for me to fall asleep. I would love to try this one.
I went to the store today and looked for this one but they did not have it. I think I will have ti order this online.
Now this Is something I really should look into!! I have the hardest time falling asleep at night. Could really use something like this to help get a good nights rest for once
I’ve never heard this before I think I might just need this really need this.
This would come in handy. Sleeping is hard for me ever since I was little…
Always good when a company has good customer service. They look like they are easy to take , which is one reason i hate taking pills.
I hear you on that. They’re reasonably sized and you can always just open one and dump it in your mouth.. lol my ex did that will pills.
My friend should hear about this. She needs the aids.
Me. I’m lights out in seconds 🙂
Thanks so much for the chance to win. I can’t remember the last time I slept through the night. I wake up with back pain all night long and by noon everyday, it wears on me.
Wow – Stacie you do a lot on a little sleep – I am awestruck – I so liked your list of research studies – and I’ll save that to refer to – I might give your suggested Berry Sleepy a try also! 🙂
I need this. I get, like, no sleep. Its awful.
I get 6 or 7 hours and I know I need more. I would potentially try these. I don’t have much trouble getting to sleep. It’s more the staying asleep and getting to bed at a decent hour that is my issue.
I have not heard of Berry Sleepy before! This sounds wonderful for when you can’t sleep! I have problems with jet lag when we travel! I will have to keep an eye out for this at the store!
Omg that’s crazy! I really wish you could get some sleep because I know the difference it can make to someones day just having a good nights sleep. It sounds strange that a product designed to help you sleep could actually keep you awake instead but I guess everyone is wired differently, good luck with your future attempts… I hope you get somne sleep real soon 🙂
6 hours is about what I get too. In fact, it’s already 3 am here, and I have no idea how it got so late so fast.
I hear ya, its 4:49am and I don’t plan on sleeping at this point.. ugh
These sound pretty cool! I love how you showed what is inside as well, that is an important factor for me when looking at pills and supplements. The bottle looks fun and its something I would be in to. Thanks for sharing it with us! 🙂 I could definitely use these!
I’ve never heard of this! I’ve been getting bad bags under my eyes lately, so maybe I need this!
I dont sleep well, at all. I am not sure why but it sucks so I feel your pain. This stuff looks interesting! I haven’t heard of it until now!
I’ve never heard of these before – might be very helpful! thanks for the info!
I really need to try this. I’m always looking for ways to better my sleep.
You must be exhausted! I am so incredibly grumpy (and even nauseous) if I don’t get at least seven hours of sleep at night. Sorry that these didn’t work to well for you. I took half a Unisom when I was preggo and it worked like a charm.
hahaha I never heard of these before but it seems a good one to give a go, haha!
My husband would be the first one that needs to try this! He has a hard time sleeping since he works nights and his schedule is never set. I can’t believe you stay up so late and get up so early. Can you be my alarm clock?! I always try to get up before dawn and NEVER make it.
I don’t get a lot of sleep. I am like you, wide awake even after taking a sleep aid. I have tried everything!
For those who need it, this sounds like a great option rather than popping pills one after another that can do more harm than good. I actually get 7-8 hours of sleep per night without any help, other than my own tiredness, which is great 🙂 I might be having a bit of trouble falling asleep now because of the Daylight Savings, but I’ll be good in a few weeks!
I am a morning person but there are times that I wake up in the middle of the night. I might need this one of these days.
I definitely need something like this for those nights where I find myself sleeping 2 hours before work. It ends up messing my whole day up so badly. Sometimes people don’t realize how important a good nights rest can really be towards your day.
Thank you for your honest review. I have a very bad case of insomnia as well. Some things work and some things don’t. What works for me might not work for you and vice versa. I’ve found you just have to try it to see for yourself.
It’s funny how certain remedies will work on other people, and not on others. I think I’m like that with coffee – I can have 3 cups of Joe right before going to bed, and I don’t feel wired or jittery. Anyhow, I don’t like taking sleep supplements or drinking chamomile tea to relax. My sleep schedule is erratic, but I probably do get 7-8 hours of sleep altogether, just not at the same time as everyone else
I should give this a try. Seems I never get a full, restful nights sleep. Thank you for sharing.
Everyone is different and what may work for some doesn’t always work for others and I think a lot of people forget that. I am sorry that these didn’t work for you. I am like you though, I work better on less sleep. I get so much more done. Like now. It’s 11pm and my son is passed out and I am over here working and I will be up for a few more hours to get what I need to go done. I work better in the evening. I am not sure if you have, but maybe you can try melatonin if you have’t already? Everyone I know who takes it, it works for them. Good luck! =) I hope you can get some sleep!
I am the same way! Some days, I don’t need that much sleep. I just tend to work best at night and seem more energized. But then other days, I’m falling asleep early. I’m a big believer that the body will guide you to what it needs. If I feel my eyelids heavy at 9pm or 9:30 (happens rarely!) and I can give in, I do. And I sleep many hours those nights. But if I’m up and working, I rarely will go to bed just to go to bed. I stay up as long as I have the energy. Hope you get some sleep!
I average 7 hours of sleep a night.
Thanks for the contest.
