The perfect night sleep comes differently for everyone. Some people need peace and quiet with the correct temperature, a bed that suits their preference of soft or firmness, the proper clothing, a noise machine, soothing smells, an eye mask, the list can go on and on. For all of us that cannot just fall asleep as a rock through the whole night until our alarm clock goes off, sleep-aids are here to the rescue.
There is always Melatonin to help you fall asleep, but this is something that you do not want to get in the habit of using. Why? Melatonin takes away the serotonin in your brain, and therefore can cause feelings of depression. Melatonin also is only effective if you have enough time to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Without the correct amount of sleep with this sleep-aid, you will carry on your day feeling miserable. Side effects also include: irritability, sleepiness, and even dizziness.
Som Sleep on the other hand is compliant with so many people and dietary restrictions! It also does not lead to habit forming behaviors. Although there is some melatonin in the drink, there isn’t enough for you to have the side effects of melatonin alone.
The cans are 8.1 fluid ounces, which is about the size of a Red Bull can. This is the perfect size. I tried both the sugar free and sugar versions. I prefer the sugar flavor, but they are both appealing! With 8 grams of sugar, I do not feel guilty. The 4-pack starts at $9.99, and you can subscribe to save over the long run! There will also be a pop-up for 10% off your first purchase.
Som Sleep has been in countless publications as well! If you aren’t convinced, check these out to learn more:
My pajamas are from Shein, and say “Miso Sleepy” with miso soup and sushi, too cute not to buy!
