The Sleep Shot Review
The Sleep Shot comes from Nutrition Science Laboratories. I have reviewed a lot of sleeping aids; most of them come in pill form, a few are lozenges or chewables, some are food bars, but this is the first drink I have reviewed. Going with the drink approach is risky. People who hate taking pills and children may gravitate towards your product, but you still have to compete with chewables and lozenges. The only way to steal customers away from those options is to make your product taste really good. Most chewables and lozenges are gross to me because they are either too chalky (chewables) or they have that menthol/Vicks Vapor Rub kind of taste (you know what I’m talking about). So I can see how using the 5-Hour Energy model could work well in the sleeping pill industry. But, if it doesn’t taste good then you’re screwed.
The Sleep Shot has some great ingredients and it should work well for most people who suffer with sleeping problems.
The Sleep Shot Ingredients:
The ingredients found in The Sleep Shot include: vitamin B6, Niacin, Zinc, Magnesium, Melatonin, L-Theanine, GABA, and amplified Aloe Vera.
The vitamins and minerals in The Sleep Shot do support a healthy night’s sleep and they are necessary (or at least very helpful) in the process by which serotonin is converted into melatonin. Melatonin is a compound produced by the pineal gland in your brain. It is released at night and it is commonly known as the hormone that controls the sleep/wake cycle. It is a common and effective ingredient in sleeping pills. Theanine and GABA are also powerful ingredients and when combined with melatonin it is hard to imagine that The Sleep Shot could fail to put you to sleep. Aloe Vera has no business being in a sleeping product. The only reason for its inclusion would be for taste…although I have never found the taste of aloe vera to be all that appealing…not sure why else it is in The Sleep Shot.
The Sleep Shot Taste:
Most consumer reports complain that The Sleep Shot tastes terrible. And for all intents and purposes, that is that. I don’t care how well it may work, if it tastes gross nobody will want to take it. Hopefully The Sleep Shot, for their own sake, will add some sugar and flavoring to their nectar and become a prospering business. Until then I’m not so optimistic about their chances.
A 6-pack of The Sleep Shot costs $6.99. You can but it from GNC. GNC offers a 30-day money back guarantee on most products so you may want to ask them if The Sleep Shot qualifies for their refund policy. The directions suggest that you drink half a bottle at night (a full bottle for more power). So you end up paying 7 bucks for 12 days of sleep. You can get much better value from sleeping pills with the same ingredients. If The Sleep Shot tastes as gross as a lot of customers say it does, then you are definitely better off going with another product.
