Good Day Chocolate (Sleep)
Let me begin by saying this product had me at its packaging. Decorated with an adorable 3D blue moon and a bright, eye-catching product description, this tiny little container instantly caught my eye. And, with the word SLEEP in giant letters, it was a no-brainer that my eyes would gravitate toward this direction. I suffer from Insomnia and If I don’t take something to help me sleep I would never ever sleep. I’m always looking for new products. I also look for products as natural as possible. I found Good Day Chocolate from Whole foods for $3.99
I counted that the little box contained eight chocolate balls covered in a blue shell. Each of the balls, which most closely resemble peanut M&Ms, are in fact made with 1mg of melatonin per piece. Melatonin is a hormone that helps regulate your sleep patterns.
The side of the box provides varying levels of sleep you can obtain by taking certain dosages. Honestly, I am more of the #4 Out Like A Light which is one serving 4 pieces and a box only contains 8 pieces. So for $3.99, It’s just worth buying the 80 count if it’s something you plan on using every night or multiple times a week.
Before I get into the result, let me say that these chocolates are delicious. Be careful not to get distracted or carried away (THESE ARE NOT INDULGING CANDY), because you can easily indulge in an entire box without thinking about it.
The first night, I felt a deep sense of peace and relaxation shortly after consuming the two pieces. The actual tiredness didn‘t take long to kick in either. The result of taking two pieces stayed true to the description: I felt ready for bed without feeling out like a light. Sure enough, I soon fell asleep relaxingly (more on my actual sleep in a bit).
The second night also held true to its promise: Approximately 15 minutes after consuming four chocolates, I was out. That transition from awake into slumber felt so relaxing. I felt rested.
Now, when it comes to my actual sleep experience, I need to preface by saying I am one of those people who gets up to use the restroom in the middle of every night sometimes multiple times a night. It‘s frustrating regardless of my slumber‘s depth.
With these chocolates, however (especially on night No. 2), I only got up once (maybe twice on night No. 1)! And while it took me a little bit of time to fall back asleep, once I finally did, I was out.
I honestly hardly ever remember my dreams. But melatonin has been known to cause some people to have vivid dreams check this article out Melatonin And Crazy Dreams?
Because these chocolates worked for me (an adult), May I recommend trying the brand‘s special kids‘ version ($15.99). They are essentially the exact same product as what I used but made with a dosage appropriate for someone younger. And the pediatrician-recommended products come with 50 servings (so it‘ll get you through many sleepless nights).
I didn’t have weird dreams but you may (something you‘ll have to keep in mind if you want to move forward with using these), there‘s no reason I wouldn‘t try these again I would most likely would purchase the Good day Chocolate for kids I probably wouldn‘t take them every night, but for those instances when I really can‘t get to sleep or when it‘s imperative I sleep well, these are an excellent bet. They kick in quickly and also help calm nerves prior to actual slumber.
