In the United States, over 60 million people have trouble in sleeping. The National Transportation Safety Administration says that more people die from sleep-related accidents than from alcohol related accidents.

Sleep is one of the pillars of health, and the folks at BrainMD suggests taking Restful Sleep can help you sleep like a baby and wake up feeling refreshed.

Can Restful Sleep let you have the best sleep of your life? Read our Restful Sleep Review to find out.

3) Restful Sleep Ingredients

Restful Sleep contains the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B6
  • Magnesium
  • GABA
  • Valerian Extract
  • Melatonin

The main ingredient here is GABA as it helps us feel relaxed, which is the first step in getting quality sleep. GABA needs B6 to bypass the blood brain barrier, which explains why we have lots of B6 in the formula.

Magnesium’s purpose is to address possible deficiencies, especially when there is evidence that suggests magnesium deficiency can lead to sleep disturbance.

Valerian is a known sleep herb and melatonin is known as the sleep hormone.

Other inactive ingredients: Vegetable cellulose (vegetarian capsule), microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide.

4) Does Restful Sleep Work?

The formula is described as a sleep aide, but we think it works best as a relaxant, which just happens to help you sleep faster.

Valerian and melatonin are known sleep ingredients, so no complaints there. GABA + B6 works, but only barely for sleep latency, or how fast you transition from awake to sleep.

They should have added more GABA, especially since it maight have a hard time surviving our gastric juices.

10) Final Thoughts on Restful Sleep

Restful Sleep is a high quality sleep aide formulated with ingredients that can help you relax, sleep well, and wake up feeling refreshed.

There is evidence of synergy betwen ingredients, especially with B6 and GABA.

The use of Valerian and Melatonin is well-known in the sleep supplement industry, and Magnesium deficiency-induced sleep problems is addressed by adding a decent amount of the mineral as well.
