I have PCOS and really struggle to get deep and restful sleep. Just 3 days in to taking this and I already feel like my sleep is much better quality and I don't wake up foggy headed
I took a chance and bought a years supply, so glad I did!!
Helped me sleep through
I’d been really struggling with staying asleep in the night after a really difficult break up and life changes. I found Valerian Root helped get me to sleep but didn’t do much for me in terms of staying asleep. I’d taken 5-HTP previously (years ago), so I thought it was worth trying these - especially as I’d had a good experience with Free Soul’s Ashwagandha gummies. I can’t believe that I’m now sleeping 7-8 hours solidly, when I used to wake up every couple of hours… I feel so much more refreshed and actually look forward to getting into bed :)
Improved sleep quality in just a few weeks!
These have been a game changer for me! Never had trouble falling asleep but the quality of my sleep has never been great. These have definitely helped improve the quality of my sleep and I feel a lot fresher in the mornings!
Very restful sleep. Can't wait for bedtime these days!
Easy to swallow and definitely do help to relax you for bed. I now go up and don't even get time to get my book out now. Up the stairs, teeth, moisturiser, eyes feel heavy, light off, out for the count within seconds my husband says. I've struggled with sleep for 3 decades and have taken most sedation over the years but I'm more hippy than pill happy so would always prefer herbal remedies. I think these have made real difference to my sleep quality as well as time to drop off. Also if I wake up in the night I find it very easy to fall back asleep in no time. No more pacing the floor or endless cups of tea and reading through the small hours! Hallelujah! Will be repurchasing after I'm out of these.
At last a good night's sleep!
I have had trouble sleeping for a few years now, often laying awake for hours and then falling to sleep just when it’s time to get up! Subsequently being tired and irritable the next day. Sometimes I am able to drop off to sleep only then to find myself wide awake after an hour. I have tried several methods of relaxation, different exercise, changed my habits like bedtime and diet and even changed bedrooms but nothing has really helped. I have tried prescription sleeping pills from my doctor and though they helped me to go to sleep, it was not a refreshing sleep, I did not wake well and felt ‘drugged’ like a zombie in the day. Even natural remedies containing things like valerian root render me drowsy and foggy all day.As an Amazon Vine reviewer, I had the opportunity to try these “Sleep” capsules containing 5-HTP from ‘Free Soul’, so with nothing to lose gave them a try.I was a little sceptical at first (and a tad suspicious of some of the other reviews). However, I have to say that I am very impressed indeed. Nothing much happened the first two days but by the third night I went straight off to sleep and only woke up once briefly during the night. Since then (about three weeks) I have been taking one capsule about an hour before bedtime and I have been regularly sleeping well, such a wonderful feeling to be able to get a decent night’s sleep again. Furthermore, I have been waking up naturally in the morning feeling refreshed and ready for the day, with no ‘drugged’ drowsiness or groggy foggy-headed after-effects.I did not know much about 5-HTP before now but a little research suggests that it may also be beneficial for other things such as migraines, depression and anxiety, fibromyalgia and even weight-loss. I’ve noted warnings that you should not take this if you are also taking any other forms of sleeping tablets and/or antidepressants and of course you should always take advice from a qualified doctor or medical professional. This seems to be quite a high dose of 5-HTP in comparison and apparently it is possible that some people might, rarely, experience mild side effects, so if this is a concern I strongly suggest that you do your own research and, if need be, take advice with regard to your own personal health considerations.In my own case I can honestly report that, three weeks on, I am enjoying the benefit of improved sleep and have experienced absolutely no adverse side effects so far. In fact I feel great!I will definitely continue to order these capsules in future.
Work well for me.
I have been taking these for a few weeks and after a initial period I am sleeping better and generally fall a sleep within 20 minutes of bed, wake up once and then through the night. That for me is a good as previously I could go to bed and be awake for 2-3 hours before falling a sleep and then up within 6 hours. I feel like I am getting a full nights sleep now of between 7-9 hours.The tablets are good value, easy to swallow and at one a day should last six months.Only downside is it doesn’t say when you should take them! The last sleeping tablets I tried were taken in the morning and I have followed that but I do think the bottle should give some direction.
Improved my sleep quality
I've been trying this 5HTP - High Strength Natural Sleep Complex for a couple of weeks now. The idea is that the body converts the 5HTP into Serotonin in the brain, giving a better, more relaxed sleep. I found that I have had a better, more restful and longer sleep. This supplement didn't help me to get off to sleep quicker though, and I'm thinking that this may be due to the time that it takes for the body to absorb and then convert the 5HTP, so now I'm trying taking one of the supplements half an hour before I go to bed.The bottle contains 180 Vegan Gluten Free Capsules with a recommended dose of 1 capsule per day so one bottle represents 6 months supply which is very good value if these work for you. The capsules are pretty standard in size but I don't have any problem swallowing them. Note that the bottle does not have a child safe lid, so keep these well out of reach of small children.
I work night shift and sometimes find it hard to get to sleep and stay asleep for longer than a few hours during the day. I take these pills about an hour before bed and I honestly can’t believe how they have helped me. I seem to be falling asleep much quicker and instead of getting around 4 hours sleep I’m now getting 6/7 hours. There are no side affects and they are easy to swallow too.
Sleeping really well
Sleeping very soundly and feeling much less anxious. These natural sleeping tablets are so effective and have countered my insomnia really well - I wake up really refreshed and not drowsy at all. They have also helped reduce my anxiety significantly. Can’t thank Free Soul enough for these high strength 5HTP tablets
Having tried a number of herbal sleep pills, I'm always intrigued by newer products so thought I'd give these a go to see if it helps improve my insomnia! And boy was I impressed!I took one on the first night about an hour before bed, and you soon feel yourself feeling very calm and drowsy - happy to report an excellent night sleep, no waking up during the night, and a brilliant refreshed feeling in the morning! That hasn't happened for a long time as with some other pills you do often feel a bit groggy. Not with these!it says to take one every night, so that's what I've been doing and it has helped with general calmness and peacefulness before bed, no more fretting about how much sleep I may or may not get. I think these are really well priced and very easy to take, and it's so nice to find a product that seems to continue to work - I've been taking them for over a week now and only had one blip night where it did take a couple of hours before I dropped off, but then slept soundly and the waking up in the middle of the night thing that I suffered with before, thanks to perimenopause seems to have been eradicated. Long may they continue to help me get the sleep I need and carry on with the refreshed feeling! Highly recommended!!
I've been having terrible trouble sleeping this last year or so. I wake up every night between 2 and 4 a.m. and then that's it, there is no chance whatsoever of me going back to sleep.I've been using a well k own over-the-counter herbal sleep remedy (beginning with an N), it works, but it can work out tobe really expensive. I thought I try these to see if it would help me. I never heard of any of the ingredients.It works! It's amazing. I slept like a baby all night long and didn't wake up once. A few nights of these and I'll start to feel normal again.I took my very first dose of this after I'd already been in bed for an hour and a half, as I was having trouble falling asleep because I taken it so late I did still feel groggy at 10 a.m. nextday. My recommendation is to take these a good hour before you need to go to sleep.Taking these should help you get back into a more normal sleep pattern. It's a huge bottle, so works out really good value in comparison to the leading brand of sleep aid herbal remedy.
I sleep so well and overall feel great taking these!I like the big dark glass bottle, and the dark blue 'night time' label.The ingredients are all great, too.Suitable for vegans.Dosage is 1 capsule and there is 180 capsules.After a few days I upgraded to 2 (there isn't any warning on the bottle and after all, it's just one extra capsule) and it works super well for me. Unless I drink tons of liquids before bed time I don't really wakeup through the night at all. And I wake up well rested in the morning.There is no stress in my life currently but I could occasionally for various reasons be somewhat completely awake at night. Not when taking these.Really happy with the product and would recommend it.
They either work or I am very tired
To say my sleep has been awful recently would be an understatement, no matter what, can never get a proper nice sleep with as I imagine most things running on your mind. Now taking these and since then each night has been great. Not sure if really its A) down to being so tired in general recently or B) they actually work, but either way each time I get in bed am nodding off much quicker.Most of it is bulking agent, but there is some stuff in there you typically find to aid for sleep so no issues there. You get alot of tablets for the price so all good.
Well worth a try!
Now I know that these won’t work for everyone but my personal experience has been very positive from the very first night! I used to suffer from insomnia but after going on HRT this disappeared. Due to a recent health scare I’ve had to stop taking my HRT and unfortunately the insomnia is back. I took one of these about an hour before bed and I can actually physically feel when it kicks in! I do feel a little nauseous when it kicks in but the feeling of tiredness that overtakes me really does cancel that out for me. As soon as I get that feeling I go to bed and am asleep within 10-15 minutes. I have tracked my sleep and I am having my deep sleep pretty soon after I fall asleep and it is much higher than usual so I know that they are working. I think this is a great value pack as you get 6 months worth of tablets here. I’m completely blown away with how well they work and will continue to take them for as long as I can.
They work for me
These 5-HTP supplements are sourced from Griffonia Seed Extract and contain 400mg per serving of pure Griffonia Seed Extract. Each bottle contains 180 tablets for a 6-month supply. The pills also contain L-Tryptophan, Chamomile, and Lemon Balm to enhance the strength of the supplements.I just started taking these pills and they are quite good for me. They force me to sleep well during the night. The recommended dose is 1 pill per day. I take 1 1-2 hours before bed and work like the dream.Can see an improvement in my sleep and mood. Could be a placebo effect, but regardless it has improved my sleep and mood. They are very easy to swallow.I love that they come in a jar container and not plastic as most of the supplements these days.I think these are great if you are looking for the ideal supplements to provide herbal support for the body and mind.
Great product. Both my husband and I have started using it and have had the best sleep in ages. Can definitely recommend it. We take it about an hour or so before bed and fall asleep almost instantly, and in the morning, we both wake up feeling well-rested and not groggy at all.
Sleeping much better
I know it has only been a week but I am sleeping much better. One of the best 5 HTP Ive tried!
Not faster sleep but better quality
These don't make you fall asleep any quicker. You still need sleep discipline, no screens, routine, some reading etc. These make the quality of sleep you get so much better, I feel so much more refreshed in the mornings.
Slept Like a Baby!
This product is magical! I have been suffering from insomnia for a long time and having tried most herbal remedies out there, I wasn't expecting a lot from this sleep product. I am glad to say I have been blown away - I can now fall asleep before sunrise.Not sure if this is one of the effects of 5-htp, but I have also been feeling more relaxed. This is exactly what I was looking for, I highly recommend to anyone who is suffering with sleep difficulties
I was surprised but these actually do work!
5HTP - High Strength Natural Night Complex - 400mg Griffonia Seed Extract EnhancedI've been taking these now for 8 days as I think you need to give your system time to get used to sleeping aids, especially of the herbal variety.For the last 3 years, I've taken Nytol every night, one hour before bed as they do actually work and haven't considered trying anything else, I mean, why would I when I've found a product that works! However, for curiosity, I thought I would try this brand which contains a main active ingredient called 'Griffonia' seed extract, I've never heard of it and have been used to taking 'Valerian' root extract, which is found in the Nytol tablets.There's two big differences between these and Nytol, firstly the price, I get 21 tablets for nearly £5 which costs me just over £20 in 3 months, yet the tablets from Free Soul are supplied in a jar of 180 which will last me 6 months for just £7.97. The next difference is the size of the tablets, the 'Free Soul' are very large as compared to Nytol. Price isn't everything of course, if something is cheap it normally doesn't work as well, but I was astonished at the results from 'free Soul'.The first night, when I took one of these, I slept well, just as well as I would with Nytol, each consecutive night was the same! I had no stomach issues, as certain herbal tablets can cause upsets, but these were fine. Fast forward to 8 days and I'm sleeping like a log as it were.The instructions on the bottle state that these should be taken half an hour before bed, I found that it took just over an hour for these to work as I was initially still wide awake when I went to bed, so an hour beforehand and it works for me very well. I'm waking up in the morning more tired though, I'm fine when I've had my morning coffee and then I'm wide awake.Now, you may be asking yourselves, is it mind over matter, do I just think these herbal tablets are working when in fact I would just fall to sleep normally without taking anything, well, to answer that question, I tried on day 8, and I couldn't get to sleep, so ended up taking one of these, which, after an hour, I dosed off.I shall be buying these sleeping aids from now on, I'm glad I was lucky enough to try them and as a result I'm going to be saving myself money in the long run plus 'Free Soul' have a new loyal customer! (Sorry Nytol)!Highly recommended!
So good! They really work
I struggle with sleeping so badly. I take one or two of these before bed if I'm struggling to wind down and I sleep through the night. Would highly recommend. Such good value too.
Economically priced sleep supplement.
This blend of ingredients is a convincing supplement to help with getting good sleep. I'm a night owl and tend to need to read quietly for 20 minutes or so before I can get to sleep. This product has started to shorten that time by five minutes so I think it's effective. Certainly Lemon Balm works for me, and L-Tryptophan, from what I've read about it, appears to have proven benefits for sleep quality. Having said that the dose of L-Tryptophan in these capsules is quite low at 100mg, when research has shown that 250mg is proven to work well for many people. I guess that the lemon balm and chamomile ingredients are able to boost the effects. There is less evidence for the benefits of Griffonia seed extract on sleep and I think the other ingredients will be the most effective.There is some evidence that L-Tryptophan can help with the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea.The capsules are normal size, so are easy to swallow and they have no unpleasant flavour. The cost of the 180-capsule bottle is modest and good value. The packaging is a glass bottle and steel screwcap - both recyclable.
really helping me
Only been using a few nights but these worked for me from night one, I took them an hour before bed & then I read until I am tired, normally I then turn the light off & try sleep and my mind wakes up keeping me away, since I have been on these I am falling alseep while reading & when the light goes out so does my mind! I feel a bit tired in the morning but I am easily getting 8hrs taking these I am thrilled they are really helping me ger my sleep pattern back. I have had no side effects other than these really helping me sleep!
Certainly helps me sleep
Wasn’t sure what to expect from this product, but I’ve taken a capsule for a few nights so far, and although I can’t report any miraculous effects to my sleeping, it’s definitely helped a little. I find I need to take it about 6pm to give it time to get into my system ready for bedtime, and it’s helped me nod off, and go back to sleep when I’ve woken during the night.Seems to be a good product and the price of £7.97 is very good value for what you get.
Makes such a difference
Amazed at how effective these capsules are. Excellent sleep.
Can tell the difference in one night
I haven't had these long - only received yesterday - but having used them last night i'm incredibly impressed. Had longer than usual deep sleep (I track this on the sleep cycle app), and have been super efficient today! Will definitely keep using.
Sleeping like a baby
Been having these consistently for about 3 weeks now and am sleeping really well now. Very effective product.
Finally got amazing sleep
FINALLY GOT TO SLEEP!!!! Been looking for something to genuinely help with my sleep issues and so glad that I've found it. Haven't had a good sleep in years, but had this last night and slept like a baby.
So grateful for this product
I don't usually leave reviews but I had to for this product. I've suffered with poor sleep for years, and have tried everything under the sun (or moon...) to try and solve it - lavender, pillow sprays, massages - you name it. Nothing helped. But I had a dose of Free Soul Sleep and slept a whole 8 hours for the first time in years and woke up totally fresh - incredible product. Thank you so much Free Soul
