I can’t sleep. I have trouble falling asleep and I have trouble staying asleep. Whatever the reason, I’ve been in search of the perfect solution to help me fall and stay asleep. So, when a PR firm approached me, I jumped at the opportunity to sample Momentous, Sleep Nightime Recovery capsule.
What’s in it?
Three ingredients only: Melatonin, Magtein® (Magnesium L-threonate), and Wild Jujube Seed Extract, to help you gently fall asleep, reduce anxiety, and improve circadian rhythm, and achieve higher quality recovery & better performance.
The only ingredient I didn’t know was the Wild Jujube Seed Extract, which was defined on the Momentous website. Here’s what it said:
“The bioactive compounds in Jujube are flavonoids and saponins. Flavonoids have been found to increase the time spent in the SWS (slow-wave sleep) and REM (rapid eye movement) phases of sleep. Saponins have been found to act as a natural sedative and have a soothing effect on the entire nervous system.”
It also discussed the benefits which are:
- Calms the mind
- Quiets neural activity
- Induces and sustains sleep
The makers recommend taking one capsule 30 minutes before bedtime.
What did I think?
The firm provided me with two packs of six capsules in each for a total of 12. I decided to test them out. My fear was that I would be groggy the next day and unable to function at work.
But my fears were not realistic. I gently fell asleep. I did wake up a time or two to go to the bathroom but I fell right back asleep. It was wonderful.
Getting up the next day, I felt great. Eager to get my workout in and start the day. I don’t know what the long term effect is, but there are days when I just need to sleep and on those days, I would consider taking Momentous.
