Sleep Optimizer is a dietary supplement and sleep aid that is designed to help the user fall asleep faster and establish a regular sleep schedule that is best for them. In addition to those benefits, the product also states that it promotes general relaxation and improves mood within the user.
The product formula is relatively straightforward and utilizes several familiar ingredients, but the promotion doesn’t mention the product’s ability to keep users asleep throughout the night, nor any potential side effects. Research experts have been hard at work evaluating the top sleep aids on the market, see their results and top 10 list here.
The manufacturer’s website looks professional but it can be a bit confusing to locate the product you’re looking for, as they sell several. The product page itself offers some good detailed ingredient information, including specific dosages, and supplement facts, in addition to a small paragraph describing how the product is supposed to function within the body. It does not offer any clinical data or relevant links to clinical data that we could find, however.
The product is not sold directly through the manufacturer’s site, but rather through several well-known online vendors such as Amazon and iHerb. It is sold in bottles of either 30 or 60 capsules, with the 30 generally selling for $8 to $9 plus shipping and handling, and the 60 selling for $10 to $12 plus shipping and handling. It seems clear the 60-capsule bottle is the better deal, especially since it is a month’s worth, as opposed to the thirty that last just 15 days.
The product contains the following ingredients:
Melatonin: A hormone that occurs naturally within the body and can also be made in a laboratory. Its main function is to help regulate the body’s internal clock and establish sleep and wake cycles, particularly for those who have alternative or changing sleep schedules.
Lemon Balm Leaf: An herb from the mint family, it is used to make medicine. It can be used for treating digestive issue, bloating, flatulence, and an upset stomach. Additionally, it has a calming effect, so it is included in many sleep aids for its ability to reduce anxiety, restlessness, and stress.
GABA: A chemical that is made in the brain and can also be taken as a supplement. It is generally used to relieve anxiety, improve mood, and treat ADHD. Additionally, it can also help to burn fat, lower blood pressure, and develop lean muscles. It can block neurotransmitters within the brain that allows the nerves within the body to relax.
L-Tryptophan: Amino acid the can be found in many plant and animal proteins, and it must be acquired by food. It has a variety of uses, including insomnia, sleep apnea, anxiety, depression, and ADHD. It is also thought by some to increase athletic performance. After entering the body, it is eventually converted in serotonin which can improve mood.
Hops: Derived from the hops plant, of which the dried flowering part is utilized to make medicine. It is primarily used to treat anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, ADHD, excitability, and tension. Additionally, it can be used to improve the user’s appetite, treat indigestion, and increase urine flow.

Just looking at the price of Sleep Optimizer you can see why it might appeal to the average consumer, as it is considerably cheaper than many other sleep aids that use many of the same ingredients. But upon further inspection, it seems part of the reason the price is so low, is because of the low dosages being user, particularly regarding melatonin which only contains 0.3mg per serving.
The consumer reviews for the product were somewhat lacking as well and echoed the sentiment that the product simply wasn’t strong enough, as many users stated it helped to relax them but not put them to sleep.
