Somadrol is a dietary supplement and sleep support aid that is designed to promote restful, rejuvenating sleep, while also boosting the production of growth hormones within the body. As a result, the product states that it will allow the user to awake feeling more refreshed and ready to take on the day.
The goal of the product is to encourage and increase REM sleep, or rapid eye movement sleep, which is the restorative aspect of the sleep cycle. To learn more about sleep and what sleep aids are most beneficial to you, follow this link to a top 10 list of sleep aids.
The product website looks professional and offer a fair amount of superficial information regarding their product, but not much in the way of clinical data or explanation regarding the function or usage of certain ingredients. Furthermore, there are no testimonials or reviews offered up to support the claims of effectiveness made by the manufacturer’s themselves.
The product directions recommend that users than two capsules at a time just before going to bed for occasional sleeplessness.
Each bottle of Somadrol comes with 60 capsules, so if it is used daily, then each bottle should be a monthly supply. It is sold for $49.49 through the manufacturer’s site, plus shipping and handling.
Here are some of the ingredients that are included in Somadrol:
Zinc: A metal and essential trace element that is necessary for proper human health. It can be used to treat eye diseases, such as night blindness and cataracts, as well as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, psoriasis. Additionally, it can be helpful in treating ADHD, tinnitus, Alzheimer’s disease, and ulcers. It does not have a direct connection to sleep health, but it is necessary for the proper growth and regulation of the human body.
5-HTP: Extracted from an African plant named Griffonia simplicifolia, it is used primarily for treating sleep disorders like insomnia, as well as anxiety, depression, obesity, ADHD, seizures, and migraines. The ingredient works by increasing the production of serotonin in the brain and nervous system. Unfortunately, some negative side effects can occur when taking the ingredient. Such as:
Valerian Root: An herb that is mostly used for treating sleep disorders, particularly for those who suffer from insomnia. The supplement functions as a sedative for the brain as well as the nervous system, which reduces anxiety and stress, making it an effective treatment for those who cannot get to sleep because they can’t shut their brain off.
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.
Passion Flower Extract: A flower whose above ground parts are used to make medicine. It can treat several different symptoms and has many uses, but is mostly used to treat sleep problems. The chemicals within the plant are calming and can induce sleep while also relaxing muscles and preventing them from spasming.
Vitamin B6: Vitamin that is found in foods like beans, vegetables, meat, eggs, and cereals, as well as produced in a laboratory. Its main function is to prevent and treat anemia, heart disease, and high cholesterol.
The seller and manufacturer of Somadrol goes by the name EST, and states that its intent as a company is to connect the Sports Nutrition industry with the Sports Performance industry. The only contact information that they make available is a page through which consumers can submit questions electronically. The company does not maintain a page with the Better Business Bureau, and do not appear to be involved in any lawsuits or litigation.
Somodrol seems designed more towards the active athlete that is having trouble sleeping. It states that it intendeds to perform a duel role as a sleep aid and growth hormone releaser, which can help with the recovery and development of muscles. Unfortunately, some of the ingredients that are intended to address the growth hormone can add to the potential of negative side effects. Most consumers who are having trouble sleeping aren’t simultaneously concerned with muscle development.
Because of the product attempting to perform two services at once, the price is an unusually high $49.49, which is simply untenable for more consumers who are just seeking relief from sleeplessness.
