I used this product for the first time last night and although I do believe in the basic premise of certain plants having medicinal properties, as my sleep pattern for the past week has been so badly disturbed due to an imminent house move and job change, I was a bit sceptical as to whether anything could help improve my sleep pattern.
I took this about 10 minutes before getting into bed, which being later than advised by the product guidance, meant when I got into bed I still felt wide awake. However after about 10 minutes of reading I was beginning to yawn, and 5 minutes after that I switched the light out and pretty much fell asleep straight away. I did wake up about an hour later because I needed the bathroom, but I'd been in such a deep sleep that when I did wake up, I was convinced that I'd been asleep for hours, rather than for only an hour.
I woke up once more for another loo call about 2 hours before my alarm went off, but again went straight back to sleep afterwards.
I'd therefore say that despite my still waking up in the night, I was waking up for valid reasons, rather than because my sleep pattern was as disturbed. As such I would recommend this product as a definite help to improving bad sleep patterns, even if it's not a total cure that 'knocks you out' for the night.
