A Sleep Formula that Reduces 2 AM Stress

A Sleep Formula that Reduces 2 AM Stress

Does your mind race at 2 in the morning? Do you get stressed out in the middle of the night, spending more time thinking about work when you’d rather be sound asleep? Is melatonin not cutting it for you? For me, the answer to all these questions during much of my professional life was always a resounding “yes,” and it’s terrible.

But that all changed two years ago. Now, I sleep stress-free and like a rock.

An Herbal Combination that’s Changed My Life

We launched Mental Tranquility last month, with overwhelming interest and extremely positive feedback. I couldn’t wait to launch this powdered blend, as I’ve been taking the herbs that inspired this product since the entrepreneurial journey of DAO Labs started in 2016, when the stress of start-up life hit a high note, and my sleep unfortunately went to the dogs.

I Could Fall Asleep, but Not Stay Asleep

It wasn’t so much an issue of falling asleep (I was exhausted), but rather it was the waking-up throughout the night and not being able to fall back to sleep (my racing mind would takeover – things that I had to do, things that I hadn’t done, etc.). It was awful. I’d frequently use melatonin, but that often left me groggy and didn’t help me stay asleep.

This all changed when my business partner introduced me to a very famous Chinese medicine formula that’s been used for hundreds of years to help with sleep, to reduce stress, and increase mental clarity.   Like with all things in the world of Chinese herbs, they are incredibly powerful but taste terrible, but I knew that we could solve that.

Within days of embracing these herbs, I noticed the following:

  • Uninterrupted, blissful quality sleep. If I did wake-up, I could quickly fall back to sleep with a quiet mind.  
  • I began waking-up earlier and more energized. I found myself racing to get a start on the day.
  • I had better mental clarity and energy, with increased focus on staying task oriented and getting things done.
  • Happier about most things!

The Power of These Herbs

We worked for nearly two years on perfecting the performance (creating an effervescent powder that mixes easily with water) and flavor blend, arriving at an incredibly refreshing “black cherry and spice” combination.   Those who have tried it experience a level of quality sleep and stress reduction that they thought unimaginable – and for good reason. Chinese herbs are powerful (ask any acupuncturist) but they can be unnecessarily complicated.

Are you in the “stressed out sleeper camp” and are exhausted from it? I’d encourage you to give melatonin a break and let the power and heritage behind this tasty blend of 15-herbs radically change your night, your level of stress….and hopefully your life as well.
