Food for Sleep is scientifically formulated with ingredients clinically demonstrated to improve your sleep and your performance. No drugs, no weird herbs, just food ingredients that you’re familiar with: Montmorency tart cherry juice, which offers high levels of antioxidants, and a whey protein that’s exceptionally high in bioavailable tryptophan, an essential amino acid that has been demonstrated in multiple clinical trials to improve both sleep and recovery. We add a little water and some natural flavors and that’s it. Simple, clean and effective.
Unlike other sleep aids, Food for Sleep does not contain chemicals or habit-forming drugs, so users don’t have to worry about safety risks or bizarre side effects. At 2½ ounces, Food for Sleep is also travel-friendly, and particularly handy for those sleeping somewhere besides their usual beds the night before an event (often in a hotel or on a friend’s couch).

Ingredients shown to enhance recovery and performance
Even if you don’t have trouble sleeping, you would still benefit from getting more “high-quality” sleep. Most people who complain of sleep problems may reach for a commercially available sleep aid or a prescription medication. However, these sleep aids are not ideal:
- Most herbs and supplements are not supported by scientific evidence of their efficacy
- Chemical and pharmaceutical sleep aids are often so potent that they disrupt the normal sleep architecture and may cause severe side effects
