The Good Stuff
The Thorne Difference
In short, this supplement is great for sleep. The scoop should be replaced with one with a longer handle. If the Monk Fruit is too sweet, then just dilute it more. In depth, following Andrew Huberman's Sleep Cocktail of Magnesium Threonate / Bisglycinate 300-400 mg + Theanine 200-400 mg + Apigenin 50 mg and I'm now completely off strong RX's. Some people achieve some gastrointestinal discomfort from magnesium, but typically your body will get used to it, so nothing to be alarmed of. Five stars.
Tried it out to help me fall asleep after spending all night working on the computer. Does the job.
If you're looking for something to help with sleep, then try it. It's worth the $40 for a 2-month supply. I take one scoop around an hour after dinner, and despite some stomach issues the first few days, I have noticed a significant improvement both in my ability to fall asleep, as well as quality. Definitely recommend titrating over the first week, maybe 1/4 scoop for 2 days, then half, etc.
I pair this with Sleepy Time tea and about 8 ounces of Thorne's Magnesium formula. One of the best nights of sleep I've had in quite some time without the use of melatonin. Even better because I experience groggy feelings on waking when I use melatonin. The lemon flavor took some time getting used to, but it isn't bad, just an acquired taste I'd say.
The Magnesium Bisglycinate dissolves quickly and is the exact type of magnesium I need. As others have mentioned before me, the sweetness is too much and a shallower container like many of the other Thorne powders would be nice.
