Dream Water touted as a natural sleep aid

  • Dream Water comes in three flavors.

    Dream Water comes in three flavors.

Time change, especially in the spring, when we lose an hour, can wreak havoc on your health.
We know lack of sleep contributes to all kinds of problems: weight gain, inflammatory diseases, inattention while driving, just plain crankiness.
Now, Dream Products has created a natural sleep aid meant to help people who have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep: Dream Water. It's a zero-calorie, 2.5-ounce shot of drug-free sleep aid.
The company promotes it as a natural treatment. The main ingredients include GABA (gamma-amino buteric acid), an amino acid that helps you relax; melatonin, a hormone that helps induce sleep; and 5-HTP, an amino acid to improve sleep quality, meaning it helps you stay asleep.
The amino acid 5-HTP is similar to what is in turkey, to which people attribute sleep-inducing characteristics.
I tried one about 30 minutes before going to bed, as directed, and it works. I have trouble going back to sleep if I wake up, and Dream Water did the trick.
I went right to sleep, woke up fewer times and went right to sleep again when I did wake up. And, most importantly, I woke up refreshed, as they say.
Dream Water flavors have clever names like Snoozeberry, which is pomegranate and blueberry; NighTea Night, citrus flavors; and Paradise PM, tropical flavors.
Shots come in a four-pack for about $14, a 12-pack and a 24-pack, and are available at most drug stores and online. The website is promoting a free Snoozeberry sample now. Find out more at www.drinkdreamwater.com.
