iChill ~ Therefore I Sleep (Like A Baby)Mar 2nd, 2012 | By Clout and About | Category: Featured
What’s a girl to do if she can’t sleep at night? No, not insomnia ~ just a busy day working a couple revolutions and drinking too much coffee and Coke Zero which equates to a boatload of caffeine. This was my dilemma the other night. I had accidentally taken a 2 hour nap after a daylong webinar, only to be awakened by my pup who bolted from on top of me to bark madly at the mailperson at the door. It was almost 5pm by then so I had to rush to get dinner done and a domino effect of the hurry-ups ensued until a late bedtime. Fast forward to midnite ~ I was tossing and turning and had already turned the television off. Just couldn’t find the right position to sleep. Wasn’t sure if I turned the tv off too soon.
Debating whether to declare temporary
insanity insomnia, I got out of bed.
I remembered my bottles of iChill in the fridge which I had found at the Winter Fancy Food show. I’d tried it previously and thought I slept kinda good ~ but me? I’m always skeptical about dietary supplements. And I really couldn’t tell if it helped me or not. I needed more convincing. I normally don’t have trouble sleeping and blamed the restless evening on OD’ing on my leaded beverages. My sister, though ~ she swears by melatonin and valerian root. She’s the frequent traveler in the family and has no problem adjusting to time zones precisely because of these aids. Since these were the main ingredients in this sleep shot, and the fact that they were not drugs, I was happy to have the relaxation shots handy.
So I chugged a bottle of my sleep potion. And logged onto Facebook to chat with friends.
iChill has zero calories, carbs and sugar but is does have Melatonin to manage circadian rhythms after a hectic day, Valerian Root for natural sedation and B Vitamins to boost mood, ease stress and promote increased cell metabolism.
It didn’t take me long to feel much more relaxed. I looked at the clock ~ about 30 minutes later. Then off I went back to bed.
Easy peasy! No problem at all. No tossing or turning. No feeling drugged or groggy. It was just good old delicious slumber all the way till about 8am or so. And I woke up refreshed. Actually, with an extra burst of energy I noticed as I had to immediately walk my dog.
Truth in Advertising? I’d say yes on this berry flavored grind unwinder! I swore by it the day after! Good enough to recommend? Sure, you betcha! It’s not habit forming. Keep a couple bottles for those nights when sleep just doesn’t come easy ~ or when you’re traveling and need a bit of help adjusting your body clock.
Note: as with all “dietary supplements”, please read the ingredients and check with your doctor if you have allergies, are pregnant or nursing.
