Product Features


The proprietary formula in RestAid combines Cysteine Milk Peptide, Tryptamine MEL, Vitamin B12, Lemon Balm Extract, and Hops Extract. Each of these five ingredients is said to work on a different phase of sleep to ensure quality rest. These phases are drowsiness, light sleep, deep sleep transition, deep sleep, and REM sleep. The main ingredient in RestAid is patented and the product claims to work within 30 minutes of use. Cysteine Milk Peptide works to boost levels of glutathione, a substance made by the body that helps break down toxins that may disrupt sleep.

The RestAid website presents a large number of testimonials, but does not include any clinical evidence to support their claims, other than mentioning that one of their ingredients is patented.

While RestAid appears to be an intriguing alternative to medicinal sleep aids, with an ingredient that would at least lower toxicity in the body, boosting overall health. It also contains many popular and proven natural sleep remedies. The testimonials are numerous, lengthy, and very positive. However, the makers of RestAid do not offer any scientific evidence to back up their product. Also, it is troubling that it has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase directly from the manufacturer. Further research into the reasons behind this is warranted before purchasing this product.

There should be no risk of side effects and the right ingredients will not leave the user feeling 'groggy' in the morning.
