We talk about caffeine-filled beverages so often, that it’s nice once in a while to write about something that isn’t trying to get you all wired up. So let’s grab the unique bottle shape of Body Works Sleep Shot and see if it really does help you sleep better.
Distributed by RelaxZen, the Sleep Shot is marketed as a dietary supplement, thus prone to this classic disclaimer: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”
What’s inside the 153 mg of “Proprietary Relaxation Enhancing and Stress Reducing Blend”? Chamomile extract, GABA, L-Theanine, L-Threonine, Valerian Root Extract, and our good sleeping friend, Melatonin.
The design is attractive for a shot, with a unique tapered look and slim bottle. It’s all done with a packaging wrap to produce the solid silver and blue color scheme over a plain white plastic bottle. Upon opening the cap, you are greeted with a faint grape scent, with a liquid that has a slight yellowish tint.
The taste, however, isn’t grape at all, but sweet and fruity. Like most shots, there’s a non-carbonated, syrupy experience. This Sleep Shot uses two artificial sweeteners, and they are very notable in the aftertaste.
But does it make you sleepy? As a person who is a light sleeper already, I have to say that within 30 minutes of consuming this shot, I did feel more “mellow” and relaxed (luckily, I reviewed this in the evening). Anytime you throw all those supplements together you are going to have a reaction like this, especially if your product is sugar free.
Overall, I’d have to say that the product lived up to its billing. And that’s pretty much what you’d expect from a simple product like a relaxation shot!
