I’ve reviewed several dozen sleep supplements for this site (and for my personal benefit, let’s be real), so it’s a bit surprising I haven’t gotten to one of the Internet’s best-reviewed blends yet. Intra Naturals’ LUNA Sleep Aid is one of the most talked about, broad-ranging sleep and relaxation blends on the market. It’s got a lot of very popular, very common sleep-boosting ingredients, and while the combination isn’t all that surprising, I wasn’t going to assume anything — positive or otherwise — before giving it a fair test.
Read below to see what I found out!
LUNA is made with natural and scientifically backed ingredients which gently ease you to sleep at night time, without any of the uncomfortable and serious side effects of prescription medications. It is also non-habit forming which means you can stop taking it at any time and not experience any dependencies in order to sleep each night.
Take 1 to 2 capsules 30 to 60 minutes before bed with 8 ounces of water or as directed by your health care professional.
Other ingredients: Hypromellose (capsule), brown rice bran powder.
Timing LUNA was pretty easy, as it fit right along with what I’m used to as far as when to take most sleep supplements. I fell asleep quicker than normal and experienced solid nights of sleep when taking this supplement. However, my sleep wasn’t completely uninterrupted, and I did toss and turn a bit, though perhaps slightly less than when not supplementing for relaxation or sleep. While I was expecting — or hoping for — a wave of calm when taking Intra Naturals’ LUNA formula due to its very broad spectrum of ingredients, it didn’t affect my pre or post-sleep mood much at all. I did not, however, feel groggy the morning after taking this supplement despite its relatively large dose of melatonin (which will sometimes do that). However, individual tolerances to this and other ingredients will vary quite a bit.
LUNA by Intra Naturals has a very broad ingredient list, and it may be a great option for people who aren’t yet sure which compounds best aid their sleep. At the same time, it might also be overkill. Despite improving my overall sleep quality, it didn’t improve my mood or make me feel especially relaxed. I may recommend this to someone who’s new to sleep supplements and is still working to dial in their sleep routine and preferred ingredients.
