kirsten e. reviewed Qualia Night
NIGHT caused me to sleep slightly longer (maybe 7-8 hrs, instead of 5-6 hrs), and feel more rested on waking. But much more interestingly, I started DREAMING again! Or rather, recalling my dreams again (assuming REM still produces them, either way). My recall stopped a few years ago, during stressful life-circumstances. I suspect recall is positively correlated with brain function. Specifically: I suspect that dream-loss happens when the Default Mode Network, the strategizing, problem-solving "tool-using mind", becomes over-active. (Obviously the DMN is essential, but letting it habitually dominate distracts from mindfulness and connectedness.) I suspect stress made my DMN kick in as soon as I awoke, it's noisy monkey-mind drowning out my dream-recall. So, dreaming again implies that my DMN has stepped back a bit-- always a good thing! Plus, I value dreams. Even thought their content is probaly random residua from the brain's nightly "clean and discard" process, still, I think the NARRATIVES we weave from those random scraps are very revealing. Like art, or theater. (E.g. my dreams seem to "try on" different emotions or actions or understandings; possibly that helps simplify my waking life). Regardless, I'd rather wake up in a calm intuitive state, than in a worry-dominated monkey-mind state. I do a lot of brain hacking, and don't always have clear results. But this formula apparently facilitated something; maybe supported parasympathetic, boosted GABA, or...?? I was already previously taking some of the ingredients: either I benefitted from upping those, or I benefitted from adding the novel ones. Either way, RECOMMENDED!! (FIY: been taking Mind and Eternus approx 1 year.)
Prepared for Better Sleep
This product provided me with better sleep ability and fewer waking moments throughout the night. It allowed me to relax earlier and be more prepared for sleep when it was time. It improved my rem and deep sleep. I experienced no side-effects while taking this product.
Better than Microdosing
I've been throwing together at-home Nootropic concoctions for years now (lions mane, psilocybin, caffeine, l theanine, etc) and these folks have got me completely beat!
Really nice product
If you are struggling with sleep this product is going to help
