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.)
I wish it were a few less capsules to take, but 4 isn't so bad. I also felt relaxed and noticed improved sleep with better dream recall when I only took 3.
Sleep through the whole night
I loved it. I can get deep sleep and wake up all rested and energized. It doesn't work right away. You have to take it couple of nights before it kicks in.
So I’m new to the product but I have to say the ingredients put into these pills just may be the magic formula for good sleep.
Works Great!! Recharged and refueled for whatever the day brings.
