My husband and I had took Xanthone Plus, one capsule about an hour before going to sleep. I noticed that we both felt sleepy early, although we would usually sleep late, like after midnight. In my case, I work mostly when the kids are asleep, so I would stay awake until about 2-3am.
But with Xanthone Plus, it is hard to stay awake. I really needed to hit the sack. And, I slept like a log over night. I didn’t even wake up to pee.
Problem with me was that, because of my constant lack of sleep, I felt that I needed more sleep with Xanthone Plus. I guess it is the supplement’s way of telling my body that I needed more rest. I think this is especially great for those with insomnia. Just make sure you empty your bladder before you hit the sack because you will likely sleep through the night.
