Dual-Release Stress, Sleep & Recovery Support*

Built By Science. Driven By Obsession. Elevated Through Innovation.
If it's on our labels, then it's in our bottles. Rest, sleep and wake ready to train.
Proven Ingredients. Proven Doses. Real Science. Real Results.

Anabolic Sleep strives to produce recuperative, regenerating sleep. Training regimens can be grueling, and the process of rest and recovery should be approached with just as much attention, so that subjects can awake prepared mentally and physically to return to work, every single day.

  • POWER DOWN: Clinically dosed ingredients are shown to support relaxation and a healthy stress response.
  • RESTFUL SLEEP: Clinically studied ingredients, at efficacious doses, allow subjects to sleep just as intensely as they work.
  • RECUPERATIVE SUPPORT: Ingredients support comfort, a healthy inflammatory response and an anabolic environment.
Anabolic Sleep contains a customized blend of immediate and sustained release ingredients to help subjects unwind, check out and achieve the most restful and recuperative sleep, in order to face tomorrow’s punishment.
  • This unique formula features an extended-release Melatonin layer that has been designed to release over several hours for sustained support for restful sleep.
  • KSM-66 Ashwagandha supports healthy cortisol levels and the body’s natural ability to maintain a healthy stress response and an anabolic environment by supporting healthy testosterone levels.
  • Suntheanine promotes a sense of relaxation to cope with the stress of overwork and fatigue.
  • Exclusive Levagen Palmitic Acid Monoethanolamide supports comfort and a healthy anti-inflammatory response.
  • Collectively, this formula is scientifically designed with clinically studied ingredients to take the work out of winding down to a restful and restorative night’s sleep.

Great sustained sleep aid!
This is a good sleep aid, i had a habit of waking up in the middle of the night and would not be able to get back to sleep. This resolved that issue, even if I wake up I am able to go right back to sleep. At 220 lbs. I do need to take a double serving to get the desired results.

My Sleep Miracle Pill
This product is amazing, my life saver miracle pill. 1St off I have to take 4 a night but worth it. I habe recommended this to friends, family, co-workers they are 5 stars HAPPY too. GNC employee gave me heads up to play with dosagesee what work before giving up. He told me he uses it too. I tried 2 night 2 days then 3 for 2 days then 4 for 2 days. 4 makes me sleep been 1 yr now. Have sleeping issue 15 yrs tried every single prescription sleep aid none worked. So only tip for u is do same above find ur right dosage. Have to take it on empty stomach to get full effect. I do it 2 hours after eating. I wait 30 min off bed. I do wake up 2 or 3 times but I'm back asleep in 5 min. I'm not groggy and I never set an alarm clock anymore. I wake up 9-10 hrs wide awake.

Really good product
Works like a charm. For someone who is really restless when trying to fall a sleep this product is a miracle. It takes about an hour before it fully kicks in so I take it at 9 if I wanted to fall asleep by 10:15 or so. Really helps you get into the mental mood for sleeping and helps you drift off. It's gentle and calming. Unlike other sleep meds I've never felt more refreshed in the morning. It's been a long time since I've woken up and felt like "wow, that was a solid nights sleep" and been able to hop right out from under the covers. Before I'd end up spending half an hour lying in bed before I got out feeling just as groggy as when I went to bed.

In addition to sleep this product has done a great job of helping me manage my stress and anxiety throughout the day.

All of this is of course great for weight lifting and building muscle. Better sleep means more time for muscle recovery and less stress during the day stops your body from breaking down gains.

Works well for a 59-year old hockey coach
I coach high school hockey, and our practices run until nearly 11pm. I'm a very demonstrative coach, and being 59 years old, I'm a little wound up by the time I get home. This product has really done well in my getting to sleep fast and soundly through the night. As well, my energy level for my morning exercise program is much better. Has helped with solid energy through the day, too. I'd highly recommend.

Not a must have, but it helps
So, I'm the kind of person that falls asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. The more intense my activity for the day, the quicker I fall asleep. I bought this and didn't really find the need to use it. Anyway, when there were times I couldn't fall asleep -- working out too close to bedtime, wired, jittery, whatever -- this helps you unwind and chill out a bit. I wouldn't say it "makes" you fall asleep, but it helps. Take 2 of these, pop on the TV or read a book, and you are calm and sleepy!

Does this work for everyone???
The answer is no. Before you get this product you have to ask yourself a few questions the the sales Rep won't ask you. "How does this fit into my workout routine (time of day)?" What diet are you currently on? Bottom line is do your research and put into the work with a proper diet and workout plan before you buy pills and shakes my friend. I started with a daily workout and diet (keto) snd this stuff works for me, but it may not work for you. Make sure you put in work before you swipe your card. Good luck #YouCanAlwaysTakeItBack

Write a review they ask, how about you get the item off back-order and ship it? Maybe include an order status link in that email so I can check up on it? Get it together people.
