I have recently been trying out Sleep Well Milk which is supposed to help you get a good nights sleep!
*Disclaimer – the products mentioned were gifted for review purposes, all opinions are my own*
Sleep Well Milk is a milk drink that contains ingredients that can contribute to getting a better nights sleep.
The milk drink contains Jersey Milk which has 20% more calcium, more protein and a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals. It also contains natural honey and the magic ingredient which is valerian root.
Valerian root has been used for thousands of years to help people relax and get to sleep.
The drink comes in two flavours, vanilla which is the one that I am reviewing and also chocolate flavour.
You can choose to either drink it hot or cold and I liked having mine cold like a milkshake.
How did it taste?
The drink itself did taste nice and tastes almost like a creamy vanilla milkshake. I could taste all of the ingredients, the jersey milk is really creamy, there was a hint of honey and vanilla and I could also taste the valerian root on the first two sips which was a little off putting to begin with as it’s not something that I’m used to. It’s not a strong taste but it was definitely there. Once I got past the first few sips it was quite nice. I drank it 30 minutes before I planned to go to bed as per the instructions.
Did it help me sleep well?
I have to admit that I’m quite skeptical about products that aid sleep. I tried this 3 nights in a row to make it a fair test. The first night I went up to bed at 3am as I was binge watching tv so I was quite tired anyway. The next two nights I went to bed at 00:50 and 01:30 which is an improvement from 3am (I am a night owl) and I do think that it helped me relax before I went to bed which in turn let me drift off to sleep quicker. I can’t really comment on if it made me sleep longer as my two little girls wake me up early every morning!
Whilst I did enjoy it, I wouldn’t say it’s essential enough to add to my weekly food shop. I would like to have a pack to stash away in the cupboard (they have a decent shelf life) for when I’m wanting a little extra help to get to sleep.
Where can you purchase Sleep Well Milk Drink?
A pack of 3 x 200ml is £4.95 on their website with free postage and packaging in the UK. It’s also available from Sainsbury’s and Amazon.
