    Opinions on ALRI Lean Dreams...


    Has anyone tried this...

    I did last night for the first time with the samples from NP...

    took it by itself i have never woke up so many time in the middle of the night before... but i have to say im not tired right now and i feel really good... but i woke up at least 3 or 4 times... it does say promotes deep sleep on the package and i wasnt sleep walking

    any one have any better results...i have a few more samples so im going to keep trying for the next few days to see if it was just a one time deal.

    Got my samples as well, loved it. Well definately use it as well as Abyss and X-Dream. Figure using all three will help from building a tolerance.
    Also like to add 1-C to the mix!

    Lean Dreams worked well for me, but i also tried it with a gram of GABA. But i have taken GABA by itself before and never slept as deeply as with GABA + Lean Dreams. Its good....m'kay

    I was amazed how quickly it put me to sleep. Normally I'm one of those people who tosses and turns for an hour before they go to bed. However, I tried the sample I got, and was amazed. I felt so refreshed the next morning.

    Definitely going to be buying a bottle as soon as I get some cash.

    Thumbs up Lean Dreams Works Great!


    My wife and I have been using Lean Dreams for about 5 weeks now and really like it. I am very sensitive to sleep medicine and was very groggy the next morning after taking Tylenol PM . With Lean Dreams I go to sleep much quicker and do not wake up groggy at all. The only side effect we have noticed is having more vivid dreams once in a while that we were able to remember in great detail the next morning. My wife had one just last night.

    BTW, we are taking ALR's Tri-Lean products and are very happy with the results.

    Yea same here. Except it worked great for me @ 1 cap a night then when I bumped to 2 caps it made me feel awful. I woke up having to puke and was s h i t ing like a cocker spainial. It was bad because it took me like 7 days to figure out what it was.

    At 1cap a nite it thought it was good. Make sure to asses your tolderance.

    Really didn't notice anything from it! Woke up a little more frequently throughout the night (3-4 times) but that's about the only thing I noticed..

    I thought it was decent some nights I used it. However, melatonin gives me night terrors. Not nightmares... night 'terrors'. Big difference.

    i got my sample packs from the olympia expo and im pretty sure there were three caps. i could be wrong but whatever. i think everyone should start with 1 cap to assess (i think thats how u spell it) tolerance.

    Yeah, it works really well with some people... I mean... I will start supplementing with it when I'm older due to the fact that melatonin regulates our body-aging clock as well as circadian rythms... But when I take melatonin, during the transition phase from subconscious to a conscious waking state, it feels like I'm in suspended animation while horrifying images are flashing in front of me.
    For example, one night I was 'waking' and I couldn't move and I saw a large snake dangling from my ceiling fan right above my head and it snapped at me as if it were going to attack. I felt a spasm shoot down my spine and then I was able to move, so I sprung to my feet and was VERY combative (fight or flight) yelling, "where you at you motherf*er!"

    An episode would happen like this or sometimes worse whenever I'd wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning.

    One night I saw someone who appeared to be robbing my bedroom and he, or 'it', was wearing a hood... then it turned to me and had no face. Yeah.... no more melatonin for me for a while!

    Hmmm... good question. I don't recall. I am enjoying my new sleep aid much better though. I used to never be able to get good sleep with a girlfriend in the bed, but no one ever got hurt.

    Yeah man, the night terrors were too much.

    What's going on with that avatar? This sounds kinda odd, but the people with those awesomely beautiful female avatars really make me melt.

    I know that "Melatonin Feeling"


    Hey FOG,
    I was searching for some sleep advice and stumbled on your post about melatonin and your "night terrors". I was LMAO because I know EXACTLY what you meant and I knew you weren't joking or exaggerating. I was having alot of sleep issues and wanted to get off Lunesta so my doc prescribed liquid melatonin (supposedly more effective/powerful than the pills). The script said take 3-6 drops before bed. Of course the first night I went ahead and took 10 drops thinking it couldn't be as powerful as Lunesta. Well I had the 3 worst nightmares - night "terrors" as you correctly desribed them - that I EVER had ALL IN THE SAME NIGHT. So vivid and terrifying that I can still clearly recall each one today. My wife said I was literally screaming in the night. I believe I must have run into the same "it" you spoke of in your own night terrors.
    I locked up that melatonin for a long time. Today I find that a little Relora throughout the day and one cap of Lean Dreams plus 2-3 drops of melatonin at night and I can sleep through a huricane and have "nice" dreams.
    The CIA can forget about waterboarding. All they have to do is use 10 drops of liquid melatonin and the terrorists will be screaming for mercy.

    I have used this and I have more vivid dreams but not night terrors. My problem is even with 1 cap I still wake up groggy. However I also wake up with a flatter stomach as I have cortisol issues.

    Love it, works better as a sleep inducer than phenibut for me, since no 'hangover' for me (like pheni gives me).

    The Lean Dreams is fine. It's using too much melatonin that takes you to the Land of Night Terror.

    I like ALRi's Lean Dreams and more so their Tri_lean system. I used it precontest for 12 weeks and dropped 47lbs. Went from 30% BF to 4%. Anyway, your dreams are more geared to what you have for stress in your actual life. You must worry alot and it comes out in your dreams.

    Melatonin and Lean Dreams help you sleep deeper into the phases to get better rest and induce for Gh production naturally. I would suggest maybe taking it a little earlier before bed which may help with the groggyness or go to sleep earlier if possible.

    my brother has been using it for a few weeks now and he loves it, he said he hasn't woke up in the middle of the night at all, always good deep sleep, and he said all the dreams he remembers are "good" ones. hes even looking a little leaner.

    Well it has more than just some melatonin in it I believe. I don't have the bottle in front of me since I'm not using it but I was pretty sure it had a lot of ingredients to induce fat burning and carb craving during the night. I bought the whole Tri-Lean system for just under $80 and I got a bottle of their Thyroid X with it so cost wise I would buy the whole kit

I bought the whole Tri-Lean system for just under $80 and I got a bottle of their Thyroid X with it so cost wise I would buy the whole kit
    My point was that it didn't have anymore impact on sleep quality for me than 3mg melatonin alone and if you're expecting something that helps you sleep you'll more than lilkely be disappointed Other feedback on this seems to fall in the negative,regarding sleep specifically,a couple threads on mindandmuscle.net show this.

    Oh I understand where you are coming from. I actually got some 5mg Melatonin from Natrol the other day. Works well

    Blade,
    How right you are. One of my 3 daughters suffers from cystic fibrosis, an incurable and life shortening lung disease. I worry all the time. Sleep has come very hard for me over the past few years. Last year my family doctor prescribed Lunesta and Xanax and I got addicted (in that I couldn't sleep unless I took one or the other). Since then I have been searching for "natural" sleep remedies to get off having to take a Lunesta or Xanax before bed. (BTW, my new HRT doc says Lunesta is worse than Xanax when it comes to T issues).
    Anyway, I found that taking Relora throughout the day plus 2 caps of Lean Dreams and a little extra melatonin at night works well for me (my HRT doc has prescribed the liquid melatonin drops). However, the times I couldn't fall asleep and took even more melatonin (over 6mg) created the "night terrors" that Force of Green referred to earlier in this thread. Thus my theory that too much melatonin can bring on night terrors (especially if you're "predisposed" with stress as you correctly point out).
