Ricky gets AMNES1A (unsponsored log)
I have gone through my fair share of sleep supplements and nighttime HGH support formulas over the years, which are for the most part overlapping categories of very similar ingredients and desired outcomes.
Here are some examples of what I have used:
USPlabs PowerFULL (not OG)
Applied Nutriceuticals HGH Up
Lecheek Mass HGH
RCCS Resurrect PM
There were a couple more as well, but they are not really worth mentioning. I have also tried isolated ingredients such as 5-HTP, L-tryptophan, GABA, Inositol, SNS Phenibut XT, and many strengths of melatonin (including time-release). May as well even throw MK-677 in there too which I was on for the past 5 months but have now stopped.
My favorite thus far has been IML Dream-N-Grow, and I was able to get the most longevity out of that one which was more than a year. I would have bought more, but I held off to give AMNES1A a run for its money. In the meantime, I have been using up my Crash which is fairly average IMO.....so I am definitely ready for some AMNES1A!
So why do I take these types of supplements? Mainly because I certainly have some degree of insomnia which used to be so bad that I was on prescriptions like Lunesta and Ambien. I had my fun with those years ago, and I have done well with natural alternatives ever since. For the past seven years, I have worked 12hr night shifts 3-4 times a week in a very stressful position, and it can be very hard to shut that off and attempt to sleep knowing that I have to get up very soon and do it all over again. Add in the fact that I am constantly flip-flopping my sleep schedule from days to nights which makes it nearly impossible to achieve any level of “sleep hygiene.” So Is AMNES1A by Olympus Labs going to deliver?
I can’t wait to find out and put some of these novel ingredients to the test. It literally needs to be delivered first, which I believe will be today
Until then, here is the product...

Just to give a baseline, last night I took 1 crash at approximately 10 PM and was able to stay awake until 2 AM checking out the latest on the forum and setting up this log. I was in bed the entire time though on my IPad with lights out, and usually I just drift off. That was not the case last night. I just woke up not too long ago, so I got just over 3 hours of sleep. Not very impressive, but this is actually worse than usual for a night sleeping session for me. The prior night I did one thing differently by adding 1 capsule of Phenibut XT and I slept for 7-8 hrs.
My AMNES1A should be coming in the mail later today, and I will be working 3 night shifts in a row. This means my next sleep session will take place during the day tomorrow morning, utilizing AMNES1A. This should be interesting...

Subbed. MK-677 is really the only thing I’ve ever used that improved sleep quality significantly. However, if I woke up while on it I was usually up for the day. I would feel extremely rested after 4-5 hours and crash after 8-10 hours. My biggest problem is turning off my brain and going to bed. Hopefully, Amnes1a will shine there. Looking forward to what you think.

Thank you to everyone for you interest and support!
Unfortunately, my package did not arrive today. I did not receive any tracking info so I was going off of my best guess. I usually get shipments from OL within two or three days it seems once it ships.
I am quite confident it will be here tomorrow, but I will most likely already be asleep after working tonight. Then again, I might still be awake...hence the reason why I bought the product.

Traditionally, it would do a fairly good job at knocking me out for a couple hours, but then I would wake up in a semi-state of consciousness and just lay there with a brain buzz type feeling (not the good kind). Essentially it would make my sleep worse, so I gave it up after trying everything from time release mcg dosing up to 3-5mg. The higher I went, the more it did not agree with me.
Therefore I have not attempted to buy it as an isolated supplement for years.
Given that I have had success with some blends that contain melatonin (particularly Dream-N-Grow), I know that it is an ingredient I can’t completely write off. I also like some of the health benefits it offers..
So here I am after my night shift; I got home at about 8:45 AM and was in bed sleeping by 9:30 AM after popping a PS Crash. Obviously, I just woke up a little bit ago, so I got just under 3 hrs mileage from that supplement. This is very common for me during a daytime sleep session attempt. I may fall back asleep again before I have to get up and start getting ready for work at 4:45 PM, but more often than not, I don’t. I can’t remember the the last time I woke up to my alarm to get ready for work...I am always up before that.
If AMNES1A can make me rely upon an alarm to wake up to be at work on time, I would consider it a huge success. I have completely forgotten what that is like..
I will post again today if I receive my AMNES1A...

I have some cheapish blackout curtains that don't really block out all the light and the perimeters allow even more light in. I really need to get on top of the better options that are available. I am sure that would make a difference.
Sorry to say, my AMNES1A never arrived yesterday
Definitely should be here Monday!

Have you read main ingredients ?
Valeriana and Melissa.
Amnes1a is a supplement that cost to much respect the same result obtained with main ingredients.
