Frequently Asked Questions
Hibernate Sleep Formula
Hibernate is a potent combination of zinc orotate, magnesium citrate, vitamin D3, and an all-important micro-dose of melatonin. These nutrients are essential for healthy sleep regulation, and we want to make sure you have just the right amount. (Intense exercise, especially, depletes magnesium and zinc.)
Altogether, they help initiate the hormonal "sleep cascade" that leaves you feeling healthy, rested, and energetic when you start the day.
That's right, every night. Or at least until you feel like you don't need it anymore. We certainly take it every night ourselves!
This may be the best thing about Hibernate - the formula works cumulatively, and the effects are better the longer you take it. It isn't meant to be a quick fix, though MANY people love it their very first night. Our goal is to address the underlying causes of your sleep problems and improve your long-term health, wellness, and immunity.
The fact is, your brain needs specific ingredients to “make sleep.” Melatonin and magnesium are most important, but plenty of others are involved.
Unfortunately, TVs and phone screens prevent our brains from producing melatonin, and modern industry-farmed foods lack the other nutrients.
For example, half of US adults don't get enough magnesium. Older adults are more vulnerable to this problem. Women are at higher risk. And hard-training athletes tend to be in a chronic state of deprivation.
This is bad. Without magnesium, your brain can’t process GABA, a neurotransmitter that allows you to relax at night. No wonder no one can sleep.
Hibernate shores up these deficiencies. Also, by adding a micro-dose of melatonin, it kickstarts the natural processes that lead to sleep without causing restlessness or funky shallow-sleep dreaming.
In our experience, once you restore these vitamins and minerals to optimal levels with Hibernate, you’ll enjoy vastly improved sleep. Your body still does all the work. We just give your brain the tools it needs to engineer a great snooze.
No way! You've already got Hibernate's vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in in your body, just at suboptimal levels. Hibernate isn't a soporific drug. It helps you sleep in a natural way, so grogginess the next morning is almost impossible.
Although a number of customers argue that Hibernate helps beat hangovers, we don’t recommend you try this. Hibernate contains melatonin, which when combined with alcohol can affect your liver's ability to create certain enzymes. This could potentially cause increased drowsiness, dizziness, risk of falling or fainting, or trouble breathing. Instead, we recommend a strong multivitamin, a giant green juice, or big glass of water and chlorella. Trust us. You'll thank us in the morning.
No, only take the recommended dose - 3 capsules. Hibernate is carefully calibrated to provide an exact, wonderful, beautiful micro-dose of melatonin. Take more, and you risk getting the same groggy side effects and shallow sleep that cheap OTC melatonin gives you, and your stomach won't like it.
Our goal isn't to drug you into sleep. It's to transform you into an all-around healthy, natural sleeper.
No way! Hibernate doesn't sedate you with chemicals like sleeping pills or alcohol. Normal sleep drugs work by mimicking or blocking normal chemical processes in your brain. Hibernate only makes sure that your body has what it needs to fall asleep in a normal, natural way.
You may feel a sense of physical relaxation after taking Hibernate (hence why it's so popular for recovery among athletes). Many sexually active males also report increased "randiness" and ejaculate volume as a side effect. (Wives love it!) But when it comes to waking up in the morning, you should feel as natural and clear-headed as ever.
Absolutely! You may be thinking of the many sleep drugs that render users unconscious and inflict short-term amnesia. Hibernate doesn't do this at all! Hibernate is designed to help your body create normal, recuperative sleep, the kind in which most people wake easily to loud noises such as babies crying, alarms going off, or meteors crashing through the living room ceiling.
Oh man, Hibernate works wonders for jet lag! Even the gnarliest, 12-time zone, Japan-to-New York jet lag disappears in 3-4 nights.
30 in every bottle. Each serving is 3 capsules. However, people of a very low bodyweight (115lbs or less) may find that Hibernate works well for them with only 2 capsules. They're super lucky, as the laws of mathematics thus give them 45 servings in every bottle. For most people however, there are 30 servings of delicious sleep in every bottle.
This product hasn't been tested on children. It is not recommended for individuals under the age of 18.
No, Hibernate doesn't include GABA. We learned that optimized magnesium levels negates the need for excess synthetic amino acids floating around in your head. In fact, researchers have known for nearly 20 years that GABA receptors are regulated by the amount of serum magnesium present. Much as it does with melatonin, magnesium acts as an agonist for these GABA receptors and actually helps them work. In fact, they don’t seem to work well without it. Thus, many sleep problems likely aren’t related to GABA deficiency, but more likely magnesium deficiency.
