What is NuLiv Lifestyle SleepWell Supplement?
NuLiv Lifestyle SleepWell Supplement is a sleep aid that differs from other over-the-counter daily sleep supplements in that it is not intended as a solution for insomnia or sleeplessness. The product is not marketed to help users get to sleep faster: the manufacturer’s website states plainly that it may take up to two weeks before users notice an improvement in their sleep. The manufacturer markets the product as creating a more optimal balance of sleep-related hormones without causing drowsiness.
NuLiv SleepWell Supplement contains the following active ingredients:
- L-Theanine – 200mg
- Melatonin – 600mcg
- 5-HTP – 50mg
- Proprietary SleepWell Complex – 750mg
The ingredients of the proprietary formula include:
- Angelica sinensis extract (dong quai root)
- Lemon balm
- Polygala tenuifolia Willd. (yuan zhi herb)
- Valerian extract
- WulinshenPrime (Xylaria nigripes; mycelia fungus)
- Zizyphus jujube Mill var. spinose Hu (jujube red date)
The rest of the tablet is comprised of veggie capsule, cellulose, magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide.
The manufacturer’s website instructs users to take 2-4 capsules, a half-hour to an hour before sleeping, with water. The product is not meant to be taken by children or women who are nursing or pregnant. The manufacturer instructs people taking prescription medication to contact a doctor before use for possible interactions.
NuLiv Lifestyle SleepWell Supplement comes in three different packages marketed as a 1, 3, and 6-month supply of the product. However, as each individual bottle comes with 60 capsules and the recommended dose is between 2 and 4 capsules per day, the 1-month supply would only last 15 days if 4 capsules were taken per day. Not including tax and shipping (shipping is an additional $3.95 regardless of order size for orders inside the US), one bottle is $29.99, three bottles is $59.98, and six bottles is $114.95.
The most expensive option is to buy a one-month supply and take 4 tablets daily – this works out to $2.00 per day. The least expensive option is to buy the six-month supply and take 2 tablets per day – this works out to $0.64 per day. When we checked, the one-month supply was also available on Amazon for $20.99 + $3.45 shipping.
Possible Side Effects
The manufacturer’s website says that because of the demonstrated safety of the ingredients and the comparatively low doses, there is no cause for concern for any negative side effects. The product is also maintained to be non-habit forming. Without dosages listed for individual ingredients, it is difficult for us to believe this claim without reservation, especially with the possibility of taking 4 tablets in a day and ingesting a total of 3000mg of the proprietary formula.
NuLiv Lifestyle SleepWell comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
NuLiv Lifestyle SleepWell Supplement is a daily sleep supplement that appears to contain only natural ingredients. The product has no consumer reviews listed on the manufacturer’s website and no Amazon reviews, so it is impossible to draw any conclusions based on the experience of users.
Based on our review, NuLiv Lifestyle’s product doesn’t contain any significant red flags, and should be compared against other products. As is the case with all proprietary formulas, it would be better for us and for the consumer to know the exact dosages they are receiving of the active ingredients, especially melatonin, in this case. If it is possible to ingest 3000mg of the proprietary formula per day and still remain within the recommended dose of 2-4 tablets per day, there is the potential to have interactions with individual ingredients. Furthermore, the gimmicky pricing options, lack of reviews, and limited availability all restrain our ability to recommend this product fully.
