Sleep is a critical component to help athletes recover and adapt from the intense physical demands of training and competition. Athletes in both endurance and team sports often report sub-optimal durations of sleep as well as difficulty with actually getting to sleep in the first instance, the latter is especially the case when training or competition is performed late in the evening.
Athletes also report that their sleep quality is severely compromised during times of intense travel, training and competition schedules as can often be the case with training camps and repeated days and weeks of competition. In relation to physical and mental performance, consecutive days of sleep restriction can be catastrophic for performance given that it increases susceptibility to illness and impairs decision making, muscle strength and endurance exercise performance. With all this in mind, SLEEP PLUS Juice is formulated with a blend of ingredients (including carbohydrate, tryptophan, glycine, theanine, magnesium and tart cherry) to help promote feelings of relaxation and sleepiness, reduce the time taken to fall asleep, increase overall sleep duration and ultimately, reduce feelings of fatigue upon waking on the subsequent morning.

Honestly, apart from the concentrated Tart cherry juice (Tart cherry juice are naturally rich in melatonin, a hormone responsible for sleepiness) there's little else talk about in these, BUT they do seem to work. When I need to, I take one about 30 mins before bed time, in half a glass of hot but drinkable water and I was a little sceptical at first, they do work for me.
The taste isn't very nice, like the most bitter parts of both apple and blackcurrant together, and I can't say I've seen any change in my sleep quality or physical recovery after having had them.
Absolutely unreal! After a hard workout in the day and having one of these before bed you wake up feeling good as new!! I highly recommend
I wish it tasted like it says but it has never tasted like any apple & blackcurrant that I have ever tasted
Taste is quite refreshing. Did NOTHING for my sleep pattern (both subjectively and objectively via Garmin sleep tracker) or how I felt the next day (after using it consistently for 2 weeks) but did make me drink more before bed so possibly hydration improved.
Does the trick for me. I struggle sleeping after hard workouts. With this, I am out for the count within the hour then sleep right through. Strong taste of tart cherry juice so I need to neck it with a small cup of warm water, but still worth it.
Too soo to say if it makes a difference, it’s certainly an acquired taste !
It’s tastes awful 🤮
Box of Sleep Plus arrived promptly & tried it that night. I've worked hard to improve my sleep duration and quality - and Sleep Plus promised to further help that. And it did. The first night felt like a very deep sleep (I've just bought a sleep tracker so can use that to compare some data for it) and subsequent nights less heavy, but woke refreshed. I won't use all the time, but a good back up post big training sessions / ahead of a big day.
very sweet taste, but works well
It had no definite improvement on my sleep.
It was never delivered. Got as far as Hermes distribution yard in Bridgewater never to be seen again. SIS did give me a very prompt refund.
I ama big fan of SIS products but this one is dreadful. Apart from the flavour is unusual it had no effect on my sleep pattern nor did I feel refreshed in the morning. I tested it on my wife who felt sick after she took a sachet. Was this product tested on humans? Happy to hear from SIS on my comment on this product.
Taste description said Tart and it was ! Not for me in a cold drink - but mixed with yoghurt which was ok - Garmin did register a slight improvement in deep sleep which was ok, but at the end of a long shift making up a batch of yoghurt & mix was a bit of a pain - glad I tried but didn’t work for me
My new favorite product! Works very well!
Didn’t seem to have any effect
Really seems to help with sleep. After trying Sleep Plus for three weeks my sleep efficiency has improved by about 10% with less disturbances and longer deep sleep. Certainly worth trying if you want to improve sleep and recovery
