Along with training and diet sleep is one of the foundational pillars on which any successful bodybuilding program rests. Slack in this area just a little bit, and progress will be compromised. This is not surprising, as sleep is the time during which the body recovers from the previous day’s stress and reenergizes for the day to come, but what is surprising is the level of inattention it usually receives. With such a profound influence on the body’s ability to recover and grow, the uninitiated might assume that bodybuilders routinely place special emphasis on this aspect of their program. However, this is rarely the case. Unlike training and nutrition, in which most of us agonize over every little detail, sleep is generally given short shrift, with little attention paid to quantity and even less given to quality.

Mitragyna Speciosa one of the most interesting and effective compounds in this product, otherwise known as kratom. If you haven’t yet heard of this stuff, chances are you will soon, as it has made waves all around the world as an opiate alternative. Did I just say an opiate alternative? Yes I did, but unlike traditional opiates, kratom provides all of the benefits without the harsh side effects typically associated with this class of drugs. That sounds cool enough, but what exactly is Kratom?

Like many other psychoactive plants, kratom grows naturally in Asia and the Indo-Pacific region where it has been in use by natives for thousands of years. While traditional opiates are usually comprised of a single active compound, which is responsible for providing all of its effects, kratom is a complex drug-plant, containing dozens of active alkaloids. Of these, scientists believe that kratom’s effects are derived from 3 primary alkaloids, with 7-hydroxymitragynine bearing the greatest similarity to traditional opiates. However, kratom’s alkaloids differ from morphine-based compounds in terms of molecular structure, preventing them from fully attaching to opiate receptors.

Due to this partial attachment, the alkaloids within kratom are defined as partial opiate agonists, but make no mistake about it, these alkaloids are still potent stimulators of the opiate receptor. In fact, when compared on a mg per mg basis, 7-hydroxymitragynine was shown to be 17X more potent than morphine in terms of analgesic potency, but keep in mind that kratom is the sum total of all of its alkaloids, each of which have their own unique effects on the body. Many of these even have distinct health benefits.

With such a close similarity to traditional opiates, some of you may be wondering about Kratom’s addiction potential, but don’t worry. While heavy, extended use of isolated kratom alkaloids have been shown to result in dependence, real-world experience has shown that when kratom is consumed in its entirety (all of its natural alkaloids present), physical dependence is greatly reduced in comparison to traditional opiates and rarely occurs to any serious degree.

GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid), is a glutamate derived amino acid with neurotransmitter activity. Responsible for regulating brain activity, GABA reduces excitation by reducing the rate of neuron firing. This has a calming, anti-anxiolytic effect, allowing the individual to reach and maintain a sleep state more easily.

Minimizing the occurrence of waking events is a significant factor in determining sleep quality. When we fall asleep, the body moves through the four stages of sleep in order, beginning with Stage 1 and working its way up to Stage 4 before starting over again. In the event of a wake-up, the sleep cycle is disrupted, causing the bodybuilder to start over again from Stage 1 after re-entering sleep. In short, the body is incapable of resuming its previous place in the sleep cycle after being awoken. The message here is simple—more broken sleep cycles results in fewer completed sleep cycles, and this doesn’t bode well for sleep quality.

Many drugs known for their sedating, anti-anxiolytic effects, such as alcohol, marijuana, and tranquilizers, work by increasing levels of GABA in the brain, while benzodiazepines, such as valium and xanax, work directly on the GABA receptors. Either way, all of these drugs achieve their affects via interaction with GABA. Knowing this, why even bother using these drugs when pure GABA is readily available? In short, GABA has trouble passing the blood-brain barrier, making it less potent than many pharmaceutical preparations, but this is probably a good thing, as these drugs are often so strong that they leave the user with a hang-over effect the following morning.

Magnesium. Playing a supporting role, magnesium is essential for GABA activity, as well as enhancing the sensitivity of GABA on nerve receptors. Clinically, magnesium has been shown to increase overall sleep time and reduce bouts of wakefulness, while its muscle relaxant effect helps prime the body for sleep. Involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions, it has been estimated that more than 50% of Americans are deficient in this key mineral, making supplementation/diet manipulation a good idea for the majority.

Melatonin, another classic standby. Sleep regulation is governed by many different factors, one of which is exposure to day light. Light influences the release of many different chemicals and hormones within the body, preparing us to either wake up or go to sleep. Melatonin is one such hormone and is produced by the pineal gland; a tiny pea-sized gland located in the center of the brain. Our biology is set up so that when the sun’s rays (or in most cases, the houselights) begin to darken, the pineal gland is stimulated to release melatonin, the job of which is to make us feel sleepy.

The body continues producing melatonin in response to darkness all night long, helping us stay asleep. Melatonin release is also affected by our circadian rhythms, which is why it is frequently used as a means of normalizing new sleep schedules in cases of jet lag. However, any deviation from our normal sleep schedule can cause a disruption in the release of this sleep hormone.

In addition to normalizing our circadian rhythms, melatonin supplementation can also help us stay asleep in the face of irregular sleep schedules and unwanted light exposure by maintaining elevated melatonin levels throughout the night. While the band-aid approach certainly isn’t ideal, it is definitely better than nothing. Furthermore, melatonin production diminishes with age, making it more and more difficult to archive a good night’s rest as the years go by, regardless of how regular one’s sleep schedule may be.

Phellodendron, while lacking name recognition in the states, is a well known herb in traditional Chinese medicine. This herb contains a couple dozen different active constituents, but we will concern ourselves with just a few of these. While most of you will recognize the following as a metformin substitute, berberine can also be used to improve sleep quality through blood sugar regulation.

We’ve all heard the saying “don’t eat before you sleep”. While his might not be the best advice for a growing bodybuilder, the recommendation does have scientific backing, at least from a health standpoint. This is because elevated nighttime blood sugar has a multitude of negative effects on the body, one of which is diminished sleep quality; a fact that many diabetics can attest to. Berberine helps overcome this by increasing insulin sensitivity, thereby allowing the body to more easily remove glucose from the bloodstream as we sleep. Elevated blood sugar levels also impair growth hormone release; a negative side effect according to any bodybuilder. As a side benefit, berberine has antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and immune enhancing properties.

Phellodendron also contains palmatine, which possesses sedative effects. This protoberberine alkaloid exerts its actions through multiple mechanisms. Decreased dopamine levels, increased 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine) concentrations, and the enhancement of 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) induced hypomotility all work together to promote a calming effect.

When combined with 5-HTP (also included in Dream N’ Grow) this effect is further enhanced. 5-HTP is the immediate nutrient precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which converts directly into serotonin in the brain. As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, it has the opposite effect of excitatory neurotransmitters like dopamine and noradrenalin, placing the user in a relaxed, but emotionally uplifted state. With positive affects on mood and the ability to slow brain activity, it is a perfect addition to any sleep formula. Not surprisingly, 5-HTP is often used as a remedy for insomnia, anxiety, and mood enhancement.

5-HTP is very similar to the category of anti-depressant drugs known as S.S.R.I’s, as both produce their effects by increasing serotonin availability in the brain, but they do so through 2 different mechanisms. Whereas S.S.R.I’s work primarily by helping the brain reuse serotonin which is already present, 5-HTP helps manufacture more serotonin through biological synthesis. In some studies 5-HTP was shown to work as well as prescription anti-depressants for alleviating depression, but without any of the serious side effects that frequently plague this category of script drugs.

With the above combination of compounds providing such a potent sleep enhancing effect, the formula is balanced out with Mucuna Pruiens; a rich source of the dopamine precursor, L-dopa. With dopamine having stimulating effects, one might wonder why Mucuna Pruiens was chosen to be part of this all-star cast. The reason for its inclusion was simple—it drastically increases growth hormone production. First, it is important to realize that the sedating and mood enhancing effects of this formula is so potent, that the addition of L-dopa does not diminish its sleep inducing effects. Second, with growth hormone playing such an important role in a bodybuilder’s program, optimizing production just seemed like common sense.

Lastly, we have L-theanine which is categorized as a mild stress reducer, this amino acid was added as a finishing touch. It promotes a relaxed mental state without sedation, placing the mind and body at ease in preparation for sleep. Some researchers have concluded that L-theanine’s anti-stress effects are generated by inhibiting the excitation of cortical neurons.

    Very good product! After testing different products dedicated to sleep and having often disappointed I discovered Dream-n-Grow . And it’s not a vulgar placebo! I use it for about a decade and when I take it I sleep like a baby :)! Take Dream-n-Grow 25 minutes to 40 minutes before you go to bed and you will really know a deep sleep. Also, it is easier to take than some powdered products. A single capsule is already very powerful in terms of effect. Also, this does not require you to drink too much water before you go to bed. Surprisingly, Dream-n-Grow is a very good solution if you have sleep problems and is effective.

    This product is great! I dealt with insomnia for 15 years and tried all kinds of various sleep aids and I found that none of them were as effective as dream n grow. With this product all I do is take 2 capsules and 30 -45 minutes later I’m ready to go to sleep. When I say sleep I mean sleep for 7 -8 hrs like a baby I totally recommend this product especially if you deal with the same sleep disorder as I do.

  7. Zack Jacob (verified owner)

    I struggle to sleep sometimes because of my irregular work schedule. With dream and grow I notice the difference in how fast I fall asleep and I get better quality sleep. Less waking up during the night and I feel more recovered from my workouts after getting better quality sleep.

  8. Daniel (verified owner)

    Amazing. I sleep like a baby on this stuff. Since I can see the results for this product so plainly, it gives me faith that their other products, like Max Defense and Advanced Cycle Support also work.

    Over the years I’ve suffered with staying asleep through the night, like many of you guys I’ve tried everything. I’m leaving this review simply because Dream and Grow works kicks ass. I combine 1 cap with 1 CBD gummy and I sleep like a hibernating bear straight through, Thanks IML

  13. ordawg1 (verified owner)

    I have severe problems with going to sleep and staying asleep. This by far is the best product I have ever used for sleep !! Also told a few family members and they are also loving it -Thanks Guys

  14. Vision (verified owner)

    A breath of fresh air. After years of being on script meds for sleep, sleep has became a struggle and far and few in between. I’m currently on my 2nd bottle of “Dream N Grow”. It has given me the opportunity to fall asleep and stay asleep once again. This is a must have when on a hard push with your training, when recovery is a must. If you are focused on eating, sleeping and training, this is for you. Thank you IML for getting me through difficult times.

  15. rlm1951 (verified owner)

    Great product. The older I got, the harder it was to fall asleep. I’m very thankful I found this product.

  16. Denyse Fitzgerald (verified owner)

    Love this product! I was skeptical to say the least as i had tried everything under the sun to help me sleep. From the very first night using Dream n Grow I have been falling asleep quickly and staying asleep through the night.
    There are no hang over effects in the morning. Just wake up feeling rested and refreshed.
    I will never be without this product. Thank you!
