Many people use prescribed medication to help them sleep, but the true effectiveness and side effects of that route are still questionable. Some concerns are dependency and an increased risk of developing diseases. What then should someone do who truly struggles to sleep or needs to be refreshed and ready for work after many hours of traveling? The alternative is an all-natural sleeping aid, like Elixir Pure’s Sleep Elixir. This product claims to promote a very deep sleep that allows you to wake up feeling rested, refreshed and not drowsy. Along with that it also claims to reset your sleeping cycle and calm your nervous system. Learn more about this product from our review below.
- Vitamin B6
- Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
- Valerian root extract
- Chamomile Flower extract
All these ingredients are natural, with no artificial flavorings and colorants, and should do the body no harm, taken in the right doses. It is also free of gluten, lactose, soy and GMO ingredients. We do however have one concern, the very high doses of Vitamin B6 (588% of the daily recommendations). In the short-term Vitamin B6 should not produce any side effects, but in the long term, may cause nerve damage, photosensitivity and skin lesions.
The manufacturers recommend taking 2 capsules before bedtime, or during stressful times.
Possible Side Effects
This product lists no specific side effects but heeds caution in the following circumstances: If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 18 years old or have a known medical condition and are on prescription drugs it is advisable to consult your doctor before using it. They also advise not to drive, drink alcohol or operate heavy machinery while using the product. As mentioned before, we question whether or not side effects may occur with long-term use, with such a high daily dose of vitamin B6.

Conclusion of Our Sleep Elixir Review
The product has numerous positive reviews from customers, claiming that it delivers on its promise of a better night’s sleep. Sleep Elixir only contains natural ingredients, no added colorants, flavorings and allergens and has a manufacturer’s money-back guarantee, all of which are big plus points. We do however caution you to do more thorough research and consider consulting your physician, before consuming such high amounts of vitamin B6, especially when using the product over a long period of time.
