“I can’t sleep with this thing!”
Whether you struggle with the claustrophobia of a CPAP machine to treat obstructive sleep apnea or you’re one of the countless Americans who simply face the challenge of falling and staying asleep each night, the frustration and exasperation are real—and exhausting.
The issue is also very common—especially with older adults, with one-third of those 65 and older taking some type of sleep aid on a regular basis. And the pandemic has only exacerbated the problem: The American Academy of Sleep Medicine found that 56% of all adults have trouble falling or staying asleep—and suffer from low-quality sleep overall.
One sleep specialist and dentist is hoping to change that. Founder of Rad Health, Dr. Dar Radfar struggled with sleep issues himself—even falling asleep at the wheel and crashing into a tree due to sleep apnea. The experience compelled him to create products that could help others overcome their sleep and snoring issues, to finally achieve that elusive solid night of rest.
RAD ZZZ is an all-natural sleep supplement that promises to help users fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, all while reducing sleep apnea and snoring (and even possibly helping to promote weight loss). The supplement contains a mix of some sleep-friendly ingredients, including:
- L-tryptophan (yes, the same amino acid in your Thanksgiving turkey that makes you sleepy)
- L-theanine (believed to help the brain enter the first stage of NREM sleep)
- Valerian root (an herb long used for its sedative properties)
- Cysteine (a natural expectorant that can clear mucus from breathing passages)
- Melatonin (a supplement of a natural hormone in the body that helps the body enter the sleep cycle)
Andrew Nagy lives in the St. Louis area and has endured obstructive sleep apnea for nearly two decades. After his continued struggles with his own CPAP machine, he decided to explore some alternatives.
“A CPAP machine is the best way to keep my sleep from being interrupted, but even when using it I tend to toss and turn and come out of sleep a fair bit,” he said. “Melatonin helps as does the occasional Benadryl, but I haven’t found anything that consistently keeps me under for as long as I’d like.”
He decided to try RAD ZZZ to see how it might help both the quantity and quality of his sleep.
“The first night I tried it, I took only one pill,” he said. “Falling asleep, my quality of sleep, my wake time—all were similar to recent experiences. The next night I took two, and I definitely noticed I stayed asleep better and was able to sleep in longer. I’ll continue taking these nightly … this supplement did make a difference, especially when I wanted to sleep in.”
“I’ve had insomnia for over 20 years, tried all types of natural supplements and prescription medications that had horrible side effects like sleepwalking or didn’t work at all,” writes Brittany Washington. “RAD ZZZ has been the most effective treatment for insomnia … I feel calmer, fall asleep faster and sleep through the night with my CPAP.”
