What is Somnapure?
Somnapure is a natural sleep aid designed to help you fall asleep faster, improve the quality of your sleep, helping you wake up feeling refreshed. Made up of all natural herbs and extracts, it is available over the counter without a prescription, and promises no side effects and is not habit forming.
The fact of the matter is that it is hard to trust that any product can be entirely without side effects because that is just not really ever the case, although some can have a very low chance of side effects which is not that uncommon.
You may have originally learned about Somnapure from one of their heavily marketed TV spots:
The basis behind this product is the ingredients. Somnapure includes a potent variety of ingredients that have been used for centuries to promote healthy, natural sleep. The ingredients are as follows:
Melatonin -A naturally occurring compound that is secreted in the brain, melatonin has long been used to treat a number of ailments, including circadian rhythm disorders, headaches, mood disorder, and even cancer.
Somnapure contains 3 mg of melatonin, which places it on the higher end of the dose spectrum (1 – 3 mg is recommended).
L-Theanine -Commonly found in green tea, Theanine has been shown to help reduce stress levels as well as produce a calm and soothing effect. However, there has been no research to confirm these findings.
Valerian Root Extract -Valerian root has long been used to treat insomnia, and some have claimed it is a miracle drug. You can find valerian root in many different forms, including sprays, elixirs, even brownies. This is the primary ingredient in Somnapure.
Hops -Hops are actually the primary stabilizing agent in beer, but have also been shown to have the same effects as Valerian root.
Somnapure also includes Passion flower, Lemon Balm, and Chamomile Flower.
Their have been no clinical studies pertaining to the effectiveness of Somnapure alone, but there have been several concerning the ingredients.
Reviews of Somnapure
We searched through a number of websites to find reviews of Somnapure, and the results we found were mixed. It seems to have literally worked for about 50% of the people who took it, and the other 50% got little or no effects from it.
For example, on Amazon you’ll see that literally 51% of people rated it 5 stars, while the remaining 49% rated it 4 stars and below.
It seems to me that the vast majority of the negative reviews have more to do with the fact that they feel they’ve been scammed by the free trial of Somnapure, rather than the supplement simply not working. (more on this below)
The reviews on Youtube were generally positive, which you’ll note in the few I found below:
My Personal Results
The directions state that you should take 2 pills about 30 – 45 min. prior to bedtime. In my opinion, I think Somnapure actually does work very well.
I don’t typically suffer from insomnia, but like a lot of other people there are a few nights where I have trouble falling / staying asleep.
I only tried it on about 4 – 5 separate occasions, but for me it worked great.
I fell asleep quickly, stayed asleep for about 7 – 8 hours straight, and woke up feeling very refreshed.
The problem with a lot of these over the counter sleep aids is that typically they help you get to sleep, but then you wake up with sort of a hangover that seems to persist for most of the day.
This was not the case with Somnapure.
In fact, the only downside I would note was the smell.
It literally smells like shit, there’s really no other way to put it.
After a little bit of research I came to the conclusion that the culprit here was Valerian root, which seems to have a pretty nasty odor.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between the Original Somnapure and Somnapure PM?
There’s some pretty big differences between the original and PM version, most notably that the PM version promises pain relief to help you fall asleep.
Chronic pain is one of the leading causes of insomnia, and they may be on to something here.
So what makes this new and improved formula so different?
While the original Somnapure contains traditional sleep aids like L-Theanine, Melatonin, and Valerian, Somnapure PM contains weird ingredients.
What do I mean by weird?
Well, according to the information gathered from the CVS website, it contains Milk, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut, Fish, shellfish, Soy, and Wheat.
According to the label on the box, it contains 400 mg of Bromelain, 4 mg of Melatonin (giving it 1 more mg than the original), and a complete tranquility blend that consists of Valerian root extract, Hops extract, and Lavender.
I’m not sure if the CVS website is entirely accurate, but that’s what they’re telling us.
Price-wise, they’re nearly identical. Somnapure PM retails at around $16, while the average price for the original Somnapure hovers around the $14 mark.
Review-wise, the testimonials I’m reading for Somnapure PM are almost identical to that of the original formula. 50% say it works, the other 50% say it didn’t do a thing.
My guess is the people that are leaving bad reviews likely have very SEVERE cases of insomnia, that of which prescription medications may be the only thing that may work for them.
Are there any side effects with Somnapure?
They “say” there are no known side effects associated with Somnapure, but as with any over the counter sleep aid it’s always possible.
For example, the ingredient melatonin has been well known to cause side effects like headache, depression, daytime sleepiness, dizziness, and stomach cramps.
The ingredient Valerian root also has it’s downsides, with commonly reported side effects like dry mouth, anxiety, and thinking problems being quite common.
One reviewer on Amazon said that he developed a rash after 2 days, however I personally feel that is unlikely based on the proprietary formula.
Also, because it contains sedatives, it’s recommended that you don’t consume alcohol while taking Somnapure, as well as avoid operating heavy machinery.
Is it addictive / cause any withdrawal effects?
I only took it for a few days, and when I stopped taking it I didn’t notice any withdrawal or addictive effects from it. With that said, I would imagine your insomnia would return with abrupt cessation.
Is Somnapure gluten free?
According to the manufacturer, somnapure has not been certified as gluten free.
Can I break the capsules open and dump in a cup?
Not recommended, but I’m sure it’s possible.
Where To Buy Somnapure
You can find Somnapure both online and in several major reputable retailers. GNC, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens all sell it, and the price ranges from as little as $11.88 (Walmart, online only) to as much as $69.99 (90 day supply on their official site).
Here’s the full list of stores that carry Somnapure: Walmart, CVS pharmacy, Walgreens, GNC, Kroger, Shop Rite, Winn Dixie, A&P, Kinney Drugs, and Meijer.
Ordering online seems to be your best bet as far as price is concerned, and saves you the hassle of having to drive to the store to buy it.
The other alternative is to enroll in their auto-shipment program online. You get a chance to try it out for 14 days, and if it doesn’t work for you, can cancel your trial and you won’t be billed. Some people find this as a convenient way to purchase, simply because it’s a supplement you can take everyday.
However, many people don’t realize this when they’re signing up for the trial, and are shocked when they login to their bank or credit card statement and see the charges.
You can completely avoid this by purchasing it directly from the Amazon website.
How do I cancel my trial / sample of Somnapure?
Peak Life makes it EXTREMELY easy to cancel. All you need to do is simply contact them at their official customer service phone number (1-877-460-3326) or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is nice because a lot of online stores selling supplements make it quite hard to cancel auto ship programs and you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it done.
Typically I don’t suffer from any type of chronic insomnia, but like most people, I do have my days where falling (and staying) asleep is not that easy. I finally got a chance to try Somnapure out, and I gotta say it was actually a pretty decent sleep aid. It didn’t smell like horse manure (like Alteril does lol), and it kicked in about an hour after I took it.
The first couple of nights I tried it I fell asleep pretty quickly (about 30 – 60 minutes or so), and woke up feeling very rested and content. I only used it a handful of times, but each time it seemed to work it’s magic. One thing I would definitely recommend is that you refrain from taking it with any alcoholic beverages, as this tends to amplify the “sleepiness” effect, but also seems to amplify hangovers 🙂
All in all, I personally think Somnapure is a very effective sleep aid that could work for just about anyone. If you’re on the fence about this product, I say go for it!

Alteril is a VERY effective, non-addictive sleep aid that will leave you waking up refreshed.
Ambesleep is a fast acting formula that uses all natural ingredients and helps you sleep more deeply.
If it wasn’t for the free trial billing nightmare, we probably would have ranked it higher.

Getting some sleep
Everyone is different, but this has been an awesome sleep aid. I have tried several different types of sleep products and not only do I get sleep but I wake up feeling like a million bucks.

Kinda works for me
Getting to sleep is not my problem, but Somnapure gets me to sleep within an hour. My sleep problem is that the girl next door has woken me up so many times between 6 and 6:30 that I can't get my 8-9 hours. I am only getting six. I also wake up several times a night. After a few nights of somnapure I am still waking up during the night and still waking up around 6 AM. I am not very happy with this. I bought my 15 day supply from walmart. I would really like to get at least 8 hours sleep. I would feel normal. I like feeling normal. I hate the woman on my floor!

There has not been one over the counter med that has helped me sleep. I’m crossing my fingers.
I’m son exhausted with so many sleep less nights. Here’s to sleeping!
THAT will make you sleepy with out all the other stuff in it. This is NOT a natural ingredient.
A recent article I read in a medical report says that Benedyl kills bran cells. No thanks.
Somnapure Clinical Strength does contain Diphenhydramine, but the regular Somnapure uses only natural ingredients.
Somnapure works very well for me.
Usually it’s high. So in the morning I woke up and checked my BP.
It was high. I took one Somapure capsule.
One hour later checked BP again and it was within normal range.
That’s odd. There’s not really anything in Somnapure that would cause your blood pressure to go lower.
Are we talking just a few points lower, or was it a massive drop?
Yes, the recommended dose is 2 pills. For me it took close to an hour for them to kick in.
Like i told you at the beginning that i took it for the first time and how amazed I was on hoe well that it works.I want to thank you for all of the comments along with your replies that you have posted on line. If it would not have been for you I don’t think that I would have tried Somnapure and reason being there are so many products out there that simply does not work or have side effects.I would like to thank you for doing such a good job in promoting Somnapure it really works and you do feel refresh and with a clear head when you wake up in the morning.
Once again a huge thank you for all of your comments and replies that you posted on LIne.
I haven’t actually tried Power to Sleep so I can’t compare them, but if it’s working for you and it’s cheaper than the competition, I’d stick with it.
valerian 500 mg
lemon balm 300 mg
l-theanine 200 mg
hops 120 mg
chamomile 50 mg
passion flower 50 mg
melatonin 3 mg
i take 10 mg melatonin right now and i have a very hard time falling asleep. i will try th somnapure tonight. hope it helps.
Or do you feel the affects the first time taking it?
Actually, it works pretty quickly. Melatonin, Valerian Root, and L-Theanine will all affect you within 30 minutes to an hour.
I really need something that helps without perscription.
Have you tried Alteril? It gets you to sleep fast and you wake up refreshed in the morning.
I’m sure you would get quite sick. I would recommend strongly against trying it.
You’ll have to contact Peak Life regarding your order. Here’s their phone number: 1-877-869-3304. When you sign up for the 14 day trial, they send you a month’s supply and you have 14 days (from order date) to contact them and let them know you don’t want to receive any more on top of the 30 day supply. If you don’t, they’ll keep sending it to you month after month.
Sure. Give me a few weeks, and I’ll let you know when it gets posted to the website.
I slept about five hours and forced myself to get up. I had breakfast and fell asleep again on my chair watching
TV for another three.
Hours. I wonder how many hours the daily sleep effect lasts?
Sometimes the simplest solution is the most practical: Have you considered going to bed at 10 PM instead of at midnight? Once you can stop fretting about your early-rising neighbor, perhaps you can relax enough to sleep without waking up in the middle of the night.

I had good results with it, just a little sleepy the next day. Make sure you’re familiar with the terms and conditions of the trial, so you know how to cancel the automatic shipments that may have been set up by ordering the trial if you need to.
Since people ingest these products including myself WE WANT HONEST ANSWERS to our queries!!!
My preference is for Alteril, mainly because it doesn’t make me groggy the next day like Somnapure does.

Nightmares are from the Melatonin.
Headaches this products has hops in it. Beer is made from hops.
You have an instant hang over if it isn’t processed correctly.
Diarrhea possibly a combo of the valerian root and the hops.
Personally I like alteril.
There is still melatonin in it, but it truly works wonders. And I am on prescribed trazodone and klonopin to help me sleep.
They need a boost. Lately since I am out of the Alteril I have been taking 3mg of melatonin with my rx’s.
I haven’t had any issues.
Melatonin is made by the brain. The older you get, the less melatonin is created.
Affecting sleep. I have found it in 1, 3, and 5 mg doses.
We can safely take up to 6 mg every 24 hours. But if you have a sensitivity to it, you will have nightmares, or night frights.
Didn’t work for me
was hoping it would
went from falling asleep naturally to using ambien.
But since then there have been articles in scientific magazines about the phenomena of two sleep periods.
I haven’t heard of anyone having kidney issues caused by Somnapure. I recommend you visit your doctor to find out what’s going on.
I’ve taken Somnapure, 2 pills, every night for 6 weeks now. My sleep continue to improve..sleeping 6 hours straight some nights.
If I wake up I usually fall back to sleep. I don’t lie awake anymore fighting to go to sleep.
I also don’t experience any of the side effects that others mentioned. I had insomnia for more than 30 years, and I rarely use Ambien now.
Over drew my account. No happy!
It’s the Valerian Root. That stuff stinks to high heaven. When I had it in my house I had to put the supplement bottle inside a canning jar to contain the smell.
I’m glad it works for some people. For me, a hot bath just before bed is the simplest cheapest sleep aid I discovered within the last year.
Like a miracle – for me at least.
I have neuropathy from having had Chronic Lyme Disease so it helps calm my nerves. Anyone who said they have side effects, leads me to ask, what else do you take with it ?
My MD is also a homeopathy and she said it’s the L-theanine in it that puts you to sleep. I buy it at Wal-Mart.
It is also sold at CVS, GNC & Wallgreen stores. It comes with a $2 discount coupon that you can use at time of purchase.
I do recommend it to my friends and they too have had good results.
She fights me for the pill. She’s so funny.
It is a service, and not in the business of selling products. … Think of it as a “Better Business Bureau” for internet sales Thank you, Rob for the site. It is informative and a fantastic idea.
Also, a lot of extra work to maintain . Good Job ! 🙂 Diana
I don’t like how they were not clear regarding the automatic payments. I took one instead of two the first night.
I awoke in the middle of the night with a splitting headache like someone hit me with a baseball bat. I was so groggy that I returned to sleep.
When I awoke in the morning, I felt like I was going to experience a migraine. I also had strange dreams and diarrhea.
So, obviously, I won’t be taking it again
Matter of fact, counting sheep still works the best
because of the cost ( 0) and no side effects(0)
I think I’ll keep on with that but thanks for the reviews even if they may be paid testimonials
Yes, that’s probably the safest way.
This is a review site. We don’t sell Somnapure or any supplement.
What happened is that by signing up for the free trial, they automatically set you up for their autoshipment program. You’ll need to contact the company to cancel.
Their customer service number is 1-877-869-3304. Good luck.
So, no more for me. Now i need a cup of sleepytime tea, or hot chocolate, to calm my nerves.
Bad skin reaction.
Unfortunately Somnapure isn’t working for me in any way whatsoever. I will continue taking the capsules until my supply runs out as Somnapure is rather pricy.
However, it looks like I will continue to be plagued by insomnia. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
When it comes to herbal sleep remedies, it’s really about finding the one with the combination of herbs that works best for you… which may be different than what works for me. That said, I would recommend you try Alteril. I didn’t like the smell, but it’s the one that works best for me.
I have been on a addictive script for sleep and wanted to get off! Tried melatonin, valerian root separately and had no response.
Well tonight was the 2nd time I took and it did indeed get me to sleep w/o my script. However on both occasions including tonight I had very weird upsetting dreams that ultimately woke me up an hour or so after falling asleep!
I will be calling to cancel hoping I don’t go thru the negative experiences others had. I may try cutting back to one vs. 2 that is recommended but don’t like the idea of automatic billing so I’ll see where that goes when I call.
That will make you lose sleep.
What I am trying to find out is if anyone has experienced really bad diarrhea while taking this product.
They have to be on the product lable, but the company and others seem to hide those important facts.
First one was tablets and second was supposed to be capsules since I needed a pill glide to swallow the tablet. Said capsules in photo and on a strip of paper taped on the bottle.
I received tablets. Amazon apologized and offered to send me a prepaid label.
Seems there are two different products and two different labels. Contents amounts are listed on the tablet bottle but ingredients differ from capsule bottle.
I gather from what I have read here that there are extra ingredients in the capsules.
They then gave me a special buy 2 get 1 free. As far as using this it does seem to relax me when I go to bed. still wake up about 3 times during the night but go back to sleep.
My bottle does not look the same as this bottle though. Mine is green and says Somnapure PM.
Resue Stress is another product for times when your mind is too busy and wont let you sleep, It is a spray, just about 5 pumps into your mouth that tastes like a Margarita in a bottle will put a stop to your busy brain and let you sleep.
Sleepy time Tea is also a good attempt to get rest.
Hope these products help someone sleep.
PS talking to God also seems to help too.
I was able to cancel my order quickly over the phone. Even though the person helping me was none-so pleased when I said I really didn’t want any more of the product.
I am uncomfortable with the current research which is inconclusive on safety.
I also have used Somnapure and found it effective, but have similar concerns with continued use of Valerian Root.
Thanks for your response.
I tried Somnapure at its recommended dosage and was wide awake all night. I doubled the dose the next night (4pills), waking up every hour, so no real rest just chopped episodes of dozing.
The next night I added valerian to it….nothing. Last night I took 6 Somnapure, 10 valerian @ 450mg, additional 5mg of melatonin and I dozed on and off for about 4 hours.
I NEED HELP!!!!
Check out a product called Alteril, I have been using it for the last 6 months and it works great.
You sound to me like a person who could use a strong dose of basic human compassion.
I am not a small person so for me to react this way tells me it has way too much of something in it to take the recommended dosage.
