Discover the most delicious sleep improvement supplement in hot chocolate format!
Beedtime Hot Chocolate is designed to be used just you would any other cup of hot chocolate before bed.
Say goodbye to capsules or powders with unpleasant flavours with our super convenient drink format.
Just add 150ml of hot water to a cup. We recommend heating the water alone, before adding the product, for perfect solubility.
Add a scoop of our delicious Beedtime Hot Chocolate and stir until fully integrated.
We have developed an incredible product backed by months of research into the best combination of ingredients to achieve its authentic hot chocolate taste.
Enjoy the classic hot chocolate experience. Alongside all the benefits of the ingredients backed by HSN research.
All the amino acids in the Beedtime Hot Chocolate formula come from plant sources.
Most of the amino acids on the market come from animal sources, including the fur of certain mammals, and even from bone or cartilaginous tissue.
At HSN, we prefer to use vegan amino acids, which are equally effective and mean those who choose not to consume animal products can enjoy them too.
We are committed to ensuring each and every dietary supplement we sell is suitable for vegetarians and other dietary choices, meaning the our choice of ingredients is always based on the following formula:
Effectiveness + Safety + Compatibility = HSN Quality.
To achieve the perfect hot chocolate texture, and to ensure the product has a genuinely unbeatable composition, we've used powdered milk cream.
This gives it a truly unrivalled texture, like real hot chocolate. You'll love it!
Milk is an animal derivative, suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans. That's why the product isn't suitable for vegan diets.
And HSN's recipe is a game changer — try it once and you'll never look back, not to mention get the best rest you've had in years.
Beedtime Hot Chocolate has 10/10 solubility.
Many powder-format dietary supplements fail to mix and leave lumps in your drinks. They're suspended in water, and while this may be acceptable in ingredients such as pure magnesium, when we want to both enjoy the supplement as well as reap the benefits, it's not enough.
Well, don't worry! At HSN, we've developed a formula that mixes 100% for the best results. You won't get a sandy texture or any traces of unmixed supplement.
Enjoy the full flavuor + texture of hot chocolate!
Are you bored taking capsules and tablets? We get that. And we bring you the solution:
The most unique presentation of an already excellent dietary supplement!
We've used immediate absorption Melatonin to maximise the acute effects of the product so that you can make the most of its benefits as quickly as possible.
Simply enjoy your hot chocolate and rest!
You can also check out our prolonged-release Melatonin-based product catalogue, including our delicious strawberry and cream flavoured chewable tablets made with Melotime™.
In this product, the melatonin used is immediately absorbed as, according to nutritional studies, its peak effect occurs 50 minutes after consumption, making it perfect for you to enjoy your Beedtime Hot Chocolate while reading in bed, or after dinner, so that the peak effect of the melatonin occurs just in time to help you fall fast asleep.
Beedtime Hot Chocolate is an exclusive HSN format, in a unique presentation.
Don't look for it elsewhere, because you won't find it!
The ingredients are specifically formulated to promote the maximum efficacy of our Beedtime Hot Chocolate. Its star ingredients include:
- L-Arginine HCl.
- GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid).
- L-Ornitine HCl.
- 5-HTP from Griffonia simplicifolia.
Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea leaves, and there's a large body of scientific research that points to its effects in relation to night-time use. For example:
- Kim, S., Jo, K., Hong, K. B., Han, S. H., & Suh, H. J. (2019). GABA and l-theanine mixture decreases sleep latency and improves NREM sleep. Pharmaceutical Biology, 57(1), 65–73.
The study above highlights the importance of the combination of amino acids, such as L-Theanine and GABA, in making the Beedtime Hot Chocolate formula the best possible product for rest.
Not all theanines are the same! And the natural theanine in green tea is the amino acid actually backed by scientific studies and safety tests. Not synthetic theanine!
At HSN, we use authentic, pure L-Theanine from natural green tea.
Griffonia simplicifolia is a plant native to Africa, which has seeds rich in a highly-valued amino acid: 5-Hydroxy-L-Tryptophan (5-HTP).
This tryptophan derivative is unique to griffonia, and is widely used at night for its nutritional characteristics.
Our Beedtime Hot Chocolate wouldn't be complete without melatonin!
Melatonin has powerful rest-enhancing properties:
It has been studied widely for its positive effects on sleep. It might be the ingredient with the most scientific research in this aspect.
Each Beedtime Hot Chocolate drink brings you:
- 200mg of elemental magnesium (magnesium citrate).
- 3mg of zinc (zinc citrate).
Magnesium contributes to normal nervous system function.
The product is best mixed in dairy or plant milk, as it looks more like a real hot chocolate, although if you're in a cutting stage you can mix it with water.
Ideally, this product should be used 30-60 minutes before going to bed, as this is the best way to achieve maximum effectiveness by matching the peak of activity with the time you fall asleep.
It goes well with:
