The World’s Most Effective Sleep Aid
Go Dark™ was designed to help you relax and increase your total sleep time and sleep quality. Better, deeper sleep allows the body to produce more hormones such as testosterone, growth hormone and IGF-1. Better sleep has also been linked to lower body fat levels, faster recovery from exercise and improved quality of life.
GO DARK WILL:
- improve sleep quality
- speed recovery
- increase testosterone
- raise IGF-1 levels
- boost growth hormone
- lower body fat
HOW TO USE:
For maximum results, Go Dark is taken 2 capsules, 20-30 minutes before bed.
- Valerian – promotes relaxation and sleep, mediated through the GABA receptor.
- L-Theanine – reduces physical and mental stress, increases GABA and dopamine.
- 5-HTP – increases the synthesis of serotonin, which affects sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation.
- Melatonin – a hormone made by the pineal gland, melatonin helps control the wake and sleep cycle.
- Zinc, magnesium, B6 – shown to increase testosterone, IGF-1, and strength.
When do I take Go Dark?
Take two capsules 20-30 minutes before bed, preferably on an empty stomach. DO NOT take during the day unless you are in the position to take a long nap.
Do I need to cycle it?
We recommend taking a week off after every four week cycle.
Do you suggest stacking anything with Go Dark?
You can stack Go Dark with ALPHA and/or Testdex to maximize testosterone and growth hormone levels.
How long does it take for me to feel it start working?
You should feel the effects within 20-30 minutes. If you eat before taking Go Dark the effects may take a little longer.
