The World’s Most Effective Sleep Aid
Go Dark™ is 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, IGF-1 and growth hormone. Better sleep has also been linked to lower body fat levels, faster recovery from exercise and improved quality of life.
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 behaviour, 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, increase growth hormone, and boost strength.
For maximum results, Go Dark is taken 2 capsules, 30-60 minutes before bed.
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 nap.
Do I need to cycle it?
We recommend taking a week off after every four week cycle.
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.
