You don’t need us to tell you how important a good night’s sleep is. Your body needs sleep as much as it needs food and water and working out, if not more. To help you get the best resting period for your body comes the Fade Out from RedCon1, a sleep formula looking to knock your A** out..
Redcon1 has been very transparent with their labels, mentioning every single ingredient and its dose, and they do so with the Fade Out as well. Let’s run down through the label and see what they came up with.
Phenibut 1g – labeled as 4-amino-3-phenylbutyric acid, Phenibut acts as a depressant for the nervous system, and doing so effectively (aka – gets you to chill down). However, there is a bit of controversy with it, as there were some reports that it can be addictive to some individuals. RedCon1 also put in FADE OUT quite the dose, so we would start slow with this one.
Mucuna Pruriens 1g – also known as velvet bean, Mucuna Pruriens is mostly used for its growth hormone boosting abilities, but in this case it’s used for its stress relieving properties, so you kind of get a two-in-one with this ingredient.
GABA 1g – Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) You should start feeling relaxed just by reading about this ingredient…. It acts as a depressor for the nervous system, allowing you to fall asleep way faster than you normally would.
L-Arginine HCl 1g – Pretty weird seeing this ingredient here, as you are probably used to seeing L-Arginine used more as a pump booster, but that is not its only trait. Studies found that it also has stress and nerve reducing abilities, as well as helping with getting a much deeper sleep. Still we are not sure it would be our first choice in this blend.
Phenylalanine 750mg – Phenylalanine is used in a process in the brain that eventually ends up in increasing amounts of dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine which leads to an overall better feeling. So expect better dreams about you crashing new bench PRs!
Valerian Root 600mg – This one is where Redcon1 shows how serious they are about this product. Many research was done about Valerian Root and its extract. The results are quite straight forward – it will make you sleep. Hard. The dosage here is also right on the money!
L-Theanine 500mg – Another well proven ingredient, L-Theanine is known to put the body in a very relaxed, calm state. In some studies it was found to even increase quality of sleep. But mostly it is a mood elevator.
Melatonin 5mg – Yeah, we know, we should have started with this one… The MUST ingredient in every sleeping formula, Melatonin is a well proven popular ingredient that helps maintain sleep cycles.
There are more ingredients in the Fade Out, mostly vitamins and minerals to help out the recovery and repairing processes that happen during your sleep. We’ll not go into detail about them, but we will mention them here: 150mg Magnesium Citrate, 100mg Vitamin C, 10mg Zinc Sulfate, 6mg Vitamin B6, 10 IU Vitamin E.
The Label’s Bottom Line- One heck of a label! Again REDCON1 brought in the who’s who of the knock you out peacefully celebrity ingredients! With that said, though, we decided to start with half a dose to tame down the Phenibut effect, so you’ll want to do a feel check and see how you react to it.
Effectiveness – We took our own advice and started with half a dose, and that was a good idea. You will be surprised of how effective it is, especially if you’re someone to have issues sleeping. We felt the effect twice when we took it for a few nights and the difference when we stopped! It does get you in sleeping groove. We woke up rejuvenated!
We would also recommend not to take it every night and just overall not overuse it or get used to sleep only with it. As such, for us personally, this would be a great aid when we know we need to have a real kick ass sleep (someone said its leg day tmrw?)
Fade Out comes in two flavors, Black Currant and Orange, with the Black Currant taking the cake for us.
Priced at $39.99 for 30 servings (on most sites – and actually priced at $49.99 at RedCon1…) might sound a bit harsh but the right way to look at it is 60 effective servings (half the dose) which not a bad value if you are looking at what you are getting. You get a great product that can be used for a very long time for $0.8 per good night sleep and some great dreams.
On the deals side of things, obviously you should always compare prices for any supplements on the Fitness Deal News price comparison engine and sign up to the deal alerts newsletter, so when a deal pops up you’ll be the first to know about it!
To say that the Fade Out is a bit over the top is an understatement, but it doesn’t mean it is not good. On the contrary, it is just what you would want from a sleeping formula, and it does its job very effectively. If you experience any sleeping problems or just looking for an improvement, Fade Out is a great option for you to try. And yes, it is ranked no.1 on our top 10 list for sleep & recovery supplements…
