Somanol promises to help ensure a safe and refreshing night’s sleep. The supplement is marketed as a blend of natural extracts formulated to give a good and fast night’s sleep and provide a potent natural relief.
According to the manufacturer, the formula is safe and non-habit forming and is an equally effective alternative to prescription drugs.
The manufacturer is Health Advantage, an American company committed to offering quality health-giving supplement formulas that address a variety of conditions (baldness, joint pain, digestive disorders, vision impairment, memory loss, cholesterol, etc.). The company has been in business for over 20 years and offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee on all their products.
The product should help people who have difficulties falling or staying asleep, who can’t get a restful sleep or can’t sleep the whole night through and people who suffer from insomnia.
Somanol includes the following ingredients: Valerian, Melatonin, Lactusa Virosa (Wild Lettuce Extract) and Hops.
Somanol is an herbal blend promoted as a highly effective non-addictive, non-habit forming sleep aid.
The formula contains Valerian, Wild Lettuce and Hops extracts, all of which are known to have sedative effects. Wild Lettuce has been used as an anesthetic and a sleep aid and has several side effects associated especially in large amounts (slow breathing and even death). Valerian is one of the most popular natural remedies for insomnia, as well as other health conditions (cramps, headaches, vertigo, etc.). It has also been associated with side effects such as giddiness and disorientation (when taken in large excessive doses.) Similarly, Hops is traditionally used as a treatment for anxiety, insomnia and restlessness.
Melatonin is a hormone which plays a crucial role in regulating the sleep cycle. Melatonin levels increase in the evening preparing the body for sleep and decrease in the morning, inducing wakefulness.
- Herbal ingredients (recognized as generally safe)
- 60-day money back guarantee
- The manufacturer has a 20 years business experience.

Like most herbal dietary supplements on the market, Somanol is not clinically researched and the manufacturer does not offer empirical evidence to support the benefit claims. The ingredients in the formula have however been shown to have sedative effects, therefore we may argue that the supplement may potentially be effective.
Furthermore, the manufacturer offers a 60-day money back guarantee on the condition that the unused portion is returned.
Given that each patient is different (health conditions, undergoing treatments), we advise our readers to seek medical advice before starting treatment, as we do with all dietary supplements.
