PearlyDreams sleepy people

I’m a Tri-athlete and Ironman. I work hard, train hard and yes, I HAVE to sleep hard.

I have tried over the counter sleeping aids and have really not wanted to go the prescription route. When I was presented with your sleep relief product, I was thrilled. Being in a health conscious field (I am also a gym teacher and coach) I love the fact that your toothpaste is all natural.

That sold me. The first night I tried it, I had a wonderful night’s sleep and woke up at 5am ready for my run. Thank you Dr Z.
A customer forever,

You would think that as a single mother with 4 children, working 3 jobs and raising a new puppy, I would fall asleep the instant my head hit the pillow. Unfortunately, just the opposite was true – I needed help with sleep. I would lay awake for hours, worrying about finances, my teenage daughters, my extensive to do list for the next day... So, when Dr. Zuckerman asked me to try his new toothpaste, I couldn't get it fast enough. Sleeping pills were not in my budget, but toothpaste sure was! And I loved the fact that there were no drugs involved, just all natural, non addictive ingredients. The first night I tried it, I fell asleep quickly and woke up refreshed, energized and ready to go! I would recommend this toothpaste to anyone who needs a little help unwinding at the end of the day.
It works like a dream!!
