We can always count on Hilary Duff to give us a glimpse into
her life as a mother and actress via her iPhone lens, but her most recent Instagram
snapshot is screenshot-worthy for anyone who, like Duff appears to be, has a
hard time winding down at the end of a long day.
“It’s Friday night guys…do me right,” the 30-year-old captioned
a shot of a a sleek canned beverage called Som Sleep ($10 for four), which she appeared to be
sipping in bed. Upon doing our research, we learned that a near-death
experience due to a severe lack of sleep led Som Sleep founder John Shegerian
to create the new sleep-promoting brand, which is already making waves after
just a few months of sales.

The brand has yet to be evaluated by the FDA, but the “anti-energy
drinks” are said (and proven, according to customer reviews) to help support
sleep when drank 30 minutes before you’re ready to go to bed for the night. Available
in both regular and sugar-free options, the berry-flavored noncarbonated drink is packed with
ingredients that are sure to lull you off to sleep like magnesium and vitamin
B6 for healthy sleep patterns and L-Theanine (an amino acid derived from green and black and green tea leaves) and GABA for a boost of internal zen. The addition of melatonin aids with maintaining a normal circadian rhythm
through the night and over time.
At only 40 calories a can—plus, they’re vegan, gluten-free
and said to be non-habit forming—these might be worth a shot if you’re finding
yourself tossing and turning all night. In fact, the brand recommends sipping on the drink only when you have a minimum of seven to eight hours to commit to sleeping. The website also reveals that customers have reported feeling rested and refreshed after waking up.
As of now, Som Sleep is available in a four-pack, 12-pack and 24-pack for one-time purchase or recurring delivery through
the company’s website. They’ll also soon be available on Amazon.
