Man REM-PM is a sleep aid that is also designed to work as a fat burning supplement for men who not only need a proper night of rest but who are also trying to reduce their weight. The design of the product is meant to promote deep, restful sleep while increasing the metabolic rate throughout the night without the use of stimulants so someone attempting to lose weight will be able to get more out of their efforts.
This product is manufactured by a company called Man Sports. It contains a mild natural sedative and is sold in bottles of 60 supplements. This provides enough for a one to two months supply of the product as the directions recommend that a user takes between one and two capsules at bedtime.
At the time of the writing of this review, the official product page on the manufacturer’s website listed the following as the ingredients that made up this formulation: valerian extract, GABA, L-tryptophan ethyl ester, L-carnitine, green tea (EGCG), ginko biloba, 5-hydroxy-tryptophan, L-alpha-glycerylphosphoryl-choline (GPC).
These are all ingredients commonly found in sleep supplements, diet pills and nootropics. While most of these ingredients aren’t proven, some have been widely accepted in the natural treatment market. For example, valerian is broadly used as a mild sedative that helps to relax the body and mind and is commonly seen in herbal and natural sleep supplements. Green tea has been shown in some limited studies to be helpful in assisting with weight loss among patients with obesity. alpha-GPC is often used as a nootropic which is a category meant to provide memory support in patients with dementia, Alzheimer’s, after a stroke or who are otherwise struggling with memory loss.
For people who are struggling to be able to sleep and whose occasional insomnia is caused by a restless mind or body, this product may help these users to be able to obtain the rest they need. This is not a powerful sedative but it could help to make it easier to fall asleep or remain sleeping through the night. However, it is unlikely that this product will cause any measurable weight loss among users.
While it may contain some mild fat burners, research has never shown that metabolism boosters used at night make a measureable difference to weight loss. Even if the body is burning more fat, it isn’t necessarily burning through enough to make a difference on the bathroom scale.
