Anyone looking for a product to keep them awake will find most supermarkets contain a plethora of caffeinated beverages available to do just that. A new drink called Som wants to do the opposite and is formulated to provide a good night’s rest—an anti-energy drink, of sorts.
The beverage contains minerals and chemicals that have been found to promote sleep, such as magnesium, which aids in the body’s natural production of melatonin. Som contains no sugar, gluten or dairy, making it acceptable for vegans to have. Som advises consumers to drink the beverage about 30 minutes before going to bed, giving the body enough time to relax and get ready to fall asleep.
