The Melatonin Myth

The Toxic Conspiracy Feeding Your Monkey Brain And Keeping You Awake

keeping you awake
“Wait, melatonin is a hormone?”
Melatonin is certainly not some herb that comes from the ground.
So it makes you think…
Is an entire population of desperate and sleep-deprived
people abusing an over-the-counter hormone?
Well, many countries have already banned its use…
“Melatonin has been banned for years in the United Kingdom (UK), European Union, Japan, Australia, and most recently Canada.” [1]
Michael Breus, Ph.D., a sleep disorder specialist, warns:
“Melatonin is a sleep regulator, not a sleep initiator.” [2]

Harvard, Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland Clinic have approved melatonin for short-term use.

But what about the long-term?

What are the implications?

Will you ever be able to fall asleep without it?

If you struggle with sleep, there’s a good chance you’ve tried melatonin.

But who can blame you?

When you lay awake in bed “counting sheep,” getting more antsy as each minute passes, you’ll try ANYTHING.
I did.
I Still Remember The Night
I Decided
“Enough Was Enough”

I was in my twenties, working two full-time jobs. Forty hours in the gym as a trainer. Forty hours for myself as an independent contractor.

I went from sleeping 8 hours to less than 4.

I remember how quickly that started to wear on me.

I never had good sleep.

But now, I wasn’t even in bed long enough to give my body a chance.

I thought to myself: What if there’s a way to get the same sleep quality in half the time?

Instead of 8 hours, 4.

So I tried everything under the sun.

Long story short, I crashed.


My nervous system was fried


My energy was shot


My motivation was in the dumps

And let’s not even talk about my sex drive 😱

Not to mention other weird things started happening…

I started reacting to nearly everything I ate.

I’d feel bloated, tired, and uncomfortable
no matter how
healthy the meal was.
So I called it quits…

I gave up most of my shifts and went from sleeping just 4 hours to sleeping for 10. I was desperate to get things right.

But despite sleeping all the time, I never felt rested.

Eventually, when things went unchanged, I invested over $45,000 into my sleep:


Faraday cages (to block EMFs)


PMs that send waves to my body


Ion oxygen machine


Double blackout shades in my entire room


State of the art air purifiers


And I've been doing sleep experiments with different substances nonstop for about five years

Despite getting benefits from a lot of the expensive equipment…

I’ve found just a tiny handful of hacks that have transformed how I sleep and have sent my sleep scores through the roof.

But it’s not just my scores…
I’ve replicated these transformational results with
hundreds of other individuals WITHOUT failure.

Hey, I’m Matt Gallant, and there was a time when I was severely held back by one thing; my 💩 sleep.

Now, as a self-proclaimed biohacker…

I have become a lab rat.

There is nothing I am more passionate about than sleep…

Because sleep is the master switch to a higher state of being and better life.

Want to be more productive, accelerate weight loss,
improve digestion, or have better sex?

It all starts with sleep…
Sleep Is The Most Potent Nootropic,
Fat Burner, Mood Stabilizer, And
Testosterone Booster

But I don’t need to tell you that.

You already know.

So if you’ve “tried everything” to fall asleep without hope or if you can’t seem to get a good night's rest despite sleeping enough…

What I’m about to share might seem counterintuitive, unorthodox, or plain stupid… But it flat-out works.

And in just a few moments, you’ll discover WHY it works like nothing you’ve ever tried before…

Ditch The Melatonin, Fall Asleep In Minutes,
And Wake Up Feeling Superhuman

This simple sleep hack will unlock a new level of mental and physical performance you’ve NEVER experienced before.


Silicon Valley is hunting for a magic potion to cut their sleeping time in half…

While getting the same quality of sleep from 4 hours instead of 8.

Sound like science fiction?

Just do the math with me:
There are two forms of restorative sleep, or
“productive” sleep as we call it.
#1 REM sleep which is when you dream.

The brain is cleared of toxins, repaired, and replenished.

#2 NREM (or deep sleep) is when the
body is 13-23% spent in deep sleep.

REM sleep accounts for about the same
amount if you’re a healthy sleeper.


…but with 70 million people in just the US having sleep struggles...[3]


…the average person getting 6.8 hours of sleep a night…[4]


…and sleep environments are being consumed by technology, blue light, and distraction…

How much quality, restorative, productive sleep are YOU getting?

The rise of sleep technology like Oura ring has given us a peek into the average person’s sleep quality.

And the results are shocking.


The rise of sleep technology like Oura ring has given us a peek into the average person’s sleep quality.

And the results are shocking.

This isn’t even the worst of it.

These are results from a wide spectrum of people…

From entrepreneurs, engineers, moms…

20 to 75 years of age…

And the truth is…

Even if you sleep 7 hours (not just time spent in bed) and get the optimal amount of restorative sleep…

You’ll spend approximately 55 to 97 minutes in deep NREM sleep and 55 to 97 minutes in REM sleep…

At BEST, you’ll get just over 3 hours of restorative sleep.

So is 4 hours so far-fetched now?

Most people “push through” and just find a way to “make it work”...

While others have no clue they’re operating at a fraction of their true potential, causing a host of unexplainable problems that extend beyond tiredness.

And I shouldn't have to mention a host of more serious, long-term problems that can occur if this struggle persists for long enough.

You already know the importance of high-quality, restorative sleep.

I’m simply showing you how to make the most of every minute you spend under the sheets.

What I’m about to reveal to you has amounted to almost unexplainable levels of restorative sleep, despite not following the recommended 8 hours…

So if you want to experience a new level of performance, productivity, and energy…

And discover what an optimal night’s sleep really feels like, read very closely.

This case study will break down with irrefutable science why nothing has ever worked for you…

The findings from over $45,000 spent on my own sleep journey…

And what science has to say about how to get MORE deep, restorative sleep.

Because I’m willing to bet, even if you don’t know it or aren’t willing to admit it…

You’re a victim of poor sleep quality…

And with a few simple shifts to your neurobiology, we can optimize your mental and physical performance during the day…

You’ll become UNSTOPPABLE.

These Unorthodox Methods Immediately Multiply Your Deep Sleep, No Matter How Stubborn Your Monkey Brain Is…

You may be familiar with how certain activities like meditation or hypnosis can alter brainwaves (gamma, beta, alpha, theta, delta)...

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison have found that during meditation, Zen Buddhist monks show an extraordinary synchronization of brain waves known as gamma synchrony—a pattern increasingly associated with robust brain function and the synthesis of activity that we call the mind.[5]


Brainwaves can cause you to feel an “out of body experience.”


Brainwaves can cause you to feel “in the zone.”


Brainwaves can cause you to feel agitated, overwhelmed, and helpless.


Brainwaves can catapult you into deep sleep or keep you awake for hours.

If you struggle to fall asleep…

And if you experience what I call the “monkey brain,” your mind starts racing the moment you hit the pillow (no matter how tired you are)...

You’re stuck in beta – the brainwave responsible for keeping us alert, focused, and aware of our surroundings…

…the last thing you want when trying to fall asleep.


So you can probably imagine if you had ultimate, split-second, or even unconscious control over your brain waves, you’d be unstoppable.

With a snap of your fingers, you could fall asleep, enter deep sleep almost instantly and wake up alert, without any grogginess that you’d experience from taking melatonin.

In fact, with this level of mind control, nothing is impossible.

You will have the ability to tap into new parts of your brain like you’re Bradley Cooper in Limitless.

I’m not saying this is like some superpower, but it’s as close as you’ll get.

So the secret is, HOW do we control these brainwaves?

And how can we influence them when we’re lying there unconscious at 4 am?

Well, before I get there, let’s take a step back.

The 4 Phases Of Sleep –The Secret On
How To Sleep Less And Feel Better

We sleep in about 90-minute intervals.

Sleep for 6 hours? You’ll go through 4 full sleep cycles.

It might look like this:

6-hours-sleep-image [6]

Within each sleep cycle, there are 4 stages…

And each stage is defined by the electrical activity in the brain which an EEG can measure:

eeg-measure-image [7]

Stage 1 (N1) – this should only last a few minutes as it’s simply a gateway into and out of sleep. This is why you can only remember dreams for the first few minutes of waking up because you’re still in this mind state.

Stage 2 (N2) – on average, this can make up over 50% of your sleep and is defined by sleep spindles and k-complexes.

Stage 3 (N3) – is what we call deep sleep. The more time you spend in deep sleep the more rested and rejuvenated you’ll feel when you wake up. The problem is most people struggle to enter and stay in deep sleep long enough.

Stage 4 (N4) – this is the dream state. Normally, it’ll begin 90 minutes after you fall asleep and occur more frequently as you stay asleep.

If you were to record your sleep activity (which is the benefit of sleep devices like Oura) you might be as shocked as I was.

Most people wake up multiple times at night without even realizing it – going in and out of dream states. Almost as if they were starting the process all over again each time they woke up.


…the weird thing is these sleep disturbances happen without your partner moving the bed, a child crying, or construction outside.

They can happen by both chemical and biological disturbances internally.

The same reasons why some people can never seem to get enough deep, restorative sleep.

These results are far from rare.


Over 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems.[8] And those are only the ones who are accounted for.

Most people “get by” without even knowing they have a sleep problem…

People who experience mystery problems like mood swings and weight gain...

So how do you take control of your sleep once and for all?

The Master Switch That Controls When
And How DEEP You Sleep…

If you’re struggling to fall asleep, this may be why.

The body’s circadian rhythm is controlled by a master switch in the hypothalamus called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN).

It tells your body when to get tired, fall asleep, eat, and even what time of day you're most productive.

Like I used to be, sleepless warriors are often suffering from an SCN misfiring.

Certainly, sleeping in on the weekend and waking up early during the week doesn’t help, but it goes much beyond that.

See, the SCN is altered (and recalibrated) by zeitgebers.

Zeitgebers are external cues that regulate the SCN and the circadian rhythm.

Circadian rhythms and zeitgebers determine both the quality and quantity of sleep. They also control the transition between different sleep stages, which is crucial for maximizing your time in deep sleep.

The core four zeitgebers are:







Social interaction

Light is the most impactful.

That’s why melatonin has become so popular as it acts as an artificial zeitgeber for light.

Naturally, the body only produces .3mg of melatonin throughout the night.

The average pill contains no less than 3mg, often up to 10mg, which is between 10-30x normal ranges.

Imagine if someone did the same thing with testosterone?


We become desensitized to melatonin…

And our body can’t regulate how much melatonin is active during different stages of sleep…

…which can cause abnormal sleep stages and grogginess in the morning.

So if not melatonin, then what?

Recalibrate Your Circadian Rhythm,
Silence The
Monkey Brain, And
Into A Deep Sleep Almost Instantly…

The gabaergic system is the gateway to perfect, uninterrupted, restorative sleep.

See, there are two types of neurotransmitters in your brain.

#1 Excitatory neurotransmitters – Brain chemicals that will keep you alert, awake, and sensitive to stimuli, such as glutamate. In fact, glutamate is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.

#2 Inhibitory neurotransmitters – These chemical messengers are mostly responsible for calming the mind and inducing sleep. The major inhibitory neurotransmitters are GABA (which is an amino acid) and serotonin (which is a powerful hormone that can also make you happy).

When you’re winding down for sleep, your body should activate these powerful inhibitory neurotransmitters to calm your mind.

And as you hit the pillow, they should inhibit neurons from firing, thus silencing your monkey brain and halting racing thoughts in their tracks.

Then when it’s time for your body to enter slow-wave, deep sleep, GABA can act as a catalyst to help your body naturally transition seamlessly from one sleep stage to another.

This meta-analysis proved GABA achieves both:


Reduces sleep latency (how long it takes to fall asleep)


Increases the time spent in slow-wave deep sleep (delta)

This study showed that GABA increases sleep efficiency – so you can get the most out of every minute under the sheets.

…exactly what Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and top athletes are looking for.

The Forgotten Hormone That Intensifies
Deep Sleep And Multiplies Sleep Efficiency

GABA certainly isn’t a magic pill, nor does it work alone…

The “happy hormone” serotonin acts as a potent inhibitory neurotransmitter to calm the mind, and quickly transition your mind into a deep sleep.

Unlike GABA, you can’t directly supplement with serotonin. Instead, you have to rely on its precursors, like tryptophan.

Tryptophan is the reason people believe Thanksgiving turkey makes them sleepy. But to be honest, there’s only 200mg of tryptophan in a serving of turkey.

Then I discovered a nearly identical substance to serotonin in the body, 5-HTP.

Just look at this:


With very little effort, the body can easily turn 5-HTP into serotonin (5-HT).

But more importantly, you’re enabling your body to use serotonin at its discretion instead of outwardly intervening.

Because the principle I’ve learned after trying to force my body to sleep, focus, and build muscle is…


And that’s why instead of forcing your body to act how you want it to with other sleep products (that kill sleep efficiency) or hormones like melatonin…

The Key Is To Support Your Body With The
Blocks To Perform At Its Best.

After spending over $45,000 on my sleep…

Adding this to my sleep routine has recalibrated my circadian rhythm, helped me fall asleep within minutes and shaved 3 FULL hours off my time in bed while drastically improving my sleep scores.

And it’s not just my sleep that has improved…

So What’s Inside?


Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is found in nature. It's concentrated most heavily in your brain, eyes, heart, and muscles.

You’ve probably seen Taurine on the label of energy drinks. Why? Because it helps counter the overstimulation from caffeine.

Taurine is a known relaxant.[9] It increases glycine (more on this in a minute) and GABA in the body which calms down your brain.


Glycine is an amino acid that helps lower your core body temperature by increasing blood flow to your body's extremities. Lowering your body temperature is a crucial step for high-quality deep sleep.

A recent study on glycine revealed that it causes a drop in body temperature while also promoting faster sleep onset and longer REM sleep duration. According to other research, adding glycine to your diet may help you enter deep, slow-wave sleep more efficiently.[10]

Three grams of glycine before bedtime improves sleep quality and reduces sleepiness and fatigue during the day in individuals with sleeplessness tendencies or restricted sleep time.[11][12] So basically you’re getting better sleep and zero grogginess the next day.

Calcium Citrate

Calcium citrate is a calcium salt that is easier to absorb than calcium carbonate but has less potency. Calcium is a vital mineral that helps the body's many systems function properly.[13]

Calcium has been shown to play a critical role in the REM stage of sleep. It helps transform the amino acid tryptophan into serotonin which is a building block for melatonin.

A study published in 2013 [14] found that calcium helps those who struggle falling asleep and helps deliver a truly restful sleep.

An earlier study[15] published in the European Neurology Journal found that calcium levels are elevated in some of the deeper sleep cycles, such REM sleep. The study concluded that low levels of calcium can lead to sleep disruptions, which can ruin a good night’s rest.


Not all GABA is created equal. We tested every GABA on the market and the most powerful one is called GABA. GABA creates a powerful "relaxation response," which helps you sleep better through the night. [16] GABA is better absorbed than traditional GABA and when it binds to your GABA receptors, your nervous system calms down.


L-theanine is an amino acid primarily found in green tea, black tea, and certain mushrooms. It’s been shown to promote relaxation, and improve sleep onset.[17][16]

L-theanine is one of my FAVORITE ingredients for better sleep. I’ve been using it for years and the body never adapts. It ALWAYS works. 200 mg is a great dose.

Researchers found that 200 mg of L-theanine increases alpha brain waves. This helps prepare you for a great night’s slumber. It helps CALM your brain down within 30 minutes. It quiets the monkey mind and pulls the hamsters off the running wheel.

Another benefit of L-Theanine is that it promotes relaxation without drowsiness.[18][17] This means you’ll wake in the morning feeling refreshed.

Magnesium Bis-glycinate

A 2012 double-blind randomized clinical research involving 46 seniors with sleep struggles discovered that supplementing with magnesium bisglycinate increased melatonin and renin levels, as well as sleep time and efficiency. Magnesium bisglycinate supplementation also showed significant reductions in sleep onset latency and sleep quality scores.[19][23]


P5P is an active form of vitamin B-6. P5P is a powerful coenzyme that helps convert more magnesium into serotonin which then helps us create more melatonin.

P5P also regulates the electrical functioning of your neurons, heart, and musculoskeletal system, which helps balance your salt levels.[20][24]

We will discuss the importance of those vital minerals for sleep in just a moment.

Magnolia Bark

Traditional Chinese medicine has been using magnolia bark as a supplement for thousands of years. Honokiol and magnolol, two polyphenols contained in magnolia bark, have been found to play a role in promoting and enhancing sleep.[21]

A mice study found that a dose of 2.3–0.9 mg per pound of body weight significantly decreased sleep latency (the amount of time it takes to fall asleep). This dose was also shown to increase REM (rapid eye movement) and non-REM sleep.[22]


Potassium is crucial. Your body needs potassium to transmit nerve signals, activate muscles, and maintain an optimal fluid balance. It's important for maintaining control of your heartbeat.[23][25]

ZINC Picolinate

Zinc Picolinate is a form of zinc that is better absorbed by the body than other forms of zinc.[24]

Zinc is a well-researched mineral for sleep.

Zinc, melatonin, and magnesium were evaluated in a research study by Rondanelli et al. in 2011 on individuals with sleep struggles. While melatonin may have aided in falling asleep, they believed that magnesium and zinc contributed to the restorative benefits of sleep.[25]

Zinc is important for the metabolism of melatonin (cofactor alert). It has a calming impact on the nervous system and is also known to aid in mental recuperation following stressful events.

Fixing a zinc deficiency will also help men to optimize their testosterone. One study examined the effects of a zinc and magnesium supplement. It showed that men who consumed 30 mg of zinc daily had higher levels of free testosterone than those who didn't.[26] Another trial put a group of elderly men who had a slight zinc deficiency on zinc supplements for six months. As a result, their serum testosterone levels had increased significantly after 24 weeks.[27][28]

Blue Spirulina Phycocyanin

According to reports, spirulina aids in the body's production of serotonin, which regulates mood and relieves stress. Moreover, tryptophan, a component of spirulina, has been shown to support the body's melatonin production.[29] Spirulina is also rich in vitamins and minerals, along with inflammation-balancing components that support healthy brain function. [30]

Malic Acid

A short study conducted in Japan on 29 healthy young adult men examined the results of consuming a unique milk protein drink that had been acidified with malic and citric acid. Based on results from cognition tests, they discovered that the beverage may enhance cognition.[31][29]

Bamboo Silica

Bamboo silica helps to safeguard our cognitive health by bolstering the connective tissues that surround the brain and spinal cord. Animal studies suggested that bamboo silica may counteract age-related cognitive decline.[32]

Monk Fruit

Monk fruit extract, used to make sweeteners, comes from dried fruit. The extract has no calories or carbs, is 150–250 times sweeter than table sugar, and does not cause blood sugar levels to rise.[33]


Thaupure (also known as thaumatin) is a protein sweetener. ​​Thaumatin also has the same energizing effects as regular sugar, but it is 2,000 sweeter. It is one of the most potent natural sweeteners out there. [34][30]

Organic Mixed Berry Powder, Organic Grape Juice Powder, and Organic Beetroot Juice

These flavors were added to produce the delicious blue berry flavor.
