In today's stressful world, it's oftentimes difficult to obtain adequate sleep. Athletes engaged in hard training especially need the benefits of sound sleep to allow their bodies to recover.

REM Caps' nutrient combination allows you to reap the health and performance benefits of a more sound, restful, and productive sleep. If you're looking for a safe, effective sleep aid, look no further, just add REM Caps to your next order.

What's In REM Caps and What Do These Nutrients Do?

Valerian Root Extract - Valerian is perhaps the most widely used herb for help in dealing with nervousness, stress, anxiety and insomnia. Valerian may also be beneficial for proper circulation, maintaining healthy blood pressure, reducing mucus accumulation during colds, temporary relief of muscle cramps, and helping support healthy bowels.

Melatonin - Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced and secreted by the pineal gland, a tiny organ in the brain. Melatonin is responsible for regulating the biological rhythms in humans and is an effective aid to alleviate insomnia.

It is also a very powerful antioxidant. One well-known nutritionist has stated that melatonin is "one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered - with a greater range of effectiveness than vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta-carotene..." Another respected nutritionist writes, "melatonin neutralizes one of the most damaging free radicals, and does so five times more effectively than the antioxidant enzyme glutathione..." Due to its antioxidant benefits melatonin has been shown to be a powerful immune system stimulator, with the potential for helping to prevent certain cancers.

5-HTP (5-Hydroxy tryptophan) - 5-HTP is isolated from the seed of a plant called Griffonia simplicifolia and is a natural precursor of the hormone serotonin that, along with melatonin and valerian, helps to counteract insomnia. Along with melatonin, 5-HTP can also help enhance the release of growth hormone during sleep. In addition, several other low-serotonin-level conditions such as carbohydrate craving, nervous tension, and insomnia induced anxiety may be offset by the use of 5-HTP:

  • Depression
  • Carbohydrate craving
  • Tension and Migraine headaches
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
Magnesium (as Amino Acid Chelate) - Of the many roles magnesium plays in the body, one of the primary benefits for aiding sleep is that it helps the muscles to relax. Along with the valerian component in REM Caps, magnesium can provide real benefits for anyone suffering from night cramping.

Enzyme Enhancement System™ - (proprietary blend of protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase, phytase) The aging process can deplete/diminish the amounts of digestive enzymes the body produces. Adding enzymes to products works with the body, replenishing what it no longer can provide, and help a person absorb and assimilate the maximal amount possible


Extra Benefits:
One of REM Caps' components, Melatonin, in addition to being a powerful, yet safe sleep agent, is considered by many experts to be one of the most potent antioxidants ever discovered.


The capsules may have a slight odor due to the natural odors emitted from the Valerian Root Extract, which has the smell of a plant root just after it is pulled out of the ground. The product has in no way been compromised and is perfectly safe for consumption.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well. I have never left a review before, but I had to with this product. I didn't expect it to work so well. I have actually only been taking one capsule at a time as I am usually very sensitive to anything I take. I do not feel groggy in the mornings, but have had much more solid, sound sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I had no idea how much I'd love this product when ordering it for the first time. I can't stop recommending or buying it for friends and family. Everyone that tries it has had the same response as I did, "Amazing"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, works every time I bought these supplements to help get over jet lag while competing. Worked perfectly. I also use them when I am stressed the night before a big race. Would recommend to anyone - athletes and recreational users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the Real Deal Sleep is something that I have been focusing on improving and I have tried teas, rumored liquid mixes such as the vinegar and honey trick before bed, and this is the first item that really works for me. Best part, if I stop taking it my sleep pattern still stay improved as now I'm getting to bed at a scheduled time - this is unlike other products I've tried. When I travel, I travel a lot, REM Caps are in my bag. When I'm having trouble sleeping these do the trick nicely. Thanks Hammer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seem to work as advertised I've been using Rem Caps for some time and they provide sound sleep with no after effects. I wake up feeling refreshed and not groggy as can happen with other compounds of this type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REM Caps are great Purchased after a buddy of mine recommended it -- I sleep better and feel refreshed in the morning. Taken with Whey before sleeping, it greatly helps with muscle recovery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Safe Sleep With No Grogginess I've been using this for about six months mainly because I did not want to take over-the-counter sleep aids. I trust Hammer Nutrition and the did NOT let me down. Taken as directed, I relax into a normal sleep. If I wake up, I can fall back asleep within minutes for a full night's sleep. In the morning I feel completely rested without medication hangover I get with OTC sleep aids. Outstanding product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get Your REM On! I started using REM CAPS a year ago. I was training close to bedtime and had a hard time falling asleep. Using 1-2 capsules 15 minutes prior to bedtime helps me relax and rest well. Sleep is an important part of recovery. REM CAPS help me to get the sleep I need. I never feel groggy in the morning. I wake up refreshed and ready to go. Get your REM on and get the quality of sleep you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get the rest you need to recover right! During the summer months, I struggle to get to be early enough to get enough sleep to support my training. Hammer's REM Caps provide a natural way to fall asleep and stay asleep! The compounds support my body's recovery process, too, so I'm making even better use of the time I'm asleep! Unlike other sleep aids, I don't wake up groggy — even if I've only had 6 hours of sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Trick! I've used REM Caps now for about 3 weeks -- and this combo of melatonin, tryptophan and Valerian Root really works. The first time I took two caps, which gave me a woozy feeling. However, now I take one cap an hour before I want to sleep and I sleep very well - at least 6 hours straight through. Feel good when I wake up. I'm glad I found this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually WORKS!! Have been using this product for over a week and it works! Finally, a sleep aid that delivers. I tried two the first night and when it hit, I had to get to bed right away, so I suggest starting with a single dose and seeing if you need to go up first. I have been sleeping well every night, without feeling groggy the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good night! I've been using REM Caps for a couple if years now and anytime I go to bed with pre race nerves, or post workout buzz, Rem Caps help me fall asleep within the hour in a gentle nod-off. I feel rested and ready for race day when I awake, with no grogginess. It is so nice to find a product that works naturally, not chemically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sleep I rely on REM Caps when I need quality sleep. Especially, following hard training when sore muscles can interrupt sleep cycles or if I don't have many hours between bedtime and the alarm clock.
