    Has anyone experience insomnia during their first week? Was planning to get up and go to the gym this morning but didn’t fall asleep until 3AM (ugh). Just wondering if this could be the drops (I took my last dose of metabolic burst at 7PM last night) or if it’s just stress 🙂

    I have noticed I am clenching my teeth all day long and wondered if there is some stimulant in the drops. As a result I am sure to take my 3rd drops by 6 pm. I already have eanough trouble sleeping! I also take the vitamin b in the am as it stimulates as well. I skipped the b yesterday to see if I was less tense, but still same so will do daily. It could be just adapting to the program I hope and it will improve by week 2. Another thing I do at night which is when I do the most damage to my good days, is instead of snacking, I am making myself a cup of my favourite camomile citrus tea. It keeps me busy and helps with sleep. Maybe give that a try and will pass.

    Thanks so much Janice! Camomile is great idea to help wind down. I’ve slept better the last two nights – but I had to get up at 4AM yesterday and by last night I was exhausted. May have just been stress but I’m definitely going to try the tea.



    Hi Janice,

    There should be no stimulants- so do watch how you are feeling and keep us posted here 🙂

    Ingredients/ Metabolic Burst:

    Maca is a Peruvian root known to improve energy and stamina, improve the quality of sleep, and reduce stress. It contains many fatty acids, minerals and vitamins, such as calcium, magnesium, silica, amino acids, antioxidants, alkaloids and sterols. Maca can be an aid in any diet.


    Glucomannan is viscous dietary fiber derived from the root of Amorphophallus konjac. When consumed, it absorbs water in the digestive tract, reducing absorption of carbohydrates, supporting the use of glucomannan for cholesterol reduction, diabetes, and weight loss.


    Beta-Alanine is a natural occurring beta amino acid that promotes high energy levels and increases endurance. Beta-Alanine has been shown to help increase strength and reduce body fat.


    Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in muscles. It helps build and maintain muscle tissue, and it also helps prevent muscle wasting, decreases sugar cravings, and the desire for alcohol.


    Ornithine helps to prompt the release of growth hormones that promote the metabolism of excess body fat (this effect is enhanced if combined with Arginine).


    Serine is needed for the proper metabolism of fats and fatty acids, the growth of muscle, and the maintenance of a healthy immune system.


    Glutamic acid is an excitatory neurotransmitter for the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord; it is important in the metabolism of sugars and fats.

    Vitamin B6

    Our Vitamin B6 is derived from Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate (P-5-P) and is five times more absorbable than other B6’s. B6 is required for proper absorption of vitamin B12.


    Rhodiola, more commonly known as goldenrod, is a plant that is known to improve physical and mental performance, reduce fatigue, enhance mood, and improve endurance. Rhodiola is also known for helping strengthen the nervous system, enhance memory, and aid weight reduction.


    Arginine aids in weight loss, as it facilitates an increase in muscle mass and a reduction of body fat. It also assists the release of growth hormones, which is crucial for “optimal” muscle growth and tissue repair.

    African Mango

    African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis) enhances the activity of the hormone Leptin that plays a crucial role in controlling appetite and optimizing metabolism.


    Glycine retards muscle degeneration, and it also improves glycogen storage freeing up glucose for energy needs.


    Valine is needed for muscle metabolism and coordination, tissue repair, and for the maintenance of proper nitrogen balance in the body. It is used as an energy source by muscle tissue.


    Tyrosine is important to overall metabolism, and it is a precursor of adrenaline and dopamine, which regulate mood and stimulate metabolism and the nervous system. It also acts as a mood elevator, suppresses the appetite, and helps reduce body fat.

    Methyl B12

    Methyl B12 is derived from methylcobalamin and has a much higher bioavailability than cyanocobalamin — the form most widely available in supplements.


    Potassium is essential for proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system.

    Niacin (Vitamin B3)

    Niacin (Vitamin B3) is known to help produce hormones that are beneficial to the body. Niacin helps to improve circulation and reduce cholesterols, and is important to the health of the nervous system, digestive system, skin, eyes, and hair.

    Vitamin E

    Vitamin E is added, as the conversion of B-12 into its biologically active form requires vitamin E.

    You changed how you eat. Less sugar and withdrawals can cause sleeplessness. If it continues add Vitamin D in the am and also magnesium may help.
    Curious if it has passed? Are you sleeping better now?
    And yes stress is an awful sleep deterant.
