Overview of Chaos and Pain Hypnos
Chaos and Pain was created to make hardcore supplements for the advanced user. These were aimed at those who were looking to gain muscle, work hard and use some of the most advanced supplements available on the market. Chaos and Pain realized that there was a need to create a line of products aimed at everyone else. This is where their Olympus Series comes in. Olympus Series is a line of supplements not deemed hardcore that you could find at your local GNC or Vitamin Shoppe.
Hynos from Chaos and Pain is a Sleep Aid found under the Olypus Series line. However, this might be the most hardcore supplement in the line with the use of Phenibut, a wonderful sleep agent. Hynos is the best tasting sleep aid we have ever taken, and it works wonders! Hypos can go head-to-head with the competition because it is a product that works awesome.
Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed Chaos and Pain Hypnos on five categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the ingredients used in the making of this sleep aid supplement. We look into each ingredients effective use and determine if it was a quality selection for the product.
We then look at effectiveness. This is generally an extension of the profile and dosage section. The higher quality ingredients used at proper dosages, the more effective that product will be.
After that, we tackle taste. Taste is judged on two parts. One, does it taste like the label name and two, how does it taste? The flavor we were able to test was Lemonberry Nectar.
Then we judge the sleep aid on mixability. The mixability test is how well does the powder dissolve in 8-12oz of water in a Blender Bottle.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, effectiveness, taste and mixability in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of sleep aid supplements on the market.
Hypnos starts out with Phenibut at 500mg. Compared to RedCon1’s Fade Out, this is 50% dosed to that. This isn’t a bad thing. There are no clinical research studies showing the optimal amount, but over-the-counter products contain anywhere from 250mg to 1g, which means 500mg is right in the middle. You want to be cautious with Phenibut. Too much can have adverse effects. Although we like Fade Out, 1g might be too much for most people. With 500mg you can adjust accordingly. Phenibut is typically used to treat stress and anxiety. It is a calming agent which helps you sleep.
Next Hypnos contains 500mg of GABA. Fade Out contains 1g, so again we are dosed at 50% of Fade Out. GABA helps metabolize growth hormone. As many of us know, growth hormone production is the highest when we sleep. Per Examine.com, the optimal levels of GABA per day are 3-5g. Although this is not clinically dosed, it still helps with the metabolism of GH.
ZMA is a commonly used supplement for sleep aid and it is a combination of zinc monomethionine/asparate and magnesium aspartate. Hynos contains both. Hypnos contains 250mg of Magnesium Aspartate (more than RedCon1) and 30mg of Zinc (more than RedCon1). Both of these ingredients have been proven to help muscle recovery and aiding in achieving REM.
Valerian Root Extract is also used at 200mg. This is a common ingredient used in sleep aids as well. This is frequently combined with Hops, which Hynos contains at 50mg. Hops are a sedative which helps you sleep.
L-Dopa is used at 50mg in Hynos too. L-Dopa is use to increase Dopamine levels in the body. This is a “feel good” agent. This reduces stress levels and allows us to relax and obtain peaceful sleep. Proper dosage varies depending on the goal Most people supplement with it during the day, at night you won’t need as much.
Passion Flower 10:1 is used at 30mg. Passion Flower is also used to treat sleep disorders like insomnia. Dosage varies but tablets of this are up to 90mg. At 30mg it it not as high as a tablet, but you’re also combining it with a lot of other sleep agents.
Lastly, you are getting 1.5mg of Melatonin. This is one of the most popular sleep aids on the market. I have seen this as high as 5mg. This is lower than others. Fade Out uses 5mg…but again 5mg might be too much for one person.
Overall I like this profile. It uses some different ingredients you don’t find in other sleep aids. Collectively they work well together.
I don’t typically have a hard time sleeping, but I do have a lot on my mind at times. Also, when I have had long days and I know I am only going to be getting 6 hours of sleep or so, I want that sleep to matter. Hynos put me into a deep sleep every time. Within 10-15 minutes of taking Hynos I was out.
We all wake up in the middle of the night to relieve ourselves in the bathroom. When you take Hynos you don’t. No, you don’t pee the bed, you just don’t wake up in the middle of the night. Hypnos does a great job of getting you to REM.
When you wake up in the morning you do not feel groggy. It takes a second to get out of bed, but once you do you feel refreshed and amazing. It helps aid in muscle recovery too so your body feels great.
Overall, this was one of my favorite sleep aids. It’s not too much, and it’s definitely not a little.
*Caution: Phenibut has some addictive tendencies, do not use every night.
Of all the sleep aids I have used, this was the best tasting one. We had Lemonberry Nectar and it was delicious. It tasted like candy. I could take this with water, or just straight and chase it with water, and it was awesome. You’ll love it.
On-top-of tasting fantastic, it mixed awesome as well. The particles are micronized so they dissolved into the water very nicely. Unlike other sleep aids, there is hardly any residue left behind.
Many sleep aids on the market are going to retail for around $1 per serving. That puts this at $40 for 40-servings. This is going to be a little more expensive than the competition. It also is dosed less on Phenibut and GABA. Yes, I said that was not a bad thing, but some people might want to get more bang for their buck on Phenibut. However, overall, the combination of all the ingredients makes this one helluva sleep aid that I really enjoy. If you can find this on sale (10-20% off) then it is one heck of a deal. You won’t regret it!
