We will be having an in-depth look at Olympus Labs AMNES1A, to see if it really does help you to drift off without any side effects, and to decide whether it is safe to take.
Olympus Labs AMNES1A is described as a multifaceted sleep aid with unique and innovative ingredients, with no withdrawals or unwanted side effects.
It uses ingredients known for promoting sleep and improving mood; such as magnesium, valerian, lemon balm, passionflower extract, and melatonin.
It is manufactured by Olympus Labs, a US company based in New Jersey. The brand tells a tale of Greek mythology to describe how their products began, and claim that their products turn men into demigods! They sell a large number of supplements, as well as accessories and their own branded apparel.
There are some ingredients found in Olympus Labs AMNES1A that can cause a range of side effects.
Potential side effects of Valerian root include headache, excitability, uneasiness, and even insomnia in some people. Some people feel sluggish in the morning after taking valerian, especially at higher doses.
Melatonin can cause some side effects including headache, short-term feelings of depression, daytime sleepiness, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability.
Passionflower extract can cause side effects including dizziness, confusion, irregular muscle action and coordination, altered consciousness, and inflamed blood vessels.
Lemon balm (or Melissa officinalis) is known to be safe when it is taken short-term, up to 4 months. However, not enough is known about the safety of lemon balm when used long-term. It can still cause some side effects, including increased appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dizziness, and wheezing.
Olympus Labs AMNES1A costs $48.99 for 120 capsules, which is a 30-day supply if the full dose is taken.
At the time of writing the product is also available on US Amazon for $34.99 plus shipping costs.
Olympus Labs AMNES1A contains a number of ingredients that are supposed to help improve sleep and help you to relax, however there isn’t a lot of scientific evidence to back them up and some of the doses may be too low. Some of the ingredients, such as L-Theanine, are more related to mood and relaxation rather than sleep.
Valerian root and melatonin are well-known sleep aids, so this product could cause the user to relax and have a better sleep.
Many studies have shown that valerian can reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, and improve sleep quality. The recommended dosage for this to be effective is 400-900mg, and this supplement contains 450mg in a full daily dose, which is on the low side so it may not have the desired effect. Especially as continuous use of valerian for up to four weeks is also recommended so that it has a noticeable effect, but long-term use of sleep aids is not recommended.
Melissa officinalis or lemon balm has been found to improve the length and quality of sleep in both healthy people and those with insomnia or sleeping disorders. Research has also found that it can reduce anxiety. Therefore this should be a good addition to this supplement, however it does seem that the dosage taken daily may be too low to have much of an effect.
We cannot work out why Saccharomyces Cerevisiae is included in this sleep aid, and there is no mention of why it has been included in the product information.
L-Theanine has only been deemed safe for short-term use and it is not known if longer periods of use would be safe, so this supplement shouldn’t be taken long-term until more is known about it. Also, L-Theanine is usually used alongside caffeine to prevent side effects such as jitters, but there is obviously no caffeine in this sleep product.
A few of the ingredients, such as L-Theanine and magnesium are likely to help a consumer to feel less anxious or stressed. This could, in turn, help them to drift off to sleep slightly quicker.
However, due to a lack of scientific evidence on some of the ingredients, as well as low dosages and the lack of money-back guarantee, we do not recommend Olympus Labs AMNES1A to our readers.

Although we all suffer from insomnia sometimes, long-term sleep deprivation can cause many problems in daily life. It can also cause weight gain and numerous health problems such as high blood pressure and heart failure, as well as raising levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Olympus Labs AMNES1A contains mainly herbal ingredients which are well known for promoting sleep. These include valerian, lemon balm and passionflower. It also contains amino acids and melatonin – a synthetic version of the hormone important for regulating sleep patterns. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that reaches the brain following oral ingestion. It is known to be a relaxing agent without sedation, and it can also reduce the perception of stress and slightly improve attention. It is not a great sleep aid, although it may very slightly help. L-Theanine’s effects on mood do not appear to occur when used by people who are anxious.
Magnesium is a good addition to this supplement. Insomnia is a common symptom of magnesium deficiency as well as restless sleep and waking frequently during the night. Magnesium also increases the levels of GABA in the body which encourages relaxation, and it can also help with improving mood. AMNES1A has 133mg of magnesium in 4 capsules which is a relatively good dose to take each day.
Sceletium tortuosum (here as KannaEase) has shown promise in reducing state anxiety (the increase in anxiety experienced during a high-stress event) as well as it potentially offering antidepressive effects. However, there is currently not enough evidence to support this. Limited evidence does not suggest any improvement in cognitive performance such as memory.

Olympus Labs AMNES1A claims to be a multifaceted sleep aid that allows you to sleep like a demigod or demigoddess, with no withdrawal symptoms or unwanted side effects.
They say it boosts sleep quality and helps with muscle recovery and growth.
We think Olympus Labs AMNES1A is unlikely to have the claimed effects. Some of the ingredients such as valerian, melatonin and magnesium could have an effect on sleep, but it is likely that a consumer would need to take the product for a while to have this effect. This is not generally advised with a sleep aid, especially one containing L-Theanine, which has only currently been deemed safe for short-term use. As well as this, some of the levels of ingredients that could help, such as lemon balm, are probably too low.
It is possible that it could help with people’s mood and encourage relaxation, due to the L-Theanine and magnesium. Becoming less stressed in general can help with having a better nights sleep, but it wouldn’t sort out any sleep problems by itself.
