We’ve all been there: 3 PM, guzzling down that third cup of coffee and praying it’ll kick in enough to make up for the insomniac hours spent binge-watching Black Mirror.
I didn’t realize how problematic my sleeping pattern was until I hit my late twenties. The issue is, it wasn’t an issue until those late nights started catching up with me—but at that point, my sleep cycle was beyond repair.
So about a month ago, when my sister mentioned she’s been clocking eight hours a night because of a tasty chocolate drink called Beam Dream, I was interested.
I normally take everything my sister tells me with a grain of salt, but when I learned that Beam—the wellness company behind this so-called “miracle worker”—is backed by auto-racing queen Danica Patrick and 5x Crossfit games winner, Mat Fraser, I knew she was on to something. Dream has even grown a fan following from Tia Booth and recently released a custom collab with the brand.
Beam Dream is made with a blend of Nano Hemp, Magnesium, L-Theanine, Melatonin, and Reishi Mushroom extract, along with other ingredients that help regulate pain, mood, anxiety, and inflammation. It’s third-party lab tested, gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and contains no added sugar—and according to the 3,000+ rave reviews, it tastes freaking fantastic and knocks you TF out.
Editor’s Note: Can’t decide which flavor you want? Beam just launched a variety of exciting new Dream flavors, now up to 30% off! Run, don’t walk…🏃♀️
Obviously, I had to see what the hype was about. A month in, I can confirm that this stuff has me sleeping like a baby. Here’s why I’m hooked on Beam Dream:
1. It Tastes Like a Decadent Dessert
Those who know me know that I have a massive sweet tooth. Now that I’ve started incorporating Beam Dream into my evenings, I’m no longer reaching for that pint of Ben & Jerry’s at 10 PM. Instead, I make myself a dreamy hot chocolate by blending a scoop of Beam Dream into 8 ounces of warm oat milk.
The original flavor is rich and chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon, but Beam has a ton of other flavors on their website. I’ve been eyeing the Sea Salt Caramel flavor, while my sister can’t get enough of the Chocolate Raspberry.
2. It’s The New Start to My Bedtime Routine
Until I started using Beam Dream, I never really had a “nighttime routine.” Sure, I’d brush my teeth and get ready for bed, but then I’d get stuck in the TikTok doom scroll. Now, I make my nightly hot chocolate a priority, and it’s helped me carve out space for myself.
Taking a moment to savor the taste calms my overactive brain as I lightly stretch before crawling under the covers. Then within 30 minutes, I’m out like a light.
3. Now I Fall Asleep and Stay Asleep
Beam Dream has become as essential to my sleep as my pillows. I used to find wake up during the night, but now I stay blissfully conked out all night long. Like, you could send a Mardi Gras parade through my room and I’d still be cruising in REM.
And the best part is: I wake up the next morning feeling like a trillion bucks, and without that weird “I took a sleeping supplement hangover” feeling.
4. Pro Athletes Use It to Aid Recovery
It’s no shock that Beam Dream was developed by pro athletes and is trusted by top names in the wellness industry. Every time I use it, I wake up with my muscles feeling refreshed and as ready as they can be to crush an early-bird Soul Cycle class.
I recently started wearing an Apple Watch to track my sleep and recovery, and I’ve noticed my scores increase on nights I drink my Beam Dream and get a solid night’s rest.
5. Great Sleep = Mood and Productivity Boost
The best thing about Beam Dream and (actually) sleeping great, is how refreshed I feel in the morning. A great night of sleep has me ready to turn my mental switch “on” by sunrise. My coworkers have even mentioned that I seem particularly caffeinated on morning Zoom calls, but truthfully, my coffee consumption is way down.
In short, if you’re looking for better sleep, better recovery, a better state of mind, or all of the above, give Beam Dream a shot. You’ll be dreaming before you know it.
