Below we take an in-depth look into Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support, to see whether this combination of probiotics and herbal sleep aids can effectively solve these twin issues.w
Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support is an unusual product that claims to support healthy digestion and a restful night’s sleep. Each capsule contains healthy probiotic bacteria mixed with herbal relaxation aids, supposedly providing an unusual sense of sleepiness mixed with digestive relief. The manufacturer advises taking each capsule shortly before bedtime.
The herbal sleep ingredients used in this product could cause some side effects, including headaches, short-term feelings of depression, daytime sleepiness, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability. Customers should also expect to feel groggy in the morning whilst taking this product.
By contrast, the probiotic ingredients shouldn’t cause many issues, although there may be short-term issues such as diarrhoea, bloating, and gas. Probiotic side effects normally fade within a few days of use.
Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support is extremely expensive. On the official Peptiva Probiotics website, a 30-day pack costs $59.99 plus $4.99 in shipping. The price is exactly the same from Amazon and GNC, although Healthy Directions offers the slightly lower price of $47.99 when signing up to their auto-ship program.
Although this product is novel in the way it combines two very different sets of benefits, the actual execution is badly lacking in quality.
Although the probiotic part of this product works well, the “sleep support” formulation appears to be relatively ineffective. Most of the product’s negative reviews claim that they failed to sleep whilst using this product. When you consider the extraordinarily high price of each pack, this essentially makes this supplement little more than a needlessly expensive probiotic (which can normally be obtained for a fraction of the cost).
In addition, more than 50% of the reviews on Amazon have been faked according to the review-checking service at FakeSpot. It appears that the failure to provide a restful sleep has proven unpopular with customers, and the manufacturer seems to have dealt with the problem by simply faking reviews.
Overall, customers can easily find separate probiotic supplements and herbal sleep supplements that will cost less together than this product costs on its own. The gimmick may have been intriguing, but this has to be regarded as a waste of money.

Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support is a supplement that claims to provide customers with a relaxing and restful sleep, whilst also providing them with a source of healthy gut bacteria. The manufacturers claim that the benefits experienced by taking probiotics can be amplified when taken before sleep, making this product more effective than other competing probiotic option.
Each pack is manufactured by Peptiva Probiotics, who are based in Utah, USA. Peptiva only produces three products at the time of writing, with all three being relatively similar probiotic supplements. The company claims to draw from the expertise of an expert called Dr David Katz whilst designing their products, who is also notable for being the Director and Co-Founder of the Yale Prevention Research Center. Although Dr Katz is also noted for his anti-obesity advice, TV appearances, and think pieces on sites like the Huffington Post, he is also accumulating a growing reputation for promoting unscientific and unsupported ideas, as well as for publicly defending controversial media outlets like Natural News and Dr Oz.
The directions for use are as follows:
Peptiva Probiotics can be contacted via the details supplied on their official website.
Probiotic supplements are designed to provide the body with a source of “friendly” gut bacteria as a way of improving overall digestive health. The manufacturers behind this product claim that night-time “is the perfect time for your body to renew itself”, and so have combined a probiotic product with ingredients that are said to provide relaxation and a more restful sleep.
According to the Amazon page, the list of benefits that customers are told to expect include digestive regularity, more comfortable bowel movements, reduced bloating/discomfort, reduced stress, physical relaxation, and easier sleep. It also claims to improve “quality of life”.
Like many other probiotic manufacturers, Peptiva claims that their product has a capsule delivery system that provides customers with the maximum CFU count advertised on the pack (meaning that the live bacteria cultures will not die off before they reach the intestines).
Probiotic supplements really are effective at improving the functioning of the digestive system and reducing bloating/discomfort. With a CFU count of 25 billion, this varied probiotic mix likely delivers on its digestive promises, such as improving regularity.
However, the sleep support aspect of this product appears to be far more problematic. Herbal sleep aids seem to be a tough mixture to get right, and this product may have gotten it wrong in terms of ingredient balance. The majority of negative reviews for this supplement are related to the sleep support function not working. In addition, the manufacturer’s claims that probiotic benefits work “better” at night is little more than a gimmicky bluff.
The ingredients found in Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support are listed below. The quantities listed are correct for 1 capsule.
Probiotic supplements are not known for having particularly bad side effects, although some customers may experience some temporary mild annoyances. In some cases, probiotic users have experienced diarrhoea, gas, bloating, and stomach upset for the first couple of days after use. Miscellaneous allergic reactions are also possible in very rare cases.
More serious side effects can emerge due to the sleep aid ingredients. Melatonin can cause some side effects including headache, short-term feelings of depression, daytime sleepiness, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability. Do not drive or use machinery for four to five hours after taking melatonin.
Potential side effects of Valerian root include headache, excitability, uneasiness, and even insomnia in some people. A few people feel sluggish in the morning after taking valerian, especially at higher doses.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
On the Amazon product page, the reviews appear to be generally positive (although many customers have complaints). However, we checked the reliability of the review section on FakeSpot and discovered that more than half of the reviews posted to Amazon have been faked via auto-generated accounts, affiliated reviewers and other techniques. After removing the fakes, it appears that the reaction to Peptiva Probiotics + Sleep Support has been largely negative, with most customers finding the sleep aid mechanism to be ineffective.
For the price, about $2/pill, I expected better results. Peptiva seems to work very well for my gut, but does nothing for my sleep. I take it about an hour before I go to bed to give it a chance to get into my system. Nothing, my sleep has no improved AT ALL
I’m trying to give this product a good try but it’s just not doing the job I need it to. It doesn’t make me sleep fast but I feel groggy. I don’t stay a sleep once sleeping, waking up @ 3:00 then every hour. It’s too expensive to not keep taking but the otc brands work better for a lot less, it’s the groggy morning feeling that makes taking them a bummer.
I am a chronic insomniac, and have tried many products for sleep. This is the first thing I’ve found that works consistently to help me sleep after almost a month of taking every night. The probiotics are great too, helping my digestive issues. Pricey, but it works for me!
