The ingredients in Benenox Overnight Recharge help to:
• Reduce tiredness and fatigue
• Support your mental function
• Maintain normal energy production

What are the benefits of each ingredient?

Honey is well known for its health benefits, and its mix of natural sugars is believed to help boost glycogen stores in the liver to use during the night.


Sustamine® is a combination of two amino acids, L-Alanine and L-Glutamine, which help the liver to store glycogen by slowing absorption of honey in the stomach.


Vitamin B6 has been shown to reduce tiredness and fatigue while supporting psychological function, helping you feel more energised so you can perform at your best.

What has my liver got to do with sleep?

During sleep the body is very active, carrying out complex restorative functions. To do this, the body needs enough energy in the form of glycogen, which is stored in the liver, to last throughout fasting hours when food isn’t being consumed. If these glycogen stores run out, the liver sends stress signals to the brain in the form of the hormone cortisol, alerting it to wake up until sufficient levels are restored. This process can result in broken sleep, which you may not even be aware of, but can often leave you feeling tired and lacking in energy the following day.

Can’t I just have dinner later?

Studies suggest that eating late at night is not a good time for effective digestion and could be detrimental to your health, including the risk of a heart attack or stroke. In addition, research found it can also lead to weight gain by causing you to feel hungrier than usual when you wake up so you’re more likely to eat more the following day. This happens because while eating, insulin is released producing more glucose. This triggers the hunger hormone ‘ghrelin’ to respond, when it should be resetting and rebalancing hunger levels overnight, meaning you can feel hungrier when you wake up.

That being said, the body needs enough glycogen stores to repair the body overnight and these get depleted during the time we eat dinner to the point we go to sleep. Taking just 15ml of Benenox at bedtime restores the liver’s glycogen levels quickly and efficiently, helping to promote restful sleep and the body’s recovery process.

Does Benenox have a similar mode of action to a sleeping tablet?

Unlike sleep aids, Benenox does not work on the brain to promote drowsiness, rather it focuses on the energy supply produced and stored in the liver. The ingredients in Benenox Overnight Recharge work together to replenish glycogen stores in the liver before you go to sleep, which ensures the body has sufficient energy during the night to function, helping you to sleep more soundly and wake up feeling fully recharged and energised.

Can I take sleeping tablets with the product?

It is advisable to speak to a healthcare professional before taking any medication including sleeping tablets and flag any other medicines or supplements you may be taking to ensure they don’t cause interactions.

Can’t I just take herbal sleeping tablets?

Natural sleep aids such as lavender or valerian may provide relaxing and sedating effects to aid the process of getting to sleep, but this may not always improve the quality of the sleep you get during the night. Even if you’ve slept for eight hours solidly, you may still wake up feeling groggy and unrefreshed, because you may be tossing and turning without realising it. The quality of sleep is therefore just as important as the quantity, so ensuring you have enough of both may impact how well you can perform the following day. Benenox Overnight Recharge helps improve the quality of your sleep so you wake up feeling refreshed and energised.

How quickly does it take to work?

In a consumer study of 140 people*, participants started to report a noticeable improvement the first day after taking Benenox the night before. This reduction in tiredness continued throughout the week they were using Benenox but once the participants stopped taking the product, tiredness increased to levels consistent with the start of the study.

How will I notice that the quality of my sleep has improved?

If you currently wake up feeling tired and groggy, it could be because you have had a night of broken, poor quality sleep. By taking Benenox you are increasing the chances of promoting restful sleep throughout the night which should, in turn, mean you feel less tired come the morning and ready to take on the day.

Why am I always tired even though I go to bed early?

If you’re going to bed early but are often feeling tired when you wake up, it may be time to consider the quality of the sleep you’re getting. Low glycogen levels in your liver may be resulting in your body not being able to properly relax into restful sleep. This will result in stress hormones being sent to your brain which will wake you up intermittently through the night - you may not even be aware of this but you will wake up feeling tired and groggy. Benenox will improve the quality of your sleep, ensuring you wake feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.

Are there likely to be any side effects of the product?

Do not exceed the stated dose. Excessive consumption may product laxative effects. Not suitable for children under 12 years of age. Seek professional advice before using if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or suffer with allergies.

Will it affect the number of hours I can sleep?

The number of hours a person sleeps for will depend on the individual, but Benenox helps to encourage better quality sleep, so you are less likely to wake up during night as a result of depleted glycogen stores in the liver.

Is there anything similar on the market?

Benenox is unlike any other product on the market. Unlike traditional sleep aids or energy supplements which work separately, Benenox works at night to improve the quality of sleep, and boost energy and mental performance the following day.

How many doses are there in each bottle?

Each bottle of Benenox contains 135ml and includes 9 servings of 15ml.

Are there any clinical studies about the product or ingredients and how they work?

A three week consumer study* of 140 people who trialled Benenox for one week found that:

• 81% were pleased with the results
• 64% felt less tired the following morning
• 75% said that their quality of sleep was better when taking Benenox
• 76% said that their ability to concentrate was better when taking Benenox
• 76% said that their effectiveness at work/study was better

Will it help me wake up in the morning or will I feel drowsy?

During the three week consumer study participants tested their sleep quality without Benenox during week 1 and week 3 and with Benenox during week 2 (day 7 – 14). The results found that 64% felt less tired the following morning after taking Benenox, so you should find you wake up easier and feel more energised after taking it.

Will I be more tired if I stop taking Benenox?

As part of the consumer study, participants tested their sleep quality without Benenox during week 1 and week 3 and with Benenox during week 2 (day 7 – 14). Participants reported a noticeable improvement in their tiredness levels during the following day after taking Benenox the night before. This reduction in tiredness continued throughout the second week (up to day 14), but once the participants stopped taking the product in week three, tiredness increased to levels consistent with week one when they weren’t using Benenox.

How many calories and carbohydrates does 15ml of Benenox contain?

15ml of Benenox contains around 55 kcal and around 13.5g of carbohydrate (regardless of flavour). Benenox contains a natural source of carbohydrates which needs to be taken into account as part of a diabetic lifestyle.
