The 30 Second Bedtime Ritual
That Gives Your Deep, Restorative
Night After Night

By using Somnium Nighttime GABA Cream for just 30 seconds a night, you can experience:

  • Vivid dreams
  • Deeper, rejuvenating sleep
  • And energetic mornings

Simpy massage a pea sized amount into your temples and the back of your ears before you go to bed.

The ingredients in this cream work together to relax your body.

Transdermal Liposomal GABA

GABA is Gamma-Aminobutyric acid.

GABA is responsible for regulating your
memory and mood, but most importantly…

It regulates your sleep.

It moves your brain and body into lower gear, allowing you to unwind and relax for a rejuvenating, deep sleep.

Most people with sleep problems don’t have enough GABA in their brains. (4)

Now, there are many GABA supplements on the market…

But there’s just one problem.

Oral GABA isn’t effective. (7)

That’s because GABA in pill form has to jump over a lot of hurdles to actually work - namely, your digestive tract.

GABA in pill form simply doesn’t cross your blood-brain barrier.

But when you combine GABA with Chondroitin Sulfate… something amazing happens.

Bioactive Fermented
Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin Sulfate is a type of sugar that people use
for joint pain. It’s known for having powerful
anti-inflammatory effects, and being able
to cross the blood brain barrier.

It usually comes from animal cartilage.

But the problem with animal derived Chondroitin Sulfate is that it’s only 90% pure…

And manufacturers allow heavy metal contamination up to 10%.

So Dr Christine Schaffner and her team put together a never seen before type of Chondroitin Sulfate that’s made from microbial fermentation - NO animals needed.

The patented procedure leads to Chondroitin Sulfate that is 99% pure.

Now individually, GABA and Chondroitin Sulfate have their respective health benefits.

But when you combine these
2 compounds, something
AMAZING happens...

You might’ve heard the phrase, 'your skin is the antenna of your body'. (27)

It’s a fancy way of saying that your skin absorbs everything.

Now, Dr Christine Schaffner could’ve put together a run-of-the-mill nighttime blend in pill-form.

But she knew that GABA in pill form doesn’t work.

She also knew that the best way to bypass the blood brain barrier is through your skin.

So Dr Christine Schaffner and her team combined a potent dose of GABA with 99% pure Chondroitin Sulfate...

Because when you combine the 2 compounds...

The absorption happens faster than with any other GABA cream on the market...

And since Chondroitin Sulfate is known to pass the blood brain barrier...

It’s as if the GABA has hopped on a super-highway straight to your brain.

The potent combination of GABA and Microbial Fermented Chondroitin Sulfate led to the development of a topical liposomal named...

about Somnium

"I was waiting to share until I had more than one great night’s sleep after using Somnium Nighttime Gaba Cream. I now have had several nights of deep sleep and the only thing I changed was the sleep cream. It had been years since I slept straight through 7 - 8 hours. I feel SO rested when I get up. Wow!!"

- Candace L. 60

“It works! I LOVE gaba and am familiar with how it feels. It's especially nice to be able to get it in cream form. I've been sleeping much more deeply.”

- Jaya

“I don’t know how it works but I started sleeping really good, falling asleep a lot faster, and having cool dreams too.”

Helps me fall asleep so much quicker.

Doesn’t work

Super disappointed that it didn’t help me with my deep sleep.

Melvin H.

Definitely works. It is subtle but not overpowering. I don't really feel anything and then all of a sudden I am asleep and sleep great through the night. It is more subtle than strong. If you are having a big cortisol release or experiencing anxiety then this product won't get you to sleep but if you want to enhance your sleep then this product is perfect.

Found other GABA products that worked better for me.

I was very hopeful after hearing an online interview about this and the lymph product from this company. Neither one was particularly effective for me and they sure were expensive. Hope others have better experiences.

I'm sorry this was not helpful for you! Feel free to contact us at if you have any further questions or would like tips or instructions for use. We apologize that the product was not as effective as expected and wish you the best on finding a solution that works for you.

All the best,
The Ipothecary Team

It really works!

I was skeptical, but it works. The first time I tried it. I slept much better. The 2 nights since then, that I forgot to use it I had difficulty falling asleep. I'm hooked.
