A container of 60 Alteril All Natural Sleep Aid bought directly from the manufacturer will cost $18.95. However, we found the product on several other online retail stores for between $15 and $19, so do shop around.
We were unable to find any information relating to a guarantee of this product from the manufacturer, which is concerning. If you purchase from another supplier, check out their returns policy in case you are dissatisfied with the product.
Alteril All Natural Sleep Aid Review – Conclusion
Alteril All Natural Sleep Aid contains several of the most promising natural ingredients to assist you to fall asleep – and stay asleep – and wake up in the morning without feeling groggy and hung-over.
However, we don’t believe the product should bill itself as “all natural” because it makes use of a fairly long list of decidedly unnatural ingredients in its manufacturing process, including Magnesium Stearate and Stearic Acid. While you might be hard pressed to find a supplement that doesn’t contain these ingredients, the fact is that they are controversial and becoming more so.
