I’ve had a fair amount of people write to me lately and ask me what I think about the product Resurge that’s promoted as a sort of miracle for getting better sleep, losing weight and being healthier. This is supposed to happen all by taking a pill before you go to bed at night.

So, I decided to dig in past their fancy sales page and slick video and find out:

  1. If the Resurge supplement is safe
  2. If the Resurge supplement works

Now, keep in mind, I’m not a doctor. I can’t give medical advice and I can’t guarantee results. But I will give you my HONEST take on the supplement and if I think it works.

What Are the Ingredients in Resurge?

I think this is an important question to ask before digging into the product and it’s weirdly missing from the Resurge sales page. Because if you don’t know the ingredients, how can you possibly understand if it does what it claims it does?

But… the AP (Associated Press) reports that Resurge Ingredients include arginine, lysine, theanine, ashwagandha, hydroxytryptophan, magnesium, zinc, and melatonin.

The good news is that all of these ingredients are considered safe (unless you are allergic to one of them) and are known to help promote deep and restful sleep.

I particularly like the inclusion of magnesium in the ingredient list. Most people are deficient in magnesium and supplementing with magnesium can help alleviate muscle pain and stiffness as well as help you sleep better.

Resurge for Weight Loss

One of the main claims that Resurge makes is “by naturally optimizing your deep sleep cycles, you can look forward to waking leaner, healthier, younger and way more energized version of yourself.”

They claim this can happen without having to alter your lifestyle or diet or exercise.

As you might know, I’m a big fan of physical fitness (surprise!). So, I balk at the idea of not needing exercise. But… there is quite a bit of research that shows that regular, quality sleep CAN be effective at maintaining or losing weight.

Here is a study that links getting high-quality sleep to the regulation of the hormone leptin.

The basics are that if your leptin levels are properly regulated through getting enough deep sleep that your body will have an easier time regulating metabolism and stress hormones.

Another report shows that the deep wave sleep that Resurge is supposed to produce helps improve health and increase lifespan.

Because the ingredients in Resurge do promote healthy and deep sleep, the result could be a much better regulated metabolism and make it easier to lose weight.

However, everybody’s body chemistry differs. So even though the ingredients SHOULD work to give you a better night’s sleep and help you to lose weight and feel good – sometimes they don’t.

But this combination of ingredients DOES work for most people.

Resurge for Deep Sleep

I’ve already mentioned magnesium, but I’d like to take a look at the other ingredients in Resurge because they all promote deep sleep.


Arginine is an amino acid that has been shown in studies to increase slow wave or deep sleep in rats. Many people report that it has a deep calming effect.

Administration of L-arginine or SIN-1 during the dark phase significantly increased slow wave sleep and reduced waking during the first 4 h of the recording period. 



Lysine is another amino acid that promotes long and healthy sleep. Studies show that it can help prolong sleep so that you can get more rest.

The sleep prolonging effect of lysine, therefore, may be a direct action of lysine, or the metabolite(s) derived invivo from lysine, on the central nervous system.



Theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves. It promotes relaxation and good sleep by elevating GABA levels and lowering “excitatory” brain chemicals.

Ashwangandha is a root extract and can help with both anxiety and sleep.

This one has a little less scientific backing. But if you’ve ever felt tired after eating turkey, then you know the effect of tryptophan on your system. It makes you sleepy! Hydroxytryptophan is a form they can put into pills.

Magnesium is well known to promote high-quality sleep, in fact, sometimes a magnesium supplement alone can be enough to give you better sleep.

Zinc is well studied as a sleep modulator. It can help you to get better and deeper sleep.

Nearly everyone knows about melatonin and its ability to make you sleepy. I’m glad to see that it’s a low dose in this supplement (10 mg) because for some people it has a “bounce-back effect” when the dose is too high.

The bottom line here is that the Resurge deep sleep supplement contains a blend of ingredients that for most people work extremely well to promote deeper sleep.

Note: If you were to buy all of these supplements individually the cost would add up quickly. A huge advantage of Resurge is that all of these ingredients are put together in a single pill… at a much lower cost.

Resurge Guarantee

One of the things I like about Resurge is their guarantee. If you’re on the fence about trying this product, then this can give you some assurance.

Resurge is sold through the Clickbank marketplace, which sells millions of dollars worth of products every year. They take the policies of their vendors seriously and if you buy through their system you KNOW you are protected.

Because of that, you can be sure that the Resurge 60-day guarantee is legit. They give you a full 60-day guarantee and you don’t need a reason. Just email them and they will refund your purchase.

Resurge Alternative

To the best of my knowledge, there is no other supplement on the market that blends these sleep-promoting ingredients in quite the same way.

Some people, however, get excellent results with a magnesium fizz.

One note of caution about taking magnesium on its own. In Resurge the dose is small enough not to cause problems. But if you take a magnesium fizz before bed you should start with the smallest dose and work your way up. Too much can cause diarrhea. If that happens, just scale back the dose.

Is Resurge a Legitimate Product?

With the slick sales page and all the hype around Resurge, it’s understandable that people think it’s a shady product.

The ingredients are legit for promoting deep sleep and deep sleep is directly linked to weight loss, muscle growth, and overall better health.

So, I would say that it’s worth a try. I would go for the largest pack, which gets you the best price and gives you a real chance to see if it works. You will probably be pleasantly surprised at the results.
