Around here, we're big fans of sleep. Nothing quite cures what ails you and adjusts the attitude (for the better) as well as a solid eight hours of sack time. Our go-to soporific at Herbalogic is not, as one might imagine, watching bales of exotic herbs steep in their hermetically sealed vats, but rather the ever-popular, snooze-inducing concoction referred to—until now—as Deep Sleeper.
That same Chinese herbal formula, deemed near perfect in so many other respects, was introduced to the world with one minor and unknown defect: it carried a moniker that too closely resembled that of another, trademarked sleep aid. For this unfortunate condition we are happy to announce a remedy has been found.
Please celebrate the debut of Solid Eight, the alter ego and new public handle of the natural sleep formula many rely on to coax a reluctant Sandman near. If you see Solid Eight in the insomnia section of your health store or pharmacy, rest assured it is the exact same formulation as its predecessor. (Just look for the blue label, and you can't go wrong.)
We really like the new name, perhaps even more than the last. In fact, we like it almost as much as we like sleep itself. We hope you do to.
It's tempting to use the untimely demise of Deep Sleeper to trot out the metaphors and clichés—“Deep Sleeper sleeps with the fishes” and “It's The Big Sleep for Deep Sleeper” leap to mind—but we'll try to restrain ourselves and just say simply, “Rest in peace, Deep Sleeper. And long live Solid Eight.”
