Lunexia Review Summary
Lunexia is described as an “advanced natural sleep aid”. Well, it isn’t. It’s a proprietary blend full of cheap, ineffective garbage. Some of the ingredients are just obvious fillers – ingredients used to bulk out the formula, allowing the manufacturer to keep costs to a minimum. Proprietary blends should always be avoided at the best of times, but blatant fillers really seal the deal.
Lunexia does contain some effective sleep-inducing substances. Yet we have no idea how much we get per serving, and these ingredients do have minimum effective doses – we NEED enough for there to be any point taking them. The fact we aren’t told this information speaks volumes.

Detailed Lunexia Review
Lunexia is an extremely popular natural sleep supplement. It has been on the market for some time now, and it doesn’t seem to be disappearing any time soon. There have been plenty of Lunexia reviews done by third parties, but it’s always hard to know who you can trust. So, we’ve done our own independent Lunexia review.
First of all, what is this product supposed to do?
Who is it designed for?
If we look at the official website, we see that Lunexia is sold as “the secret to the best sleep of your life”. Sounds good to us!
More specifically, we’re told that Lunexia delivers the following key benefits:
- Promotes relaxation
- Enhances sleep quality
- Promotes a restful, deep sleep cycle
- Non-habit forming
This last benefit is incredibly important to us. Many products on the market today – particularly in the US – are effective at putting you to sleep, but they have sedating, intoxicating effects. They basically knock you out, and you wake up feeling groggy, disoriented, and sometimes even more tired than when you went to sleep.
Sadly, these products are also often habit forming. Because of their powerful narcotic nature they eventually get you hooked; you need them to sleep.
We hate those products.
So if Lunexia can help you get a more restful sleep and to develop a healthier sleeping pattern without sedating you, or getting you hooked, then we’ll have a great sleeping aid on our hands.
The question is, does Lunexia really work?
How safe is it? Is it definitely non-habit forming? Will it cause side effects?
How does it compare to the best sleep supplements on the market right now?
Let’s find out shall we? As always, we’ll begin our review with a close inspection of the formula. We’ll discuss the serving sizes, ingredient balancing, and side effects. If you get to the end and still have questions, please let us know in the comments section.
Lunexia Formula Analysis
Let’s examine the Lunexia formula:
We don’t need to tell most of you why this is such a bad formula.
It’s obvious – PROPRIETARY BLEND!
We hate prop blends. You should too.
But we especially hate them when they are full of dud ingredients that have obviously just been included to bulk out the formula.
We’ll skip the usual “strengths” section because there’s no justifying that kind of thing.
- Proprietary blend
- Contains obvious fillers
In our opinion, there is never a good reason to use a proprietary blend.
Some manufacturers claim that they need to use them, or else a competitor might steal away their secret formula.
But that doesn’t happen for a very simple reason – there is never anything to steal!
There’s nothing special about the ingredients used in Lunexia. We know how they all work, we know their range of effective doses, and we know how they interact with other substances.
Everything you need to know about the ingredients in Lunexia can be learned from a quick Google, so stealing the formula would be absolutely pointless.
So why do they do it?
There’s some things about this formula, namely the serving sizes – how the total blend size is divided among the ingredients – that the manufacturer DOES NOT want you to know.
Now, this is true of every prop blend, but not all prop blends are equally bad.
Some are clearly worse than other.
Lunexia’s prop blend is the worst we’ve ever seen from a sleep supplement.
It contains things like Goji Berry and Passion Fruit – things that have never been shown to have any effect on sleep at all.
Passion Fruit isn’t even said to be a sleep cure. There aren’t any traditional medicine claims about this one, and no old wive’s tales, let alone a robust scientific study.
And the worst thing is, we have NO IDEA HOW MUCH OF THESE INGREDIENTS ARE IN HERE!
For all we know, the Lunexia formula could comprise about 1000mg of Passion Fruit and then a few milligrams of each other ingredient.
That is absolutely unacceptable.
Lunexia Side Effects
On the side effect front, we actually do have some concerns.
This is rare for a sleep supplement – normally these products give us no reason to worry.
But very few sleep aids use a proprietary blend (most have entered the 21st Century, after all).
The safety of a substance is intimately linked to its dose. What is perfectly fine for human consumption at 500mg is not necessarily safe at 5g. That applies to pretty much everything – even water.
Since we don’t know how any of the ingredients in Lunexia are dosed, we can’t make accurate predictions about side effect occurrence or severity.
This is particularly concerning since it contains things like 5-HTP, which influences your serotonin production.
We don’t think 5-HTP is very effective at all, but we also don’t think you should be playing around with this molecule anyway; it isn’t part of our natural diet, and you don’t want to be consuming exogenous substances that mess around with your serotonin receptors.
We think it’s always a good idea to avoid proprietary blends.
This is as true for your safety as it is for your wallet.
We need you to remember the following: It is absolutely vital that you consider your own circumstances, do your own research, and always consult a qualified health professional before using these supplements.

Do not try to cure a serious sleeping condition with herbal supplements. Talk to a doctor!
Final Verdict – Lunexia – Should You Buy It?
It’s as simple as that.
If you haven’t read our full Lunexia review, we strongly recommend that you go back and read the part about proprietary blends, what they mean, and how they hurt your wallet.
Any manufacturer who uses a prop blend these days is just treating their customers with utter contempt.
Don’t fall for it.
