Serena Williams Launches Sleep Sheets®
Thirteen-Time Grand Slam Tennis Champion Serena Williams Unveils New Natural Sleep Aid
"DREAMS COME TRUE" With Sleep Sheets® Contest Begins Today Giving Fans a Chance to Win a Dream Day with Serena
NEW YORK, April 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sheets® Brand, the creator of Sheets® dissolvable strips, today announced the launch of Sleep Sheets®, a new natural sleep aid designed to support one's natural sleep cycle. Sleep Sheets® were developed to provide relief to the approximately 60 million Americans who have occasional sleep problems each year.
Sleep Sheets® are distinctive because they are paper-thin, individually wrapped, dissolvable strips. No pills. No liquids. "We kept hearing from consumers that they dislike swallowing pills and consuming beverages before going to sleep. With that in mind, we created Sleep Sheets® as an alternative delivery system," said Warren Struhl, CEO of PureBrands, owner of Sheets® Brand. When placed on your tongue, Sheets® dissolve in seconds and are easily swallowed and digested. Each Sleep Sheet contains 3mg of Melatonin, 3mg of L-Theanine, 1mg of Goji Berry Extract and 1mg of Chamomile Extract. The blend of these natural ingredients is formulated to help you get a restful night's sleep.
Williams, who has struggled sleeping for years, played a major role in the innovation process and worked collaboratively with world-class scientists and Sheets® Brand partners to develop a great new sleep product with only natural active ingredients.
"As an athlete and businesswoman, I'm continuously on-the-go and have had issues sleeping for years," said Co-Founder Serena Williams. "I've tried other products in the past and I am happy that I helped develop Sleep Sheets®. Using them allows me to get a good night's sleep, which means that I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start my day. As an added bonus, Sleep Sheets® are extremely portable and conveniently packaged so I can take them anywhere which is perfect for my lifestyle."
"We're thrilled that Serena has joined the Sheets® team and played an influential role in the development of our new Sleep Sheets® product," said Jesse Itzler, Co-Founder of PureBrands. "After the overwhelming success of Energy Sheets®, we're excited to launch Sleep Sheets® today and help the millions of people who struggle with sleep issues."
To coincide with the product launch, Sheets® Brand has teamed up with Walgreens exclusively to develop the "DREAMS COME TRUE" with Sleep Sheets® promotion. Beginning today through July 31, 2012, consumers who purchase Sleep Sheets® from Walgreens will have the chance to win a dream day with Serena Williams: an all-expense paid trip for two to New York City as well as a meet and greet with the tennis legend.
"We are excited to launch Sleep Sheets® exclusively at Walgreens and to have Serena Williams unveil it at our Times Square location," said Walgreens district manager Jerry Telson.
