What is it?

MusclePharm’s Arnold Iron Dream is a nighttime recovery product that aims to bring two main benefits: better quality sleep and muscle recovery. Just to be clear, this product is not released under Arnold Schwarzenegger’s company, he simply endorsed this line within MusclePharm. This product is perfect for any athletes, bodybuilders, and gym rats who are always active and include rigorous exercise as part of their everyday lifestyle. MusclePharm promises that Iron Dreams can support natural levels of Growth Hormone and testosterone production. This would result in increased muscle growth while repairing any sort of muscle breakdown.

The idea behind this product is simple – since growth hormones are mostly released at night, why not take a supplement that can help put you to sleep while ensuring that your muscles get the nourishment they need. Most (actually, all) of our readers who requested for a review on this product are men, which makes sense because Iron Dreams does work with muscle growth and testosterone levels. But for all our lovely female readers, please note that MusclePharm does have a line specifically designed for women.

What’s in it?

The ingredients in this product are quite expected; there are two separate formulas – the Night Growth Matrix and the Muscle Recovery Matrix. Let’s take a look at a few highlights.


The first ingredient that we were happy to find in this product is Zinc, because it helps to boost the immune system, thus allowing serious athletes and bodybuilders to stay healthy and keep hitting the gym. Now on to the Night Growth Matrix: L-Glycine is an important amino acid that has been shown to improve sleep quality. Similarly, GABA is a neurotransmitter naturally found in our brain that acts a tranquilizer. When taken as a supplement, GABA helps to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. Recent research has also shown that GABA is capable of boosting growth hormone levels.

As for the Muscle Recovery Matrix, the two main substances are definitely L-Glutamine and BCAA. When one engages in intense training, the levels of glutamine in our muscles become depleted, leading to reduced stamina. This is why bodybuilders and gym freaks are more prone to illnesses. L-Glutamine helps to support the immune system, can reduce muscle soreness, and keeps your body anabolic. BCAA, on the other hand, is a great recovery supplement (even on its own). It helps to maintain muscle mass and can enhance exercise performance by boosting stamina and endurance.

Overall, we feel that Iron Dream has a pretty solid formula. It includes substances that can support very good recovery, allow you to reach REM cycle faster and for longer periods of time. Athletes and people who are active all the time often have difficulties falling asleep due to stress or active brain activity. A product with twofold benefits that can help with recovery and sleep should be the perfect choice for all you beasts.

What can it do for you?

Iron Dreams has definitely caught the attention of many bodybuilders and athletes. I mean, who wouldn’t want to try out a product endorsed by the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger? A lot of men have posted very positive reviews detailing their experiences. Most users manage to fall asleep within 30 minutes to an hour after taking the product and find themselves feeling more refreshed upon waking up. My brother, who is an active gym rat and a swimming coach, has been using Iron Dreams for about 2 months now and is quite pleased with the results. He says “although it’s not a life-changing product, it’s pretty good because it does help me fall asleep and feel more energized in the morning.”

Is it safe?

Considering the formula, potential side effects include drowsiness, headache, dizziness, and dry mouth. In order to prevent any harsh side effects, the label stresses that you should only consume this product 30-40 minutes before bedtime and that you should not take this product with alcohol. As always, if you are taking any medications then please consult your physician about Iron Dreams to ensure safety.

How much is it?

If you buy Iron Dreams through then it’s around $20 with a $3.99 shipping charge, but if you buy it off the official MusclePharm website then it’s $37.99 plus $3.99 for shipping. One container contains 30 servings, so it will last you an entire month. This price is quite reasonable, particularly when you consider the amount of ingredients included in the formula.

Instructions of use:

1 serving on an empty stomach 30-40 minutes before bed. Try to cycle your use: 5 days on and 2 days off.

Final Judgment

MusclePharm’s Iron Dreams is a good product for any athletes or serious bodybuilders. Many men who have used it have been quite impressed with the results because it definitely does help put you to sleep and allows brighter, more energized mornings. However, since this product is suitable for such a narrow group of people, we feel as though there are better sleeping aids out there that can support high-quality sleep and is appropriate for anyone.
