Most Trusted Eye Health Brand: Visine
Visine has used the famous slogan, “Gets the red out” in advertisements for more than 40 years. Its active ingredient, tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride, is a vasoconstrictor, which means it temporarily constricts blood vessels so redness is less visible. In some countries, Visine is known as Vispring.
Most Trusted Sleep Aid: ZzzQUIL*
You can thank the late George Rieveschl the next time you take ZzzQUIL. In 1943, the University of Cincinnati chemistry professor developed diphenhydramine, the active ingredient. While working on a way to improve muscle-relaxing medication, Rieveschl realized the compound effectively blocked histamines, which make you feel drowsy. Rieveschl originally wanted a career in commercial art, but went back to school to study chemistry after several job rejections. *Statistical tie with another brand
Most Trusted Sleep Aid: Unisom*
Unisom, which has helped Americans nod off since 1978, uses an active ingredient similar to the one George Rieveschl discovered, but a chemical variation allows it to also block the brain chemical called acetylcholine; this also helps to promote drowsiness. *Statistical tie with another brand
