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
Most Trusted Cruise Line: Carnival Cruise Lines
For most of the 20th century, cruises were considered luxury vacations for the very rich. In 1972, Israeli businessman Ted Arison founded Carnival Cruise Lines with a vision of making cruises accessible to everyone. Its first ship, the Mardi Gras, a secondhand ocean liner, only had enough fuel for a one-way trip from Miami to San Juan. In 2014 Carnival carried nearly 4.4 million guests, the most of any company in the cruise industry.
