• Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency aspect of sleep quality) in people who fall asleep slowly or with delayed sleep phase disorder.
• Helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule.
• Helps re-set the body's sleep-wake cycle (aspect of the circadian rhythm).
• Helps to reduce the effects of jet lag.
Our bi-layer controlled release tablet formula, recommended to prevent night-time awakenings (fragmented sleep), acts in 2 steps. The first layer provides 5mg of melatonin which dissolves quickly to provide an immediate release of melatonin. The second layer provides another 5 mg of time-release melatonin to prevent nighttime awakening and help extend sleep duration. Each individual naturally secretes a different amount of melatonin. It is therefore important to find the right dosage of melatonin for you as each individual's needs may be different. Dosage is key, as too much melatonin can have the opposite effect and prevent you from falling asleep. It is recommended to start with the lowest dose and gradually increase until you find the one that suits you best.
