Sleep is a vital part of health and many of us are not getting enough. The 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey found about 1 in 7 adults has difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomnia affects 1 in 3 seniors and is 40% more common in women. Changes in sleeping patterns are largely reflective of our circadian rhythms, which are guided by the pineal hormone, melatonin. Melatonin is also known to decline as we age, which accounts for a number of the sleep changes we experience throughout life. Additionally, jet lag and shift work can significantly alter circadian rhythms and thus melatonin secretion.

In the face of insomnia, many people have tried prescription sleeping pills, but they can interfere with REM sleep, disrupt deeper stages of sleep and lead to confusion, sluggishness, anxiety and even drug dependency. Conversely, Melatonin has shown clinical benefit for inducing sleep or adjusting sleep cycles4 reducing sleep onset latency and improving perceived quality of sleep, without impairing daytime psychomotor performance or creating dependency. In fact, supplemental melatonin and bright light therapy are considered standard medical treatment for cases of jet lag, shift work, age-related insomnia, delayed sleep-phase disorder, advanced sleep-phase disorder, and non-24-hour sleep-wake disorder. Chronic sleep disturbance is a risk factor for premature aging, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers, demonstrating just how important it is to maintain normal melatonin levels to enhance sleep quality.

  • Quick dissolve tablets provide consistent melatonin bioavailability - pharmacokinetic studies indicate that 30 to 60% of an oral dose of melatonin is metabolized via the liver9 and overall gastrointestinal absorption is variable
  • A singular high potency sublingual tablet is optimal for those who need higher doses of melatonin (10-20 mg)
  • Derived from non-animal sources
  • Refreshing, natural peppermint flavor
