Enhanced Natural Sleep with Melatonin 30 caps

Item catalog number: 01551

Enhanced Natural Sleep® with Melatonin helps promote optimal sleep and youthful appearance. It contains three clinically validated, natural compounds shown to support healthy, restful sleep, promote healthy response to stress, and target sleep debt-related factors associated with skin aging.

  1. Bioactive Milk Peptides (Lactium®) are a cutting-edge nutrient complex consisting of patented bioactive peptides found naturally in milk. Used widely in Europe to promote sustained and restful sleep patterns, published studies reveal that these bioactive milk peptides also promote relaxation, help with stress, and support daytime cognition.148-150 A group of 63 women reporting a variety of sleep-related difficulties experienced as much as 65.6% improvement in their symptoms with just 150 mg per day of these bioactive milk peptides.151 In another study, the same 150 mg dose induced substantial improvements across 27 markers of sleep quality and stress response in 165 healthy adults.152 And in a third study, a group of healthy men and women taking 150 mg per day of these bioactive milk peptides for one month experienced a 50% improvement in sleep quality after two weeks and needed 30% less time to fall asleep after 4 weeks.152
  2. Melatonin (very low dose). A compound produced in the brain to regulate the sleep-wake cycle, melatonin levels naturally decline with age and adversely affect sleep patterns in many people. Melatonin has been shown to support sustained and restful sleep.
  3. Sendara® is a proprietary nutrient complex consisting of ashwagandha and Indian gooseberry extracts. Prized in traditional cultures for their ability to promote healthy skin function and appearance, these plant-based compounds have since gained substantial clinical validation. Indian gooseberry provides broad-spectrum antioxidant support and has been used to preserve youthful skin health and appearance in many skin care products.153-156 Ashwagandha also promotes a healthy response to stress, yielding 62% relaxation support compared to placebo with just 125 mg per day in one clinical study.157
