Melatonin works with the body’s natural cycles to effectively reset your “biological clock” to help you fall asleep faster, increase the quality and duration of sleep, support REM sleep, and reduce daytime fatigue. Natural Factors Melatonin comes in innovative bilayer tablets. It complements a healthy sleep-wake cycle by releasing 5 mg immediately upon use and an additional 5 mg gradually over several hours.
Recommended Use: Helps increase total sleep time in people suffering from sleep restriction or an altered sleep schedule (e.g., shiftwork and jet lag). Helps prevent and/or reduce the effects of jet lag (e.g., daytime fatigue, sleep disturbance).
