Dr Mercola's Melatonin Sleep Support Spray
If you're one of the many who experience occasional sleeplessness – either finding it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep – you’ll be pleased to discover this solution that doesn’t involve habit-forming and dangerous drugs.
Melatonin Sleep Support is an innovative spray that provides rapid delivery of top sleep-promoting ingredients to help:
- increase your feelings of sleepiness
- calm your mind and fall asleep more quickly
- enhance your overall sleep quality
- improve your morning alertness
- reduce your daytime fatigue
Much more than a regular melatonin supplement, Melatonin Sleep Support delivers the ideal dose of melatonin plus important sleep-promoting nutrients and our Proprietary Neuro and Extract Blends for calming mind and body.
The newly enhanced formula now contains 5-HTP to help raise serotonin levels in your brain for promoting improved sleep and an upbeat mood.
Are you getting a good night's sleep?
If not, you're not alone. Nearly two-thirds of all Americans complain of occasional sleeplessness.
Nearly 40% of those polled said they wake up off and on throughout the night, while more than 25% said they wake up too early and just can't get back to sleep -- or had a tough time falling asleep in the first place.
And, if that wasn't bad enough, almost half of respondents said they don't feel refreshed when they wake up in the morning. Many feel even more tired and have a difficult time staying awake during the day.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? Occasional trouble falling asleep -- or staying asleep? Don't feel your best when you wake up? That's not the way it's supposed to work...
You want to be able to fall asleep quickly, get a solid night's rest, and wake up feeling recharged, renewed and reenergized.
I'm sure you realize that good sleep is not only something you want... It's something you -- and your body -- desperately needs.
Melatonin Sleep Support is a proprietary blend of exceptional neuro-nutrients and extracts that promote deep and restful sleep without harmful side effects.
Sleep Support is much more than a simple melatonin supplement. In addition to melatonin, my proprietary Neuro Blend includes:
L-Theanine – An amino acid found in tea that acts as a neurotransmitter promoting relaxation without sedation.
5-HTP – This serotonin-precursor helps raise serotonin levels in your brain, promoting a positive effect on sleep and mood.
GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) – Found in studies to increase relaxing brain alpha waves and reduce “busy-mind” beta waves
L-Tryptophan – An essential amino acid that’s needed for the production of serotonin in your brain, and it’s a precursor to melatonin and niacin. Shown in clinical studies to help normalize sleep patterns.
And that’s not all… Melatonin Sleep Support also contains a proprietary extract blend of:
Cherry Juice Concentrate – Natural cherry juice for health-supporting anthocyanins, polyphenols, and flavonoids.
Humulus lupulus – Hops are a sedative plant that have been shown to increase the activity of GABA in the brain.
Ziziphus jujube – A fruit used in traditional Chinese medicine that may have sedative properties; works well with 5-HTP
Now that you’ve met the supporting players in Melatonin Sleep Support, let’s take a look at the “star” of the show: melatonin.
Melatonin, the sleep hormone, allows you to awaken each morning refreshed
In countless studies, melatonin has been shown to:
- Increase your feeling of sleepiness
- Help you fall asleep more quickly
- Lengthen total sleep duration
- Enhance overall sleep quality
- Improve morning alertness
- Reduce daytime fatigue
What exactly is this sleep “wonder hormone”?
Melatonin is a hormone produced by a pea-sized gland in the middle of your brain called the pineal gland.
For most people, the pineal gland is inactive during the day. It’s only at night – in darkness – that your pineal gland switches on and begins producing melatonin that gets released into your blood.
Typically, during a normal night's sleep, your melatonin levels stay elevated for about 12 hours (usually between 9 pm and 9 am). As the sun rises and your day begins, your pineal gland turns "off" and the melatonin levels in your blood decrease until they're hardly measurable at all.
The amount of melatonin you create and release every night varies depending on your age. Children usually have much higher levels of melatonin than adults.
As you grow older, your levels tend to decrease. Researchers believe this may explain why many older adults occasionally experience disrupted sleep patterns.
With less melatonin in your blood, the stimulus to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake feeling rested can potentially be compromised.
Indeed, that's just one of the reasons why I believe Melatonin Sleep Support is so promising as a superior sleep supplement for people with occasional disrupted sleep patterns, including those with travel-related jet lag and night shift workers.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Skin hunger: why we crave touch
As we are in the midst of the Easter Holiday, we can't help but feel sad. While Mother Nature is showing abundant signs of spring during a period of incredibly sunny weather, we are barely allowed to go outside other than to do what is absolutely necessary. Our gyms have been closed for almost a month now while in some countries, people aren't even allowed to exercise. Not just group exercise, but also to just jump on a bike and go for long rides.
While couples and families get grumpy from living together in a cramped space, others face different problems: they are living without any companion whatsoever. Therefore it's not a miracle how all of a sudden, pet asylums have been able to 'clear out' their list of unwanted pets. Not just because people have more time at hand to walk a dog (just about the only thing some are allowed to do) but also because they crave the ability to touch a living being, for lack of being able to touch another human.
Somehow, just like the sense of smell is overlooked, this also is true for the sense of touch. Only when we lose it, we crave it. This craving also is called 'touch hunger' or 'skin hunger'.
How to reduce stress with ASMROur brain is programmed to stress us. It does that a lot and on just about any subject. Like a lot of behavioral reactions, stress used to be and still is a survival mechanism that our brain used in order to inject alertness when needed. It’s there so we could harness internal resources and spring into action in a matter of seconds when hunted or hunting.
Fortunately for us, we rarely need to spring into action nowadays to avoid a prowling lion. Today, stress is not helpful and is often counter-productive. When stressed, most of us lose focus and are immersed in unpleasant feelings.
In the past, we needed all that “potential energy” when we faced fight or flight situations. It probably saved our lives more than once. Today, this energy still exists in each of us in certain situations; if it is not discharged via some sort of conduit (either physical or of a more neural nature), it slows us down.
That’s why we need to get creative in the way we release stress. We don’t have time to go on a vacation every week; often we even can’t step away from the almighty computer, tablet, or cell phone.
Can you ever get used to working night shifts?Last Sunday the Daylight Saving Time ended, and if your reaction was similar to mine, it felt like we plunged right into the darkest time of year. Only a few days earlier, I'd be out and about in broad daylight to get your parcels delivered to you on time, then all of a sudden dusk had set in already.
Maybe your reaction was similar, or if you are someone who rises early, you're happy to see the sun back for a short while when waking up.
Or, perhaps you aren't seeing the sun much at all, because you belong to the almost 20% of people who habitually work at weird hours. Some of you may only work night shifts, while others will have rotating shifts.
For those of you, who may for one reason or another will have to work in shifts soon, we have gathered more background information on how shift work affects your life and how to adapt to it.
Almost everyone has hard time adapting to night shifts, but most people can adapt to it within a few months.
Fears about contamination of eggs or supplements
In the past week of early June, a lot of fear was placed in the heart of the public of both Dutch, German and French customers, when officials from the National Food Safety Board announced eggs had to be destroyed due to contamination with a banned substance, called fipronyl.
The reason this happened, is that fipronyl is an amazingly effective insecticide that was perfectly legal for use in stables where egg laying poultry live. This insecticide was however banned from January 1 onwards for use on animals in the food chain, with the main reason behind the ban being its toxicity to bees.
Shake before use and take 6 sprays daily an hour before bedtime.
