Melatonin Spray

Updated on February 25, 2013

Sleepless Nights

Do you have difficulty falling asleep at night, wake up often, or wake up feeling even more tired than you did before you went to bed? Receiving the right amount of sleep is very important to our overall well being in many ways, and it can become very frustrating and very tiresome when not getting the proper rest the body needs. The right amount of sleep will aid to boosting your immune system, repair damaged muscles, renew your mind, help the body cope with daily stress and prevent pre-mature aging of the skin.

For years I struggled falling asleep at night, and when I would fall asleep I would get so frustrated being a light sleeper, that the slightest sounds would wake me up, causing me to not be able to quickly fall back to sleep. I know that I am not alone in this, especially when I read in the news that over 3 billion dollars was spent in 2007 by Americans for sleep aid prescriptions. I at times of desperation would just pop some Tylenol PM or some NyQuil. Finally one day a concerned family member introduced me to Melatonin.

Melatonin is produced naturally in our body by a small gland called the pineal gland, which is located in the center of the brain. This gland is inactive for most folks during the day and becomes active at night producing Melatonin into the blood. This usually occurs between 9pm to sunrise. The amount of Melatonin the body produces does depend on age. Children have higher levels of Melatonin than adults, as we grow our levels decrease, which would explain why most sleeping disorders are among adults and not young children.

Melatonin Sleep Support Spray

Finally Something That Works!

I had started to use Melatonin in a capsule form, and did not notice an immediate change until after taken the pills for several days. I have just recently discovered melatonin in a spray that allows optimal absorption without having to take any pills, and am very well pleased on how well it works. Melatonin Sleep Support Spray accurately distributes the right amount of melatonin without interfering with the absorption of other vitamins, minerals, and supplements. If you are one of the 84% that have difficulty sleeping, before you go to desperate measures and take prescription drugs or over the counter pills like Tylenol PM, please do your body the favor and try using melatonin which will not only give you much better results, but is much safer to use, not having all the side effects that you see on the labeling of those prescribed and over the counter drugs.

      amy jane, I just hate it when we are robbed from sleep. The Melatonin has helped me, plus I have also noticed that a lavender linen spray or the lavender essential oil sprayed onto pillow helps put me into a deep sleep.

      Thanks for the info! I've taken melatonin in the past, but never in the spray form. I think I'll give it a try...for some reason sleep has been escaping from me lately!

      You and me both, I am glad I found this out, especially when I am in my busy season, I can't shut my mind off at night either and this has helped.

      Fascinating...I've never heard of a Melatonin spray. I go through times where my mind never stops, so it's hard to sleep. I may look into this as a natural aid. Great hub!

      Great hub. I am frustrated, light sleeper and I've tried many thing though the years. At least Melatonin in a natural aid. I've used Melatonin but wasn't aware of the spray. Good hub.
