Micro Melatonin is included in a smaller dosage than what is regularly found on the market. At 250 micrograms per tablet (1/4 of a 1 milligram dose), you have the flexibility to find the amount that is optimal for you. This also allows you to microdose melatonin for sustainable long-term use.
Sometimes more is not better. Utzy’s Melatonin is included in a smaller dosage than what is regularly found on the market. At 250 micrograms per tablet (1/4 of a 1 milligram dose), you have the flexibility to find the amount that is optimal for you. This also allows for better long term use.
Melatonin is hormone, produced in the pineal gland, that helps regulate the body's circadian rhythm. As you age, your body makes less and less melatonin. Occasional supplementation with Melatonin can help you to maintain proper levels*.
This is precisely what I needed. A tiny dose, only doubling the amount of melatonin in my system (.3 is what our brains make), that isn't fake chemicals.
I will say, even this will make you a little dependent, not because it's addictive, but because it's effective.
Used sparingly, you could likely even train your system to make more, as opposed to making it a daily habit.
This makes me drowsy as if I had a full day of healthy eating and exercise (doesn't always happen!) and really does best at keeping me asleep.
I used to spend hours tossing, and waking up every hour, but I do think with a few more months of this I could train my system to improve, and use it to ensure good sleep on days I need to wake up early.
Will be recommending and purchasing again!
I use melatonin for occasional sleeplessness and to regulate my sleeping patterns when things get out of whack. Taking crazy doses of melatonin--10,000 mg--left me feeling extremely groggy, listless and fatigued the next day. I did some research and found that lower doses of melatonin could actually be more beneficial than higher doses and looked for the lowest dose-melatonin I could find. This product works fantastically--I take it and have no trouble falling asleep within a reasonable timeframe.
I will say that, although it works wonderfully to help me fall asleep in the evenings, it doesn't do anything to prevent me from waking up unreasonably early. That is probably due to some underlying issue and not the fault of the product.
These are my full and honest thoughts and I was not compensated in any way to write this review. Hope this helps!
We are two senior citizens who occasionally find it difficult to get a great night's sleep, especially with jet lag. According to my research, micro tabs are a much better dose than drugstore melatonin. We are very pleased with the micro dose and high quality of Utzy's product.
I’ve taken melatonin since the mid 90s before it was widely available in every store and I’m used to taking 3 milligrams a night. I read about the new studies on melatonin and decided to give this a try.
In taking the micro dose of melatonin it seems to be working even better than I had hoped. I still fall asleep quickly and I don’t feel hungover in the morning. I don’t have any brain fog and I swear I have more energy.
One caveat, I have woken up in the middle of the night every night I’ve taken it. However, if I take another pill right when I wake up then I’ve been able to fall right back asleep. The only issue I can see with this would be the expense of running out more quickly, but it is hard to put a price on having a reliable supplement that actually provides beneficial sleep.
