Mellowtonic Sleep

mellowtonic sleep

Mellowtonic Sleep is a new sleep aid developed by Dynamic Balance Nutrition. This product was designed for people who have a hard time sleeping due to stress, anxiety, and a mind that won’t calm down.

Mellowtonic Sleep uses all-natural ingredients to promote a state of drowsy relaxation which supposedly gives you the best sleep of your life. This product doesn’t contain any drugs or sugars. It is safe for long-term use without the risk of forming a habit or dependency.

I looked into this product’s formula to see if Mellowtonic Sleep is capable of inducing sleep without the use of drugs or medication.

The Mellowtonic Sleep Formula

Mellowtonic Sleep’s formula consists of various herbal ingredients commonly used to promote sleep and relaxation. The most intriguing ingredients are listed below:

Melatonin (2 mg) is a hormone made in the pineal gland responsible for the body’s sleep and wake cycles.[1][2] It is clinically proven to optimize sleep efficiency and treat sleep disorders such as insomnia.[3]

The recommended dose for treating insomnia is 1-3 mg taken one hour before bed.[1] Mellowtonic Sleep has a perfect amount to induce drowsiness.

Stress Blend (850 mg)

St. John’s wort is an herb often used to treat mild depression and improve mood. While some clinical research hints St. John’s wort effectively treats mild depression, two large studies show the ingredient is “no more effective than placebo.”[4]

Valerian root is clinically proven to shorten sleep latency (the time it takes to fall asleep) and improve sleep quality.[5][6]

Studies show 225 mg valerian root per day is effective for combating anxiety and promoting restful sleep.[5] Mellowtonic Sleep likely has enough to produce positive results.

Lemon balm is known as a calming herb. It has been used to lower stress, ease pain, and promote sleep. While several clinical trials show lemon balm in combination with other calming herbs promotes sleep, there is little clinical research examining the ingredient itself.[7] Consequently, it’s difficult to determine lemon balm’s individual effect on sleep, or a recommended dosing range.

Yerba mate is a stimulant usually taken in place of coffee. I’m puzzled why Mellowtonic Sleep includes this ingredient.[8]

Risk of Side Effects?

While Mellowtonic Sleep has no reported side effects, some ingredients in its formula are known to cause side effects in rare cases.

For example, Melatonin and St. John’s wort are known to cause headache, dizziness, and irritability.[9][10]

In addition, yerba mate causes inability to sleep, restlessness, and increased heart rate (likely due to its caffeine content).[11]

This product was not intended for pregnant or breastfeeding women as it may cause health complications in the infant.

How to Take Mellowtonic Sleep

Drink 2 tablespoons of Mellowtonic Sleep immediately before bed.

Remember, this product causes drowsiness. Do not take it before driving or operating machinery.

Purchasing Mellowtonic Sleep

Mellowtonic Sleep has recently become available through several online retailers:

• SuperHealthCenter.com – $11.99
• i-Supplements.com – $11.99
• HealthSuperStore.com – $10.52
• SmartPowders.com – $8.99

These prices are for individual 8 oz. bottles (containing 8 servings). If you shop around, you may be able to find deals for purchasing multiple bottles.

Should You Try Mellowtonic Sleep?

Mellowtonic Sleep has potential, but its ingredient list is not impressive. While some ingredients are proven to promote restful sleep, in contains stimulants such as yerba mate which seems counterproductive. From what I can tell, this product’s ingredient list doesn’t look more effective than the average herbal tea blend for producing relaxation.

However, Mellowtonic Sleep is not likely to produce adverse side effects and should be safe for most people. Considering you can purchase a bottle for less than $10, it’s a good idea to buy a bottle and try it. Even if it doesn’t get you to sleep, it’s likely to provide a pleasant calm.
