Make sure the melatonin supplement you take passed our quality review and is right for you!
Isn't your health worth it?
What is melatonin? Will melatonin supplements help you sleep? In this report, ConsumerLab.com explains what melatonin is, when melatonin is most likely to help with sleep problems, how to use melatonin, and shows you which melatonin supplements are high quality and best priced.
 
We found significant differences among melatonin supplements: Unit strengths ranged from 1 mg to 10 mg; suggested daily dosage ranged from 1 mg to 50 mg; and cost ranged from just 4 cents to $1.36 for an equivalent dose of melatonin. This means you may not be using the right dose if you go by the label, and you could be paying 33 times more than you need to if you're not using our cost comparisons.
 
Our review and tests of popular melatonin supplements found that one supplement failed to properly disclose its ingredients. Otherwise, the melatonin supplements (including tablets, caplets, lozenges, and liquids) contained their labeled amounts of melatonin without unacceptable lead contamination, and, if regular tablets or caplets, broke apart properly in disintegration testing. 

In this comprehensive report about melatonin, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 19 melatonin supplements (including 10 that passed our Voluntary Certification Program) and information about two additional melatonin supplements similar to others that passed testing. You'll learn:
    • Which melatonin supplements passed or failed testing 
    • How melatonin supplements compare on quality, ingredients, and cost. See how you can save as much as $400 per year on a supplement while getting the same amount of melatonin
    • What melatonin can and cannot do for your health
    • The differences between regular and time-release melatonin supplements
    • The differences among natural, synthetic, and plant-based melatonin 
    • Melatonin dosage for different conditions
    • Concerns, drug interactions, and potential side-effects of melatonin
