An estimated 50 to 70 million American adults have difficulty sleeping.1 Melatonin, known as the “sleep hormone,” is made naturally by your body primarily at night and is necessary to keep our day/night rhythm in tune, but those who have trouble sleeping may not be producing enough of it at the right time.2,3,4 Melatonin IR/XR helps you fall asleep and stay asleep all night long. It combines immediate-release and extended-release melatonin for approximately seven hours of healthy sleep support.

Clinical studies on standard immediate-release melatonin
Results from an analysis of 15 clinical studies show that standard melatonin helps fall asleep faster and sleep longer and promotes sleep quality compared with a placebo.8 In one study, subjects took a 0.1 mg, 0.3 mg, or 3 mg melatonin capsule or a placebo 30 minutes before bedtime for three days. All three melatonin doses promoted restful sleep.9 In a recent randomized placebo-controlled trial, subjects who took 0.5 mg fast-release melatonin at night for four consecutive weeks fell asleep faster and experienced healthy, restful sleep compared with a placebo.10
Clinical studies on controlled-release melatonin
A study found that 2 mg of a controlled-release melatonin formulation taken two hours before bed promoted healthy sleep, compared with a placebo, and also shortened the length of time subjects spent awake after initially falling asleep.11 And in another randomized placebo-controlled study, subjects reported improvement in sleep quality after taking 2 mg of an extended-release formulation before bedtime.12
