Description Usage Supplement Facts Optimal Sleep is a melatonin-free sleep aid. The synergistic nutrients support healthy sleep duration. This melatonin-free formula is designed by epigenetics expert, Dr. Ben Lynch. It supplies the nutrient cofactors your body needs to produce melatonin naturally. Melatonin, known as the “sleep hormone,” is a central part of your body’s sleep-wake cycle.* Many over-the-counter sleep aids contain melatonin. However, melatonin supplements can have potential side effects, including brain fog and drowsiness the next morning. With long-term use, melatonin can become habit-forming and even contribute to trouble sleeping. Optimal Sleep† contains the nutrient cofactors your body needs to build its own melatonin. These active ingredients include vitamin B6, magnesium, niacin, and zinc. A gentle serving of ashwagandha, 5-HTP, and phosphatidylserine is included to support cortisol regulation.* Collectively, these nutrients support a healthy sleep-wake cycle, circadian rhythm, stress response, and feelings of calm. By supporting your body’s natural melatonin production, you eliminate potential side effects from melatonin supplementation.* A good night’s sleep is an integral part of your mental and physical health during waking hours. If you find yourself struggling to stay asleep at night, Optimal Sleep† might just be the perfect partner for your nighttime routine.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

California residents should not exceed 1 capsule daily. Warnings: Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner for medical advice prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged. Niacin Flushing: This formula contains niacin. When taken on an empty stomach, a healthy response to niacin supplementation may include mild blushing, warming, or tingling of the skin. This can appear on the ears, face, arms, torso, or occasionally on the legs. Commonly referred to as a "niacin flush", this harmless response normally dissipates within an hour. It is related to niacin's role in vasodilation (widening of blood vessels). Vasodilation leads to better circulation, capillary flushing, and increased blood flow to the surface of the skin. To minimize or prevent flushing, consider taking this supplement with food or in divided doses. Safety-sealed for your protection and for product freshness. Do not use if outer seal is missing or broken. Store in cool, dry place.
