Overview: A unique insomnia formula that combines the amino acid 5- HTP, L-theanine from green tea and the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is a natural substance secreted by the pineal gland in your brain. It is recognized as a key element in regulating your daily metabolic rate and is synchronized with your biological clock. Chewable fruit flavoured tablet.
Benefits: Helps to temporarily promote relaxation.

Helps relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency aspect of sleep quality) in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome. Helps re-set body's sleep-wake cycle (aspect of the circadian rhythm).
