HOW MELATONIN OPTIMIZES YOU
Melatonin is a hormone that helps regulate your internal clock. High relative levels of melatonin help signify that it is time for your body to sleep.*
'READY TO GO' SLEEP HORMONE SUPPLEMENT
Let's face it; we humans rarely abide by the Earth's natural day/night sleep cycles. Electricity has created artificial light (not to mention television!) to allow all manners of work and play to exist deep into the dead of night, and most sleeping quarters provide blinds or curtains to block out the arousing rays of the morning sun. The result is that some of the mechanisms that have evolved inside us to assist with the sleep process have been thrown askew. One of these mechanisms involves the hormone melatonin. In a normal, pre-electricity scenario the pineal gland would release melatonin at the onset of darkness to help induce a desire to sleep. However, artificial light, especially high-frequency blue light from visual electronics has been known to shift the release of melatonin, which can perturb sleeping patterns.
Ingesting supplemental melatonin in our ‘ready to go’ spray can help the body signify to you when it is time for your body to sleep. In assisting the body's natural desire to rest, the melatonin can help the body to enjoy a more restful sleep experience. By placing the melatonin in a spray format, with two delicious breath-freshening flavors, you have a fast and simple delivery system for this vital sleep hormone.*
I do some of my best work at night, and as much as I try to limit blue light exposure, light entering my eyes is inevitable. Before I started using melatonin I would toss and turn in bed, counting down the hours until my alarm, which as we all know just compounds the problem. With melatonin in my arsenal, it’s like clockwork. I take it 30 minutes prior to when I want to sleep, and I easily drift off into dreamland. I even find it helps me fall back asleep if I wake up in the night or early morning.
The spray format is a game changer — it is ready to go when I need it and I feel it fast. Then in the morning when the light hits my eyes again, after a few minutes I feel recharged, rested, and ready to own the day.

5 TIPS TO IMPROVE SLEEP
1) Limit blue light exposure during night time hours. Use blue light filters on your phone and laptop when available.
2) Stay hydrated and mineralized. Onnit Key Minerals and himalayan salt are great to take before bed.
3) Distance yourself from high output electrical devices.
4) Block out windows and curtains, so that melatonin stays high until you are ready to wake up.
5) Avoid high sugar foods before going to sleep, to maintain steady blood sugar and insulin levels.
