Read our review below about a product called Life Extension Melatonin. It is a dietary supplement that is designed to promote the rate at which one falls asleep and provides quality sleep. According to the manufacturer, this supplement also has an antioxidant property that helps protect cellular DNA, and balance circadian rhythm and immune function.
The active ingredient in this supplement is melatonin, which is a natural compound that animals, including humans, have. Its role is to regulate sleep and wake patterns. The recommended daily allowance of melatonin for insomnia is between 2 mg and 3 mg, and between 5mg and 8mg for jet lag. We realize that this product allows you to take 300 mcg per day. When converting this to mg, it is within the recommended daily allowance for insomnia, which is a good thing
The inactive ingredients in this supplement are Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable cellulose (capsule), rice concentrate.
The recommended dosage is 1 tablet taken 30 to 60 minutes before you go to sleep, or as suggested by a healthcare provider. According to the manufacturer, taking it at night provides optimal results, which makes sense, since it is meant for insomnia.
Life Extension Melatonin can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website for $6.00, which is a discounted price. The retail price is $8.00 for a bottle of 60 capsules. It is also available from online third-party retailers.
We could not find any information relating to a money-back guarantee. The absence of this information could mean that it does not exist, and its non-existence shows that the manufacturer does not have confidence in the effectiveness of the product.
Life Extension Melatonin Review – Conclusion
Life Extension Melatonin could be beneficial in promoting good sleep. The melatonin contained in it is a natural compound, which is good. We notice that the daily allowance of this supplement is 300 mcg daily, which is a correct recommended daily allowance. However, in most researches, it has been used for 29 weeks for longer periods, and 4 weeks for shorter periods. This is not mentioned on the supplement. It is important that information like this is disclosed by the manufacturer so that the customer is aware not to use it for more than the suggested period.
The price of this supplement is very low compared to other products on the market. This could be a good thing for some, as it means that it is affordable. However, it could also be a bad thing because in many cases low prices are often associated with low quality.
We are concerned that the manufacturer listed three inactive ingredients on their website, while the third-party retailer listed nine. Information needs to be consistent in order for the consumer to trust the product, especially information about ingredients. Lastly, there is no money-back guarantee, which means that you put yourself at risk by buying this supplement. All these downsides make us doubt the effectiveness of the product. Rather look for something else, to ensure that you protect yourself, and use your money on a product that you will benefit from.
