Sleep is one of the most important contributors to a healthy lifestyle. Sleep allows the brain to rest, consolidate and develop. Insufficient sleep can lead to drowsiness, dizziness and overall low efficiency. Many people do not achieve sufficient sleep for a variety of reasons. If this lack of being able to fall asleep and remain asleep becomes chronic, it is known as insomnia. This review examines Natrogix Melatonin which is a dietary supplement that contains melatonin, a natural hormone that aims to aid falling and remaining asleep in individuals who experience insomnia.

- Organic Beeswax
- Purified water
The lead ingredient of this product is melatonin, which is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, implicated in regulating sleep and wake cycles in humans and animals. It acts in a complex signaling pathway in the brain, mostly by affecting the blood vessels’ diameter and major neural pathways involved in the feeling of wakefulness. Thus, it promotes the body’s natural feeling of sleepiness. The soybean oil, gelatin, glycerin, and beeswax are very minor components, used for bulking and packaging of the main ingredients. The purified water helps to maintain the gel consistency of the product.
Natrogix Melatonin seems to rely strongly on the effects melatonin, with no supporting ingredients to aid or amplify its absorption or its effects.
Each gel capsule of Natrogix Melatonin contains 5 mg of melatonin. The packaging instructs one capsule to be taken daily. It is recommended that the capsule be taken with food. The dosage may vary if suggested otherwise by a healthcare practitioner.
Several scientific studies have found that melatonin may significantly increase sleep duration, sleep efficiency and sleep onset. However, these studies vary with regard to the optimal dosage of melatonin. 5 mg of melatonin may exhibit these results, but there are supplements which contain higher doses of melatonin.
One bottle of Natrogix Melatonin can be bought online at $16.99. Each bottle contains 120 capsules. As far as we can determine, there are no discounts for buying a bulk supply.
Natrogix Melatonin is certified by the FDA and tested by a third party laboratory. However, despite extensive inquiry, no information about a money back guarantee could be obtained.
Natrogix Melatonin Review – Conclusion
Natrogix Melatonin is an all natural supplement, which contains almost pure melatonin, which has been proven in a variety of studies, to aid in falling asleep and maintaining sleep. Furthermore, the dosage instructions are uncomplicated and the capsule is not large so it is easy to swallow.
However, the only action this product aims to achieve is to target the melatonin signaling pathways, despite the fact that there are numerous other actions which can support this, such as a natural anti-inflammatory and serotonin booster.
The price of the product is reasonable, but no discounts are offered for bulk orders, making long-term management of insomnia difficult. Furthermore, there appears to be no money back guarantee offered on the product, so if a customer is unsatisfied, they are left with a four month supply of a supplement which is ineffective for them.
