Schiff Melatonin Plus is a natural product that is designed to help you fall asleep when you need it and to help you cope with jet lag. When you cross a time zone, the light is around for longer or shorter than your body is expecting so it struggles to determine when is the right time to fall asleep. That is why the symptoms of jet lag include both fatigue and insomnia. Schiff Melatonin Plus is designed to reprogram your biological rhythm into the new time zone so that you no longer experience those symptoms.

L-theanine acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemical signals that exhibit biological effects on nerve cells like those in the brain. L-theanine in causes the nerve cells in the brain to reduce their electrical activity so that lower waves are produced. When the body moves from fast waves of high activity to slower waves, the whole cascade that causes a person to feel sleepy begins. So L-theanine helps to relax the brain and body.
Melatonin is the major player in helping a person fall asleep. It is a hormone that is released in the brain that causes a whole number of things to happen to help a person fall asleep. It changes the blood flow to the brain and governs the electrical activity to some degree so as to produce that feeling of drowsiness. When the sleep cycle is disrupted, this does not happen properly. Taking melatonin from the supplement should therefore re-establish this process to help a person fall asleep.
Vitamin B6 is involved in helping tissues of the body to relax. This causes tension in the body to decrease which can help a person to fall asleep.
One tablet of the supplement should be taken at bedtime if you are struggling to sleep. A tablet contains 3 mg of melatonin. In terms of products that help you sleep 3 mg is quite a small dosage as there are products that offer as much as 6 mg.
At the time of the writing of this review the price of the product was not available. The main reason for this is that there was no stock of it. This suggests to us that the product was recalled and one of the reasons could be because it just wasn’t selling.

Schiff Melatonin Plus Review – Conclusion
The manufacturers of this product have the right idea of using melatonin to help a person fall asleep and supporting it with ingredients like vitamin B6 and L-theanine. There are some other ingredients which could have been added to help the effect of melatonin but that isn’t the major problem with the effectiveness of the product. The major problem is that the manufacturer does not provide a high enough dosage of melatonin to exhibit a proper effect in most people.
There are other things that concern us like the lack of availability of this product and the fact that it is not covered by a satisfaction guarantee.
