Life Extension Launches Gummy Science™ Melatonin

New melatonin gummy formula supports restful sleep with no added sugar

Fort Lauderdale, FL — When tossing and turning is a struggle, many people forgo counting sheep and choose melatonin supplements instead. Healthy melatonin levels are crucial for that restorative sleep we all deserve—and when our bodies don’t produce enough of it because of lack of sleep, a dietary supplement can get those circadian rhythms back on track. But not everyone wants to swallow tablets or capsules, and regular gummies are not the best choice for people watching their sugar intake. For these sleep seekers, Life Extension has introduced a tasty solution designed to usher in sweet dreams with no added sugar: Gummy Science™ Melatonin, which delivers 3 mg of the “sleep” hormone to make falling asleep—and staying asleep—easier.

According to Dr. Michael A. Smith, MD, Life Extension’s Director of Education, melatonin is a hormone derived from the amino acid tryptophan. It’s primarily produced by the pineal gland in the brain and is released in response to darkness. “Not only is melatonin well-known for increasing the speed of falling asleep and enhancing sleep quality, but it also confers strong antioxidant protection, supporting immune health, healthy brain performance and more,” he explained.

But not all melatonin supplements are equally beneficial for your health, noted Dr. Smith. “The caveat with sleep support formulas is that they can have added sugars, which can be counteractive in supporting optimal health,” he said. “Gummy Science™ Melatonin is designed to deliver the sleep-enhancing and health-supporting benefits of melatonin in tasty strawberry-flavored gummies and with no added sugar.”

Gummy Science™ Melatonin is the latest sleep support product to join Life Extension’s extensive array of capsules, liquid drops, softgels and tablets. Why so many options? “Everyone has unique preferences and biology,” explained Dr. Stephen Tapanes, Ph.D., a scientist at Life Extension. “We wanted to make melatonin available to people who don’t like other forms of delivery, and gummies seemed like a no-brainer.”

Gummy Science™ Melatonin is strawberry flavored with no added sugar, and the formula is gluten-free and non-GMO.
