Introduced as a natural, non-OTC means of overcoming the effects of jet lag, Melatonin was the subject of rigorous University-led scientific research shortly after its commercial introduction in 1993. Not even a year later, it was almost impossible to open a health magazine, read a medical journal or turn on the television without hearing about its beneficial health effects. Today, nearly two decades later, Melatonin enjoys staple status among millions of health enthusiasts. From airline pilots and corporate executives, to factory workers and educators, there is literally no end to the scope of humanity that has been positively touched by this remarkable and unquestionably effective dietary supplement.
In addition to the system-wide support benefits it offers those who frequently hop times zones and travel abroad, Melatonin remains one of today’s most popular ways to promote healthy sleep habits.* Looking at the numbers, it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Nutrition Business Journal reports that 2003 total sales of Melatonin products came in just shy of $60 million, increasing 7% in 2005 and another 11% in 2006. According to SPINScan Natural, Melatonin sales have surged by an extraordinary 59% over just the past three years. Remarkably, it has yet to plateau. Word of mouth, retailer influence and a virtually unblemished history of safety continues to attract new users.
For years it was accepted that the traditional 3 mg dose was most effective. New findings, however, suggest that higher potencies are just as safe and may be more effective in regulating the body’s sleep/wake cycles.* When making the recommendation for Melatonin to a customer, it’s important to offer a brand that leaves no doubt on effectiveness or stated potency. After
all, this is a supplement whose worth is almost always measured in terms of short term and immediate results. A poor first impression won’t just leave your customers tossing and turning, it could affect your sales and credibility. Recommending the NOW brand is a surefire way to avoid such unpleasantness. In addition to being one of the first natural product manufacturers to offer Melatonin in sustained release and low potency formulas, NOW is also one of the first to offer it in higher potencies. Our new High Potency Melatonin 5 mg is the result of ongoing science which suggests that higher potencies may be of even greater benefit to some users.* As with NOW’s entire line of Melatonin, we employ stringent quality control measures throughout each stage of manufacturing, purchase raw materials from only established vendors who meet our strict safety demands and conduct pre- and post- batch sample testing to validate purity and potency. Besides, when it comes to your customers’ sleep, we wouldn’t dream of leaving anything to chance.
