A new product, called by its developers from Stanford University the "Sprayable Sleep" can send you to sleep within an hour. Sprayable Sleep is the world’s first topical melatonin spray which helps you get to sleep when you need to without harsh or addictive chemicals. If you wake up in the night the second dose will be enough to make you go to sleep again. Sprayable allows you to sleep more restfully and wake up more refreshed than ever before.

Melatonin is a natural hormone that regulates the body's internal clock. The brain produces melatonin in the pineal gland, a gland that most vertebrates have. Your body starts producing melatonin when it gets dark outside to tell your brain to go to sleep. Your natural sleep schedule is established by the end of infancy, though your body produces less melatonin as you get older. Trytophan, an essential amino acid, makes serotonin, which in turn makes melatonin.

sleep problems

When you sleep well, you look better, work better, travel better, and can spend more quality time with the people you care about. Unfortunately nearly 70 million Americans and over a billion more people globally suffer from regular sleep problems. And those problems are almost always made worse by a tiny hormone called melatonin. Because of all the unnatural light in our environment (the light from televisions, smartphones, and even light bulbs), jet lag or sleeping in a hotel bed, daily stresses, and constant stimulation that disrupts good sleep our bodies are producing melatonin later in the evenings if at all - meaning there isn't enough built in melatonin in our systems to allow us fall asleep or stay asleep.

oral melatonin supplements

For nearly 20 years, oral melatonin supplements have been available to help replace the melatonin missing in your body. When taken orally, melatonin has a major 90% first pass effect, meaning of the melatonin you consume, up to 90% is made useless by your liver. Because of the strong first pass effect - some people may not feel the effect of oral melatonin at all. Your body only needs 0.03mg of active melatonin to help you fall asleep when you want. However, the majority of products on the market have 100-300 times that amount of melatonin in an excessive attempt to counteract the first pass effect and 'force' the body to fall asleep. This can often have severe negative consequences - in many cases disrupting even sleep more than before. With half life of just 20-40 minutes once in the bloodstream, melatonin from an oral pill is almost immediately destroyed in the body. Conversely, as Sprayable Sleep gradually absorbs into the bloodstream from the skin, it circumvents this rapid half life effect, and is able to closely emulate the body’s natural melatonin production - gradually over the course of a night.

Fully certified, tested, and manufactured in a US CGMP Facility. Developed by an industry leading PhD in Chemistry and housed in Stanford University’s StartX Startup Program. The insomnia-killer has already smashed its $15,000 (£9,950) target and has picked up $135,153 (£89,594) worth of investment.
