Sleep 3’s Triple-Action Time Release Technology
While quick-release melatonin can help with sleep, its levels peak in the bloodstream around 20-60 minutes before the body quickly breaks it down. 10 11
Because of this rapid breakdown, a more prolonged release melatonin formulation may help maintain levels throughout the night. 12 Sleep3 provides time-release melatonin to total 10mg of melatonin when combined with quick-release melatonin. This layer of melatonin is released more gradually over a sustained period of time. The time-release melatonin in Sleep3 is designed to help mimic the body’s natural pattern of melatonin release throughout the night.†

Nature’s Bounty® Sleep3 is a maximum-strength product that offers 3-in-1 benefits that make it stand out among 100% drug-free sleep aids.† Time-release melatonin provides melatonin in a manner that more closely mimics the pattern naturally released in your body.† This specialized formula is designed to help you to relax, fall asleep faster, and works with your natural sleep cycle to promote uninterrupted, long-lasting sleep.†
To evaluate the availability for absorption of melatonin from Sleep3 compared to regular melatonin tablets, researchers at The Nature’s Bounty Co. performed an in-house dissolution trial. The study found in vitro that Sleep3 led to a more gradual release of melatonin over time as compared to the regular melatonin supplement. The data suggest—as shown in the graph below—that Sleep3 offers a steadier rise in melatonin availability as compared to taking a regular melatonin supplement.

Are you getting enough sleep?
More than one in three U.S. adults report getting less than the recommended amount of sleep per night.13 The trouble for some is falling asleep, while for others it’s waking up several times throughout the night, or a combination of both. There are a number of factors that can lead to disrupted sleep or occasional sleeplessness. These include lifestyle habits, night shift work, artificial light, light-emitting devices used at or near bedtime, or jet lag.
Whatever the cause of occasional sleeplessness, the lack of sleep can affect how you feel, how you look, and how well you perform during the day.14 Taking a proactive approach to getting better quality sleep is just as important to your health as diet and exercise.
Far from switching off during sleep, your body remains active working just as hard as when you’re awake to restore your body’s energy levels, to repair muscles and cells, and supports a variety of body systems.1516 Sufficient quality sleep also helps the brain process information helping to reduce mental fatigue.17 To obtain the full range of benefits of supportive sleep, the average adult should be getting around seven or more hours of quality sleep each night.18 There are a few general tips for achieving better sleep at night. These include being physically active during the day, going to bed at the same time consistently each night (including on the weekends), avoiding the use of light-emitting digital devices before bedtime, avoiding caffeine or large meals before bedtime, and sleeping in a bedroom that is quiet, dark and at a comfortable temperature.19
Why supplement with melatonin before bedtime?
Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in the body that’s involved in our natural sleep cycle.† As light fades at dusk and early evening, our melatonin levels begin to rise triggering sleepiness. During the early morning as the sun begins to rise, less and less melatonin is made and we start to wake up and be more alert. Peak melatonin levels are reached generally between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.202122
The normal release of melatonin is vital for the maintenance of circadian rhythm and your “sleep-wake cycle.” However, melatonin amounts can vary depending on the person.19 As we get older, the amount of melatonin that our bodies produce lessens.18 Its normal release in the brain can also be suppressed by traveling to different time zones, nightshift work, lifestyle habits, and artificial light or light-emitting electronics, such as television or mobile phones. This disruption can affect your ability to relax, ability to fall asleep, or stay asleep throughout the night.
Melatonin is a safe and effective supplement to help promote sleep.5-9 Clinical studies have found that taking melatonin at bedtime can help shorten the time it takes to fall asleep, can help promote sleep quality, and help to increase the total amount of time that is spent asleep throughout the night.5-9 The natural hormone helps to support sleep quality by working with the body’s circadian rhythm and helps to - synchronize the “sleep wake” cycle.5-9, 23
