I have been taking melatonin to sleep for a while because of some adrenal health issues I am dealing with. I have tried pills you swallow whole and sub lingual melatonin, both of which make me have to take a lot more than I would like. When I was asked to review a Yiva product I was very excited about their melatonin tincture. As an herbalist I know that herbal tinctures allow the medicinal plant properties to enter the tissues faster allowing a lower dose of the plant extract to be more effective and quicker acting than other ways of taking the herb. I was hoping it would work the same with the melatonin.
Here is what Yiva Naturals says about their product:
“Melatonin has become a staple in many households across the country. With spotty success on a product with proven results, new brands hit the market almost daily. So what makes Melatonin different? Our scientists have developed a delivery mechanism that’s proprietary and proven. It starts with the understanding that Melatonin requires alcohol to dissolve and absorb the active ingredients that make the sleep-aid work. Melatonin by Yiva has created a unique and proprietary process of distillation that offers full absorption. This means you get a full-night’s sleep with just a fraction of the dosage “
I found that just one dropper full of Yiva tincture (approximately 1mg) works just as well as 5mg of the sub lingual melatonin I was taking. This allows me to get a safe, natural sleep quickly without throwing large amounts of hormones at my body. I love this because it will make weaning off of melatonin easier than it would have with sub lingual tabs. I can wean my self down to a very small dose quickly using this tincture. The dropper doses are easier to control than sub lingual tabs are. There aren’t any additional ingredients that can cause allergic reactions either, which is an extra bonus. The ingredients are water, alcohol, and melatonin. That is it!
Who is Yiva? Yiva Naturals offers alternative solutions to modern medicine. Their products are 100% natural, safe and effective. I actually chose one of their less popular products to try out.
