This is a review of Great Lakes Nutrition Melatonin. This product is supposed to regulate the circadian rhythm and to maintain a regular sleep schedule. The producer claims that it can help with jet lag associated symptoms such as sleeplessness, anxiety and restlessness. Keep reading to learn more about its dosage ingredients and whether or not it is what we call a safe purchase.




This supplement contains 3 mg of melatonin per serving. Apart from the main ingredient, the inactive components of this product are nowhere to be found. The manufacturer offers no information about the other ingredients, which is somewhat concerning. We have not managed to find out whether this supplement is suited or not for vegetarians, whether it contains all natural ingredients or not and whether it contains some problematic ingredients such as lactose, soy or gelatin.


As a dietary supplement for adults, consumers are recommended to take only one tablet a day just before bedtime. The tablet can either be placed under the tongue then swallowed after it dissolves, in order to ensure a faster absorption, or it can be swallowed whole.

Possible Side Effects

The only documented side effect of this supplement is drowsiness, according to the manufacturer. If drowsiness occurs, the dosage must be reduced. The product is not recommended for children under the age of 18, for pregnant or breastfeeding women. It is also not to be associated with other prescription drugs or taken by persons who suffer from depression.


This product costs $3.95 on the company website. This is quite a reasonable bargain taking into account that most other similar supplements are way above it. If also considering the fact that this price is for almost a two month supply of the product, this definitely raises come concerns. The low price may be a cause of bad quality ingredients which is probably the case given the fact that they have remained unknown up until now.


Fortunately the company has a very transparent refund policy. All the details are given on the website, including return address, return deadline and even state of returned product. The manufacturer offers a full money refund minus the shipment fees, as long as it is returned in maximum 30 days from the purchase. They also mention how long it will take until you get your money back, which is 3 to 5 days from the date they receive the returned product. Still, no matter how transparent the refund policy, the lack of customer reviews can’t be a promising sign.


In conclusion, this is a very easy to use supplement with clear and precise dosage instructions. Apart from that, the return and refund policy can only be seen as impressive. Nevertheless, the fact that the company website lacks essential information about the product is incredibly concerning. Not knowing all of the ingredients and taking into account the low price we can only assume that this product is of a poor quality. All in all, although it may not seem like a risky purchase, we are sure that there are better supplements yu could try.
