My review today is on a product called Controlled Delivery Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer, made by Nature’s Origin. Nature’s Origin claims that their product is vegetarian friendly and free of any GMO’s. They claim that their product helps you get to sleep quickly and stay asleep longer by way of their bi-layer tablets, which works to supplement your body’s natural melatonin production.

Please keep in mind that Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer is intended for adult usage only. Adults are instructed to take one tablet roughly 30 minutes before bedtime to ensure best results. It is ideal to take these tablets with water. If you are using this product for jet lag, begin taking 30 minutes before your bedtime according to the destination time zone.

Possible Side Effects

The most common side effect that comes from taking melatonin supplements is drowsiness. For this reason, drinking alcohol, operating machinery, or driving is explicitly discouraged while taking Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer tablets. Additionally, pregnant women and nursing mothers should not take this product. If you are under 18, have a medical condition, or on medication for a medical condition, it is advised you consult your doctor before taking. Only take for a maximum of two months. If longer usage is needed, take a minimum of a week off before beginning to take Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer again.


Controlled Delivery Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer by Nature’s Origin regularly retails for about $7.99. However, when you by directly from their website, you get a bottle of 60 tablets for $5.99. Prices do not include shipping charges. There do not appear to be any subscriptions, auto-delivery, or other specials or deals going on at the current time.


Nature’s Origin backs their Controlled Delivery Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer tablets by a one year guarantee. If you are not fully satisfied with the product within one year of purchasing it and would like to return it, simply send back the unused amount in the original bottle along with a brief note explaining why you are returning the product. Once received, you will be issued a full refund. Generally this means only your purchase price is refunded and not shipping charges paid, but the policy does not explicitly state this. As far as customer reviews are concerned, there do not seem to be any available at this time. This is slightly disheartening as this does not give potential consumers any feedback to go on so they would know what to expect.


Melatonin 5mg Bi-Layer is a pretty good product. A couple of things in its favor are the fact that the tablets are controlled delivery, meaning one layer delivers an immediate dosage while the other layer provides an extended release. They also provide a one year guarantee to back their product. On the bad side of things, there is no current evidence of customer reviews. Another con is that the tablets are such a high dosage, when research points to smaller doses being sufficient.
