My review today is on Wellness Resources’ Melatonin .5mg. The makers claim that their product helps restore the natural sleep cycles. They also claim that their product can help those with jet lag since insomnia is a common symptom of jet lag. To find out more about this product by Wellness Resources, continue reading the rest of the review below. I will start by listing the ingredients in the capsules.




There is only one active ingredient in Melatonin .5mg. and three inactive ingredients, which comprise the capsule and act as binders or preservatives. Here they are:

Active Ingredient

  • Melatonin

Inactive Ingredients

  • Cellulose
  • Magnesium Stearate
  • Silica


The recommended dosage instructions for Melatonin .5mg is to take one capsule before bedtime. Since every individual is different, it is recommended that you start at one and go upward to multiple capsules a night if needed in order to get a better night’s sleep. You can take up to six total capsules per night, which equals 3 mg. Before bedtime usually means about 30 minutes prior to going to bed.

Possible Side Effects

Melatonin is produced naturally by the body, and it helps the body and mind relax so sleeping is easier. Taking a melatonin supplement can cause drowsiness, so take care not to drive or perform other tasks where mental alertness is critical, such as operating machinery. Additionally, if you are pregnant or nursing, you should not use Melatonin .5mg from Wellness Resources. You can consult with your doctor should you fall into these categories, but taking this product is not recommended.


Melatonin .5mg by Wellness Resources contains 180 capsules per bottle. If you buy directly from the manufacturer website, you can get each bottle for just $8. Some specials or shipping deals may be available periodically. Orders exceeding $49 get free shipping this Labor Day Weekend. These offers are available exclusively on the Wellness Resources website.


At this time, there does not seem to be any form of a money back guarantee should you find yourself unsatisfied with the effectiveness of the product. This is a bit of a concern considering that everyone reacts differently to melatonin supplements. Not only that, but there do not seem to be any customer reviews in order to get a gauge on how effective the product is by those who have already used it. This does not mean that reviews are utterly nonexistent, but they were not found by my research.


From what I have noted thus far, Melatonin .5mg by Wellness Resources is a pretty decent product. Its dosage is low enough so that those who need only that much can take only that much, while others who may need more can adjust their dosage accordingly. The price is quite low, which makes it affordable for just about anyone. There are a couple of points on the downside which need addressing. The lack of a guarantee causes some consumer wariness for one. For another, there seems to be a complete absence of consumer reviews, which offer potential consumers no insight to the product.
