I’m sure this natural oil needs no introduction. If it does then you must be living under a rock.

Each serving of U Omega contains rich amounts of Essential Fatty Acid Omega 3 oils: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). The body actually can’t synthesize these oils without them coming from fish (or another food source) or supplements.

Micro Melatonin is a powerful free-radical scavenger and wide-spectrum antioxidant which offers support for healthy sleep.Melatonin is a hormone, produced in the pineal gland of the brain.

Micro Melatonin comes in a bottle of 90 quick dissolve cherry flavored tablets. Taking one capsule daily supplies you with 250 micrograms (1/4 of a 1 milligram dose) of melatonin. These tablets come in a smaller dosage than what’s commonly sold on the market, but less is more and this gives you the flexibility to find the perfect dosage for you. The tart cherry extract powder (100mg) is also meant to increase levels of melatonin and gives the tablets a lovely fruity taste. As a frequent traveler and electronics enthusiast taking two tablets before bed has benefited my ability to fall asleep fast, and have a deep sleep every night.
Sleep is essential to great health since this is when our body needs to repair itself. Many people have sleep problems and suffer from sleep onset insomnia due to stress, anxiety or chronic worry.

shift circadian rhythms and suppress melatonin
