Go Powders Melatonin Sleep Spray
Raw Powders™ offers Melatonin Sleep Spray!
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone, naturally secreted by our body in the pineal gland of the brain. Melatonin levels are usually low during daylight hours, and at night the pineal gland takes care of your sleep, producing more melatonin hormone. Melatonin can also be used as a supplement - Raw Powders offers extra high-quality melatonin sleep spray.
This supplement will help you fall asleep faster, so it may be useful for those who are particularly in need of such help . Melatonin helps to reduce the negative sensations caused by air travel through different time zones . Melatonin is especially convenient to take in the form of spray - 3 sprays are equal to 1 mg of Melatonin.
1. Melatonin contributes to the reduction of time taken to fall asleep.
2. Melatonin contributes to the alleviation of subjective feelings of jet lag.
Consult the doctor before starting to use any supplement if you are pregnant or under another medicine or have any health malaise. In case of unwanted physical or mental changes, discuss usage and dosage with a professional. Any supplementation is forbidden for people under 18.

“Other ingredients” in capsules and tablets.
When excluding the phrase “other ingredients”, we refer to those components that are not a part of the primary substance. However, those are still required for such supplemental forms as capsules and tablets.
Binders, excipients and fillers are necessary for previously mentioned types of supplements - they are bulking agents that keep the whole content together, ensuring better consumption and absorption.
Further, there are two different types of excipients, binders and fillers - synthetic and natural. Raw Powders mission for today is to eliminate as many synthetical ingredients as possible and make the supplement “cleaner”. Thus we are still improving our formulas and searching for the best components. So, for now, we will represent all of the binders and fillers that we use in Raw Powders supplements:
Magnesium Stearate: regulates the stickiness and flowability. For example, if the primary substance is not powdery enough, it will not fill the capsule because of its stickiness. Same with the too powdery substance. Magnesium Stearate is made of magnesium and stearic acid, derived from vegetable oil. All of the Raw Powders supplements contain a very small amount of Magnesium Stearate (3-8 mg). Magnesium Stearate is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Microcrystalline Cellulose: is a filler that we are currently replacing with Rice flour. Our digestion system cannot absorb Microcrystalline Cellulose (it passes unabsorbed). Fillers ensure that the capsule and tablet are filled in the correct proportions - fills cavities that remain empty.
Rice flour: a filler that could be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. Rice flour is a natural, gluten-free filler.
Hypromellose: is the capsule itself (covers the content inside). Hypromellose is a form of cellulose that can be consumed by vegetarians and vegans. The standard sizes of a capsule are 0.68 ml (250 - 400 mg) or 0.95 ml (350 mg - 700 mg). Therefore, the smallest content of a primary supplement substance should be 250 mg, to fill the whole capsule itself. However, because of dosage instructions and features of the primary substance, it doesn't reach the minimum required capacity. Because of that, such fillers as Microcrystalline Cellulose or Rice flour are needed - to fill the gaps.
Maltodextrin: another filler, used in tablets. The human body digests maltodextrin, it is also gluten-free. However, maltodextrin is high in sugar, so people having issues with high blood sugar levels, should consult with a physician.
Silicon dioxide (Silica or Syloid 244): Silica protects the supplement from moisture and supports the stable shape of a capsule. This compound is found in herbs, plants and high-fibre food sources. Silicon dioxide aids in skin, bones, nails, hair and teeth health maintenance.
Gelatin: is the capsule/soft gel itself (covers the content inside). Gelatin is a natural compound, rich in protein, however, not vegan. Gelatin is important for bones, nails, hair and joints health.
Dicalcium/Tricalcium Phosphate: is a binder used in the manufacture of tablets. Dicalcium Phosphate binds the whole content into a solid tablet-shaped form. The compound is composed of phosphorus and calcium, thus essential for bones, heart, teeth, blood, cells and muscle health.
Glycerin: a sweetener that has moisturizing properties.
Sorbitol: a sweetener.
Citric acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate: preservatives.
According to the FDA and the EFSA, all of the mentioned ingredients can be safely used [1, 2].
Shake well before use. 3 sprays (1 mg melatonin) into your mouth 20 minutes before bedtime.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Best before end date and batch number: see container. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
