Sleep Ingredients


Melatonin (2mg per serving)

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the brain and used by your body to help you fall asleep. Supplemental melatonin has been shown to improve sleep quality and reduce sleep onset latency.[1][2][3]

Research shows that the clinically effective dose of melatonin ranges from 1mg to 6mg.[4] It is best to use the lowest possible dose in order to mimic the normal physiological effects of melatonin and avoid prolonged blood levels.[5] That's why we designed Sleep with a 2mg dose of melatonin per serving, or 1mg per capsule.

We recommend starting with 1 capsule and increasing to the full dose of 2 capsules if needed.

L-Theanine (200mg per serving)

L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea and other natural sources. L-Theanine is not a sedative, rather it promotes a relaxed state without drowsiness.[9]

Research shows a range of benefits, including anti-stress and anxiety reducing benefits.[7][8] L-Theanine has also been shown to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep, reduce sleep disturbances, and reduce insomnia.[6][7]

Outwork Sleep includes a clinically effective dose of 200mg of L-Theanine per serving.

Saffron Extract (affron®) (28mg per serving)

Saffron is derived from the Crocus sativus flower. Modern research shows many promising benefits related to mood and sleep, including better sleep quality [10][11][12] and improved mental outlook [13][14].

Outwork Sleep includes a 28mg dose of affron® per serving. Affron® is a saffron extract standardized to 3.5% Leptricrosalides, a complex of bioactive compounds responsible for the beneficial effects.
