Why doesn't Sleepinox have Melatonin?
Dr. David Mahjoubi of the Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles noticed many of his patients using Melatonin woke up with morning grogginess, felt "cranky" the next day, and even had possible "short-lived" depression. Furthermore, while Melatonin is naturally occurring in the body, it is not a plant-based substance. Just as taking substances naturally occurring to the body may not be safe, e.g. Testosterone, there are not enough studies proving the safety of exogenous Melatonin.
