Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies Review

Do Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies actually work?

Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies might taste alright but other than a low dose of melatonin they don’t offer much.

Created by ZzzQuil, a sub-brand of Vicks, there is a whole lot that is wrong with Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies. For starters, for a product that puts melatonin in the name, Pure Zzzs contains a ridiculously low amount.

It’s not just on the low side, it is outside the range of the daily recommended effective dose, which is between 3mg and 10mg. For people who are new to taking melatonin, this might be a good starting point to test your tolerance to it, but for most people, it won’t have much effect.

The rest of the ingredients in Pure Zzzs are hidden within a proprietary blend, which means we don’t know how much of each ingredient is included. Ordinarily, this would mean that we don’t know if the ingredients are included at effective and safe doses, but since the Pure Zzzs proprietary blend amounts to just 100mg we can be certain that none of the ingredients included is properly dosed. The only positive thing about this is that none of them can possibly be a danger to your health either.

We highly recommend avoiding the Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies (and the Pure Zzzs Melatonin tablets are exactly the same). Beyond the low dose of melatonin, they are unlikely to help you fall asleep or improve sleep quality in any meaningful way. Check our sleep aids best list for products that actually work and have ingredients that also help to improve sleep quality as well.  Generally we recommend RestAgain, which contains a much better dosage of melatonin along with a dozen ingredients that are actually shown to work, in their correct dosages, not just the lacklustre chamomile and lavendar.

Pure Zzzs Melatonin Gummies Review: Conclusion

Besides a low dose of melatonin, Pure Zzzs don’t offer a whole lot. The proprietary blend contains a couple of good ingredients but is so incredibly under-dosed as to be basically worthless.

The low melatonin dose is decent for anyone unsure about their melatonin tolerance and want to start out light, but we think it’s unlikely you’ll experience many benefits otherwise. As many of the customers reported, you will probably just end up eating double servings to get enough of the melatonin into your system to have an effect.

We would also have preferred to see a few ingredients that are aimed at improving sleep quality, not just helping you to fall asleep initially. Our choice would have been to include Ashwagandha and L-theanine, which are both supported by well-documented evidence of their ability to improve sleep quality.
