Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin Cream Review

Vita Sciences  makes a variety of creams with many health benefits. You can get anything from joint and pain relief  to B12 in an easy to apply cream.

I had the pleasure of testing out their melatonin cream and as someone who not only suffers from insomnia, but has trouble swallowing large pills, I was pretty excited to see how a cream would would. The packaging is quite attractive in my opinion and the cream comes in an easy to use pump container. According to the directions, you are to apply one pump to skin one or more times before bed. This was kind of vague in my opinion. Where on your skin do you apply it? How may times do you apply? Is once enough or do I need to apply it a few times?

One pump equals out to 3mg of melatonin. I was lucky enough to have a bottle of sleep and relaxation pills, with the main ingredient being melatonin of course, nearby so I compared and one pump of the cream is the same as taking one pill. 

I have been taking melatonin for quite a few years now and the doctor actually gave us the okay to give it to our 8 year old who has Autism to help her power down her mind and fall asleep easier at night. I decided to do a little research on melatonin and found that it actually has more benefits such as preventative treatment for migraines and cluster headaches and decreases the amount of cholesterol produced in the gallbladder by regulating the cholesterol that passes through the intestinal wall which is good news for those suffering from gallstones.

The first night that I tried the cream, I only used one pump and applied to my arms. I noticed that it didn't really make me feel sleepier, however, it did feel like I slept better through the night. I still woke up groggy and tired, but it was also the morning of Steel City Con and I had to get up insanely early to get ready and head out the door. 

I tried the cream again a week later and this time I used two pumps, applying to my arms as well as my chest. I'm still not entirely sure where I am to be applying this, but I assume it doesn't really matter. This time, I did notice slight drowsiness as well as better quality of sleep through out the night. Still though, I didn't feel very rested the next morning. One thing about melatonin is that it doesn't completely knock you out. Meaning, if you do need to wake in the middle of the night, like to take care of a baby, you are able to wake up perfectly fine. I had no problem going back to sleep and I wasn't groggy when I did wake up in the middle of the night to take care of my son. It also doesn't give you a funny, "high" feeling like you get with typical sleeping pills. 

I expected this to maybe have a relaxing scent to it, but it has absolutely no scent at all. I personally would have loved it to have a light lavender scent to it as lavender is relaxing and calming and would also help you fall asleep as well as sleep better through the night. Basically, if this could be more like a lotion with melatonin in it, that would be fantastic. Although, nothing is really stopping you from mixing it with your normal lotion. I'm sure that would not hinder  the effects at all if this is something you would like to try out.
