Are you one of the 40 million people in America who don’t get enough sleep each night? If so, the effects may extend beyond just leaving you feeling tired during the day. Getting too little sleep can impact your health in some surprising ways, leading to a weaker immune system, irritability, lower productivity, and it can even impact your weight and food choices since you may be more likely to reach for sugary, high-carb snacks as a quick-fix for low energy levels.

The good news is, there’s a better way—say goodbye to restless nights with the help of an innovative sleep supplement featuring carefully curated, science-backed ingredients that are non-habit forming and work together to promote rest and relaxation.

Swanson’s Comprehensive Sleep Formula delivers a powerful trio of studied relaxation and sleep-supporting ingredients—melatonin, GABA and valerian root—in a unique tri-layer tablet to allow immediate and delayed release of these nutrients to help you get the rest you deserve. Here’s how our premium ingredients work, and why tri-layer tabs make a difference.

Melatonin for Sleep

Melatonin is a hormone that signals your body when it’s time to rest, but age and other factors, such as a disrupted sleep schedule or too much screen time before bed, can cause your body to make less melatonin than it should.

Supplementing with melatonin can help get your sleep schedule back on track—but not all melatonin supplements are created equal. Our Comprehensive Sleep Formula delivers 10 mg of melatonin in stages, releasing 5 mg of melatonin initially, followed by another 5 mg throughout the night to more closely mimic your body’s natural melatonin production.

Gamma-aminobutyric Acid (GABA) for Relaxation

GABA is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in calming activity in the nervous system. What does that have to do with sleep? If you’ve ever lain awake in bed with your mind racing, low GABA may be to blame.

Studies have linked GABA supplements to better sleep and less stress, making it the perfect partner for melatonin. We’ve included 100 mg of GABA in our Comprehensive Sleep Formula to help you relax, unwind, and prepare your mind for restful sleep.

Valerian Root for Relaxation & Sleep

Earthy-scented valerian root is a time-tested herb that provides a calming effect on the brain and nervous system, in part due to its synergistic relationship with GABA. Compounds within valerian root, including valerenic acids, help fight stress and promote calmness and tranquility while inhibiting the breakdown of GABA in the brain.

This stress-busting, mood-supporting herb is clinically shown to help you achieve deep sleep faster and sleep soundly for longer. Comprehensive Sleep Formula includes a potent 200 mg of valerian root standardized to 0.8% valerenic acids.

Why Tri-Layer Tabs?

Restful, restorative sleep occurs in stages. Our science team wanted to develop a truly unique sleep supplement that encourages and works with the natural progression of the mind and body from a wakeful state to sound sleep.

Tri-layer tabs have an active matrix core with multiple layers that enable timed delivery of sleep-supporting ingredients throughout the night, giving your body the right support at the right time to help you fall asleep and rest soundly.

Comprehensive Sleep Formula is a 100% transparent formula with no hidden ingredients or proprietary blends, so you know exactly what you’re getting—and this 3-in-1 supplement is an amazing value. Try it today and experience the tri-layer difference.

Scent Note: Valerian root has a natural, earthy scent, which you may notice in this formula—it’s simply an indicator of a high-quality herbal ingredient. Leave your bottle open overnight to let the aroma fade.

Q: Why does Comprehensive Sleep Formula have an earthy smell?

A: Valerian root, one of the 3 sleep-supporting ingredients in this formula, has a natural earthy scent. You may notice it especially when you first open your bottle of Comprehensive Sleep Formula—but don’t worry, the earthy scent is simply an indicator of a high-quality herbal ingredient. Leave your bottle open overnight to let the aroma fade.

Q: How long will it take before this supplement starts working?

A: Comprehensive Sleep Formula should be taken 20 minutes before bedtime to allow time for the initial release of ingredients before you plan to sleep. Studies on valerian root have shown significant improvements in sleep quality after 2 weeks of supplementation. Results may vary and benefits are best seen with consistent use.

Q: Is this sleep supplement habit forming?

A: No. The ingredients in this sleep aid are not habit forming.

Q: Will this leave me feeling groggy in the morning?

A: Comprehensive Sleep Formula is designed to release sleep-supporting ingredients in stages to help you fall asleep and sleep soundly through the night. Take it early enough to allow for at least 7 hours of sleep and you should wake feeling rested and ready for your day.

Q: When is the melatonin in this formula released?

A: The initial release of melatonin from the two outer layers of the tablet occurs within 30 minutes after taking the tablet, followed by delayed release of the melatonin from the inner layer of the tablet.
