Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin is an herbal supplement that according to the manufacturer’s website “works in harmony with your natural sleep cycle to give you the tranquil rest you deserve, so you can awaken feeling refreshed.” This herbal remedy is manufactured by Puritan’s Pride, a long established vitamin and herbal supplement company with its headquarters located in Long Island, New York. The company produces and sells over 1,000 vitamins, herb and nutritional supplements and minerals. They have been on the market for more than 50 years.
According to the company, this supplement is “perfect for people experiencing occasional sleeplessness, those with jet lag, or anyone seeking to improve their quality of rest”. However, Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin was not evaluated by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and there are no medical studies to back up the producer’s claims.
Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin Ingredients
Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin contains: Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate), Magnesium (as Magnesium Oxide), Valerian Root (Valeriana officinalis), Hops (Humulus lupulus) (flower), Scullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) (aerial), Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) (flower), Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) (aerial), Inositol, LTaurine, Melatonin, Gelatin, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate and Silica
Valerian Root is one of the most important ingredients from Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin. The plant, indigenous to Asia, North America and Europe, is used most commonly as a sedative to treat patients with insomnia. According to several studies, Valerian is a traditional herbal sleep remedy and it appears to be a safe sedative/hypnotic choice to treat patients who suffers from mild to moderate insomnia.
Another key ingredient used in this supplement is Melatonin, which may help our bodies “fix” the sleep-awake cycle. Melatonin supplement can be either natural (made from the pineal gland of animals) or man made. Melatonin can be used to treat insomnia but beyond that, there is little scientific evidence that the substance has any role in supporting a healthy body or in treating disease.
Melatonin was also associated with several mild side effects. People, who have taken melatonin during clinical studies, have reported headache, sleepiness, stomach discomfort, a “heavy-head” or depression.
According to the manufacturer, the directions for adults are to take one capsule of Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin at bedtime as Melatonin may produce drowsiness. The company also advices customers to discuss the medications and supplements they take with their health care providers.

We believe Puritan’s Pride Super Snooze with Melatonin may be a good choice for people who are experiencing occasional sleeplessness. However, the product does not address the possibility of a root cause, a deeper issue affecting one’s inability to sleep regularly as well.
If you are experiencing consistent trouble achieving peaceful intervals of quality sleep, you may want to seek a more complete and powerful product. A drug or herbal supplement induced sleep may not be a good long term solution for individuals who experiencing headache, emotional liability, being quick to anger or to tears, and listlessness.
Super Snooze with Melatonin may not be suitable for use with other supplements based on the ingredients alone.
