A new product called “Sprayable Sleep” designed to safely reduce the unpleasant effects of insomnia without the high dosing of melatonin pills, will be available starting this July, according to manufacturer Sprayable Inc and reported by Mashable.
Sprayable Sleep is made entirely of water, melatonin and a derivative of tyrosine, an amino acid the body also produces naturally and is the main delivery vehicle for skin absorption, Mashable reports.
Users spray the aerosol on their neck, where the melatonin is gradually absorbed through the layers of skin and then the bloodstream, avoiding the digestive system entirely.
Despite the product’s purported success, at least two well-known sleep doctors say the spray needs a published study to be verified.
