Unisom Simple Slumbers use the power of natural ingredients to help you spend more time dreaming and less time tossing and turning. Our melatonin gummies, tablets, and dissolvable strips are easy to ingest and work with your body’s natural sleep cycle. If you find yourself looking for an alternative to drug-based sleep-aids, then try Simple Slumbers. They can help get you the drug-free rest that you crave. Read on to learn how they work.

How Unisom Simple Slumbers Works

Unisom Simple Slumbers are a 100% drug-free sleep support product that can help with occasional sleeplessness. Unlike our other sleep-aids, such as Unisom SleepTabs or SleepGels, that contain active medicinal ingredients (like doxylamine succinate or diphenhydramine HCI), Simple Slumbers is a dietary supplement that’s formulated with ingredients for a better night’s sleep that you can feel confident about.

These gummies, strips, and tablets are drug-free sleep-aids that support your body’s natural sleep cycle, which is driven mainly via the hormone melatonin. Unisom Simple Slumbers boost melatonin to help you fall asleep more easily as you go through all the sleep-cycle stages—helping you wake up feeling refreshed.†

What is melatonin?

Melatonin is the main ingredient in Simple Slumbers that helps you slip into a restful slumber. This hormone already exists within your body and is regulated by your sleep-wake cycle (or circadian rhythm). Your body releases melatonin when there’s less light as part of that natural cycle to make you feel drowsy and ready for sleep. Unisom Simple Slumbers contains 5mg of melatonin to give you a little boost in that process.

What are the other ingredients?

The other key ingredients in Simple Slumbers Gummies—lemon balm, passionflower, and vitamin B6—complement melatonin to form our proprietary sleep blend. Lemon balm and passionflower may have an ability to positively affect sleep and are believed to help calm the mind into a more relaxed state.1,2 Since sleep can affect so many areas of your health, including your brain, our tasty gummies also include a healthy dose of vitamin B6—which is essential to the proper functioning of your nervous and immune systems. All these ingredients come together in our drug-free Simple Slumber Gummies to help you overcome sleeplessness and support your health. Additionally, our Simple Slumbers Immunity Gummies are formulated with the Unisom® immunity blend of elderberry, zinc, and vitamins C, D, and E to help provide additional support to your immune system. And lastly, Simple Slumbers® Restorative Sleep™ tablets include a Unisom-exclusive heat-treated probiotic* to support deep, restorative sleep.†

What are the benefits of taking Unisom Simple Slumbers?

Finding a solution to sleeping issues is no easy task. First, you have to find out where your problems lie, like trouble falling asleep or waking up in the middle of the night. And then you have to figure out which sleep-aids may work best for you.

Unisom Simple Slumbers are an excellent option for those looking for a non-habit-forming solution that works with your body’s natural system. For example, the combination of melatonin, lemon balm, passionflower, and vitamin B6 in our Simple Slumbers Gummies provides a triple-effect benefit by helping you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up refreshed.† As a result of better sleep, you’ll have more energy to tackle the day. 

How To Take Unisom Simple Slumbers

Unisom Simple Slumbers are 100% drug-free sleep supplements that come in various forms to suit any lifestyle, including easy-to-chew gummies, tablets, and dissolvable strips. These sleep supplements are suitable for adults 18 years of age and older.

You have two sizes and flavors to choose from: bottles of 60 or 120 gummies, and either Midnight Raspberry or Golden Honey Lemon. Simple Slumbers gummies are also non-habit-forming, which means that you can take them in moderation without fear of dependency. It’s just what you need to help you relax into a good sleep. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Our Simple Slumbers melatonin supplements are non-habit-forming. They’re also gluten-free and safe for a wide range of people when used as directed. However, potential side effects can include headaches and daytime sleepiness. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle to reduce the chances of these occurrences.
