Schiff Melatonin Plus for Jet Lag

Schiff Melatonin Plus - Does It Work?-Review

What is Schiff Melatonin Plus?

Schiff Melatonin Plus claims to help maintain regular sleep patterns while reducing stress, supporting nervous system functioning and jet lag. This review will examine various aspects of this product ranging from ingredients to customer support, helping you determine if this is the best jet lag solution for you.

Ingredients & How It Works

The key active ingredients in this product formula include Melatonin and Theanine, 2 popular substances often used in jet lag solutions available on the market. Sleep-inducing Melatonin encourages sound and restful sleep while Theanine is an amino acid known to relax the mind and reducing anxiety, promoting sleep. The manufacturer claims to have included vitamin B into the formula, however, we cannot find the exact quantity of this ingredient and thus can not say what extent it impacts the performance of the product. While these ingredients are beneficial for most of the symptoms associated with jet lag, it is unfortunate to note that this product does not offer a dual action formula as provided by competitor brands. The ‘day’ formula often includes energizing Ashwagandha and stress supporting GABA; thus offering a total care solution. Furthermore, we cannot tell if this product was produced in a GMP certified facility or went through third-party testing. This is a concern.

Daily Serving

The concentration of melatonin is half (3mg) of the market standard (6mg) which may likely impact the product’s effectiveness in supporting sleep. For best results, customers should take 1 tablet at bedtime. We suggest not exceeding the daily recommended dosage. Do not drink alcohol or drive once this tablet has been taken. Consult your doctor before use as melatonin is known to contradict with many medications. This product is not intended for children or pregnant and nursing mothers.

The Cost

Schiff Melatonin Plus is currently unavailable for purchase online. The manufacturer, as well as third-party sites, do not have stock of this product and we are uncertain when, or if, it will become available again. As there are no discounts, package deals, or even the price per unit available - we cannot say if it is of value or not.  


Schiff offers a 30-day guarantee for products that were bought from their website only. This means that the returns policy does not apply to this product as it is not available for purchase on the manufacturer's website. Furthermore, there have been many customer reviews complaining that this product was ineffective and did not support their sleep or jet lag.

Our Review Summary Of Schiff Melatonin Plus

Schiff Melatonin Plus has a formula of popular ingredients that have been known to support jet lag, however, the concentration of the key active ingredient is half that of the market standard. This, combined with the lack of a day formula, limits this product’s effectiveness and thus prevents it from offering a total care solution. While the manufacturer offers a guarantee, it does not apply to this product. The lack of GMP certification and product availability is also a concern. These reasons, as well as many negative customer reviews, is why we do not recommend this product.
