"I bought this product because I was having trouble falling asleep and would often wake up and be unable to go back to sleep for hours. I understand that a sub-lingual tablet is better, because stomach acid destroys a lot of melatonin's effectiveness. This product really helps and it is the best price around. The natural spearmint flavor is nice. At first, I had some really vivid dreams, though."
"I've been using Melatonin sublingual tabs for a few years, but decided to try Vitacost brand. This tablet does not melt! Just under the tongue took about 60 minutes...If you give it a little bite, about 10 minutes. I'm switching back to Superior Source instant dissolve -melts in about 30 seconds! Also sold by Vitacost :)"
"I prefer taking melatonin in a sub-lingual as it seems to work faster and more effectively. I have used the peppermint and the orange, but I really like the nice aftertaste from these. I am a fan. Good dosage and reliable. Vitacost did not offer a sub-lingual until recently, so I am happy to get a good quality at a great cost."
"For the first time after being a long standing customer of Vitacost, the company has disappointed me. The contain that the sublinguals come in is about 10 times the size it needs to be. After removing the giant cotton ball, the tablets sat on the very bottom of the container."
