Label Deception?

A recent study published in the journal JAMA found that "88% of gummies were inaccurately labeled, and only three contained a quantity of melatonin that was within 10% of what was listed on the label." 

Another 2022 study published by a group that included researchers from the University of Mississippi found that fewer than half of 30 immune supplements bought on Amazon had labels that accurately reflected their contents.

Customers have a right to accurate information, which is why our up-to-date product test results are always available on our website.

Melatonin dosage in particular has been a hot topic in recent years, and for good reason. Dosage varies greatly among melatonin supplements, and  inaccurate labeling compounds the issue. When Dr. Natalie created the original children’s sleep aid, her primary goal was to use the lowest possible effective dose of melatonin. Creekside Naturals Children’s Sleep Aid contains a combination 0.5 mg of melatonin and 2 mg of chamomile that safely and gently guides your child to sleep. What you see on our labels is what you get.
