Thanks to the fine people over at BrandBacker and Vita Sciences, I was lucky enough to receive this product at no charge for testing and reviewing purposes.  This will by no means influence my opinion, review and/or rating of the product you see featured below.


Vita Sciences is a New York based company.  They were founded n 2014 by a team of experts dedicated to providing high-quality natural supplements formulated to support health.  Their values are guided by a commitment to incorporating innovative scientific research in formulating exceptional natural products.


On March 26, 2015, I had the great honor and privilege of testing and reviewing their new Maxabsorb B12 product.  This is a B12 cream designed to be applied topically so that your body can absorb the necessary B12 it requires.  I have found that with regular use, I have an increased energy level like none that I have experienced in the past.  I haven’t had my blood levels checked, but I assume they have come up since my last physical.
That’s why when I was approved for the campaign to test and review their Maxabsorb Melatonin, I was really excited.  My experience told me that applying supplements topically was more pleasurable than taking them orally.  I have a hard time taking pills so I try not to take more than the ones I have to take.


Melatonin is the hormone that controls daily day-night cycles of sleep.  Some sleep disorders, such as insomnia and Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS), are attributed to low melatonin levels.  Travelers suffering from jet lag and swing shift workers may also benefit from supplemented melatonin.  As we age our bodies do not make sufficient melatonin.  Sleep enhancement is possible in healthy people as well with additional melatonin that may:
  • Decrease the time needed to fall asleep
  • Increase sleepiness
  • Increase sleep duration
Each measured dose of Maxabsorb Melatonin lotion from their airless dispenser delivers 3 milligrams of melatonin with a full press of the pump.  Just before bedtime, rub the easily absorbed, odorless lotion on your arms or legs.  For travelers trying to ease the effects of jet lag, apply Maxabsorb Melatonin lotion the day of travel close to the target bedtime at your destination.  This will aid in falling asleep faster, improves alertness during the day and reduces daytime fatigue.  Use the product throughout the trip and for a week after return to help your body readjust its natural sleep cycle.  Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle on your skin.



This lotion supplement is thick and white in color.  The odorless cream smooths over your skin effortlessly and absorbs very quickly.  Once it’s absorbed there is no greasy feel or thick residue left behind.  In my personal opinion, I would have liked this cream to have a light lavender or chamomile scent as those scents aid in the relaxation and sleep process.  However, I will admit that having an odorless cream is better than some other scents on the mark,et.  For that reason I’m not really complaining and it won’t affect my final rating.
As a chronic suffer of insomnia, I have tried many medications to help me sleep at night for any period of time.  I am currently on a medication that makes me feel as though I’m just taking sugar pills.  I have even tried taking oral melatonin supplements in the past and they didn’t prove to be very effective.  Then I was introduced to the Maxabsorb Melatonin Cream you see pictured above.
When it comes close to the time for me to go to bed (when I take my other medication), I simply rub a nice full pump of this thick cream into my arm and it starts to work within minutes.  For the last 4 nights, I have been able to go to sleep at a decent hour (before 3 am).  I sleep longer and sounder, which is simply a miracle.  Usually I wake up every hour or two because my sleep is interrupted for some odd reason.  When I wake up in the morning, I feel well rested and refreshed.  It’s a great feeling to have, to say the least.
If you suffer from chronic insomnia like I do, I suggest using this cream every night as I have been doing.  If you’ve had a stressful day and you find yourself tossing and turning, I suggest keeping this product on your night stand so that it’s within easy reach.  If you do a lot of flying or traveling between time zones and your inner clock gets turned upside down, I suggest that you carry this in your carry on, as it’s TSA approved, and use it as directed above and your inner clock will remain on schedule and won’t notice the time zone difference.  I guess what I’m trying to say is this…hurry and purchase one today so that you have it close by for any necessary situation.  You’ll thank me in the long run.  Really…hold your applause, no need to throw flowers folks…just throw money!  I’m only kidding!  About the money that is, not about the cream.  I recommend it for all skin types.
