- Orange-flavored dissolvable tablet designed to support better sleep*
- Sleep provides numerous health benefits, including defense against oxidative stress and maintenance of a healthy immune system
- Contains no animal ingredients
Along with diet and exercise, getting enough sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Are you ready to restore your natural sleep cycles without sleeping pills? Normal sleep cycles help you feel more energized, promote healthy immune function, and support antioxidant defense. Pure Rest is USANA’s fast-acting, ultra-pure melatonin supplement. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles. Pure Rest is NOT a sleeping pill. Pure Rest’s orange-flavored tablets are designed to dissolve quickly, and their ultra-pure formula is both safe and effective. Pure Rest does not contain animal ingredients and is not habit forming. Enjoy a healthy sleep with Pure Rest.

Fast-acting melatonin supplement that promotes the body’s natural sleep and wake cycles*
Most researchers agree that getting enough sleep is equally important to long-term health as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Unfortunately, millions of individuals suffer from occasional sleeplessness—the incidence of which increases with age. Other lifestyle factors, such as stress or alcohol consumption, can contribute to poor sleep as well. Those who sleep, on average, less than six hours per night are more likely to be overweight, which can negatively impact health over time.
Poor sleep results in tiredness, poor concentration, reduced quality of life, compromised immune function, and an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Sleep deprivation has also been linked with increases in markers of oxidative stress and decreases in levels of antioxidant enzymes (e.g., SOD, glutathione reductase, etc.) in the brain, liver, and heart.
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone synthesized in the brain that regulates normal sleep and wake cycles. Melatonin levels naturally start to rise in the evening and remain elevated for most of the night, signaling to our body that it is time to sleep. As melatonin levels rise, we become less alert and feel drowsy. USANA’s Pure Rest supplement supports the natural increase of melatonin production at night. They are not sleeping pills. When taken at bedtime, Pure Rest supports the body’s natural circadian rhythms and has been clinically proven to help promote sleep, which restores the body after daily exposure to free radicals and general wear and tear.*
SLEEP IS KEY TO STAYING HEALTHY
There is abundant evidence showing that getting enough quality sleep will not only help people feel energized and be more productive, but it will also increase their odds of living healthier lives. While asleep, the body’s cells and tissues have the opportunity to recover from the previous day. Many major restorative functions in the body occur almost entirely during sleep, including tissue repair, muscle growth, and protein synthesis. Additionally, sleep is required to maintain normal brain and immune function.
Sleep is restorative with respect to oxidative stress, and melatonin, by promoting sleep and inactivity, allows the body’s natural antioxidant defenses to overcome the oxidative stress that accumulated during the day’s activity. Melatonin also acts as a free-radical scavenger and stimulates cellular production and activity of several antioxidant enzyme systems in the body. Additional mechanisms contributing to melatonin’s protective functions against oxidative stress involve prevention of certain types of cell damage and free-radical generation during the natural energy production process and promotion of normal electron transport within mitochondria—the cell’s power source.*
MELATONIN AND IMMUNE FUNCTION
Adequate amounts of sleep are necessary for healthy immune function. As a supplement that promotes sleep, Pure Rest plays a significant role in keeping the immune system functioning normally. Further, a variety of immune system cells have melatonin receptors and the ability to synthesize melatonin, suggesting its importance in immune cell function. Melatonin supplementation becomes especially important as we age, because daily melatonin production cycles stimulate immune cell synthesis and function, a process that
naturally declines as we get older.*
