Melatonin is a hormone that is released from the pineal gland, a pea-sized endocrine gland located in the brain. Specific nutrients and other biochemical substances are required for the body to create melatonin, such as the amino acid tryptophan and the hormone serotonin, along with vitamin B6, folate, SAMe and iron. However, many people do not make enough melatonin, and therefore benefit from additional supplementation. Our product offers 3 mg of quality melatonin in each tablet, along with 10 mg of vitamin B6, one of its most important cofactors.
One of melatonin’s principal functions is to help regulate sleep by controlling our day and night biological rhythms, known as the ‘circadian rhythm’ or our 24-hour biological clock. Melatonin regulates the body’s sleep response when exposed to natural light. Our bodies release more melatonin in darkness to prepare for sleep, and less melatonin in daylight. Melatonin also supports healthy immune and stress responses and is an important antioxidant, which acts as an effective scavenger of free radicals.
Factors that may reduce the production of melatonin include:
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take one tablet (3 mg) twenty minutes before bedtime per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Note: If pregnant or using a prescription drug, consult your health care practitioner. Do not take this product if you suffer from an autoimmune disease, depression, diabetes, or any endocrine disorders. Do not use this product while operating a motorized vehicle or heavy machinery.
