The hormone melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland. As a supplement, it is useful for regulating sleep and the body's daily rhythmic cycle, making it ideal for jet lag. Melatonin is also an important antioxidant which acts as an effective scavenger of free radicals. Various factors may cause melatonin levels to become low, such as inadequate dietary intake of its precursors (tryptophan and serotonin), normal aging, insufficient exposure to natural light, and certain medications. Melatonin may support a healthy immune and stress response.

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 merlatonin’s principal functions is to help regulate sleep by controlling our day and night biological rhythms, known as there ‘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:
• Normal aging
• Poor sleeping habits, such as going to bed too late or sleeping during the day
• Inadequate darkness for the duration of the night
• Insufficient exposure to natural light during daytime
• Excessive mental stress
• High caffeine or alcohol consumption too close to bedtime
• Diet low in nutrients needed to create melatonin
• Inability to properly use the nutrients needed to create melatonin

Helpful Hint:
To help your body produce melatonin, make your bedroom as dark as possible, as light destroys the flow of melatonin. Close those shades and keep electronics out of the bedroom (yes, that means computers, cell phones, nightlights and bright digital alarm clocks).

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.
