Nature’s way of supporting healthy sleep*
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone produced in the brain by the pineal gland, from the amino acid tryptophan. The synthesis and release of melatonin are stimulated by darkness and suppressed by light, suggesting the involvement of melatonin in circadian rhythm and regulation of diverse body functions. Levels of melatonin in the blood are highest prior to bedtime.
What does Melatonin do?
Darkness stimulates the production of melatonin from your pineal gland thus telling your body to sleep. With age, people tend to lose the ability to produce melatonin. This may explain why older people have disrupted sleep patterns and tend to go to bed and wake up earlier than when they were younger. A study of 334 people aged 55 and older found that prolonged-release melatonin produced significant and clinically meaningful improvements in sleep quality, morning alertness, sleep onset latency, and quality of life.*
People who work unusual hours such as night shifts or have added stress may also benefit from the sleep aid melatonin.
Melatonin is a very popular supplement for maintaining normal sleep cycles, especially when changing time zones. Because traveling through many time zones can upset your biological clock, melatonin can help adjust your sleeping patterns to the new time zone.*
