Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm, an internal 24-hour time-keeping system that affects how and when we fall asleep and wake up. Levels of melatonin are low during the day and rise during the normal sleeping period at night. The amount of melatonin released at night varies among individuals and appears to diminish with age.
When your sleep patterns are disturbed, by travel or shift work for example, supplemental melatonin can help reset your body’s ‘clock’ and improve length of sleep and sleep quality. Potent 5 mg sublingual melatonin is absorbed under the tongue to enter the bloodstream quickly. It is all-natural, non addictive and very safe. Seniors, shift workers and those who travel to other time zones, are likely to benefit from supplemental use of melatonin.
