  • Item #: Melatonin

Melatonin's main use is to support improved sleep. It is especially useful when insomnia is related to difficulty falling asleep.

The pineal gland produces melatonin, a simple product of tryptophan and serotonin. In the pineal gland, melatonin is combined and released when the retina observes an absence of light. It won’t be made when there is bright light. Melatonin helps you fall asleep when the room is dark.

Melatonin also functions as an antioxidant. It searches and destroys the harmful hydroxyl radical. Like other "anti-aging" hormones, melatonin is produced in large amounts in early life, but reduces steadily with age. That is why many people have more trouble falling asleep later in life. Chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields may also reduce melatonin production. Using a melatonin supplement at bedtime will not only help you get to sleep more easily, but can slow down your aging process.
