Melatonin 6 Hour
Timed Release 3mg
Melatonin releases from the pineal gland, reaching its peak at night to help
maintain healthy cell division in tissues throughout the body. Secretion of
melatonin declines significantly with age, as the pineal gland becomes
calcified. Jet lag, shift work,
and poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.
Melatonin keeps our circadian cycle in tune as it communicates with the
body’s cells. Not only does
this hormone work to maintain cell health, it appears to regulate a system of
self-repair and regeneration.
As this hardworking hormone diminishes with age, our biological functions are
impaired. In addition to its
hormone actions, melatonin also has strong antioxidant properties. Melatonin
directly scavenges both hydroxyl and peroxyl free radicals, and it does so more
effectively than most other antioxidants. It also greatly potentiates the
efficiency of other endogenous and exogenous antioxidants.
Melatonin is especially important for protecting cellular DNA against
peroxynitrite damage by inhibiting peroxynitrite free radical reactions.
Many people use melatonin to help improve sleep. Some research has found that
melatonin increases the speed of falling asleep and adds to the quality of sleep
in about 60% of people who use it.
Dosage and Use
Take one capsule 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime, or as recommended
by a healthcare practitioner.
Melatonin is naturally secreted from the pineal gland at night, and
should be taken at night for optimal results.
If you have asthma or an autoimmune disease do not use melatonin.
