Melatonin and its Functions
Melatonin is an important substance for balanced sleep.
It is produced in a brain structure called the pineal gland, which is responsible for the circadian rhythms of the body. The eye receives information about the light and darkness of the day and transmits this information to the brain.
When the sun sets, or there is less daylight, more melatonin is secreted to biologically prepare the body for sleep. Due to stress and natural aging, the production of melatonin can drop off dramatically.
Melatonin supplementation has been found to decrease the time it takes to get to sleep and increase total sleep time. Our formulations supply the necessary melatonin to assist with occasional sleeplessness.
Melatonin can also help fight free radical damage. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules generated in normal bodily processes that can cause cellular and molecular damage.
Melatonin sleep aid has been shown to be an antioxidant that combats free radical damage. It acts as an oxygen free radical scavenger and may prevent some chemical reactions in the body that generate free reactive oxygen species.
Restful sleep is critical for concentration, immune function, and overall vitality. Let Melatonin provide you with a safe, natural approach to occasional sleeplessness.
