MELATONIN 3 mg
Melatonin is most commonly used to regulate circadian rhythm and sleep/wake
cycles. It can benefit those who experience sleep disturbances such as
trouble falling asleep, waking during the night, daytime drowsiness,
insomnia, or jet lag.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted primarily by the pineal gland in the brain.
It is a derivative of the amino acids L-Tryptophan, 5-HTP, and Serotonin,
and maintains the body’s circadian rhythm or internal clock. Light
suppresses the body’s production of melatonin and darkness stimulates it,
therefore, traveling across several time zones, shift work, poor vision and
blindness can all disrupt normal melatonin cycles. Some speculate that
exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields from common household
appliances can also have a negative impact on melatonin production.
Additionally, there are certain individuals who may naturally produce low
levels of melatonin. Studies show that melatonin taken orally can benefit
both those with disrupted circadian rhythms and those with low melatonin
levels, by decreasing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep,
increasing the number of sleeping hours and boosting daytime alertness.
For those wanting to prevent jet lag when traveling, melatonin
supplementation can reduce the number of days required to establish a
normal sleep pattern, diminish sleep latency, and reduce daytime fatigue.
Melatonin should be started on the first day of travel around the expected
bedtime of the destination and continued for several days.
For individuals with either chronic or acute sleep disturbances, melatonin
should be taken one-half hour before bedtime and then repeated during the
night if needed.
Melatonin also exhibits antioxidant properties. It has direct free radical
scavenging effects and plays a role in increasing antioxidant enzymes, such
as superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase, and decreasing
prooxidant enzymes. It exhibits neuroprotective effects in various parts of
the central nervous system and has been studied for its role in both the
treatment and prevention of neurodegenerative disorders such as
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease.
