Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland which serves to synchronize and coordinate biological functions of the body. This hormone appears in foods in only trace amounts and, therefore, supplementation supports the natural functioning of the pineal gland. Melatonin is important in regulating sleep, circadian rhythm and the body's natural time clock. Melatonin is also an important antioxidant, rapidly taken up by the brain, which acts as an effective scavenger of highly toxic free radicals that induce DNA damage. The amount of melatonin produced by our bodies seems to decrease with age.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is melatonin?

  • Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland located within the brain that regulates the body’s internal clock. Levels of melatonin in the body fluctuate with the cycles of night and day. The highest melatonin levels are found at night.

Does melatonin occur in the diet?

  • Melatonin is present in foods only in trace amounts.

How much is usually taken?

  • Normally, the body secretes melatonin for several hours per night. This effect is typically best duplicated with 1–3 mg of melatonin taken one to two hours before bedtime. However, the amount needed is very individual and some people may require less or more than this range to compensate for reduced body production of melatonin. Melatonin should not be taken during the day.

Are there any side effects or precautions?

  • Very few side effects have been observed with melatonin; however, morning grogginess, undesired drowsiness, sleepwalking, and disorientation have been reported. Pregnant or breast-feeding women should not take melatonin. Individuals with severe depression or schizophrenia, epileptics, and those with autoimmune disease should take melatonin only under medical supervision.

Are there any potential adverse drug interactions?

  • None have been reported.

Melatonin Sustained Release provides 2 mg, 3 mg or 6 mg melatonin in a sustained release tablet. The hormone melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland. As a supplement, it is useful for regulating sleep and the body's daily rhythmic cycle, making it ideal for jet lag. Melatonin is also an important antioxidant which acts as an effective scavenger of free radicals.

Various factors may cause melatonin levels to become low, such:-

  • Inadequate dietary intake of its precursors (tryptophan and serotonin)
  • Normal aging
  • Insufficient exposure to natural light
  • Certain medications.

Melatonin may support a healthy immune and stress response.

Due to melatonin's relatively short half-life in the body, a sustained release formula may be more suitable for those who experience difficulty staying asleep through the night.
