Organika Melatonin 5mg
Melatonin is naturally made from the Pineal gland in the brain; as soon as it becomes dark at night, the absence of light stimulates the SCN in the brain (Superchiasmatic Nucleus), which encourages the Pineal Gland to produce Melatonin to encourage sleep.
Melatonin is produced naturally, but becomes drained with age, stress, dietary conditions and more.
If levels are low, this results in lower sleep quality, more time to fall asleep and lower energy levels as a result.
Supplementation helps to improve sleep quality, reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and ensure a deep rest that leaves you energized, invigorated and alert.
RECOMMENDED USE OR PURPOSE: Helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, e.g. shift-work and jet lag. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome. Helps to relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Helps to re-set the body’s sleep-wake cycle.
