Melatonin (For A Better Sleep)

$ 35.95




Melatonin is a hormone produced in the Pineal gland, which forms serotonin, the precursor of melatonin which, in turn, is the precursor of tryptophan. It governs our sleep cycles and regulates body rhythms to promote normal sleep. Excess blood levels of melatonin lead to a decrease in thyroid hormone levels. It is a neuroendocrine transducer that responds to light stimulation. Individuals with high levels of melatonin usually sleep longer and more soundly than those with lower levels. As age develops, less melatonin is produced by the body so sleep is usually shallower and of shorter duration.

A Polish study published in Prz Menopauzalny (Menopausal Review) just evaluated melatonin in menopausal women. Women who received 5mg of melatonin each night for 24 weeks not only slept better but also lost a little weight. I have to say, 5mg is a rather hefty dose!
