Do you travel frequently, suffer from jet lag, work night shifts, or simply have a hard time falling asleep? Get enough sleep with our Liquid Melatonin, a fast-acting therapeutic alternative to tablets and capsules. Infused with natural mint flavour, each dose can be easily calibrated to suit individual therapeutic needs.
Melatonin is a hormone that’s naturally produced by the pineal gland, a cone-shaped structure in the brain. Its primary function is the maintenance of a healthy circadian rhythm; in other words, your sleep/wake cycle. As melatonin production decreases with age, lack of sleep can affect many aspects of daily life, including mental alertness, energy, and stamina. Sleep is critical for immune-system performance and great health in general.
Melatonin can shorten the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, as well as improve sleep duration and quality.
Adults: Take 5–50 drops daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Sensitivity to melatonin is different from person to person. Take once a day, at or before bedtime. Do not drive or use machinery for 5 hours after taking melatonin. For sleep restriction / altered sleep schedule; for delayed sleep phase disorder; and to restore sleep-wake cycle: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 4 weeks.
