Melatonin, a hormone we all produce naturally, is intimately involved in synchronizing the body's hormone secretions, setting the brain's internal clock and generating circadian rhythms. Preliminary findings suggest it may help support normal nerve function and healthy blood pressure. Formulated with guar gum (a water-soluble fiber), our Melatonin works consistently over a 4-hour period. Pharmaceutical quality and guaranteed potency set this product above the rest.*

Melatonin

 

Product Code: 00634            Capsules per Bottle: 180

 

Each size 3 vegetarian cellulose capsule contains:

 

Melatonin

2 mg

  Other ingredients: guar gum.

 

Description: The naturally occurring pineal hormone, melatonin, is involved in the circadian regulation and facilitation of sleep, the inhibition of cancer development and growth, and the enhancement of immune function [1]. Formulated with guar gum, our melatonin works consistently over a 4-hour period. Guar gum is a water-soluble fiber which has been shown to slow the rate of absorption of sugars and other nutrients without decreasing total absorption over time.

 

Uses: Some studies suggest that a shortened duration of nocturnal sleep is associated with immune suppression and a higher risk of disease [1]. Presently, scientific evidence is accumulating to support melatonin supplementation as a useful aid in achieving restful sleep for patients with some types of insomnias and circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSDs) [2]. Insomnia and CRSDs, whether chronic or transient, affect a wide range of individuals, including many adults of advanced ages, those with severe visual impairments, shift workers, and travelers moving across many time zones. A feature common among CRSDs and some forms of insomnia is sensitivity to the hormone melatonin, which is secreted naturally by healthy, normal pineal glands during periods of darkness [1, 2]. Clinical data suggest that exogenous melatonin may help to regulate the circadian clock located in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus [2]. As the circadian clock is involved in autonomic cardiovascular regulation, nighttime melatonin intake has also been shown to help regulate blood pressure [3].

 

Outside of the pineal gland, gastrointestinal tissue contains the highest concentrations of naturally occurring melatonin [4]. There, melatonin has been demonstrated to prevent ulcerations of gastrointestinal mucosa by an antioxidant action, reduce secretion of hydrochloric acid, stimulate the immune system, foster epithelial regeneration, and increase microcirculation [4].

 

Melatonin can also be secreted naturally by other tissues including retina, Harderian glands, gut, ovary, testes, bone marrow and lens, suggesting its importance in the function of these tissues [5]. Several studies have shown that melatonin reduces chronic and acute inflammation, and as a consequence, melatonin improves the clinical course of illnesses which have an inflammatory etiology [5]. The immunomodulatory properties of melatonin are well known; it acts on the immune system by regulating cytokine production of immunocompetent cells, reduces adhesion molecules and pro-inflammatory cytokines and modifies serum inflammatory parameters.

 

Melatonin is also both a direct and indirect antioxidant, scavenging free radicals, stimulating antioxidant enzymes, enhancing the activities of other antioxidants or protecting other antioxidant enzymes from oxidative damage [5]. Moreover, recent studies have implicated melatonin as a neuroprotective molecule in neurodegenerative disorders where brain oxidative damage has taken place [5].
