Product Description

Melatonin, in its naturally-occurring form is an indole neurohormone produced in the brain by the pineal gland, from the amino acid tryptophan, with regulation of day-night changes in synthesis by serotonin N-acetyltransferase. The synthesis and release of melatonin is stimulated by darkness and suppressed by light, suggesting the involvement of melatonin in circadian rhythm and regulation of diverse body functions. Levels of melatonin in the blood are highest prior to bedtime. Supplemental melatonin has been used for a variety of medical conditions, most notably for disorders related to sleep, such as jet lag, delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS), and insomnia, for which there exists an ample body of research. NOW® offers one of the most economical and potent sources of high quality melatonin in this 3 mg quick release capsule
