Melatonin is a natural hormone made in the pineal gland, a pea-size gland located in the brain. Since its first discovery in 1958, melatonin has been studied extensively and shown to play a significant role in mediating a wide array of cyclic behavior. Recent studies have demonstrated a role for melatonin in facilitating the onset of natural sleep. Natural secretion of melatonin decreases as one ages which can cause insomnia, especially in people over 50. By taking melatonin instead of other so called sleeping aids, rapid eye movement sleep is not suppressed nor does it induce "hangover" effects when used as directed.

What are the advantages of Liquid Melatonin?
Liquid Melatonin is very fast acting because it does not have to dissolve, but goes right to work.

How does melatonin work for jet lag?
Melatonin works by resetting your body's biological clock. When traveling across several time zones, your biological clock gets "out of sync" with the daily light/dark cycle of the new time zone. Normally, it takes several days for your body to adjust ( i.e. jet lag)/ When you take Melatonin at bedtime on your first night in the new time zone, you reset your biological clock to match that time zone. Thus, jet lag is prevented.
Is all commercially available Melatonin the same?
No. Sweet Dreams is one of the few US manufacturers of Melatonin with greater than 99.5% purity.
