Great Mint Taste
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.

are the advantages of Liquid Melatonin?
Melatonin is very fast acting because it does not have to dissolve, but goes right
to work. Another advantage of liquid melatonin is that it is much easier to take
than a capsule or tablet, and the dosage is easily adjusted by the number of dropperfuls
consumed at one time ( each dropperful equals 1 mg of melatonin).
I take it with other medications?
It is wise to consult with your health care professional before taking melatonin.
What if I
have high blood pressure?
Consult your health care professional
prior to use.
When should I take melatonin and
how much should I take?
For best results, melatonin should
be taken approximately twenty minutes before bedtime. For most people, 3 mgs is
usually enough. Liquid melatonin, 1 dropperful equals 1 mg-so adjust your dosage
according to how much you need.
How often should
I take melatonin?
That is up to you. Some people take it every
day, others take it only when they feel like they may have trouble falling asleep.
Many people without sleeping problems take melatonin daily for its antioxidant
effects and/or because they believe it will help slow down the aging process.
melatonin habit forming?
No melatonin is not habit forming.
In fact, many people find that Melatonin may have residual sleep enhancing effects
for several days after taking it.
Who should take
Anyone over the age of thirty who needs help in
getting to sleep can take melatonin. The following people should not take melatonin
unless recommended by their health care professions: children, pregnant or lactating
women, people with seasonal affective disorders, people with acute schizophrenia,
manic patients, people with leukemia or lymphoma.
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.
