Melatonin is a hormone manufactured from serotonin (our feel good hormone) and secreted by the pineal gland in our brain. The human body is governed by an internal clock that signals the release of many hormones that regulate various body functions. Melatonin is well known for its ability to control our sleep-wake cycle. It is secreted in darkness and suppressed by the light.
Children have much higher melatonin levels than adults and sadly as we age these levels drastically decrease. Anti-aging specialists believe melatonin is essential in slowing aging. Low levels of melatonin are also found in those with sleep and depressive disorders.
Melatonin + B6 is a high potency and fast acting formulation to promote natural sleep. It dissolves under the tongue and has a delicious cherry flavour. Decreased melatonin production and sleep issues can develop with aging and lifestyle factors including artificial light, shift work, late night/altered sleep schedules, and exposure to electro smog from laptops, television, and computers. Taking melatonin helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle, resets circadian rhythms, increases REM and total sleep time, and improves overall sleep quality. When combined with Vitamin B6, melatonin biosynthesis, secretion and absorption is enhanced. Melatonin is used to support difficulty falling asleep, waking in the night, jet lag, increase total sleep time (shift work and late night/altered sleep schedule). Finlandia’s Melatonin is a synthetically sourced melatonin product.
