Melatonin releases from the pineal gland, reaching its peak at night to help maintain healthy cell health throughout the body.82 Secretion of melatonin declines significantly with age, as the pineal gland becomes calcified.83 Jet lag, shift work, and poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.84-86
Melatonin keeps our circadian cycle in tune.87,88 Not only does this hormone work to maintain cell health, it appears to regulate a system of self-repair and regeneration.89-94 As melatonin diminishes with age, our biological functions are impaired.95,96 Melatonin also has strong antioxidant properties. It directly scavenges both hydroxyl and peroxyl free radicals, and it does so more effectively than most other antioxidants. It also greatly potentiates the efficiency of other endogenous and exogenous antioxidants.97 Melatonin is especially important for protecting cellular DNA against peroxynitrite damage by inhibiting peroxynitrite free radical reactions.98 Some research has found that melatonin increases the speed of falling asleep and adds to the quality of sleep in about 60% of people who use it.99-102

I'm so glad I finally started taking this melatonin. For years I've had a hard time getting to sleep, and staying asleep. I take 3mg melatonin nightly. It took 2 wks before I noticed the effects. Now I take melatonin when getting ready for bed, and I fall asleep shortly after my head hits the pillow. I still wake up, if something wakes me up, but I'm able to go right back to sleep. I feel so much more rested in the morning now. And I wake up much easier and earlier in the morning. Don't know if it will work for everyone, but it's done wonders for me.

It has guaranteed me good nights of rest without waking during the night like I was doing before. Am trying to convince my daughter, who has trouble sleeping, to give it a try.

I regularly take this product at the same time every evening and it helps me get a good night's sleep. I have tried another brand and came back to this one because it just didn't work as well as Life Extension's Melatonin.
Melatonin, 3 mg
from San Jose, CA
I take it one hour before bed every night and have a good nights sleep and very relaxed.
Melatonin, it works
By Flying golfer

About Me Regular User
I place the tablet under my tongue as I get in bed. It slowly dissolves in my mouth as I unwind watching a thirty minute comedy. The minty taste refreshes my mouth and relaxes me. I fall asleep gently and stay asleep till morning. I use this maybe four times a week. I am very athletic and sometimes just fall into bed and forget to take it. On those nights sometimes I am restless, and do not sleep as well.

I have been taking Melatonin since 1995 daily at bedtime per recommendation of my doctor. There are many benefits including help to fall sleep.

I have been using this product for 17 years. It works as good today as it did the day I started taking it. I highly recommend this product.
Excellent little pill

It is a very good product, effective and inexpensive and it has several benefits not only for a better night sleep but to strengthen the immune system, etc.
