Product Information Menu
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 sleep like a baby!
By health conscious senior
I take 1 pill about 30 minutes before bed. i fall right asleep, stay asleepand wake up without feeling any aftereffects or side effects. I tried a lowerdose but 10 mg seems to be the right dose. I never miss a night and neverfeel unrested. I'm going to be 70 years old and many people my age arepoor sleepers. I keep recommending LEF's melatonin to everyone, althougheach person has to find their proper dose. I obviously am happy with 10 mg.I'm taking it for about a year at this mg. dose. Very satisfied!~ Would noteven chance trying another formula because I know how well this works for me.
I sleep well!

By I don't have one.
from Southgate, Michigan
Unfortunately, as I get older, I experienced problems with getting to sleep and staying asleep. I find that if I take one 10 mg Melatonin about 45 minutes before I plan to go to bed, itreally alleviates both of those problems. I would seriously recommend taking this product rather than a prescription for this type of thing.
from Napa, CA
Taken 1/2 hour before bedtime you fall asleep fast and stay asleep. Wake up with no groggy feeling. One thing noticed was I dream alot more when taking melatonin.
