Melatonin 6 Hour Timed Release
3 mg 60 vegetarian tablets
Item Catalog Number: 01786

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

    Comments about Life Extension Melatonin 6 Hour Timed Release, 3 mg 60 vegetarian tablets:

    This product works for me! I fall asleep within a few minutes of going to bed. Like clockwork, I wake up six hours later to go to the bathroom. Usually, I fall asleep about five or ten minutes after going back to bed. Occasionally, I have trouble going back to sleep, so I turn on the light and read or get up to enjoy quiet time on the computer. Melatonin seems to normalize my sleep-wake cycle.

    Comments about Life Extension Melatonin 6 Hour Timed Release, 3 mg 60 vegetarian tablets:

    I take Melatonin time released 1 hr. prior to going to bed for the nite. It relaxes me and when I put my head on the pillow I'm asleep in less than 10 mins. It's wonderful. Only one thing is that I get very vivid dreams. However, I wake up totally refreshed.
