Melatonin Liquid (1 fl. oz.)
Your pineal gland is responsible for producing melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that promotes sleep; it serves as an endocrine hormone because it's released directly into the blood stream. Sleep allows the body and mind to repair themselves.
Specifically‚ melatonin works to regulate the sleep/wake cycle. The body's production of melatonin is activated by darkness‚ and lessened by exposure to light. Natural melatonin levels also tend to decline with age.
Several factors can make it harder for you to fall and stay asleep. Working the night shift can interfere because you need to be awake when it's dark outside and sleep when it's bright out‚ as can busy schedules. Nowadays‚ technology plays a major role; it exposes you to bright lights that may cause you to stay awake.
Melatonin Liquid by Pure Encapsulations may support your natural sleep cycles‚ without you having to swallow a pill. It may help you fall asleep more easily in the evening‚ while being less likely to make you feel drowsy in the morning. It might also support recovery from jet lag‚ which occurs when traveling due to time zone changes. Finally‚ melatonin may also have some antioxidant properties.
Each serving provides 2.5 milligrams of micronized melatonin. It has a naturally sweet flavor due to apple and black currant juice concentrate‚ as well as stevia extract. Take one-half to one full dropper daily‚ a half-hour to one hour before bedtime. One bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Melatonin Liquid contains 30 milliliters. Don't take this melatonin sleep aid if you're pregnant‚ breastfeeding‚ or taking medications like corticosteroids or MAO inhibitors.
