melatonin produced under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards. The natural vanilla-flavored

tablets are sweetened exclusively with xylitol and mannitol.

FUNCTIONS

Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland

in the back of the brain. Melatonin also occurs in small amounts in a variety of foods. In the body, melatonin

appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical

damage. Most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms.

The perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release.

At night or in the dark, the body’s melatonin production rises. The rise in plasma melatonin is thought to be

responsible for bringing on sleep. Nocturnal melatonin production is highest in children and begins to decline

from adolescence on until it is virtually absent in the elderly. Melatonin supports normal immune function by

helping maintain the activity of circulating natural killer cells. It also has been found to function as an

antagonist for stress-induced immune-suppression. Melatonin is considered a potent antioxidant that enters all

body cells to help prevent free radical damage. In the brain, melatonin is perhaps the most important

physiological antioxidant. Due to its lipid and water-soluble properties, it can freely cross the blood-brain

barrier. In vitro studies show that melatonin is more effective than glutathione in scavenging toxic hydroxyl

radicals, and also more efficient than vitamin E in neutralizing peroxyl radicals which can induce DNA damage.

Furthermore, melatonin stimulates the main antioxidant enzyme of the brain, glutathione peroxidase.

melatonin and support the body’s pineal gland function.
