Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally that controls the body’s sleep and wake cycle. Melatonin supplementation can help promote restful sleep, and regulate sleep wake cycles.
Dosages for melatonin range from 5 mcg to roughly 3 mg.
Melatonin Mode of Action
Melatonin, also known at the sleep hormone is produced by the pineal glad when darkness occurs and the retina sends a message to a specific part of the brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). The body is then signaled to start producing melatonin which tells the body it is time for sleep. This can be disturbed by jet lag and use of electronic devices. Using a melatonin sleep aid, like our sublingual solution mimics this process and helps you fall asleep faster.
The acute toxicity of melatonin as seen in both animal and human studies is extremely low. Research shows even 800 mg/kg bodyweight was not lethal.
