The world’s first, natural-source, fully potent melatonin.* Melatonin is the hormone produced by the pineal gland at night to induce deep, restful sleep, which is the primary time when the body detoxes, rejuvenates, and restores itself. Melatonin has received substantial publicity for its ability to promote natural sleep patterns, stimulate the immune system, and decrease jet lag, as well as its role as a powerful antioxidant.

What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland located in the center of the brain. Its secretion is inhibited by light and stimulated by darkness. Therefore, melatonin production peaks at night. Research shows that the body’s natural production of melatonin decreases with age. Melatonin has received substantial publicity for its ability to promote natural sleep patterns, stimulate the immune system, decrease jet lag and its role as a powerful antioxidant.
Better Sleep. The use of melatonin to promote restful sleep is well documented. Studies of low dose, oral melatonin in healthy adult volunteers showed that time to sleep onset, stage-2 sleep, and REM sleep was decreased without affecting the percentage of time in REM sleep or alertness after waking. In addition, evidence also indicates improved sleep benefits for children as well.
Jet Lag and Travel Fatigue.
Research shows the benefit of melatonin in minimizing the desynchronization of the body’s internal “time clock” due to air travel over time zones (jet lag). Typical symptoms of jet lag can include loss of appetite, irritability, gastrointestinal concerns, disorientation, difficulties concentrating, feeling mentally “off” and sleep disorders. Even world-class athletes, who sometimes travel over time zones to compete in athletic events such as the Olympics, have been studied to determine if melatonin can benefit them. Many top athletes take melatonin regularly to reduce the tiring symptoms associated with jet lag and travel.
What is a “nanized” preparation?
The word “nano” means very, very small. A “nanized” preparation contains premier quality herbs which have been “nanized” or pre-digested into very, very small particles which makes them extremely bioavailable.
Even those with poor digestion can rapidly absorb the “nanized” phytonutrients of the herbal complexes because they are so readily assimilable.
Nanized preparations really demonstrate the power of the old saying: it’s not what you take, but what you absorb that makes the difference.
Many people say they can feel the effect of taking a nanized preparation within minutes. This immediate effect is very important in anti-aging, where absorption of key nutrients is critical for direct strengthening of the immune system.
A Powerful Antioxidant.
Melatonin is a highly effective free radical scavenger. Studies show that using melatonin during times of increased free radical production (such as stress, physical exertion, etc.) can have a strong protective effect. Melatonin is readily absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier and the placenta, to enter the cells to help prevent oxidative damage. The reduction of melatonin levels with age may be a factor in increased oxidative damage in elderly people.
Growth Hormone Support.
Numerous studies have analyzed the effect of melatonin on the production of growth hormones. Evidence is mounting that the nocturnal increase of melatonin may influence pituitary hormone secretion. This may contribute to changes in the level of growth hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin being released in a 24-hour period.
Melatonin appears to help regulate the release of growth hormone in men. Melatonin may have a positive affect on bone metabolism in humans. Finally, there’s a once-living melatonin source so it can be used long term without degrading cellular DNA which is always the case with synthetic-source melatonin or other synthetic-source supplements.
Immune System Boost.
Recent observations have shown that melatonin helps modulate estrogen receptor expression and thus, have a positive effect in promoting healthy breast, prostate, lung and brain cell growth.
