Melatonin Lozenge 5mg
Melatonin Lozenge 5mg by Seeking Health provides 5 mg of pure melatonin in an easy-to-use lozenge format. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone in the human brain, which plays a role in the circadian rhythm and the normal sleep-wake cycle. Within the human body, melatonin is produced in the pineal gland in the brain, synthesized from tryptophan, an essential amino acid found in dairy, poultry and other high-protein foods. Normal melatonin levels are needed for inducing a state of bodily rest and for healthy cellular regeneration during sleep. Healthy sleep is vital for nervous system health, cellular health, healthy cognition and mood, normal appetite, and for survival in general.
The sleep-wake cycle is controlled by the production and release of melatonin and other neurotransmitters in the brain. Factors such as light exposure, including light from the ever-present electronic devices in our offices and homes – computers, cell phones, televisions, etc. – as well as our diets, medications, and schedules, can affect or disrupt the production of the neurotransmitters and hormones that regulate this cycle. Melatonin supplementation may help support a healthy sleep cycle in certain individuals.
Within 30 minutes of desired bedtime, place 1 lozenge in mouth, or use as directed by your healthcare professional.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged.
