ADVANCED SLEEP SUPPORT FORMULA: Zenith Nutrition Melatonin is an advanced
formulation made from trusted ingredients that are carefully processed and manufactured. The effective, vegetarian, dietary formula provides a healthy 3mg dosage to promote better quality sleep. The supplement has gone through stringent quality testing for assurance on quality and potency and does not contain soy, sugar, corn, dairy, yeast and gluten. Supplementing with Melatonin is found to improve sleep quality, sleep length, morning alertness and health-related quality of life.
REGULATES SLEEP-WAKE CYCLE: Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone whose main role is to coordinate your sleep-wake cycle (circadian rhythm) by communicating information about the light in your environment to your brain. Melatonin is synthesized by the pineal gland in the brain and its secretion is stimulated by darkness and suppressed by light. It is produced by an amino acid tryptophan which is converted into neurotransmitter serotonin and then eventually melatonin. Disruption to your normal melatonin synthesis has serious consequences for your sleep and overall health.
SAFE/NON-ADDICTIVE SUPPLEMENT: While our body produces its own melatonin, as we get older, our pineal gland ages and becomes less effective at producing melatonin. This is why elderly people have difficulty sleeping throughout the night. Modern living can also decrease our natural production of melatonin. Unlike many sleep medications, you are unlikely to become dependant on melatonin or experience a hangover effect. Melatonin doesn’t work in the way as a sedative or sleeping pill. It doesn’t make you sleep but plays a critical role in helping to signal the body by regulating sleep and wake cycles.
ADDREESSES VARIETY OF SLEEP ISSUES: Sleep is highly important for maintaining overall health and in warding off chronic health issues. Low melatonin levels are associated with difficulty falling asleep (insomnia), poor quality sleep, development of mental illness, obesity and increased risk for heart diseases, depression, and a general feeling of discomfort. Melatonin supplements are considered safe and useful for a variety of sleep issues. Supplementing with melatonin may help people with disrupted circadian rhythms, people who suffer from insomnia, people who work the night shift and people who have jet lag.
HAS ANTIOXIDANT BENEFITS: Unlike most other free radical scavengers, melatonin is a multifunctional antioxidant. Melatonin can easily cross cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier because of its high lipophilicity and hydrophilicity. It can protect various biomolecules against damaging free radicals. It helps prevent degenerative changes in the central nervous system and reduces free radical damage to DNA. Melatonin has beneficial effects including stimulation of antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione and inhibition of lipid peroxidation.
EFFECTIVE IMMUNE SUPPORT: Melatonin is demonstrated as a modulator of immune cell production and function. Immune modulating effects of melatonin can lead to increased expression of the antioxidants superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase. Researchers believe that melatonin may function as a link between the circadian rhythm and the immune system. In elderly people, who have both impaired melatonin production and impaired immunity, a melatonin supplement could be extremely important for whole-body health.
HELPS MODIFY STRESS RESPONSE: Overstimulation of cortisol during the day from stress, inflammation, too much screen time, lack of natural light exposure, time zone changes or frequent travelling, natural aging, rotational shift, excessive intake of stimulants like nicotine, coffee, and tobacco can impede the levels of melatonin synthesis in the body. Melatonin controls various physiological processes, including circadian rhythms, mood regulation, anxiety, sleep, appetite, immune responses and neurodegeneration. Melatonin supplementation brings a calming effect, helps reduce the risk of depression and improves stress response.
