Melatonin is an antioxidant hormone made in the brain and released in response to darkness. Its main function is regulating our sleep/wake cycle, or circadian rhythm, which can be thrown off balance by changes in time zones and daylight savings time, by night work, by using artificial lights at night and even by aging. In addition, restless nights, disrupted sleep and sleep disorders can leave us fatigued, anxious and lethargic during the day. Supplemental melatonin can help reset the body’s internal clock and promote more restful sleep thereby enhancing the quality of life.
High doses of melatonin may also have therapeutic benefits for episodic cluster headaches and tardive dyskinesia. Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner to determine the correct dose for you.
Evergreen’s Melatonin 10 mg is a high potency product and may not be for everyone. If you experience daytime sleepiness or other side effects a lower dose may be appropriate.
