MELATONIN SUSTAINED RELEASE

 

DESCRIPTION

Melatonin Sustained Release capsules contain 3 mg of
pharmaceutical-grade melatonin in a sustained release
capsule formulation.

FUNCTIONS
Melatonin is a natural hormone that is synthesized from
the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the back
of the brain. Melatonin also occurs in small amounts in a
variety of foods. In the body, melatonin appears to
regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune
function, and protect cells from free radical damage.
Most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role
in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms. The
perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal
gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release. At night
or in the dark, the body’s melatonin production rises. The
rise in plasma melatonin is thought to be responsible for
bringing on sleep. Nocturnal melatonin production is
highest in children and begins to decline from
adolescence on until it is virtually absent in the elderly.
Melatonin supports normal immune function by helping
maintain the activity of circulating natural killer cells. It
also has been found to function as an antagonist for stressinduced immunosuppression.
Melatonin is considered a potent antioxidant that enters
all body cells to help prevent free radical damage. In the
brain, melatonin is perhaps the most important
physiological antioxidant. Due to its lipid and watersoluble properties, it can freely cross the blood-brain
barrier. In vitro studies show that melatonin is more
effective than glutathione in scavenging toxic hydroxyl
radicals, and also more efficient than vitamin E in
neutralizing peroxyl radicals which can induce DNA
damage. Furthermore, melatonin stimulates the main
antioxidant enzyme in the brain, glutathione peroxidase.
