Melatonin, the primary hormone of the pineal gland, acts as a powerful "chronobiotic," helping to maintain normal circadian rhythms. In individuals having difficulty sleeping or with altered circadian rhythms, such as occur in jet lag and night shift work, supplementation with melatonin can help provide the resynchronization of those cycles, at amounts ranging from 0.3-8.0 mg. Synthesis of melatonin from the amino acid tryptophan can be decreased by the aging process. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant. Adequate melatonin levels have been reported to be a positive factor cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and bone health.

Melatonin administration exerts a sedative-like effect in amounts of 0.3-5.0 mg. When taken before onset of one's own melatonin secretion, even low amounts of melatonin can promote sleep. Melatonin is thought to potentiate the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) via direct interaction with GABA receptors, thus resulting in relaxation. Research indicates melatonin exerts sleep-promoting action by decreasing the time to fall asleep, improving the ability to stay asleep, and enhancing the depth of sleep. Thorne's Melaton-3 supplies 3 mg of melatonin in each capsule. This potency is ideal for those individuals who may require a moderate amount of melatonin.

Take 1 capsules at bedtime or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Great product and helps to put me to sleep

Posted by adaywithe on Jun 25, 2016 | Verified Purchase

It helps me go to sleep. If I'm having difficulty sleeping, this sometimes helps (depends on how active my mind is before sleeping). Otherwise, no complaints from me.

I take one about 20min before bed; it works as well as the expensive melatonin drops my dr had me pay $32 for! I like this price much better. I have insomnia so I really need something that will help me sleep. These do the trick! Thorne Research makes good products and I really enjoy shopping on iherb and getting my order within 2-3 days!

I use this on advice of my doctor. It really helps me fall asleep especially since I've hit the hormonal change cycle.

Vitamins not yet received

Posted by Reviewer1724485 on Jun 18, 2011 | Verified Purchase

This has been about 3-4 weeks since ordering on 23 May (now 18 June) and I am disappointed they have not yet arrived yet to Perth, Australia despite the average time stated on your website as 11 days. If they don't ever arrive I will be very disappointed. Can you please assist? I know I did it by international airmail with no tracking and there is not guarantee, but I would appreciate your help and sending replacement product if this does not arrive. Thank you, John Stanley
