Melatonin is a hormone produced in the Pineal gland, which forms serotonin, the precursor of melatonin which, in turn, is the precursor of tryptophan. It governs our sleep cycles and regulates body rhythms to promote normal sleep. Excess blood levels of melatonin lead to a decrease in thyroid hormone levels. It is a neuroendocrine transducer that responds to light stimulation. Individuals with high levels of melatonin usually sleep longer and more soundly than those with lower levels. As age develops, less melatonin is produced by the body so sleep is usually shallower and of shorter duration.
One to ten drops three times daily under the tongue as directed by a health care practitioner. Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.
