Source Naturals – Melatonin Complex Sublingual Orange or peppermint Flavored 3 mg. – 100 Tablets
Source Naturals Melatonin Complex is a soothing nighttime formula, which combines the neurohormone melatonin with three key inhibitory neurotransmitters: GABA, glycine, and taurine; and with Coenzymated vitamin B-6, the active form of vitamin B-6. Some nutrients may break down during liver metabolism. The sublingual form is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels under the tongue, and in the cheeks, bypassing the liver and allowing for quick entry into the system.
Lack of rest can take a physical toll on your health and leave you sleepwalking through your day. Statistics show that approximately 20 percent of Americans experience challenges to restful sleep. To address this, Source Naturals offers Melatonin, a safe, natural approach to occasional sleeplessness, available in a variety of convenient forms. Melatonin is a brain hormone that regulates the circadian rhythm and helps to induce and normalize restful sleep. The need for adequate sleep is a biological drive similar to hunger and thirst, which must be met in order for people to function and stay healthy. Without quality sleep, people experience reduced concentration and poor performance. Sleep
is biologically critical because the wear and tear on cells and tissues that occur during a typical day need to be repaired during deep sleep. It is especially important to get plenty of rest when you are sick, so sleep disruptions may also be a factor in immune challenges.
Getting enough sleep, especially deep sleep, is one of the factors vital to your health. The proper amount and type of sleep affect immune function, concentration and vitality. Understanding the stages of sleep is helpful in realizing its importance in your daily life. Sleep is divided into two main stages, with five sub-stages. The two main stages are non-rapid eye movement sleep, which comprises 75-80% of total sleep, and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, or 25% of total sleep. The sub-stages are breakdowns of the two stages. If either stage is interrupted, the structure of sleep is disrupted and occasional sleeplessness can be the result. People deprived of REM sleep have been shown to have problems with memory, learning, muscle tone and mood. Lack of sleep also affects the function of neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that
pass messages between neurons. Brain function can be significantly improved by the right nutrients. Melatonin is an important nutrient that can help you meet your sleep and cognition needs.
