- Melatonin + Vitamin B6 Capsules
- B6 Added to Counteract Depleted Levels
- Useful When Crossing Time Zone
Melatonin is a hormone created by the pineal gland that controls sleep and wake / biorhythm patterns. Biorhythm is disturbed by stress, crossing time zones and changing work shifts.* Melatonin production also declines with age.* Vitamin B6 aids melatonin metabolism.*
Your body has its own internal clock that controls your natural cycle of sleeping and waking hours. In part, your body clock controls how much melatonin your body makes. Normally, melatonin levels begin to rise in the mid- to late evening, remain high for most of the night, and then drop in the early morning hours.
Light affects how much melatonin your body produces. During the shorter days of the winter months, your body may produce melatonin either earlier or later in the day than usual. This change can lead to symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), or winter depression.
Natural melatonin levels slowly drop with age. Some older adults make very small amounts of it or none at all.
Melatonin supplements are sometimes used to treat jet lag or sleep problems (insomnia). Oher good uses for melatonin are:
Treating seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Helping to control sleep patterns for people who work night shifts.
Preventing or reducing problems with sleeping and confusion after surgery.
Reducing chronic cluster headaches.
Take 1 capsule 20 to 30 minutes prior to bedtime or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
