OverviewThis bi-layer 10 mg Melatonin tablet offers dual action to support your sleep. The first layer dissolves quickly providing an immediate dose of melatonin and the second layer is timed released to help ensure a full night’s sleep. Melatonin is a natural substance secreted by the pineal gland in your brain. It is recognized as a key element in regulating your daily metabolic rates and is synchronized with your biological clock. Irregularities in melatonin production can cause sleep problems. When your sleep patterns are disturbed, by travel or shift work for example, supplemental melatonin can help reset your body’s ‘clock’ and improve your length of sleep and sleep quality. Benefits Helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, e.g. shift-work and jet lag. Helps relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency aspect of sleep quality) in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome. Helps re-set the body's sleep-wake cycle (aspect of the circadian rhythm).
