Pure Encapsulations Melatonin 0.5mg offers support for sleep. Melatonin and sleep go hand-in-hand. This hormonewhich is produced in the pineal gland of the brain by converting tryptophan, an amino acid commonly found in turkeyworks to regulate your body's sleep-wake cycles, telling you when it's nighttime. It also promotes better sleep quality, so you don't feel groggy and sluggish in the morning. During deep sleep, your body works to restore and repair its cells by fighting off free radicals. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep at night, it can negatively impact your daily life. When you're tired, your cognitive functioning may be impaired, causing you to make mistakes at work or school. In addition, you may be too fatigued to exercise, thereby robbing yourself of the health benefits of physical activity. Your melatonin levels may be affected if you're a night shift worker, or by exposure to electronic lights. Melatonin 3 mg by PureFormulas provides a bioavailable form of the hormone similar to the type produced by your brain, if your pineal gland fails to produce sufficient amounts of it. While melatonin supplements don't actually cause you to fall asleep, they may help you adjust your sleep schedule. Recommended use: 1 capsules daily, 1/2 to 1 hour before bedtime, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
