Details

Melatonin is a hormone produced in the pineal gland during periods of darkness. It produces the feeling of sleepiness and it often used as a sleep aid.

Melatonin is a hormone derived from serotonin and produced in the pineal gland (a small, pea-sized gland located just behind the center of your forehead) during periods of darkness, but not light. It produces the feeling of sleepiness that sets upon us when night falls. Exposure to light results in a rapid breakdown of melatonin.

Health Benefits Of Melatonin

Certain functions in the body “synchronize” and when working properly, and function as a clock – your “internal body clock.” Melatonin can assist with this process as well as “resetting” your body’s sleep cycles. It may help:

•Correct disturbances in the circadian periodicity of the body, often associated with air travel ("jet lag")

•Reduce the number of wakenings throughout the night

•Reduce the latency period of the onset of sleepiness

•Melatonin can help both normal subjects and those afflicted with various sleep pathologies

Why our Melatonin Supplements are a Good Choice

We offer the chewable tablet form of Melatonin. By chewing and dissolving Melatonin in your mouth, it may be absorbed directly into your bloodstream through the blood vessels in the tongue and cheeks. This gives a more consistent intake -- it is not affected by digestive enzymes, the food in your stomach, or how long it has been since your last meal. Each time you take it, you will receive consistent results. It has a very mild, pleasant flavor.
Buy your Melatonin supplements from Whole Health and take advantage of better absorption and consistent intake for more consistent results.

Melatonin: Main Image

Melatonin is a natural hormone that regulates the human biological clock.

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
