Melatonin facilitates sleep by acting as a natural sedative and regulating the normal sleep-wake cycle. As daylight fades, melatonin levels in the blood increase, telling the body to rest. Insomnia is a condition where the body's natural sleep-wake cycle becomes dysfunctional, causing feelings of wakefulness that prevent us from falling asleep. Other sleep disorders can cause us to wake throughout the night, leading to fatigue, poor concentration and memory, irritability, and a lack of alertness that can be both unproductive and dangerous.
Persistent sleep problems adversely affect the whole body as restorative sleep is necessary for healing and growth. Insomnia and sleeping problems may arise due to changes in routine and diet, aging, disease, and generalized or specific anxiety. Shift workers, those crossing time zones, those with problems of melatonin synthesis, and those who are housebound and exposed to little natural light may experience more frequent and more severe bouts of insomnia.
This dual-action timed release supplement quickly releases 5 mg of melatonin to help people fall asleep more easily and then steadily releases another 5 mg melatonin to improve the length and quality of sleep and reduce wakefulness. Dual action supplemental melatonin can help reset the body's sleep-wake cycle by reducing the time it takes to fall asleep and helping to promote longer sleep duration and better quality sleep, thereby aiding general well-being and energy.
