Melatonin – Powder, 10g
Melatonin is a neurohormone produced in the pineal gland that may improve the quality of one’s sleep and reduce restlessness before bedtime.
Melatonin is synthesized from tryptophan in the brain and in addition to its potential sleep related benefits, the compound plays a role in the regulation of seasonal reproduction, energy metabolism and thermoregulation. This hormone has been known to possess anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic properties, while also acting as a high-capacity antioxidant within mitochondria. Continued research is being done to further understand the scope of melatonin’s proposed effects.
