Melatonin is naturally secreted from the pineal gland at night, and should be taken at night for optimal results.
Melatonin releases from the pineal gland, reaching its peak at night to help maintain healthy cell health throughout the body. Secretion of melatonin declines significantly with age, as the pineal gland becomes calcified. Jet lag, shift work, and poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.
Melatonin keeps our circadian cycle in tune. Not only does this hormone work to maintain cell health, it appears to regulate a system of self-repair and regeneration. As melatonin diminishes with age, our biological functions are impaired. Melatonin also has strong antioxidant properties. It directly scavenges both hydroxyl and peroxyl free radicals, and it does so more effectively than most other antioxidants. It also greatly potentiates the efficiency of other endogenous and exogenous antioxidants. Melatonin is especially important for protecting cellular DNA against peroxynitrite damage by inhibiting peroxynitrite free radical reactions. Some research has found that melatonin increases the speed of falling asleep and adds to the quality of sleep in about 60% of people who use it.

If you have long term sleeping problems as I do, and need a high quality high dosage product, this is the one. Absolutely the best on the market.
Excellent product for a fantastic price. I've been using Prescription Compounding Melatonin which is extremely expensive, and found Life Extension's Melatonin just as effective. Thank goodness I found iHerbs.com.

I like L.E.F supplements, they are free of any additives like mag. Stearate, etc. Its a small capsule and greatly effective.
Not as expected

The effect wears off quite quickly, if you read before you fall asleep for instance. Then it´s over. I will not buy this product again.

Melatonin is a good product to use if you have difficulties sleeping. It will help you get a peaceful nights rest without making you feel groggy in the morning. It helps put you in " sleep mode" so you can have sweet dreams all night long. If you found this review to be helpful please click the yes button. Free shipping on orders over 40.00

Stress has made me sleepless for years. When I stopped taking prescription drugs, I tried everything. This is what works for me, night after night. I trust LifeExtension, and you can't get a better deal than iherb. zzzzzzzzzzz...
