Melatonin 3mg by Progressive Labs is a sleep supplement that is meant to potentially help sleep disorders and regulate our body's internal clock (circadian clock).
A melatonin sleep aid works like this:
Melatonin is a hormone that is derived from tryptophan (an amino acid) and serotonin (a neurotransmitter)‚ created in our body's pineal gland located in the brain.
Your body raises melatonin levels as night approaches‚ signaling to your body that it's time to sleep. The lack of light is what signals this effect. Inversely‚ that's why light causes us to stay awake. The presence of light deters the production of melatonin‚ which can inhibit sleep. In case you were wondering‚ this is why some classrooms and workplaces are so brightly lit.
Over time‚ your body becomes accustomed to the sleep cycle of night (sleep) and day (awake). However‚ things like jet lag and low melatonin levels can affect not only affect the type of sleep you experience‚ but even if you sleep at all.
Jet lag occurs when you travel from one time zone to another. Therefore‚ if your body's circadian clock is used to signaling melatonin production at a certain part in your wake cycle‚ by being in a new time zone you're throwing the clock off. In essence‚ it's like setting your watch while you're in one part of the world and then traveling to another. Your watch is still set to the old time zone while your new surroundings are on their own time.
By taking a melatonin sleep aid like Progressive Labs' Melatonin 3mg you are attempting to regulate the levels of melatonin in your body in an attempt at balancing your sleep cycles.
