What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a natural substance secreted by the pineal gland. Melatonin is recognized as a key element in regulating the body's day/night metabolic rates. Its secretion is synchronized with our biological clock which dictates the daily changes upon the body's metabolic activity: our circadian rhythms. Its most popular use is to help alleviate jet lag: "Melatonin can alleviate jet lag and tiredness after long haul flights (1)".

Melatonin as an Antioxidant
Melatonin is also an excellent antioxidant: a potent‚ free-radical scavenger. It also reduces blood platelet aggregation and thus provides an aspirin type of protective effect on the coronaries‚ improving blood pressure and reducing the negative effects of hypertension. Another crucial role of Melatonin is in its maintenance of the immune system. It may have potential benefit for Alzheimer's disease as well.

Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for Melatonin 5 mg Sublingual - 30 Tablets
from Southern California
My doctor suggested Melatonin 5 mg Sublingual since I had difficulty falling and staying asleep. The key is to make sure you are consistent with taking it. I take it 30-60 minutes before going to bed and its important to leave it under your tongue until it totally dissolves so it works. At first I did not think Melatonin 5 mg Sublingual was working but by the fifth day I started to receive its benefits. As a suggestion make sure all electronic devices...televisions computers cell phones etc. are off at least one hour before bedtime to assist with falling asleep.
It works with consistent usage.
The price is reasonable for a 30-day supply.
Small tablet size with no bad taste
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
Intensive Nutrition is a good brand. I like this dose of Melatonin which is harder to find.
