Melatonin 60 Softgels from Dee Cee Laboratories‚ Inc.® might help regulate sleep cycles in adults. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland‚ a small gland in the brain that helps control sleep cycles. Melatonin is also a powerful antioxidant. This means that it could prevent cell damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals.
It is important to obtain quality sleep for good health‚ yet many people find it difficult to sleep throughout the night. Insomnia occurs due to many factors‚ including long work hours‚ travel‚ and stress. Elderly adults may be more affected by the difficulty to sleep and frequent nighttime waking. This is caused by a reduction in the amount of melatonin produced in the body.
Light affects the amount of melatonin produced by the body; during the shorter winter days the body may produce melatonin earlier or later in the day than usual. Every individual has a personalized internal clock‚ which controls his or her natural sleep cycle. Unhealthy food habits‚ stress‚ the modern lifestyle‚ and age are some of the major causes of sleeplessness and this supplement from Dee Cee Laboratories‚ Inc.®‚ might be able to help restore the sleep rhythm.
Melatonin has been reported to reduce oxidative damage caused by aging. It may also act as an anti-aging agent. The antioxidants in melatonin protect both lipids and proteins against damage and could eliminate some of the most dangerous free radicals in the body. Unlike other antioxidants‚ melatonin has the ability to enter into the cells and also cross the blood-brain barrier to protect the brain.
