Source Naturals Melatonin Complex Sublingual Orange Flavored 3 mg 100 TabletsSource Naturals Melatonin Complex is a soothing nighttime formula, which combines the neurohormone melatonin with three key inhibitory neurotransmitters: GABA, glycine, and taurine; and with Coenzymated vitamin B-6, the active form of vitamin B-6. Some nutrients may break down during liver metabolism. The sublingual form is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels under the tongue, and in the cheeks, bypassing the liver and allowing for quick entry into the system.MelatoninLack of rest can take a physical toll on your health and leave you sleepwalking through your day. Statistics show that approximately 20 percent of Americans experience challenges to restful sleep. To address this, Source Naturals offers Melatonin, a safe, natural approach to occasional sleeplessness, available in a variety of convenient forms. Melatonin is a brain hormone that regulates the circadian rhythm and helps to induce and normalize restful sleep. The need for adequate sleep is a biological drive similar to hunger and thirst, which must be met in order for people to function and stay healthy. Without quality sleep, people experience reduced concentration and poor performance. Sleep is biologically critical because the wear and tear on cells and tissues that occur during a typical day need to be repaired during deep sleep. It is especially important to get plenty of rest when you are sick, so sleep disruptions may also be a factor in immune challenges.Deep SleepGetting enough sleep, especially deep sleep, is one of the factors vital to your health. The proper amount and type of sleep affect immune function, concentration and vitality. Understanding the stages of sleep is helpful in realizing its importance in your daily life. Sleep is divided into two main stages, with five sub-stages. The two main stages are non-rapid eye movement sleep, which comprises 75-80% of total sleep, and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, or 25% of total sleep. The sub-stages are breakdowns of the two stages. If either stage is interrupted, the structure of sleep is disrupted and occasional sleeplessness can be the result. People deprived of REM sleep have been shown to have problems with memory, learning, muscle tone and mood. Lack of sleep also affects the function of neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages between neurons. Brain function can be significantly improved by the right nutrients. Melatonin is an important nutrient that can help you meet your sleep and cognition needs. Melatonin and its FunctionsSource Naturals is aware of the importance of proper rest and offers you a variety of Melatonin supplements to address occasional sleeplessness. Melatonin is an important substance for balanced sleep. It is produced in a brain structure called the pineal gland, which is responsible for the circadian rhythms of the body. The eye receives information about the light and darkness of the day and transmits this information to the brain. When the sun sets, or there is less daylight, more melatonin is secreted to biologically prepare the body for sleep. Due to stress and natural aging, the production of melatonin can drop off dramatically. Melatonin supplementation has been found to decrease the time it takes to get to sleep and increase total sleep time. Source Naturals Melatonin Complex supplies the necessary melatonin to assist with occasional sleeplessness. Melatonin can also help fight free radical damage. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules generated in normal bodily processes that can cause cellular and molecular damage. Melatonin has been shown to be an antioxidant that combats free radical damage. It acts as an oxygen free radical scavenger and may prevent some chemical reactions in the body that generate free reactive oxygen species. Restful sleep is critical for concentration,immune function, and overall vitality.

At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned â€“ for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life â€“ simply didnâ€™t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industryâ€™s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.Source Naturalsâ€™ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body.
