Melatonin Sublingual, when Sleeping Well is Just the Beginning!
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain that helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body’s natural sleeping cycles. This safe, non habit-forming alternative to sleeping pills is helping millions of insomniacs. Taken at bedtime, it promotes a night of deeper and longer sleep. Recent research studies have also found melatonin helps lower blood pressure, reduce menopausal discomfort, prevent breast and prostate cancers, improve the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. It also exerts strong antioxidant effects and boosts immunity. Sublingual forms provide superior absorption.
Melatonin plays a critical role in regulating the body’s biological clock and the research on its immune support is very convincing, especially in the elderly. Aging is associated with a decline in immune function, a situation known to correlate with increased incidence of cancer, along with infectious and degenerative diseases. “Melatonin has the potential therapeutic value to enhance immune function in aged individuals and in patients in an immuno-compromised state.”(*)
