NOW Melatonin is a sleep-aid supplement that helps restore the healthy sleep cycles necessary to combat insomnia and restlessness. Many individuals have sleeping problems for a variety of reasons, but two of the most common causes are hormonal imbalance and off-kilter sleep-wake rhythms. One of the hormones necessary for rest and cycle maintenance is melatonin.
Melatonin tells the body and brain to relax and get ready for a full night’s sleep. It also plays a key role during rest, ensuring you achieve adequate amounts of REM sleep and don’t wake up before you’re ready.
Because melatonin levels decline with age and as we are more active at night, taking a supplement restores the proper amounts, allowing your body to de-stress and sleep properly. NOW Melatonin contains 3 mg of this hormone, an amount shown effective at aiding sleep.
NOW Melatonin restores melatonin levels and immediately provides your body what it needs to get to sleep easily and enjoy a restful night.
