Often called “the Master Hormone,” melatonin releases from the pineal gland, reaching its peak at night to help to maintain tissues in a youthful state of health. In low light or darkness, the pineal gland secretes melatonin to promote sleep. Since rest and good sleep are closely related to deferment of aging symptoms, researchers have intensely explored melatonin’s connections with anti-aging. Melatonin has strong antioxidant effects, helping to battle the daily wear- and- tear of free-radicals, thereby slowing cellular aging. It is also a powerful regulator of sex hormones that provide youthfulness and vitality. The “Melatonin Deficiency Syndrome” is perhaps the basic mechanism through which aging changes can be explained. As we age, melatonin levels decline and the night-time melatonin peak is almost completely lost. This loss may be responsible for some of the characteristic signs of aging such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, mid-life weight gain (due to increased secretion of the night-time stress hormone cortisol), and even heart attack. This melatonin formulation is for those who need the fastest possible sleep-inducing action. By dissolving in the mouth, melatonin goes directly to the brain and bypasses the liver, where it runs the risk of being metabolized before it reaches the brain. Melatonin most effectively supports nighttime sleep when taken fifteen minutes before bedtime.
