Mela-What? NuMedica Melatonin!
Melatonin is a naturally produced hormone in the human brain. Everyone produces melatonin, even if you've never heard of it. It's the hormone that tells your brain, "It's nighttime: time to go to sleep and stay asleep." Practically speaking, it's the hormone that tells your body it's time to rest and repair.
The liquid form is believed by some metabolic experts to be the fastest and best absorbing form of melatonin. The lozenge is a standard that has been used for many years, and is a non-messy, easy travel form of melatonin
NuMedica Melatonin is a natural, non-habit forming sleep aid that can help you fall asleep. It comes in two forms: lozenge and liquid. NuMedica Liquid Melatonin is regarded by many metabolic experts as superior even to the lozenges for two reasons. First, it is more easily absorbed by the body than a tablet. Second, the dosage can be adjusted every night based on individual needs.
Modern Marvels Cause Major Problems with Getting Proper Sleep
Our culture has moved way beyond sleeping when it's dark, and being awake when it's light. Our ancestors relied on the sun to tell them when to wake and sleep, then came candles and clocks, allowing us to manipulate our resting patterns. Still, in that time, people rested well, and generally, melatonin worked properly in the brain.
As we have progressed through the technological advances of: light bulbs, alarm clocks, color television, DVR's, shift work, 24 hour grocery stores, etc... our bodies still work with the same tools our predecessors did. Now we have smart phones, laptops, tablet computers, and our bodies are seriously lacking in ways to process all of the light coming into our eyes.
What's The Big Deal About Light At Night?
Our bodies know how to process the light that occurs in nature. During the day, it's bright and sunny- our brain knows this is the time to be most alert, most active. If you live in a place like Michigan, the days are very short when it's cold, and it's still light at 9:30 at night when it's time to plant and harvest crops.
Modern technology has given new meaning to "daylight". We run factories, restaurants, and supermarkets 24 hours a day. Instead of spending our evenings winding down in waining light of sunset, we watch TV, go see a movie, read on a Kindle, or video chat. These modern marvels are wonderful, but unfortunately, our brains don't know how to handle the light that comes from these devices.
Blue Lights And Melatonin
Because most people spend evenings in "screen time" mode, our brains no longer produce melatonin. These screen devices (think TV, computer screen, movies, smartphones, tablets, etc..) produce a blue light. This frequency of light tells the brain, "It's day time. Stay alert- stay active. Do not prepare to sleep!" It tells your brain not to produce a hormone called: Melatonin. This can mean serious trouble for falling and staying asleep. If your body does not produce enough melatonin you cannot have restorative, restful sleep. The brain does not produce melatonin at all or in large enough quantities when we have screen time before trying to sleep. Melatonin supplements can give your body the cue it's not receiving when it takes in these lights. These supplements can be taken as needed and in liquid form, the dosage can be easily adjusted. Melatonin is natural and non-habit forming. It's a great tool to use for those sleepless nights!
So What Is Melatonin- Scientifically?
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland of mammals and reaches peak levels at night. Studies show that it may be associated with the regulation of the sleep/wake cycles. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant that defends against free radicals and helps to support glutathione activity in the neural tissue.
