Melatonin P.R.tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 3 mg of purest pharmaceutical grade melatonin, in a prolonged-release, bisected tablet.
Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the back of the brain. Melatonin also occurs in small amounts in a variety of foods. In the body, melatonin appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical damage.
Most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms. The perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release. At night or in the dark, the body’s melatonin production rises. The rise in plasma melatonin is thought to be responsible for bringing on sleep. Nocturnal melatonin production is highest in children and begins to decline from adolescence on until it is virtually absent in the elderly.

I have suffered with difficulties sleeping for years, and my doctor recently recommended Douglas Labs Melatonin P.R. 3 mg to help. I did not expect this to work, as nothing ever has, but I have never slept like this in my adult life. I go to sleep easily, but even more unusual, I stay asleep all night. This is a fantastic product that works.
