    Product Description

    Studies have compared melatonin to several pharmaceuticals for its ability to induce sleep and the effect on psychomotor performance. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the sleep-inducing potential of melatonin (6 mg single dose) was found to be as effective as some medications. The researchers (using the same patient group and melatonin dosage) also demonstrated that, despite a surprisingly prolonged period of perceived sleepiness (up to 4.75 hours), melatonin was superior to these medications in lack of impact on performance of four separate tasks: serial reaction time, logical reasoning, serial subtraction task, and a multi-task test battery. Studies on endogenous melatonin secretion demonstrate decreased nocturnal melatonin secretion and lower melatonin levels during a migraine. Studies utilizing 3-5 mg oral melatonin for up to one month, reported decreases in headache frequency, intensity, and duration. Thorne’s Melaton-3 supplies 3 mg of melatonin per capsule for individuals requiring a higher dose of melatonin.
