Designed Nutritional Products Melatonin


Melatonin has been used safely for nearly a decade and was first isolated from bovine pineal glands in 1958. Many studies show the relationship of Melatonin to induce sleep in humans as well as other benefits. Oral doses (5 mg) of Melatonin have short half-lives in humans, showing peak plasma levels about 60 minutes after ingestion. Light dependent rhythms are affected in mammals, although the effects differ in species and individuals.
