Studies show that many adults do not get the sleep that they need each night. Insomnia has gone from medical terminology to a commonly recognized layman’s word. So many people have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep each night that we are constantly being bombarded by commercials and advertisements for prescription and over-the-counter sleeping pills. These sleep aid drugs can have several unwanted or dangerous side effects. Additionally, they can become addictive, you can build a tolerance to them, and they can actually cause your insomnia to become worse. People generally report needing to take more and more sleep aid drugs over time. We have seen a drastic increase in the number of people taking sleep drugs. People are having dangerous, disturbing and life-threatening side effects from drugs that we all thought were perfectly safe just a year ago. They build up a tolerance, become dependent, have withdrawal if they try to stop, and are looking for answers. They want to educate themselves on time-tested, natural sleep aids so that they can safely get the sleep that they need.
The most recognized, natural sleep remedy is melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone naturally made by your body. It has been tested time and time again showing no serious side effects for short-term use (up to three months). Negative long-term side effects have not been reported, but have not been tested much.
The synthesis and release of melatonin are stimulated by darkness. Our eyes have specialized light-sensitive receptors that we use to determine how light or dark our surroundings are. These receptors then signal a cluster of nerves in the brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN. The SCN sets our circadian rhythm, otherwise known as our biological clock, which regulates many body functions, including sleep. When the eyes tell the brain that day has turned into night, your pineal gland takes your serotonin and turns it into melatonin. This helps you to become more relaxed and helps to regulate your sleep cycle.
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a natural hormone produced in the pineal gland, which is located in the center of the brain. Its secretion is inhibited by light and stimulated by darkness. Therefore, it has been shown that it peaks at night. Research now shows us that the body’s natural production of melatonin decreases with age. Over the years melatonin has received ample amounts of publicity for its ability to promote natural sleep patterns, decrease jet lag, boost the immune system, and its potent antioxidant abilities. Melatonin has long been recognized as the miracle hormone. Over 5,000 plus research papers have been published showing the benefits of melatonin, most of which noticeable within days of beginning use. Melatonin is thought to be a basic, bio-regulator in that it coordinates all the body’s complex systems.
The relationship of melatonin and disease is quite unique: the lower the melatonin levels, the higher chance of disease.* Some researchers now believe that the steady depletion of melatonin is a leading cause of aging and chronic diseases such as stroke, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease.* Many researchers have found that aging is a pathological process originating from the gradual decrease of melatonin from the pineal gland. Many believe that the pineal gland is much like our “biological clock”, and is synchronized with the light-dark cycle. The pineal gland produces many neurohormones in small concentrations, primarily melatonin and serotonin. Melatonin is often times deficient in those exposed to harmful EMF’s (Electromagnetic Frequencies) on a regular basis, such as computers, cars, cell phones, and televisions.* A Potent Antioxidant Melatonin is thought of as one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, offering protection against hydroxyl free radicals (cause cellular damage). This evidence may show that melatonin could aid in the promotion of protection against many harmful diseases.* Research now shows us that melatonin is 5.9 times more effective then glutathione and 11.3 times more effective then mannitol in the protection against free radicals. Another study also showed melatonin to be twice as good a scavenger of the peroxyl radical then vitamin E.
What Do I suggest? “Bio Melatonin”
All melatonin is not the same! How many times have we heard about an amazing nutrient, purchased it from the local health food store, but after taking it for a few weeks could not notice a difference? This cycle will be repeated over and over again in the years to come, since research shows us that 80% of health food store supplements do NOT meet label claims. This means that what the label says is not what is in the product. Melatonin is no different.
Many of the researchers who demonstrated the amazing benefits of melatonin were supplied a high grade, non-toxic version made in a top notch laboratory in Europe. Sadly, melatonin made in the United States can be classified as “junk” according to the European chemist of this laboratory. He tested several companies and stated that US made melatonin shows characteristic peaks on HPLC graphs which reflect the impurities from toxic solvents and chemicals that are used in the making of the melatonin. This is no surprise considering how cheap solvents are to use!
If you are using one of these solvent-tainted melatonins, not only will they not experience the benefits it has to offer, but it can also be harmful. If your melatonin contains these solvents, then it can cause negative reactions, such as nausea, anxiety, shakiness, insomnia, liver toxicity, kidney damage, and so on. It is sad to see so many people use melatonin for a short period of time, and then discontinue use after experiencing these side effects.
We know that this extremely pure source of melatonin we use is much more expensive, but it truly works! There have been many other sources tested that were also found to be contaminated with solvent residues outside of the US as well. We ensure that we are using one of the only “natural sourced” melatonin that is identical to the source your brain produces. We have used our proprietary blossom technique to break down the particles into the tiniest particles making it extremely bio-available to every cell within your body. Not only this, but it is almost “pre-digested” in that it contains physical nutrients in the tiniest particles while providing an abundance of information to the cells within your body through the use of sound and induction lasers and our exclusive “BioCore” technology.
Ensure that you are using only a natural-source, solvent-free melatonin! Do not take chances with you, your family, or your patients health; avoid solvent based melatonin. These residues are cumulative in the body and associated with increased risks of many degenerative diseases.* Order Bio Melatonin through our onsite e-store or direct through Amazon by clicking the image above. Rest assured that you will finally get the sleep your body needs!
