HEALTH SOLUTIONS: RECOMMENDED USE: Helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule (e.g. shift work and jet lag). Helps relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep onset latency aspect of sleep quality) in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome. Helps reset the body's sleep-wake cycle (aspect of the circadian rhythm). DOSAGE FORM: Tablet RECOMMENDATIONS: Take 1 to 5 tablets one time per day, at or before bedtime. For use beyond four weeks, consult a health care practitioner. DESCRIPTION: In the natural sleep-wake cycle, darkness triggers the release of melatonin. It is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain. Once released into the bloodstream, melatonin prepares the body for sleep, decreasing temperature, alertness and performance. Melatonin supplements interact with melatonin receptors in the brain in the same way to induce sleep and help regulate the body’s normal sleep patterns. Recommended Daily Allowance: N/A Food Sources:None Causes of Defi ciency: Poor diet, depression or anxiety, stress, prescription medications, shift work. Symptoms of Defi ciency: Sleeping problems, insomnia. Complementary Nutrients: Chamomile tea. HOW IT WORKS: When taken 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime, melatonin interacts with melatonin receptors in the brain to activate the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin also helps maintain youthful, healthy tissues by supporting the body’s regeneration process. RESEARCH: Several studies have shown an association between decreased melatonin levels and increased risk of insomnia. Melatonin increases the speed of falling asleep and improves the overall quality of sleep. Studies also show that supplementing with melatonin before and after travel can reduce the effects of jet lag. Most importantly, melatonin is a sleep aid without any hangover-like effects. INTERACTIONS AND SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS: Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have a hormonal disorder, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, migraine, depression and/or hypertension or if you are taking blood pressure or sedative/hypnotic medications. If symptoms persist continuously for more than four weeks (chronic insomnia), consult your health care practitioner. Do not use if you are taking immunosuppressive drugs. Do not drive or use machinery for five hours after taking melatonin. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: Nature’s Harmony® Timed Release Melatonin is a synthetically sourced melatonin product. It is NOT sourced from the pineal gland of beef cattle and, therefore, contains absolutely no risk of BSE (m
