Melatonin helps to reset the body's circadian rhythm (the biological clock) and increase the sleep quality in people with sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule.
Safe and effective dose for individuals suffering from delayed sleep phase syndrome, jet lag and shift work.
May increase the dose to 6-9 mg to help alleviate sleep disturbance.
Clinical research has demonstrated that melatonin may help reduce peri-menopausal symptoms via its modulating action on the HPO-axis (hypothalamus, pituitary gland, ovarian axis- a hormonal control of the menstrual cycle and feedback mechanism).
