Melatonin 10 mg B6 Dissolvable
90 small tablets per bottle. A great aspect of this small dosage is that the tablets are dissolvable in your mouth and therefore enter directly into your blood stream much more quickly.
Melatonin is a hormone manufactured from serotonin (our feel good hormone) and secreted by the pineal gland in our brain. The human body is governed by an internal clock that signals the release of many hormones that regulate various body functions. Melatonin is well known for its ability to control our sleep-wake cycles. It is secreted in darkness and suppressed by the light. Melatonin is also used to treat jetlag. Children have much higher melatonin levels than adults and, sadly, as we age these levels dramatically drop. Anti-aging specialists believe melatonin is essential in slowing aging. Low levels of melatonin are also found in those with sleep and depressive disorders.
Melatonin + B6 is a high potency formulation to promote natural sleep. Decreased melatonin production and sleep issues can develop with aging and lifestyle factors (artificial light, shift work, late night/altered sleep schedules, and exposure to electro smog including laptops, television, and computers). Taking melatonin helps regulate sleep-wake cycles, resets circadian rhythms, increases REM and total sleep time, and improve overall sleep quality. When combined with Vitamin B6, melatonin biosynthesis, secretion and absorption is enhanced. Melatonin is used to support difficulty falling asleep (delay sleep phase syndrome), waking in the night, jet lag, increasing total sleep time (shift work, jet lag, late night/ altered sleep schedule). Research shows that melatonin benefits goes beyond improving overall quality of sleep. Known at one of the body’s most efficient free-radical scavengers, melatonin has powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune properties for brain, neurological, heart, and cancer protection. Finlandia’s 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 (mad cow disease).

New research indicates that melatonin does much more than help some people sleep better. Exciting studies show that melatonin’s multifaceted effects may improve treatment outcomes in cancer patients and extend their lives. Additional applications of melatonin include guarding the nervous system against degenerative diseases—such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke—and preventing debilitating migraines.
Melatonin is secreted from the pineal gland deep inside the brain. For more than a quarter-century, scientists have been intrigued by melatonin’s ability to coordinate the body’s physiological rhythms that help set the brain’s biological clock.
The principal factor affecting melatonin is light, which inhibits the secretion of this hormone. Darkness has the opposite effect from light, resulting in signalling to the pineal gland to increase melatonin secretion. The normal cycles of melatonin production are altered due to factors including aging, medications, and light exposure at night. While the long-term health effects of disrupted melatonin secretion are not yet fully known, some scientists have suggested that years of working nights could lead to adverse effects—even cancer. Fortunately, melatonin supplements can safely and effectively restore balance to the body’s circadian rhythm of this important hormone—helping achieve a restful night’s sleep and keeping your biological clock ticking throughout a long, healthy life span.
Melatonin is a powerful and versatile antioxidant produced within the body. Melatonin protects both lipids and proteins against damage, and can scavenge some of the most dangerous free radicals in the body—including hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide. Unlike other antioxidants, melatonin easily diffuses into all cells, and even crosses the blood-brain barrier to protect the delicate brain.
Unfortunately, levels of naturally produced melatonin decline with advancing age, leaving older adults with limited antioxidant protection against conditions associated with oxidative stress, particularly neurodegenerative diseases. Supplementing with melatonin may thus help older adults enhance their antioxidant protection against some of the most ravaging diseases of aging, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke.
