    Doctor's Best Quick Melt Melatonin 2.5 mg. - 120 Chewable Tablets

    Quick Melt Melatonin may be used to promote youthful, restful sleep and to enhance healthy, quality sleep throughout the night. Melatonin is a naturally occurring antioxidant that is produced by the body to regulate healthy sleep cycles. Supplemental melatonin helps the body relax by supporting against occasional sleeplessness. Quick Melt Melatonin enables you to enjoy the benefits of melatonin in a fast-acting and pleasant-tasting form.

    • Science-based nutrition
    • Promotes healthy sleep cycles
    • Enhances sleep quality

    The rhythm of melatonin secretion is regulated by the body’s master internal clock, or “biological clock,” a group of nerve cells in the brain’s hypothalamus known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Melatonin type 2 receptors of the SCN receive information from the eyes about the amount of light present in the environment. With darkness, more melatonin is released; 80% of melatonin production occurs at night.

    While melatonin is involved in the regulation of several areas of health, including cardiovascular, reproductive, and endocrine functions, its most prominent role is its ability to modulate sleep. With each year bringing more research on this hormone, including accumulating evidence on the effects of its antioxidant activity, melatonin may soon be commonly known for more than synchronizing sleep with circadian rhythms.

    May be used on occasion to fall asleep faster
    With age, we naturally begin to decrease melatonin synthesis, which can occasionally affect maintenance of healthy sleep patterns. Our melatonin levels begin to drop at around age 35-40, gradually declining such that by the time we are in our 70’s, our nighttime melatonin levels are often similar to daytime levels. Quick Melt Melatonin provides an exogenous (external) source of melatonin to support the maintenance of sleep patterns that are in sync with both the demands of our daily schedules and the circadian rhythms largely dictated by our biological clock.

    Because melatonin is naturally produced in response to darkness, individuals confronted with altered sleeping patterns due to shift-work (or other responsibilities that require them to sleep during the day) occasionally have trouble maintaining healthy sleep patterns during daylight hours. Research has shown that melatonin can be an integral part of efforts to enhance quicker adjustment to new sleep schedules—and the maintenance of them—over time. In a clinical study investigating the sleep patterns of 86 shift-work nurses, the subjects were given either melatonin or placebo 30 minutes prior to their intended sleep. The results indicated that participants in the melatonin study group fell asleep an average of 16 minutes sooner. This group also displayed significantly increased sleep quality scores as measured by questionnaires completed immediately upon waking.

    As our melatonin supply naturally decreases, the brain’s sensory mechanisms can sometimes prematurely wake the body. Data from clinical studies suggests that occasional supplementation with melatonin may lengthen the period of time spent sleeping by avoiding the scenario of the brain misinterpreting low melatonin levels as a sign to wake up. A meta-analysis reviewing studies on certain segments of the population noted that melatonin increased the average time that some research subjects spent sleeping by 50 minutes. Additionally, this analysis found that melatonin significantly decreased the number of times subjects awoke during the night and, furthermore, that subjects feel asleep an average of 34 minutes sooner.

    It should be noted that these types of effects are dependent on several variables, including age, the genetic makeup of individuals, and environmental factors. Nonetheless, melatonin supplementation may be on occasion useful to enhance subjective and/or objective sleep parameters for some individuals with the intent of enhancing the overall effectiveness of sleep to refresh the body.

    Enhanced recovery from jet lag
    Jet lag occurs when the body’s biological clock remains adjusted to the point of departure after extended travel across three or more time zones. As a result, circadian rhythms may be inappropriately phased (not matching the light/dark environment) during the first few days at the destination. Because the biological clock is highly regulated, travelers may have difficulty quickly adjusting to new sleep schedules. Travelers may temporarily experience decreased concentration and motivation in association with increased fatigue and irritability. Research using these types of subjective measurements of jet lag—like impaired concentration and decreased alertness—suggests that melatonin may be effective in helping to shift the biological clock’s adjustment to new time zones after arrival. Findings further suggest that melatonin supplementation is not associated with daytime fatigue when taken at night.

    Supports cognitive function and brain health
    Melatonin is both a hormone with several important physiological implications and an antioxidant with properties known to exert beneficial effects on the brain. As a hormone, melatonin regulates sleep, a necessary physiological process required for the body and the brain to function normally. Normal melatonin levels are associated with healthy neuron structure, as well as the maintenance of normal cognitive function in the elderly. The hormone’s antioxidant characteristics inhibit the accumulation of free radicals in the brain, promoting integrity of the neurons. In nervous system cells that produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh), production is dependent upon the enzyme choline acetyltransferase (ChAT). After synthesis, ACh is transported into synaptic vesicles to contribute to normal cognitive function. Research has shown that melatonin may partially prevent the inhibition of both choline transport and ChAT activity that sometime occurs, thereby supporting healthy brain function.
