Schiff - Melatonin Plus 3 mg. - 120 Tablets
Schiff - Melatonin Plus has 3 mg of Melatonin with 25 mg of Theanine. Schiff Melatonin Plus has added Theanine, a natural compound found in green tea, for its calming and stress relief properties. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the human brain that sets your body’s biological clock and initiates sleep. Darkness stimulates the pineal gland and causes it to produce more melatonin. Day light stops your body’s production of melatonin. Taking melatonin at bedtime helps to promote healthy sleep patterns. Vitamin B6 plays an important role in brain chemistry and nervous system function. Schiff Melatonin Plus also can help with jet lag. The tablets are easy-to-swallow.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour “clock” that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin; when it is light, the production of melatonin drops. Being exposed to bright lights in the evening or too little light during the day can disrupt the body' s normal melatonin cycles. For example, jet lag, shift work, and poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.
Melatonin also helps control the timing and release of female reproductive hormones. It helps determine when a woman starts to menstruate, the frequency and duration of menstrual cycles, and when a woman stops menstruating (menopause).
Some researchers also believe that melatonin levels may be related to aging. For example, young children have the highest levels of nighttime melatonin. Researchers believe these levels drop as we age. Some people think lower levels of melatonin may explain why some older adults have sleep problems and tend to go to bed and wake up earlier than when they were younger. However, newer research calls this theory into question. Melatonin has strong antioxidant effects. Preliminary evidence suggests that it may help strengthen the immune system.
Theanine is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) found in green tea. People use theanine for treating anxiety and high blood pressure, for preventing Alzheimer’s disease, and for making cancerdrugs more effective.
How does it work?
Theanine has a chemical structure very similar to glutamate, a naturally occurring amino acid in the body that helps transmit nerve impulses in the brain. Some of the effects of theanine appear to be similar to glutamate, and some effects seem to block glutamate.
