Dr. Michael Murray's Body Balance Performance Check
Sleep Check Home Melatonin Analysis (Saliva Collection) by Body Balance
was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Great Smokies Diagnostics Laboratory, Inc. SleepCheck by BodyBalance measures the level of melatonin in your system. Although it plays a role in many other areas of your body, such as cardiovascular function, female reproductive hormones, and as an antioxidant, melatonin's primary contribution is to your body's ability for quality sleep and the regulation of your circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythm is the 24-hour cycle of sleeping and waking our body experiences based on the patterns of light and dark. Normal melatonin levels are highest during the night, when you're sleeping, because there is less light. Exposure to light decreases melatonin secretion, explaining why you are not as sleepy during the day as you are at night. Without proper melatonin secretion, your circadian rhythm is off-balance, affecting your night's sleep. Since the rise and fall of melatonin regulates your sleep patterns, having proper melatonin levels supports the body's natural ability to induce and sustain a healthy sleep cycle. SleepChecl measures your melatonin levels, helping you get back in rhythm and back to sleep, naturally. Did You Know...
Low levels of melatonin have been linked to insomnia, depression and cardovascular disease. Higher melatonin levels in the winder months are associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Melatonin levels are at their highest in your youth. When you reach adulthood, our levels often decrease dramatically.SleepCheck Kit Contents
