HOW IT WORKS
Melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland, controls sleep patterns and influences the body's biological clock, affecting the aging process. Melatonin levels drop as we age, which may explain why sleep patterns change. Melatonin Extra provides 3mg of pure melatonin combined with herbs and natural vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, for optimal benefits.
WHY MELATONIN EXTRA?
Our non-GMO blend of melatonin, vitamin E and sustainably-sourced supporting herbs features a highly concentrated Chinese ginkgo leaf extract from vegan, non-GMO, Kosher and Halal-certified ginkgo leaves. It’s standardized to 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides. Because you might as well nourish your nervous system while you catch up on your sleep.
THE STORY BEHIND MELATONIN EXTRA® (3MG)
American physician Aaron Lerner first discovered melatonin in 1958 when he and colleagues at Yale University were studying brain health. They gave it the name melatonin because it could lighten the color of frog skin. Vitamin E was discovered in 1922 by Herbert Evans and Katharine Bishop. Twenty or so years later, researchers found that this nutrient has the ability to protect against oxidation. Eleuthero root (AKA devil’s shrub, wild pepper and Russian root) is native to southeastern Russia and northern China. It has been used traditionally for 2,000 years. The ginkgo tree is one of the oldest in the world! And ginkgo leaf has been a big part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Today, this unique, fan-shaped leaf is used to protect against oxidative stress, and to support the cardiovascular system and the brain.
