Do the dreary, dark days of winter make you depressed? Or do you get the blues for no apparent reason? When you travel from one time zone to another, does your body’s “clock” have a hard time resetting because of the time difference? This condition is known as jet lag.
Sometimes, for one reason or another, the body does not produce adequate amounts of melatonin for its needs. This can result in insomnia and depression, among other symptoms. The body’s ability to synthesize melatonin may decrease with age. Melatonin, from Unicity, is the easy way to complement the body’s production of this important hormone.
Melatonin is a natural hormone made by your body’s pineal gland. The pineal gland lies at the base of the brain. And when the sun goes down, and darkness comes, the pineal gland “goes to work.” As melatonin production rises, you begin to feel less alert. Body temperature starts to fall as well. Sleep seems more inviting. Then melatonin levels drop quickly with the dawning of a new day. Levels are so low during the day that scientists often have difficulty detecting melatonin then.
Melatonin levels go hand in hand with the light-dark cycle, not just for people, but for plants and animals that keep alert during the day. Melatonin production is also related to age. Children manufacture more melatonin than the elderly do. But melatonin production begins to drop at puberty.
Tryptophan, an amino acid found in food, is taken in by the body and made into serotonin, a neurotransmitter (conductor of nerve signals). The pineal gland takes the serotonin and makes it into melatonin, but only during the night. (The enzymes in the brain that change serotonin into melatonin are inactivated by light.)
Norepinephrine is another neurotransmitter that assists in melatonin production. It acts as a catalyst to melatonin production by stimulating cells in the pineal gland to begin making melatonin in the absence of light.
The number one reason people use melatonin is to promote natural sleep. It may also help remedy jet lag. Unicity International is proud to offer this remarkable and effective product. It comes in a small, convenient tablet that dissolves easily under the tongue for fastest and maximum absorption.
