‘READY TO GO’ SLEEP HORMONE SUPPLEMENT
Let's face it; we humans rarely abide by the Earth's natural day/night sleep cycles. Electricity has created artificial light (not to mention television!) to allow all manners of work and play to exist deep into the dead of night, and most sleeping quarters provide blinds or curtains to block out the arousing rays of the morning sun. The result is that some of the mechanisms that have evolved inside us to assist with the sleep process have been thrown askew. One of these mechanisms involves the hormone melatonin. In a normal, pre-electricity scenario the pineal gland would release melatonin at the onset of darkness to help induce a desire to sleep. However, artificial light, especially high-frequency blue light from visual electronics has been known to shift the release of melatonin, which can perturb sleeping patterns.
Ingesting supplemental melatonin in our ‘ready to go’ spray can help the body signify to you when it is time for your body to sleep. In assisting the body's natural desire to rest, the melatonin can help the body to enjoy a more restful sleep experience. By placing the melatonin in a spray format, with two delicious breath-freshening flavors, you have a fast and simple delivery system for this vital sleep hormone.*
Whether your sport presents long travel days with irregular rest, inconsistent sleeping environments, early-morning or late-night training, or other stress-related external factors, Klean Melatonin is here to help. All of these factors can affect the body’s production of melatonin, which may impact the onset and quality of sleep. Research indicates that supplemental melatonin can decrease the time needed to fall asleep and support overall sleep quality. Klean Melatonin is 3 mg of pure melatonin in a great-tasting, natural raspberry lemonade-flavored liquid spray, to support the body’s sleep-wake cycle in a quick-delivery, travel-ready form. Your active lifestyle demands your best each and every day. Rest and recover with Klean Melatonin today. *
FUNCTIONS AND MECHANISMS OF ACTION
Supplemental melatonin augments the normal functioning of the pineal gland, supporting the body’s natural sleep cycle. External factors such as travel, shift work and stress affect the body’s production of melatonin, which may impact the onset of sleep and the quality. Research indicates that supplemental melatonin can decrease the time needed to fall asleep, help to reach a deeper sleep state, and improve the ability to stay asleep. In one study, melatonin supported sleep onset when taken in the evening, and did not cause morning drowsiness. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel design study suggested that melatonin supplementation lowers sleep onset latency and increases total sleep time in subjects.*
The phase-shifting effect of melatonin can be beneficial to those experiencing circadian rhythm disturbances. Sleep phase delay or phase advancement is associated with a “free-running” circadian rhythm of more than 24 hours and results in sleep alterations. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving workers with circadian rhythm alterations after transmeridian flights showed melatonin supported their ability to resynchronize the natural circadian body rhythms with the environmental light-dark cycle.*
Preliminary research shows that melatonin supplementation before strenuous exercise may modulate oxidative stress-signaling associated with acute stress-induced sports performance. *
