Melatonin is a hormone (N‑acetyl-5‑methoxytryptamine) produced especially at night in the pineal gland. Its secretion is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light. Melatonin, an indole, is synthesized from tryptophan via serotonin. The suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of the hypothalamus have melatonin receptors and melatonin may have a direct action on SCN to influence circadian (sleep) rhythms. Liquid melatonin 3X SAP is a high quality and high potency melatonin (1.5 mg per spray) and offers the flexibility to dose from 1.5 mg up to 10 mg per day.
Liquid melatonin 3X SAP helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule, e.g. shift work and jet lag. Liquid melatonin 3X SAP helps to prevent and/or reduce the effects of jet lag and helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep in people with delayed sleep phase disorder. Liquid melatonin 3X SAP also helps reset the body’s sleep/wake cycle.

Adults: Spray 1 to 6 times daily under the tongue (to provide 1.5-10 mg of melatonin) or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Sensitivity to melatonin is different from person to person. Take once a day, at or before bedtime. For jet lag: Take once a day at bedtime after darkness has fallen, while travelling and at destination, until adaptation to the new daily pattern on occasional short-term use. For sleep restriction / altered sleep schedule, for delayed sleep phase disorder, and to restore sleep/wake cycle: Consult a healthcare practitioner for use beyond 4 weeks.
