To enhance sleep and help maintain normal circadian rhythms*
Thorne's Melaton-3 is NSF Certified for Sport®. Thorne offers melatonin in both 3 mg (Melatonin-3) and 5 mg
(Melatonin-5) capsules. Melatonin, the primary hormone of the pineal gland, is a powerful "chronobiotic" that helps
maintain the body's normal circadian rhythms.* In individuals who have difficulty sleeping or who have altered
circadian rhythms because of jet lag or night shift work, melatonin supplementation promotes the resynchronization
of this cycle.* Supplementation can also benefit those whose difficulty sleeping is caused by the aging-related
decrease in the body's ability to synthesize melatonin from the amino acid tryptophan.* Research indicates melatonin
exerts its sleep-promoting efficacy by decreasing the amount of time needed to fall asleep, by promoting the ability
to stay asleep, and by enhancing the depth of sleep.*
Melatonin administration from 0.3 mg to 5.0 mg has been shown to exert a sedative-like effect.* When supplemented
prior to the onset of the body's normal melatonin secretion, even a low amount of melatonin can promote sleep.*
Melatonin apparently enhances the effect of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) via direct interaction with GABA
receptors, thus resulting in relaxation.* Thorne's Melaton-3 supplies three mg of melatonin in each capsule, and
Melaton-5 supplies 5 mg per capsule and is used when a higher amount of melatonin is desired. Melatonin also has
significant antioxidant activity.* Adequate melatonin levels have been reported to be a positive factor in
cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, GI, and bone health.*
Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF
Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200
substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2
agonists, and masking agents.
