Sometimes for one reason or another, the body does not produce adequate amounts of melatonin for its needs. The body's ability to synthesize melatonin may decrease with age, as children manufacture more melatonin than the elderly do. But melatonin production begins to drop at puberty. Melatonin, from Unicity, is the easy way to complement the body's production of this important hormone. Each tablet contains 2.5 milligrams of melatonin to help regulate your sleep cycle. Melatonin is not addictive and does not have a sedative effect upon waking.
Melatonin helps increase quality and amount of sleep for people suffering from sleep restriction or an altered sleep schedule (e.g. shift work and jet lag). It also helps to relieve the daytime fatigue associated with jet lag. Melatonin also helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome. Over time, it helps reset the body's sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is non-habit forming when taken as directed.
