The sleep cycle is as natural as night and day, but sleep can sometimes be difficult to come by due to our overly active lifestyles or even some health-related issues. More than 3 million Americans use a melatonin sleep aid, according to a 2012 national survey.† Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by your body’s pineal gland. The pineal gland cycles along with the sunrise and sunset, actively producing melatonin in the evening. Your body releases the newly produced melatonin into your bloodstream elevating your melatonin levels and giving sleep that cozy and inviting feeling we all love so much.
This system worked great for humans through much of our existence, but we’ve turned into a 24-hour-a-day species and artificial light now takes an actual effort to avoid at night. This change can disrupt your body’s melatonin development, which then can disrupt your regular sleep patterns interrupting the body’s rehabilitation process preparing you for the next day’s events. An estimated 10 percent of people living in First World Countries were diagnosed with a significant sleep disorder and another 25 percent experience problems sleeping or feeling tired during the day.†
According to an article published in 2017 in the Sleep Medicine Review that looked at how effective melatonin worked to treat primary sleep disorders in adults, reviewers found evidence supporting melatonin as a viable supplement in helping people fall asleep faster and even showed evidence suggesting that melatonin could help blind people better regulate their sleep patterns.†
Melatonin supplements can work to support a body’s return to normal sleep-wake cycles, but ordinary melatonin supplements can leave the body after up to only four hours. So, while supplements may aid in falling asleep, they may not be effective for maintaining effective sleep throughout the night. Bio-Tech Pharmacal’s new sustained-release melatonin Melatonin SR is developed with Microactive® Melatonin, which addresses this issue through micronized, sustained-release technology. The micronization process ensures that the melatonin is gradually released over seven hours, providing a consistent dose over a lengthier period and a more restful sleep.
Bio-Tech doesn’t pack melatonin with unnecessary, inactive ingredients that could cause allergic reactions, rather our all-natural, time-released, MicroActive Melatonin SR provides you with the cleanest ingredients ensuring a restful, consistent sleep allowing you to wake up refreshed to take on the day.
Don’t take more melatonin, take the right melatonin with Bio-Tech MicroActive® Melatonin SR.
