Blue Light has a Dark Side
Blue light (from screens) can have serious consequence on our circadian rhythm. Until the advent of artificial lighting the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness. Now, in much of the world, evenings are illuminated.
Exposure to blue light at night suppresses our melatonin production, disrupting our sleep when our body should be recharging and causing adverse health effects.
Why Sleeping Poorly Can Cause Serious Health Issues
The dire health consequences of sleep deprivation range from chronically elevated levels of cortisol (the stress hormone), insulin resistance, and increased fat storage to a greater risk of early mortality.
What most people don't know is that in addition its role in regulating sleep-wake cycles - Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that has many other benefits.
Increase HGH Levels
Studies have shown that melatonin can make the pituitary gland, the organ that releases growth hormone, more sensitive to the hormone that releases growth hormone.
Provides Sustained Energy
Melatonin is actually needed for proper energy metabolism in the body and people with low melatonin levels have been found to suffer from fatigue.
Regulates Your Internal Clock
Melatonin helps regulate your body’s internal clock and is responsible for telling you it is time to sleep, slowing the metabolic processes and when it is time to wake, increasing energy expenditure. When this internal clock is disrupted and Melatonin production is reduced which happens as we age, jet-lag, or shift work, we are predisposed to obesity.
Stress and sleep are very closely connected, making melatonin one of the best supplements for stress relief. If you are feeling anxious, melatonin helps supports brain function and alleviates symptoms of anxiety such as daytime fatigue, drowsiness, insomnia and restlessness and promotes calm.
Helps You Fall Asleep Fast
Melatonin helps you fall asleep faster and have a more restful night of sleep feeling more refreshed and energized in when you wake.
An Integral Role in a Healthy Metabolism
Melatonin is the key mediator molecule in the integration between the cyclic environment and the circadian distribution of physiological and behavioral processes necessary for a healthy metabolism.
Absorption in Seconds
The majority of supplements are simply not worth taking, their benefits are lost in the stomach and never make it to the bloodstream. Our patented technology allows us to nano-size particles; which means 85% of each dose is absorbed within 60 seconds.
I have been amazed at my results with melatonin. Sleeplessness has plagued me since childhood. It doesn't help I have worked 12-hour night shifts in ICU for 14 years. I believe I will be able to decrease and eliminate my prescription sleep aid. I was skeptical, but now pleased. I ordered Kava today!
