Melatonin is a substance found in almost all cells from the simplest life forms (algae) to the human body. Melatonin is produced and secreted by the pineal gland and as we age secretion decreases.Supplementation of melatonin may be able to replace the decreased secretion that is part of the aging process.
The hormone melatonin in clinical studies has shown to produce rapid sleep onset, and to increase the duration of sleep.
Some reports show that around the age of 6, melatonin secretions from the pineal gland begin to decrease; due to the increased intake of food as we grow (melatonin is thought to be found in all foods). But the melatonin in foods may not be enough to supply the ongoing needs of the body, so it is highly recommended to use dietary supplementation as a means of receiving additional melatonin.
Melapure® Melatonin is both patented and USP pharmaceutical grade, and follows the same chemical pathway as natural melatonin produced within the body via the pineal gland. Melatonin is a hormone, and because it is hormones must be USP pharmaceutical grade to ensure it is free from biological contaminants. Melapure® Melatonin is a well tolerated, non-habit-forming agent which does not produce grogginess. As an antioxidant it may turn back the ravages of time by “resetting” the body’s aging clock. Melapure® Melatonin has demonstrated beneficial effects against jet lag, without the apparent adverse side effects of other remedies. Studies recently indicate melatonin may bolster our immune system, slow the growth of cataracts and tumors, and help fight off heart disease, all of which are exacerbated by stress.
More than 50 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, including insomnia, excessive drowsiness, and restless movement during sleep. Sleep disorders can disrupt a person’s lifestyle by causing a shorter attention span, decreased energy and physical strength.
More importantly, those suffering from a lack of sleep are more prone to accidents, depression and infections. Four to six million Americans each year receive medications for sleeping pills; these prescriptions often cause side effects including grogginess, escalating to tolerance, dependence and withdrawal symptoms.
Once the drug is discontinued sleep patterns may be worse than before the treatment was started.
Melapure® Melatonin shares none of these problems, and therefore is considered to be an ideal sleep-inducing aid. Life Choice uses the purest source of Melatonin in the world, guaranteeing superior results.
What is Melatonin for?
Melatonin helps to increase the total sleep time in people suffering from jet lag, sleep restriction or altered sleep schedules such as shift workers.
What is the source of Life Choice melatonin?
Melapure® Melatonin is completely vegan, derived synthetically from 5-Methoxytryptamine. Melatonin is USP pharmaceutical grade and synthesized through a chemical pathway that uses the amino acid tryptophan as its precursor molecule.
Does supplementing with the melatonin prevent our body from producing its own melatonin over time? Can I experience any side effects?
Melatonin is a hormone and because it is it must be sourced from USP pharmaceutical grade for safety. There are virtually no side effects while using Life Choice Melatonin Melapure®. Life Choice Melatonin Melapure® is a patented USP pharmaceutical grade melatonin; the starting position for manufacturing is the amino acid tryptophan, the same as our pineal gland uses to create serotonin. The tryptophan pathway has governors that can reroute excess melatonin this way it does not overload the pineal gland. Melatonin that is derived from unknown sources can cause serious side effects.
What are the differences between natural or unknown melatonin sources?
These two forms of melatonin are vastly different. The cheaper Chinese sourced melatonin could be derived from the pineal gland of animals and or mixed with unknown synthetic material with little or no documentation or clinical verification. Melapure® melatonin on the other hand uses the same chemical pathway as natural melatonin produced in the brain. Natural (pigs) or unknown sources may pose a risk to humans because it can be contaminated with animal viruses and air born contamination. USP pharmaceutical grade synthetically produced melatonin is much safer to use because it is free from biological contaminants and backed by clinical science and supporting 3rd party evaluation.
Why is Melatonin being used to fight cancer?
Because it is most effective in releasing serotonin through the pineal gland, therapeutic serotonin release is helpful for treating many chronic health conditions. Using non-USP grade melatonin for treating cancer will not be a good idea; the product quality is in question as it could be sourced from animal or synthetic chemical extraction. Melapure® Melatonin is scientifically tested and because the high doses used for treating cancer is above 20 mg per day the quality is of great importance.
Why does Life Choice® do packaging differently?
Plastic is a global concern and Life Choice® takes this matter seriously, so much so that Life Choice was honoured with the 22019 Supplier Sustainability Award from the Canadian Health Food Association. We wish to bring attention to our packaging, the reason Life Choice chooses to pay more for PET packaging is because PET is the most recyclable bottles on the planet: this type of plastic can be used over and over again. PET is sustainable: increasing numbers of PET plastic bottles are made from recycled PET. PET packages are coded number 1, (bottle bottom), they use less oil compared to other plastic bottles. We could chose cheaper packaging of various sizes but they leave a larger carbon footprint and this is something we will not do. Even the cotton we use to prevent capsule breakage is produced from organic cotton and it can be reused for many purposes.
