Recommended use: Helps increase the total sleep time (aspect of sleep quality) in people suffering from sleep restriction or altered sleep schedule. Melatonin plays a major role in the circadian regulation of the sleepwake cycle, and has proven critically important for both initiation and quality of sleep, with supplementation improving sleep in healthy individuals and in those with insomnia, as well as preventing phase shifts due to jet lag or rotating work schedules.
