Product Description

Melatonin is the hormone that promotes sleep at night. Individuals within the autism spectrum may have lower than normal levels of melatonin. A 2008 study found that unaffected parents of individuals with autism also have lower melatonin levels, and the deficits were associated with the low activity of the ASMT gene, which encodes the last enzyme of melatonin synthesis. (1)

In addition, to helping individuals with autism, Melatonin may also helps individuals with ADHD fall asleep, may benefit older people with declining levels of Melatonin in their bloodstream, acts as neuroprotectant against free radical damage including with individuals with Alzheimer's, improves learning and memory.

Melatonin is a powerful hormone secreted by the pineal gland located in the brain. Its secretion is stimulated by the dark and inhibited by light, and it aids in the regulation of the bodys circadian rhythm, or sleep-wake cycle.

Dosage

One spray under the tongue, approximately 84 sprays per bottle. I would recommend using this every 2-3 nights instead of every night as the brain can acclimate to externally produced hormones and neurotransmitters and then produce less. Our convenient spray includes both Melatonin and B6 which work together to promote calm and sleep.
