)-- Doctor's Best has introduced Quick Melt Melatonin into its dietary supplement line. Scott Steinford, CEO of Doctor's Best, made the announcement. This product comes as 60 unique delivery, quick melt dissolving tablets, with each providing 2.5 mg of easily absorbed melatonin in a tasty chocolate mint flavor. This is in addition to the 10 and 120 tablet sizes also offered by Doctor’s Best.
Melatonin is a natural substance that is secreted by the pineal gland to regulate sleep in response to light and darkness. The rhythm of melatonin secretion is regulated by the body’s master internal clock, or “biological clock,” a group of nerve cells in the brain’s hypothalamus known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Melatonin type 2 receptors of the SCN receive information from the eyes about the amount of light present in the environment. With darkness, more melatonin is released; 80% of melatonin production occurs at night.
Melatonin is known most prominently for its ability to support healthy sleep. However, it is also involved in the regulation of several distinct areas of health, including cardiovascular, reproductive, and endocrine functions. According to Steinford, “With each year bringing more research on this substance, including accumulating evidence on its antioxidant activity, melatonin may soon be commonly known for more than synchronizing sleep with circadian rhythms.”
