Melatonin Liquid is a quickly absorbed form of melatonin that may support healthy sleep. It may also be a useful supplement for daytime stress management, among a variety of other beneficial properties.
Clinical research suggests the benefits of melatonin supplementation may include:
Supports proper sleep cycles and circadian rhythms
Supports healthy growth hormone production
May help with falling asleep and jet lag
Supports relaxation and calmness
Supports immune function
Serving Size: Half Dropper (0.5 mL)
Other Ingredients: Water, glycerin, xylitol, natural flavors, potassium sorbate, and citric acid.
Directions: Shake well. Take half of a dropper (0.5 mL) just prior to bedtime as needed or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Place one serving under tongue and hold for 30 seconds or mix with 8 ounces of water.

Melatonin secretion is regulated by hormone/neurotransmitter norepinephrine. Exposure to light environments (such as daylight) reduces melatonin synthesis by stopping stimulation of norepinephrine, whereas exposure to dark environments does the opposite. Thus, it is easier for people to fall asleep when it’s dark outside as opposed to bright, sunny times of the day.
This is why normal circadian rhythms are imperative for proper melatonin production and a healthy sleep cycle. Night shift workers may struggle to sleep for more than several hours per day as their body is essentially on an inverse schedule in terms of normal circadian rhythms.
There are a host of benefits that arise from supplementing with melatonin due to its ability to support healthy sleep patterns. Research shows that when circadian rhythms and sleep-wake cycles are askew, a wide range of health problems and premature aging are more likely to occur.
Clinical evidence demonstrates that individuals with irregular sleep patterns and those that work night shifts and/or get jet lag from traveling may benefit from melatonin supplementation. Melatonin may also be useful for those who have trouble falling and staying asleep at night.
Furthermore, melatonin is a potent antioxidant with immune-supporting properties. Antioxidants are molecules that reduce oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species in the body.
