Sleep is the single most important part of staying healthy and feeling good. Good quality sleep is directly correlated to better body composition, stronger mental health, improved quality of life and prevention of disease.
Proper Melatonin Dosage
Melatonin is a hormone made by your body’s pineal gland; a pea-sized gland located just above the middle of the brain. During the day the pineal gland is inactive. When the sun goes down and darkness occurs, the pineal gland is “turned on” by the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) and begins to actively produce melatonin. That is why melatonin is sometimes called the “Dracula of hormones” – it only comes out in the dark. When melatonin levels in the blood rise, you begin to feel less alert and sleep becomes more inviting.
Bright light, including the artificial light from your phone, TV and computer, directly inhibits the release of melatonin. Even if the pineal gland is switched “on” because it’s past 9PM, it will not produce melatonin unless the person is in a dimly lit environment. Since all of us are exposed to artificial light in the evening hours, supplementing with melatonin is highly beneficial to restoring your body’s circadian rhythm.
Sleep Juice contains 0.5mg of melatonin per serving. This is the exact amount of melatonin your body would naturally produce if it wasn’t exposed to artificial light in the evening hours. This dosage is safe to use and won’t make you feel groggy the next morning
