While melatonin is most commonly known to treat sleep disorders, many may not know that melatonin is closely connected with the our circadian rhythms – our internal body clocks that regulate hormone levels, metabolism, gene expression, sleep and wakefulness, and appetite. The pineal gland produces melatonin, which keeps these rhythms in check.
Disruption of the circadian rhythms and decreases in melatonin can occur from light exposure at night, shift work, long hours, and/or aging, and has been associated with various serious health concerns, including increased risk of cancers, poor cognition, bone loss, sleep and weight issues, heart problems and more.
Join us in this podcast to learn about simple life hacks to minimize circadian disruption and boost the body’s natural production of melatonin.

Liquid Melatonin 3mg is engineered to help find the best individual dosages with simple, easy to follow instructions. One drop contains 0.1 mg of melatonin, ten drops contain 1 mg, and thirty drops contain 3 mg of melatonin.
To find the best dosage, start with 0.3 mg (3 drops) for 1-5 nights and then assess how you feel based on your quality of sleep and your energy levels in the morning. Take less if you are groggy the next day.
Once you establish the right dosage for you, stay on that dose for 3 months to complete a circadian rhythm reset. If you are over the age of 50, consider testing your melatonin and cortisol levels to determine if there is an age-related imbalance; if so talk to your health care professional about the potential benefits and risks of long-term supplementation.
Melatonin HP is a vegetarian formula with a biphasic delivery system that releases melatonin quickly and then steadily. Melatonin is naturally produced in the pineal gland in response to changes in light exposure; it helps promote healthy sleep patterns as well as antioxidant and immune activities. Melatonin HP can support these functions by helping to maintain normal levels of melatonin in the body.
The Sleep Balance Profile by ZRT Laboratory is a melatonin and cortisol Dried Urine test that circumvents the disadvantages of serum, saliva, and 24-hour urine tests commonly used for testing these hormones. Urine is collected on filter strips at 4 time points throughout the day that are representative of the peaks and troughs of melatonin and cortisol production.
