Melatonin 6mg SR 60 tablets
Melatonin is a hormone that is released from the pineal gland, a pea-sized endocrine gland located in the brain. Specific nutrients and other biochemical substances are required for the body to create melatonin, such as the amino acid tryptophan and the hormone serotonin, along with vitamin B6, folate, SAMe and iron. However, many people do not make enough melatonin, and therefore benefit from additional supplementation. MAA's Melatonin offers 3 mg of quality melatonin in each tablet, along with 10 mg of vitamin B6, one of its most important cofactors.
