Melatonin is a hormone which is naturally secreted by the body, that helps regulate our inherent circadian rhythm (our sleep-wake cycle). As we age, our natural production of melatonin begins to decrease, often leading to the development of sleep issues. Supplementing with a high-quality melatonin can help improve sleep time/quality, diminish general fatigue and improve overall health.
Trophic’s high-potency Melatonin Spray is an effective and safe natural approach to rebalancing the circadian rhythm, increasing sleep time and promoting health. Melatonin has also shown itself to be extremely effective at preventing and/or reducing the symptoms of jet lag in people travelling by plane easterly across two or more time zones.
Our Melatonin Spray contains a synergistic blend of melatonin, 5-HTP, lemon balm and cherry. 5-HTP is a natural serotonin precursor which helps restore optimal serotonin levels and as a result helps improve mood as well as promote regular restful sleep. Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) is a member of the mint family and is considered a potent calming herb. It has a long history in traditional herbal medicine to help promote sleep, reduce stress and regulate mood. Antioxidant-rich cherries contain natural polyphenolic compounds, and as a result, provide powerful sleep-enhancing properties, as well as promote regular moods.
