Valens Melatonin is an innovative food supplement with melatonin, which helps control your sleep cycle. Convenient oral spray form enables easy dosing and optimal absorption, which starts in the oral cavity. It contains a combination of melatonin and vitamin B6, which contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and to the regulation of hormonal activity (aids in the production of melatonin).
Melatonin is a hormone, naturally produced in the body. Low oral doses of melatonin raise melatonin concentrations to those normally occurring nocturnally, which is why Valens Melatonin contains 0,33 mg melatonin per spray.
The product does not contain sugar, gluten, lactose, artificial flavors or colors. It has an excellent blackcurrant flavor and contains xylitol, which gives the product a sweeter taste. It is suitable for use prior to sleep.
What is melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone, naturally produced by the pineal glands in our brains during the night time. Secretion of melatonin starts as soon as darkness falls, and natural concentration reaches its peak between 2 and 4 AM. As it only comes out at night, it is sometimes called “the hormone of darkness”. Not only does it regulate sleep, it also helps regulate your body temperature, blood pressure, blood glucose, body weight and levels of some other hormones.
Due to fast rhythm of the modern life, stress, night shifts, time differences after traveling etc., secretion of melatonin is often disturbed. Sleep problems are therefore not very uncommon and can affect many people, especially older adults, shift workers and those who travel a lot (due to jet lag). Supplementation with melatonin works closely with your body circadian rhythm – research indicates it may help you fall asleep faster, help with jet lag, increases total sleep time etc.
