Up all night? If you're having trouble falling or staying asleep, melatonin pills may help. Your body needs sufficient rest in order to repair itself.
A melatonin supplement, such as Pure Encapsulations' Melatonin 0.5 mg, works by supporting your body's natural sleep/wake cycle, which may allow you to fall asleep more quickly and improve the restorative quality of your sleep. Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced by the pineal gland, but this natural production may need assistance.
Certain enzymes secrete melatonin in a circadian rhythm. Ideally, you will feel bright and awake during the day and tired at night; these enzymes are activated by exposure to darkness, and their melatonin production is decreased when you are exposed to light. This process worked well in the past, when natural sunlight was the main source of light. However, nowadays there's not only electricity but more technology than ever; the bright light from smartphones, computers, tablets, and TVs may interfere with your ability to get enough quality sleep each night. People who work the late shift may also struggle with sleeping, since they have to be awake at night and need to rest during the day when the sun is out.
Instead of stronger sleep aids that knock you out, melatonin for sleep may help you feel better in a small dose. Each capsule provides half a milligram of melatonin, so you don't take more than you need.
Take one capsule, a half-hour to one hour before going to bed. At the recommended dosage, each 180-capsule bottle of Melatonin 0.5 mg by Pure Encapsulations should last for about six months.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality, hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

I was turned on to Melatonin by my naturopathic doctor who prescribes Pure Encapsulations supplements 90% of the time. Unless my blood sugar levels are very messed up, in which case I need longer to fall asleep, if I take it on an empty stomach it works like a dream. I particularly like that it is so easy to take 1 1/5 mg. due to the .5 mg. size. I swear by it!
