Sleep Better with a Melatonin Supplement
Sleep is a wonderful thing, and it also happens to be essential for almost every function in the body. A good night's rest is often an indicator of a good day's work. So if sleep is so important, why doesn't it come easily to some people? Why do some people have to battle to get a few hours while others can go out like a light?
What is Melatonin Powder?
Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a hormone that naturally occurs in humans, animals, plants, and even microbes.  Because of its ubiquity in nature, melatonin has been widely studied and found to be an important signaling molecule.*
Humans primarily produce Melatonin by the pineal gland, and throughout the day melatonin levels will oscillate up and down in what is called the Circadian Rhythm. The Circadian Rhythm is an important biological function that helps us go to sleep easily, stay asleep, and wake up feeling rested and alert.*
Melatonin is a large part of the Circadian Rhythm but has many other roles to play. It is essential to body functions ranging from the promoting cellular, cardiovascular, skeletal, and cognitive health.* 
Melatonin Powder as a Cellular Health Supplement
The most widely-known Melatonin benefit is its use as a sleep aid. A powerful cellular health supplement, Melatonin not only diminishes cell damaging free-radical activity, but also up-regulates certain cellular health enzymes.  An immunoregulator, melatonin has been shown to be an integral part of the body's defense systems.* 
Melatonin Powder For Quality Sleep
Of course the major use of melatonin supplementation is to promote healthy sleep and relaxation. Supplementing melatonin at night may help supplement sleep quality and reduce sleep onset time, which is a great relief to people that struggle to get enough.* 
Additional Melatonin Benefits
This supplement promotes healthy body composition, too.* In animal studies, melatonin supplementation in aging rat's increased their melatonin to youthful levels, which resulted in decreased body fat. 
Melatonin Powder Dosage
Users typically take Melatonin powder in one of three dosages: 1 mg, 3 mg, or 5 mg about an hour before bedtime so as not to interfere with daily activities. Users often add Melatonin to their regimen to balance out other supplements which many might find too stimulating at night.
