By definition, melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in our brain.

However, the pineal gland is not its only source because it is also naturally present in foods such as grapes, olives, and barley as well as in dietary supplements.

Melatonin is known to help insomnia patients get more and better quality sleep. Furthermore, it also helps our body manage cortisol levels, blood pressure, and immune function.

1. Supports Better Sleep

Melatonin is often called the sleep hormone thanks to its sleep-inducing properties — which are backed by multiple scientific studies.

According to one study conducted on 50 insomnia patients, taking melatonin supplement 2 hours before going to bed not only helped participants fall asleep faster but also enhanced overall sleep quality.

Furthermore, a large analysis of 19 studies on effects of melatonin on adults and children concludes that the sleep hormone has the following 3 benefits:

  1. Increases sleep time
  2. Improves sleep quality
  3. Reduces time taken for people to fall asleep

One thing to note here is that melatonin’s sleep-inducing effects are not as strong as any sleep medication. However, using melatonin is less risky because it has significantly fewer side effects as compared to sleep medicines.

2. Can Reduce Symptoms of Seasonal Depression

For those of you who don’t know, seasonal depression, aka seasonal affective disorder (SAD), is a common condition that affects up to 10% of people worldwide. (1)

SAD occurs due to many reasons, one of which is changes in your circadian rhythm caused by seasonal changes. (2)

Since melatonin plays a key role in regulating circadian rhythm, it can improve the symptoms of SAD significantly.

According to this study conducted on 68 people, changes in circadian rhythm contributes to seasonal depression, and a daily dose of melatonin can effectively reduce symptoms of SAD.

3. May Increase Levels of Human Growth Hormone

In case you didn’t already know, human growth hormone (HGH) is a type of hormone that is vital for growth and cellular regeneration.

HGH is one of, if not the most important hormone in our bodies. According to several studies, higher levels of HGH are directly linked to an increase in strength and muscle mass. (3, 4)

Multiple recent studies suggest that melatonin supports the growth of HGH.

This study concludes that melatonin increases HGH levels in both small (0.5 mg) and large (5 mg) doses. Another bigger study conducted on 32 participants concludes the same results.

Health Issues Associated With Melatonin Deficiency

As you can probably tell by now, melatonin is vital for proper functioning of our bodies.

Melatonin deficiency can lead to several health problems and diseases, including:

  • Cancer
  • Severe pain
  • Diabetes type-2
  • Certain types of dementia
  • Certain types of mood disorders

With that being said, cases of melatonin deficiency are rare because our pineal glands produce this hormone on their own. However, insomnia patients can benefit a lot from melatonin supplements.

Daily Recommended Intake

The daily recommended intake of melatonin is 0.5-10 milligrams. However, since there are different types of melatonin, each one has its own recommended intake.

So when you are using a melatonin supplement, it’s a smart idea to check the label for the recommended intake.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
