Nature’s Harmony® Timed Release Melatonin in a 2 mg tablet is a long-lasting (6- to 8- hour) dosage form appropriate for those individuals who have diffi culty sleepingthrough the night and tend to wake too soon. Melatonin promotes normal sleep patterns and more restful sleep. It also eases shift work transitions, and may relieve jet lag without the hazards or side effects of prescription sleeping pills.
In the natural sleep-wake cycle, darkness triggers the release of melatonin. Once released into the bloodstream, melatonin prepares the body for sleep, decreasing temperature, alertness and performance. Melatonin supplements interact with melatonin receptors in the brain in the same way to induce sleep and help regulate the body’s normal sleep patterns.
When taken 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime, melatonin interacts with melatonin receptors in the brain to activate the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin also helps maintain youthful, healthy tissues by supporting the body’s regeneration process.

Since Melatonin has a short half life it is more beneficial to take a low dose in time release rather than a high does. You see 10mg Melatonin on the market , that is a bad idea (unless used on very occasional days) as it is much more than the human body produces. This is 2 mg Time release works great and you feel alert in the morning.
I normally take valerian for helping me to sleep every night, but I also take one of these melatonin tablets on days I feel a little more tense and I fear I won't be able to sleep. These pills really make me feel drowsy. These time release ones are the best because they release the melatonin into your system gradually so you can sleep all night. When I was taking a different brand, I would go right to sleep but then wake right up about 1 am and not be able to fall back asleep. These ones are great because they allow you to sleep for much longer. The low dose is better too, because at high doses you can become dependent on melatonin, it isn't a good idea.
I was a bit reluctant to take any sleep aids, even after researching it and finding no cause to be worried about melatonin. Luckily, these pills gently help me relax into sleep very quickly. I don't take them consistently, but when I need a little help falling asleep in the first place, they really do help and I sleep calmly through the night with no grogginess the next day.
Melatonin has a short half life (its stays in your system for a short time). This is perfect because the time release mechanism ensures that you sleep well the entire night. There is no need to take high doses of melatonin, the key is to use it in a time release such as this product. Price was EXCELLENT.
