What is Melatonin?

Melatonin is a neurohormone released from the pineal gland and known for regulating sleep. Melatonin is made from serotonin which is derived from L-tryptophan. The body uses melatonin for sleep by normalizing sleep patterns and regulating the circadian rhythm. Melatonin is regulated by sunlight so melatonin levels typically rise throughout the evening and stay elevated during the night allowing a person to sleep. Additionally, light suppresses the synthesis of melatonin so levels will drop drastically in the morning or when someone is exposed to light which allows a person to wake up.

Melatonin Benefits and Uses

While Melatonin is naturally produced, irregular sleep patterns can be developed over time. Melatonin supplementation is commonly used for sleep support and may help regulate sleeping habits.

Is Melatonin Considered a Nootropic?

Because Melatonin helps regulate sleep patterns (thus allowing for better sleep), it is suggested that it may also support a positive mood.

What Does Melatonin Do?

People typically use melatonin to support a healthy night’s sleep. Studies observing melatonin found that it is effective for reducing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep. However, this does not translate directly to sleep quality or REM sleep.

How Much Melatonin Should I Take?

As a dietary supplement, take one 300mcg Melatonin capsule daily.

While it is common to see doses of melatonin at 3mg ,5mg, or 10mg increments, the concept of “more is better” does not always hold true for melatonin dosing. In fact, melatonin is usually more effective in lower doses for most people.

A study on subjects who had trouble sleeping showed that Melatonin dosage of 300mcg was more effective than 3mg. A comparative study on melatonin dosage between 500mcg and 20mg in blind subjects revealed that 500mcg was more effective at regulating circadian rhythm than 20mg. Moreover, this was re-trialed later by comparing 10mg to 20mg and results found that 10mg was still more effective than 20mg but was insignificantly different from a 500mcg dose.

How Much Melatonin Is Too Much?

Too much melatonin may actually disturb your sleep-wake cycle and may cause unwanted effects. Some people are more sensitive to melatonin than others so doses that trigger unwanted effects may vary from person to person. In general, it is a good practice to start with a low dose and gradually increase over time until the desired effects are achieved. A dose from a Melatonin supplement that is too high may make you feel groggy during the day or create nightmares. An adult typically starts with a .3mg (300mcg) dose.

If the starting Melatonin dose is tolerated well but not effective, then the person can slowly increase their Melatonin dosage until desired results are achieved.

How To Take Melatonin

A melatonin supplement can be taken orally.

It is a good rule of thumb to take a Melatonin supplement about 30 minutes before bed to experience its beneficial effects on sleep.

    Melatonin 300 mcg

    Well I have to say that I was sceptical about the tiny dose of Melatonin, after always taking at least 3 mg per night. But the tiny dose seems to work just fine, I take it with Magnesium at night and have been having lovely sleeps :)

    Quality Product

    I have taken other brands of melatonin before, with little affect. Nootropics Depot Malatonin has me sleeping well in just minutes.

    Works the best for me

    Great little sleep aid. Remember that with melatonin, for most people and most of the time; less is more. 300mcg works very well.

    I have ordered this melatonin two times now and it still works great! Just one of these little pills before bed and I am snoozing like a baby.

    Good low dose of melatonin

    Favorite dosage of melatonin here. Most others are 5mg and above which leave me groggy in the morning. This pill gives my body a hint that it’s time for bed. They don’t keep me asleep through the night but act as a solid start

    Can be useful in getting that 'I'm ready to go to bed now' feeling.

    Melatonin 300mcg

    I've used Montmorency Cherry products that are supposed to contain Melatonin. Some were good, some not much more effective than water. In comparison these contain more of a punch. The first time I took one before bed, it produced more of a sleepy feeling than I am used to. It was a good job I was already laying down.

    Great value, great product

    The 3-10mgs in most stores is way to much, 300mcg is closer to what the brain makes every night.

    Helps with sleep

    These melatonin capsules appear to be helping me sleep with little to no side effects.

    Helped me sleep better than anything else that I have tried.

    Perfect dose

    I take this along with prescribed Lunesta, and 2 capsules of ND Mag Glycinate. It's been the perfect add on, and in general I can see someone with less sleep problems than I do having superior effects with just this alone. I'm so glad ND came out with a formulation of a normal dose such as this. And with the price for a 4 month supply, you can't go wrong. Another win for ND

    Perfect dosage, great effect

    Was happy to see that the capsules are being sold with the most efficient dosage and I don't have to split the content. My sleep was always good, I've decided to take melatonin for the whole combination of its great effects, but taking a capsule 30 min before going to sleep has indeed increased the ease of falling asleep even for me. Thank you, will order again.

    Works as it should

    It works, getting sleepy and able to fall asleep quicker than usual, however, the quality of sleep didn't improve. Quality product from ND, as usual, thank you, guys!

    Puts me to sleep

    I take one of these 30 minutes before bed and I am out like a light for the night. I've taken some melatonin from the grocery store and I wake up groggy. Not with this stuff. It is probably the lower dosage. This one works great for me.

    It did not work for me.

    It didn't have any effect on me whatsoever, sleep did not come any easier than if i hadn't of taken them actually they seemed to keep me awake more than usual when i took them, but after reading some information online i see that they can cause the opposite reaction than expected it a percentage of the population i guess im that percentage of the population. Was hoping they might work.
