Doesn’t My Body Already Make Melatonin? How Will More Help Me Sleep?
Your body produces melatonin naturally. However, your body may not produce enough at times to help promote the feeling of sleep. Melatonin works in your body by increasing its levels in the evening to prepare your body for sleep. In the morning, these levels lower so you can wake up feeling rested. If your body isn’t producing enough naturally, your circadian rhythms may be off-balance, and your sleep may be disrupted.
What’s the Difference Between Best Rest Formula and Melatonin?
Best Rest Formula isn’t just melatonin. It contains several natural herbs that have been traditionally used to enhance sleep, including passionflower, valerian, chamomile, hops, and lemon balm. Each of these promotes feelings of relaxation and calm. In addition to these natural herbs, the other ingredients included are either naturally occurring in the body or additionally support the same feelings of calm and relaxation. These naturally occurring ingredients are GABA, melatonin, and Pyridoxal-5-phosphate, which is normally produced in the liver.
