Thorne Research, Melaton-3, 60 Veggie Caps6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Melatonin, the primary hormone of the pineal gland, acts as a powerful "chronobiotic," helping to maintain normal circadian rhythms. In individuals having difficulty sleeping or with altered circadian rhythms, such as occur in jet lag and night shift work, supplementation with melatonin can help provide the resynchronization of those cycles, at amounts ranging from 0.3-8.0 mg. Synthesis of melatonin from the amino acid tryptophan can be decreased by the aging process. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant. Adequate melatonin levels have been reported to be a positive factor cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and bone health.
Melatonin administration exerts a sedative-like effect in amounts of 0.3-5.0 mg. When taken before onset of one's own melatonin secretion, even low amounts of melatonin can promote sleep. Melatonin is thought to potentiate the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) via direct interaction with GABA receptors, thus resulting in relaxation. Research indicates melatonin exerts sleep-promoting action by decreasing the time to fall asleep, improving the ability to stay asleep, and enhancing the depth of sleep. Thorne's Melaton-3 supplies 3 mg of melatonin in each capsule. This potency is ideal for those individuals who may require a moderate amount of melatonin.
