Sourced from plants
Phytomelatonin is a naturally occurring phytonutrient found in Montmorency Tart Â Cherries and certain New Zealand Sweet Cherries, which support your body’s regular and natural sleep pattern.
Your sleep hormone, melatonin, is secreted by your brain’s pineal gland in small amounts as you wind down at the end of the day and prepare for sleep. As you drift off into your ‘light sleep’, more of your sleep hormone is secreted.
Higher levels of melatoninÂ are secreted when you reach your ‘deep sleep’ state usually 2-3 hours after you have slept continuously from first going to bed.
Why Can’t I Sleep?
Unfortunately many of us don’t sleep long enough to reach our ‘deep sleep’. This means that your pineal gland does not naturally produce enough of melatoninÂ to achieve a quality sleep, and to allow you to sleep continuously through until morning.
Melatonin is only produced at significant levels when it is dark. It is imperative to sleep in a dark room with no light as your body’s natural production of your sleep hormone will be affected.
The light from a clock radio is enough light to signal the brain that daytime is coming and to prepare your body for waking by slowing down the production of your sleep hormone.
NB: Shift workers will still benefit by day, in a dark room
Every Function of the Body is Affected by Sleep
Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water, but most of us don’t get enough sleep. Insufficient sleep, or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle, may cause fatigue, stress, depression, weight gain, poor concentration and skin conditions.
There are several factors which contribute to a quality sleep. For many women hormonal imbalance results in reduced production of melatonin. Many women tend to wake around 1am, 3am and/or 5am, and have difficulty getting back to sleep.
Sleep supports healthy appetite by supporting normal levels of the hormones ghrelin and leptin, which regulate your feelings of hunger and fullness. When we are sleep deprived, we may feel the need to eat more.
Hormones are essentially responsible for all of your emotions. If you do not have enough sleep your hormones can make you feel moody, unhappy, frustrated, upset and subject to mood swings.
Jet lag is the result of disruption of the light/dark cycle that controls the body’s natural circadian rhythms, causing fatigue and difficulty sleeping – your body clock struggles to reset to the new time zone.
If you are unable to fall asleep, or to stay asleep long enough to get a quality full nights sleep, it can make you feel permanently tired. one in three adults in New Zealand may have difficulty achieving a relaxing and quality sleep.
