Melatonin Decline 2018-04-25T09:39:43+00:00

Melatonin Declines with Age

As with every hormone, research shows melatonin levels typically decline with age. Melatonin levels begin to decline around age 30. Then there is a significant  decrease in melatonin levels after age 40, which accelerates as patients approach 60.

Growing scientific data shows that melatonin supplementation can promote both improved sleep onset and maintenance in this patient population. However, the delivery of exogenous melatonin in the body has not been fully optimized for this purpose, until recently.

Melatonin Formulations

Traditional Immediate Release (IR) melatonin formulations on the market can improve sleep onset but fail to address sleep quality and maintenance due to melatonin’s short half-life. Also, timed release melatonin formulations do not faithfully replicate the body’s own melatonin release profile.

REMfresh’s patented Ion Powered Pump System™ (IPP) is scientifically designed to address these limitations by mimicking the body’s own melatonin release profile. It allows melatonin to be continuously released and absorbed throughout the intestinal tract for up to 7 hours.
