The often seen 3mg melatonin may be too much. I read that melatonin works better at lower doses, and I have had no dizziness or hangover. I use the 1/2 mg or 500mcg. chewable peppermint melatonin from Trader Joe’s…that dose is hard to find elsewhere. Very occasionally I may take two, so at most 1 mg works well for me. Due to all the risks coming to light, I take no OTC sleep aids nor NSAIDS ever. What dose melatonin do you recommend?

Melatonin at 50mcg, 500mcg, and 5mg does not appear to significantly influence prolactin levels over 150 minutes post-ingestion, a time frame during which melatonin influences other hormones. 5mg of melatonin taken for four days appears to positively influence 24-hour prolactin levels, however.

Interactions between melatonin and exercise in regard to growth hormone are somewhat mixed, as one study using 500mcg and 5mg of melatonin against placebo in young and otherwise healthy people experienced with resistance training, noted that, for 120 minutes after exercise, 5mg melatonin significantly increased growth hormone response, relative to placebo, in men, while 500mcg trended towards significance. This study has a research grant from Iovate Health Sciences. Other studies on the subject note that a 5mg oral dose of melatonin taken before anaerobic bicycle exercise can significantly increase the peak and overall exposure to growth hormone by approximately 72%. One other study in resistance-trained adult men undergoing full-body resistance training supplementing 6mg melatonin an hour before exercise noted that melatonin actually decreased the exercise-induced spikes in growth hormone, relative to placebo.

Neuro SLEEP combines the benefits of melatonin with 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), magnesium and L-theanine, plus the superfruit extracts pomegranate, acai and blueberry. Melatonin is naturally produced in the body in the absence of sunlight to help prepare the body for rest. Melatonin is also ubiquitous in nature, occurring in plants, grains and some fruits, suggesting it may have other functions aside from regulating the biological clock (circadian rhythm) of mammals. The ingredient has been thoroughly studied for its effect on sleep (see expanded science for references). Magnesium is a mineral and electrolyte provided at 50 mg per bottle (13% DV). L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea, which may not influence sleep, but has been studied for its purported relaxation effects. Lastly, 5-HTP is a form of L-tryptophan – an amino acid commonly associated with and found in turkey. 5-HTP is present in neuro SLEEP at a very low dosage.
