The natural secretion of melatonin can be disrupted by factors such as stress, ageing, menopause, depression, a diet that is low on carbohydrates, insufficient exercise, jet lag and excessive consumption of alcohol. Disruptions in melatonin production often lead to difficulties sleeping and reduced sleep quality. Poor sleep quality most often manifests as restlessness or waking up during the early morning hours.
Helps you fall asleep – Strong and fast-acting melatonin
The melatonin in Apteq Melatonin Comp tablets is released quickly, helping you fall asleep faster. The best application of melatonin is in reducing the time it takes to fall asleep. One tablet contains 1.9 mg of melatonin.
Effect lasts until the early hours – Long-acting L-theanine
L-theanine, which continues to act until the early morning hours, achieves peak plasma concentration after approximately one hour.1 After this, L-theanine crosses the blood-brain barrier and achieves maximum concentration in the brain after approximately five hours.2 This means L-theanine is longer-acting than melatonin. Finally, L-theanine metabolizes efficiently into urine.3 One tablet contains 50 mg of L-theanine.
