Go back to sleep when it’s time to
We all need sleep during specific times of the day. The sleep-wake cycle is a constant in our lives and is marked by an internal “biological clock” that dictates when to wake up and when to fall sleep. This cycle is called the circadian rhythm and covers 24 hours, divided into 8 hours for sleep and 16 hours for wakefulness.
Aquilea Melatonina® is a dietary supplement based on melatonin, which helps to reduce the time needed to fall asleep and to alleviate the subjective feeling of jetlag and vitamin B6, which contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system.

WHAT IS MELATONIN?
Melatonin is a substance produced by the pineal gland, a group of cells located in the brain that act throughout the night.
Melatonin generation is determined by cycles of light and darkness. As night falls, our body begins to produce melatonin; the more darkness there is, the more is generated. Once there is complete darkness, melatonin production is at its highest. It is at this time when we are ready to begin to sleep.
As night turns into day, the pineal gland stops making melatonin and our biological clock tells us that it is time to wake up.
Our body stops producing melatonin as the years pass. Perhaps for this reason young people have less difficulty falling asleep and, in old age, melatonin production is reduced.
INNOVATION: BILAYER TABLET
The bilayer tablet, contains a first layer of melatonin that helps you fall asleep, and a second, extended-release layer, consisting of valerian, passionflower and Californian poppy extracts, which provide restful sleep.
WHY IS SLEEP SO IMPORTANT?
Did you know that if we reach the age of 90, we will have been awake for 60 years and sleeping for 30 years? Sleep is the longest activity we carry out throughout our lives.
Not only does it take us a lot of time, but also we need it. It is a physiological state of a relative lowering of consciousness and inactivity, and it has a vital function that we need to live.
