Dosage Recommended Guidelines:
Directions: Take half to one (maximum two) 3mg tablets at bedtime only, ideally between 10 PM and 11 PM.

Melatonin MZS Supplemental Facts:
Serving Size: 1 Tablet
Other Ingredients: Avicel, Mannitol, Povidonum, and Magnesium Sterate
Note: Keep in cool, dark conditions, out of the reach of children and consume before the end of the expiration date. Not for use by pregnant or lactating women.
Warning: Whilst melatonin has not shown any toxicity in studies, we do not recommend that this product should be given to healthy children (who already produce it in abundance), pregnant women and lactating mothers or nursing (since no one knows how excessive exposure to the hormone might affect a foetus or infant); people with severe allergies or autoimmune diseases (Melatonin could exacerbate such conditions by stimulating the immune system); people with immune-system cancers such as lymphoma or leukaemia (for the same reason) unless specifically prescribed by a physician. Women trying to conceive should also think twice about taking the hormone, since high doses can act as a contraceptive.
Side Effects: A small number of users experience varying degrees of mild headaches and morning grogginess; however this is rare and can often be overcome by reducing the dos
With Melatonin MZS You Really Can Enjoy A Sound Night’s Sleep.
Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland at night to regulate our circadian rhythm (sometimes called the sleep wake cycle). As we age the amount of melatonin we produce reduces resulting in many older people sleeping less and having a lower quality of sleep. Formulated by the world’s foremost melatonin expert Dr Walter Pierpaoli, unlike any other melatonin supplement on the market Melatonin Zn Se mimics the natural night peak of melatonin to leave you feeling refreshed and alert the following day.
Effects of melatonin in Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe visual loss in aged people. Melatonin has been shown to have the capacity to control eye pigmentation and thereby regulate the amount of light reaching the photoreceptors, to scavenge hydroxyradicals and to protect retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells from oxidative damage. Therefore, it is reasonable to think that the physiological decrease of melatonin in aged people may be an important factor in RPE dysfunction, which is a well known cause for initiation of AMD. Our purpose is to explore a new approach to prevent or reverse AMD. We began case control study with a follow-up of 6 to 24 months. One hundred patients with AMD were diagnosed and 3 mg melatonin was given orally each night at bedtime for at least 3 months. Both dry and wet forms of AMD were included. Fifty-five patients were followed for more than 6 months. At 6 months of the trial, the visual acuity had been kept stable in general. Though the follow up time is not long, this result is already better than the otherwise estimated natural course.1,2 The change of the fundus picture was remarkable. Only 8 eyes showed more retinal bleeding and 6 eyes more retinal exudates. The majority had reduced pathologic macular changes. We conclude that the daily use of 3 mg melatonin seems to protect the retina and to delay macular degeneration. No significant side effects were observed.

Melatonin MZS 01/14/2016
I have dry ARMD and have been taking Melatonin MZS
(Dr. Pierpaoli's original formula) for 6 months. I have just been to my optometrist for a scan to check my condition. The scan shows signs of reversal! My quality of sleep has also improved but my motivation for taking Melatonin MZS was for the benefit of my ARMD. I will be checked again in 6 months and will provide a further update. I have no hesitation in recommending this melatonin supplement which I have only ordered from Vita-Stream as it is the original formula.
