The main ingredient used in The Original Sleep Patch 500 is melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the body. It is generally secreted at night. Normally levels are the greatest during the normal hours of sleep. The level of melatonin in the body rapidly increases in the late evening, peaks after midnight and decreases toward the morning. Melatonin promotes sleep by fixing abnormalities in sleep-wake cycles. As we get older, many produce insufficient amounts of Melatonin naturally. This may cause sleep problems. A solution for many who suffer from sleep deprivation, may be to take Melatonin as a supplement. We also added St. John's wort to the formula due its known relaxing effects and its historical use for anxiety and mild depression.
