Is it OK to take REM Caps regularly?
Yes, we believe that it's perfectly acceptable and highly beneficial to use REM Caps on a nightly basis. This is primarily due to the melatonin component, which has the following benefits associated with it:
- Melatonin possesses neuroprotective effects - Age-related decline in the body's melatonin levels is associated with an increase potential for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
- Melatonin provides protection against stroke - Research has shown that a deficiency in melatonin is correlated with an increase in both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. Conversely, adequate bodily levels of melatonin reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure, which are some of the risk factors for stroke.
- Melatonin an extremely powerful antioxidant - One well-known nutritionist has stated that melatonin is "one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered with a greater range of effectiveness than vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta-carotene..." Another highly respected nutritional scientist writes, "Melatonin neutralizes one of the most damaging free radicals, and does so five times more effectively than the antioxidant enzyme glutathione..." Speaking of glutathione, melatonin increases the endogenous production of this powerful antioxidant.
- Melatonin possesses potential anti-aging benefits - Ongoing research is finding that melatonin may help extend lifespan by increasing levels of Sirt1, often referred to as the "longevity protein."
If you experience any issues with sleep, even if it's only occasionally, REM Caps is a "must have" product for you. However, even if you don't have sleep-related problems, given all the important roles that melatonin plays in the body, and with all of the benefits attributed to melatonin, we believe that REM Caps is a supplement that can and should be used regularly.
