Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the back of the brain. Melatonin also occurs in small amounts in a variety of foods. In the body, melatonin appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical damage.

The prolonged release works better for me than the regular melatonin from this company. I'm struggling with terrible insomnia made worse by menopause and this does help quite a bit, but I still wake up half way through the night occasionally. It's far better than sleeping pills and worth a try if you can't sleep.
