Nussbaum – What do melatonin and vitamin D have in common? Both compounds respond to light. While the concentration of the “sleep hormone” melatonin in the body is regulated in a light-dependent manner, the formation of vitamin D in the skin takes place with the help of UV light. And both substances in spray form have been part of the Hevert-Arzneimittel range since February and March 2021. CalmNight Hevert Melatonin Spray supports the natural sleep-wake rhythm with the “sleep hormone” melatonin by shortening the time to fall asleep and relieving jet lag. The “sun hormone” vitamin D supports the normal function of the immune system, bones and muscles. The advantage of the sprays is their easy application and quick and direct absorption through the oral mucosa.
Melatonin und Vitamin D
In fact, vitamin D and melatonin have more in common than you might think. Both are (pro) hormones that react depending on light, both can be produced by the body itself. Melatonin, also known as the “sleep hormone”, is increasingly formed in the dark and controls the body’s sleep-wake cycle. When daylight falls, the release of melatonin is inhibited. Above all, an irregular sleep-wake rhythm, such as the z. B. is the case with sleep disorders, shift work and long-distance travel, hinders the production of melatonin, which can lead to sleep problems. In addition, the body’s own production of the sleep hormone melatonin slowly decreases with age. The production of vitamin D is also dependent on light, because vitamin D is formed by the body when it is exposed to sunlight. However, the body’s own vitamin D formation is only possible to a very limited extent in Germany in the winter months, and in the summer months it is also impaired by many factors such as sun protection creams, clothing and medication intake. As with melatonin, the body’s own vitamin D production decreases with age.
Sleep well and strengthen the immune system
More and more people in Germany suffer from problems falling asleep and staying asleep. According to the last DAK report, even 80 percent of German employees. CalmNight Melatonin Hevert Spray shortens the time to fall asleep and alleviates jet lag. Shift workers and long-distance travelers, among others, for whom time differences disturb the natural sleep-wake cycle, but also everyone else who has problems falling asleep and staying asleep can benefit from taking the melatonin spray. Adults give one puff (= 1 mg of melatonin) in their mouths just before going to bed.
It is well known that good sleep is also very important for our immune system. In fact, the body’s production of defense cells is highest during sleep. The body is exposed to a large number of pathogens all year round, so a strong immune system is required. Vitamin D3 Hevert 1000 IU spray therefore not only helps to maintain the normal function of muscles and bones, but also supports the immune system. 1 spray contains 1000 IU of vitamin D.
