Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland starting from Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, this meaning that it belongs to that special group of amino acids that need to be integrated in the diet since we cannot synthesize them endogenously. In the body, it undergoes various metabolic reactions leading to the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin and then, through the latter and after further passages, of melatonin.
Melatonin reduces the time required to drift off*.
*The beneficial effect is obtained by taking 1 mg of melatonin shortly before bedtime.

Rhodiola, also known as arctic root, is characterised by species-specific phenolic glycosides , flavonoids, catechins and tannins. The most representative glycoside is salidroside (or rhodioloside) which has shown an effect (in vitro) on enzymes that degrade monoamines like serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine.
Lactium® contains α-casozepine, namely an active decapeptide that derives from milk proteins, typically produced by the baby during breastfeeding, which, according to current studies, causes the feeling of relaxation that is classical in babies after drinking milk. After weaning, it appears that we lose the ability to synthesize this decapeptide.
Thanks to the presence of these plant extracts, PINEANS® can be used to promote a feeling of relaxation and mental wellbeing, for example at times of high psychophysical stress.
Take 1 tablet of PINEANS® a day with a sip of water.
