Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland at night to regulate our circadian rhythm (sometimes called the sleep wake cycle). As we age the amount of melatonin we produce reduces resulting in many older people sleeping less and having a lower quality of sleep. Formulated by the world’s foremost melatonin expert Dr Walter Pierpaoli, unlike any other melatonin supplement on the market Melatonin Zn Se mimics the natural night peak of melatonin to leave you feeling refreshed and alert the following day.
Melatonin is vital to protect our hormonal system, regulate immunity and repair our body’s cells. It is commonly used by shift workers and also to treat jet lag and age related sleep disorders, but its abilities go far beyond simply its sleep inducing properties.
Melatonin is an extremely effective antioxidant, in fact on a molecule to molecule basis, melatonin has proved to be significantly more efficient in neutralizing the toxic hydroxyl radical than the two well-known free radical scavengers, glutathione and mannitol. Likewise, melatonin is roughly twice as effective as vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) at scavenging the peroxyl radical which is generated during lipid peroxidation.
Melatonin’s effect on longevity is well documented; in fact laboratory tests on rats and mice have demonstrated that melatonin increased their lifespans by 20%. Experts believe melatonin is a vital anti-aging product because of its positive effect on the aging immune system, its protection of the cardiovascular system, its ability to increase growth hormone production and above all its capacity to limit free radical damage.
Age related macular degeneration (AMD) comes in two forms, wet and dry and is a notoriously difficult disorder to treat but is commonly linked to blindness.
A recent 24 month study (published in Ann. NY Acad. Sci. 1057:384-392) with 100 patients showed that after 6 months, patients taking 3mg of Melatonin Zn Se daily had halted the progression of their age related macular degeneration and at 12 months showed reversal of their AMD which continued until the trial ended at 24-months.
There are two simple reasons, firstly the unique formula created by Dr Pierpaoli and secondly the timed release which is unlike any other melatonin on the market.
In addition to the pharmaceutical grade melatonin used in Dr Pierpaoli’s formula it also contains carefully balanced synergistic ingredients Zinc and Selenium, these vital trace elements help repair cells and render Melatonin Zn Se even more effective.
But the most significant factor is that Dr Pierpaoli’s research led him to perfect a formula to exactly mimic the pineal glands release of Melatonin, meaning Melatonin Zn Se is the only melatonin supplement to follow nature’s own night peak.
This graph highlights that compares Dr Pierpaoli’s melatonin formula (Red line) to the natural release of melatonin (dark Blue line) and to two common types of melatonin supplements (light blue and green line) to demonstrate that ordinary sublingual melatonin peaks too soon and that time released formulas peak too late.
Take half to one 3mg tablets at bedtime only. Never take more than two. Only use Melatonin Zn Se when you are prepared to sleep and have the light switched off, because light entering the eye destroys Melatonin.
Melatonin supplements have become widely available but at Antiaging Systems we offer a supplement that goes far beyond the run of the mill melatonin stocked by supermarkets and health shops, no other melatonin offers the endorsement of Dr Pierpaoli or the exact formula used in all of his numerous clinical trials. If you’ve tried other melatonin and didn’t notice any significant effect, then we highly recommend you try Dr Pierpaoli’s Melatonin Zn Se for a superior experience.
For those who wish to use smaller doses of Melatonin we now stock Mela Pro a melatonin liquid which can be administered in doses below 1mg.

Hello, If someone is taking 55mcg of selenium daily from sprouted garlic, would it be dangerous to use Melatonin ZnSe as it has 50 mcg? I have heard that selenium can be toxic if taken in excess. Thank you. AE
Selenium can be toxic at high levels, the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) of the Institute of Medicine recently set the tolerable upper intake level (UL) for selenium at 400 mcg/day in adults, so you are still well below that.
I have been a problem sleeper for years, with difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, prescription sleep medications, most of which I cannot tolerate, and also natural sleep aids (including many brands of melatonin), which don’t seem to work on me. I read about Melatonin MZS on the IAS website, and decided to give it a try. I’ve been using it for a month, and from the first night I found that I can now fall asleep far more easily, with an overall improvement in sleep quality. Melatonin MZS is superior to any other melatonin product I have tried (and I tried many!). Combined with a tiny dose of Neurontin, I now can also sleep through the night! I highly recommend this product.
I have been using Dr Pierpaoli’s melatonin for 6 weeks and the results are hard to believe. It appears to have kick started my thyroid gland as my tests are back to normal and I have not had any thyroid medication for 2 and a half months. Almost every symptom has disappeared.
I gave some of my tablets to my husband who is also pretty excited about this as he claims that he does not have to get up to the bathroom during the night.
Other features we’ve experienced is better and deeper sleep, more energy and awaking feeling well rested. This in turn has allowed us to exercise for 45 minutes with ease. Incidentally,we are 66 and 61 years old

I had to write to say how impressed I am with this supplement. It works! This is a most excellent formulation of Melatonin and I am now looking forward to receiving my next order. I am really grateful to have this kind of help during my difficult menopausal years.
I found that the difference with Melatonin Zn Se ® is very substantial. Normally I have to take at least 9mg of other Melatonin’s to aid my sleep, but I found that 3mg of Melatonin Zn Se ® was much more effective. So much so, that I am now only using half a tablet!

Melatonin Zn Se ® represents a breakthrough in the use of Melatonin supplements; call it genius or luck, but my patients are now obtaining excellent results with it!
Walter Pierpaoli, MD
Melatonin Zn Se ® is without doubt the most effective Melatonin I’ve ever used. Normally I haven’t noticed any strong sleep enhancement effects with other types, but Melatonin Zn Se ® almost knocks me out!
