Melatonin is a simple natural synthesized molecule, in addition to the pineal gland, it can also be found in numerous other organs and tissues such as, for example, the retina, intestinal mucosa, in megakaryocytes and in platelets. Melatonin is omnipresent in nature: it has also been found in many plants, including many for food use. In humans it is mainly synthesized by the pineal gland, which regulates the synthesis and cyclic secretion of hormones in our organism and is responsible for the nocturnal peak of melatonin. The nocturnal melatonin peak initiates a sequence of effects that keep the body in sync with the physiological cyclicity of hormones and cells. It is during childhood that the production of Melatonin reaches its peak, then begins to gradually decrease and dwindle away until it disappears in old age.
Melatonin Night Peak
The uniqueness of Pierpaoli Melatonin Zinc-Selenium lies in that it has been developed with intent to achieve a peak release of melatonin between 1 and 3 a.m. comparable to that produced in the same time slot by the pineal gland during youth.
According to my research, by replicating the physiological nocturnal peak typical of youth, you are helping the pineal gland to regenerate and stay young and to produce molecules that regulate the entire hormonal system also called "neuroendocrine” system. It helps preserve the biological rhythms that control hormones and immunity, as well as circadian synchronization (physiological cyclicity) of the neuroendocrine system that regulates the body's natural metabolic and immunological functions. Result: it favors the normalization of all endocrine, immunological, and metabolic functions.
Why is 1 milligram enough?
Melatonin does not have a quantitative pharmacological value, as has been demonstrated in hundreds of scientific journals, but is only necessary to “rest” the pineal gland. The “physiological” (dose-dependent) effect of taking Melatonin is obtained within the range of physiological values of the endogenous plasma melatonin (50-200 pg / ml) with equal doses, in a young healthy adult, at 0.1-0.3 mg. It has been proven that doses of 0.3 - 0.5 mg are already effective and are able to perfectly imitate a youthful nocturnal peak. Administering 0.3 mg doses of Melatonin to adult males will result in blood levels close to physiological levels. A 0.3 mg dose of Melatonin is in fact sufficient to increase the level of Melatonin in blood about 120 picograms per milliliter, a level that corresponds to the nocturnal peak of melatonin in youth.
It should, however, be considered that individual needs may vary according to differences in metabolism. Precisely because everybody has a different intestinal absorption, I prudentially suggest taking 1 to 3 mg. There is no risk of overdose. Melatonin is water-soluble, and the excess quantity is eliminated by kidneys in the urine. During a clinical study, a daily dose of 6 grams (or 6,000 times higher than recommended) was given to some women for a long period of time without the appearance of any side effects. In fact, as we have said, a dose of 0.3 - 1.0 mg Melatonin Zinc-Selenium tablets is normally sufficient to return the nocturnal peak of melatonin to youthful levels and to saturate the organism during the night.
The pineal gland (or epiphysis), which regulates the synthesis and cyclical secretion of hormones in our body, Melatonin Plasma Levels Decline Rapidly with Ageproduces melatonin. As it ages, it produces increasingly less melatonin. During childhood, melatonin production reaches its maximum peak. It then begins to decline slowly: at about 45, there is a further drop and at around 80 the level of melatonin in the body of an otherwise healthy individual is less than half that of a young individual.
Hormones and all molecules in the body closely follow a day-night (circadian rhythms), sun-moon and seasons cycle (especially light and temperature). These cycles are the foundation of health. Aging is also due to the break in the synchronized relationship between circadian/seasonal and hormonal rhythms. This relationship is regulated by the structures of the nervous system forming the hypothalamic-pituitary-pineal brain circuit, which integrates and synchronizes the night-day cycles of the synthesis and secretion of all hormones. Aging in humans is, therefore, certainly linked to a genetic program, but the expression of this program is precisely the circadian periodicity of the hormone system.
In turn, day and night hormonal cycles and rhythms are closely controlled by the stimulation of the pineal gland, which integrates and sends back messages to the endocrine glands.
he pineal gland (or epiphysis), which regulates the synthesis and cyclical secretion of hormones in our body, Melatonin Plasma Levels Decline Rapidly with Ageproduces melatonin. As it ages, it produces increasingly less melatonin.
During childhood, melatonin production reaches its maximum peak. It then begins to decline slowly: at about 45, there is a further drop and at around 80 the level of melatonin in the body of an otherwise healthy individual is less than half that of a young individual. Levelling until the complete disappearance of the nocturnal melatonin peak, in addition to the constant reduction of zinc levels with aging, are tell-tale signals of the body's aging and of the decline of hormonal control over our essential functions, including sleep, strength, adaptation to temperatures, sexual vigor, resistance to infections and so forth.
It is, therefore, a matter of preventing this trend by administering a correct amount of melatonin to maintain a constant nocturnal peak typical of youth. By doing so, you are helping the pineal gland and, therefore, the entire body to recover that youthful condition that is essential to preserve the biological rhythms that control hormones and immunity, as well as circadian synchronization (physiological cyclicity) of the entire hormonal system that closely Normal Melatonin Peaksregulates natural metabolic and immunological functions. This favors, accordingly, the normalization of all immunological, metabolic and endocrine functions.
Since the pineal gland produces melatonin only at night, by taking the correct amount of melatonin at night (and obtaining the corresponding melatonin peak during the night), the pineal gland no longer needs to produce melatonin through a very complex synthesis process and "goes to rest”. This way, you can help to preserve and protect the functional integrity of the pineal gland and, therefore, restore all hormonal rhythms in addition to slowing down aging (which is certainly a clearly genetically programmed process in the brain, but which is expressed through hormonal regulation).
Why Zinc and Selenium?
Zinc and selenium are two molecules that cooperate and synergize with melatonin to regulate and resynchronize hormonal, metabolic and immune functions which are altered during aging. For instance, a number of studies and experiments have shown that zinc can help to redress immunodepression generated by aging and other hormonal and metabolic alterations typical of old age. Furthermore, with age, zinc is not absorbed enough through the bowels and is a certain indicator of aging (elderly people have very low zinc levels) and must, therefore, be supplemented to prevent alteration of immunity.
For this reason, in Pierpaoli Melatonin, the three fundamental anti-aging molecules (melatonin, zinc and selenium) are combined in a single synergistic blend, which is designed to achieve the maximum beneficial effect in the metabolic and immunobiological system of people who take it.
To assess the beneficial effects of Pierpaoli® Melatonin Zinc-Selenium, all you need is a normal blood test before you start taking it and then check again after 6 months or a year (in the absence of diseases, we recommend that you always measure FT3, FT4, TSH, prolactin and testosterone).
Melatonin, Zinc gluconate, Seleniomethionine and Mannitol
Instruction for use:
We recommend taking one tablet of Pierpaoli’s Melatonin Zinc-Selenium in the evening half an hour before going to sleep, and in any case preferably between 10 p.m. and midnight.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Supplements are not intended as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children under three years of age, do not take while pregnant, keep at a temperature below 25° C and protect from light. Excessive use may cause laxative effects.
Safety considerations for Pierpaoli’s Melatonin Zinc-Selenium
The use of Melatonin at the recommended doses is safe. Melatonin is generally well tolerated and has no side effects. No harmful or dangerous side effects have been identified in the 20 years during which tens of millions of people have taken Melatonin. Numerous scientific publications and studies confirm the safety and beneficial effects of Melatonin. Melatonin is practically free of contraindications and clinically relevant undesirable effects when taken according to instructions.
Pierpaoli’s Melatonin Zinc-Selenium does not create addiction or dependency. Stopping the administration of exogenous Melatonin, the pineal gland resumes synthesizing the endogenous molecule in physiological quantities.
For people taking medication before starting with Pierpaoli’s Melatonin-Zinc-Selenium, as more generally, with any other type of dietary supplement, we recommend consulting with your doctor. Although the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic characteristics of Melatonin are theoretically modulated by other active substances, at the moment there are no known interactions that are of particular concern from a clinical viewpoint.
Special population groups
For precautionary purposes, we recommend that you always consult your doctor before taking Melatonin if you suffer from: severe hepatic impairment and rheumatoid arthritis, given that, to date, there is not a great number of clinical observations in patients, it is necessary to validate the studies that prove the beneficial effects of Melatonin in these categories of people. Given the lack of studies in this regard, taking Melatonin should be avoided during pregnancy and subsequently while breastfeeding. In the absence of specific disorders healthy children and adolescents, with a lifestyle that does not affect the biological circadian rhythms (sleep-wake) usually do not suffer from inhibitions of the endogenous production of Melatonin and, therefore, unless a different specialised assessment proves otherwise, do not need to take Melatonin.
Prolonged use The use of Melatonin has been demonstrated as being safe in the short and middle term (6-18 months), even at higher doses.
However, for precautionary purposes, we advise you to inform your doctor if you use it for prolonged periods.

Formula KKS Algaε® Dr. Pierpaoli (Sea weeds)
Algae Klamath, Kombu and Spirulina food supplement with Alfalfa (Medicago Sativa). Essential mix that acts on the stimulation of metabolism on the metabolism of lipids with supportive and restorative actions.
The KKS Algae Formula is specifically formulated to contain appropriate percentages of Klamath, Kombu and Spirulina algae, as well as alfalfa to supply the body with balanced doses of precious minerals.
Supplementation with the Algae KKS Formula is indicated:
• to favor endocrine stimulation;
• to support thyroid function;
• to support oxidative processes and increased basal metabolism;
• beneficial for maintaining a good mood;
• beneficial for metabolising lipids;
• beneficial for stimulating metabolism;
Average values per daily dose (2 tablets):
Klamath Algae 600 mg, Alfalfa 300 mg, Kombu Algae 200 mg, Spirulina 200 mg.
Thanks to the rich content of organic iodine in its algae, it stimulates enzymatic activity and thyroid function (including the synthesis of thyroid hormones T3 and T4). And since the thyroid controls metabolism, it actively increases basal metabolism.
One very important aspect of the KKS Algae Formula is its chelating action on heavy metals present in the body, since the algae it contains are capable of capturing, binding and eliminating extremely toxic elements, such as mercury, lead and cadmium, in the form of aggregates.
The importance of minerals:
Minerals—which algae are rich of—are an essential part of 'enzymes', or proteins which act as a vehicle for the synthesis of any type of molecule. Zinc, for example, is an essential part of more than 200 enzymes. And if an individual does not age well, zinc is lost every day. Our studies confirm that the alteration of our biological clock leads to a progressive loss and alteration of the endo- and extra-cellular concentration of several minerals. This loss and imbalance is due to hormonal desynchronization which leads to huge changes in the cell membrane, the element that ‘filters’, accumulates, loses or retains minerals: if this membrane suffers changes, the cell is no longer able to eliminate or retain essential minerals, such as potassium, calcium, sodium and zinc. Therefore, without a balanced preservation of essential minerals, the cell ‘goes berserk’, ages and dies.
How can you maintain the electrolytic balance of minerals inside and outside the cell? And how can you provide the body with the minerals needed to make thousands of enzymes work? A good help lies in this original KKS Algae Formula
is a unicellular microalgae of green-blue color (due to the presence of phycocyanin) that grows in alkaline waters. Called "food of the future,” it contains a large amount of nutrients. It contains more than 65% proteins (vegetable) which can be easily assimilated, carotenoids, including vitamin A, all group B vitamins, vitamin E, mineral salts, trace elements, enzymes, antioxidants and fatty acids which are essential for the body. The most ancient in evolutionary terms, it has been known since the times of the Aztec warriors who would eat it to stay physically strong and maintain resistance to fatigue.
is a seaweed of dark brown color, rich in iodine, phosphorus, potassium, glutamic and alginic acid, vitamin A, B1, B2, C and fibers. It supplies iodine, a mineral of which it is particularly rich. It has been determined that the world population (excluding certain populations of Japan and a few other nations) suffers from a severe shortage of this mineral without which the thyroid gland cannot work.
is an algae that lives in the volcanic lake of the same name in Oregon (USA). It has a high nutritional profile, as it contains over 30 minerals and trace elements essential to health and 12 vitamins, including all those of group B and the important and a high concentration of the rare vitamin B12. It also contains a variety of molecules and pigments, essential amino acids, proteins, fatty acids and other elements necessary for the body.
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)
it has been known to give energy to animals that feed on it, since ancient time, including Arabian horses. It is taken as a source of proteins, vitamins, enzymes and mineral salts. In agriculture, thanks its deep roots, it is able to bring precious minerals to the surface that enrich soil at the surface, as in the case of corn crops.
It is recommended to take 2 tablets a day, between meals.
Instructions for use
It is recommended to take two tablets daily on empty stomach.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Supplements are not intended as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children under three years of age, do not take while pregnant, keep at a temperature below 25° C and protect from light.
