Variability in Time Release Melatonin Tablets

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

Melatonin is a naturally produced hormone regulating the sleep-wake cycle. Supplements for melatonin are commonly used to aid people with trouble sleeping but are not FDA regulated. Studies have shown that there is a large difference between the dosage on packaging and the concentration of melatonin in individual tablets. The purpose of our experiment was to investigate if time-release capsules release a gradual dosage or if the capsules release their dosages more quickly than company claims.
