Have you done this pose❓❓❓❓(TAG 2 FRIENDS) Begin on your hands and knees. Center your breath, and begin to let your thoughts slow down. Turn your awareness inward. Spread your knees wide apart while keeping your big toes touching. Rest your buttocks on your heels. Those with very tight hips can keep their knees and thighs together. Sit up straight and lengthen your spine up through the crown of your head. On an exhalation, bow forward, draping your torso between your thighs. Your heart and chest should rest between or on top of your thighs. Allow your forehead to come to the floor. Keep your arms long and extended, palms facing down. Press back slightly with your hands to keep your buttocks in contact with your heels. Lengthen from your hips to your armpits, and then extend even further through your fingertips. For deeper relaxation, bring your arms back to rest alongside your thighs with your palms facing up. Completely relax your elbows. Let your upper back broaden. Soften and relax your lower back. Allow all tension in your shoulders, arms, and neck to drain away. Keep your gaze drawn inward with your eyes closed. Hold for up to a minute or longer, breathing softly. To release the pose, gently use your hands to walk your torso upright to sit back on your heels.
Melatonin is a hormone that acts as an antioxidant and controls your body's internal clock and women's menstrual cycles. It may also improve immune function and have an effect on the aging process, since children have more melatonin than adults. People sometimes take melatonin supplements to increase their melatonin levels. . . Walnut Melatonin Content Consuming walnuts can increase your blood levels of melatonin, according to a study published in September 2005 in "Nutrition." In this study, walnuts were found to contain about 3.5 nanograms of melatonin per gram, and when rats were fed walnuts, their blood melatonin and antioxidant levels both increased, showing that consuming walnuts may be beneficial for people who want to increase their blood levels of this hormone. The typical dose of melatonin supplements used for insomnia or jet lag is between 0.5 and 5 milligrams taken an hour before you go to bed, starting with the lowest dose and increasing the dosage as necessary.
