Well-rested? – Aren't you fortunate!


What is ‘Nacht-Milchkristalle’?

Nacht-Milchkristalle can be loosely translated to "night milk crystals" – and they are just that! This crystalline powder is made from fat-free milk that is milked by night and is therefore naturally rich in melatonin. Through a special method of cold processing this night milk, milk crystals are created. One gram contains over one hundred times more melatonin than regular milk. Nacht-Milchkristalle is a food product, not medicine, and available prescription free.


What is melatonin?

Melatonin is also called "hormone of the night" and regulates the cycle of day and night in the human body. It is created in the pineal gland of the brain exclusively at night.

Besides synchronizing the day/night mechanism, the most mentioned use of melatonin in scientific literature is as a sleeping aid. It is often titled the "sleeping hormone":

  • “It is no secret, that melatonin improves the quality of sleep.” Klentze, M. (2004).
  • “Most  specialists agree on melatonin having a sleep aiding effect.” Gysling, E. (1997).
  • “A series of studies has shown that Melatonin has an acute sleep inducing effect. In fact, various studies have indicated an improvement of sleep even at low dosages.” Dr. C. S. Schlafmedizin GmbH (2004).


Decreasing melatonin production can lead to insomnia

The production of melatonin in the human body reaches its climax between 15-20 years of age and begins to decrease at around 25. With old age, melatonin levels are only at about 10-20% of their former amount. Less exercise, less work outdoors, the wrong dietary habits, stress, too much traveling, working by night and electromagnetic pollution are also factors that cause melatonin deficits. With Nacht-Milchkristalle you can increase the level of melatonin in your body.


How does melatonin get into the milk?

Milk has always contained traces of melatonin. It is not only found in humans, but also produced by many other mammals, such as sheep, cows and goats. The levels of melatonin in their milk varies depending on diet and the time of milking. It is formed in the pineal gland of the brain through the amino acid tryptophan and the organ specific  hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase. It is discharged into the bloodstream during the night. During lactation, melatonin ends up in the milk, thereby creating the basis for Nacht-Milchkristalle.


Light is the key

The discharge of melatonin is subject to the circadian rhythm and is stimulated or inhibited by light stimuli. A special light system, which simulates the luminous colors of the sun and corresponds to the ideal natural lighting conditions in the animals’ day/night cycle, as well as a diet of grass and herbs, which contain the amino acid tryptophan, lead to an increased nightly production of melatonin in the animals.


Alfalfa – a medicinal plant

In the production of milk containing melatonin, an over 2000 year old fodder and medicinal plant is used.

Whether an animal discharges a large or a small amount of melatonin does not only depend on lighting conditions. To achieve high levels of melatonin in milk, it is important the animals are fed plants rich in the amino acid tryptophan. These plants, though, are rare and expensive.

An over 2000 year old medicinal plant, which was imported from Persia in 450 B.C., has found a new use in the production of melatonin:




Like other legumes, alfalfa (also: lucerne) is capable of absorbing nitrogen from the air with the help of symbiotic rhizobia. It is therefore able to build proteins independently of the amount of nitrogen in the soil. Lucerne is used medicinally. Thanks to its long roots it can reach nutrients at extreme depths. Alfalfa is thereby perfectly suited for the production of high-melatonin milk.


Bioavailibilty of melatonin in milk

Nacht-Milchkristalle can help to increase the level of melatonin in the human body. Notably, this is done with the help of one of our most primordial foods: milk. In the natural matrix of milk, melatonin is characterized by a high bioavailabilty. Melatonin in milk is extremely lipophilic. It can easily overcome the blood brain barrier. Additionally, the matrix of milk protects melatonin until it is retrieved by the body and the milk is digested. In fact, it is digested by the human body extremely well without the risk of side effects.


Harvesting before sunrise

At a specific time at night, the concentration of melatonin in milk is at its highest. The milk has to be “harvested” before sunrise to make high-melatonin milk crystals. And it has to be done quickly, too. Once daylight reaches the cows’ eyes, their melatonin levels drop to zero within minutes.


Assisting the body’s own melatonin production

The body’s own production chain  to create melatonin is:


Tryptophan ⇒ Serotonin ⇒ Melatonin


Nacht-Milchkristalle are rich in tryptophan, an important amino acid. Tryptophan is essential to the body’s own production of melatonin. It stimulates the synthesis of melatonin within the body. Through high tryptophan levels in Nacht-Milchkristalle, the body has another source of melatonin at its disposal.


Further uses of melatonin

Melatonin is a hydrophilic derivative of amino acids. It functions as a hormone and antioxidant within the body. A number of neurobiological uses have been detected in humans, such as endogenic sleep induction, radical interception, as well as influence on the immune system, body temperature and brain function.


Consumption recommendation: Nacht-Milchkristalle taste good in your favorite drink, but even better in a glass of milk or other dairy products. Consume Nacht-Milchkristalle regularly before sleep.
