Melatonin supports restful sleep and is ideal when youâre experiencing occasional sleeplessness. Itâs a drug-free sleep aid that supports sound, quality sleep. One tablet at bedtime is an easy way to support a good nightsâ rest, so you can awaken refreshed and ready to tackle your day with renewed purpose.
So how does it work? Melatonin is a hormone made by a small factory found just above the middle of your brain. It helps your body know when itâs time to sleep and wake up. Normally, your body makes more melatonin at night. Levels usually start to go up in the evening once the sun sets. They drop in the morning when the sun goes up. The amount of light you get each day plus your own body clock sets how much melatonin your body makes. You should take melatonin when you have insomnia â trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Melatonin is also taken for delayed sleep phase disorder. A good example is when you have a problem falling asleep before 2 a.m.
It can also be taken for jobs that interrupt the normal sleeping schedule. Itâs used to treat or prevent jet lag, too. Thatâs the tired, run-down feeling some get when theyâre traveling across time zones.
