Melatonin is a hormone that regulates the body’s sleep cycle and is secreted by the pineal gland, a pea-sized gland in the brain. Darkness encourages the body to produce more melatonin to prepare it for sleep while daylight causes melatonin levels to be lower. (1)* Melatonin is often called “the sleep hormone” for this reason.
Due to its role in regulating sleep cycles, it is often taken as a natural sleep remedy for sleep disorders. Studies have indicated that melatonin may help with some sleep disorders, including jet lag, delayed sleep phase disorder (a sleep problem in which it typically takes several hours to fall asleep), insomnia, and shift work related sleep issues. (2, 3, 4)*
Melatonin is considered a safe supplement, particularly as a short term remedy for sleep problems.*
