What is melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone synthesized in the pineal gland in the brain. It is involved with receptor binding of gamma-aminobenzoic acid (GABA). There appears to be little difference in secretion of melatonin between men and women.
Influenced by light and dark
Natural production of melatonin is influenced by light and darkness. People produce less melatonin with light, and more during darkness.
Melatonin production declines with age. Toddlers have the highest levels.
Research with melatonin supplementation began over 2 decades ago.
Low levels of melatonin can occur in individuals with recurring sleep trouble and in individuals with certain health conditions, particularly those that interrupt sleep.
Melatonin has been shown to be effective at supporting circadian rhythm and healthy sleep patterns.
Various doses of melatonin are being investigated for different applications.
Emerging areas of research include melatonin levels and relationship to health conditions, ability to improve response to some medications, pre and post surgery benefits, mental health, acute immunity, sexual performance, and bone mineralization.
Melatonin has anti-oxidant benefits.
In general, melatonin is taken in the evening or just before bedtime. It may cause initial drowsiness*.
