What Is It?
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, the organ that regulates the body’s wake/sleep/wake cycle. The hormone is activated by darkness and depressed by light.
Uses For Melatonin
Promotes Natural Sleep Cycles: Melatonin nutritionally augments the functioning of the pineal gland, supporting the body’s natural sleep cycle.

A double blind, placebo-controlled, parallel design study suggested that melatonin supplementation enhanced sleep onset and sleep quality in subjects. One double blind placebo-controlled study involving an international flight crew suggested that melatonin supported healthy sleep and recovery patterns in these individuals.
