Melatonin: Promotes Healthy Sleep Patterns

In numerous studies, Melatonin was shown to: 

• Treat insomnia
• Enhance sleep quality
• Fight jet lag symptoms
• Slow the ageing process
• Relieve symptoms of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
• Decrease ocular pressure 
• May prevent Parkinson’s Disease

What is Melatonin and where does it come from?

Melatonin is the hormone responsible for regulating the body’s biological clock. It is produced by the pineal gland, which is located in the brain. Melatonin helps to regulate sleep. During daylight, the pineal gland in the brain produces the neurotransmitter serotonin, but at night, the pineal gland stops producing serotonin and instead makes melatonin. This melatonin release helps trigger sleep.

Why take Melatonin?

• Insomnia: The ability to fall asleep and stay asleep may get a boost from melatonin supplementation. Some studies of young and elderly adults have shown that taking a small amount of melatonin before bedtime helps to both hasten sleep and improve its quality. These benefits were seen in insomniacs as well as in individuals who struggle with only occasional sleep problems.

• Sleep problems caused by pain or stress: Frequent night-time awakenings can occur as a result of chronic pain or stress. In such situations, melatonin may help by encouraging sounder slumber.

• Jet lag: If you're working a night shift or are traveling across time zones, melatonin supplements may help your body to overcome any disorientation and quickly reestablish a normal sleep pattern. Recent studies of airline personnel and others who travel long distances found that melatonin supplements significantly relieved jet lag symptoms. This was true regardless of whether they were flying eastbound or westbound. However, not all studies have found melatonin to be superior to a placebo for such jet lag symptoms as fatigue, daytime sleepiness and impaired alertness.

• Anti-Ageing: Animal research indicates that melatonin may be of value in extending life--elderly mice administered the supplement lived 25% longer than their cohorts in one study--although much more investigation is needed before firm conclusions can be made about its value for humans in this regard. Melatonin's antioxidant properties may help to stave off illnesses commonly related to ageing, such as heart disease and cataracts. The hormone may boost immune-system function as well, which can weaken with age.

• SAD-related depression: A number of people who feel quite normal and energetic in summer become depressed and sluggish in winter, when sunlight is weaker and less abundant. Low melatonin levels may also be present in individuals who react in this way. According to a handful of preliminary studies, such individuals are said to be suffering from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and may experience a significant improvement in mood if they take several tiny doses (0.1 mg) of melatonin in the afternoon. Study participants who failed to improve took either a large single dose in the morning or no melatonin at all. More studies are needed in this area.

• Ocular Pressure: Taken in small amounts, Melatonin has been 
shown to lower pressure in the eyes. Since studies have only been done on healthy eyes, it is uncertain whether melatonin would be an effective treatment for glaucoma. 

• Parkinson’s Disease: Low melatonin levels may cause the failure of 
neurotransmitters, leading to Parkinson’s Disease. Supplementation may 
prevent this from occurring.
