Melatonin is the body’s own natural sleep hormone, produced in the brain each evening when darkness falls. It is the most popular natural sleep aid that is both effective and safe to use so far. Human body has its own “biological clock” that prepares the body for sleep. When this natural rhythm is disrupted due to various reasons, difficulty of sleeping results as consequences. Also, melatonin diminishes with age. Researches show that taking a melatonin supplement before bedtime resets the biological clock, improves sleep quality, increases total sleep time, and reduces daytime fatigue. In addition, a melatonin supplement restores body’s own melatonin levels and produces more sedative effect by inhibiting the activity of the brain’s reticular activating system, which controls the wakeful state.
