What is melatonin?

Melatonin is a natural hormone that plays a role in your sleep-wake cycle. It is mainly synthesized by the pineal gland located in the brain. As a substance secreted by the pineal gland during sleep, melatonin is particularly important for maintaining the sleep cycle. After age 30, melatonin production begins to decline, leaving it at about half its level by age 45, and then vanishes after age 70. Melatonin is an indispensable natural sleep factor in human body.

Melatonin is released in the dark and is inhibited by light. As the sun goes down and darkness increases, the pineal gland begins to secrete melatonin, which usually occurs after 9pm. An increase in the level of melatonin in the blood sends a signal to the brain, making the brain less alert and you will feel sleepy.

Melatonin secretion peaks in the middle of the night (between 2 and 4 in the morning) and gradually decreases in the second half of the night.Nearly 80% of melatonin is synthesized at night.

The production and secretion of melatonin began to decline with sunlight. This keeps you alert and wakes you up in the morning.

For people with sleep problems, melatonin can be used as a sleep aid supplement in the form of pills, liquids and chewable tablets.
