The science behind melatonin

Melatonin is a naturally-produced hormone that helps regulate your body’s sleep-wake cycle. At night, your brain starts emitting melatonin, signaling to your body that it’s time for bed, and this continues all night until the sun rises. If you have low levels of melatonin, this can lead to trouble falling asleep. 

From exposure to blue light at night (like playing Words with Friends in bed) to a lack of daily exercise—several factors can alter your body’s clock and make it more difficult to sleep at night. The good news is that taking melatonin at night may help you fall asleep while you work on your sleep habits.

What is melatonin?

Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a hormone made by a pea-sized gland just above the middle part of the brain called the pineal gland. It regulates our central “clock,” which controls our sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is available as an over the counter sleep aid that can be taken to alleviate difficulty falling or staying asleep.

How do I use melatonin?


Typically, melatonin should be taken approximately 1 to 2 hours before going to bed with water.

What are potential side effects associated with melatonin?

The incidence of side effects of melatonin is low. The most common side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, abdominal cramps, hangover effects, irritability, and impaired balance. High doses of melatonin can worsen depression.

Is melatonin addictive?
