For common travelers or individuals that deal with sporadic sleep patterns for any myriad of reasons, Melatonin can help. Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain. Its secretion is determined by light and seasonal patterns and dictates the circadian rhythms (sleep/wake cycle) of the body. Supplementation has produced remarkable benefits in individuals who work night shifts, travel across multiple time zones or have difficulty sleeping.*
Our melatonin is a natural supplement, identical to the melatonin our body produces, and it acts similarly. While it can be found in foods, there is generally not enough to receive therapeutic benefit from whole foods that contain melatonin. Supplementation can help induce sleep, as well as increase the quality and duration of sleep.*
Melatonin is a very small hormone that gets secreted based on receptors in the eyes dependent on light and dark and helps dictate our circadian rhythm. Melatonin activates two different receptors in the superchiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus. This triggers a cascade of motion in the SCN, which is the portion of the brain responsible for controlling the circadian rhythm and reacting with many other regions of the brain.
