What is Melatonin and where does it come from?
Melatonin is a natural hormone that supports normal sleep cycles. It is produced by the pineal gland, which is located in the brain. 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, which supports normal sleep cycles.
How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?
Melatonin researchers themselves have yet to determine the optimum doses for various users. Individual needs vary considerably depending on differences in metabolism. For supporting normal sleep cycles, larger doses are not necessarily more effective than smaller doses. (If you feel groggy the next morning, the dose you have taken was too high; if you do not experience a deep restful sleep, your dose may have been too low). Research findings indicate that the lowest potency of melatonin can usually support natural sleep patterns.
