What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone made by the pineal gland , a small gland in the brain. Melatonin helps control your sleep and wake cycles. Very small amounts of it are found in foods such as meats, grains, fruits, and vegetables. You can also buy it as a supplement.

What does natural Melatonin do in the body?
Your body has its own internal clock that controls your natural cycle of sleeping and waking hours. In part, your body clock controls how much melatonin your body makes. Normally, melatonin levels begin to rise in the mid- to late evening, remain high for most of the night, and then drop in the early morning hours.
Light affects how much melatonin your body produces. During the shorter days of the winter months, your body may produce melatonin either earlier or later in the day than usual. This change can lead to symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), or winter . Natural melatonin levels slowly drop with age. Some older adults make very small amounts of it or none at all.

 
Melatonin for Occasional Sleeplessness
Melatonin is a neurohormone produced in humans by the pineal gland. A favorite of travelers, it governs the body's circadian rhythms,
helping the body ease into restful sleep. Melatonin is also a potent antioxidant.
 
How does Melatonin work?
 
Melatonin controls our sleep-wake cycle, the circadian rhythm. When it gets dark, the pineal gland begins releasing the hormone melatonin, signaling the body that it’s time to sleep. Extra melatonin in appropriate concentrations supports this process, resulting in gentle, restful sleep for those times of occasional sleeplessness.
 
Why might we want to supplement with Melatonin?
 
Many people report that they are not getting enough sleep, so melatonin can help with occasional sleeplessness. Our bodies naturally produce melatonin from serotonin, but as we age, our ability to produce optimal levels may decrease. Because melatonin helps to regulate our circadian rhythm, melatonin supplements are a favorite among travelers to help reset their internal clocks when they change time zones.
 
The hormone Melatonin produces a number of health benefits in terms of your immune system. It's a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that helps combat inflammation. In fact, melatonin is so integral to your immune system that a lack of it causes your thymus gland, a key component of your immune system, to atrophy. Melatonin may even have a role in slowing the aging of the brain.
 
The Benefit of Sublinguals
 
Some nutrients, such as Melatonin, may break down during liver metabolism.The sublingual form is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels under the tongue and in the cheeks, bypassing the liver and allowing for quick entry into the system.*
