What is Melatonin, how do melatonin supplements work and why you may want to take a melatonin supplement to help sleep.

Brief explanation of how melatonin works, what it does in our bodies, studies on supplemental melatonin and why it works.

Welcome to Sleepyhead’s mini-series  on sleep.  This time we’re diving into Melatonin.  Let’s take a look. 

What is melatonin?

Our bodies naturally make melatonin, a hormone responsible for controlling our sleep and wake cycle.  More specifically - melatonin is made in the Pineal Gland - a pea-sized gland located in brain, right behind our eyes.

During the day, the pineal gland is hard at work making Melatonin and storing it away.  Then, under low light levels, the pineal gland releases melatonin, creating a sleepy feeling that ultimately helps us fall asleep.  As we sleep, our pineal gland continues to release melatonin until it’s time for us to wake up.  Then, it goes back to producing and storing melatonin… and so the cycle continues.

Why Take Melatonin?

Melatonin production fluctuates from person to person – depending on age, lifestyle, diet, stress, sleep schedule, exposure to light and countless other factors.  If you suffer from occasional sleeplessness, your body may not be making the amount of melatonin that it needs.  Taking supplemental melatonin may fill this gap.


Prove it.  What Studies Have Been Done on Melatonin?

Melatonin results in significant and clinically meaningful improvements in sleep quality, morning alertness, sleep onset latency and quality of life…
— Alan Wade: University of Glasgow

Countless studies have been conducted on melatonin over the years.  We found the majority of those studies demonstrate melatonin’s safe effectiveness for combating occasional sleeplessness.  For example, Alan Wade of the University of Glasgow conducted a study in 2007 examining the effect of melatonin on 523 adults in a double-blind study vs a placebo.  He found, and I quote, “Melatonin results in significant and clinically meaningful improvements in sleep quality, morning alertness, sleep onset latency and quality of life…”  We could go on and on, but this gives you the gist.
