Fact 1: The body produces melatonin naturally

The human body naturally produces melatonin in response to darkness. As the sun sets and the environment becomes darker, the pineal gland in the brain gets triggered, releasing melatonin into the bloodstream. This natural process helps prepare the body for sleep. However, factors like artificial light, electronic screens, and night shift work can disrupt the natural melatonin production, leading to sleep difficulties.

Fact 2: Melatonin supplements do not improve sleep quality

While melatonin supplements are commonly used as a sleep aid, they may not necessarily improve sleep quality. Research suggests that melatonin supplements are more effective for addressing jet lag and shift work sleep disorders. Individuals with insomnia or other sleep disorders may benefit more from other treatment options. It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before using melatonin supplements.
