Fact 3: Light levels can affect melatonin effectiveness

The effectiveness of melatonin in promoting sleep is influenced by light levels. Exposure to bright light, especially blue light emitted by electronic devices, can suppress melatonin production or delay its release. This can make it harder to fall asleep at night. To optimize melatonin production, it’s recommended to limit exposure to bright light, especially in the evening and before bedtime.

Fact 4: Blue light makes sleeping difficult

Blue light, which is commonly emitted by smartphones, tablets, and computer screens, can have a significant impact on sleep quality. Exposure to blue light in the evening can interfere with the body’s natural melatonin production, making it difficult to fall asleep. It’s advisable to limit screen time before bed or use blue light filters and apps that reduce blue light emissions.
