Sufficient good sleep is essential for physical and overall mental health. Difficulties falling asleep are common and at least every third adult suffers from insomnia. Difficulties falling asleep may be caused, for instance, by person’s concerns and stress. In addition, young people and menopause women often have difficulties falling asleep at night. Travelling across several time zones may also affect sleep.
Melatonin is a natural hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain and it participates in the control of the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin secretion increases in the dark and it has a soporific effect. Thus, melatonin facilitates falling asleep. Taking melatonin food supplements is also an option to get melatonin.
