HEALTH BENEFITS

Lack of sleep suppresses immune function and is associated with a long list of health concerns. In fact, studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep are more likely to get sick. Importantly, lack of sleep may affect how quickly you recover after getting sick.

Adults need about 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. If you occasionally have trouble sleeping, taking a sleep promoting supplement like VitaMedica’s Melatonin can help support restful sleep.

Melatonin is a hormone and antioxidant produced by the pineal gland which regulates the body’s sleep/wake cycle. Melatonin is produced in the brain in response to darkness. Melatonin’s primary role is regulation of the body’s circadian rhythm, endocrine secretions and sleep patterns.

Studies indicate that melatonin facilitates the onset of sleep, sleep efficiency, immune activity and cytokine balance.

Stress, exposure to too much light at night (including blue light) and aging affect melatonin production. A decline in a number of hormones including melatonin is associated with immunosenescence – a decline in immune function with aging.

Supplementing with melatonin may improve your total sleep time, sleep quality and how long it takes to fall asleep. Taking melatonin can also help to reset your biological clock after jetlag.

In addition to supplementing with melatonin, you can ensure more restful sleep by following these practices: sticking to a sleep schedule, avoiding caffeine and a large meal right before bedtime, avoiding screen time prior to sleep and setting aside down time prior to going to sleep.

Melatonin is part of our Immune Support product line. These supplements are designed to support healthy immune system function. To learn more, visit the Immune Support Products page.

3. Should I Be Concerned with Taking Melatonin?

Unlike many sleep medications, you are not likely to become dependent on melatonin, become habituated to its use (diminished response after repeated use) or experience a hangover effect.  Short term use of melatonin is safe for most adults.  However, melatonin is not recommended for chronic insomnia.

4. Why is Melatonin Recommended for Use By Adults Only?

There is some evidence that melatonin is more likely to help older people than younger people or children.  This may be because production of this hormone declines with age.
